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.

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!

Thanks Earlisha

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.

There are no words to convey how perfect my wedding was at Southern Oaks. Our ceremony took place this past Sunday (April 12, 2015), and even though we couldn’t stick to our original plan due to rain, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Mr. Bobby and his staff made sure they did everything possible to still give my new husband and me the most magical experience ever. They went above and beyond! The inside ceremony space was simply breathtaking. They even surprised us with fireworks since we couldn’t do the horse and carriage! Miss Stacey was the perfect hostess and made sure everything flowed from one event to the other seamlessly. Our friends and family were blown away by every detail. We have received countless compliments on how amazing the food was, how unique the reception was, and how it was all around the best wedding they have ever been to. I can honestly say it was the best day ever, and I am so grateful for Southern Oaks and their staff for making it possible.

I could go on forever about how amazing Southern Oaks Plantation was for our wedding his past Friday but I don't think I have enough space here. Our wedding was amazing and the staff and owners at Southern Oaks made sure that it turned out perfect. The venue is beautiful, the food was amazing, the staff were so kind and caring, the attendants for the couple and their family made sure we always were taken care of, Mr. Asaro was just great, and it even defied the weather and didn't rain!! Our ceremony was so beautiful I'm still thinking about it a week later. Southern Oaks makes sure that everything is taken care of and helps you along the way to make sure you have the wedding you have always dreamed of. I know I bombarded them with emails the few weeks before the wedding but they were there to answer all of my questions, and I had a lot! They know how to have a great wedding and since all they do are weddings trust me when I say they are really amazing weddings!! I just can't say enough how beautiful and perfect our wedding night was and my only piece of advice to newly engaged couples who want to get married in New Orleans is come to Southern Oaks Plantation and make sure to have it at night!! You can't beat the lighting at SOP, our wedding was right as the sunset and the lights were beautiful and I felt like I was in a fairy tale.

Thank you so much Southern Oaks.

If you want your wedding to be perfect, book it at Southern Oaks. The venue is gorgeous. It is the most elegant and classy looking place you could ever hope for. The entire staff is incredible. Their goal is making sure your wedding and reception are perfect. If you have a favorite drink, they make sure your hand is never empty. Kim walked us through our rehearsal and made sure everything was planned out in advance down to the smallest detail. She, Lauren, Bobby, and everyone else at Southern Oaks gave us everything we needed before we even knew we needed it. The staff even threw in a few complementary surprises for us. I told them at the end of the night that I would rate them an 11/10 and they truly deserve it. The food, which was plentiful, is delicious. The dj was great and played all the right songs at all the right moments. The reception area is huge and open, with plenty of seating and a big dance floor. The attention to detail is simply stunning. This place is perfect.

I could not think of any place better to get married then Southern Oaks Plantation. The yard, features, building, stable for the horses, pool and decor were absolutley amazing and beautiful. The staff who assisted us on our wedding day were so professional and curtious and attended to our every desire. The wedding ran smoothly with absolutely no hiccups and the feeling the staff give you while there is that even if there was, they would have it under control. They suprised us with a couple of things which made the day even more special then it already was. Coming from Australia to this venue and only looking at it through a computer beforehand, don't do the venue justice. It is breathtaking. If I could get married any where in the world again it would be at Southern Oaks Plantation.

I don't have enough time to sufficiently explain how amazing Southern Oaks is. They were immediately responsive to every question and email.

I would especially recommend this venue if you're an out-of-town bride. They provide the DJ, caterer, table/linen rentals, and day-of coordinators. Everyone I worked with was extraordinarily professional and easy to work with. Everything I wanted, they made happen. All of my guests told me that this was the best wedding they'd ever attended and they'd never had better food.

You will NOT regret choosing this venue for your wedding.
