Hello, Fellow Travelers!
Congratulations on your engagement or special event and thank you so much for expressing interest in the property for such a special occasion!
Macarty House has all the historic charm of New Orleans without the insane wedding price tag or all the time and vendor restrictions you usually find with venue rentals. You can house your guests and yourselves, control your events over a relaxed timeline, have freedom of vendor choice, and hold multiple events over the course of your stay.
On the page named Vendors there are listed services that I have worked with on multiple events including my own. It depends what you want and how but for a traditional wedding event chair and table rental will be necessary. The property can be easily transformed to align with the aesthetic of any event. Our access and time allotment means that you can DIY if you’re in to that or we are happy to point you in the direction of planners and vendors who can fulfill all your wedding dreams. We require contracted guests to carry event insurance equal to the amount of days in their package.
The property is capable of hosting up to 150 people for a seated reception or up to 200 with a more informal cocktail approach. In either the deck area or the brick courtyard we can fit 200 chairs for a ceremony. There is a full bar, brick paved front courtyard, garden courtyard, pool, and huge deck. We have charming LED string lights throughout the property that can change color and add a hint of whimsy to the practical challenge of lighting an outdoor space. The property can be tented throughout for weather or decor and we have plenty of outdoor electrical outlets for live music, multimedia, or DJ’s.
On the page Party Centered Packages is information highlighting our Package Pricing and Wedding or Event related information. Our package allows for multiple parties over 2 or 3 days where you have access to the house and grounds including a hotel stay for up to 16 people. If you are looking to hold a small event on property during your stay or are local and would like information regarding a one time venue rental click on the page named Smaller Scaled Soiree’s.
I hope this is helpful and I would welcome a phone call or an email reply with any other questions or concerns. We would love to meet and tour the property with you as well.
All the best,
Lauren and Daniel Henry–Owners & Operators
