LAGUNA GLORIA WEDDING IDEAS
Austin film photographer Christine Gosch
If you’re in the early stages of wedding planning and are looking for a wedding venue in Texas with serious destination wedding vibes, look no further than Laguna Gloria. Nestled into the Austin hillside with a direct view of the Colorado River, the Italian style villa was built in 1916 as a private home for Clara Driscoll (who, upon research, I discovered funded the preservation of the Alamo- so she’s alright in my book). Laguna Gloria has since been an Art Museum & art exhibition space. Every corner of this venue was filled with raw texture, luminous light, and a festive atmosphere.
This shoot was designed to highlight the talent of local wedding vendors who have an appreciation for European wedding style. Our bride and groom, Keelyn + Connor, were the perfect couple for this shoot. Some of my favorite details were the bridal getting ready details such as the bride’s grandmother’s jewelry, a bridal hair accessory by Erin Rhyne, Keelyn’s mother’s perfume she wore on her wedding day, and some fabulous Bella Belle shoes. My heart also felt particularly drawn to the Connor’s amazing details (like his pale blue suite, italian leather boots, and boutonniere by Flint & Pearl), flawless hair and makeup by Sunkissed and Made Up (helloooooo freckles and brows!), and the perfectly stuccoed cake with whispy peach & pale blue frosting with gold foil flakes by Feathers and Frosting.
We were so blessed with the perfect weather this day, and a storm rolled in shortly after we left the venue. I’m so grateful for this experience with this team. If you want to see more from this shoot, it was featured on Bajan Wed, a wedding blog dedicated to showcasing wedding inspiration for couples looking for destination wedding ideas. So grateful for the publication! Click here to view the article:
