    Every detail was perfect

    Our wedding was absolutely perfect! Erin the owner made sure that every detail was exactly what we wanted. We rented out the property for the weekend and the venue alone is gorgeous but being able to be right there for the rehearsal dinner was great we had an amazing crawfish boil that was the perfect New Orleans experience! They really make sure that everyone has a wonderful experience. Then the next day with the wedding we had a Mardi Gras themed colors and Erin really went out of her way to help make this perfect for both of us. She had someone to take care of all our needs so nobody was looking for anything as well as made sure everything was setup just the way we wanted it. From the cigar station to the unique whiskey bar and making sure that the New Orleans art work we bought for wedding favors was displayed perfectly for everyone to see. This really was the most amazing nights of our lives and Erin went above and beyond! She was essential to helping us pick out the beautiful flowers as our florist as well we had no idea what to call what we wanted and she walked us through every step. We really can’t say enough about how amazing this venue is and how special they made our night. We can’t recommend this venue enough because they really did give us that southern hospitality that you always hear about and hope to experience! The pictures from the property are amazing and we were able to go up on the levee that had a wonderful view for some additional shots. The history of this venue was also something of note. The venue is absolutely stunning! 5 out of 5!

    Spectacular!

    I don’t think words can express how amazing Compass Point Events is! We had seen a few venues but they either didn’t offer enough amenities for the price or didn’t have the right feel, but the moment I stepped into compass point events I knew that was where I had to get married. It was fairly stress-free and very affordable. I was worried because I was told that wedding planning was stressful however Compass Point Events made it a wonderful experience! The food was fabulous, the staff was amazing, the flowers they arranged for us were beautiful, and they really do put so much love and hard work into the venue. I will forever recommend Compass Point Events!

    Compass Point Events's reply:

    Hi Stef! Thanks so much for your kind words!! We really appreciate you taking the time to review us and we were so happy to be working for y’all!! I’m glad that y’all enjoyed the day! We are luck to be able to do what we love and we’re glad it is reflected in a wonderful wedding and reception!!

    Pretty Historic Buildings, Big Old Oak Trees, Gorgeous String Lights, and Impeccable Service!

    My husband and I couldn't be happier with our wedding at Compass Point. First of all, we couldn't find a better price point for a venue and we were blown away by the fact that the price included wedding coordination, custom decorations, set-up and break-down. Erin also did our flowers for us for an unbeatable price and they were gorgeous. At the venue, the first things you'll notice are the big old oak trees, and the pretty historic buildings all around you. The venue comes alive at night with white lights strung all over. Erin was able to offer us decorations of all kinds and she and her team delivered exactly what we wanted, which was a pretty, elegant, and simple vibe for our table settings and decor. The food was great and there was plenty to go around--my favorites were the soup and the muffulettas and I'm grateful for the chefs and waitstaff. Erin was there to answer our questions and help us through each step of the planning process, and she and her team were flexible throughout our multiple delays due to COVID. She even provided us with a wheelchair accessible portable restroom when our alternative plan fell through two days before the wedding. At the wedding she and her team knew how to contribute to the fun environment while making sure everything ran smoothly and that everyone was taken care of--they even delivered food and drinks to our relatives with mobility impairments. Our family members stayed in their cottages and were really happy with the accommodations. And last-but-not least, Erin was even there to help me with a dress snafu and gave me quick alterations so I could get back out on the dance floor. I wish I could relive this night. Do yourself a favor and book Compass Point for your wedding!
