We have had a good amount of work at Laguna Gloria throughout the years and have decided to highlight it on our blog so readers can get some more insight into what we do. Laguna Gloria is a lovely waterside venue, art school and museum that has been an Austin event mainstay for years and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Driscoll Villa is the centerpiece of the venue but the ample gardens and amphitheater are where any wedding ceremonies, receptions, or larger gatherings will take place.
On our side of things, there are many parking places located but a short run away on the museum grounds as well as street parking and a grass lot below the venue. The lots on the grounds themselves can get a bit tight but we are able to keep cars within the property for the majority of our events. Most of our events at Laguna Gloria are weddings – since it’s a versatile venue we might work with around 50 guests one weekend and then 200+ the next.
In addition to valet work, we’ve also managed shuttles, driven guests in golf carts, and picked up the bride and groom in limos at Laguna Gloria. Laguna Gloria is one of Austin’s most popular wedding venues, and it’s one we have years of experience and enjoyment working at. If you’re planning a wedding at Laguna Gloria or any other event we hope you will contact us so we may help your event run smoothly.
We are pleased to announce a new special from Uptown Valet – the Free Honeymoon Getaway. If you use any two of Uptown Valet’s services for your wedding we’ll give you a free sedan or SUV ride to the airport the next morning.
Simply use Uptown Valet for any two of: valet, shuttle services, or limo rental, and the free ride to Austin Bergstrom International Airport is yours – no special code or coupon required. This offer is transferable, so if the bride and groom are staying in town but have had a set of parents visit that they want to send home then it can be used on them. Or if you aren’t leaving on a honeymoon for a couple months and would like to redeem it then, let us know – it’s good anytime.
This is our way of saying ‘thanks’ to our clients who have trusted us with so much on their wedding day and allows us to ensure that they get to leave town in comfort and style.
If you want to use Uptown Valet’s valet services, shuttle management or limo rental for your wedding day, or if you have any questions, please contact us. Also, check out this post to see how Uptown Valet manages multiple transportation services at a wedding. We hope to hear from you and hope to be giving you a free ride to the airport soon.
We’re excited that after four years Formula One racing will return to the United States. The Circuit of the Americas race will occur on November 16-18 and it’s something we’ve been getting ready for for a while now and something which we will continue working towards until all the races are over.
Construction is continuing and tickets go on sale this Sunday, with prices starting at $159 for a three-day pass. It will bring millions of dollars to Austin and has helped create a bunch of interest in the city.
We’ve already had some of our chauffeur services booked for that weekend and all luxury transportation companies, ourselves included, expect to be slammed that weekend. If you’re looking to arrive at the Circuit of Americas race in style and comfort, let us know. We have limos and luxury vehicles available and we will be using them all on race date.
We also have our experienced valets available for work that weekend. They’re the best in the business and are used to running large-scale private events. If it’s something we’ve never seen before then we’ll put our years of experience into figuring out the best transportation services for your event.
We’re extremely excited for that weekend even though we know it will be one of our busiest. If you need any transportation services, we hope you’ll choose Uptown Valet.
On May 19th,2012 Uptown Valet & Transportation had the distinct honor of providing wedding transportation, valet parking, the “getaway” car, and then airport transportation for the bride and groom the next day!
We first picked up the wedding party from private residences and took them to the beautiful Riverbend Church in Westlake. After the ceremony all 230 guests (yes, 230!) drove to the reception (at a private home in Round Rock) where they were greeted by our friendly valet parking team. The private home was tented by Marquee Tents and Events and transformed into a beautiful reception area.
As the reception concluded guests were provided with sparklers to send off the beautiful bride and groom in our ’61 Cadillac. It was such a fantastic night!
The next day we whisked the bride and groom away from the beautiful Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin and took them to the airport in our Cadillac Sedan, where they got on a plane to fly off for their honeymoon!
If you would like similar services or are interested in what Uptown Valet and Transportation can do for you, please contact us today! We’d love the opportunity to be a part of your “big day!”
Thank you to all of our staff, vendors, and especially the families that made this wedding such a spectacular event!
