Couples meet at the Pirates Alley Cafe then find a nice spot to get married near Jackson Square for a small romantic elopement. Several spots in the French Quarter are available for an intimate ceremony. Larger weddings need to rent a place but for a few people a nice stand up ceremony can be done in certain public areas,
A short walk from Pirates Alley are the gates to Jackson Square that also can be used for a short small elopement. More info here- http://frenchquarterweddings.blogspot.com/2010/08/get-married-in-pirates-alley-new.html
