The Gatehouse was amazing! It is such a beautiful venue that feels like you're outside without completely being exposed to the weather - gorgeous gazebo, water elements, fountain, bridge, covered seating... They include many services and amenities that other vendors seemed to charge separate for... The soft drinks, tea, coffee, cake, cake stand, DJ, basic table settings, imprinted napkins, cake cutter, toasting flutes, etc. were all included in most packages! We were able to customize our cakes without additional fees. We provided a list of music to the DJ - for the ceremony and reception. We were able to add on little decorative touches for minimal additional costs. Everyone raved about how good the food was and they had an extremely flexible bar tab setup to where I didn't feel like I was paying for a lot of alcohol no one was drinking.Sent on 10/21/2015
The best part that I tell others about though is the Couples 'to go' box!! They provided (and loaded into our getaway car) boxes and containers of a taste of pretty much everything that was served at the reception - labeled, with utensils, etc. We LOVED digging into that once we settled in to our hotel! Cause you know you don't eat at your own reception... AND they boxed up and labeled ALL of the leftovers and sent them home with my family! We were able to all get back together the next day and share it! And my cake topper was boxed and wrapped ready for the freezer - can't wait to dig into it in April... the cake was sooo good!
Communication was so easy too - we'd email back and forth and I would always get a a quick response to any questions or changes in plans or decisions ( you know how us brides can change our minds...). Lastly, the coordination at the event was flawless - Christie and an assistant were at my beckon call, but also making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be and that everything was keeping with a schedule - without it feeling rushed in any way.
Perfect wedding for 100 attendees!

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
