Originally known in the 18th century as “place d’Armes,” and later renamed in honor of the Battle of New Orleans hero Andrew Jackson, this square is one of the hot spot destinations for tourists in the French Quarter. This historical and epic backdrop provides for a true New Orleans ceremony. Finding privacy in this location is tricky, but if you’re in for a raucous applause at “I do” this location is for you. Please note, there are reservation fees involved through Jackson Square if you intend to have your ceremony within the square itself.

For those of us who are jazz fans, Louis Armstrong Park, a tribute to one of the greats, is a lovely location for a ceremony. Nuzzled steps away from the French Quarter, Armstrong Park has an array of scenic sights, including duck ponds, bronze statues, Congo square and scattered modern art installations. This park has a more contemporary vibe than other New Orleans parks. This is one of the pricier outdoor locations, as you’re booking the entire park for your event.

Pirate Alley is a historical niche folded into the French Quarter. This paved little charm is the culprit of history, lore and rumor, but also makes for a great backdrop for your small elopement. If you're looking to stay in the French Quarter for your elopement, but can't afford the high fees of Jackson Square, Pirate Alley is a great alternative locale.
