    Magical, A Dream Come True, Fairy-tale Wedding!!!

    Magical, A Dream Come True, Fairy-tale Wedding!!! The Degas House, A Historic House Museum, was the perfect venue for my daughter and her husband's destination wedding. New Orleans was the perfect city for us. David, Kalin, Kathy were a complete joy to work with. The home and furnishings were exquisite. The Estelle Room was so beautiful and made their wedding day and evening very special. There was plenty of room for the bridesmaids to dress. The groom and his groomsmen stayed in a beautiful 18th century furnished parlor. The courtyard was so beautiful. I worked closely with Kalin, she helped with every small detail and made sure we had everything we needed for a perfect wedding. And the Food!! Many of our guest said the food was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Cajun/Louisiana dishes and the Pork Roast was the best I've every eaten. Ms Sharon and her staff even made fried chicken and fries for the kids before the wedding. Our every need was taken care of. And then, there was Ms Elaine, the personal attendant, she made sure we had plenty of champagne and finger foods before the wedding. Everything was Perfect!!! Thank you!!!

    Beautiful venue

    Degas house was super flexible with our postponed wedding. The versatility of beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces is amazing. Being able to stay on site if desired can also be really helpful. Many of our guests loved the history of the Degas house as well as the museum. The food is also to die for!

    Degas House's reply:

    Clare

    Thank you for the kind words. Sharon and I loved working with you to make you day very special.

    Thank you and we will see you on your first anniversary - it's our way of saying thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day.

    Kindest regards

    WITH LOVE FROM THE DEGAS HOUSE AND STAFF

    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.
