Having our wedding at Laguna Gloria was a dream come true! We wanted either a museum wedding or a garden wedding lucky for us, we got both! Our wedding was in the spring and the grounds were so lush with plenty of florals. The art, villa, gardens, and lake make Laguna Gloria truly one of a kind, and it was the perfect space for our wedding



Laguna Gloria, in all aspects, was the most incredible, beautiful, perfect venue for our wedding. We fell in love with Laguna Gloria at first sight. To me it's the most romantic setting in Austin, the Italian-style Villa, the lush grounds, the art, and Lake Austin in the background.  We never once worried about anything during the wedding planning or the day-of, and to us, that is priceless!

Laguna Gloria was the perfect canvas for our wedding. We has a particular vision and wanted something timeless and elegant; after researching 30+ venues in Austin, we knew right away when we came across this venue that this is it. Once we layered in the flower & decor, everything was just beauuuutiful. I think it'll be hard to find another venue like this. Highly recommend!

Laguna Gloria is second to none when it comes to serenity and beauty. The Temple of Love provided the perfect site for an intimate ceremony under the shade of live oaks on the water's edge. The sun setting over the lake offered a breathtaking view for our guests while they enjoyed dinner at one large banquet table sprawling the granite path on the lower terrace.

What people are saying

As Austin wedding photographers, we are photographic artists. Every artist is going to LOVE any space that is dedicated to the arts. Laguna Gloria provides an endless array of photographic opportunities. The Driscoll Villa is one of the most beautiful architectural structures you will find anywhere around Austin. Surrounded by palm tree's and peacocks, the villa will give your wedding photographs such a luxurious & romantic feel. There is so much to see and use on the Laguna Gloria property. From statues to different floral spaces, there is no end. Another location that we absolutely love that you may not know of is the access to Lake Austin. You can go right in the water from the Laguna Gloria property. With Hill country & that evening glow in the background, it provides the perfect end to any Bride & Groom portrait session. If you are a couple that absolutely loves the arts and want something truly unique that your guests will be talking about for many years, Laguna Gloria is the wedding venue for you!
