Everything about the Jasmine Plantation was what I had hoped it would be! The owners, Don and Eileen are great! they are so easy to work with, easy to get in touch with, had everything set up for us, cleaned up after us, etc. everything went smoothly, the placed looked beautiful, and everyone was complimenting the location. Staying at the plantation felt like I was at home. They make you feel so comfortable there. All the guests loved it! I couldn't be happier and I would strongly recommended the plantation to anyone planning a wedding!!
I had planned our wedding from Texas and with all of the help that I had received from the Smith family everything had been covered by the time we had arrived in Virginia. The grounds are so beautiful, we were able to get beautiful pictures from just about every angle. The house has so much historic charm. We had rented out the seven suits and with all of our wedding party staying at the plantation lots of wonderful memories were made! Our wedding would not have been such an amazing experience with out the help and hard work from the Smith family! I would not have wanted to work with anyone else for this special occasion!
I was recently married at the Historic Jasmine Plantation 8-16-14, from the 1st moment we saw this beautiful venue last year we knew this was the place. We instantly fell in love with this place, and it met all our needs. Its a great place if you want to have your rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception all in one area. They also Have package that include there 7 beautiful rooms, which come in handy when you have a big bridal party. Don and Kayla are very friendly and will help you out anyway possible. All my questions was answered within 24hours... Also The Jasmine Plantation allows for outside catering which is great!!! If your looking to have beautiful outdoors wedding, and not be worried about anything going wrong then def book with the Jasmine plantation. Don and Kayla will take great care of you, and will looovvveeee how your special day turn out.
We could not have found a more wonderful venue for an outdoor fall wedding than Jasmine. In addition to the perfect sites for the rehearsal, ceremony, pictures, reception, and rehearsal dinner, the house and 7 suites (which we used for the weekend) made it a wonderful location for bringing family together. Don and Eileen are wonderful and attentive hosts, ensuring that we had everything we needed to make this wedding perfect!
One word: BEAUTIFUL. This location is gorgeous, every attendant loved the look of the plantation. Terrific backdrop for pictures in daytime AND nighttime! If I couldn't get a hold of the wedding coordinator then Don the owner would respond promptly. We rented out the entire plantation for the weekend so our wedding party and parents were all together that weekend. The rooms were lovely and many were a good size! The bridal suite is huge which was perfect when all the girls were getting ready (bad lighting for make up though). We felt like we owned the place because we barely saw the owners. Which we liked that it didn't feel like a hotel. It is pricey to rent the plantation; however, any wedding venue it pricey and we were willing to pay the price for this location and to stay for the weekend. Additionally you're on you own the day of, so don't expect the wedding coordinator to assist, unless you pay extra. With that being stated, the prices are all upfront I even had a printed out table of the prices broken down so we knew exactly what we were paying for taxes, the rooms, and the location. Another thing to take into consideration.... there is not much around for rehearsal dinner food. We ordered fried chicken from Foodlion and brought in sides because other than food lion or subway you had to travel at least 30 minutes to get to another place to cater. We have a low maintenance crowd so it worked for us! I would recommend this place, it is truly beautiful and the owners make you feel at home and are amicable to work with, just consider the price as it will likely be a large portion of any budget.
Don and Eileen were a pleasure to work with. Jasmine was the first and only place we looked for a venue and quickly fell in love. The price is amazing and scenery is perfect. They were quick to respond to all questions and helped us GREATLY along the way.
Used for the entire weekend. Don the owner was so flexible. We felt like family. We also enjoyed having bride/groom family together.
My bride and I had our wedding ceremony and reception here on a Sunday in October. It was beautiful and I am so glad the weather permitted for a nice outside wedding. If it had rain, they do provide an area to have the ceremony as well. The inside of the house is really nice and rustic looking as well. We didn't stay overnight, but I imagine it would have been nice too. The home owners were AWESOME! They replied back with information promptly and during the wedding day and anytime we came to visit or set up, they stayed back and provided any assistance we may have needed. The reception area was just as wonderful as the ceremony area. There was a tent in the back that fit well over the 100 guests we had. The price was well under the budget we were looking at. The venue provides a list of caterers you may use, but you are welcome to use whom ever as long as you let them know. When the venue gets dark, their are gorgeous lights set up all around the venue with terrific places to take pictures before and after dark. At the end of the reception, we were allowed to use sparklers for the guest to light our way out which was beautiful as well. I could not have had a better experience here and I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who is looking around the area for an outside wedding.
This Plantation was absolutely gorgeous. The gardens, statues, and bridge over the pond made for the most beautiful Wedding Ceremony I could have every imagined. The reception tent was also just as wonderful. It already had strung lights and a chandelier that was hung so elegantly, we couldn't wait to dance the night away. The owners were very inviting and helpful in making our day as special as it could be. I definitely recommend this venue to any and all! Affordable, lovely, and already set up for you!
I am from Florida and my Husband is from New York. When we moved to Virginia, we had no idea where to have our ending. Lucky for us, we found Don and Elieen at Jasmine Plantation through the internet. They welcomed us into their home immediately. We rented the plantation for the weekend and it was the best money we ever spent!!
