The perfect New Orleans intimate wedding

Where do I begin? Did you know that when you book a wedding venue, you also book a few friends who help guide you along the way? I didn't!

Beth and Karen at Napoleon House are AMAZING! We live in Philadelphia, so we planned everything from afar and put our trust in this dynamic duo.

We had only visited the venue once and knew it was the perfect vibe for our wedding. We had our ceremony in the courtyard, which was flipped to our reception during our second line parade. It rained, not terribly, but enough for the team to need to make some last minute adjustments to our floor plan, etc. And we trusted them every step of the way.

Our guests won't stop raving about the food, the hospitality or the overall ambiance of the venue. We knew all along we made the right choice with this venue and crew, but now that it's over and no one will stop talking about it, I'm convinced.

I feel like we can call these folks family now. Can't wait to visit again for all the delicious food we didn't get to eat because we were busy dancing!

Thank you!!!

Intimate atmosphere in the heart of the French Quarter

We cannot speak highly enough of our experience working with Beth and Karen at The Napoleon House, and having our reception in a building so meaningful to us and rooted in New Orleans history was very special. For starters, Beth and Karen are incredibly organized and responsive – we talked to several location sites before deciding on the Napoleon House and that’s what stuck out to us the most. They were also very upfront about cost and staff/building capabilities, so we never felt that they were pulling one over on us or having to read through fine print to get the full picture (again, something that stuck out based on conversations we had with other locations). Their vendor list is incredible – we pretty much went with every suggestion they sent our way and we couldn’t be happier with the turnout. The atmosphere of the Napoleon House is incredibly romantic and beautiful which helped in decoration costs (i.e. minimal) as there’s really not much that needed to be added. Furthermore, the team had a large amount of items we would have had to rent otherwise (chairs, linens, tables, etc.) and were willing to get creative with our ideas to use other resources they had on hand. Absolutely cannot fail to mention how good the food is – we went with buffet station style and all of our guests visiting from out of town were amazed by the quality, it was a great showcase of New Orleans cuisine and they were also creative with putting together a selection of late night snacks for our guests. Finally, the staff was super friendly and helpful for all of our guests and went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a great time. We felt so confident with the run of show on the day of the wedding because Beth and Karen took such care of us throughout the planning process and were patient, thorough, and kind with answering all of our questions about how to pull off a destination wedding. 10/10 customer service, hospitality, food, and ambiance – we highly recommend having your wedding here!

A magical night

The Napoleon House was where my husband and I fist fell in love so it made sense to bring it full circle and have our reception there. I had no idea just how amazing this idea would be. The rooms are gorgeous and require almost no additional décor, but if you do want something they allow you to pilfer their back closet of forgotten wedding décor which means I only brought some beads in to add which saved me a ton or time, money and effort...not to mention packing space since we had a destination wedding. The service was unparalleled and the food melted in your mouth (I STRONGLY suggest a carving station...or two). We were attended so well I would put my drink down to greet a guest and would have to get another because it was swept away by the time I turned around. The pours were heavy and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate any and all requests. The show stealer of the night, however, was our event coordinator Josh, who not only provided excellent service but closed the night off by joining in on our karaoke and absolutely killing it with a stunning performance of "My Way". the crowd was elated and it is still talked about as the highlight of the evening. I could not recommend the Napoleon House more.
