I highly recommend the Historic Jasmine Plantation. It's an all-in-one place for the ceremony, reception and overnight stay- including a rain plan! The property is beautifully maintained and they are always making improvements. If you don't want to have to do a lot of decoration, this place is perfect, because it's so beautifully done. I can't say enough great things about it. Book here, and you'll be a happy bride!
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!!
This venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding! My husband and I wanted a venue that was low key and down to earth and fit in our budget and the Jasmine Plantation met all our needs. The owners are fantastic and Kayla the Event Planner was fantastic! The hospitality wereceived was great. We especially liked the plantation because they have a secondary location onsite in case of bad weather for our ceremony. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
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.
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.
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.
Used for the entire weekend. Don the owner was so flexible. We felt like family. We also enjoyed having bride/groom family together.
We used Jasmine Plantation for our full wedding weekend. Our package included use of the property for our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We were even able to have our engagement pictures there. There are TONS of beautiful photo opportunities here! It was wonderful to not have to travel between locations for the weekend for us and our guests, and all the staff was extremely helpful in answering our questions and making sure that our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. The property is absolutely STUNNING and the owners really make you feel special the entire time.
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!
