A Romantic and Glamorous Wedding at Hotel Ella in Austin, Texas

I love photographing Austin weddings because they are always so exciting and unique! Since Austin, Texas has so many excellent wedding venue options, couples here have ample opportunity to plan the wedding of their dreams. I recently had a blast photographing Haley and Wiliam’s romantic and glamorous wedding at Hotel Ella. It is a great example of why Austin weddings are just the best! This wedding at Hotel Ella had everything you could want, and it was the perfect venue for the day. Hotel Ella is a historic estate turned into a boutique hotel, so it has a really cool mix of both a classic and modern feel.

An Exciting Day Full of Beauty and Fun Moments

I loved how Haley started her big day with all her favorite girlfriends doing champagne toasts on the wrap-around veranda of the hotel. All of the ladies’ energy was high, and the bride herself was just glowing with excitement!


Then, Haley and William met up for their first look by Hotel Ella’s pool. The pool’s cabana setting gave the first look such a glamorous, high-fashion feel that totally matched Haley and William’s classy, dapper style. Plus, throughout the whole day, it was easy to see how in love and happy Haley and William were. They were smiling and laughing together non-stop, which made photographing their wedding at Hotel Ella extra fun!


Haley and William’s ceremony in Hotel Ella’s ballroom was absolutely breathtaking. Soft lighting from twinkle lights strung along the wall behind the couple as they said their vows gave the ceremony the sweetest and most romantic ambiance. After the ceremony, the ballroom transformed into a gorgeous reception setting, with lots of amazing food and martinis. Haley and William were over the moon and were ready for an epic dance party with all their guests!


There Was a Very Special Guest at This Wedding at Hotel Ella

One of the highlights of this wedding at Hotel Ella was the presence of Haley and William’s special guest of honor: their dog! Their adorable pup joined them for their first look, and it was so cute to see the couple take some time to enjoy playing with their dog on such a big day. The couple even had their dog join them inside for their wedding ceremony; he was actually part of the wedding party! One of my favorite shots of the day was capturing Haley, William and their pup walking out of the ceremony together after saying “I do!”
