    Andrea at stage 1 was great. She meet with us to make sure everything was what we had pictured, and even took the time the day of the wedding to send me photos as they were preparing the reception hall. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend Stage 1 to anyone preparing to have a wedding.

    Aime, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Carly was so sweet through out the entire year preparing for her reception. I am so ever grateful that you all chose Stage 1, and I will forever remember you all. Your care with her and the love and respect that you have as Mother and daughter was so enlightening. She made a beautiful Bride. With all of the venues, you chose Stage 1. I certainly do not take it for granted, I am humbled.
    Sincerely,
    Andrea

    Stage-1 is a beautiful venue that includes catering, bar, DJ, and monogramed napkins for an amazing price! I was so happy with this venue and how accommodating Andrea was through the entire process! She made the wedding flow so perfectly! Everyone of my guests had an amazing time! My husband and I were catered to the whole night and the food was to die for!!

    Ms. Andrea and Her staff were great! We had our wedding reception here in the heat of the Louisiana summer. The Ballroom was amazing, you didn't have multiple rooms to go through in order to find something. There was plenty of room to dance and hold as many people as possible (we had ~275). Everyone loved the food and especially the chocolate fountain. What more can you ask for, than a place that handles everything for you. It included: set up, take down, wait staff, linens for the tables and chairs, centerpieces, and DJ! Mrs. Andrea and her staff were so easy to work with and made the wedding process much more relaxed. I made some center pieces to go on the tables and I was able to bring those to her 4 days ahead and she set all of them up for me!! Working with Stage 1 and their team was something I'll never forget. Best start to a happily ever after :)

    Stage 1 was where my husband and I recently had our wedding reception and I don't even know how to begin to explain how perfectly fabulous it was. Stage 1 is top notch, flawless, elegant & classy. I felt so privileged and blessed to be able to have my reception there. The servers actually walk around and serve your guests! The food was far more than great, and the bar service was so quick! My husband and I felt like royalty when the owner, Andrea, waited on us hand and foot from the day we booked our event with her and during the reception! Andrea is such a doll, has such a kind & gentle heart, is so personal, and always has energy to keep her bride and groom happy! I could not imagine my wedding reception any other way and it was absolutely perfect!
    All of our guests have been contacting us and raving about the reception! They cannot stop talking about how classy Stage 1 was and how wonderful the food and service was!

    Mrs. Andrea and Cassie did an excellent job in making my wedding day perfect! I was sold from the minute I looked at the venue. Mrs. Andrea is very detailed-oriented, making sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Cassie has a great, upbeat attitude and a lovely personality. My wedding was absolutely perfect at Stage 1!

    Andrea (wedding coordinator, lifesaver, wonderful human being...) is absolutely one of the biggest draws to the venue! She handled every detail, helped me make decisions, respected my opinions completely, and ensured that my husband and I had fun at the reception! She made everything flow perfectly, didn't allow me to stress over anything, and was a wealth of knowledge on making everything work out in the best possible way. I felt completely at ease with her insight and professional experience, which allowed me to not worry in the least. I trusted it would be perfect, and my expectations were exceeded. You know someone truly cares when you receive an email the night before with pictures to give you an exciting glimpse of your personal decor! On top of all of those wonderful things, working with Andrea was like working with someone you had known your whole life.

    Second of all, the food was phenomenal. Every few days someone tells me how much they loved our reception and how impressive and yummy the food was! There was also plenty for our guests to be completely satisfied.

    Also, I thought the DJ did a great job. The music was fun, yet not crazy! She handled everything all on her own (no input from me) and I was not disappointed in the least!

    Lastly, I adored the venue for how gorgeous it is. The breathtaking chandelier in the ballroom, the covered chairs, the grand piano, granite counter buffet, entrance, patio, and the timeless wooden staircase were special details that I loved. Perhaps my favorite part though is the fact that the ballroom maintains that soft evening glow all the time. We had a 1pm reception and you never would have known! It adds even more class to the already classy venue, in my opinion!

    Clearly, I would recommend choosing Stage 1 to anyone who asks. We honestly were blessed beyond belief to find Andrea and the venue. I couldn't imagine having our reception anywhere else.

    Everything was perfect. From the very first phone call I made to inquire about the facility, to the owner texting me pictures the day after my wedding. The entire staff was very professional, yet personable! The price you pay for the service you get is well worth it! In the weeks prior to our wedding, Andrea would call me to check in and see if I needed and help with things, allow me to bring things early, and just made things simple and easy! Maybe it's just my opinion, but my wedding was the funnest wedding I've ever been to! :) It was the wedding of my dreams and by far, the best day of my life!

    They did an incredible job!! My parents really loved that they provided a wedding planner that took care of me, my new husband, and my parents!! They supplied the bubbles for the end of the night, napkins with our names and wedding date, and all the decorations, tables, chairs, centerpieces, etc were included! The food, from what I heard, was incredible! We ate some the next day and it was still great! I highly recommend the chicken salad sandwiches.
    My husband and I are still getting compliments from friends and family about how nice our wedding was and how elegant the reception turned out to be. But the biggest compliment of all was that everyone had fun and really enjoyed themselves and that was what was most important to us! We had around 225 guests and did not recieve a single complaint!

    The coordinator, Andrea, is absolutely wonderful. She is obviously a seasoned professional. She knows exactly when things need to be done and what all needs to be done. I was stress free on my wedding day, thanks to her. Also, the food was delicious, and there was plenty of it. The reception hall is also beautiful with a large chandelier in the center. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

    Ok...Stage One was wonderful. They are a family-owned business, so they are very personal and easy to work with. The food was GREAT and everything went smoothly. I loved the building and simple decorations they provided. The only difficulty was choosing the music for the DJ to play. They had a list, but a lot of the songs I had no idea what they sounded like, so it was a little difficult to choose all the music. They also opened up early on my wedding day so I could get in with family to bring the my cake and set up anything we needed to set up. The cost of the vendor depended upon everything I chose from food to beverages. But overall, the prices were reasonable because I had about 150 people.

    Very beautiful venue! I've heard several comments on how beautiful the wedding was. The coordinator, Andrea, kept everything and everyone in order. One I got to the venue before the wedding, I didn't have to worry about a thing!!! She made sure my glass stayed full and that my husband and I got a chance to eat. (Which is really hard to do at your own wedding.) When we left for the night our vehicle was packed and she sent us home with food for a week, plus a few extra goodies :) The venue itself was a little pricey, but after seeing it all come together I can say it was money well spent!
