We had a church wedding and then followed with our reception at Rosy's Jazz Hall. Darlene made me feel completely at ease with the entire process - I was able to bring in some of my own special decor items and make it feel unique to us, which was important to me. The stage is... Read More also SO IDEAL for live music - very old school, retro feeling, and we had a blast with our friends' band playing. Everyone was raving about the food, the drinks and fun bartenders, the beautiful atmosphere of the venue, and how overall unique the experience was. Our out-of-town guests, many of who were experiencing a Southern wedding for the first time, got an absolute kick out of all of it. A few other smaller things - we had a daytime wedding and I initially chose Rosy's because I loved the atrium and how you didn't feel like you were going in to a black-hole-wedding-reception-venue where you walk out, blinking your eyes. The daylight and the greenery really contributed to the ambience of our daytime celebration. Another thing - I loved that all of the food is simply taken care of. And it's SO GOOD. Not having to worry about a caterer was such a big perk for us. Lastly, the location makes it so easy for guests in cars. As someone who had a lot of family driving in from nearby, not dealing with the French Quarter was a big part of my decision to go with Rosy's initially - and there is no lack of character here! I would choose this venue over and over again for our wedding. It was perfect!

I can't even start to express my gratitude towards Steve and Darlene for creating the absolute perfect wedding for us. It honestly exceeded our expectations; not only is the venue honestly the most beautiful venue I've EVER seen, but the entire operation was a well oiled... Read More machine. There's no one I would trust to pull off such a production more than Darlene, and we feel so lucky we had the opportunity to have her with us throughout the process, right by our sides. The vendors were contacted and coordinated by Darlene the week prior, and she even reviewed contracts before as we were honing in on vendors. At the wedding, she let me know that she's "the only person who wears a watch," and did her best to keep an icy cocktail in my hand throughout the night. After the reception, she had all of the things we had to take from the venue all packed and ready to go, and most importantly, made sure it got to the right people (God knows I couldn't be trusted with that at that point). They truly made us feel special and attended to throughout everything. All of our guests were raving about the uniqueness of the hall, and the delicious food. The bartenders were efficient and awesome, I could tell they were having fun with us, and that meant a lot. They made this process an absolute breeze; all I had to do was show up and have a blast.

Amazing, beautiful venue. Darlene and Steve are great. Darlene's attention to detail and know all take so much pressure and stress off the bride. The place has a great old New Orleans feel and requires little to no decorations. Everyone had a blast at our wedding. The food and...

I cannot say enough good things about this reception hall. I worked at a wedding reception hall for years, so with my experience I was very picky and had high expectations. Rosy's has completely outdone themselves. Steve got back to me on every email, phone call within hours.... Read More Darlene was a general and had everything organized to the minute, she lined up my vendors and took care of everything for the day of. The staff was so friendly, and they were working a double that day. In that industry, doubles are so exhausting! It was the little things we appreciated, for example, during our second line all of the staff came out and waived at us, throwing streamers in the air, clapping and making sure we had fun. They genuinely looked excited for us. There was always a tray being passed around, no one went hungry. I never had to ask for a drink or a bottle of water. The food was 5 star restaurant quality, nothing was frozen and dumped into a fryer. My guests were raving on how good the food was. The best part about the food was that we actually got to eat it!! Darlene whisked us away upstairs to give us a breather and there was a table set for two. Besides the service and the food, the venue itself is just gorgeous. I wanted a vintage New Orleans feel, with the band we hired it was like we were thrown back in time to a 1940's Jazz club. It was perfect, my vision came to life. I could seriously go on and on about this company. I would definitely recommend Rosy's

Darlene and Steve were incredible. Darlene acts as an on-site wedding coordinator, and she is very helpful and responsive well before the day-of. She contacts all vendors, collects information easily, and is one of the friendliest and warmest people I got to work with during our... Read More wedding. She knows the business inside and out - and basically any band, florist, baker, etc. in NOLA - so you are set! Steve has a chef's background and the food is awesome. Get in there.

They were really flexible and take great care of you (especially getting you some food, a quick moment before you see all your guests, etc.) Very NOLA feel and affordable. Loved every minute.

I was SO happy and pleased with everything at Rosy's! Darlene and Steve were extremely responsive to any questions and they made the night move so seamlessly. I do not have one complaint..my guests had a great time, the food was phenomenal and the atmosphere was just what we... Read More wanted- a fun party with old hollywood glam. It was just wonderful. I was a little worried because we had around 80 guests and some would be standing during the ceremony, but the way the venue is arranged no one felt left out and it made the ceremony space seem so intimate.

I cannot express how much appreciation I have for Rosy's and their entire staff. My wedding was absolutely perfect in every possible way and I really owe that all to Rosy's!

They worked with us every step of the way on our non traditional wedding making sure that we got EVERYTHING WE WANTED! We...

They accommodated us in every way from providing special meals for all of our guests many dietary needs to praying away the rain so we could have our perfect outdoor ceremony. But by far the most impressive thing they did was get an injured wedding guest off of the premises via ambulance with no sirens and no one knowing but the few people who were present when she fell.
