The Reception Venue With Balconies
The large wrap around porches and rear balconies give our guests the option to use these areas as they see fit. Couples love the fact that we have room on the upper level to set up tables and chairs or make extra room for intimate dinner settings and photo opportunists. Brides love the panoramic view our upper level rear balcony allowing friends and family to get away from the party that’s going on downstairs, for a more intimate area to talk and catch up on old times. Our rear balcony overlooks the back yard and patio and will hold an additional 20-40 people. A set of double doors separates the bride and bride’s maid’s changing area from both front and rear balconies while they prepare for the ceremony assuring convenience and privacy. Albany Plantation is one of the only wedding venues in Hammond with large front and rear balconies. Our rear balcony at the plantation allows you to make a grand entrance to your ceremony. Whether your ceremony or reception is outdoors or indoors your guests will surely be impressed. For an indoor ceremony you have two options to make your entrance, from our indoor steps leading from the upper level or from our rear balcony which is accessible by steps to the ground floor. If you want a location away from the house it’s no problem for the staff to move the arbor to your desired location. In months with mild weather we can accommodate parties up to 300 at our outdoor venue, if the couple is willing to secure wedding tents. Tent rental is required for large gatherings in case the weather turns south and becomes an issue. Last year, we also renovated the bottom floor of the plantation and installed a beautiful ceiling to floor glass wall adding square footage to our reception venue. Making the addition not only an extra room but doubling as an area for you caterer to set up the gourmet dishes.
Albany Plantation’s Barn
One building we are definitely proud of is our Barn, we hope to be outfitting it in the near future with an old fashioned sawdust floor, in hopes of adding it as an additional ceremony and reception location on the property. Our rustic barn is located on a beautiful acre on the grounds; set back away the plantation the pictures it offers are amazing. Surrounded by a tree line on one side and beautiful livestock on the other, it is an unparalleled natural setting. In the spring, all sorts of flowers and day lilies shoot from the turf, to complement the oaks and pines in the forest. We hope in the near future that the barn will be a favorite place for informal gatherings including, small intimate weddings and wedding receptions, banquets, meetings, family reunions, and small catered events.
