Amazing location, food, and service!
Wow, just wow. I can not begin to describe how incredible this venue is. Cedar Grove was not my original wedding venue, but with COVID making Orleans Parish go into phase 1 I had to change my location. WITH 10 DAYS NOTICE! I called multiple places, and Laura at Cedar Grove answered all of my prayers. She allowed me to come to the venue within 25 minute of calling at 10am. Once I arrived I was sold! Laura made sure that everything I wanted was taken care of! The communication was fantastic! Within the hour of me leaving, and signing my contract Laura had already called all my venders from the previous venue. She talked to everyone directly to take a world of stress off of my shoulders. With the last minute changes, I had already chosen a cake vender that the venue didn't normally use. She credited me for part of the cake, and called them directly for me! The entire place is magical. My wedding was this past weekend, and I can't say enough about how perfect it was. I've gotten so many calls about how intimate and fun the location was. The staff was so friendly! and the FOOD! Oh my gosh the food.... My parents, in-laws, and guest could not rave enough! Everything came out hot, and delicious. My personal favorite were the hot beignets at the end of the night with coffee!Sent on 01/19/2021
It is crazy that this place turned out the be my perfect venue, even with not knowing about it until days before. I don't think any other place could have made my day as special as it was. Please considering going to check it out, you won't be disappointed!

OMG I can not say enough about this place. They were simply amazing to work with. I did not know what to expect planning wise but I didn't need to as they had everything under control. They worked great with my vendors. And the food, the food, the food. My husband has a gluten intolerance and they were able to accommodate. The guest raved about the food!!! We had an evening wedding and the grounds were gorgeously lit. I had two engaged couples that are planning to use Cedar Grove after attending our wedding. Simply the best choice I made aside from the man I married. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Higgins and your stellar entire staff from the bottom of my heart. Y'all made our night as special as we had imagined!!!!Sent on 10/24/2019

It’s been a little over a month now and we still have family/friends raving about our wedding. Laura and the whole crew made our wedding seamless! From the ceremony right into the reception the staff was outstanding! They made us all feel so special and they treated us like royalty! The food was served hot and the taste was the best ever my family and friends can’t stop talking about the food! The grounds were lit up from front to back and this place is just beautiful! We will remember this day forever and will recommend to everyone we know! Thank you Laura, your husband and the entire staff!!Sent on 04/19/2019
