Tuesday Testimonial - Jen & Barry

"If you're looking for the perfect wedding venue in New Orleans, you just found it. Seriously. Quit looking, call Stella, and book a date. Then make yourself a drink to celebrate, because you're a genius. We recently got married at Stella this past May and EVERYTHING-- from the service, to the grounds, to the facilities was beyond perfect. It is so rare when what you're imagining while you're planning actually ends up happening, but we had such a great team supporting us with Stella, that the weekend actually exceeded our expectations. We had the added complication of being a couple living in Los Angeles and having ours be a destination wedding, but it never felt that way."

"One of the problems we had when visiting other venues was that you had to buy into what THEIR vision of a wedding should be-- from their vendors to their time limits, to varied access to the property...there were too many specific rules as to what you had to follow, and little freedom to make the day your own. At Stella- this is NOT the case."

"They really want your event- whether it be a wedding, a big party or a corporate event, to really feel special and personal to YOU, and they give you the freedom to make your event exactly how you want. It was really awesome, and at the end of the day, isn't that how you want your wedding to feel? Personal? We know ours did."

A bonus to Stella is that when you rent the property, the entire day is booked for you. There aren't other weddings earlier or later in the day you have to compete with- its just one event per day. Which is awesome, because again, it feels like your own private place, and there aren't tour groups walking around or other randos milling about. Your event feels very private- like a big ol' secret party happening in the middle of nowhere.

The facilities are simply amazing. There's a beautiful house for the bridal party to get ready in, complete with kitchen, makeup vanities, music systems, and a tv, and another house for the groomsmen. And they are HUGE. Its a perfect relaxing way to get ready with the people you love while still being able to make sure that the set-up is going smoothly.

There's also a 60x80 permanent tent, a beautiful permanent bathroom (its ridiculous how nice it is), an on-site pool, a creek... gorgeous old oak trees.... it literally has everything you want." - Jen
