Stella Plantation's Instagram Top 9

Sneak Peeks!

We love a good sneak peek and it looks like you do too! Three of our top nine are sneak peeks. We can't WAIT to show you the real weddings that are associated with each one.


Reception under the oaks at Stella Plantation

Our number one photo this year was from Max & Bailey's wedding day. We cannot wait to see the images from Erika Parker Photography. The planning and design from Brooke Casey Weddings was flawless and we loved the creative and gorgeous floral from Antigua Floral. The festoon from Luminous Events sparkled through the 250 year old Oak Trees while the Mixed Nuts kept the dance floor full all night! Here's a little highlight video from Fernando O'Farrill Films.


Our fourth most popular post is a sneak peek from Melissa & Philip's wedding! This is one of those amazing sparkler photos that makes you understand the craze! To complement Melissa's custom leather jacket, we used Morning Glory Sparklers for the moody/smokey look. (Note: Phil's friends' putting out the sparks in Melissa's dress in the bottom left corner of the photo. GULP.) This incredible photo was taken by San Diego-based photographer, By Amy Lynn Photography.

Our 7th most popular post is a sneak peak from Juhi & Rohit's Sangeet night at Stella! Mark Eric Photography captured these two love birds under the Lazy Tree with the Main House peaking out of the backdrop. We cannot WAIT to see the rest of these images and share their amazing love story with you. #roheoandjuhiet Planning by Spanish Oak Events.

Our 3rd most popular Instagram post is from Kat & Frank's wedding day.

The next most popular post is a Boomerang from Dawn & Daryl's wedding. The love birds are members of the amazing 610 Stompers and with fellow members on the guest list, the guys took to the floor to give the bride quite the show!


Erin & Josh's Destination Wedding comes up as the next most popular real wedding. Jay Theroit from Studio Orleans took their epic shots. With a harvest moon on the night of their wedding, he had even more amazing backdrops than normal to work with (and Stella has A LOT of awesome backdrops).

The last 2 photos that make up our nine were a huge surprise to us! The second most popular post was of Oak Row right after a rain storm. The resurrection ivy was looking lush and green and the oaks as majestic as ever. Sometimes the best photos are the ones you snap with your smart phone - amiright?

And to round it all out, the last photo is of our Event Manager, Caroline. We started our "Meet the Team" blog posts and she was up first. It would be an understatement to say that she's so flattered at the warm response the post received. She also thanks HD Photo Booth for making her look good!
