Brooke has spent the last five years in the wedding industry. From working for a luxury lighting and candle decor company to one of the premier wedding venues in New Orleans, she has developed a well rounded skill set that helped her create her own business planning weddings. She values the client experience. To Brooke, this isn’t just a business transaction but one of the most important days of your life. You may start as a client but you become family.
What piece of advice do you give to couples getting married at Stella:
"Hire a planner! Kidding, kind of. Take the time to enjoy the day and allow your family and close friends to do the same. That’s what this is really all about. You plan for months, find the perfect dress, the perfect venue, the perfect design team, now enjoy it! Let someone handle all of the details so that you can make memories with those special people that are standing around the altar with you."
Tell us something you enjoy about events/weddings at Stella.
"It’s a combination of working with Caroline, the avenue of oak trees, and the endless opportunities to customize your event. When you first arrive at Stella, Caroline greets you with the biggest smile, then the oak trees take your breath away, and finally you find out you can basically get married wherever and however you want on this stunning property."
"I would say that 'we have to leave' but now Stella offers the Plantation to their guests for the weekend if they choose to book the weekend package so that’s not an issue. Is there a package where the vendors can book the Plantation for the weekend? If so, I’m all in!"
From a Friendor (Vendor Friend) - Aaron Lane of Aaron Lane Entertainment says: "Brooke is so skilled and talented at keeping everything for each event on track. She's organized and thorough so every detail is covered and there are no surprises. And, she's so nice and fun to work with!"
From Stella's Event Manager - Caroline says: "Brooke is genuine, creative, organized and kind. Her weddings are elegant and beautiful but also full of fun. She is always willing to help her fellow vendors with a recommendation or great idea. Her brides are calm and relaxed, knowing they are in the very best of hands. She thinks of EVERY detail and her execution is flawless. Plus she has one of the best timelines I've ever seen (and you know how I love a great timeline)! We absolutely love working with Brooke Casey Weddings at Stella!"
From our Stella Brides:"Brooke was amazing. As a bride from out of town, I wanted someone on the ground that had all the expertise and connections to pick all the right vendors, and someone who could also envision my ideas with little direction and execute them within my budget. Brooke was all of that and more! Above all, she was easy to work with - super flexible and accommodating, but always had a (respectful) point-of-view which was helpful when making so many decisions in a short time. One thing I was nervous about was our communication, me being in NY and working long hours, Brooke being in New Orleans. But Brooke was easy to get a hold of and worked with my schedule - we mostly communicated over email and text which was perfect for me! After meeting in person and several pinterest board updates, Brooke really understood my style and was able to suggest ideas to make our weekend even more special. She also is very well connected and was able to suggest great vendors that were right up our alley - everyone worked seamlessly together much to Brooke's credit. She also smoothly coordinated our big day that I just sat back and enjoyed every minute! I highly recommend Brooke for your big day or any event! Totally worth it!" - Myra
