Choosing Rosy's as our ceremony & reception venue was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process! I have a lot to say about my experience so grab some popcorn.
Steve, the owner, and Darlene, the wedding coordinator, are the ...
best in the business. Darlene was always responsive, pleasant and helpful during the entire year of planning. Truly a lifesaver and always made me feel less stressed. When it got to be about a week out, she called me and told me she had broken her leg and wouldn't be able to work our wedding night - so you can imagine, your initial reaction as a bride is panic mode, right? - well, honestly the only negative part about that (besides poor Darlene having a broken leg of course) was that I didn't get to finally meet her in person! Everything still went perfectly. She still called all of my vendors the week of the wedding to make sure they were all set -- THIS IS A HUGE HELP!! I didn't realize until that week how helpful and relieving it was to have her check in with all the vendors. She still answered my questions via text & phone calls to make sure I was ready and just generally feeling good. Yes, the woman who is about to have surgery on her leg is asking me how I'm feeling.. that just shows you the kind of caring person she is - genuinely cares about her clients
Steve stepped in to run the show on the night of our wedding. We had a lot going on during the reception -a mascot appearance, both live music AND a DJ, a late night snack request, a pretty large wedding party, not to mention an extremely rowdy bunch!! Steve handled everything with ease and all of our guests are still talking about how it was the most fun wedding they've been to.
The building itself is GORGEOUS. Quintessential New Orleans vibe. You do not need decorations. Aside from the photos and guestbook and small things for the welcome table, the only decorations I brought were small candles for the tables. And it was absolutely gorgeous. The atrium is so beautiful for a ceremony and guests loved being able to look down from the balcony. We had about 175 guests and it was the perfect size. Only about 50 chairs fit in the atrium so most guests will stand on the balcony, but as long as your ceremony is 30 min or less, no one will care about standing. It's actually more fun and gives people a cool view.
The event staff was top notch. Bartenders were super friendly, professional, and accommodating. And they aren't stingy with the liquor so you will get your moneys worth out of the bar package for sure!!
The only bad part of the whole night was that it had to end.
Thank you to everyone at Rosy's for making my wedding night the best night ever and if you've read this far into my review BOOK ROSY'S NOW!
