The perfect venue with incredible staff!
The Plantation on Sunnybrook was the perfect all-inclusive venue for our wedding. From the time of booking with Larami as our wedding coordinator (1.5 years in advance) through the end of the wedding itself, we loved working with them.Sent on 05/21/2019
The venue has many options to make wedding planning easier. They catered our wedding and made beautiful flower arrangements. Regarding the food, our guests were raving about the quality and variety of the buffet that they provided for us.
Larami and the rest of the staff were very professional, courteous, and helpful. When my wedding cake was botched by an outside baker, they fixed it right away, and it looked beautiful (thanks to them!). I cannot say enough good things about everyone. I would absolutely recommend taking advantage of the Plantation on Sunnybrook and all of the options they offer!

Our Wedding Was More Perfect Than We Could’ve Ever Dreamt!
Tammy, Larami, Jessica and all of the staff were awesome to work with. They were very professional, friendly, and attentive with all our needs. Larami, our event coordinator went above & beyond to ensure our day was everything we wished and so much more!Sent on 04/18/2019
The planning and efficiency for our day by the venue was so effortless & stress-free. The contracts were very detailed and explanatory, outlining all costs & making it easy to understand.
Their on-site catering is a huge bonus and the food delicious - so many of our guests raved over the food.
The newIy built & renovated bridal suite was more than accommodating, convenient, and I must say offered elegant, feminine touches. It offered a conducive and relaxing environment for all of my bridal party & our wedding dream team for the entire day before the wedding. The grooms suite had also been recently renovated and offered the same feels.
The flowers were gorgeous! Larami poured her heart & soul and worked countless hours to achieve the exact look we were looking for. I couldn’t have been any more thrilled with the outcome!
All areas totally exceeded any of our expectations. It turned out to be such a beautiful day - we couldn’t have dreamt for it to be any more perfect than the reality of it, and I can only contribute it to such a wonderful venue and atmosphere with great staff! We are forever thankful!

Amazing place, wedding coordinator and staff.
My entire experience from star to finish was amazing. The wedding planning process was made extremely simple by having everything in one place: the cake, the food, the alcohol, the tables and table cloths etc. The only vendors I had outside of them was a florist, photographer and dj. I also had Jessica as a wedding planner and it was the best decision I made. We had planning meetings, she gave me updates and sent me a timeline of events and the day of she was there to make sure everything ran smooth, which it did. I had the most amazing day and experience there.Sent on 11/02/2018

We were so pleased with the Nov. wedding celebration that Tammy and Laramie and the rest of their team put together for us. They were flexible and made the day a beautiful one for us- even with rain. They did a beautiful job with flowers and guests raved about the food. Everything was done with excellence! We look forward to having an anniversary celebration at this venue.Sent on 11/11/2017

Larami was the BEST ever. She made everything just perfect. Answered every phone call & question we had. I've always been told most weddings have a "hiccup" of some type, but not ours. Larami made sure of that. When I walked down the steps to go meet my groom and looked at the tables and set up, I was just so in awe. PERFECTION AT IT'S BEST. Everything I ask for and more. And the food was unbelievable. It's been almost 4 weeks & people are still raving over it. And the flowers were just beautiful. Just the right size & so vibrant. And the fact that she was able to wrap my father's handkerchief around my bouquet was so meaningful to me. Also the display of both our father's pictures made us feel like they were a part of our wedding. Again the flowers she used for that were perfect. Larami worked very hard on everything & it showed. Thank You for making our day unforgettable.Sent on 11/09/2017

