About

We are the only Event Space in North Louisiana that offers a quaint outdoor courtyard and 2 unique indoor brick warehouses along with a historic bridal area and grooms room. We can accommodate up to 150 guests and are able to set up for weddings, baby showers, family reunions or parties.

The indoor spaces are part of a 2 story building that was built in 1923 as a wholesale grocery warehouse and a hay storage area. It includes a foyer area that leads into the big assembly area with access to the grooms room, outdoor courtyard and smaller warehouse. The Bridal Suite is upstairs with a beautiful decorative iron stair case that leads down into the courtyard.

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.

Services Offered

The Courtyard Event Venue offers multiple rental options, making it easy to accommodate your personal needs. The venue also has a range of included rental items that couples are welcome to use. Tables and chairs that fit with the venue's aesthetic are available to populate the space. You will also have access to their high-quality Bluetooth speakers to enjoy the music of your choice. When you book here, you are also invited to use the property for a pre-wedding photoshoot. With so many secret, hidden gems in and around the venue, the images you take will be unforgettable.

We had a beautiful outdoor October wedding at The Courtyard in Minden. I highly recommend this venue for any event.

Beautiful outdoor venue with a New Orleans feel. The inside is beautifully restored and has so much character. The owners are amazing. They’re super easy to work with and they went out of their way to make our experience extra special. It is very affordable and is full of charm. I highly recommend this venue!

Hi There!

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!
