Beautiful, unique, and a hit with guests!

We are so glad that we chose to have our wedding at the Umlauf. Amanda was such a pleasure to work with and was prompt, professional, and kind in all of our meetings and conversations. The venue itself is gorgeous and has so many fun features that made for some very unique and beautiful wedding photos. The sculptures and greenery are so vibrant in the spring that we honestly didn't feel we had to do much more dressing up of the venue ourselves! The Umlauf was extremely easy to work with and did everything to make sure the day ran smoothly and that we had a great time and could just focus on having fun on our wedding day instead of worrying about the set up or take down. Our guests loved exploring the venue during the cocktail hour and reception, too. It was the perfect location for our 100-person wedding! Also, a random side-note that you may get lucky and be visited by some gorgeous wildlife during your wedding! Herons are my favorite birds, and two showed up during our reception in a show-stopping appearance that had everyone excited!(Photos by Leah Muse Photography!)

Wonderful wedding venue!

Umlauf was a beautiful location to host our wedding. Each venue has its own peculiarities and pros and cons, so make sure you understand them before you book (the garden is open to the public during the day and going late at Umlauf is not an option, as amplified sound must be turned off at 10 PM per Austin city ordinance). You’d probably want to go with mostly preferred vendors, which is what we did. That being said, we had a wonderful experience at Umlauf. Office staff were great to work with (Amanda was always very helpful and responsive). We fit our wedding of about 50 people underneath the pagoda for dinner which was the perfect setting. The garden was pretty remarkable for our ceremony. And despite that ordinance, we were still able to host a great dance party for our guests. We highly recommend Umlauf.

Beautiful even in the cold rain!

Amanda was amazing! Very quick to response and answer any questions we had, as well as accommodating! We were hoping to have a sunny day to be able to fully enjoy the garden, but the freezing weather and rain kicked in. The garden was still absolutely magical in the rain and I can’t wait to see our photos from the photographer! We had our reception under the terrace with a few heaters and it was still very comfortable. We were so thankful the Gallery was available to rent, as well!

I am happy to suggest the venue for clients looking for a beautiful that functions well for staging events.
