A piece of VA heaven
My fiancé and I looked all over the eastern seaboard for the "perfect venue". I was beginning to think it didn't exist until I stumbled upon a photo of wedding guests in a beautiful garden and these perfectly arched crape myrtles that created the aesthetic of an outdoor church. We made an appointment, met with Rita, and fell in love instantly. Truthfully we never wanted to leave. The venue is the perfect amount of virginia history, garden party, with the ability to create upscale elegance that someone could hope for. Our wedding was magic, with the venue providing all the necessary inspiration. The contract seemed fairly common sense, the price reasonable for the blank canvas of the outdoor setting, and the staff were great to work with. Rita was probably the fastest to respond of everyone I worked with for the entire wedding, which was always reassuring. It was convenient for guests to downtown Richmond (we were destination) and left everyone speechless. If we could do it all over again we would! Thanks again guys!!Sent on 01/09/2019

We liked how charming and quaint Tuckahoe Plantation was. A hidden gem in Virginia and there were so many corners of the grounds to explore.
With working weddings myself, was drawn to the natural light of being outdoors. We fell in love with the grounds at Tuckahoe Plantation. We definitely knew that we wanted our dog, Bear to be part of the special day. With it being a pet friendly venue, it was certainly a right choice!
We strived to create an intimate and warm vibe with the ceremony nested behind the gardens between natural arches of trees to long al fresco tables during dinner located right next to the historic home of Thomas Jefferson.

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.Sent on 10/10/2016
Bonnie also recommended a suite of other vendors, most of which we used. They are dedicated to quality, and it shows big time!
