    5 stars! Bayou Bard did a fantastic job hosting my daughters wedding.

    5 stars! We recently hired Tammy (owner) and her team for my daughters wedding on Halloween. She and her team did a fantastic job hosting my daughters wedding. She had to manage COVID restrictions as well as recover from hurricane Ida. They were able to successfully host the wedding with near perfection and precision. She was also able to work within our budget and serve as consultant on flowers, cakes, DJ, rehearsal and many many other areas. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or corporate event. The staff at bayou barn were professional, courteous, and a joy to work with.

    We plan to use this venue again in the future.

    When we decided on bayou barn we knew the venue was awesome but little did was know how awesome not only the venue but the staff would be . Our wedding was planning for 10/22/2021 … little did we know the town would be shook by hurricane ida a little over a month before our wedding date . Bayou barn was hit pretty hard and I was afraid my wedding date wouldn’t be happening! Well whatever fairy dust these ladies have they used it all to make my wedding day happen and I’m talking they went above and beyond to make our day perfect ! I would recommend Bayou Barn to anyone looking to have a fun and beautiful wedding run by amazing owner and employees! We are forever thankful for them !
