Why Destination Weddings in New Orleans are Simply the Best
October 18th, 2018 | Activities
If you’re looking for that special something you can’t find anywhere else for a destination wedding, New Orleans fits the bill. It’s unlike any city in the United States, offering Old World charm that’s accessible to everyone. Plus, the Big Easy is in a constant state of celebration, whatever the occasion.
For happy guests, gorgeous wedding photos and vibrant local flavor, there’s nothing more memorable than a wedding in New Orleans. Here’s why.
A picturesque setting
The French Quarter is a patchwork of cultures that shows French, Spanish, Victorian and southern architecture. What other historic city in the US has been so supremely conserved? Its beautiful scenery is classic but not stuffy. Not only does this make for excellent photo ops, it also allows you leeway to customize the exact feel you’re going for.
If you’re torn between a rustic wedding or something a bit more traditional, New Orleans is a little bit of everything. Whether you’re looking for a small venue or renting out a gorgeous courtyard within the Quarter, the city is easygoing, versatile, and effortlessly accommodating.
There’s a wide range of venues in New Orleans. At Andrew Jackson Hotel, we offer an intimate wedding ceremony and reception in our charming and secluded courtyard surrounded by cottages from the 1800s. Our private courtyard can accommodate up to 30 guests. Learn more about prices or request a proposal.
Your guests will be happy
