Hidden behind its gorgeous Antebellum façade, Southern Oaks Plantation is a unique, fresh, and surprisingly contemporary wedding venue. A quick stroll through the mansion’s immaculately decorated interior is all it takes to understand how thoroughly Southern Oaks embraces the wedding industry’s latest trends. The venue is a fusion of traditional and modern elements, combining the best of both and mixing in the distinctive culture of New Orleans. It’s an amazingly successful formula—a stylish mélange of the delicious food, exceptional service, and unmistakable style unique to the Big Easy.



Southern Oaks Plantation is set on more than three acres of manicured grounds. It is a charming and opulent estate, and a picturesque setting for photography. Unlike many historic properties, the indoor spaces at Southern Oaks have been renovated specifically for weddings. The charming rooms at the front of the mansion open into a glamorous ballroom, which becomes the focal point of the reception.



New Orleans is a city known for its culinary excellence, and Southern Oaks Plantation embraces this tradition wholeheartedly. Although the atmosphere is magical and the service impeccable, cuisine is the keystone of their business. Each celebration at Southern Oaks Plantation incorporates an all-inclusive, hand-passed menu of over eighty different items. The food is brilliantly presented and constantly served. It’s a tapas-style wedding with seemingly no end to the amount or variety of items catered.



Yet, catering is just the beginning of the amenities offered by Southern Oaks Plantation. With numerous elements provided as part of their ceremony and reception packages, hosting an event at Southern Oaks is simple and stress-free. The exceptional staff ensures every detail is meticulously planned and perfectly executed. Southern Oaks Plantation is the only venue in Louisiana that has won the “Bride’s Choice Award” from WeddingWire in 2011, 2012, and 2013, been selected as a “Best of Weddings” Pick by The Knot in 2011, 2012, and 2013, been chosen as one of New Orleans’ top wedding venues for 2012 by Brides Magazine, and been voted the #1 “Place to Get Married” in The Times-Picayune 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards.

We just had our wedding reception here on Friday, May 27th 2016. I cannot even begin to express how magical it was. The staff goes way above and beyond to make your day extra special. You are being waited on hand and foot, no one leaves hungry, and the food is simply amazing. They are such wonderful, highly organized professionals and we were always told where and what the next steps were throughout the whole night. I HIGHLY recommend this place to everyone. 5 stars isn't even enough credit to give to this venue. I am still in awe of how amazing of an experience it was. My guests have all told us that our wedding blew all other weddings that they had attended out of the water... because of how spectacular the venue was!!!

I could write a review as long as War and Peace on the amazing wedding my daughter had at Southern Oaks Plantation. If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue, no matter how close or how far you live - stop looking, this is the place for you.
From the very beginning they made us feel truly welcome. The staff went out of their way to make sure the bride and groom had everything they wanted. Any time I called and asked questions Stacy, Kim and Taylor always had the answers and were very polite and helpful. I would compare their staff to Disney’s employees, always happy and always eager to please!
Their organizational skills are unsurpassed. The ceremony and reception went perfectly and the outdoor venue was beautiful. Mr. Bobby was amazing. He surprised my daughter with fireworks and confetti at the end of the ceremony. “ It was truly a breathtaking and magical experience” were my daughters words. The reception was amazing. The food was passed at our guest’s table constantly and the variety was a true new Orleans culinary experience. Our guest are still raving about the food , the atmosphere and the beautiful venue. All of our guests expressed that this was the best reception that they had ever been to. My daughter and her husband were treated so special that they felt as if they were royalty. My husband and I had Lauren as our own personal attendant. She was incredible and she very rarely left our side.
Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Southern Oaks owner and staff for making our little girl’s wedding day a fairy tale come true.
We love you Southern Oak. May many blessings some your way just as you have been a blessing to us!!!!

