If there were 10 stars they would get them!! This venue couldn't have been better in any way. Don and Eileen went above and beyond to make sure our stay and daughters wedding was perfect. We asked some favors from them and they always said, "No problem". The grounds and venue I'm still getting compliments on and I do recommend them but also to stay at the plantation!! It was awesome to stay there and do last minute things like favor boxes with family and friends!!! I can't say enough wonderful things about the Plantation or the owners!!! Fantastic!!!!!
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!
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.
Used for the entire weekend. Don the owner was so flexible. We felt like family. We also enjoyed having bride/groom family together.
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!
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!
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!!
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!
This venue was absolutely perfect! The owners were always available and extremely friendly. The site was setup perfectly and the entire day went off without any issues. I would absolutely recommend this gorgeous plantation to anyone planning their wedding!
