About

Margaret Place is the marriage of futuristic amenities with historic architecture, central location with seclusion, and personal service with uniquely unrestrictive policies. The 1854 greek revival mansion was painstakingly renovated from 2015-2020 to both National Park Service standards and the personal standards of young architect Trenton Gauthier, AIA based on his diverse global study of luxury from 30A to the UAE to Hong Kong. It is a unique passion project now available for you to celebrate yours.

The venue is named for Margaret Place Park, directly adjacent and containing the second oldest American statue of a woman. It's only twelve blocks to the French Quarter and half a block off St. Charles Avenue, but feels like a floating world with privacy, plentiful parking, and late hours available. We've optimized for flexible indoor-outdoor events unifying our spacious semi-tropical courtyard with our luxurious interiors. Above, we offer the city's best bridal suite along with four other unrivaled guest rooms, sleeping a total of fourteen guests.

Our ideal couple takes full advantage of the spatial and aesthetic flexibility of the venue and emphasizes food, drink, and music for a party of 80-230. We are almost unique in not restricting your choice of vendors and creative chefs fawn over our professional kitchen. Likewise, we use a calibrated line-array and networked audio system that makes a typical wedding DJ setup look like a pocket radio. Additionally, we're one of the few venues that can affordably and comfortably host your wedding party over the whole weekend (or week!) and one of our favorite weddings even had the bachelor party the weekend before! To summarize, on their own, our unrestrictive flexibility, unmatched capabilities, or synthesis of historic and contemporary beauty alone would make us a strong contender but taken together, we're an unrivaled contender for hosting your celebration.

    Dance under the stars and moon!

    My husband and I got married at Margaret Place in 2018 and absolutely loved the lay out of the space. It is was super important to us to have an "indoor-outdoor" feel and our guests were blown away by the NOLA courtyard vibes. I got ready on site, which helped me feel included in the process but separate enough from the hubub to be able to relax and enjoy getting ready- I loved peeking out to see the progress! Dancing under the stars was so magical, and I it was great to be able to keep all the buffets and food indoors. The location of the venue was also really cool for our guests, we ended up just down the street at a local bar for our unofficial after party, and when some guests wanted to keep the night moving they were a quick ride to The French Quarter (we wanted to just get to bed, ha!). Now that the space has been overhauled, I'd recommend it even more - and don't over look the possibility of photos and aerial shots from those rad balconies.

    Unforgettable evening!

    We had the pleasure of having our wedding reception at Margaret Place in New Orleans. We loved the elegant details and charm of this beautiful estate. Trent was very accommodating with all of the decorations that we wanted to set up and the place looked amazing. We had a live band set up along the brick wall in the courtyard space - the acoustics were great - and our guests loved dancing beneath the string lighting. The kitchen was exactly what our caterer needed, and during the event the flow through the courtyard, ballroom, and dining room was perfect. As an architect, Trent has paid incredible attention to the historic integrity of this special building, while also integrating state of the art technology and building systems. Additionally, the location in the Lower Garden District meant bar hopping after the reception was really easy and fun! A few of our guests stayed at the AirBnB during the weekend, and they left with glowing reviews. Overall, it was an unforgettable evening thanks to Trent & Margaret Place!
