How can I get married in Jackson Square?
Contact the New Orleans Parks and Parkways Dept. Their phone number is 504-658-3200, or you can email them at email@example.com. To rent inside the park you need to complete a form and pay a fee. You need to rent chairs if needed for a large wedding up to 200 people. No food or drink is allowed in park, just the ceremony. A small wedding at the gate is free to use. Reception, food, drinks, at any of several places adjacent to the park.Alternate spots for small elopements are the gates to the Square and Pirates Alley. The cafe in the alley has restrooms, tables, refreshments for a small elopement in the alley or we can walk to an available gate to the Square. Contact Chaplain Schwehm for elopements at the gate to the park. See his web page at: http://www.figstreet.com/guesthouse/jacksonsquarewedding.html
Gate on St. Peter St can be used for small weddings on a first come first serve basis. Schedule an appointment with Chaplain Schwehm to perform your elopement here. See www.figstreet.com/weddings for details. As many as 20 people can fit in this space or as few as you like. It is open and people do walk by but most stop to watch the wedding. Other more private spots are in the walk ways beside the church in Pirates Alley.
