  • I am originally from New Orleans. My husband and I wanted to come back to celebrate in the city where we got married 25 years ago. With most of our guests coming from out of town, we wanted a venue close to downtown with an elegant ambiance. The Federal Ballroom fit the description and when we met Rebecca O'Meara, we knew it was a perfect match. Words cannot adequately express what Rebecca did for us and our family. What she did was nothing short of a labor of love. She places a premium not only in ensuring you and your guests have great memories, but also magical moments throughout the evening. She is an expert planner, ensuring EVERY detail is captured from begin to end. She is patient, understanding, and supportive throughout the entire process. Working with Rebecca and the team was really easy. The food and staff from Capdeboscq Catering were great and the cakes from Swiss Confectionary were fantastic. We had a phenomenal experience for our 25th Anniversary, one we will remember f... Read more

  • From the beginning to the end, my experience at the Federal Ballroom was nothing but exceptional. Working with Rebecca really felt like we had our own private wedding planner who made sure that everything was perfect and that there would be no stress on our wedding day. Would recommend 100%.

  • The Federal Ballroom was the perfect venue for our destination wedding. The venue coordinator Rebecca was amazing to work with before,during, and after! The venue is beautiful and catering provides PLENTY of delicious food. Besides the venue being perfect with it's gorgeous columns, vintage elevator and floor to ceiling windows working with Rebecca you don't have to worry about a thing. She makes sure that every thing goes smoothly from day of schedule,centerpieces, last minute details down to picking up everything the next day. Between Rebecca and our personal attendant Sharon it was a relief to be able to just enjoy the night celebrating with our family and friends.

  • We recently held our wedding at The Federal Ballroom, and WOW, is the best way to describe the experience. From the moment we met with Rebecca to tour the venue through the moment we picked up our final items to depart, she was phenomenal! She made us feel like we were the only couple that mattered. The ceremony and reception space was absolutely beautiful, thanks to Rebecca, Jeanette, and her team taking the time to understand exactly how we wanted things. The food, catered by Capdeboscq, is still being talked about! Our guest were amazed at the taste, quantity, and quality of the food... (and we had several chefs at our wedding as guest). Larry was a pleasure to work with. Sharon took great care of us all night. The bartender “Big Al” became everyone’s friend. Our wedding and groom’s cakes were moist and flavorful (Gambino’s). was great. New Orleans PD made sure that we got an emmaculate photo in the street. It was the perfect venue for us to celebrate our new union. Th... Read more

  • Definitely book this venue! Our wedding turned out even better than I could have hoped for. The venue was beautiful and Becca is amazing! She was so helpful before the wedding and everything ran smoothly the day of our reception because of her. She was so accommodating and helped even with little details that I thought I'd be taking care of myself. I highly recommend having your wedding here!!

  • I can't say enough good things about the Federal Ballroom!!! My husband and I just had our wedding reception here on December 29, 2016. I am from San Diego, but my husband and I started dating in New Orleans and we knew we wanted to return for our wedding. I was nervous about planning a destination wedding, but Rebecca, the wedding coordinator at Federal Ballroom made it a breeze. She helped me pick centerpieces, gave advice on picking vendors, and ensured everything was in place for our big day. She was patient, enthusiastic, and a calming presence through the whole process. I was blown away when I entered the Ballroom the night of our reception at how elegant it all was. Additionally, the Federal Ballroom uses Capdebosque catering which was a huge hit with our guests. Their food was delicious and they even set up a Hurricane Bar and made bags of beignets to-go for all the guests to take as they left the venue which people loved!!! Also, Sharon and Larry from Capdebosque ensured my hu... Read more

  • Our reception at the Federal Ballroom was everything I could have ever wished for and more for my wedding. Our experience met and exceeded all of my wedding day dreams! The Ballroom itself is exceptionally elegant and beautiful. We especially loved the high ceilings, beautiful tall columns, floor-to-ceiling windows, lovely lighting, and large dance floor with a great area for the band. Being able to have Rebecca as the wedding coordinator is what made our experience at the Federal Ballroom so fantastic. She is absolutely wonderful to work with! The decision to forgo hiring a wedding planner for a New Orleans wedding can be a little stressful and worrisome. but Becca made all of those concerns go away. She helped throughout the entire wedding process and was always willing to give her advice and expertise for our wedding planning. We visited the Federal Ballroom a few times before the wedding and enjoyed each visit with Becca. The day of the wedding, Becca took care of everything! We ... Read more

  • I had my ceremony and reception at the Federal Ballroom. It was so perfect! Rebecca was so accommodating and took care of everything. It was as stress-free as a wedding can possibly be. The in house catering was delicious and the family and friends had so much fun. All I kept hearing after the wedding was how much of a good time everyone had. I have no complaints and would recommend this venue to any brides interested in getting married in New Orleans. Also, having our names on the marquee in the front of the building was pretty cool! Beautiful venue and great people to work with!

  • I had a destination wedding in New Orleans on August 23, 2014. My reception was held at the Federal Ballroom and it was absolutely amazing! The food was great and everyone was raving about it (the caterers that work with the Federal Ballroom were a joy to work with and they have a really good selection of food items to choose from). The venue is unique and very eloquent. I looked at several venues in New Orleans and The Federal Ballroom is the best bang for your buck. The Federal Ballroom also has something that the other venues did not offer and her name is Rebecca O'Meara. Rebecca is an angel sent from God. Seriously, this lady is amazing! You do not need to hire a wedding coordinator or wedding planner if you are having your reception and/or ceremony at the Federal Ballroom. Rebecca handles everything and she made sure that everything was perfect for my wedding reception (she even helped me with my Ceremony that was held at another venue). She also saved me over $1,300.00 on my cen... Read more

  • These guys and their catering partners Capdebosqc Catering were COMPLETELY AMAZING !! I cannot recommend them highly enough- not only did they do things EXACTLY the way I requested and envisioned...they were super nice and courteous to my family and bridal party! My guests had an amazing time and I know it was due largely to the professionalism of the Federal Ballroom staff!!

  • Being an out of town bride, Rebecca was helpful in meeting with us when we were in town to go over our wedding accommodations. There were times though that it was a little difficult to get in touch with Rebecca, and I would have to follow up with emails 2x before I'd receive a response to my email. The venue was beautiful for the wedding and all of our guest had a nice time. Rebecca was very accommodating when we had to drop off decorations and did a great job with the setup and carrying through my vision for the day.

  • The Federal Ballroom is an amazing place to have a wedding reception. Rebecca, the wedding planner, is there with you through the entire process (from booking to the night of the reception). She is amazing to work with. The food was exceptional and Mr. Gene Capdebosq was a pleasure to work with. He worked with every request we had. The lighting in the room was wonderful for a night time reception. The bride added a second line band to end the reception and that was something you should always have. They danced around the ballroom and down to the French Quarter. I would recommend the Federal Ballroom for any bride or even a banquet. I can't say enough good things about this place!

  • The Federal ballroom was the perfect venue for us. Rebecca is so helpful and wants nothing more than to make your day special. She coordinated everything with the caterer. She coordinated the whole flow of events. The room itself is beautiful. I recommend it to anyone.
