    Priceless 25th Annivesary at the Federal Ballroom! Rebecca is the Best!!!

    I am originally from New Orleans. My husband and I wanted to come back to celebrate in the city where we got married 25 years ago. With most of our guests coming from out of town, we wanted a venue close to downtown with an elegant ambiance. The Federal Ballroom fit the description and when we met Rebecca O'Meara, we knew it was a perfect match. Words cannot adequately express what Rebecca did for us and our family. What she did was nothing short of a labor of love. She places a premium not only in ensuring you and your guests have great memories, but also magical moments throughout the evening. She is an expert planner, ensuring EVERY detail is captured from begin to end. She is patient, understanding, and supportive throughout the entire process. Working with Rebecca and the team was really easy. The food and staff from Capdeboscq Catering were great and the cakes from Swiss Confectionary were fantastic. We had a phenomenal experience for our 25th Anniversary, one we will remember for years to come. Thank you Rebecca for all that you did in making this a wonderful experience. It is priceless.

    Wonderful Venue and Staff

    The Federal Ballroom was the perfect venue for our destination wedding. The venue coordinator Rebecca was amazing to work with before,during, and after! The venue is beautiful and catering provides PLENTY of delicious food. Besides the venue being perfect with it's gorgeous columns, vintage elevator and floor to ceiling windows working with Rebecca you don't have to worry about a thing. She makes sure that every thing goes smoothly from day of schedule,centerpieces, last minute details down to picking up everything the next day. Between Rebecca and our personal attendant Sharon it was a relief to be able to just enjoy the night celebrating with our family and friends.

    We recently held our wedding at The Federal Ballroom, and WOW, is the best way to describe the experience. From the moment we met with Rebecca to tour the venue through the moment we picked up our final items to depart, she was phenomenal! She made us feel like we were the only couple that mattered. The ceremony and reception space was absolutely beautiful, thanks to Rebecca, Jeanette, and her team taking the time to understand exactly how we wanted things. The food, catered by Capdeboscq, is still being talked about! Our guest were amazed at the taste, quantity, and quality of the food... (and we had several chefs at our wedding as guest). Larry was a pleasure to work with. Sharon took great care of us all night. The bartender “Big Al” became everyone’s friend. Our wedding and groom’s cakes were moist and flavorful (Gambino’s). was great. New Orleans PD made sure that we got an emmaculate photo in the street. It was the perfect venue for us to celebrate our new union.

    Thank you all for everything!

    Jaleesa & Jeremy

    I really love to photograph the Federal Ballroom. Beautiful natural light during the day and colorful up lighting at night. The venue is just beautiful for photography. I am always excited to use the vault for photos of the bride & groom. Rebecca and her staff work with the families and vendors to ensure everyone has a good time. Eat Drink Love.
