Weddings & Private Events

Congratulations on planning your upcoming wedding or private event!


You're welcome to visit the Courtyard anytime during business hours, but formal site visits are scheduled by appointment only when Cafe Amelie is not open for regular service (appointments are usually available between 8-11am and between 3-5pm) on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays.  A typical site visit takes about 30-45 minutes and you should expect to leave with all your 'major' questions answered.


Keep in mind the Courtyard is available for private events that average between 4-6 hours. A private event is a buyout of the restaurant.  Cafe Amelie is not available for wedding ceremonies only.  The minimum group size is 100 guests; unfortunately we're not able to accommodate requests for groups less than 100 guests.  The maximum is 150 guests and we can guarantee seating for about 125 guests.


Please visit these links for an event proposal for 100 guests (the minimum group size wedding event we host), 125 guests & 150 guests (the maximum group size we host).

Rental charges for a private event begin at $4500.00 for four hours; which includes a $500 refundable damage deposit. With prior notice, your event can be extended at $750.00 per hour (10:00pm is the latest for any private event).  To secure your requested date, we require full payment of the venue rental fee. Food, beverage, staffing and enhancements are additional but seamlessly handled by the Cafe Amelie event team.

For further questions or to make an appointment to discuss your event, please contact Danny Akers, General Manager/Events Planner, at (504) 412-8965 or visit our contact page.
