Based in Garyville, Louisiana, San Francisco Plantation is a wedding venue. It sits on the east bank of the Mississippi River and was built in the early 1850s. The grounds are dotted with tall live oak trees and various water features, creating a memorable backdrop for wedding photos. The estate is less than 40 minutes away from New Orleans and the New Orleans International Airport, for guests who are traveling long distances.
Facilities and Capacity
The venue can hold up to 400 guests across its grounds. Ceremonies are held in front of the gazebo, allowing guests and the couple to immerse themselves in the scenic views that surround them. The celebration then moves to the 6,000-square-foot pavilion for the reception. The pavilion features a stage to aid in the entertainment, whether it’s a band or a DJ. Couples can take photos on the grounds and the galleries of the main house.
Couples gain access to the pavilion the day prior to the wedding, giving them ample opportunity to decorate it to fit their tastes and wedding theme. The venue connects interested couples with an experienced event coordinator who can help plan the celebration. Couples can opt to rent just the venue itself, and organize all other vendors on their own. Otherwise, the team at this property can support couples and provide catering and bar services through an all-inclusive package. They can supply a list of vendors they trust and recommend. Their catering service of choice is 360 Catering Company, who has an extensive menu to select from. Professional servers can attend the reception for high-quality service and added ease.
