    Perfect Wedding Venue

    Andrea was absolutely incredible throughout our entire wedding process. After I had my first venue canceled out from under me, I called Andrea in a panic. Immediately she made me feel calm and let me know that my wedding day was going to be just perfect. Usually, Stage One doesn't host weddings as small as mine but Andrea was flexible throughout the entire process and made our reception a dream. You will not find a better value for your money around the entire Baton Rouge area. We still get compliments on the decor and food. Thank you, Andrea, for the best day ever!
