  • Wow! Where to even begin. Stella Plantation is absolutely beautiful!! It was so nice to find a setting like this just 45 min from the city, which allowed us to show our guests a completely different side of New Orleans. The event space is amazing and so is the space for the wedding party to get ready beforehand. Caroline, the events manager / planner, is incredible. She is reliable, extremely responsive, and so pleasant! We had so many questions and wanted to do incorporate many unique and nuanced components into our reception and she helped us through each with a smile and a can-do attitude. She has great relationships with several top-notch vendors, so even though you get to have a completely DIY and personalized experience if you wish, you also have so much support and assistance from Caroline and her entire network. One of our vendors backed out at the last minute and Caroline found us a new one (at an even better price) within hours! This was a destination wedding for my husband a... Read more

  • Everything about Stella is perfect and you should absolutely book it for your wedding or event if you are looking for a outdoor/plantation venue. We had out December 9th, 2017 Sangeet event (wedding event 1 for Indian wedding weekends) at Stella and from start to finish we are so happy with how everything turned out. Selecting the venue: We chose stella on our first visit to New Orleans (we are from New York) in April. Our only concerns were the distance from downtown where our guests were going to be staying, and the backup plan for inclement weather. In the end we decided the place and overall value were worth those risks and booked it! Wedding Planning: Everything regarding Stella in terms of planning was easy and amazing. From site visits by our vendors, to responsiveness for meetings and calls, to flexibility in last minute changes - Caroline made it very easy for us to plan our big fat indian affair at the plantation. This is particularly amazing considering we were out... Read more

  • I fell in love the moment I arrive to Stella! Being from Arizona this place was to die for, the trees, the grass and the buildings! It was such a pleasure working with Caroline Parrone while planning our wedding. She is so kind and made sure every detail was exactly what we wanted! Stella provides a whole list of vendors they work with and everyone was professional and amazing!!

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Stella Plantation on 9/3/2016, and we cannot say enough about it. The venue was absolutely perfect, multiple guests told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The grounds are stunningly beautiful, and the venue is truly versatile – the staff is able to transform it to become your dream wedding. The manicured grounds and magnificent oak trees made a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony and pictures. We loved the yard games Stella provided for extra entertainment for the guests. Even the bathrooms are beautiful. Stella Plantation is a hidden gem where we had a wedding better than we could have imagined. Caroline was amazing through the entire planning process and even better on the wedding day. She truly cared about us and made sure this day was perfect and special for us. From the beginning she strove to understand who we are and what we care about (good food, good drinks, beautiful scenery and a good time for all ... Read more

  • We are from out of state and were searching for a venue. We compared Oak Alley, Nottoway and Stella Plantation, and my now husband and I were unanimous about going with Stella as our venue. Not only was it a fraction of the cost.. but we fell in luv with Caroline when we met her. You see, I am very big on customer service-- something I feel is lacking a lot in the industry today, so that was my stipulation when we went to view these venues. I didn't want a venue that was going to "sell" us something we didn't want. I wanted someone who genuinely wanted to host our wedding and make it the best day possible for us. Caroline initially told us that she is from New York (ding ding!), which to me is a flag that means she is a fast-paced worker with a great work ethic (I'm originally from the midwest, so work ethic is very high on my list of musts). She immediately shared with us several ideas for our wedding, ways to save, gave us vendors to vet, and more! We were sold! We could not have mad... Read more

  • I cannot say enough WONDERFUL things about Stella Plantation and Caroline Parrone, the event manager there. My husband and I got married at Stella in March and never once regretted our decision in choosing Stella for our ceremony and reception. For what all you get at this venue, it is a terrific value. First, the grounds are beautiful and provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. Second, the reception tent is very spacious, climate-controlled, and permanent to the property (which is perfect as far as not having to worry about possible rain). Third, they have on-site cottage areas for the bridal party and groomsmen to get ready in day of, which also photograph well. For catering and the bar, we went with Stella's recommended vendor (New Orleans Catering) and it was great. We also went with Stella's recommended fireworks display vendor, which also was great. Beyond just the grounds themselves and recommended vendors, on the day of our ceremony, Caroline went above an... Read more

  • We had our ceremony and reception at Stella on 3/5/16, my husband and I, along with our 175 guests had the most unforgettable, beautiful, fun, romantic and classy outdoor wedding experience. Every single one of our guests has told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. My husband and I, along with most of our guests, are from Illinois, and Caroline Parrone did the most amazing job referring us to vendors, helping us with decisions and providing her wedding coordination services. Stella is even more majestic and beautiful in person than any photo we could find online. Thank you Stella and Caroline for the most beautiful day of our lives

  • We had our ceremony here and everything was beautiful. I had so many guests tell me during and after the wedding how beautiful everything was at Stella. Caroline helped me out so much and was able to work with me on having my dream ceremony there. We picked to have our ceremony underneath the beautiful oak trees during sunset time and the scenery was beautiful. Thank you Stella Plantation and Caroline!

