Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day. What is the one thing these three holidays have in common? Proposals, of course! Studies show that more couples get engaged on holidays than any other time of year, and since these three happen in such quick succession, we’re betting that thousands of couples in America are now planning their upcoming nuptials. To this end, we invite you to have your intimate wedding or elopement right here at Avenue Inn!
Whether you elect to include a small ceremony during your vacation visit, or choose a full, small-wedding event (up to 30 total people), our beautiful Garden District inn is a gorgeous destination location and perfect backdrop for your vows, your cake reception, and photographs.
Want additional settings for your photographs? It’s as easy as heading out front and hopping on a streetcar (or we can certainly have a limo, taxi, or van ready for your use out front). Head further uptown to Audubon Park and take advantage of the live oaks, the statuary, bridges and water features, and architectural details. Or choose a location closer to the river and French Quarter at the Riverwalk, Jackson Square, and St. Louis Cathedral. Riverfront Park also gives you natural settings right next to the majestic Mississippi River. Fans of the darker side of life? Lafayette Cemetery is just a mile from our front door. Just ask – we’re full of location ideas for those perfect memories!
If you’d like to conclude your nuptials and cake cutting (for those Kodak moments) with a reception or dinner, we can also point you to the ideal restaurant based on your tastes and the size of your party.
And the best thing about planning your bed and breakfast wedding? You can leave most of the details up to us! We’ll order the flowers, provide a delicious celebration cake, bring in the officiate, and make sure the photographer is on the ready. Our hope is to make it as easy on you as possible, assuring your destination wedding is truly an enjoyable experience. And why not extend your stay into a honeymoon vacation as well? You can even come down early and treat your wedding participants to a fun bachelor/bachelorette party beforehand.
