About Bowing Oaks Plantation

Bowing Oaks Plantation is a Jacksonville-based venue that combines rustic charm with a modern flair. It’s a prime location for ceremonies, engagement dinners, receptions and rehearsal dinners. It's a popular venue year-round.

Facilities and Capacity

Although the focal point is a country barn, Bowing Oaks Plantation offers modern upgrades, making things convenient for you and your loved ones. The 6,000 square-foot facility contains handicap-accessible restrooms, two large dressing areas for the wedding party to use between events and a large kitchen, suitable for a caterer. DJs and other entertainment vendors must play inside the venue; electrical power is available. The ballroom accommodates up to 200 people, is climate-controlled and overall has a rustic yet elegant appearance. There also are two outdoor ceremony sites: the “I do” oak and the covered pavilion; both options, getting married under oak trees and getting married in a more formal setting, may accommodate up to 200 guests.

Services Offered

Tables and chairs are covered under the packages offered, making them two things you don’t have to worry about. The staff can make recommendations on linen vendors, and they require that you use one of their approved wedding coordinators and get liability insurance. A one-hour rehearsal is covered in the venue cost.

Cuisine

Only approved caterers and bartenders are to be used; if you use one of their recommended insured and licensed bartenders, you may bring your own alcohol (just no kegs, and there’s a no-shot policy).

History

From the 19th through the early part of the 20th century, Bayard (the historic site where the plantation sits) was a tourist hotspot. Given that it was between St. Augustine and Jacksonville, the spots in Bayard were a hit with those traveling through; the plantation continues to be a welcoming site of stellar hospitality.

Location

Bowing Oaks Plantation is set on five acres of land. Thus, there are many prime locations to snap photos. As for your send-off, the staff knows you want to go out on a high note; however, the following items are the only ones that may be used for the send-off:

  • Rose petals
  • Lavender
  • Glowsticks

    This was a great venue! It rained but it made it more magical with the lights outside and the clear umbrellas. Everyone loved this rustic/elegance feel of the venue. We loved having our wedding here!

    Beautiful, easy to work with, prime spot

    Bowing oaks is absolute perfection. My biggest things were to have enough room for a lot of guests, the ceremony under oak trees, big bridal and groom suites, near hotels and a rustic but elegant style. Bowing filled all needs and more!! We looked here first and immediately fell in love. Heather was amazing and always answered any questions I had. I highly recommend this venue for anyone and for any event.
