Even though I had no idea how to plan a wedding, I had the most beautiful wedding ever. Christi did the most amazing job with everything. She was so helpful and full of positivity and ideas. All of my guests are still telling me how beautiful everything was and how wonderful they thought my wedding was. They should be telling Christi because without her none of that would've been possible. The Gatehouse is definitely a venue that I will recommend again and again. Everyone that works there really cares about making your event special and they really hit their mark every time. Having our wedding here really was probably the best decision I made during the whole planning process. At the Gategouse almost everything is included in their packages and it really just helps everything else come together and fall into place. If you are looking for a venue around Baton Rouge definitely put the Gategouse on your list, you wont be disappointed.Sent on 06/22/2019

The Gatehouse is the perfect venue to have your wedding!
This is a long overdue review, but as we found out back in March we were having a baby, this got pushed back but finally wanted to post. Christi and her staff at The Gatehouse were BEYOND spectacular! From our first meetings with her, she was determined to help us in the planning stages to have the best wedding and reception possible. She always made sure to double check on certain things, like when we weren’t interested in saving our wedding cake for a first anniversary, she asked more than once “are you sure” just to make sure it was what we wanted and didn’t miss out on something that could’ve been important. And speaking on the cake, the cake we fell in love with was a past design on shown on the old venue website that she had for the time being retired, but when we said that was one we liked the most, well, that's the cake we got! There were certain decor things that we changed here and there from initial meetings that didn’t come close to tripping her up, and on the day her placement of our decor was nothing short of perfect. Day of the wedding, Christi and her staff were on point every step of the way. Christi numerous times checked on us to make sure there was nothing we needed. She even caught my wife and I when we went to get food the first time to ask if we wanted her and her staff to make our plates for us. We were fine with making them ourselves, but were both blown away at that level of caring. Let me just say that if you are looking for a venue, go with the Gatehouse. It is a gorgeous venue (as they do some degree of seasonal decorations themselves already), the food and music done in-house can’t be beat, and the simple fact that you have a venue, music, caterer and wedding planner all in one, run by a top-notch lady, makes this a perfect place to hold a wedding.Sent on 08/30/2019
