    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 :)
