In Ethel, Louisiana, this quaint building overlooks a lake and gives brides and grooms the ability to build their dream wedding as they desire. Add some candles, two people in love, and a group of folks wanting to celebrate, and I would say the space is darn near perfect.

Hidden Gems of the Red Stick: Baton Rouge Wedding Venues

Randi Fracassi

It's no secret that I love Baton Rouge -- the people, the culture, the way there's a mix of traditional values and traditions with modern ideas and design. The way residents of the city approach gatherings are set apart from the state because of this eclectic combination, and has created some of the most striking and beautiful wedding venues. That being said, there are quite a few popular and go to spaces that people adore, but among the charming paths of MidCity and down Old River Road, we have some of the most quaint and special hidden gems of venues that will leave lasting impressions on your guests for years to come. 

The James Grace House

Found in the midst of cane fields, the James Grace House is a classic Antebellum home with sprawling acres of meadows and oak trees, and offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for weddings and events. With a bridal suite and restrooms on site and the availability of tables and chairs, the James Grace house has taken every detail into consideration of what an event could need or want. The property owners are kind and relaxed, and the ease of which they work with your clients make you feel like family.

Cane Land Distilling Company

With minimalist design being combined with rustic detail, Cane Land Distilling on the edge of Downtown along the Mississippi River is the perfect setting for a more modern couple. The neutral decor that allows you to get creative with colors and design elements, as well as the views into the taproom and the actual distillery, both work in the favor of this space in making it ideal for a wedding or large party.

Lucky Plantation

Lucky Plantation is a short drive down Old River Road, where you can fly by the sugar cane fields and Mississippi River and pull into the quaint drive of the home. Sporting a lush garden and fountain as well as oak and magnolia trees over the property, Lucky Plantation is ideal for smaller and more intimate weddings seeking classic Southern Charm. The property has indoor options as well (perfect for a Rain Plan) that matches the look and feel of the rest of the home with floor-to-ceiling shutter doors and 1860's details.

The Trademark on Third

Located in the heart of Downtown Baton Rouge, the Trademark on Third is a newly renovated space in neutral tones and flooded with natural lighting, and is right above the Driftwood Cask and Barrel. What makes Trademark special and unique to the downtown area is it's proximity to nearby ceremony venues, as well as the array of options you can select from for food and beverage (that is, not just seafood from this gorgeous place!). 

More info about the Trademark can be found here

The Cabin Restaurant

The Cabin is quaint and off the beaten path in Burnside, Louisiana, and features a brick courtyard and original buildings throughout the property. With shiplap walls and rustic motifs scattered around, the Cabin is the perfect local find for a Fixer Upper aesthetic with a reasonable budget.

I hope this guide about the hidden venue gems of the Greater Baton Rouge area helps you in finding a unique venue for your big day! Each of these venues have their own distinctive charm that make them unique from each other, weather it's the location or the amenities. I strive to show reasonable and beautiful venues to my brides and grooms that fit their aesthetic and style, and if you have any suggestions of spaces within the Greater Baton Rouge area (or beyond!) I would love to hear about it over a cup of coffee. 

Happy planning,

Randi
