Welcome to the HMP blog, a journal to feature our couples and their love stories, our lives, travels, and ATX adventures! Stay a while and say hello!
When Ashley told me she wanted to have her bridal session at Laguna Gloria, I was stoked!! Laguna Gloria is such a beautiful venue! It’s a little hidden gem out in West Austin. I honestly hadn’t been since the Contemporary took over a few years back!! I was so excited to check it all out!!
We hadn’t seen Ashley since her engagement session with her now husband (eek!) Braden back in January! There were gloomy skies outside, but that definitely didn’t break Ashley’s spirit!! And like every time we’ve seen her, she was glowing!! Bridal sessions can sometimes feel a little awkward, but I swear she’s a professional model and just forgot to mention it. She rocked it out, per usual, and we had such a blast! Ashley’s mom tagged along to help fluff her dress, which is always such a blessing!
Luckily the rain that had been drowning us all that week had subsided and we even got some sunshine!!! Thank goodness Laguna Gloria has such a beautiful indoor sun room that we got to mostly stay in! It has some major Tuscany vibes, inside and out. I wish I could live there!!!
We risked the humidity and went outside for just a little bit towards the end of our session. I’m in love with the windows outside. The arbors over the top are to die for! It was a little brutal at first, but I kid you not, we had a glorious three minutes of sunshine! And then another five minutes of the humidity breaking. Dare I say it even got a little cool! But Ashley felt one drop and we bolted inside!!! Fortunately the dress, the veil (which was her mom’s veil too!! Swoon!), and all of us were fine!!
