NEW ORLEANS - (July 21, 2015) - New Orleans' Degas House, former home of French Impressionist Master Edgar Degas, continues to charm wedding parties, garnering national attention as the top place to hold a wedding in Louisiana in the Frommers.com list of "The Best Weddings in All 50 States." The Historic House Museum and Bed and Breakfast is the only home or studio of the artist in the world that is open to the public and features Degas drawings, monotypes, lithographs, etchings, sculptures and reproductions as the scenic backdrop for a wedding.

Frommers.com names Degas House among some of the most prestigious venues in the United States, including the Empire State Building in New York City and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Degas House also ranks alongside some of the nation's most incredible natural formations, including the Grand Canyon and Utah's Zion National Park.
"At Degas House we work tirelessly to make every wedding a truly memorable occasion, and we are proud to be honored among some of the country's finest venues," said Degas House Director and Founder David Villarubia. "The heritage of Degas House paired with its picturesque location on one of New Orleans' most historic avenues makes for an incredible backdrop to any bride and groom's special day."

he designation as Louisiana's top wedding venue follows honors from TheKnot.com's "Best of Weddings" list for 2013, 2014 and 2015.

More information on Frommers.com's "The Best Weddings in All 50 States" and a complete list of winners can be found here.

Degas House, a historic home and inn with a New Orleans-style courtyard, was home to French Impressionist painter Edgar Degas from 1872-1873 while he visited Creole relatives in New Orleans and is the only home or studio of the artist in the world that is open to the public. Degas painted eighteen works while residing in the home, including his first Impressionist painting and the only painting sold to a museum during his lifetime "Portraits in an Office, the New Orleans Cotton Exchange." The mansion now houses a museum, bed and breakfast and venue space, including parlors, gallery space and a French Quarter courtyard with fountains.
