"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!"

Had a really nice time at the Men's Wearhouse Grooms show.
