About Kent Plantation House

Kent Plantation House is a farmyard wedding venue in Alexandria, Louisiana. The location offers an outdoor ceremony space and indoor reception area for holding celebrations. Couples can take advantage of a range of modern amenities to host a successful and memorable event.

Facilities and Capacity

Kent Plantation House was constructed in the late 18th century and has retained many of its original rooms and features. The exterior of the building reflects French-colonial style, displaying a raised structure, steeply pitched roof, and a number of windows and openings. The site offers an outdoor setting for the ceremony to the rear of the main residence surrounded by several outbuildings. Furthermore, the venue can provide white chairs for guests for the duration of the service. After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their loved ones can move into the visitors’ center for the reception. Characterized by exposed wooden beams, the facility can be tailored to reflect each couple's vision and style. The center has a capacity for up to 150 guests, and tables and chairs can be supplied for a banquet meal. Alternatively, a tented outdoor reception can be arranged on the grounds. In addition to the ceremony site and event center, couples who choose to rent this location for their big day can also use outbuilding porches. Furthermore, a prep kitchen is available for their preferred catering staff.

Services Offered

The team at this farmyard estate can accommodate a number of events in the leadup to your big day, such as engagement parties and showers. Additionally, tables and chairs for the festivities are included in the rental fee. Couples can remain in touch with loved ones who couldn’t make it to the celebrations throughout the day, as wireless internet is available on-site. For an added feeling of reassurance while anticipating this momentous occasion, the venue also has liability insurance.

Location

The estate is located less than 15 minutes from Alexandria International Airport, making it a suitable choice for those with guests traveling from further away. Parking is available on-site, promoting even more ease of access. Furthermore, there are a number of hotels situated less than 10 minutes from the grounds. As an additional feature of the venue’s location, those with a love for nature can make an excursion to the nearby Alexandria Zoological Park.

    It was really beautiful and the venue did accomodate a large amount of people - around 250. However, the lighting was hard to set up and it got very dark after 7pm. It was gorgeous, though, and I don't regret having the wedding and reception there!
