Marigny Opera House

725 St Ferdinand St, New Orleans, LA, United States

Solange wasn’t the first to stumble upon the hallowed steps of the Marigny Opera Housefor her famed nuptials. These sacred halls have been previously walked by the likes of Lake Bell and her tattoo-artist hubby, you may recall the fantastically inventive dress she wore.




The Venue

The real star here though, is the Marigny Opera House. Originally a Holy Trinity Catholic Church, built in 1847. This place is surrounded by idyllic creole cottages, and a close proximity to the downtown hustle and bustle of bourbon street. Designed by architect Theodore Giraud for the German Catholic’s of Faubourg Marigny. The Marigny opera house has lived through many natural threats, that has left it’s walls with beautiful textures and ample character.

The history of this sacred landmark alone, is enough to get any venue enthusiast excited, but set your gaze at some of the curated gala’s that have come before. Here’s a few, just to give you an idea of the depth and character of this space.

The Details

Solange put a lot of her own creative flair into this event. She chose to collaborate with friends, family, and those closest to her for this special day. Solange and her man, Alan Ferguson asked all of their guests to wear white, furthering the minimalist aesthetic that they were going for.

But, don’t stare too long, the Marigny Opera House only books a few private events a year, and were guessing that they book up quick. Especially when the Knowles family starts taking over your venue space for group photos like this.
