For weeks we’ve been discussing the premier modern and contemporary spaces for weddings and receptions around New Orleans. In a city full of history and culture, one would think contemporary style would be lost, but this is not true.
This series has brought readers to the peak of Magazine Street with Il Mercato, knocking on Emeril Lagasse’s door at Emeril’s Delmonico, and traveling to a different culture down Prytania Street at La Thai – to name a few.
This week, we are heading to Mid-City and a modern space, with a bit of history at The Cannery and an overview by Marie Simoneaux for New Orleans Bride Magazine.
What was once a warehouse for the American Can Company is now a versatile and modern venue. The Cannery is not a rustic or industrial space; with a neutral color scheme, four separate rooms and an outdoor courtyard, the Cannery is known for its customizability. Though the Cannery is known to accommodate anywhere from 50 to 1,000 guests, it will never be booked for more than one event a day. The goal of its owners is to create an event to suit each couple and design the space to be eclectic enough to adjust to any taste.
