The Grounds

Follow the majestic oaks along the historic bayou road to The Carriage House, a 16-acre private estate unequaled in beauty, reserved especially for your wedding or event. The Carriage House is one of South Louisiana’s most sought after destinations for Wedding Receptions, Garden Ceremonies and Benefit Galas.

Location is everything, or at least a great starting point for generating wedding ideas and themes. The natural surroundings and plantation style architecture are all part of the vision. Over twenty years ago, the Rivett family established one of the first reception facilities to provide all-inclusive wedding packages. The packages included catering, wedding cakes, beverages, music, entertainment, and much more.

The Carriage House’s professional staff guides the way and creates successful events. The legacy is continued today as the family sustains quality service and their commitment to excellence.


How long have you been in business?

The Rivett Family has been in the event planning/catering business for over 30 years. The Carriage House was established in 1992.


When I have a wedding and reception at The Carriage House how many hours do I have?

You are allotted two hours before your ceremony begins for photos, set up and rehearsal within your ceremony package. The extra hours are part of your ceremony fee so you are renting the facility for only that time frame. The ceremony package will be 3 hours from the start of the ceremony to the end of the reception. You can choose to add an additional 30 minutes for your ceremony to have a full 3 hour reception at an additional fee. Please consult with your coordinator if additional time is needed. We will work with you to arrange as much time as you need as long as it does not interfere with another event.


Are you the only caterer allowed at The Carriage House?

Yes. We provide catering for all events held at The Carriage House.
