Does anyone know of any places in Shreveport to have a wedding ceremony/reception?

I already know of the Rose Gardens for both. I have heard of the University club and petroleum club for receptions but don't know much about them.

I would like to have the ceremony and reception in the same place if at all possible.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Size has a lot to do with it. If you're going to have a LOT of people (in the hundreds) I can't be of much help. I have a friend who is going through that right now and she's had trouble finding a place big enough.

But if the wedding will be small to medium-sized, I know the Crystal Lake Ballroom downtown does weddings and receptions. I shot a wedding there a couple years ago and I really liked the building. It's located at the corner of Market and Lake Streets off I-20 downtown, across from The Times offices and the Best Western hotel.

LSUS has a ballroom that it rents out for various functions (mainly proms). The Holiday Inn downtown also has a ballroom where we had our fraternity banquets when I was in college. Of course, these places might not really be nice enough for weddings.

Of course you could wait until late July when the river is mostly dry and have a beach wedding on one of the sandbars

The maximum number of people that are coming is 100.

I thought it was called silver lake ballroom. I have seen pictures and it is nice. I am considering setting up an appointment so I can go check it out.

I didn't know LSUS had a ballroom. Were you being sarcastic about doing the wedding on the sandbars? I think that would be kind of cool. Didn't know it was allowed though.

SILVER LAKE Ballroom ... I knew Crystal Lake didn't sound right! I stand corrected.

Sorry, I was being a little sarcastic. I started out by trying to think of some cool outdoor venues, but couldn't think of anything, so I decided to go for the joke instead.

LSUS does have a ballroom. It's on the second floor of the University Center, on the east end of campus.

Now that I think about it, you should also check into the different golf courses around the area. Stonebridge in east Bossier has a pretty nice banquet facility, as does Olde Oaks in south Bossier. I'm sure that the Shreveport country clubs (East Ridge, Southern Trace, Shreveport CC) all have great facilities, but those clubs tend to be more exclusive, so you may have to be a member. You could also check with the Shreveport Yacht Club on Cross Lake. I have only been there a few times, but I seem to remember a banquet hall.
