“We had the presence of mind that it had to be done correctly from the very beginning or we knew it wouldn’t last.” – Bobby Asaro
“We did the parents’ events, and now they are coming back for their children’s wedding, we just love it! We even had wedding recently and the bride had been a flower girl who sat on our steps, and knew from that day that she would get married here too.” – Sue Asaro
On Saturday, January 12, 2019 the Asaro family will celebrate their 32nd year in business! With the ever changing scenery of the events in New Orleans, it was important for this family to establish their values and uphold a standard of impeccable customer service that has proven effective over decades of happy couples! Bobby and Sue tell stories of couples pulling them aside at recent weddings to share stories of their own weddings from 12, 15, and 20 + years ago. There was even one wedding in particular where their guest list boasted SEVEN couples that had wed at Southern Oaks Plantation! The stories of family traditions could go on and on, but one of our favorites includes Southern Oaks’ very own, Lauren Burgess. She wed here at the plantation in 2017 after working for the venue for nearly 12 years! Moreover, her mother and aunt had a DOUBLE wedding at the plantation 31 years earlier – what a remarkable family tradition.
We thank you, our supportive clients and happy couples, for being with us over the last three decades! There is nothing we love more than being a part of the most special day of your lives! From a drawing on a napkin to here we are today.. Cheers to the next 32 years and many more!
