Our Story

Hidden behind its gorgeous Antebellum façade, Southern Oaks Plantation is a unique, fresh, and surprisingly contemporary wedding venue. A quick stroll through the mansion’s immaculately decorated interior is all it takes to understand how thoroughly Southern Oaks embraces the wedding industry’s latest trends. The venue is a fusion of traditional and modern elements, combining the best of both and mixing in the distinctive culture of New Orleans. It’s an amazingly successful formula—a stylish mélange of the delicious food, exceptional service, and unmistakable style unique to the Big Easy. Southern Oaks Plantation is set on more than three acres of manicured grounds. It is a charming and opulent estate, and a picturesque setting for photography. Unlike many historic properties, the indoor spaces at Southern Oaks have been renovated specifically for weddings. The charming rooms at the front of the mansion open into a glamorous ballroom, which becomes the focal point of the reception. New Orleans is a city known for its culinary excellence, and Southern Oaks Plantation embraces this tradition wholeheartedly. Although the atmosphere is magical and the service impeccable, cuisine is the keystone of their business. Each celebration at Southern Oaks Plantation incorporates an all-inclusive, hand-passed menu of over eighty different items. The food is brilliantly presented and constantly served. It’s a tapas-style wedding with seemingly no end to the amount or variety of items catered. Yet, catering is just the beginning of the amenities offered by Southern Oaks Plantation. With numerous elements provided as part of their ceremony and reception packages, hosting an event at Southern Oaks is simple and stress-free. The exceptional staff ensures every detail is meticulously planned and perfectly executed. Southern Oaks Plantation is the only venue in Louisiana that has won the “Bride’s Choice Award” from WeddingWire in 2011, 2012, and 2013, been selected as a “Best of Weddings” Pick by The Knot in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and was entered in The Knots "Hall of Fame". We have been chosen as one of New Orleans’ top wedding venues for 2012 by Brides Magazine, and been voted the #1 “Place to Get Married” in The Times-Picayune 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards.

I have been shooting at Southern Oaks for over 15 years. This weekend with Melissa & Kyle was the first time that I have ever witnessed their Mardi Gras Parade. If you can’t get your guests to Mardi Gras, bring Mardi Gras to your guests! #NOLA #Wedding #DestinationWedding #Videographer Southern Oaks Weddings
Southern Oaks is an exceptional wedding venue! The staff went above and beyond to make our daughter’s wedding truly magical! From the grounds for the ceremony to the table decorations & the outside area by the pool, it was all beautifully done. Thank you Southern Oaks for making her wedding dreams come true!!!
