Built in 1826 for local auctioneer Joseph Le Carpentier, the Beauregard-Keyes House encompasses a complex of 19th and 20th Century buildings and gardens. American born architect Francois Correjolles designed the house, and the raised center-hall cottage in Federal Style features both Creole and American architectural influences making the House a unique aspect of the French Quarter Landscape. Notable residents and namesakes of the House are Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard and the late author Frances Parkinson Keyes.
The House is open for tours on the hour Monday through Saturday from 10:00am until 3:00pm and is available for private events and weddings upon request.

Our wedding planner had lined up several venues for us to visit, but we called off all of our appointments as soon as we saw the BK House. It was perfect. We had our ceremony in the gardens, and our reception in the house and courtyard. The venue was very accommodating and, other than not being able to have red wine, we were able to do everything we wanted with catering and decorations. Ella, the events manager, was super helpful and responsive. This home is exactly why we decided to get married in New Orleans: the beauty, the courtyard, the history, the grandeur. What an absolutely stunning wedding venue!

In my biased opinion, the Beauregard-Keyes House is the most beautiful location to get married in the French Quarter. (While I can't claim to have seen every possible venue, I did look at many on our initial scouting trip.) The wonderful thing about the B-K House is that it offers three different atmospheres: the incredibly picturesque garden, the lovely courtyard and the beautiful house. The house also gives you an easy back-up plan for rain. We were fortunate not to need it, and we had our ceremony in the garden followed by a cocktail hour in the courtyard, with the house open for touring if guests wished. We chose to have our reception at another location as the B-K House does have restrictions on amplified music but it would be a lovely place to have a reception as well. Ott who works as the house manager is fabulous in every way and a pleasure to work with. (He is also one of the funniest people you'll ever meet.) We were so happy we chose to get married here - it couldn't have been more perfect!
