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!
Don and Eileen, the innkeepers, were wonderful to work with for the entire year leading up to the "Fall in Love" theme wedding on 10/23/10. The weather was perfect, the venue for the whole weekend was perfect as was the yummy breakfast on Sunday morning for the wedding party. The innkeepers were behind the scene workers, but were always available for whatever help was needed. There have been so many positive comments received by mail, phone, Facebook and email. Everyone enjoyed a lovely afternoon and evening. Most of the compliments were about the joy and love in the air felt by all that attended--for Ashley and Greg in the most festive and beautiful setting. Some have even said that this was the most fun wedding ever, bar none!
Don and Eileen were amazing to work with and Jasmine Plantation is the perfect wedding venue! The owners were always quick to respond to any questions we had and even helped us get a hold of another vendor on our wedding day that we were having some slight issues with. They really do mean it when the plantation is yours for the weekend, they set up whatever you need and you may see them for a few minutes during that time but other than that they keep to themselves and just let us enjoy our time there. I also love the fact that their son also took some pictures, they turned out great and we got to see pictures before we got ours back from our photographer! Our families/friends loved their stay during our wedding weekend and we highly recommend Jasmine Plantation!!
I couldn't believe my luck when I found this venue! I located their website the night before I signed with someone else, and couldn't have found a more perfect location for our wedding! It had the feel we wanted, and was flexible with special requests we had for our event. We were able to have the privacy of the whole plantation for our family and guests from the day before the wedding (Friday) until check out on Sunday. The homemade breakfast on the wedding day was amazing! The egg scramble was delicious! Don and his wife were friendly, professional, and accomodating - you can't find better hosts, especially at the more than reasonable price they offer for their services! Thank you, Don and Eileen, for your hospitality and opening up your beautiful property to us for our special day!
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!
Don and Eileen at Jasmine are absolutely amazing. They're the nicest, most accommodating people that I know and hands down beat all the other people I dealt with at other venues. This place really gives you the most bang for your buck. It was absolutely worth every penny. All my guests raved about how beautiful the place was. It really was everything I dreamed of and more! Boom now! It fills up quickly!
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.
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.
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!!
My daughter's wedding was held at Jasmine Plantation on 5/24/14. This was the most beautiful place to have a wedding and reception. Don & Eileen Smith, Ashton Smith and Kayla Arnold were the nicest and most accommodating folks I've ever worked with. The Plantation House was amazing! It was so inviting. Also, very clean. The grounds are spectacular! Beautiful gardens, statues and lighting are every where you turn. The reception was held in the big tent behind the house. It couldn't have been more perfect. You can tell that the owners love the Plantation by what they do to keep it such a showcase. If anyone is looking for a venue for their wedding, please contact the great folks at Jasmine. You won't be sorry!
