The Cambre House is the ideal place to hold your outdoor wedding. With two outdoor lawns, one in the front of the house and one in the back of the house, you can decide where to hold your wedding and your reception. The space can be used however you wish to make your wedding day memorable.
Have your wedding in the backyard that sits on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, and then take your guests out to the front lawn for a reception. Or have your wedding in the front of the house, and invite your guests to the backyard for the reception. The 20 x 40 foot concrete patio on the back lawn, which is complete with electrical outlets, is a perfect spot for catering or music. Our small barn has inside space for 30 people for an intimate gathering.
We provide a double washtub that can be used for drinks, or we have smaller round metal washtubs too.
We have several wedding packages so pick one that suits your needs for your special day.
