"I just wanted to let you know that the Old Governor's mansion was the perfect venue for Lauren's wedding reception. Everything ran smoothly, thanks to Cammie's attention to every detail. I was able to enjoy myself and not worry about a thing. Cammie is amazing. I am thankful that the public has the opportunity to use that beautiful facility. It's a treasure to Baton Rouge."

"Thank you so much for your assistance with the wedding and taking the time to work with us. The wedding was beautiful and having you as coordinator helped make the evening. My night was stress free because I knew you were handling all behind the scene details. You and the Governor's Mansion will always be recommended to family and friends with any future events and it was a pleasure meeting you and working on my daughter's wedding at this venue. Thanks again!"

The Old Governor's Mansion Reviews
Was at a wedding reception there this past weekend. What a beautiful venue! Am looking forward to going back and getting a proper tour. The interior and the grounds are just gorgeous! more »
Loved going through here. Seeing how they lived back in the early years. Very grand place. Parking was OK. Climb up hill is rough, drive up and drop off passengers. We did. A must see for history Buff... more »
We were unable to take the 1 hour tour, but the guide let us look in the first floor rooms. The ballroom has large mirrors at each end with 3 chandeliers in the room. In the middle of the room, looking at either mirror, the chandeliers seem to go on for ever! The guide was a true Southern gentleman, a year younger than the mansion.
Had a really nice time at the Men's Wearhouse Grooms show.
