House of Broel The House of Broel’s Victorian Mansion and Gardens, located on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, offers old world elegance combined with new world charm for those hosting Simchas in New Orleans. Located at the “Gateway to the Garden District,” the House of Broel is lovingly restored to its 19th century splendor, with at atmosphere created by rare antiques, crystal chandeliers and fragrant flowers. The courtyard features a columned pavilion, pond and waterfall for outdoor garden ceremonies. The menu for celebrations offers a nice selection of Creole delicacies with both a hot and a cold buffet. They are happy to also design a kosher-style custom menu. Guests and hosts can also enjoy a tour of the house and learn about its history. There is also a world-renowned Dollhouse Museum on the second floor that welcomes visitors. Bonnie Broel started out by making custom dresses. After having a small store nearby, she bought the mansion which had been neglected. After having her wedding and reception there in 1980, she decided to open the first floor to clients who wanted that same type of atmosphere for their celebrations.

Terry Cambise Wedding and Event Consulting Growing up in New Orleans, Terry Cambise loved to host parties, which eventually prepared her for her ultimate event-planning test — planning her own wedding. Years later, while working as a buyer for an upscale bridal boutique, she soon found herself assisting brides with various aspects of their wedding planning. Today Cambise and her experienced team can lead all aspects of wedding and event planning with her Terry Cambise Wedding and Events consulting company. “Our team will bring our extensive knowledge and experience to ensure that every last detail is cared for, providing event hosts with the peace of mind so that they can simply relax and ‘be a guest at their own event’,” said Cambise. “We listen to our clients then tailor and event according to the host’s personality, style and vision.” Over the years, Cambise has planned numerous events for those in the local and regional Jewish communities, including a couple of Jewish weddings late last year. She said she is aware of many customs and traditions with Jewish weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs as well as other events. She said they are happy to coordinate venue selection, budgeting, catering vendor and menu, florist selection, invitations, photographer selection, lighting design, entertainment provider, rehearsal coordination, guest accommodations, transportation and other coordination needs. “Throughout the years, my team and I have established very important relationships with key venues and people throughout the city, which allows our clients to have access to the very best the city offers,” added Cambise. 30 Southern Jewish Life • March 2015
