Absolutely perfect. Serene and magical. I was the bride and originally chose to have my wedding here at the old "Nicholson Farmhouse" because my in-laws were Nicholsons so it had a lot of sentimental value for them. When we got to the White Dog Plantation, which has been redone into a beautiful bed and breakfast, we were shocked. It was PERFECT. The bed and breakfast rooms were stunning!! The French furniture and décor in every single room is jaw-dropping. Everything was vintage-esque and all my dreams of having a vintage plantation wedding became reality. This is a MUST LOOK location. There is no cell-phone service at the location if you have AT&T. Apparently Verizon works well. I was sending my bridesmaids outside to make phone calls, but that forced me to relax and not be glued to my phone on a day that would have been so easily chaotic on its own. We chose to spend the night the night before as well with the bridesmaids in the Patrick's Store. I HIGHLY recommend this for bridal parties! There is an upstairs and downstairs in this set-up and it was so nice to relax the day before the wedding. We had hair and make-up come to the venue and it all pieced together beautifully. Waking up there was almost indescribable. It was so quiet and peaceful. My family stayed there and they are TOUGH critics and they had nothing but wonderful things to say. The venue is large and perfect. Lynn (the owner) was wonderful to work with and so accommodating. There was no fuss or trouble afterwards. There are options to clean up yourself or have the staff clean up for a fee. Also, the photo opportunities are endless! Overall, amazing. I felt like I had been transported to the early 1900s Florida and did not want to come back to the present hustle and bustle! Thank you for making my wedding a dream come true!Sent on 09/15/2014
