Friday night May 4, 2012, our daughter's fairy tale wedding became a reality at CGT Plantation! Thanks to Jill Mercer and her entire staff, our phones have not stopped ringing with kudos from all our guests of the best wedding ever! We now have everlasting memories of the story book wedding! A wedding venue that could not have been more perfect and neither set of parents had a worry about anything the entire night. The service was very personal and impeccable on top of the warm loving atmosphere of this quaint plantation. The food was endless and homemade, like no other served at a wedding we have attended. The Mercers made our family feel very special, almost like celebrities. Both our photographer and our floral designer said this venue was a great experience for them too, and said it was a pleasure to be back at Cedar Grove Tchoupitoulas Plantation. Without a doubt, the best well kept secret of a wedding venue in the entire area! Check it out, you will not be disappointed

There are no words to describe the sincere appreciation and gratitude I feel for Jill and her amazing team at Cedar Grove! My wedding this past weekend was straight out of a fairy tale! Jill and her team were so great to work with even though this was a destination wedding for me. The facilities are beautiful and so tastefully and elegantly decorated. My guests can't stop raving about how everything was perfectly planned, how the food was the best they've ever had, and how the bar service and drinks were top notch. Highly recommend this amazing venue!
