I cannot say enough good things about this venue and the staff of Bayou Bluegrass! From the time of our initial visit until wedding day, Shanna could not have been more attentive or accommodating. Our wedding day showed a 70% chance of rain despite our dream of an outdoor wedding, Shanna stayed in constant contact with me to ensure that I felt relaxed and prepared despite needing to implement a "Plan B". The day ended up being sunny and hot, and she couldn't have been more of a trooper when I made a game-time decision to move everything back outside. And that is just one small example of how absolutely committed Bayou Bluegrass is to making your day as special as possible. Incredible service aside, the venue is also beautiful and the food is DELICIOUS. As a word to this wise, maybe rent industrial fans if getting married in the warmer months (there isn't any AC). But definitely don't let that keep you from wanting to get married here in the summer. Can't recommend enough!Sent on 06/15/2018

An amazing venue and caterer!
I had the best experience using the Round Barn as my venue and the Bayou Bluegrass Catering as my caterer! Erin and Shanna at the Round Barn were amazing at answering any questions I had and were super flexible about when they could meet with us. The food they provided was amazing and our videographer even told us it was the best food he's ever had at a wedding. They were friendly, professional and just amazing to work with and helped make my wedding day perfect.Sent on 04/24/2019

Best venue, best value
We worked with Shanna and no words can express how amazing she was to help with LITERALLY every question that my family and I had. She is extremely good at her job! We had our ceremony and reception all right there. Definitely get some fans if you are having a summer wedding. But it’ll still be beautiful!Sent on 05/21/2019
