the Perfect Experience

I highly recommend Compass Point for your wedding. We had a flawless experience which I attribute to Erin and her experience and expertise. The venue, the food, the music, the flowers - everything was wonderful. And Erin guided us through the process and event - she is wonderful. Greatest Of All Time - our GOAT.

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!

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!
