I would have my wedding there again! The staff was amazing, very helpful and arranged everything for us. I looked around the state at all different kinds of plantation venues, and none offered the wonderful lodging opportunities that Carter did, with food on site for guests at... Read More all times. Golf for the guys, swimming and laying out for us girls. It was like a destination wedding just down the street, since we are from Baton Rouge. Price-wise it also gave the competition a "run for their money"!


Excellent

Wonderful setting with the adjacent villas for out-of-town guests, several scenic photography spots, & beautiful landscaping! The food was delicious and the ability for guests to spread out indoors along with the outdoor porches was one aspect that we received many... Read More compliments on! The bar/ food a little pricey, but comprable to other venues of the same quality around New Orleans. The event planner was wonderful to work with, and very accomodating. Would certainly recommend and would do the entire thing over again!
