Due to an unexpected change in our wedding date and location, we were very nervous about finding a place to host our wedding with such short notice. We literally only had 2 months to plan from scratch. BUT, by God's grace, we found the Historic Jasmine Plantation! We set up an appointment with Don and Ashley and fell in love with this gorgeous plantation on the spot. Don and Ashley not only went above and beyond to not only work with our rushed planning, but made the planning process stress-free by offering help with everything including vendors. Our wedding was on January 6th, 2018 and we all can recall that was the weekend of Richmond's historic snow storm and record low temperatures. It was below 0 for most of our wedding weekend, but the staff at the Jasmine made sure our wedding did not suffer due to mother nature! They did EVERYTHING within their power to make our day the most loving, romantic and happy event of our lives. They worked around the clock to remove ice/snow, make our guests comfortable and ensure my husband and I had everything we needed. All in all, we were 1000% satisfied! If you are planning a wedding in the Richmond/Williamsburg area...PLEASE check out this beautiful venue. Whether you are planning a pretty spring/summer wedding or a wedding in the dead of winter like mine...the Jasmine will ensure your day is the best of your lives. Thank you, Jasmine Plantation!!
From the moment we stepped on the property, we fell in love!! The grounds are breathtaking and the house is spectacular! The owners were very accommodating with everything from allowing as many visits as we needed to organize our plans, to making suggestions on our seating chart! We were able to stay in the house the night after our wedding with our bridal party and it really made our wedding night last as long as possible.
After dating for 11 years picking the right venue was huge for us and The Historic Jasmine Plantation could not have hit the mark better! I would highly suggest this venue to anyone looking for an amazing plantation venue!
This was the best part of my wedding aside from marrying my husband. Beautiful location, wonderful owners that were so helpful, no matter the request. They helped everything to run so smoothly. I couldn't have even dreamed of a better location. We even drove all the way from Mississippi to have this location.
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 my wedding here and it was GORGEOUS! From the first time I visited (8 pm on a rainy Wednesday night) my husband and I fell in love with this place. Don and his staff were very helpful with the decisions and questions we had. The venue is a great place for an outdoor wedding, from the house to the flowers to the pond and gazebo. The pictures you will have of your wedding here are beautiful. We will highly recommend this place to anyone! Make sure to stay there too! They have 7 rooms, all wonderful!
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.
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.
Historic Jasmine Plantation was a wonderful venue for my daughter's wedding on 4-16-16. The grounds are well taken care of and provided a great backdrop for photos, etc. We attended many of their open houses after writing our contract; Eileen (owner) and Melissa were always so helpful. We had the Bed & Breakfast for the entire wedding weekend. That made setup and take down was so much easier because your time wasn't as limited. Don (owner) was always accessible if we needed anything like extra tables. My family greatly enjoyed their stay. We even introduced them to a food vendor that had not worked their venue before, Alpha Pitt Smokers. God provided perfect weather, and Historic Jasmine Plantation gave us the chance to use their beautiful grounds to make the day one to remember!! Thank you all so much!!
Don and Eileen were amazing to work with and Jasmine Plantation is the perfect wedding venue! The owners were always quick to respond to any questions we had and even helped us get a hold of another vendor on our wedding day that we were having some slight issues with. They really do mean it when the plantation is yours for the weekend, they set up whatever you need and you may see them for a few minutes during that time but other than that they keep to themselves and just let us enjoy our time there. I also love the fact that their son also took some pictures, they turned out great and we got to see pictures before we got ours back from our photographer! Our families/friends loved their stay during our wedding weekend and we highly recommend Jasmine Plantation!!
My husband and I absolutely loved this venue! The plantation owners were so kind, flexible, and dedicated to making our wedding everything we desired. The rooms, house, and plantation were beautiful. We had not one complaint! Visit them on facebook to view their gallery!
