    Best day of our lives!

    Andrea made sure that our day was everything that we could ask for. From our meetings before the wedding to decorations and coordinating the entire night she was amazing! Thank you Andrea for all that you do! And in the end you gain a wonderful friend!

    Blair & Damien wedding

    The experience from start to finish was nothing short of amazing! When Mrs. Andrea says that she’ll take care of you, that’s just what she does! From the space to the preparation & the food I truly had a beautiful experience at Stage 1!!

    Our Venue of our Dreams!!!

    Everything about this venue is phenomenal. We had our daughter reception there and had the opportunity to meet one of the most sweetest person you could ever ask for, Mrs. Andrea. She made our entire year of planning so so stress free, she always kept us calm when I thought I was losing it. My daughter reception was everything she and her fiance dreamed of, very professional in every area of the reception, Mrs. Andrea was so compassionate and caring at all times and her entire staff, very friendly. Thank you so so much for a stress free reception, we loved everything, the decor, the food and most of all Mrs. Andrea. I'm just sorry I have no more children to marry. I would highly highly recommend Stage 1 for your weddings or any other occasions.

    Thanks Mrs. Andrea
    Mrs. J. Emery

    Absolutely Amazing!

    Andrea is the best out there! No doubt! No question! Not up for debate! She made our big day so wonderfully perfect and smooth! Even when my husband's father was late she kept her cool and everything flowed just fine! She is beyond the sweetest person and I wouldn't wanted to have been any other wedding coordinator's bride! My husband and I were beyond thrilled and pleased with our big day! If we could do it all over again, I promise it would be at Stage 1 hands down every time! The only thing we would ever change is make our wedding like 3 hours longer because we had so much fun it went by incredibly too fast! We stepped in the hall while looking for locations and immediately knew this was our wedding place! Also best value in town! Can't be Andrea at Stage 1! I promise she'll make your wedding everything you've dreamed of and more! ❤

You two were such perfectionist that it made me giggle as well... LOVED every moment. Thank you for making us your choice for your wedding/reception.

    Perfection

    My husband and I had the absolute, most amazing, beautiful, and perfect wedding day! This experience was made possible by many people, especially Ms. Andrea. She made sure our reception flowed smoothly and the exact way we had wished and hoped for! Ms. Andrea made great suggestions for the order of events such as when to take photos, when to perform dances, and reminding us to take in the moment and have fun! Her experience with special occasions is evident and a huge reassurance on such a big and special day! Ms. Andrea made sure all of our many guests were attended to and happy. However, she was especially concerned with my husband and I, she made sure we were beyond satisfied the whole evening. She even allowed us to spend an afternoon practicing our first dance in the ballroom a few days prior to the wedding! We could not have fathomed a better venue to celebrate the most important day of our relationship thus far together! Thank you Stage One and Ms. Andrea!! We loved every moment and will cherish them forever!!

    I enjoyed every moment getting to know you two as well. You are the reason why my job is truly magnificent! Being that you are out of state, know that if you come to BR- you are always welcome to come by for a cup of coffee. Better yet, come by to take a picture underneath the chandelier for your 1st anniversary dance.

    Couldn't have had better

    Ms. Andrea really outdid herself. She listened and paid attention to every detail I asked for. She allowed for the transition of the reception to go very smoothly. It was worth every penny spent. I did not have to worry about anything and we got to enjoy our special day. I highly recommend Stage One for your wedding venue!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    Andrea was absolutely incredible throughout our entire wedding process. After I had my first venue canceled out from under me, I called Andrea in a panic. Immediately she made me feel calm and let me know that my wedding day was going to be just perfect. Usually, Stage One doesn't host weddings as small as mine but Andrea was flexible throughout the entire process and made our reception a dream. You will not find a better value for your money around the entire Baton Rouge area. We still get compliments on the decor and food. Thank you, Andrea, for the best day ever!

    Andrea is the absolute best at her job.

    I cannot begin to express how happy we are with Stage 1. The food and atmosphere are astonishing. Andrea is the super star though. She makes sure everything is perfect. She worked with both my husband and me to make sure all our needs and wants were taken care of . She goes above and beyond. We loved her from the first time meeting her. I think anyone getting married in the Baton Rouge area should stop by and meet her. She will put any wedding stresses to ease with her perfect professionalism and beautiful venue. We love you Andrea,

    Trisha and Kenny

    My experience with Stage One was 5 out of 5 stars. Not only did Andrea, the wedding coordinator, make me feel like a princess, she made my husband feel like royalty as well. She went above and beyond to make sure our wedding experience was perfect. The decor, food, service, and staff were everything I could ever ask for. I highly recommend anyone to have their event at Stage One. You will not be disappointed.

    Andrea and her staff was amazing!!! I was having anxiety and she took it all away. I told her what I wanted, gave her my vision and she made it happen. The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the DJ kept everyone dancing. Andrea and her staff was so friendly and on top of everything. If I had to do it all over again I would still choose Stag 1.

    Stage 1 made my day easy and STRESS FREE!!! All I had to do was literally just show up. Andrea paid close attention to every detail, not leaving anything out. She helped me with my bridal shoot, set out favors, decorated (just how I liked, even extras), helped the photographer take pics, she was just an "all around" person.

    Everyone raved about the food and drinks. Not to mention, Andrea gave us a send off with a BIG basket FULL of goodies. She packed up everything after the wedding / reception PLUS loaded the gifts in the vehicles.

    If you're looking for a one stop shop, and not wanting to lift a finger, then Stage 1 is your place!!!

    My son is a Marine. Brock and Amy got engaged then had this wonderful idea that they should get married six weeks later. After a couple of weeks of very stressful planning, tears and many emotions I suggested Amy call Stage 1. From the moment we walked in the door Andrea put everyone at ease. She very confidently told us that although we had little time it was all very doable. Andrea gave us names to a bakery, a florist and sent Amy home with a “to do” booklet. The best part was there was very little to do! Andrea does it all! From the time you walk in with your ideas to the last time you walk out as a married couple she makes sure ALL the details,no matter how large or small is taken care of. Stage 1 was absolutely beautiful. This was a December wedding so we had Christmas trees everywhere. The decor on the tables were very elegant and classy. The staff: top notch! The food never stopped coming out and passed around with smiles. The bar and buffet were wonderful. The day after the wedding Amy received pictures that Andrea took through out the day just to give her a little sneak peek. Yes, she did that at the same time as getting pictures organized, cake cut, lighting dimmed at the right time,etc. To say we had a flawless experience is an understatement. I can not thank Andrea enough for making this a stress free, beautiful and memorable day for the bride and groom. From the words of the new Mr. and Mrs. Portier: thank you. It was more than we ever dreamed we could have. So far, the best day of my life.
    For that: I thank you Andrea

    Stage 1 is an elegant venue that has many accommodations and is simply a one stop shop. Andrea is fantastic to work with the entire planning process to the wedding day from start to finish! The food is beyond compare from the presentation, taste and the variety is unmatchable.

    Stage 1 wad the best choice for my wedding reception! Andrea Young was the easiest, most thorough, and genuine coordinator I could have dreamt of having! She always helped me remember the little things. My special day was extra free of stress with Stage 1 handling everything!
