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!
If you are looking for your perfect hidden gem, look no further have your own experience at Stella and it will Be one of a kind.

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 outdoor, southern wedding, this is the place for you!

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 my husband and I both grew up in Plaquemines Parish having our wedding at Stella made the day even more special.

The facilities at Stella are SO convenient. All of the girls were able to get ready in the Guest House before the wedding, while all of the guys were getting ready in the Cook House right next door. Being able to do this made it so much easier! We were able to bring our own food to heat up on the stove and chill our mimosas in the fridge. They have a full table for you to eat, two bathrooms (one with a shower), and a hairdressing/makeup bar as well.

The tent used for the reception is a big open floor, which was great for us since we have a huge family that LOVES to dance! All of our guests were calling us afterwards to tell us how great of a time they had. My husband and I had soooo much fun and wish we could go back and do it all over again!

I highly highly recommend Stella...you won't be disappointed!

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 a beautiful blank canvas for whatever style you want!

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!

If you are looking for the perfect venue in the New Orleans area to have your wedding ceremony and reception at, then Stella Plantation is a must visit! You will love the plantation setting. From the moment we stepped onto the property, we knew that this was the location. The staff at Stella Plantation are friendly and make you feel like one of the family. Our wedding was a "destination" wedding for us as we currently live in Florida. After looking at many other venues in the New Orleans area, we immediately decided on Stella. The price for holding our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception was the best around. The other venues made us feel like our "checkbook" wasn't large enough to have an event at their property. Our ceremony was outside under the 250 years old canopy of Oak Trees. Then we had a cocktail hour around the pool area with hor d'uerves served by the caterers. Then the festivities moved to the climate controled semi-permament tent on the Stella grounds. The tent was a wonderful blank canvas that allowed us to create the look and feel of our reception that we wanted. The caterers for Stella Plantation were great. All of the food offered/served was top notch. All of the food was cooked fresh on the property and was delicious. Even weeks after our wedding, we are still getting emails and phone calls about what a wonderful wedding it was. Stella Planation was so beautiful and perfect that we wish we could do it again and again!

When I saw the ad for Stella Plantation in the N.O.W. magazine I just knew that this was the place! My husband and I wanted a classy but rustic venue and we fell in love with Stella Plantation. The staff is great and very easy to work with. Krystle was very helpful, organized, and easy to get in touch with. She made the whole wedding planning experience pleasant. Our ceremony was offsite at a church and we had our reception at Stella. Everyone raved about the food! We ate leftovers for a couple of days afterwards!
