About Southern Oaks Plantation

Situated in New Orleans, Louisiana, Southern Oaks Plantation is a wedding venue with storybook flair. Antebellum charm, winding staircases, expansive lawns, and elderly trees make for a timeless setting for both ceremonies and receptions. Couples celebrating here also revel in the exceptional service provided by the estate's enthusiastic events team.
Facilities and Capacity
You and your partner can profess your commitment to each other surrounded by your nearest and dearest under the moss-covered trees. Up to 400 guests can be accommodated on the grounds. When renting the estate, couples can enjoy complete access to the mansion for an intimate event. Elegant in all lighting scenarios, the grounds and mansion are suitable for weddings during the day and evening. If your nuptials are to take place after dark, the trees can be wrapped with twinkling lights for a venue that really shines and sparkles. For receptions held inside, dance on luxurious, wooden flooring under the glitter of crystal chandeliers in their grand ballroom.
Services Offered
Owners Bobby and Sue Asaros started Southern Oaks Plantation with the desire to provide couples with an experience that keeps the attention on the love birds. In harmony with this ethos and to ensure personalized service, wait staff are assigned specifically to the couple during the reception. Couples also enjoy a dinner for just the two of them and their own selection of hors d’oeuvres and champagne. For the wedding party’s relaxation, access to a private bar and lounge can be provided. Arrive in glamour seated in a limo or feel like royalty in a horse-drawn carriage. Firework displays can also be arranged to enthrall and captivate guests.
Cuisine
During the entire reception, delightful cocktails picked from a menu of over 80 options are served by their professional staff. Selections come from both the land and sea, appealing to many palettes. Additional food displays add extra flavor to the wedding reception. A sushi station, fruit and cheese arrangement, and succulent meat carving station give guests a variety of options to ensure that no one goes hungry.

    Absolute professionals

    Very impressive. My wife and I got married here on April 27, 2019. The folks at Southern Oaks Plantation (SOP) have wedding planning and execution down to a science. From the very beginning of our contact with them, they were professional and responsible. They assigned Lauren Burgess as the primary point of contact for our wedding and she remained attentive and friendly throughout. She seemed genuinely excited to be planning our wedding and was very easy to work with. SOP handles the majority of details for the ceremony and reception so it makes things easy on the bride and groom during the planning process. On the day of, they had individual people assigned to different roles taking care of specific people and things, and had a standardized process for preparing the bridal party for the ceremony, which was executed flawlessly. There are only two things I would do differently. During the ceremony itself I would have liked more guidance on where exactly to stand as bridge and groom...we ended up standing too far apart much of it! Secondly, we had planned a second-line during the reception and weren't advised until the week before that SOP usually doesn't do the second-lines outside. We ended up doing it outside anyway but only had two saxophones and neither of the originally requested drums, resulting in a weaker than desired sound. This was mostly just a miscommunication between SOP, the band, and us. Not a big deal; just make sure you get everyone on the same page for this early on. Everything else was honestly perfect, and I do not use that word lightly. The grounds were gorgeous, the staff courteous and attentive, the plan well thought out and executed, the reception fun, the bar easy, the food absolutely fantastic, and on and on. It was especially nice that during the reception, from start to finish, the SOP staff was constantly checking on us (bride and groom) to ensure we had everything we needed from drinks to change of clothes to even a new pair of socks! They were always respectful of our time, space, and privacy but never far when we needed them. One of the capstones for us was that the owner threw in a surprise fireworks and streamers show at the end of our ceremony! We had no idea it was coming! Many guests said our wedding was a "fairytale wedding," and they raved about the setting and food in particular. As many of them are high-performing professionals, this commentary is not frivolous or given without being earned. My wife and I would highly recommend you considering SOP for your wedding. We would choose them again in a heartbeat!
