Stage 1 was the best choice for my wedding reception! Andrea Young was the easiest, most thorough, and genuine coordinator I could have dreamt of having! Everyone told me my reception was perfect! I completely agree!! My special day was extra free of stress with Stage 1 handling everything!Sent on 10/31/2017

Everything was smooth and flowed wonderfully. The staff was professional and the food was delicious. We had an absolutely wonderful time at our wedding. Everything is inclusive so you get the best value for your money. Once your event is over, they actually send all of the food home with you. No one does it better! We made a great choice in selecting this venue for our special day.Sent on 10/15/2017
Stage 1 Catering's reply:Crystal, you will be missed....thanks for entrusting us with your special day

Andrea is AMAZING!!! She told me that myself and my mom would never have to lift a finger during the wedding and she was right! She had everything set up beautifully before I arrived! She helped corral all of my family and bridal party for pictures. Brought us a little of everything to eat. And it was delicious!! My glass was never empty and neither was my husband's. And at the end of the night, our car and my mother's car was packed with food, decorations and our gifts! I would recommend her to everyone!!Sent on 06/29/2017

Andrea was the BEST from beginning to end. I would reconvene Stage 1 to any and everyone. They made sure every detail was met and that I had nothing to worry about throughout the process. The food was amazing, I wish they catered food outside of wedding events. Again I thank Andrea for everything that did for me and my husband.Sent on 08/08/2017
Stage 1 Catering's reply:Jasmine, Thank you so much for an amazing review. You were joy to work with and your Mother was awesome as well. I want to add your Grandmother too! She was one of a kind! I am so happy that you allowed me to be a part of your special day! Keep in touch

We found out two weeks before the wedding their the Church we had planned on would not be available. Andrea stepped in and helped me through my panic and got everything scheduled for Stage 1. I will be forever grateful for everything. My friends and family are still talking about what a beautiful venue, the awesome food and drinks, and the over the top hospitality displayed by everyone connected with Stage 1. My dream wedding became a reality for this 65 year old woman!!Sent on 08/10/2017

Notified on very short notice that the Church I had selected for my venue would not be available. Andrea assured me everything would be just fine and it was! We moved the ceremony and the rehearsal dinner to Stage 1. It was absolutely wonderful. All of my guests complimented me on the venue, the food, and the service. It was my "dream" wedding!!!Sent on 08/21/2017

My husband and I could not have found a better place to have our wedding/reception! Andrea was super nice, attentive to our needs and made everything so easy and stress free. The staff there were very attentive and the room where our ceremony and reception were held was decorated perfect. The food for the reception was excellent, we could not have asked for anything better. Our guests were impressed by the quality and professionalism of the venue and staff. I would definitely recommend this venue. Stage 1 made our wedding day very personal, special and memorable.Sent on 10/26/2016

Make sure that the ambiance of the venue matches your vision....you want to be happy with your choice!

This venue was perfect for someone like me; I planned my Baton Rouge wedding from Maryland, where I live. Andrea made everything easy and stress-free. I would definitely recommend this venue for anyone - especially for those who want to eliminate the stress of finding a venue, caterer, and DJ; this venue is all-inclusive. Everything was beautiful and went exactly as planned. Andrea and her staff were very nice and a pleasure to work with. The food was delicious, and everyone had a wonderful time. A+Sent on 05/23/2016

Hi there!!!,Sent on 09/29/2015
My name is Camille Matthews!! My wedding was June 20, 2015. I had the amazing pleasure of having my wedding and reception at Stage One. It was seriously an incredible experience. The facility is insanely beautiful. And Ms. Andrea, wow-- truly exceptional. She has a heart of gold and I definitely recommend her. Every single detail discussed she executed. The FOOD IS LIIIIIFFEEE!!! It's so so yummy. If you're looking for an elegenat venue you've found the perfect place. I receive compliments allll the time about how beautiful my wedding was even today & the potato bar was a hit!!(it does cost extra!!!- but it's worth it) . I want to thank Stage One from the bottom of my heart for making my dream wedding come to life!! I told Ms. Andrea that my prayer was to NOT stress my mom out too much, she definitely made sure to keep my mom "together" lol. Many couples and families search for a place that makes them feel at ease, something worth the investment. I believe you'll be pleased here. Theres nothing i would change about my wedding experience! Thank you Mrs. Andrea and STAGE ONE.. YOU ROCK!!!!!

Mrs. Andrea made this experience for my husband and I the best we have ever havd. My parents got married there years ago, and that's why I chose that location. All of our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was and what was in the food they ate! She made everything for me really stress less and perfect. The time she took with my husband and me to make sure everything was exactly the way we wanted was amazing. Being waited on hand and foot after being so stressed out. She ever brought wine up to my room to calm me down. She was there for me and that was the most important. Every aspect of the most important day of our lives was perfect! Thank you so much Stage One; we couldn't have done it without y'all!Sent on 09/29/2015

We had our wedding at Stage 1 in December 2014. It was AWESOME to say the least. It was everything (and more) that we could have imagined our wedding day would be like. I had heard horror stories of brides who said that something will always go wrong on your wedding day. With Andrea and the Stage 1 staff.....this did not happen! Andrea was so organized and made sure that every wish and want that we had on our "list" happened smoothly and efficiently. I am a planner and like for things to be organized, so when we went in for our first meeting and found out that Andrea was the same way, it was a definite YES that we had to have our wedding at Stage 1. I highly recommend Stage 1 to any bride out there who wishes for her wedding day to be perfect and flawless!Sent on 01/24/2015

The event was our parents 50th wedding anniversary. It is now three weeks later and our parents and guest are still commenting on how wonderful everything was; from the food, the music, and the hospitality. We are especially thankful to our coordinator Andrea and her staff for the attention, efforts and devotion which was given to this most special event we could plan for our parents. Without any hesitation I along with my siblings would recommend Stage 1.Sent on 10/21/2014
Stage 1 Catering's reply:Sabrita and family, I thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your surprise 50th anniversary party. Getting to know you prior to the event made me realize that we needed to stay in touch-you are a special lady. Your parents! they are fantastic! I will never forget their faces when we open the door to the ballroom. Priceless! What a wonderful family. May all of you have many blessings,
