Your unforgettable story should begin in an unforgettable place; A place as unexpected and uniquely beautiful as you are.

An event in New Orleans

is an event to be remembered.

Celebrations at Felicity run the gamut. We see a wide variety of special events: wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, destination weddings, worship services, pop-up restaurants, wrap parties for film industry folks, corporate luncheons, board member gatherings, krewe meetings, and so on, and so on…

Unique events begin with unique hosts.

As Felicity is a fully customizable space, your options are endless. That said, there are a few configurations that have worked well for us in the past. We will work together – using your ideas and our experience – to create the perfect layout for your event.

To get started, check out our FLOOR PLANS (.pdf) here. We hope that you will find these plans useful. However, if you have questions after reviewing them, please do not hesitate to REACH OUT.

Event planning made easy – or, at least, easier.

Can I get a Floor Plans of the Church

Actually yes! You can download our FLOOR PLANS (.pdf) here.

Are there music restrictions?

Felicity abides by all noise statues of the City of New Orleans. Generally, if the music is at an appropriate level for a wedding, it is appropriate for the neighborhood. We do not host concerts or raves. All events must end by 10:00 PM.

Where will my guests park?

Since Felicity Church was built before the automobile, all parking nearby is all on-street parking. We always recommend busing guests, hiring cars or cabs, or – since you’re in the Big Easy – you could take the streetcar! If your guests need to drive to Felicity, please park legally and respect our neighborhood. (Thank you in advance!)

Is there a designated time for rehearsals?

We do not guarantee rehearsals on days preceding your ceremony. If your rehearsal date has not already been booked for another event, we will gladly schedule a rehearsal. In the event that it is booked by another party, we will work with you to find another time to rehearse.

Can I hold my rehearsal dinner here, too?

Just as we host wedding receptions, we would be thrilled to host your rehearsal dinner.

Can I book a tour?

Sure! Just give us a CALL or shoot us an EMAIL to schedule your visit.

How do I know what dates are open?

Check out our CALENDAR for venue availability.

How do I reserve a date?

Once you request a contract you’ll have two weeks to complete and return it with a 50% deposit and then, the date is yours!

Will you hold a date for me?

We only hold dates for clients who have submitted a contract and sent a deposit.
