COVID-19 Wedding Experience
My daughter was married at Compass Point on June 20, 2020. Erin and Amy went out of their way to offer a special and safe wedding by keeping the guests to 10 and spacing out the chairs in their outdoor area. Erin created a bouquet for my daughter that was out of this world. The joy that we experienced by seeing our daughter united with the love of her life was beyond amazing.Sent on 06/30/2020
I highly recommend this venue for any event. The vibe is both casual and elegant. The property is beautiful and the location embodies all that is special about New Orleans. Beyond those tangible qualities, the most important part of this venue is the amazing women who own this place. Erin and Amy went above and beyond both in the beginning of our planning stages prior to COVID-19 and after when they welcomed us to the property for a special ceremony to allow my daughter and her husband to exchange their vows in this amazing location. We are looking forward to the re-scheduled reception next summer.
An additional feature worth noting is the availability of sleeping arrangements on the property. This is ideal for out of town guests. My daughter and her husband stayed in one of the houses for their honeymoon night. They LOVED it!
Thank you Erin and Amy. There are no words to express my deepest gratitude for your hand in making Julie's wedding day so special.

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.
