Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • From the Doric columns and cast iron balusters of the impressive façade to the chandeliers and black marble and granite mantels inside, original details abound in this meticulously restored mansion in New Orleans's Esplanade Ridge National Historic District.
  • A striking Beaux Arts pavilion, fountains, a gazebo, and patios beside a garden filled with heritage roses provide a lovely backdrop and photo opportunities throughout the property. There are multiple ceremony and reception area options, both indoors and out.
  • Designed in the Greek Revival style, the house boasts 14-foot ceilings featuring medallions and banded cornices, heart of pine floors, and Greek key doorways. The interior is fully furnished with 19th-century American antiques that complement the period architecture.
