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.
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.
Jasmine was the perfect place for an outdoor fall wedding. It has multiple sites for the ceremony, reception, pictures, and rehearsal dinner. With the bridal party staying there for the wedding, it was perfect for getting ready the day of the wedding. Don and Eileen arewonderful hosts. For the whole weekend, we were able to focus on family and friends. After looking at multiple places in the NoVa area, it was far and away the most affordable and friendly. Thanks, Don and Eileen, for making my daughter's wedding weekend perfect!
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!!!!!
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.
