Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With a cheerful orange façade embellished by ornate ironwork, this striking mansion calls to mind the colorful homes of the French Quarter. Welcoming to couples of all faiths and orientations, this gracious manor feels positively made for celebrations.
  • Inside, you’ll find sumptuously appointed rooms dripping with dreamy period details, like soaring 24-foot ceilings, gilded woodwork, brocade wall coverings, and polished wood flooring. Delicate spiral staircases lead from the lower floors to the upper mezzanines, which boast wraparound balconies overlooking the festivities.
  • For an indoor affair with an outdoor flair, consider the Garden Atrium, with its massive glass-domed roof, exposed brick accent walls, and marble tile floor. An opulent, three-tiered fountain, beautifully lit at night, mingles French and Spanish vibes in a uniquely New Orleans style.
