facility is magnificent ... sumptuous interiors
and furnishings ... both beautiful and atmospheric.
All of our guests were very impressed with the
magnificence of the rooms. The care you took to
insure that every detail was attended to, including
the gorgeous floral displays in all of the rooms,
created a wonderful ambiance .. the food was beautifully
prepared and presented. I was told repeatedly
how delicious everything tasted. Many of our guests
were from different parts of the country and the
taste sensations provided by your interpretations
of French and Louisiana cuisine were the cause
of constant marveling and superlatives. Thanks
to you and your staff and the hard work that you
put into this event, our daughter's wedding was
a truly memorable event. Every detail of the reception
was handled professionally yet lovingly. You and
your staff must truly love and enjoy what you
do, and it shows. We cannot sufficiently express
our delight and gratitude for a wonderful affair.
We both know that there is no way we would have
had such a fantastic, problem-free and memorable
reception anywhere else.
Thank you for the tremendous job you and your
staff did with my daughter's wedding reception...

day was well beyond our expectations (and we had

Thank you so much for helping me pull off such
a wonderful reception. The Elms Mansion was the
perfect setting for a traditional New Orleans
reception. You both made coordinating the details
from Texas relatively simple. I can't tell you
how many compliments we got on the service and

The Elms Mansion is the perfect place for a wedding!
We had many guests from out of state who were
charmed by the beautiful house and grounds.
Our Louisiana friends were equally charmed! The
food was wonderful and surpassed all of our expectations...
Thank you for providing a lovely setting, delicious
food, and excellent service for (our daughter's)
wedding reception. Family and friends had a wonderful
time. Since many of them had not been to New Orleans
before, you provided their first experience with
Southern hospitality. What a great first impression!
Thank you for your help in making our daughter's
wedding so wonderful. You two were wonderful in
knowing just what to do and in being patient with
this 1st-time mother of the bride with many questions!
You certainly have perfected your art and skills

have told us over and over how wonderful the food
was .. hats off to the chef!
