In the heart of a city where architecture and history are often signified by exposed brick and cobblestone pathways there is a hidden gem tucked away in the Jax Brewery Building. The new Jaxson on the River, is feet from Jackson Square and has 6,000 square feet of open floor space waiting to be filled with celebration, dancing and laughter. Jaxson on the River offers couples a contemporary oasis overlooking the Mississippi river. Sleek lines, neutral colors and the opportunity to bring your own style and flare into the space gives couples endless possibilities when it comes to planning their dream wedding.

“We wanted metropolitan,” says interior designer Robin Roberts. “But, we also wanted the warmth and charm of the French Quarter.”

We love the openness of the floor plan and the transition onto the terrace. The terrace, decorated with potted magnolia trees, brings Southern garden party flair to the space.
