Visit Lake Charles is creating a four-part video series called “Say ‘Yes’ to the Venue” to highlight wedding venues and the process of choosing the perfect wedding venue that suits a couple’s needs. The featured couple will star in the video series and have a prize of $2,500 to go toward the venue or caterer of their choosing.


“Over the past several years, the weddings market has seen some challenges on multiple fronts. However, the staff at Visit Lake Charles is eager to put a spotlight on what the destination can offer to couples looking to tie the knot in the Lake Area,” said Timothy Bush, Chief Marketing Officer for Visit Lake Charles. “The goal of the video series is to showcase the real experience of choosing a venue in Southwest Louisiana and working with Visit Lake Charles and area partners to make dreams come true. We pride ourselves on having joie de vivre, and we want that joy to shine as we work to find the perfect wedding venue for the starring couple.”


Applications will be accepted through Tuesday, Feb. 28. Interested couples must be engaged and have a timeframe in mind for their wedding date.
