While attending the wedding of my son’s best friend, back in 1996, Billy and I remarked at how small the venue seemed. We discovered that it was the only one in the area that allowed its clientele to do their own catering, bar service and decorating.   We had an empty building and after some discussion my son suggested, “Mom-this is what you should do with your building.”   Of course, we all chuckled a bit and made light hearted fun of the idea; but there was something to it—and we both let the idea simmer a few weeks. Before we knew it, we realized he was right.

In April of 1997, Magnolia Court Reception Hall opened and we hosted our first wedding, (Billy’s best man at our wedding and his lovely bride)  It’s amazing to see how each couple brings a part of themselves and transforms our facility…no two events have ever looked the same!

Now, after 20 years of being in business, Magnolia Court Reception Hall closed December 2017.

It has been a wonderful, rewarding time and in many ways, a labor of love—our baby. I love what I do. I love meeting my couples, getting to know them and love watching their families grow on Face Book.

Throughout the years, has achieved a high internet ranking for wedding venue searches in Louisiana.

I love website work. I love Louisiana, my home state, and I know there are many jewels in the wedding industry across the state. Many beautiful venues…many great wedding vendors, DJ’s, decorators, caterers, cake bakers, wedding planners, photographers, etc. in our great state. Many hidden gems that many of you may not know about, some that I have had an opportunity to get to know and many that I want to get to know. I want couples to have a website they can find all that they need, in one place, to plan their wedding

Thus, is a Louisiana Wedding Venue and Wedding Vendors website.

I look forward to this new venture and hope it will help venues and vendors, many who do not have the funds to advertise with large websites, to find more jobs and opportunities for growth in their business.

Nameste! Happy Planning! Adrienne, “The Wedding Whisperer”.

      After 20 years in business, we decided to close our doors at the end of 2017.
      I have turned my website, into a Louisiana Venue and Vendors list.
      When you get to my website you will see a list of Venues in the Lafayette area. I have just started and will continue to add more venues next year.

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      Congratulations to your daughter.

      We had a venue for 20 years. I closed almost 3 years ago. Being open that long, I realized how hard it is to find venues. So I turned my website into a Wedding Venue and Vendors listing page. This is a free service I provide to help couples and to help local businesses.

      If you go back to my website, you will see a list of wedding venues and vendors on our website. We have photos and descriptions of each one. You may contact as many as you would like to for information. Please let them know you heard about them through my website, Magnolia Court.
