Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Located in the heart of the French Quarter on Jackson Square, the Cabildo is a gorgeous museum that’s especially well suited for a charming vintage New Orleans celebration. Surrounded by Vieux Carré landmarks, you and your guests will be transported to another time.
  • This grand 18th-century Spanish colonial building was the site of the Louisiana Purchase agreement and home to the Louisiana State Supreme Court. It was restored in the 1990s using 600-year-old French timber framing techniques and is now filled with priceless historical treasures.
  • A stunning second-floor gallery lined with windows overlooks Jackson Square, offering an incomparable reception backdrop. The third floor gallery features a high, open-beam ceiling for a rustic yet polished ambiance.
