Wedding at the Musee Conti Wax Museum

Glowing Chinese lanterns hanging from the exposed ceiling beams make for a visually interesting background as the bride and groom have their fist dance at this Musee Conti wedding reception, which was expertly coordinated by Kelly Sherlock.

The Wax Museum, which closed in 2016 to be turned into a condominium development, was a wonderful reception venue, with an event space upstairs that had a warm, rustic look that was very visually appealing and photographed well, and plenty of space for larger weddings. This venue was similar to The Foundry, an event venue in the Warehouse District that was a favorite among wedding photographers and also closed several years ago.

Other Similar Venue Choices

If you like the look of the Wax Museum, there are several other reception venues that have some similarities. A few that come to mind are The Chicory, Bourbon Vieux, and Republic NOLA. Also, though the main ballroom of Latrobes has a different look, the courtyard (where ceremonies are typically held) features lots of exposed wood beams and gorgeous textures on the interior walls.
