Let me start by saying my husband and I booked this place sight unseen. We stumbled upon it online because we were looking for something different. We didn't want a typical traditional wedding in a stuffy venue. We were looking for something more intimate in a beautiful mansion... Read More with gardens and antique decor. We decided to request a quote from this place because it had everything we wanted to offer from indoor/outdoor space to catering/alcohol on site (and much much more). We live in NJ and it was easiest to plan something from afar having most services/amenities included with the space. We received a quote just about a half hr after inquiring! Looking through the website more, talking to Bonnie, researching reviews, and reading the quote over again; we thought this place was too good to be true. It got amazing reviews (I now know why) and we decided this was our place a week later. Bonnie was so kind and informative and offered so much help. She told us not to worry about a thing, and we didn't! The very first time we saw the place in person was 2 days before the wedding. It was even more beautiful in person. The pictures don't do it justice. It was breathtaking. We didn't have to decorate at all, it's perfect! Not even flowers are needed (except the ones you're walking down the aisle with). Our photos came out gorgeous with this house as the backdrop. We hired the in house DJ and had Bonnie perform our ceremony (both optional) and everything was great. The DJ worked with us ahead of time over email to work out a playlist. Bonnie even accommodated us with our preferred brands of alcohol (for a small fee of course). When I arrived the day of Bonnie had some helpers there to greet me from the car, help me inside, get me dressed, and calm my nerves; they were my saviors! They also delegated tasks to my girls so I only had to think about walking down the aisle (which they prepped my Dad and me for, and my husband and best man separately). After a sweet little ceremony we got served cocktails and hors d' oeuvres for the next few hours. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the house was and how good the food was (all from out of town/all over world). They still can't stop telling us it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Thank you Bonnie! We'd do it all over again

Our daughter's New Year's Eve wedding was beyond our expectations. Everything went exceptionally well, and there are no words that can adequately express our appreciation for the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff. A special note of appreciation to the wedding... Read More coordinators, Cassandra and Denise, for an excellent job in making sure our daughter was "well taken care of." The quality of the food and service we received were first class. Our guests are still raving about the delicious food and how the wait staff "kept the hors d'oeuvres and drinks coming." It was the most beautiful and elegant venue that looked absolutely amazing on that day. Everything (from what we saw) went flawlessly. We cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

What a beautiful place to have a wedding! It's austere and elegant, and everyone knows it as one of the most famous landmarks in New Orleans! Having checked many places with our daughter (and future son-in-law), we decided on House of Broel to handle the ceremony & reception.... Read More Other places lacked the aesthetics we were looking for or needed to guarantee numbers in order to book. Anyway, the space itself is amazing. The cocktail space was grand in that “New Orleans” and “Southern” kind of way. And when it came to the ballroom, well it was magical! Our family and friends were made to feel at home in the grand style of a southern mansion without being “stuffy”. Rachel W. went above and beyond to make sure the space was set on the day of our event and saw to it that the evening ran smoothly. Thanks to Bonnie, Rachel and the staff at the House of Broel for wonderful wedding memories that will last a life time!
