And is it all inclusive (includes tables, chairs, food, drink, and more), semi-inclusive, or DIY (in this context meaning you have to get vendors for every single thing-tables, food, bar, etc -what I call build a wedding)?

    FFW- the Ezell house, but I got married in Mobile not NOLA unfortunately, I wanted my grandmother to be there and she lives in Mobile.

    The inside is where the food was and the outside courtyard is where the tables were and the dance floor. I believe the courtyard holds 250 people

    It's a bed and breakfast (outdoor ceremony, barn reception) that's semi-inclusive based on what you listed. We have to use their onsite restaurant and since we've got a small wedding, they provided us with tables/chairs/linens. We have to bring in a baker if we wanted a wedding cake, decor, florists, dj, photo/video, and mua/hair. We have a DOC provided by the venue that would cover more responsibilities than most venue provided DOC.

    Honestly, if we could have found a similar venue that was all inclusive OR a venue that would let us bring an outside caterer, we would choose that route. We fell in love with the venue but are paying a lot more than the norm since their restaurant is not cheap.

    Historic hotel ballroom. Pretty inclusive - cocktail hour buffet and passed, 4 plated courses, 5 hours open bar, cake, dessert buffet. We also paid extra for uplighting and pin-spots, valet parking for our guests, and the rental of tablecloths, through the venue.

    Mansion for the ceremony ad ballroom for the reception. The ballroom includes the food, but we have to hire our own Dj and get our own decorations. They do include all linens though

    We rented a historic site/park. Nothing included, except some metal folding chairs and cafeteria tables. There was a lot of planning involved, but I guess I got to decide exactly what I wanted! And the site itself was only $750.

    ETA: It's a historic mill. That's why there is mill equipment hanging out upstairs.
