i grew up in White Castle, basically the only really nice thing out there besides some of the people is Nottoway. Very nice place, the drive isn't to bad going through addis, brusly, plaquemine or you go through St. Gabriel and take the ferry.

The place is great and has gotten a lot nicer. I'm looking to getting married out there soon and have been working with their wedding planner. One of them is a younger girl named Kaitlyn (I think that's how she spells it)and she has made this whole cluster frick of planning a wedding much nicer. She very nice and seems to know her shite. We had a tasting a while back and the restaurant food was very good. You can do a ceremony in several different places like under the oaks, on the front lawn, in the white ballroom and a few others but I cant remember what they are. We picked to have it out there as opposed to other places because it was fairly cheap, great food, plenty of room for my 400 guests that will be coming and it is a beautiful place.
I know 400 guests sounds crazy but I don't have much choice. My family is huge.

Cheap in relation to other places.
Its gonna be expensive as shite but that's what happens when you have a monsterous fricking family and are one of the youngest of the 40 cousins, meaning the others already have husbands and wives. Oh well I guess.

quote: Hunt, where did you all decide on and why there over Nottoway?
We ended up getting married at San Fransico in Garyville. Couple of reasons why, we didn't want anything later than early April and Nottoway was booked until end of May and San Francisco was a little cheaper due to the fact that you could hire an outside caterer. I believe you had to Cater through Nottoway and they weren't cheap.

I'm getting married there in May - place is very nice - its pricy but alot of stuff comes with it that you would normally have to rent at other places (table,chairs, staff, etc). Also, you don't have to go overboard decorating as its nice as is.
