Sandra Booher
Venue Owner

Master Wedding & Event Planner

Sandra is a natural business leader and mentor. Processes and event organization drive her. Her trademark weddings and soirees have garnered hundreds of 5-star reviews for keeping everything flowing and stressless for all involved.

Sandra capped off a successful career in corporate America as comptroller for major oil companies and law firms, then settled into her current role as founder, hotelier & event planner of the now world-famous Louisiana Cajun Mansion Bed & Breakfast near Lafayette, Louisiana, known for Romantic Getaways.

The Wedding and Event Venue seemed like the perfect transition, and here we are today. Known for “Stress-Free Weddings,” Sandra has built an empire consisting of a team of experienced wedding professionals who all have a role in making this happen for someone’s special day.


Alayna Poirrier

Wedding & Event Planner

Alayna started her career at the Louisiana Cajun Mansion in 2019, and she has filled various roles, eventually promoted to Wedding Planner.

Her real-world experience set a solid foundation for her wedding planning career. Her once part-time after-school job at the Cajun Mansion has developed into a full-time profession helping brides create their special dream day.

Her strengths are her attention to detail and problem-solving. She enjoys helping to design and orchestrate a wedding from the beginning. As such, she helps couples hire vendors, structure and set a timetable for the ceremony and reception, and works with three other teammates to oversee everything on the wedding day.

Alayna says, “Whenever I’m not planning weddings, I travel, hike, and spoil my fur baby named Cleo!”