We LOVE the Plantation on Sunnybrook. From the very first day we felt right at home in the venue as we stoped by frequently to talk about wedding planning and even had lunch there a few times just because we love the venue so much!Sent on 06/15/2017
The setup is awesome. We used three different areas for our wedding and everything flowed so smoothly from one area to the next. The outside garden area is amazing for the wedding ceremony. We got married on what turned out to be a very hot day and the staff pulled out these gorgeous giant umbrellas to put in the seating area to help keep our guests cool. We also love the house... which is so beautiful inside, it hardly needs any decorations. That's where the dinner portion of the night was served. My favorite area of all is the covered patio where we held or cocktail hour and dancing for the reception. There are gorgeous lights strung all throughout the trees. It's so amazing... our guests are still talking about the venue weeks later.
My husband loved this venue as well-- his favorite area is the grooms suite which is essentially the coolest man cave we've ever seen. It's in a building right behind the house and is so rustic and cool inside. My husband and dad are already schheming how they can help build each other ones at our houses!
By far the best thing about the venue was Tammy. She was our wedding planner... and I cannot imagine planning a wedding without her. She was so on top of every little thing. She was helpful and responded quickly when I had a million little questions the week of the wedding. And it was all of the little extra things she did and how she set everything up on the day of our wedding that was truly amazing. We love Tammy and we LOVE the Plantation on Sunnybrook.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful The Plantation on Sunnybrook was to work with throughout the whole wedding process. Allison is amazing and full of such joy for every engaged couple that walks through the door and she truly helps every bride's vision come to life! This is seriously a one stop shop for weddings because you aren't just getting a venue - you're getting access to wonderful catering, cakes and cupcakes, flowers, and so much more. I highly recommend this venue to any bride looking in the Roanoke area!Sent on 05/02/2017

Tammy was simply incredible to work with, and she was so available and understanding! We feel like she went out of her way to be there for us and to help make the wedding reception exactly what we wanted it to be. We were planning our wedding from Seattle and she helped take care of a lot of small and big details. Tammy also was our florist and did such a beautiful job with decorating the chapel and Plantation. Our bouquets were beautiful and exactly what I envisioned :) Overall, fantastic venue and Tammy is a very reliable person to work with. She will truly go above and beyond!Sent on 01/26/2017

I absolutely loved this Plantation on Sunnybrook! The venue is gorgeous, but more importantly, the staff if amazing! Plantation Creations catered, provided the floral arrangements, provided decorations, planned out the small details, and cleaned up after the ceremony! I could not have asked for a better wedding day and experience! I highly recommend this venue for anyone looking.Sent on 09/02/2016

We had my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception, and also the Rehearsal Dinner at The Plantation on Sunnybrook! Everything was exceptional.. including the weather! Tammy, Randy and their staff were wonderful, making sure everything went smoothly and just the way we had imagined! Perfect outdoor wedding venue and delicious food!Sent on 01/05/2016

Holding a wedding and reception on a beautiful farm can be quite overwhelming. You worry about everything working out just perfectly. We did our best to make sure everything was covered which pretty much was but as always some things were overlooked. No need to worry when you have Tammy and Randy from Plantation Creations handling your event. From Randy with the delicious food, hors d'oeuvre and cake, to Tammy with the planning, overseeing and running everything so it went smoothly, Tammy and Randy were awesome! If you want a beautifully run venue, put your trust in Plantation Creations! You will be so happy you did!Sent on 06/19/2017

We used Plantation on Sunnybrook as our caterer. Tammy was absolutely wonderful to work with and all of our guests were raving about the food. Tammy was very helpful in helping us work within our budget and was willing to revise the menu as many times as I needed in order to make sure everything was perfect. She and her team also worked great in our offsite venue.Sent on 01/09/2016

My husband and I were married at the Plantation May 2015. The grounds were well kept and made for a beautiful outside cocktail hour and wedding. The inside was stunning and the elegance atmosphere was perfect for our country French themed wedding. The staff was wonderful; they were extremely accommodating and professional through the process . The owner/wedding coordinator was amazing. She made sure every detail from the flowers, linens, set up, and so much more was perfect and exactly as asked. She handled each meeting with professionalizim and grace, even when I changed the design plan one month prior to the wedding. Although the details were on point, the guest still rave about the quality and taste of the food. The pasta station, cake, and cookie bar was so delicious and such a big hit. As for the price, they staff works with you and customize each and every detail for you. We were extremely pleased as they executed the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception to complete perfection.Sent on 09/26/2015

