Cumberland Plantation is a beautiful plantation nestled in New Kent County. Driving up their driveway takes you back in time to the days of "Gone with the Wind"! Inspired Events by Kelly was the wedding planner for their first wedding last June and we will have another first wedding with all the renovations they have done for their couples in June as well. The Carriage House has been built just for weddings and other special events. This is one venue you must see!!!! We love working with the venue!
