I have a confession to make--I LOVE outdoor weddings! But in Texas, they are so hard to pull off. Between the heat, the bugs, and the potential for torrential rain, it rarely ever goes off without a hitch. But when it does--it is gorgeous! And this outdoor museum Austin wedding is proof of how beautiful outdoor weddings in Texas can be. This couple threw the perfect traditional, elegant Austin wedding. Starting off with a gorgeous Catholic ceremony and ending with an outdoor reception on the stunning grounds of Laguna Gloria. Hyde Park Photography took the photographs the couple will cherish forever. Check out the gallery for more outdoor wedding elegance.

St. Mary's Cathedral in Austin

From Hyde Park Photography...What a beautiful St Mary’s Cathedral wedding! Jessica & John exchanged vows and rings during their ceremony in the incredibly beautiful (and historic) sanctuary surrounded by loving family and wonderful friends. The celebration continued at The Austin Museum of Art’s stunning Laguna Gloria. Beautiful decor was arranged for dining al fresco. Jessica & John included a wonderful Italian tradition. They walked to all of the tables and served guests delicious traditional Italian cookies! After dinner, everyone had a blast on the dance floor the entire night. Guests also enjoyed having their caricature drawn! The celebration was capped with a fun sparkler departure as the couple began their new life together.
