    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.

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