    The best wedding venue in the city.

    Want to have the best wedding experience of your life? Erin and her team executed the most fabulous wedding, I got so many compliments on not only the aesthetic of the venue but just how beautiful and thought out every detail was. The old New Orleans feel, located right off the Mississippi River, really leads to some awesome pictures and a beautiful backdrop.
    A major plus for me was the cottages on site that you and some of your wedding guest are allowed to stay in for the night or even the weekend. It makes for such a fun and intimate bonus to a already unforgettable weekend.
    I’m already trying to plan out my next event at Compass Point!
