Ceremonies and Receptions at Degas House

Degas House has earned The Knot pick "Best of Weddings" for 2013, 2014, and 2015 because of its professional wedding staff and their committment to making sure your wedding exceeds your expectations. Our beautiful French Quarter style courtyard and parlors provide the perfect venue for this most special event. Degas House was chosen for this award by brides who recommended it as an exceptional wedding and reception venue, and it was also an editorial pick from The Knot offices in New York. The award is difficult to obtain due to fierce competition, and Degas House is proud to have been selected for this honor for three years in a row.

At Degas House we are committed to making your New Orleans Wedding a Masterpiece. Our elegant Southern Mansion is the only home or studio of French Impressionist Master, Edgar Degas, open to the public anywhere in the world, making it a unique wedding and reception venue.
