7816 Hayne Boulevard, New Orleans, LA
Entrench yourself in the magic of New Orleans, LA, at the Southern Oaks wedding venue. The location exudes old-world glamour and class, with its manicured lawns, ancient oak trees, and classically Southern architecture. Couples will be transported back in time at this uniquely charming venue. Initially built in 1965 as a private residence, Bobby and Sue Asaro bought the dilapidated property and transformed it into the magnificent wedding destination it is today. With space for up to 400 guests, couples will have access to the entire Southern Oaks estate on their wedding day. Their grand entrance is a favorite for ceremonies. Situated outside on the grass, guests can watch the soon-to-be-weds recite their vows on the front porch, framed by elegant white pillars and the estate's delightful, coral facade. For a more intimate affair, couples can gather their loved ones under the property's picturesque oak trees, and say "I do" amidst the hanging leaves. Soft lighting from the glimmering candles and crystal chandeliers mesh with the neutral linens and Chiavari chairs in the ballroom for a sophisticated reception. The large wall of windows makes the space feel open and breathable, both day and night. The award-winning Southern Oaks venue credits their success to the intense focus they have on great food and unmatched customer service. Their all-inclusive package has been designed to ensure that each couple's needs are met, and their professional event coordination will make planning the wedding a breeze. An open bar serving a wide variety of drinks, and the gourmet catering staff's menu of over 80 items, will keep your guests well-nourished and happy. A personalized music setlist from their DJ can bring the whole evening together. For something extra special, the venue's list of enhancements is sure to wow your guests. Couples can incorporate a Horse-Drawn Carriage, Fireworks, a Mardi Gras-Style Parade, or even a Cafe Du Monde beignet truck into their wedding, with plenty more on offer.
