History
Architectural historians consider Tuckahoe Plantation to be among the finest early-18th-century American plantation homes. First built in between 1730 and 1740 by the Randolph family, the house has a unique H-frame construction thanks to the north end and south wing being built at different times. Sadly, the Randolphs died in 1745 leaving their children to the care of their good friend, Peter Jefferson and cousin Jane Randolph Jefferson. Peter, Jane, and their children, including two-year-old Thomas, moved into the home and stayed until 1752. During this time, Thomas Jefferson spent his youth at the home, receiving his early education in the small one-room school house.

    Tuckahoe is the DREAM outdoor, historic location. Bonnie and her team are total professionals, dedicated to making sure every wedding is exactly what the couple envisions. We worked together to meet on both the creative vision and budget goals that we had for our wedding. The team is able to accommodate weddings of all sizes and scales, without sacrificing quality. There was a lot of communication leading up to the wedding, and I felt complete confidence in their ability to bring my vision to life. The wedding was beyond my wildest dreams, and I am still getting people saying it was the most beautiful venue they'd ever been to.

    Bonnie also recommended a suite of other vendors, most of which we used. They are dedicated to quality, and it shows big time!

    This was a gorgeous spot for my wedding ceremony. All the guests loved it and said it was the most beautiful garden wedding they'd ever been to. I have nothing but good things to say. I just wish I'd had my reception there too!
