She once believed in fairy tales, pixie dust, and Prince Charming, while he carried his plastic sword pretending to be a dashing knight sleighing a fire-breathing dragon. Childhood fantasies needn’t end there. Louisiana Castle has a secret love story of its own, and since 1999, we’ve been adding love stories to our list.

From Juliet’s balcony, you, the beautiful Bride, have a spectacular view of the Ceremony site and picturesque scenery as your guests arrive, and of course, your Prince Charming who awaits you. Your audience is captivated as you descend the 48 steps from afar. And the Groom is always left breathless. (And we mean… ALWAYS…)

Your wedding will possibly be the most mesmerizing, magical moment in your lifetime. Spanning 24+ years of weddings at the Castle, we can cater to whatever your needs are. We are almost all-inclusive, and what we don’t handle, we have professional vendors we recommend and trust with experience who are familiar with our castle. Should you prefer a different vendor, we can accommodate this as well.

WEEKDAY WEDDING PACKAGES: Monday – Thursday (You select the time from 1:00 pm– 9:00 pm)

We host any size wedding or elopement during the week. You can have a complete micro wedding with up to 35- 40 guests Monday – Thursday for under $5,000. (The number of guests included in that price depends on the year chosen.) Considering more guests? That’s fine. We can accommodate up to 350 guests any day, or evening. Additional guests are priced per person.

Perhaps you seek a smaller wedding, but still with a ceremony and reception. We also have a package for that! Our Limited Ceremony & Reception includes up to 20 guests with a sit-down dinner for under $3500. Additional guests are priced per person.


We have 2 Elopement packages; both include an overnight stay in the Castle and are priced for the Couple only. Additional guests are extra. We allow up to 25 guests at the Ceremony only for an additional charge per guest. There is no reception, just the Ceremony and then the Bride and Groom are left in the Castle to make their own “party of 2.”

The most common Elopement package selected is our Princess Elopement. This includes a 1-hour reception with light Hors d’oeuvres, soda, and a small wedding cake. This is priced under $2100, but for an additional fee per guest, you may have up to 30 guests. The DJ is included in both packages, as well as our standard elegant white and silver décor, and our coordinator who will ensure things run smoothly.

WEEKEND WEDDINGS: Friday and Sunday, (Your choice of time between 1:00 pm and 9:00 pm), and Saturday at 1:00 pm

For our Friday and Sunday Weddings, there is a minimium 50 Guests. You select the time on Friday and Sunday between 1:00pm and 9:00 pm, and you may include an overnight stay at the Castle for the additional fee.

Our Saturday daytime wedding is a little different as it begins at 1:00 pm and it is the one wedding there is no guarantee of the Castle being available for an overnight stay. Saturday at 1pm is also for a minimum of 50 Guests. Friday, Saturday (day) and Sunday Wedding Packages begin at $6,400 in 2023 and $6,800 in 2024. You may include up to 350 Guests for an additional price per guest. The ONLY criteria that changes in these packages are the additional price per guest each year, and for the Saturday daytime wedding, the Castle is (usually) not available for an overnight stay. You may still have 350 guests on Saturday day, however. This is why the wedding commences at 1:00. This allows us time to prepare for the 7:00 pm Saturday wedding.


For our most requested and booked Wedding, Saturday evening, our minimum is 75 Guests, much less than our 125 Guest count in our BC days. (Before Covid) This Wedding Package starts at $8,300 for 2023 and $8,700 for 2024. Additional guests are priced accordingly. We have tried our best to incorporate all wedding package ideas, as the pandemic changed how and where everyone could get married for some time. We have found there are still a number of weddings where people prefer a smaller number of guests than in prior years. Our packages reflect this.

We have recently seen more larger weddings being requested (and w can accommodate up to 350 guests), but for now, are still also doing Micro weddings for our clients. We are trying to be inclusive of everyone. Should the shift in weddings occur and larger weddings become the norm again, we reserve the right to change our prices and minimum guest numbers. We will always honor all contracts we have, however. So do not be alarmed if you secure your wedding with a smaller minimum and see on the website the amount of guests or the prices have increased. You will be secure with a contract in place.

While we can’t deny there are many places in the United States that are beautiful venues to consider, we have no doubt our Castle is special. Being able to stay overnight in a Castle, is truly unique and extra special. Louisiana Castle began with a love story, and every day we have a wedding booked, it ends with a Love Story!

Make it... Your Love Story.

Your Wedding Castle.

    Great!!!! But read below for tips

    Everything was beautiful. I highly recommend using the vendors that they recommended, because it made it so much easier knowing our vendors already knew what to do. The only stressful part was that they originally only gave us about an hour before to get things set up, but they did end up giving us another extra hour before. It was a little chaotic during that two hour window before the ceremony regardless. Also, the castle will rehearse with your bridesmaids a few minutes before the ceremony but not with the bride or grandparents/parents. So make sure to have a good rehearsal at a separate place and make sure everyone knows their order. They also let you rent a 4 bedroom cottage literally 3 minutes from the castle. Highly recommend getting this to get ready in during the day. All in all everything went very smooth, and we had such a great time. Ms Mary, the coordinator, was awesome helping us coordinate the timing, and making sure we got everything done.

Creative Content and Marketing Rep

J. Lynn is not only our new Creative Content and Marketing Representative, she is a former "Castle Bride!" As a relatively new Bride, (Sept. 2019) she has insight to the Castle another advertiser would not have as to how weddings are coordinated and run. Her personal experience with the Castle also assists me as an Owner, and Mary as the Manager, in how things run smoothly, or where we can make improvements from the Bride's perspective.

When J. Lynn designed our new website, she asked me to trust her. I gave her full reign with how she wanted to portray Louisiana Castle. (Anyone who knows me, knows how difficult that can be!) Amazingly, I have had many people say when they view the new site, it's as if they were already there. She has walked you through the experience by way of her intimate observation as a former Castle Bride. I've no doubt this is because she was there. It adds a little "extra." She and her husband stayed overnight in the Castle as well as rented the Castle Cottage for her children and special guests. They drove her children to the airport the next day.

We are happy to have her on Team Castle and can't wait for more of her ideas like our "Castle Couple" of the year!
