Our reception at the Federal Ballroom was everything I could have ever wished for and more for my wedding. Our experience met and exceeded all of my wedding day dreams! The Ballroom itself is exceptionally elegant and beautiful. We especially loved the high ceilings, beautiful tall columns, floor-to-ceiling windows, lovely lighting, and large dance floor with a great area for the band.
Being able to have Rebecca as the wedding coordinator is what made our experience at the Federal Ballroom so fantastic. She is absolutely wonderful to work with! The decision to forgo hiring a wedding planner for a New Orleans wedding can be a little stressful and worrisome. but Becca made all of those concerns go away. She helped throughout the entire wedding process and was always willing to give her advice and expertise for our wedding planning. We visited the Federal Ballroom a few times before the wedding and enjoyed each visit with Becca. The day of the wedding, Becca took care of everything! We didn't have to worry about anything and put it all in her hands.
The service was excellent, and the food was absolutely delicious. We loved that we were able to pick so many different foods and that we had many great New Orleans classics to choose from. Our guests went on and on about how much they enjoyed everything. They especially appreciated having the hor d'oeuvres and cake passed around and how attentive the staff was.
The night went without a single hitch. I know this had to do with the planning and all of the behind the scenes work that Rebecca did. My husband and I, as well as my parents, felt very tended to throughout the whole evening, and the whole process. Our reception at the Federal Ballroom was beyond our expectations and absolutely wonderful. I am grateful for the amazing service from Becca, Capdeboscq and everyone involved, and I am incredibly happy to have chosen the Federal Ballroom. We will cherish our happy memories from our wedding reception there always.

I had my ceremony and reception at the Federal Ballroom. It was so perfect! Rebecca was so accommodating and took care of everything. It was as stress-free as a wedding can possibly be. The in house catering was delicious and the family and friends had so much fun. All I kept hearing after the wedding was how much of a good time everyone had. I have no complaints and would recommend this venue to any brides interested in getting married in New Orleans. Also, having our names on the marquee in the front of the building was pretty cool! Beautiful venue and great people to work with!

I had a destination wedding in New Orleans on August 23, 2014. My reception was held at the Federal Ballroom and it was absolutely amazing! The food was great and everyone was raving about it (the caterers that work with the Federal Ballroom were a joy to work with and they have a really good selection of food items to choose from). The venue is unique and very eloquent. I looked at several venues in New Orleans and The Federal Ballroom is the best bang for your buck. The Federal Ballroom also has something that the other venues did not offer and her name is Rebecca O'Meara. Rebecca is an angel sent from God. Seriously, this lady is amazing! You do not need to hire a wedding coordinator or wedding planner if you are having your reception and/or ceremony at the Federal Ballroom. Rebecca handles everything and she made sure that everything was perfect for my wedding reception (she even helped me with my Ceremony that was held at another venue). She also saved me over $1,300.00 on my centerpieces!!! Rebecca and her staff are awesome! If you do not consider the Federal Ballroom for your Wedding Reception, you are making a huge mistake! You can view some of my pictures from my Reception at the Federal Ballroom on Facebook and Instagram by searching the #smith823 (hashtag). I had the Reception of my dreams at the Federal Ballroom without spending an arm and a leg :-)

These guys and their catering partners Capdebosqc Catering were COMPLETELY AMAZING !!
I cannot recommend them highly enough- not only did they do things EXACTLY the way I requested and envisioned...they were super nice and courteous to my family and bridal party!

My guests had an amazing time and I know it was due largely to the professionalism of the Federal Ballroom staff!!

The Federal Ballroom is an amazing place to have a wedding reception. Rebecca, the wedding planner, is there with you through the entire process (from booking to the night of the reception). She is amazing to work with. The food was exceptional and Mr. Gene Capdebosq was a pleasure to work with. He worked with every request we had. The lighting in the room was wonderful for a night time reception. The bride added a second line band to end the reception and that was something you should always have. They danced around the ballroom and down to the French Quarter. I would recommend the Federal Ballroom for any bride or even a banquet. I can't say enough good things about this place!

I was extremely happy with the Federal Ballroom. Rebecca does a fantastic job there! She keeps the timeline moving, which is great. She is very flexible and easy to work with. She is also easy to get in touch with and wants to make everything as easy as possible for you! The space is spectacular. I have a thing for that classy vintage look - which the Federal Ballroom definitely has! The old fashioned elevator is what got me hooked! The last thing I wanted for a venue was a typical ballroom, but this was definitely not a typical ballroom. The walls are lined with beautiful windows, so you can see New Orleans and you don't feel confined or closed in. There are gorgeous columns running throughout the center. The staff there are willing to work with any setting you desire though. I was extremely happy. My only complaint, and it is minor, id that some of the centerpieces and tables were not arranged the way I had wanted/anticipated. But, I was so happy with everything else, those small details really didn't matter, it was beautiful nonetheless. I was very impressed with the venue!

The Federal ballroom was the perfect venue for us. Rebecca is so helpful and wants nothing more than to make your day special. She coordinated everything with the caterer. She coordinated the whole flow of events. The room itself is beautiful. I recommend it to anyone.
