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!!
The owners and new event coordinator did an excellent job of being flexible and accommodating. We had a wonderful experience and could not have had a better wedding. Would recommend this venue to anybody looking for a plantation 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!
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.
This was a beautiful venue for my June wedding. The owners were amazing in making my day special and flawless. The garden is gorgeous and so is the house. There was plenty of room for my over a hundred guest list and my family even stayed the night and enjoyed breakfast the next morning. I can't wait to renew my vows and enjoy this place again!
The venue is beautiful and everyone loved it. The flowers were just blooming, and the weather was perfect. People had ample places to take beautiful pictures, and eat, and dance, and sit. And the Smiths are he nicest people ever, and put out a delicious breakfast Sunday morning. It was really nice being able to set everything up on Friday, stay the night Friday and Saturday, and leave Sunday morning after a lovely rest.
Having both the ceremony and the reception in the same location, the permanent tent available and being able to stay overnight at the bed & breakfast were all great assets and icing on a phenomenal wedding!
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.
Jasmine Plantation could not have been a better pick for us as our wedding location for a spring wedding. The grounds are beautiful, the house is charming. The overall feel of the place is welcoming. The guests adored it. We had a blast staying overnight with our friends! Eileen and her family are the perfect hosts. It could not have been more perfect!!
The Inn Keepers at Jasmine, Don and Eileen are wonderful. Very professional and helpful to work with. They were willing to answer any questions we had and provided two wonderful breakfasts for us whom were staying at the Inn for Saturday morning and Sunday morning. We could not have asked for a more beautiful place to be married and hold our reception at.
