Best New Orleans Churches for a
Beautiful Wedding Ceremony
New Orleans is rich in history, culture, tradition, and religion. It’s no surprise that many local brides in the Louisiana area and destination brides from across the country decide to get married in the city. “Church shopping” was a concept we were unfamiliar with when we first began photographing weddings, but we realized in New Orleans this is a regular practice. As you research the churches below, you’ll quickly understand why. They are all gorgeous, each in their own right. Some of them look like they should be in Europe with their wooden and ornate detailing, or the sheer majesty of the size when you walk in the entrance. If you’re looking to keep your ceremony decor simple, most of these churches require very little in the way of decor because there is already so much character and texture present.
We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of some of our favorite local churches, which also happen to be some of the most popular in the area for a New Orleans wedding ceremony. We’ve included the church denomination, address, and website link in hopes that this will be useful during your “shopping.” We’ve even included a link to ALL of the local churches at the bottom of the post. Don’t miss the Courtyard Guide at the bottom as well if you’re looking for a courtyard reception. Happy Shopping! 🙂
