We had my dream wedding at Laguna Gloria last weekend- it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I am so happy with how it turned out, I got so many compliments on this venue and it was perfect for our 75 person wedding outdoors. We had an intimate ceremony out at the Temple of Love, which I think is so unique compared to all of the church weddings we have been to recently. We did the long table along the path by the lake and strung lights and candles, and the venue was the perfect backdrop! I would say the beautiful gardens and venue made it so we didn't have to have as much decor and flowers as other places. I very much lucked out to have beautiful weather- the rain plan here isn't the greatest, we would have moved inside and rented a small tent, outdoors was my dream so I am glad it worked out! This isn't the venue for you if you want a package deal as you have to bring everything in yourself, but I enjoyed doing all the planning for it and making my dream come true. They aren't as difficult as some reviews say, you just have to know what you are getting into and know the vendors to use and they will all make it work without a problem! The ladies were also so nice to work with and they tried hard to make sure I got what I wanted within their limits! I recommend Laguna for a beautiful outdoor wedding!

I got married at Laguna Gloria on Sept 30 2011 and it was absolutely beautiful. No other venue in Austin can compare to the unique building and the gorgeous view of Lake Austin from the back porch. The lighting was beautiful in the late evening. All my guests said that it was one of the most unique (the rocky steps down to the amphitheater served as our aisle) and beautiful weddings they had been to. The texas sunset was the icing on the cake during the reception. Erin the manager was very nice and enjoyed helping out at all steps along the process. She always answered my emails promptly and thoughtfully. I highly recommend Laguna Gloria for any special occasion!!
