What is your favorite thing about events at Stella Plantation: "My favorite thing about events at Stella Plantation is the ease of everything. From start to finish, everything is so organized. We have never delivered to Stella and had it not be set up and ready for us. Caroline is the sweetest, most put together event coordinator to work with. She really takes care of everything. The location itself is stunning and the attention to detail is phenomenal. We fell in love with Stella, so much so, that we chose it for my daughter’s wedding. Everything was story book perfect, and we couldn’t have chosen a better venue! "
