How Will Grandma Get There? Shreveport Regional Airport is approximately 40 minutes from Benton and a 5 hour drive from New Orleans. For lodging, Saint Terre works with nearby hotels to offer discounted rates and room blocks. Most hotels are 3-star chains (like SpringHill Suites) that are about a 30 minute drive from the venue in Shreveport.
Party On! Couples and their guests can stay as late as they like, but the DJ will provide entertainment and the bar will be open for only 4 hours immediately following the ceremony.
Important Note: No outside vendors allowed
