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.
Wow you have to check out Historic Jasmine Plantation. The home and grounds are some of the most well kept in the Greater Richmond Area and they are set in such a Historic area.. You can not beat the value of a trip to New Kent County for your wedding or next event.. .. If you are looking for an awesome venue you definitely need to put the Jasmine on your check list ..
We were looking for a beautiful outdoor venue to have our wedding and after searching in the Northern Virginia area where we lived, we were unsatisfied with the options available given our budget and wants. We expanded our search farther south, which included the Jasmine Plantation and couldn't be happier with our choice. We were walked through the plantation, which includes a permanent covered tent, covered outdoor patio area, gazebos, and a recently added bell tower, among the many beautiful landscape. We loved that Jasmine had no restrictions on vendors AND provided us with a list of preferred vendors to get us started. Anytime I contacted Jasmine, my emails were responded to promptly. A couple of weeks before the wedding, our caterer contacted us requesting to do a site visit with our venue. I hadn't been aware of this and had to contact Jasmine requesting to come visit on very short notice. They said we could come the next day and Don was there greet us and help walk myself and the caterer through any questions we had.
The owners kept out of sight as we did our rehearsal, but we were able to easily call Don's cell phone from the number left in the kitchen of the inn when we needed to that evening. We were also able to use the Magnolia Room for our rehearsal dinner, as well as teapots and tea from the inn that were left out for us. A refrigerator for guests was also available for us, which helped us store a cake for one of the party member's birthday, as well as leftovers from the event. A lovely breakfast spread was laid out for all the parties that had spent the night both Saturday and Sunday and I ran into Don and Eileen walking the grounds setting up for our big day. All the chairs for the ceremony were set up and the tables and chairs for the reception were in place under the covered tent according to the table layout we had picked. Everything was great, thanks so much for everything!
I had my wedding here and it was GORGEOUS! From the first time I visited (8 pm on a rainy Wednesday night) my husband and I fell in love with this place. Don and his staff were very helpful with the decisions and questions we had. The venue is a great place for an outdoor wedding, from the house to the flowers to the pond and gazebo. The pictures you will have of your wedding here are beautiful. We will highly recommend this place to anyone! Make sure to stay there too! They have 7 rooms, all wonderful!
Historic Jasmine Plantation provided the perfect, intimate setting for our small outdoor wedding (50 people). Wanting to take advantage of Jasmine's beautiful grounds and have an outdoor wedding, we showed up the day of to a rainy and gray day. The generous owners provided us the use of their large backyard tent for no extra charge and we were just thrilled. We were able to quickly set up for our wedding and relax, and everything was more lovely than I had even imagined.
The Historic Jasmine Plantation was really the place we always dreamed of holding our wedding at! It is absolutely beautiful and we got many compliments from our guests after the wedding about how beautiful it was. They are very easy to work with and offer a lot of different packages ranging in price, so there is something for everyone. We are so happy we chose the Historic Jasmine Plantation for our wedding venue and loved holding our special day there!
The Jasmine Plantation was wonderful. Don and Eileen are so warm and really give you the whole plantation for the weekend to make your wedding and/or reception a reality.
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.
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!
Everyone loves Jasmine and it's innkeepers, Don & Eileen Smith & family. The manor house and grounds are lovely, statuary and flowers are everywhere, the suites are lavishly appointed with antiques; the whole air of the place is one of peace and relaxation in a pastoral atmosphere. I highly recommend it for weddings or any event.
