I absolutely loved working with the owners who where available to answer all of my questions and let me stop by to show friends and family the plantation. It was one of the best decisions we made to have our ceremony and reception at this location. They are pros at what they doand made the day go smoothly. It is also a GREAT place for photos both inside and out.
We could not have found a more wonderful venue for an outdoor fall wedding than Jasmine. In addition to the perfect sites for the rehearsal, ceremony, pictures, reception, and rehearsal dinner, the house and 7 suites (which we used for the weekend) made it a wonderful location for bringing family together. Don and Eileen are wonderful and attentive hosts, ensuring that we had everything we needed to make this wedding perfect!
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!
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.
The Smiths are so kind and easy to work with. The venue is so affordable, and they're so flexible about doing what you want to do. We go there Friday evening, set everything up, had our rehearsal dinner, stayed the night, got married on Saturday, stayed the night, and they provided us with a beautiful breakfast.
Used for the entire weekend. Don the owner was so flexible. We felt like family. We also enjoyed having bride/groom family together.
Historic Jasmine Plantation provided the perfect, intimate setting for our small outdoor wedding (50 people). Wanting to take advantage of Jasmine's beautiful grounds and have an outdoor wedding, we showed up the day of to a rainy and gray day. The generous owners provided us the use of their large backyard tent for no extra charge and we were just thrilled. We were able to quickly set up for our wedding and relax, and everything was more lovely than I had even imagined.
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!
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.
The owners of the Jasmine Plantation are so kind and so helpful. It is slightly expensive, but if you want an outdoor reception, you can't beat the permanent tent with the brick floor - it gave us no worries. It is a charming place, and they really give you free reign of the grounds for your weekend. My family love spending time together there for the entire time.
