  • Wow, I can’t say enough good things about Stage 1! I am so incredibly happy we chose this venue for our wedding reception. From start to finish, Andrea was just a joy to work with. We had chosen our date long before Covid was an issue, and we did not want to change dates. Andrea did everything possible to accommodate us and make our guests feel safe. When looking at venues, one of Stage 1’s biggest selling points for us was the huge dance floor, and we were especially glad to have that extra space when social distancing mandates came into play. Even while following COVID protocols, she truly helped us have the most normal reception possible! She literally took care of everything so that the reception flowed smoothly. We always had a drink in hand and a plate of food ready for us at our table! The food was outstanding, and all of our guests are still commenting on how good the food was and that it was the best wedding reception they’d ever been to! We were thankful th... Read more

  • Its not enough things I could say about Andrea (all good things of course). Andrea is literally a life saver she took the stress off of me especially since we planned a wedding for 2 years to have COVID19 and Hurricane Delta try to stop us. Andrea was there every step of the way, I mean every step. Her venue is amazing her packages comes with everything you could ask for. You are welcome to add any decorations you want and she would put out for you. Overall book with her and you will not be disappointed!

    Nasha and Charles, What an amazing journey we had together. Who knew all of our lives would change in 2020 because of this thing called Covid 19. Thank you for allowing me to host your wedding and reception! Not even Hurricane Laura or Delta could stop us! 10-10-20 will always be an important date to us all. Many blessings, Andrea

  • We got married during Covid 19. Before the pandemic we had 150-200 people coming to the wedding and then half of the list did not want to come out of fear. Ms. Andrea worked with us to help take away my stress and was flexible in this unprecedented time! The decorations were beautiful! During the reception here she always made sure we had food and drinks for us. Everything was perfect and we had such a fun and memorable night!

    Rebecca and Cody, Wow! What a journey this year has taken us on... Covid 19, Hurricane Laura and Delta! Seriously would of gotten to most people but you handled it like a champ. It was so much fun watching you and Cody dance. Everyone was ready to be with family and friends after this crazy year. So glad we had good things happen in 2020 and your wedding/ reception was one of them! Thank you for choosing us! Sincerely, Andrea

    Aubree, 11 months in and you finally came to get your beautiful portrait and bouquet. Just picking, that is because you knew it would be safe right? I am so happy that you were able to experience your wedding and reception without Covid attached to your date. I will never forget you and your family. Can't wait to see what you are planning to do for next year... Yours truly, Andrea

  • Everything about this venue is phenomenal. We had our daughter reception there and had the opportunity to meet one of the most sweetest person you could ever ask for, Mrs. Andrea. She made our entire year of planning so so stress free, she always kept us calm when I thought I was losing it. My daughter reception was everything she and her fiance dreamed of, very professional in every area of the reception, Mrs. Andrea was so compassionate and caring at all times and her entire staff, very friendly. Thank you so so much for a stress free reception, we loved everything, the decor, the food and most of all Mrs. Andrea. I'm just sorry I have no more children to marry. I would highly highly recommend Stage 1 for your weddings or any other occasions. Thanks Mrs. Andrea Mrs. J. Emery

  • Andrea is the best out there! No doubt! No question! Not up for debate! She made our big day so wonderfully perfect and smooth! Even when my husband's father was late she kept her cool and everything flowed just fine! She is beyond the sweetest person and I wouldn't wanted to have been any other wedding coordinator's bride! My husband and I were beyond thrilled and pleased with our big day! If we could do it all over again, I promise it would be at Stage 1 hands down every time! The only thing we would ever change is make our wedding like 3 hours longer because we had so much fun it went by incredibly too fast! We stepped in the hall while looking for locations and immediately knew this was our wedding place! Also best value in town! Can't be Andrea at Stage 1! I promise she'll make your wedding everything you've dreamed of and more! ❤

    Lauren, You, Zach, and Grandma Linda were the best! It was my pleasure making your day a little less stress free. Watching you Zach practice your 1st dance made me cry. You two were such perfectionist that it made me giggle as well... LOVED every moment. Thank you for making us your choice for your wedding/reception.

  • My husband and I had the absolute, most amazing, beautiful, and perfect wedding day! This experience was made possible by many people, especially Ms. Andrea. She made sure our reception flowed smoothly and the exact way we had wished and hoped for! Ms. Andrea made great suggestions for the order of events such as when to take photos, when to perform dances, and reminding us to take in the moment and have fun! Her experience with special occasions is evident and a huge reassurance on such a big and special day! Ms. Andrea made sure all of our many guests were attended to and happy. However, she was especially concerned with my husband and I, she made sure we were beyond satisfied the whole evening. She even allowed us to spend an afternoon practicing our first dance in the ballroom a few days prior to the wedding! We could not have fathomed a better venue to celebrate the most important day of our relationship thus far together! Thank you Stage One and Ms. Andrea!! We loved every moment... Read more

    I enjoyed every moment getting to know you two as well. You are the reason why my job is truly magnificent! Being that you are out of state, know that if you come to BR- you are always welcome to come by for a cup of coffee. Better yet, come by to take a picture underneath the chandelier for your 1st anniversary dance.

  • Ms. Andrea really outdid herself. She listened and paid attention to every detail I asked for. She allowed for the transition of the reception to go very smoothly. It was worth every penny spent. I did not have to worry about anything and we got to enjoy our special day. I highly recommend Stage One for your wedding venue!

  • Andrea was absolutely incredible throughout our entire wedding process. After I had my first venue canceled out from under me, I called Andrea in a panic. Immediately she made me feel calm and let me know that my wedding day was going to be just perfect. Usually, Stage One doesn't host weddings as small as mine but Andrea was flexible throughout the entire process and made our reception a dream. You will not find a better value for your money around the entire Baton Rouge area. We still get compliments on the decor and food. Thank you, Andrea, for the best day ever!

    Lorin, It was my pleasure to be at service to you. Even after 36 years of planning weddings and receptions, I still love what I do because of couples like you two. Thank you for the lovely pictures and Thank you for choosing Stage 1!
