The Inside Scoop


FROM THE KNOT EDITORS

The First Look

The Fleur de Lis Event Center sits along the Northshore of Louisiana’s Lake Pontchartrain and is easily accessible from all of the Northshore cities, as well as Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The Fleur de Lis Event Center in Mandeville, Louisiana has won many awards for its architecture inspired by the New Orleans French Quarter. This venue has been showcased on TLC's "Four Weddings." Offering exceptional decor and a traditional Louisiana menu, the Fleur de Lis Event Center hosts weddings for any number of guests. The venue has four distinctive event spaces housed within two ballrooms.

Pontchartrain Ballroom. A breathtaking staircase awaits guests as they pass through the foyer into the Pontchartrain Ballroom. French Quarter-styled black columns support the ballroom's large balcony. Besides the brick columns and gas lanterns, the true star of the Pontchartrain Ballroom is its famous starry sky ceiling. In addition, couples appreciate the New Orleans-themed courtyard with its sparkling fountain that flows in a serene pond. This room is quite versatile and hosts guests from 100 to 500 or more.

Jazz Ballroom. Decorated in a French Jazz theme, the Jazz Ballroom is a courtyard that features two indoor water fountains with fiber optic underwater lighting and a curved corner bar with a brick top. This ballroom holds 50 to 300 people. Guests can also be seated downstairs where there is seating for 150. For larger weddings, guests can also be seated upstairs along the three-sided balcony overlooking the dance floor.

Bengal Lounge. Couples can choose to use the French coffee house flair of the Bengal Lounge to host cocktails. This semiprivate space overlooks the Jazz Ballroom, sharing the star lit ceiling and it accommodates 20 to 75 guests.

Juneau Room. Intimate gatherings of up to 50 guests appreciate the Juneau Room’s quaint and cozy space. This room is ideal for cocktails, bridal showers and even bachelorette parties.

What You Should Know

The Fleur de Lis Event Center's staff has a combined 30 years of experience in the wedding and event industry. The owner is Disney trained and has been named as an Ambassador for The Knot. The Fleur De Lis Event Center offers multiple in-house services such as a photographer, a cake baker, a videographer and even a wedding dress designer. Couples also receive a list of the venue's handpicked wedding professionals that span a myriad of service areas. Each couple is assigned a dedicated wedding planner to help in navigating the entire wedding process.

All catering is provided on-site and consists of traditional Louisiana favorites and a few tried-and-true choices from around the world.

The buffet tables are also opened and staffed throughout the event, with a separate station for soups such as corn and crab bisque or turtle soup. This helps alleviate long lines at the buffet table and guests can choose when to eat. The buffet choices include shrimp roban pasta, florentine ravioli and Cajun jambalaya. Additional specialty stations can include herb-encrusted pork loin or prime rib carving stations. Other stations serve crawfish and grits or island gumbo in martini glasses.
