Lang House Wedding in Mandeville Louisiana

Kelly and Lindsay's wedding was a delightful and memorable event! The brides both got ready at the Blue Heron Bed & Breakfast in Mandeville, with the ceremony and reception taking place at Lang House just a few blocks away, though in adjacent rooms so they could not see each other.

At the beginning of the ceremony, rather than Kelly processing down the aisle, she instead came through the house and out the back door onto the porch, where Lindsay waited, similar to how first looks are sometimes done. Here's the moment they first saw each other:

The Sweet Life Bakery crafted the gorgeous cake, and Iris Floral arranged the beautiful flowers. At the end of the night, the couple was given a fabulous send-off as guests tossed birdseed!

Historic Event Venue in Mandeville

Named for Jean Baptiste Lang, who originally built it around 1850, this historically-rich cottage was damaged in Hurricane Katrina, but was saved from destruction when its owners donated the structure, which was moved from the lakefront land where it had rested for 150 years, to its current location several blocks inland, nestled in the Kier Gardens.

The Old Mandeville Historic Association then painstakingly and lovingly restored the house, which now serves as a fascinating and educational museum, and with indoor and outdoor space available, also makes for a fantastic event venue for smaller weddings and other gatherings on the northshore.
