There are times when a picture is worth a thousand words, but when it comes to capturing an emotion or a memory, there are also times when no words or photographs can possibly suffice. Similarly, it’s challenging to describe a celebration at Southern Oaks Plantation, because it’s difficult to do justice to the feeling and the enchantment that can only be experienced in person. Twenty-five years of fine tuning and perfecting the traditional New Orleans-style celebration has resulted in a type of event that cannot be found at any other location. The romance of an Antebellum-style mansion, beautifully decorated and meticulously landscaped. The uniqueness of an all-inclusive wedding venue, where exceptional service and elegance are paramount, and nothing is sacrificed. The magic of having your dreams come true, while the vision you’ve had for your wedding day is perfectly executed. Southern Oaks Plantation captures the allure, charm, and legendary hospitality of the South, while the unique culture of New Orleans is reflected in the delicious food, exceptional service, and unmistakable style of each of our celebrations. We are the only ceremony and reception venue in Louisiana presented with both a 2011 Best of Weddings pick from The Knot, and a 2011 Bride’s Choice Award from Wedding Wire. Located just eight miles from the French Quarter, adjacent to Lake Pontchartrain, we invite you to visit and discover the details that make the Southern Oaks difference in person. Our business hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm, and you’re welcome to visit anytime during those hours when it is convenient for you—no appointment is necessary. Southern Oaks Plantation is a family-owned business, employing an elite team of wedding professionals.
