    A remote planning dream

    We loved our experience with House of Broel. We do not live close to Nola, and planning the wedding from afar was a breeze. The team at Broel took care of almost everything in house, and if they could not, they recommended great vendors who they have extensive relationships with. The value for everything was off the charts - venue, food, beverages, and cake all covered??? We got a Second Line band come during the reception and every guest we talk to still talks about it.
    The House itself is amazing! There is literally nothing like it. Oozing with Nola flavor, and unique even for the city.

    Fantastic Wedding Services

    I recently had my wedding at HOB and it was magical to say the least. Denise and Bonnie were attentive to all of my questions, my family members, our tons of items being shipped to the venue, and all of our different personalities that were involved in the wedding. We picked this place based on the venue atmosphere, and the amazing garden it really was and is beautiful. The venue leaves very little to nothing to do in terms of decorating. The food was pretty good and never stopped! My only complaint was the dj, DJ Rick. There were issues with the initial dj which was out of their control. However the new dj assured me that he had all the songs from my list of songs to be played and he did not stick to the list of songs to be played. It was especially upsetting since the DJ had verbally confirmed with me and my attendant three times that he would play the songs from the list and he had everything under control. The lack of dependability of the DJ might not have been anything that HOB could've controlled however perhaps the vetting process could have been better? On a positive note my attendant for the day was amazing!! Thank you Cheri for your help, your kind words, and your glowing personality. I would definitely recommend HOB to any bride and or friend wanting to have an event there. I would only add that the person should stay on top of the DJ, if that is something that is important to you. The music was very important for my husband and I and we thought we had done a good job staying on top of the situation however I couldn't have predicted the DJ to lie to me (several times). Also be assured that the team at HOB has everything under control, they are professionals and are pros at running events. Thank you all once again for your help, smiling faces, and warm wishes.

    Thank you so much for your review. Your wedding was amazing and we enjoyed being part of your special day.
