Judge Nick LaCoste, Jr.
Covington, LA
Officiants

We found our Officiant after my FMIL attended a wedding that he performed & called us right after that ceremony to tell us about him. By the THIRD time she did this, we finally decided to track him down. He doesn't have a website so we had to Google him for a phone number. I kind-of felt like a stalker. We made the arrangements over the phone and that was that. We didn't get to meet the Judge before our ceremony because he had a family medical emergency. However, he did SUCH a good job marrying what amounted to strangers! He was personal, funny, sweet and sincere. What can I say? My mother-in-law was right! I would easily recommend him to a good friend. (He's pretty easy to find online.)

Ceremony & Reception

We live over 600 miles from the Castle and did all of our planning by phone.(I know, I thought I was CRAZY, too!)The biggest chunk of our budget was tied up in our venue but I can wholeheartedly say it was the BEST money we spent!
Dolly was so easy to work with - keeping us on track, giving us honest, HELPFUL advice and she ALWAYS returned our calls. The food was truly delicious (Brisket! Blackened Catfish! Twice-baked Potato Casserole!) The Wedding cake (Vanilla w/ Cream Cheese Buttercream) and the Groom's cake (Chocolate w/ Bavarian Cream filling)were beyond yummy. We way over-ordered cake and had so little left over that our guests actually fought over slices at the next-day brunch. Thankfully, we did not have the problems like the July 2007 wedding reviewed here. I think the Castle has upgraded their indoor & outdoor sound systems since that review was made. I also carefully planned all of our music and was very glad to hear it beautifully played.
Our guests kept telling us how blown away they were with the beauty of the Castle, complimenting the attentive staff and saying how much they LOVED our wedding, how much FUN they were having. Isn't that the best compliment you can have? Even now, 7 months later, our guest are STILL talking about it!
My husband & I did NOT have a "castle" or "fairy-tale" theme, but that's what our wedding day really felt like - true magic.
I can not say enough good things about the Castle, Dolly and her staff!

Hotels/Accommodations

The staff was accomodating, friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, if a little small. There is a morning buffet that's tasty & convienient. Just off of the main road, it's close to everything.
