New Orleans Wedding Reception Halls: The Westin

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Anthony Lala @ 3:55 pm

If you’re looking for a definitively New Orleans wedding, how about looking down on the entire French Quarter, river walk and most of the Central Business District? There’s a reason The Westin is the place where people in the know choose to have their wedding receptions. It doesn’t scream party, but it speaks very calmly of comfort and optimism.

The lobby is a plush affair at the top of the Canal Place shopping center with floor to ceiling – HIGH ceiling – windows that afford a clear view of most of the city south of Decatur street. That means you can see the cathedral, the square, the water, the sky and at dusk you can see the great cloud of starlings that occupies the skyline and gather to flock in front of a pink and orange streaked horizon. It’s actually a shame that the view atop The Westin is so spectacular because it actually distracts from view of the interior. Plenty of room, well appointed bars and the perfect mix of privacy and spectacle make The Westin a good choice for a larger reception for any New Orleans Destination Wedding.
