Congratulations! You’re engaged!
Now what? If you’re considering an elopement, allow us to recommend beginning married life in New Orleans.
After all…the Lanaux Mansion is the perfect place to say “I do” in the Crescent City!
Why New Orleans?
Elopements allow a couple to focus on their love and commitment to each other, and New Orleans provides the perfect backdrop for what will be a momentous day. The city comes alive every day with a romantic atmosphere of lush greenery, including stately oak and magnolia trees that line the streets, picturesque Spanish- and French-inspired architecture, and smooth, live jazz music that can be heard from nearly every corner of the city (and from our balconies!).
All of these magical aspects provide an unforgettable environment that’s perfect for your fairy-tale ending.
At the historic Lanaux Mansion, we have all you need for the most romantic union, whether you’re eloping or doing extensive planning. With our idyllic location, you’ll be wed in the heart of the city with plenty around to enjoy leading up to your wedding and after during your honeymoon!.
We even help bring dreams to life with our wedding planning services and elopement packages!
Hear Wedding Bells at the Mansion
The term “Big Easy” doesn’t just refer to the leisurely strolls couples take up and down the streets. With a city that knows how to celebrate all of life’s big moments, what can be a stressful and time-consuming process becomes a delightful experience with the help of our professional wedding planning services and ready-to-go elopement packages.
With pre-wedding consultations and day-of coordinations, our brides and grooms have no worries on their shoulders leading into their big day. All the little details are handled by a professional wedding planner, and photography, officiating, flowers, and a romantic celebratory dinner are all arranged for the happy couple.
The Lanaux Mansion offers two elopement packages to help brides and grooms relax and skip the stress of wedding planning. Both packages include at least one hour of pre-wedding consultation and at least three hours of day-of coordination with a professional wedding planner. Included in both packages is a two-night stay in one of our luxurious suites, either Sophie’s Enchanted Cottage or The Wieland Suite. If you choose Sophie’s Enchanted Cottage, you will enjoy our private, one-bedroom cottage featuring a kitchenette and your own garden courtyard. The Wieland Suite, one of our largest suites, includes vaulted ceilings, a kitchenette, and access to the main courtyard. If available, you can also choose to upgrade to one of our balcony suites!
Our elopement packages also include access to the Mansion property and common spaces on the day of the wedding for one hour, a bouquet and boutonniere, photography for one hour (or more if requested), an officiant, and dinner at one of our finer partner restaurants.
Brunch, turndown service, upgraded flower options, extended photography and wedding coordination time, and more are offered in our packages as well.
And if there is a specific service or customization you feel will take your wedding to the next level, please ask us! We’ll be happy to make your celebration magical.
The Mansion Suites can accommodate up to 16 guests, which is why it often serves as a hosting spot for more than just soon-to-be newlyweds. With six luxurious bedrooms, spacious bathrooms, private balconies, a courtyard, and four kitchenettes, your close family and friends will be nearby for festivities before and after your wedding.
Your guests will experience the relaxed atmosphere of the Crescent City from their private balconies or courtyard and rest easily before and after wedding festivities in one of our comfortable queen or king beds in our spacious bedrooms with spacious en-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes.
Newlyweds and their families and friends can continue the celebration with a reception hosted at the Lanaux Mansion. By utilizing the historic parlors on the ground floor as well as our courtyard area, we have ample space for receptions varying in size from 4 to 100 guests.
If you have any questions about our elopement packages or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
Here at the Lanaux Mansion, we appreciate every opportunity to make your dream experience into a reality.
From a private affair to a celebration with the whole family, we cannot wait to show you all that New Orleans has to offer while providing you with comfort and care during your stay! Contact us today to book: call (504) 948-6119 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