  • Stella Plantation, or what I like to refer to it as, the perfect little hidden gem! The grounds are very magical, you will walk through some of the oldest oak trees surrounded by beauty, so many options Outside or inside, bridal suite, cook house your options are endless. We picked Stella for our big day and we are happy we did, with the help of Caroline (Stella's wedding Coordinator) everything went smoothly- she is so kind and she takes the extra mile to go above and beyond. My husband and I will never forget the magic here on our wedding night, our family and friends were blown away!

  • My mom and I went to 11 different venues before checking out Stella Plantation. I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding with that southern charm, without all the noise from the busy streets. Going to Stella I always had in the back of my mind that it was a little too far out but once I arrived, I knew I had to get married under their oak trees! It wasn't until August that I was introduced to Caroline, Stella's event manager. She was amazing! She is always on top of things, always got back to me quick! Fast forward to my wedding day, it was an 80% chance of rain. I knew I wouldn't get my ceremony under the oak trees. Caroline suggested the Carriage house, instead of the tent, which I loved! It had never been done before. Even through the horrible down pour, Caroline took care of it all. I got many compliments on her and how hard she worked to make the day special for us even with the rain pouring down! Stella did not disappoint and I would HIGHLY recommend them! If you're looking for an o... Read more

  • My expectations of the wedding day were far exceeded! Not only is this such a beautiful and unique venue, but Caroline is seriously the BEST coordinator. She went above and beyond to accommodate us throughout the entire planning process and although I was incredibly indecisive she was still exceptionally patient. She was a tremendous help during the days leading up to the wedding by coordinating with outside vendors, but also the day of the wedding where she was actually out there setting up decor with us. She was easily accessible and always there to answer my questions which made the process so much less stressful than it otherwise could've been. She made sure everything went smoothly and as planned and honestly I didn't have a single worry...the day turned out absolutely perfect! The grounds are perfect for an outdoor ceremony with southern charm, so we knew right away that we wanted our ceremony to take place under the gorgeous oak trees in front of the plantation. Being that... Read more

  • Stella is a such a gem! We are from out of town and did a lot of research on the perfect location for our wedding. The grounds are beautiful with all the oak trees and manicured lawns, and all of the indoor facilities are well-maintained and modern (which was hard to find in all the other 'charming' locations we looked at!). Though it was about 45 minutes outside the city, all of our guests found it well worth the ride when they walked through the oak trees to our ceremony! True southern beauty. Krystle and Caroline and the entire staff made the planning, contracts and setup very easy and pleasant and their caterer was a hit too. I was confident in their ability to handle any situation the day-of and not involve me unless it was absolutely necessary - a trustworthy planning team is a must! Caroline even helped fix my bustle in a moment of need! All hands on deck :) I can't say enough good things about this place! I highly recommend Stella for any of your events; the grounds are...

  • We had our daughters wedding at Stella Plantation on 9/26/15. Although this review is late, everything at Stella was right on time. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, manicured, and everything, very well kept. Rental of The Guest House and The Cook House allowed us the time and ability to actually take it all in. Although this is all true, the most astounding aspect of this experience was dealing with the staff. Caroline Parrone(On Site Coordinator) is awesome. She would go above and beyond to make sure that everything was right. By the time it was over, she seemed more like family. Don't get me wrong, I never like spending money, but this was truly a great experience and I definitely would do it again.

  • I would absolutely recommend Stella Plantation to anyone!! I was recently married there, and I could not have been more happy with how everything turned out!! The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and the venue's event planner, Krystle, made all the difference in the world for me. I was a student writing a thesis while planning my wedding, and if it weren't for all of Krystle's help during the entire process, there's no way I could have had the wedding I will cherish for the rest of my life. It even rained for several days leading up to my wedding, and sprinkled during it, and Stella handled it so well that the rain had no negative effect on the wedding. If anything, it added to the overall ambiance of the day. I'm so grateful I was able to get married at Stella Plantation and have the help of their wonderful staff during that special time in my life!
