Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This historical Garden District mansion on St. Charles Avenue dates back to the 1800s. It exemplifies the grandeur of New Orleans Italianate architecture, including an imported hand-carved marble mantel, ornamental cornices, and gold sconces.
  • The grand, wood-accented interiors are beautifully appointed with period furnishings and elegant architectural details, as in the spectacular 48-foot grand ballroom lined with jeweled windows.
  • A gorgeously landscaped garden offers a romantic ceremony location. The white gazebo provides a lovely focal point and is especially beautiful draped with the flowers of your choice. In the evening, festoon lights strung over the stone terrace create an intimate glow.
