About The Gatehouse

The Gatehouse is an all-inclusive, banquet hall wedding venue located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Inspired by historical designs and tones, the venue’s decor and architecture create timeless elegance for any celebration. Elements such as grand French doors, an iron gazebo, and flowering courtyards will help transform your dream wedding into a reality.

Facilities and Capacity

The Gatehouse offers couples the ability to use both indoor and outdoor spaces for the duration of their event. Able to accommodate 125 guests, the main ballroom features warm wood floors and ambient chandeliers that will give your wedding a magical touch. The room’s elegant picture window looks out onto the atrium courtyard, where you can hold your ceremony or reception. This covered outdoor space showcases white vaulted ceilings, brick accent walls, and wrought-iron chandeliers. An arch can be set up at the back of the courtyard, or you can exchange vows in the gazebo which is bordered by leafy plants. After you say “I do,” you and your guests can walk across the iron bridge which is connected to the gazebo. This overlooks a cascading waterfall, resulting in a tranquil setting for photos. Before the festivities, you and your wedding party are welcome to prepare in the get-ready room, which is adjacent to the ballroom. The foyer at the entrance is embellished with chic decor and lounge chairs, creating a complementary backdrop for photos before or after the ceremony.

Services Offered

The staff at the Gatehouse is committed to supporting couples at each stage of their wedding journey. To accomplish this, the venue offers in-house catering and event coordination services. With a variety of delicious food options and hors d’oeuvres available, you can choose between buffet or family-style meals for your special occasion. On the day of your event, the catering team will also oversee the delivery and setup of your wedding cake from a local bakery. The staff can also provide DJ services, along with lighting and sound to help you create a lively reception.
