Facilities and Capacity
Begin your special day in our well-equipped, get-ready suite, where comfort is key. This historic room can be found in a 100-year-old building, overlooking the greenery of the courtyard, and even features some original, antique fixtures. With warm furnishings, mirrors, and a full bathroom, this room is the perfect place to relax and prepare before your nuptials. For your wedding ceremony and reception of up to 100 people, the courtyard will serve as an idyllic backdrop. You and your loved ones will be transported from the moment you step through the black iron gates. Say your vows under the pergola with a gentle breeze flowing through the space, and dance the night away below the glowing bistro lights as the sun sets. Your event can even spill into the street, for an authentic Nolaesque party. If you would like an indoor space in which to celebrate, the warehouse will be open soon and can be rented out in conjunction with the outdoor area.

Kerry & I stumbled upon an amazing historic building, old hay barn and and empty lot in downtown Minden. Within a few years and the help of our 3 daughters, we transformed the building into our business and get-ready area, the lot into the Courtyard and the hay barn into the indoor area. Since I love to garden, doing the landscaping was like doing my hobby at my job!
We run and manage The Courtyard ourselves so you can be sure of a committed and personal experience with us.
Let us make your memories fantastic! Come let us tour you around and show you how charming our place and all of historic downtown Minden is!
Thanks for reaching out!
