Boasting historic Gothic architecture, First Presbyterian Church in New Orleans offers a traditional and grand setting for your wedding ceremony. It can accommodate up to 250 guests in its pews, and everyone will enjoy the historical touches, including the 1916 Austin pipe organ. With its majestic spires, enormous and breathtaking windows letting in plenty of sunshine, and soaring ceilings, the church is impressive and lends a fairytale-like atmosphere. After the ceremony, celebrate with your nearest and dearest by exploring New Orleans- there’s plenty to do. Have celebratory cocktails (maybe a Brandy Milk Punch) at Brennan’s, piping-hot, sugary (and delicious) beignets at Café du Monde, and on warm days, snoballs at Hansen’s! Of course, don’t forget Bourbon Street and the charming French Quarter. There are also plenty of bespoke, fun corners of NOLA (like the Garden District and City Park) for photos before the ceremony. Situated in such a vibrant city and with its own charms to offer, First Presbyterian is the venue for your unforgettable day.
