Reviews From Couples
Such a beautiful and amazing venue! Once I found this place, I knew this was the one. SO many great areas for pictures and ceremony spaces. Caitlyn was very responsive and helped us find a new date when we decided to postpone. Couldn’t be happier! Also our guests couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the venue is. – Lauren H.
We loved having our wedding at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. As we had guests coming from all over the country, we wanted a space that felt very Austin and the Center was perfect. There was so much for people to walk around and see and enjoy before the ceremony and during cocktail hour and so many options for where to have all the events of the evening. It rained most of the day, just clearing before the ceremony and that made all the blooms and plant life that much more lush. It was exquisitely beautiful and felt like a fairy tale. We also had to reschedule our wedding because of COVID and they couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful during the whole process. – Anna G.
The Wildflower Center is so, so gorgeous. They are reasonably priced, and it feels so good to be able to put part of your budget into a space that is both lovely and environmentally friendly! The event manager and staff we worked with were helpful and well-versed on how best to use the space. We had our entire event there (ceremony, cocktail, and reception), and all of our guests loved exploring the grounds. Thanks for being awesome, y’all! – Rachel C.
We loved having our wedding at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center! The gardens themselves are gorgeous, and Caitlyn (along with all the staff we worked with) was incredibly helpful and accommodating. In addition, we were able to have THREE separate plans in case of varying levels of rain! We had our ceremony and dinner in the Courtyard with dancing in the Great Hall. It couldn’t have gone better! If you want a garden wedding in Austin, there’s not a better spot! – David T.
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center could not have been a better venue — Caitlin was extremely easy to work with and quickly answered all of my questions. The venue itself was so pretty that I saved a lot of money on flowers and decorations. Not much is needed when there is naturally beautiful scenery all around you! The venue had a rain plan in place already so I didn’t have to rent a tent just in case it rained. It was all so great — the tables and chairs they provided were also perfect. – Shannon M.
