The White Magnolia


The White Magnollia, located in Kentwood, Louisiana, offers the perfect "outdoor" area for a wedding. In September of 2022, the "chapel" was built as an add-on to the already gorgeous venue. Its beautiful attributes will leave you speechless when you see the open-air chapel along the gorgeous pond and perfect courtyard. It's perfection in and of itself - an outdoor ceremony for that incredible "golden hour" lighting that's unhindered by rain since it's covered with a large, white, tin roof.

The Old Governor's Mansion


Although it can only accommodate for smaller weddings, The Old Governor's Mansion in downtown Baton Rouge has an outdoor ceremony site that is so pretty! The indoor area for the reception is also so historic and has that perfect Victorian look.


Houmas House


Located in Darrow and just 30 miles from Baton Rouge, Houmas House has exquisite grounds and gardens that are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to outdoor ceremony locations. Everything from the oaks that lead to the house, the house itself, the beautiful fountain along with the lit arch are all just beautiful!
