I wouldn't remove any leaves that aren't yellow or brown. A young plant needs all the photosynthesis it can get. I think the blooms are too heavy for this plant that hasn't had enough time to sink in strong roots. If you trim a couple to take inside, the plant may straighten up. A hoop is fine as long as you are very careful not to damage stems. Hydrangeas like moist soil and morning sun unless you have one of the ever-blooming hybrids. Keep your plant tag; how to correctly prune hydrangeas depends on the type you have. It is easy to forget by the time you think about pruning.
