If you’re searching for a venue that is absolutely one of a kind, and truly has it all… you must take a tour of Bayou Haven. This impressive venue is a spectacular showstopper. At the heart of Bayou Haven is the Grand Reception Barn nestled on 12+ wooded acres alongside the outdoor arbor and pond. The 9,500 square foot French Provincial inspired Grand Reception Barn was meticulously designed to help you step back to a moment in time where rustic old world meets elegance and grace. Complementing the Reception Barn is The Chapel at Bayou Haven which offers indoor ceremonies for up to 180 guests in the convenience and comfort of a fully climate-controlled white chapel. Providing more than 5,000 square feet in the Reception Barn, and centered around a massive 8ft, 3-tier custom-made iron chandelier (adorned with candles), you have to walk into the venue to believe it. The second floor is home to a 1,200 square foot Bridal Suite that overlooks the main floor. The suite is a comfortable space where a bride literally becomes queen for the day! The conveniences never end with the full caterer’s kitchen, built-in bar, walk-in Cooler, and Groom’s Parlor. Bayou Haven was customized and crafted to make your day the Best Day ever!

A Note from the Owners

Bayou Haven is a family owned venue located in the heart of Central Louisiana. Picturesquely placed on 12+ acres of old grown trees and a beautiful natural landscape and open pond, Bayou Haven creates the ideal setting to make your wedding dreams a reality. With Turkey Bayou running through the property, and our personal experience of the land as our retreat ~ our sanctuary; literally, our haven ~ we named the property Bayou Haven.

Whether you envision your day marrying outside under the wooden arbor by the pond, inside the beautiful French Provincial inspired Barn, or inside our gorgeous new white chapel, Bayou Haven has whatever you need to make your day absolutely perfect! From the moment you step onto the grounds of Bayou Haven, to your magical final exit on the night of your wedding, our team will work tirelessly to make sure every detail of your experience is a fairytale adventure. ~ Carolyn & Sam

Note from the Owner

The Sugar Chateau is a place for people to get married, yes. But we strive to provide much more than that. We attempt to make the weddings we host more of an experience than just a couple saying their nuptials. We want to create a lifetime of memories so our couples and their families have something to look back on for years to come. Our goal is not to recreate the perfect wedding over and over. Our goal is to create the perfect wedding experience for each individual couple.
