This beautiful bride dances with a friend during her wedding reception at the Federal Ballroom in the Security Center. This impressive building was constructed in 1923 as a Federal Reserve Bank, and is now used as a secure storage facility, complete with a large vault with a massive door that makes for an interesting background for a bride and groom photo before the reception begins.
The Federal Ballroom is a unique venue that can accommodate ceremonies and receptions, and is conveniently located on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line. Several major hotels are located nearby, and Immaculate Conception Church is right around the corner, making the combination of a ceremony there at the Jesuit Church and the reception at the Federal Ballroom a popular choice for New Orleans brides.
Location: 147 Carondelet St, New Orleans, LA 70130.
