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.
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.
Have booked our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception at this site. The owners and even coordinator have been nothing but extremely helpful and professional with the whole process so far. Have complete vendor flexibility, and the site is absolutely GORGEOUS (the tent is STUNNING!!!). Grounds are very well kept and there are LOTS of places on the grounds for photos!!
They'll even let you do all your engagement photography there prior to the wedding as long as you give them advanced notice - for NO EXTRA CHARGE!!!
So excited to have our special day take place here!!!!
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!!
Used for the entire weekend. Don the owner was so flexible. We felt like family. We also enjoyed having bride/groom family together.
