Umlauf Sculpture Gardens was an amazing venue for us to use for our wedding. We got married in February of 2017, and the weather and atmosphere was perfect. Jonathan Greiner and Ally Hinojosa were our points of contact though out the planning process. My spouse and I planned the wedding ourselves without a wedding planner, and Jonathan and Ally made the process so easy for us. They were quick about responding to our emails/ phone calls and did not seem bothered by the extensive amount of emails/phone calls we sent them. They were even great with working with our rental vendors to make sure that our tent and rentals were in the correct space (I do recommend going with their preferred vendors for the rentals...the preferred rental company is aware of all the do's and don'ts of the venue. It just helps the process run smoothly). Overall, the venue was beautiful, and my guests and I had a wonder evening.

I had my dream wedding at the Umlauf on Earth Day 2018. The representatives were so kind and patient and really helped me throughout the whole process. Affordable, convenient and beautiful with wonderful options to chose from.

We loved having our wedding at Umlauf. It's a unique venue that you can personalize and make your own. The different levels and spaces made it feel really special. It also provides a drop-dead gorgeous back-drop for photos--the green is amazing.
Worth noting that I was worried about the wedding feeling short bc of the band having to stop at 10pm, but I was totally wrong to worry about that--the length felt perfect. I think it's the case for any outdoor venue in-town, and we were really glad to be in town. The ceremony was at 6pm but guests started arriving at 5 or 5:15. We had cava served while they strolled the garden. We didn't do a format exit so we hung around a bit after the music stopped--which was fun. We sent our guests to Easy Tiger, and arrived there ourselves by 10:45 or so to an awesome after-party. We didn't have a reservation but there was room for party to fill many tables.
One more tip: use the chairs they offer. A great source of savings--that looked great!
As a Wedding Coordinator (3 Of Cups Events), I work closely both with my wedding clients and their venue of choice. I am happy to suggest the venue for clients looking for a beautiful that functions well for staging events. As a venue, UMLAUF Sculpture Garden is not only a time capsule housing the beautiful sculptures by Austin Artist Umlauf, but the lush green gardens, outdoor ceremony site, and covered trellis create the most beautiful landscape for weddings and special events. Clients can feel good about how their investment is benefitting the rich cultural arts. Venue Manager, Ally Hinojosa is always a delight to work with. She takes special care of all of her clients at UMLAUF and collaborative vendors as well! She is helpful in addressing questions and requests throughout the planning process. Her insight, as well as her Event Manager's on-site Day Of events are all knowledgeable and to be trusted. I look forward to working with UMLAUF clients every opportunity I get!
I've done several weddings at Umlauf and not only are the beautiful, everyone there is working so hard to make sure the couple has a great experience. Everyone there is genuine, down-to-earth, and caring. It's a wonderful venue for many special occasions!
Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum is a gorgeous venue that is truly "Austin" through and through. We love working at this fantastic locale!
