The Degas House's Interview with French Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Pierre Vimont

" …..by knowing better our history and the history between our two countries and the links and bonds that can exist on such a figure like Edgar Degas, by knowing this history it's the best way to know who we are today. It's by improving your knowledge of history, by helping people to understand that history that we are able to work together for the future. It's not just looking at the past; it's looking at the past in order to promote the future and to promote our relationship between our two countries in the future."

-His Excellency Pierre Vimont, The French Ambassador to the United States,

The Edgar Degas House, New Orleans, March 2009

    The Degas House was the first and last venue that I visited when searching for a place to have my wedding and reception. I immediately fell in love with the charm of the house, grounds, and wonderful staff. It was the only venue that provided everything that I needed to make my event successful and beautiful including lodging. I owe the success of my event to the staff especially to the super-creative wedding coordinator/event planner, Eva Tracey (whom wears many hats.) She met with me several times during the process and kept me well-informed of all things that I needed to be concerned with. I did not have to lift a finger during the whole process which allowed me to completely enjoy my wedding without stress. All I had to do was make decisions (basically say "yes or no" to questions.) The Degas House is such a package. They provide food, decor, staffing, chairs, linens, liquor, and so on etc. It was the only venue that didn't have a separate charge for every little thing. The staff took care of everything from start to finish and it was such an easy ordeal. Eva also set up a tasting where my husband and I could try all the delicious offerings that would be served at the reception. Eva was very organized and the time-line of my wedding was scripted. I was escorted to the necessary places when I had to be there and the wedding was a SUCCESS!! My friends actually said that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended. EVERYONE commented on how smoothly things went and that there was never a dirty glass, plate, or napkin on any table at any time. Ms. Sharon rocked in the kitchen and everyone also said how great the food was. Ms. Elaine took care of all the ladies upstairs for the dressing of the bride and couldn't have been any sweeter. All these lovely people made my wedding day/night so successful and memorable. I cannot say more about how great the staff was!!

    Degas House's reply:

    We LOVED helping you plan your wedding! All of our pre-wedding meetings were a blast. Your flowers were lovely and The Hot 8 Brass Band was amazing! They had everyone up and dancing. You looked so beautiful and it was one of the most fun weddings that we have had the pleasure to work on. Wishing you both a lifetime of love and magical adventures.

    Eva, Ms. Sharon and entire staff at the Degas House was extremely warm and friendly. I was an out of town bride and Eva was professional, responsive and extremely helpful in coordinating and planning my wedding. She helped providing honest and true comparisons that fit within my budget for florists, photographers and so on. During the weekend of my wedding there was a bit of rain and honestly all went fine -- our guests enjoyed the food, entertainment and the entire establishment... everyone was dancing and having a great time. Eva was also excellent with giving suggestions of what worked in other weddings as side dessert tables, sparklers and so on. It was quite romantic. We also got the Estelle suite and that was fantastic as well, the service was delightful and our bridal party enjoyed the extra treats and champagne. I am so happy we chose this location-- in fact I chose it without doing a tour of the venue (a family member did in place) however when I visited in November (as well as the phone calls leading up to November) I found the venue to be accommodating, delightful, elegant and Eva & staff to be ever so assuring! :) I highly recommend the venue.

    Degas House's reply:

    You looked so beautiful on your wedding day! Your groom was totally delightful and so funny! Your band, Boogie Falaya, was wonderful and we think everyone enjoyed dancing to their music. We loved all your special touches and how you incorporated your friends and family into your special day. Having one aunt officiate, one aunt sing along with the band (who has an amazing voice), and the way that you introduced the bridal party was very fun and memorable! Your life is a beautiful fairy tale written by the hand of God. We hope we will see you the next time that you are in New Orleans.

    Everything went perfectly with the Degas House. The attention to detail and flexibility to work with all of our various needs along the way was just amazing. The experience was all very personal, and the staff super wonderful to work with. They were so willing to help with any questions that came up all along the way. We stayed there, got ready there, and had the ceremony and reception all on site. That got rid of so much potential stress by doing everything there. I definitely recommend to anyone planning a nice and personal wedding in New Orleans!

    Degas House's reply:

    Your wedding day seemed to be perfect, as you felt it was! We loved working with both of you! Your astronomy themed wedding was delightfully memorable. We also loved that you had a first song instead of a first dance. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.
