Nottoway, located in White Castle, Louisiana, is a wedding venue. It was designed by architect Henry Howard in the Greek Revival and Italianate styles and was completed in 1859. The grounds span 31 acres and contain overnight accommodation, a honeymoon suite with a private pool, and a hair and nail salon. This mansion can host all aspects of your wedding celebration, from the engagement party to the reception. It also welcomes elopements. The estate’s main house has undergone various restoration projects in recent years to maintain the original appearance.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples can choose from Nottoway’s various event spaces, both indoor and outdoor, for hosting their wedding. The largest space combines Randolph’s Ballroom and the Grand Pavilion, for an indoor and outdoor reception venue of over 8,000 square feet. The ballroom contains crystal chandeliers and molded columns, leading onto a courtyard shared with the pavilion. An open-air tent, the Grand Pavilion is climate controlled for comfort no matter the weather. It can be decorated extensively to suit the theme of the wedding, from floral arrangements to custom projections. The Cypress Ballroom, meanwhile, covers 2,457 square feet and is surrounded by old live oak trees. It features floor-to-ceiling windows and chandeliers in a more intimate setting. The White Ballroom can host ceremonies, as well as provide photo opportunities for wedding portraits with its columns and elaborate friezes. This smaller space is frequently used for elopements. A bridal dressing room grants the bride a private space to prepare for the day ahead.
Nottoway's experienced sales managers will assist couples as plan their celebration. Our extensive culinary packages complement the reception and satisfy every guest with most options favoring Cajun or French foods. The bar service can be enhanced to include even more options, including a martini or frozen margarita bar. Guests who opt to stay overnight at the estate can enjoy the outdoor pool and tennis courts, to relax and recharge after a lively day.

I recently got married at Nottoway Plantation, and we had the most amazing experience!! Meghan and Lauren, the catering managers, were absolutely fabulous to work with. They took note of every detail and were incredibly organized. They worked with us to find the best package that fit our needs. Even though we worked mainly with Meghan leading up to the event, Lauren handled the day of the wedding and never missed a beat!! I also cannot say enough good things about the event staff. They were so accommodating and really made for a fabulous night! The food was absolutely delicious, and we had several guests compliment it! Finally, the rooms at Nottoway are exquisite. We were very pleased with everything!!Sent on 07/23/2015

Nottoway is perfect if you are looking for a charm, Southern hospitality and a romantic and laid-back setting.Sent on 06/19/2008
Misty and Amy handled everything and didn't miss and detail. She had the timing down for the whole day and made sure that we didn't worry about a single thing! There was NO stress... I'm not kidding!!
The grounds are so beautiful. Everything is so well kept, they had fresh cut grass and sprayed for mosquitos (very important since it is on the bank of the Mississippi.) Our wedding was outside, but if you choose to have it inside or if it rains (which it almost did for us) the room inside is equally beautiful. It's all white... the daughter's of the old residents used to get married there. There's so much history in the house, it's hard not to fall in love with it!
You won't need to waste money on all those tacky tulle & fake flower decorations either... everything is so naturally beautiful, it speaks for itself. They provide stunning floral arrangements and even coordinate them to your bridal boquet.
Everyone enjoyed the grounds the day of... we all relaxed and sat on the porches and drank wine and people drove over 5 hours to come stay at the plantation! It was nice not having to hire a limo or a bus to transport everyone.
The wedding here was perfect... I wouldn't change one thing about it.

We absolutely loved it! Nottoway was amazing for all their help, efforts and coordination that was provided to us regarding our wedding for the past 8 months. They were SO helpful, and responded very quickly when we had questions regarding even the smallest of items, which we really appreciated during this time. All of our guests absolutely loved the wedding and reception scene! They were so flexible in terms of any changes we needed, or any special food accommodations which was fantastic!Sent on 06/25/2015

Crescent City Soul loves playing at Nottoway Plantation! Such a beautiful, romantic place for a wedding - it is where I was engaged!
One of my favorite places to shoot! The coordinators are top notch and the venue is FLAWLESS. Seriously, if you haven't seen the White Ballroom at Nottoway, you need to see it. Gorgeous!
