This will be the location for my wedding and reception. It's an old southern plantation called Oak Alley and it was named for the rows of live oak trees which were planted in the early 1700s. This photo shows how it will be lit up for my evening-time ceremony.

Seven Oaks Plantation, was across the Miss. river from New Orleans Audubon Zoo in the Westwego community. Built ca. 1840, it was once one of the greatest sugar plantations along River Road. Occupied by both Confederate & Union troops during the Civil War. Used as army barracks during WWI. Vacated in 1957, it went into a state of deterioration. It was sadly demolished in 1977. Note it had 8 columns on the front & back & 7 columns on the sides.
