"R+R is an incredible property and the perfect venue to give your guests a true New Orleans experience! We loved that we were able to spend the day at R+R getting ready with our bridal party and family before the wedding. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the staff was very attentive. For our reception we had about 170 guests that fit comfortably with plenty of room to move around. The location is great, there is ample parking for local guests and is a short shuttle or cab ride from CBD and Downtown hotels. Highly recommend for a romantic setting and amazing photos!"

"Race and Religious was absolutely beautiful. The moment we toured the venue we knew it was where we wanted to get married. I wanted our wedding to feel whimsical and glamorous, and Race and Religious was the perfect setting for our antique gold palette. Our guests loved dancing the night away in the courtyard! "

"This venue really made my entire wedding. It had the outdoor spaces, eclectic and old world styling, and the indoor facilities that were exactly what I was looking for. My guests talked for months about how unique and amazing this place was. The staff were always easy to reach and did their best to answer my constant barrage of questions. While it was the most expensive part of my wedding, it was definitely worth it. If you can find the money in your budget, I would say go for it. If your wedding is on the small side, this place is heaven."

"Spending the weekend at Race & Religious was like living in a fairytale. We couldn't have picked a more magical place to bring all of our people together. We loved that our wedding was literally a movable feast, and the party (and party goers) could drift from space to space throughout the night. "

"Race and Religious was a dream venue for us. It has so much character and quirk, and is naturally beautiful, so it set the whole vibe for our ceremony & reception. The staff is friendly, laid back, and extremely helpful. We used Sarah Sadler, who is their in-house wedding planner/coordinator (though you can use whoever you like). I planned the wedding, and Sarah did all the coordinating day of. Let me tell you, she and her team are AMAZING. It was maybe the best money we spent on our wedding! She goes above and beyond, and has the perfect laid back, can do attitude to counteract any wedding-related tension that inevitably pops up :) I recommend Race & Religious whole heartedly, and Sarah and her team are the perfect choice to help facilitate, since they know all the ins and outs of the venue. My experience with them was just great."
