About Stella Plantation

Located in Braithwaite, Louisiana, Stella Plantation is an event venue suitable for hosting weddings. Couples can hold their ceremony and reception surrounded by 1500 acres of natural landscape. The venue contains a number of covered and uncovered event spaces across the grounds, including the steps of the Spanish-colonial-style house.

Facilities and Capacity

Stella Plantation can accommodate between 25 and 1,000 guests, with a variety of site options available depending on the scale of your celebrations. You and your partner can set up an intimate ceremony beneath a 150-year-old live oak tree with mature branches forming a natural arbor. The entrance to the main residence can also be decorated to reflect your vision for an outdoor gathering. The colonial mansion’s facade features two-story columns, a low-pitched roof, and complete symmetry. Additionally, there are a number of sites on the grounds for receptions, including a covered pavilion which you can embellish to make your own. Side panels can be removed to open the celebrations into the night and the space is climate-controlled to help keep guests cool on hot days. Alternatively, interior barn-style facilities are also available for the reception. A well-appointed guest house with a number of amenities is provided for the wedding party to get ready in.

They can organize a range of unique add-ons, such as a decor package, outdoor games including giant Jenga and Corn Hole, and a photo booth. For a memorable farewell, an additional feature of their service includes an exuberant fireworks display. Furthermore, the venue allows outside vendors so couples can further tailor the experience to meet their requirements. Customizable menu options are available to help ensure that every element of the special day reflects couples’ themes.

    Everything about Stella is perfect and you should absolutely book it for your wedding or event if you are looking for a outdoor/plantation venue. We had out December 9th, 2017 Sangeet event (wedding event 1 for Indian wedding weekends) at Stella and from start to finish we are so happy with how everything turned out.

    Selecting the venue:
    We chose stella on our first visit to New Orleans (we are from New York) in April. Our only concerns were the distance from downtown where our guests were going to be staying, and the backup plan for inclement weather. In the end we decided the place and overall value were worth those risks and booked it!

    Wedding Planning:
    Everything regarding Stella in terms of planning was easy and amazing. From site visits by our vendors, to responsiveness for meetings and calls, to flexibility in last minute changes - Caroline made it very easy for us to plan our big fat indian affair at the plantation. This is particularly amazing \ considering we were out of town and only ever visited the venue twice before the big day!

    The Event:
    This weekend ended up being one of the coldest on record for New Orleans so we had to make some big changes to our layout and fast. With Caroline's help we booked a tent and outdoor heaters to make the beautiful lawn usable in the near freezing temps. During the event Caroline helped to make sure we could close the tent and get the heater in the tent working to make it as comfortable as possible for the majority of the event when people were inside. While we wish we had better weather the wildly unepxected conditions were dealt with wonderfully by Stella and in the end we have no regrets :)

    Thank you so much for making our event so special. Caroline really went above and beyond in every opportunity she could. We only wish we could come back and do it again :)

    I fell in love the moment I arrive to Stella! Being from Arizona this place was to die for, the trees, the grass and the buildings! It was such a pleasure working with Caroline Parrone while planning our wedding. She is so kind and made sure every detail was exactly what we wanted! Stella provides a whole list of vendors they work with and everyone was professional and amazing!!

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Stella Plantation on 9/3/2016, and we cannot say enough about it. The venue was absolutely perfect, multiple guests told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The grounds are stunningly beautiful, and the venue is truly versatile – the staff is able to transform it to become your dream wedding. The manicured grounds and magnificent oak trees made a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony and pictures. We loved the yard games Stella provided for extra entertainment for the guests. Even the bathrooms are beautiful. Stella Plantation is a hidden gem where we had a wedding better than we could have imagined.
    Caroline was amazing through the entire planning process and even better on the wedding day. She truly cared about us and made sure this day was perfect and special for us. From the beginning she strove to understand who we are and what we care about (good food, good drinks, beautiful scenery and a good time for all of our guests). She had creative ideas for décor, guest favors, and photo ops to make the day extra special for us and our loved ones. She made Stella Plantation and the wedding day “ours,” and went above and beyond to take care of all the little details on the wedding day so we could enjoy the experience (gathering items to send home with us, paying the vendors, gathering cards, providing bug spray, the list goes on). She also understood how stressed I got from planning the details, and made the process simple and easy to take as much stress from me as possible. I really can’t say enough about what an amazing wedding planner she is – she is simply the best. We couldn’t have done it without her.
