Why Choose Stella Plantation
The summer months bring vacations and “staycations” to the south of Louisiana. Couples stroll the French Quarter or take long walks down the Gulf Coast beaches where love is in the air.
“Will you marry me?” is a question that then often gets asked, followed by “we’re engaged!” selfies hitting social media to happily tell the world.
Stella Plantation loves these happy stories and looks forward to playing a part in this amazing time of your life.
Picking a venue for your wedding day is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. Your venue is not only your wedding backdrop but a focal point in you and your guests memories of a special place where a special event took place. We know that you have plenty of options throughout south Louisiana and beyond to celebrate your nuptials – Stella just might be the right option for you!
Here are a few ways Stella Plantation can make your wedding day nothing less than perfect!
Many brides-to-be breathe a sigh of relief that Stella Plantation offers an exclusive experience. While our grounds have a variety of venues that would allow us to hold multiple weddings and events simultaneously, we truly believe this is the most important day of our couples lives and they deserve to intimately celebrate with those that they love. This is YOUR DAY.
At Stella, we place you and your family front and center to provide a one-of-a-kind exclusive experience.
2. Multiple venues and sizes
Yet, just because we offer an exclusive experience doesn’t mean couples will lack different options and styles. Stella Plantation’s grounds offer multiple venues for you to choose from!
Would you like to be married under the Sloping Oak? Our Sloping Oak sits at the end of our famous 250-year-old Oak Row and dips perfectly to create a unique design element to which you can modify with pieces such as vintage shutters or golden lanterns. Our Oak Row is also the perfect location for setting up your reception under the stars.
Maybe an indoor wedding is more your thing. Our Harold Pavilion is a climate-controlled tent that insures mother nature will not ruin your big day. The permanent tented structure is a blank canvas for couples with styles to present their vision.
Stella Plantation can accommodate any size ceremony or reception. We’ve created smaller spaces such as our Carriage House, an indoor-outdoor space featuring exposed brick and an abundance of character or larger spaces such as new venue, the Sugar Cane Stable. The latest buzz around Stella, the Sugar Cane Stable was built from Stella’s original Sugar Cane barn.
The interior’s versatile design features brick walls, cypress farm tables and iron chandeliers allowing yet another perfect opportunity for you to put your wedding style on display.
3. Award winning guidance
Grand parties or more intimate affairs all share one feature — if you don’t have an expert driving and executing the plan then you may hit some bumps along the road.
Stella Plantation values your time and we consider ourselves lucky to be working with Natasha Kozlowski, our Events Manager. Natasha is an award-winning event manager with over a decade of experience running productions. As you plan your wedding day, you will not only want guidance, but you are going to want someone with the necessary credentials to aid and guide you through the process.
Stella Plantation doesn’t require that you work with certain vendors. That’s why we keep saying it — the day is yours! You will have free reign over which vendors you want to bring in for your wedding day. Natasha can help you along with this selection and, if need be, introduce you to preferred vendors that have worked hand-in-hand with Stella to create some magical moments.
From top to bottom, beginning to end, Stella Plantation has the experience you can rely on.
4. The Beauty
We hate to brag but we think Stella Plantation is beautiful. Its beauty was no accident, either. We have worked hard to build one of the finest venue grounds in the south.
Your guests will be amazed from the first moment they drive up and see our Main House ensconced among the venerable oaks. As day turns to night and the wedding ceremony heads into a reception to remember, you will be surrounded by Stella’s expansive grounds in a time that will be all your own.
Our beauty and skill are just a few reasons Stella Plantation has won “Best Wedding Venue” from The Knot multiple years in a row. Wouldn’t you like to see what we can do for you?
Let us be part of your amazing day – we want to share our plantation with you and make your wedding dreams become a reality. Stella Plantation wants you to look back on your wedding day, smile and say “That was perfect.”
