The Degas House's Interview with French Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Pierre Vimont

“ …..by knowing better our history and the history between our two countries and the links and bonds that can exist on such a figure like Edgar Degas, by knowing this history it’s the best way to know who we are today. It’s by improving your knowledge of history, by helping people to understand that history that we are able to work together for the future. It’s not just looking at the past; it’s looking at the past in order to promote the future and to promote our relationship between our two countries in the future.”

-His Excellency Pierre Vimont, The French Ambassador to the United States,

Eva, Ms. Sharon and entire staff at the Degas House was extremely warm and friendly. I was an out of town bride and Eva was professional, responsive and extremely helpful in coordinating and planning my wedding. She helped providing honest and true comparisons that fit within my budget for florists, photographers and so on. During the weekend of my wedding there was a bit of rain and honestly all went fine -- our guests enjoyed the food, entertainment and the entire establishment... everyone was dancing and having a great time. Eva was also excellent with giving suggestions of what worked in other weddings as side dessert tables, sparklers and so on. It was quite romantic. We also got the Estelle suite and that was fantastic as well, the service was delightful and our bridal party enjoyed the extra treats and champagne. I am so happy we chose this location-- in fact I chose it without doing a tour of the venue (a family member did in place) however when I visited in November (as well as the phone calls leading up to November) I found the venue to be accommodating, delightful, elegant and Eva & staff to be ever so assuring! :) I highly recommend the venue.

You looked so beautiful on your wedding day! Your groom was totally delightful and so funny! Your band, Boogie Falaya, was wonderful and we think everyone enjoyed dancing to their music. We loved all your special touches and how you incorporated your friends and family into your special day. Having one aunt officiate, one aunt sing along with the band (who has an amazing voice), and the way that you introduced the bridal party was very fun and memorable! Your life is a beautiful fairy tale written by the hand of God. We hope we will see you the next time that you are in New Orleans.

Everything went perfectly with the Degas House. The attention to detail and flexibility to work with all of our various needs along the way was just amazing. The experience was all very personal, and the staff super wonderful to work with. They were so willing to help with any questions that came up all along the way. We stayed there, got ready there, and had the ceremony and reception all on site. That got rid of so much potential stress by doing everything there. I definitely recommend to anyone planning a nice and personal wedding in New Orleans!

Your wedding day seemed to be perfect, as you felt it was! We loved working with both of you! Your astronomy themed wedding was delightfully memorable. We also loved that you had a first song instead of a first dance. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.

Eva and the rest of the staff at the Degas House worked tirelessly to make sure that our wedding day was everything we had planned. Eva was always quick to answer my questions and concerns prior to the wedding day, which were frequent since this was a destination wedding. She always put me at ease. The venue is beautiful! During the ceremony, Eva and the staff were so sweet, engaging the guests and anticipating everyone's needs. I never had to ask for anything. The food was fabulous, the ambiance was beautiful, and the people involved in making everything come together were fantastic. After the ceremony, we arrived in our room to find that they had wrapped up leftovers for us, took care of the cake so we could celebrate one year later, and left champagne for us by the Jacuzzi tub. We can't wait to come back!

We loved helping you plan your wedding! You were a complete joy to work with! By the time that you had arrived in New Orleans, we felt like you were an old, familiar friend. We truly enjoyed your family and friends. The band that you choose, The Christina Perez Trio, was a just delightful and added a nice ambiance to the evening. Wishing you a beautiful life together made up of happy adventures and sweet memories.

Our wedding at the Degas House was everything that I ever imagined as my wedding. Eva was wonderful to work with and was incredibly sweet and understanding. The staff works with you in getting what you need for your big day. We rented a dance floor to go in the back of the courtyard for dancing which was a great decision! I would also recommend staying doing their package that involves the Estelle Suite and the Dressing of the Bride package. Because we were able to stay at the venue the night before, get ready there, and simply walk downstairs for the ceremony, it made the day incredibly easy and stress free. It was a magical day, to say the least, and the atmosphere of the Degas House was perfect for our wedding!

You were such a gorgeous bride! You were both amazing to work with. We loved the dance floor! It added another level of elegance to our lovely courtyard! We absolutely agree with you about our Dressing of the Bride Package. It makes it fun and easy for you, your Mom, and bridesmaids to have your hair and make-up done while our butler is pampering you. We wish you much joy in your married life.

It was such a pleasure to work with both of you! We loved the beautiful, rustic arch that your florist erected in front of the fountain. The little cones that held the flower petals for the guests to throw after the ceremony was such a nice touch. One of my favorite moments was your uncle reading from "The Velveteen Rabbit"; he was delightful!!

Your band was fun and lively and had everyone on their feet enjoying the music that filled our courtyard. You are a beautiful couple and everyone could certainly see how very much in love you are. Wishing you love, peace, and sunshine.

Everyone at the Degas House was amazingly caring and attentive! I could not have planned a destination wedding without the helpful suggestions and constant reassurance of Eva. On the big weekend, Miss Sharon, Eva, and the whole team took excellent care of us. Every detail was perfect, the venue was stunning and the food was delicious.

Everyone at the Degas House was amazingly caring and attentive! I could not have planned a destination wedding without the helpful suggestions and constant reassurance of Eva. On the big weekend, Miss Sharon, Eva, and the whole team took excellent care of us. Every detail was perfect, the venue was stunning and the food was delicious. I highly highly recommend the Degas House to any bride and groom looking for a warm, wonderful wedding. Read less

Thank you for such a wonderful review of your destination wedding. You were a wonderful couple and we loved working with you to make your wedding all you wanted it to be. Your hoopla was beautiful and we enjoyed the “breaking of the glass” tradition. The Sparkler Sendoff was awesome. We are glad you were pleased with the location and our services and thank you for choosing Degas House. Congratulations and we wish you the best! Eva, Sharon and the Degas House staff.

This venue is beautiful! The pictures just don't do it justice. I am from Louisiana but have been living in Florida for the past three years and all I had was pictures of the place to go off of. It was beautiful but I had doubts about the space. I saw it for the first time a week before my wedding and I was almost in tears, it was perfect! The lighting was beautiful, they allowed us to use a few decorations they had-floor lanterns ect- and thinking back, I fall in love all over again! The staff was amazing and Eva the wedding coordinator was an absolute delight to work with! She was SO sweet and accommodated my every worry! We can't wait to go back and see them again.

When my now husband and I decided to have our destination wedding in New Orleans, we wanted it to have the feel of this beautiful historic city. When we found The Degas House, it was everything we were looking for. We were married on what turned out to be a beautiful Friday evening in the courtyard at this splendid bed and breakfast on Esplanade Avenue. The setting is gorgeous and provides the perfect New Orleans ambiance. We checked out the Estelle Suite for the day and night of the wedding and it was the perfect place for me to get ready for the big day and for me and my husband to stay that night. We also received breakfast in bed the next morning. The staff at the Degas House, including Rachel, Cindy, and Ms. Sharon, put everything together and we did not have to lift a finger! The food was wonderful and everything went off without a hitch! All my guests had a wonderful time! The Degas House is the perfect place to get married in New Orleans!
