Stella Plantation Reviews & Ratings
My wife and I were married recently at Stella Plantation. The venue is a picturesque and gorgeous lined with oak trees, citrus trees, and large fields. The staff is very accommodating and worked with us through difficult schedules and issues. Our wedding was outside by their famous "fallen" oak tree and then went to their event tent for the reception .The venue was spacious and we had many options to decide where to have the ceremony, reception, and even sleeping/lodging options . I loved having the wonderful natural backdrop for our special day and have received many compliments from family and friends on how much they loved the venue and enjoyed the overall experience. Stella was a great place to have our event and I would love to attend other events where I could explore the beauty further. Natasha was very helpful and worked with us through issues and concerns. We would do it all again!
Words can not describe the wonderful experience we had. Your wedding day can be hectic, crazy and overwhelming at times. Stella Plantation, and their staff, made our wedding the most romantic, easy, fun, smooth, beautiful...the list can go on and on. The grounds, the trees, and the history makes this the most memorable and romantic place around. Their staff makes everything so easy and uneventful. Highly recommend!!! Caroline, you are by far the best thing that happened!! You took care of everything and made my life so easy! I LOVE YOU!! You are amazing at what you do. You are a phenomenal person inside and out. I wish you the best!! Miss you already 😊😊
I booked a Glamp experience so my review is only for the Glamp and not the venue rental side. I spoke with the owner and he was very polite and took my suggestions, so I am hopeful to return. Ok here goes, They have great communication with guests and the sell in is awesome BUTTTT the Glamp execution is in need of much adjustment to fully meet the definition of GLAMOUR CAMPING. This location is more of a camp and not really a Glamp. It feels very lonely and unsecure , property needs a GLAMP host on site as it is like 10 mins away from the reception lobby and it lacks lighting. The current lighting IS inadequate and must be improved immediately. There were some necessary creature comforts missing but the physical structure of the A tents is so beautiful!!! This is the highlight of the camp if you are a camper this is your place if you are a glamoer...maybe go visit in November 2019 by then there should be some enhancement of the experience. I left the Glamp feeling sad about not experiencing what I paid for and a bit anxious.
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 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 and me so her attentiveness and willingness to help us with anything and everything was even more appreciated. I highly recommend Stella Plantation as a venue both because of the natural beauty and how well maintained it is, and because Caroline and the staff are absolutely fantastic. As a bride, I felt so comfortable throughout the planning process and was thrilled to see our fairytale vision become a reality.
Overall, we had a stellar experience with Stella - from the venue to the arrangements, from the planning to the service on the day of the wedding. I would recommend the venue whole-heartedly. In our mind, what really elevated the experience was the venue itself and our interactions with Natasha, the wedding coordinator. The venue speaks for itself - they have built out and maintained an excellent property that photographs really well and has every convince thought through.. Natasha's planning and organizing skills took so much pressure off our shoulders. Exactly 30 days before the wedding, Nastaha stepped in and took charge. She was always on top of emails, follow-up, next steps and actions. Her turnaround time on emails was minutes, not even hours. We felt extremely well taken-care-of. We also felt that she was on our side the entire time making sure we got the most "return on experience" - from suggesting venue logistics to handling vendors. She was so thoughtful on the day of the wedding too - by making sure we got to taste our wedding food and making sure we had comfortable shoes for dancing later on. She rocked it and made everything so much more memorable. We also have some constructive feedback for the owners of Stella. The insurance requirements of vendors were a little over-the-top. While it is understandable that you need vendors to be bonded / insured etc on your property, i feel that needing your transportation vendors (who were dropping guests off in their parking lot) to have worker's comp of $1M and waivers of subrogation went way overboard. I spend 90% of my job in the legal realm assessing risk etc - while i knew coming in that insurance was expected of vendors, some of these additional clauses caught even me by surprise. That element of surprise and stress honestly took some joy out of our event. Overall though, it was an amazing experience and we have Stella and especially Natasha to thank for. Well done!
