I cannot say enough about Royal Sonesta as a wedding venue. We had a small ceremony on the terrace overlooking courtyard. It worked very well staying in a junior suite. Wyatt will help you with all your needs. We had a last minute request for musicians and the food and catering manager was able to get the Jazz Playhouse musicians for us! What a treat! Speaking of catering we had a very affordable cake and champagne-both were great. they were very good about all room service needs. Everyone was very kind to us and we felt like celebrities.Sent on 07/13/2017

Wyeth and Jessica were perfect. Organized, friendly, made suggestions, but never pushy. From the planning, food tasting, cake designing, decorating, accommodations -- I mean -- they made my wedding weekend PERFECT. It rained during the day, but that evening we had reception on courtyard and ballroom and you'd never know. They dried it up nicely. The timeline for reception was perfect and I didn't feel rushed. We were able to visit with all our of guests and still do all of the normal dances, cake cutting, toasts, plenty of pictures. It was fabulous. Myetta and Rockelle were our AMAZING attendants. Anything we needed, they were one step ahead. It was unbelievable and they kept us extremely relaxed and just so happy the entire night. I could go on and on... And our guests will rave about this wedding for a long time. So happy with the whole staff at Royal Sonesta in New Orleans. I would recommend this place to everyone for their wedding reception -- fleur de lis suite and courtyard was gorgeous.Sent on 05/31/2016
