The Old Governor's Mansion, Baton Rouge

4.5
The Old Governor's Mansion is fit for a politician, princess, and movie star. We housed nine governors, hosted a reception for the Miss USA contestants, and recently leased the Mansion to be used as scenes in the movie, Pitch Perfect 2. In addition, the Old Governor’s Mansion is a historic house museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places, an elegant venue for special events, and serves as the headquarters for Preserve Louisiana.

"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."

Mrs. Lamonte (mother of the bride) November 2011

"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!"

  • 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.
