Our daughters wedding & reception was held at Ormond Plantation. It was more then we could hope for! As we were lining up, it started raining. We were giving the option to move the ceremony or to wait a few minutes for the rain to stop. As soon as it stopped raining, the staff dried all chairs and the ceremony started. Everything was great! Our family stayed at the Plantation & Cheif Richard prepared breakfast. Thank You to Robin, Peggy & Cheif Richard as well as the entire staff that made this possible.Sent on 09/20/2017

My husband and I got married here 2 months ago today! Ceremony and reception were absolutely beautiful. We also did our engagement photos and post-bridal photos at this beautiful plantation! Would recommend to anyone! Food was delicious and was served until the very end of my reception. The staff was great and very responsive to not only mine and my husbands needs but also to all of our guests! I just wish that I would have spent even more time here!Sent on 12/04/2014

My husband and I held our ceremony and reception at Ormond Plantation and it was absolutely fabulous! Mrs. Robin Priest, Chef Richard Kiral and staff were amazing, paying attention to every detail, quality food and service, and most importantly, that wonderful Southern hospitality. In choosing a venue, my fiance and his family were from up North and being that I was born and raised in the area, I wanted something that would impress us locals, as well as, really be intriguing, historical, and beautiful to our guests. All in attendance, both local and visitors commented so positively on the venue, food, and service. Everyone enjoyed every aspect from our event and I could not have asked for a better wedding! Cheers to Ormond Plantation in being everything I imagined and more! THANK YOU!Sent on 05/13/2014
