  • Stacey made our dreams come true, she is a queen at what she does and she made our dream wedding possible. We flew in from Toronto, had about 100 people fly in as well. the food was PERFECT! Venue was PERFECT, everything was PERFECT!!! If you are in NOLA and not doing your wedding at SOP, you're doing it wrong.

  • Very impressive. My wife and I got married here on April 27, 2019. The folks at Southern Oaks Plantation (SOP) have wedding planning and execution down to a science. From the very beginning of our contact with them, they were professional and responsible. They assigned Lauren Burgess as the primary point of contact for our wedding and she remained attentive and friendly throughout. She seemed genuinely excited to be planning our wedding and was very easy to work with. SOP handles the majority of details for the ceremony and reception so it makes things easy on the bride and groom during the planning process. On the day of, they had individual people assigned to different roles taking care of specific people and things, and had a standardized process for preparing the bridal party for the ceremony, which was executed flawlessly. There are only two things I would do differently. During the ceremony itself I would have liked more guidance on where exactly to stand as bridge and groom...we... Read more

  • My daughter was married here on October 26, 2019. First, I will start with the incredible professionalism of the entire staff from Mr. Bobby on down. He leads by example. The day before her wedding, sub-tropical Olga reared her ugly head and wreaked havoc on New Orleans. The MSY airport was even closed on Saturday due to energy outages. Southern Oaks was not spared her wrath. By the morning, the damage to trees and vegetation in the area was widespread. Mr. Bobby quickly assembled all hands and cleared all the damage from the grounds. By the time we arrived for the one o'clock wedding there was absolutely no evidence that a storm had even occurred. After seeking out Mr. Bobby upon my arrival, to whom I had spoken to numerous times but never met, he apologized profusely for not being in a tuxedo due to the last minute clean up. He earnestly cares for every couple and wants there day to be perfect and will do whatever it takes to achieve that goal. My daughter's wedding followed her old... Read more

  • Oh my goodness. Where do I begin. I could not thank Southern Oaks Plantation enough for the magical wedding we had this December. Mr. Bobby, you are an amazing human being. He was there himself and talked to me and assured me how great everything was going to be and asked me what exactly I had in mind and his opinions and let me tell you, our minds were blown myself included. When we booked with Southern Oaks Plantation we knew this was a great venue but we had no idea how GREAT it was going to be. I have had multiple people including kids tell me how this was the best wedding they had been to. The staff is AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. I had champagne all night, they made sure we ate, made sure our families were doing okay, I mean you name it, they made sure it happened. now about the food.... THE BEST FOOD I HAVE HAD! wow just wow. the food kept coming from the moment everyone went in and it did not stop. I have had almost every single guest at the wedding comment on how great the food wa... Read more

  • As a Mother's point of view! We all want our daughter's to have the wedding of their dreams. LOOK NO FARTHER!!! From start to finish Southern Oaks was amazing. Bobby Asaro and his staff are the absolute best in the business. What makes them a step above all others is their passion for what they do it is not just a job it is Bobby's calling. From the day we walked in to book we knew we made the right choice with our daughter. They left no detail unturned. They were our wedding planners, they recommend an amazing list of vendors we might need. We chose all of our vendors based on their recommendations including bakery. Limos. Photographer , flowers, makeup artist, invitations etc. and were super pleased with all! The venue itself is so classy , elegant, and just plain amazing. Southern Oaks is a one stop venue for all of your wedding needs. Our daughter chose to be married in church and have her reception at Southern Oaks. Bobby was there to greet us as we arrived! Not many owners ca... Read more

  • I absolutely recommend Southern Oaks!! The staff is AMAZING! Their focus was on my husband and I all night. The owner even went out of his way to add a few special touches to the night! They were so helpful throughout the entire process and made me feel like I could put all my trust in them. Also, ALL of our guests raved about how good the food was!

  • I don’t even know where to begin with this – it’s hard to put into words just how perfect and magical Southern Oaks and the staff truly are, but this is the best word I can think of to describe this place…Magic. We had a year to plan this destination wedding, and Mr. Bobby, Lauren, and the rest of the staff made it the easiest process throughout the entire year..alleviating all the worries and stress that brides experience while planning a wedding. No matter how many questions I asked, how many emails I sent (and how annoying I’m sure my mother and I both were), Lauren always responded so quickly, with such a great attitude, and answered every question in such detail. I could go on and on about how amazing they were leading up to the big day, but what brings me to actual tears is how they treated us the day of. First off, if you just visit Southern Oaks, you’ll see that the plantation sells itself. It’s truly something that you only see in movies and magazines..the Spanis... Read more

  • Holy smokes! Where do I begin??? This place, the employees, the atmosphere! It is the most perfect place to have your wedding! The first time I walked though that door I was absolutely taken away! I was introduced to an amazing lady named Lauren. She was the sweetest person I had dealt with while going crazy trying to find a place to hold my wedding. She answered any questions I had and was so patient. I was later introduced to Mr. Bobby. Well he has that perfect southern charm and made us feel like he has been knowing us for years. We had our baby and he heard from Lauren that I am a huge Disney fan. Well hello, I use to work at Disney! Lol anyways, he gave our little girl a stuffed Minnie Mouse. It’s the little things that catches people’s attention. She still has it and carries it around all the time. The whole place made you feel like you were home! The absolute best! I will take you to the week of our weeding. I was a stressed bride to say the least. The day we went to drop s... Read more

  • Where do I begin?!?!? Rasheed and I knew we wanted our wedding to be a destination experience....and couldn't think of a more appropriate city than "NOLA....BAAABBBYYY!" because of it's deep rooted culture, electric energy, sexy vibe, hospitable residents and the delicious cuisine. So thus begin our quest for a wedding venue. We initially set our sights on another venue in NOLA, but upon my further research, I came across Southern Oaks Plantation.....and the rest is history! From the first time I called the venue, to the day our car service pulled off of the property after our wedding/reception, it was nothing short of pure excellence on behalf of Stacey (my doll), Lauren and all the other members of Southern Oaks. We fell in love and booked our date just by the pictures, videos and conversations we had with Stacey. Once we had the opportunity to travel down to NOLA and actually visit the venue and meet Stacey in person, it was no doubt we made the right decision! The venue is AMAZ... Read more

The staff, food, service, and grounds are top notch. Such a glorious plantation all around. So many options in planning and they lead you all the way through!

  • We got married at Southern Oaks Plantation on March 23, 2019. I’ve always dreamed of getting married at this venue. Our wedding day, was the best day of our lives! We couldn’t have selected a more perfect wedding venue. The food was absolutely delicious , the venue was remarkably beautiful, and the entire staff is highly organized and exceptionally friendly!

  • Where do I begin? The moment I stepped foot in Southern Oaks Plantation, I knew it was the perfect location for my husband and I to say I DO! The owner, Mr Bobby, was there on the first day we visited and you can tell he is passionate about his operation. Every detail is executed with care and precision. They were patient along the way and answered my emails promptly and professionally. They allowed me to incorporate personal details like chair sashes and a cigar bar, so I felt like my wedding had my own personal touches. I can’t say enough about the staff and service you will receive when choosing Southern Oaks Plantation. Don’t think twice about it!!!!
