The coolest wedding venues in New Orleans. 

Here is my round up of some of the coolest venues to get married in New Orleans. If you're coming in for a destination wedding, I hope this might help out a little bit!

To be honest I haven't shot at most of these yet! I'm still working on breaking into the local destination weddings! LOL. 

1) Race and Religious 

 Capacity: 300

Capacity: 300

This is the coolest venue in town. If you want a fun, fashionable, memorable wedding in NOLA, you should check this place first. They get booked out pretty far in advance so don't dilly-dally.
