Rustic, charming and trendy - three ideal looks that may not have gone together a few years back, especially for a wedding. Traditionally you would think - elegant, romantic and timeless. While the traditional wedding theme will surely never go out of style – the barn and country themed weddings are all the rage throughout the South right now and Stella is now a part of the mix.
Something Borrow AND Something New
The newest venue at Stella Plantation is the Sugar Cane Stable. This original structure was built from Stella’s original sugar barn. Though it is technically the oldest venue to the property, the new renovations give the stable a fresh and unique look. The exterior wood and two stunning window lined wings will draw your guests into your celebration for a modern and countryside affair. Once inside, the view out of the massive windows of Stella’s landscape and the Southern Louisiana skies, both day and night, will take you guests’ breath away. You guests can relax on the custom wooden x-back chairs, special to this venue space at Stella. The concrete patio and back lounge provide more private areas for those guests who don’t want to be in the center of the action but still enjoy the venue and the people. The interior space includes brick walls, custom made cypress farm tables, iron chandeliers and copper lanterns – give yourself a break from the tons of design planning for your big day, because the Sugar Cane Stable speaks for itself! The simple but versatile design gives you plenty of opportunity to make the space your own or keep it simple and elegant.
A Space Like No Other
This new venue to Stella may be unique to the other three spots, but it is just as versatile. With a central reception area right when you walk in, your guests will be encouraged to immediately hit the dance floor, comfortably with up to 200 guests. Everyone knows the dance floor is one of the most important parts of a good party! Get your glow sticks ready, set up a photo booth and enjoy the excitement. Anyone who needs a break from the dance floor madness can find seating located to the two sides of the central reception area. There is even a lounging area that grandma and grandpa can take a breather at. Not to mention the outside patio area, where you can get away from the noisy mingling and really enjoy the beautiful outdoor scenery of Stella. If you would like to have a more formal affair, theatre style seating can fit up to 200 guests or permanent seating in the reception area can fit comfortably 100 guests.
Décor for Sure
Rustic wedding decorations are the way to go – you can create your own look, make everything feel more personal, homey, and natural. Speaking of natural - The custom cypress farm tables are actually constructed from the cypress trees located on the plantation - doesn't get much more authentic than that!
The best part planning the decorations is how much fun you will have creating your perfect image for your big day. Use items from your own home or go outside and find some earth friendly southern décor. From cotton, twine, flowers, fruits, mason jars, bird cages – the options are endless, and EVERYTHING will fit in with the Sugar Cane Stable’s look. You can really play up the space however you’d like. Even take advantage of decorating the outside area. Add to the already stunning landscape view with hay bales for rustic seating. Light up the space with some outdoor lanterns – bonus, use those lanterns to keep the bugs away too! Add a few benches or find the perfect outdoors tables runners – you can never go wrong with burlap! There is plenty of room to set up lawn games for your young guests and the young at heart. From bag toss to outdoor Jenga or checkers, you can get as creative as you’d like in the spacious outdoor area of the Sugar Cane Stable.