Mr. Bobby and his staff at Southern Oaks Plantation were just the icing on the wedding cake to how absolutely amazing our entire experience was with SOP! I was told over and over that our wedding was the most beautiful wedding people have ever seen. Our wedding took place on Friday night December 18, 2015 and words can't begin to explain how beautiful everything was. The fact that they took care of almost everything, and for us, that even included the decor was well worth it. The food, the venue, and service was impeccable and we couldn't have asked for more!

Wow!!! Words can't describe my wedding ceremony and reception at Southern Oaks it was exquisite. On my wedding day it actually rained and we didn't know what to expect with the wedding having to be inside. We should have never questioned their ability. It was the most amazing experience of our lives. The food was exeptional and the service was a 12 of out 10. They are right there for you every step of the way and made everything hastle free. We didn't have to worry about a thing. We got all the enhancements the venu offers and they were fabulous. We are so happy we did the whole nine yards because I honestly can't tell you how breathtaking and top notch it all was the moment we arrived on the property. It was elegant and just beautiful. My pictures turned out so good and the memories will last us a life time. Bobby Asaro and Sue have a wonderful business and know what they are doing!! Not to mention how easy they made the planning process. They were so on top of things and reminders and were so good about getting back to you immediately with any questions you might have. The staff is the best. You should without a doubt choose Southern Oaks Plantation if you want a perfect wedding day!

Anthony and I cannot thank you enough for creating a wedding for us on June 27, 2015 that has exceeded our expectations and more. I could not have dreamt of a more beautiful wedding. Words truly cannot express how happy and pleased we were with the staff and presentation at Southern Oaks Plantation. You guys were wonderful and relieved me of any and all stress. Everyone was impressed and pleased with the elegance of the venue as well as the continuous delicious food and drinks. Lauren was so sweet and great, she made sure Anthony and I were well taken care of the entire night. Taylor is also great he helped out tremendously with the entire planning of my wedding. Hands down Southern Oaks Plantation is the best wedding venue in Louisiana. From the moment the pastor said you may kiss your bride, Your staff was on time and on point with my guests. When they were seated the food was waiting on them. My guest have bragged about Southern Oaks by word of mouth and through social media saying they had never been to a wedding this wonderfully put together before. I felt like a queen and truly the lady of the night when Lauren took my heels off and put my flats on. Mr. Bobby do you know pastors of churches don’t get treated this well with this type of hospitality, funny right? Surely, I am pleased to say once again I had my wedding at the best venue in Louisiana; Southern Oaks Plantation. I Give Southern Oaks Plantation a Strong 5 star Rating! Thank you all so much. You have made the wedding dreams for both my husband and I a reality! Keep up the extravagant work!

Where can we even begin about Southern Oaks Plantation? June 7, 2015 was the most amazing day of our lives. Mr. Bobby and the staff at Southern Oaks made us feel like royalty. Our wedding exceeded anything we could have ever imagined. From the sparkling ceremony, to the food (Praline Chicken...ohhhh myyyy!!!), to the reception Southern Oaks delivered A++ service. Our guests are still raving about the ambiance, food and how much fun they had. Mr. Bobby is one of the sweetest and most stylish men we've ever met. Everyone at Southern Oaks is top notch. We appreciate the care they took in helping us plan our day and blessing us with their kindness and attentiveness while we were there. This place far exceeds the monetary value. Thank you to the Southern Oaks staff for making the beginning to our life long journey simply wonderful!

There is a reason so many brides give SOP rave reviews! It is worth every penny we paid. Being that we were from Canada, and had never been to New Orleans, communication was very important to us. The staff at SOP are absolutely flawless in their execution, and whatever you are looking for on your wedding day, they will surely give it to you if its possible. The photos of the venue don't do it justice, as it is truly beautiful. They assist you with your vendors ( if they are on their list), they have a huge bar a selection, unreal food, gorgeous horses and professional staff. Mr. Bob truly believes in magical weddings, and you'll be in excellent hands for your special day.