We had both our wedding and reception at The Plantation at Sunnybrook and I must say that not only was the venue beautiful, but the food was AWESOME as was service of all working our wedding. The Plantation's employees seem to sincerely enjoy helping make our "special" day truly a special and memorable day...so much so that my bride and many guests still rave about the venue and the job they did for us. When I say the food was great, that is an understatement. Add to that the presentation and awesome servers, which all were incredible, and you have a perfect combo! I can not rave enough about how pleased we were from start to finish. Love, love, LOVE this place and HIGHLY recommend it not only for weddings but for any "special" occasion. You won't regret letting them make your event not only beautiful, but also stress free and forever memorable!!!! I would give them more stars if possible!Sent on 07/23/2015

Tammy and Staff did a fabulous job! They took care of all the planning and details related to my wedding. I didn't have to worry about anything! The venue is beautiful with it's historic charming character. My flowers were amazing! They did all the bridal party flowers and reception venue flowers. They have a great staff who are very knowledgeable in the wedding market. They helped me find a great photographer and DJ.Sent on 10/16/2012
Thank you again for making my day perfect!

My daughter, Christina, was married at the Plantation Creations Catering & Events, The Plantation on Sunnybrook located in Roanoke, Virginia in June 2012. She set up an appointment and went in to meet with the Wedding Coordinator. The first meeting she attended giving a general idea of what she was thinking in regards to her theme. She met with Tammy Scaggs. Tammy took the ideas from her theme and came up with suggestions to fit that theme. My daughter’s first theme was Masquerade Ball.Sent on 06/15/2012
Two months into the planning and after we had signed the contract my daughter changes her theme to Alice in Wonderland. Tammy revamped the original contract and incorporated everything new into the new theme.
The day of my daughter’s wedding came and everything was absolutely perfect. Plantation on Sunnybrook handled everything from flowers, decorating, catering, the cake and the entire cleanup. The food was delicious and was plentiful. The flowers were fresh and beautiful. The decorations were done to perfection. The cake was four tiered with red roses running all the way down it. The staff was professional and accommodating to all of our guests.
Plantation on Sunnybrook did an excellent job. The wedding turned out to be fun and elegant. All of our guests left saying it was the best wedding/party they had ever attended. Our experience with Plantation on Sunnybrook was one of complete happiness. We have decided to make Plantation on Sunnybrook the place that we celebrate all our special occasions.

Sunnybrook listened to what I wanted and made it unique to my wants. They did a great job--they set up and decorated, made the cake and food, and the place looked great! Very nice place. The flowers outside even matched my flowers/wedding colors!Sent on 06/14/2011

My daughter's wedding & reception were held at Plantation in late July. Everything was absolutely beautiful! We all live hours away from Roanoke so it was important to work with someone who could provide as many services as possible. Tammy was not only extremely helpful as a result of her experience & creativity, but also was very patient with our many calls & emails!Sent on 08/29/2013
Tammy & the Plantation staff helped us make decisions on the many necessary details, listened to what the bride & groom wanted for the overall look & feel, worked with us (& our budget) to determine the food selections - and executed everything wonderfully! They also easily incorporated our ideas & the decorations we provided.
The bride & groom had a photographer selected & Tammy made great suggestions for area hotels, rehearsal dinner locations & a DJ, who was also fantastic. Tammy & her staff also worked very collaboratively with our DJ & photographer.
The rehearsal, ceremony & reception all went very smoothly. Tammy provided great direction to keep things moving & was a steady, reassuring presence throughout - even with a few contingency plans ready to put into action because of rain. Fortunately, it stopped a couple of hours before the ceremony so it barely impacted our original plans.
The beautiful details of Plantation's interior, as well as the lovely terrace & landscaping, were made even prettier as the decorations, flowers & table settings all came together. Countless guests commented about how much they enjoyed the food & what a beautiful wedding it was - some even said it was the best wedding & reception they had ever attended. Most importantly, the bride & groom were completely satisfied with every aspect!
