Why We Like This Place

  • With its elegant, European ambiance, this is a magical place for a wedding. Just minutes from downtown Austin, the 12-acre Laguna Gloria, with its historic 1916 Driscoll Villa and gorgeous gardens, is located on a one-mile stretch of beautiful Lake Austin shoreline.
  • Romantic inspiration is everywhere. From the beautiful villa that overlooks the grounds and lake to the “Temple of Love” gazebo to the garden filled with original statues from Venice, the villa’s architecture and landscape design reflect the influence of the original owner’s honeymoon in Italy.
  • You can add a unique, artistic element to your big day. Because Laguna Gloria is part of The Contemporary Austin, guests can delight in the modern art exhibitions that are on display throughout the grounds and villa.
