If you are looking for an authentic New Orleans experience, then look no further than Clandestine. There are lots of event/wedding planners in New Orleans, and many of them will provide your typical, touristy French Quarter type of experience, with not a lot of thought or real... Read More local flavor. Not Clandestine. I had previously lived in New Orleans and knew what we wanted in terms of music, food, venue and other details. Kelley, Kim and their team delivered on every level. They have great relationships with the best venues, the best bands, the best caterers and restaurants and the best vendors. The list goes on and on. They are just dialed in to the local scene, and if you are looking for a true New Orleans experience for you wedding or other special event, Clandestine NOLA will definitely make it happen. We had a large wedding at Race & Religious, which is an amazing venue but requires you to bring in everything, so there was a lot to coordinate. Kelley, Kim and their team did it all, and thought of everything. Our wedding was seamless and perfect because of all of Clandestine’s hard work and hustle (not always in abundance in the Big Easy). Clandestine was worth every penny of their fee. These women are true professionals, and we could not recommend them more highly.

Kim and Kelley at Clandestine were awesome! My husband and I eloped in New Orleans and they planned the whole thing for us. We didn't have to do anything! Even though we eloped we wanted something nice to remember and they provided that and more. They found the perfect bed... Read More and breakfast for us to stay at and we had our wedding cermony there as well. It was charming old world New Orleans all the way around. They found everything from the Cantor to marry, to the hair and make up person, to the music, the flowers and our dinner that was catered in for us. They even provided a buttler to serve us our dinner! It was lovely I would highly recommend them!

My day job involves a lot of event planning so needless to say, I knew I needed to find the perfect team to help plan our wedding. I can say w/ total confidence that I found that perfection in Clandestine! They considered every detail (including many I had never considered!),... Read More worked within a tight budget, were patient with me as I changed my mind / added new things to the mix, and were just complete professionals every step of the way. The owner of the venue told me they were hands down the best wedding planners he had ever worked with, and his space is booked solid for weddings so he has some experience. I had zero worries the day of my wedding because I knew everything was in their immensely capable hands. In a nutshell, they were an absolute dream to work with -- which contributed to our day being an amazingly dreamy event for us and for all our guests!
