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.
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!
I couldn't believe my luck when I found this venue! I located their website the night before I signed with someone else, and couldn't have found a more perfect location for our wedding! It had the feel we wanted, and was flexible with special requests we had for our event. We were able to have the privacy of the whole plantation for our family and guests from the day before the wedding (Friday) until check out on Sunday. The homemade breakfast on the wedding day was amazing! The egg scramble was delicious! Don and his wife were friendly, professional, and accomodating - you can't find better hosts, especially at the more than reasonable price they offer for their services! Thank you, Don and Eileen, for your hospitality and opening up your beautiful property to us for our special day!
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!!!!!
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!
