Orleans Ballroom

Take stunning bridal portraits in New Orleans' oldest and grandest ballroom. Between the grand staircase and balcony, this romantic French Quarter treasure is the spot for amazing photos.

Stroll up the winding staircase to the Orleans Ballroom where you can meander under the crystal chandelier. Romantic wall sconces and gold accents create a amorously warm environment for beautiful photos.

Step outside on the large, historic balcony for a true French Quarter experience. The striking St. Louis Cathedral is a iconic highlight in any photo!

Any photography taken onsite requires a photography contract and prior approval by Bourbon Orleans management. See below for pricing and details.
