Tuckahoe Plantation is a spectacular exclusively outdoor venue for weddings up to 500 guests. As a National Historic Landmark, the plantation’s private owners maintain the authentic and historic beauty of Thomas Jefferson’ boyhood home for celebrations like yours! The typical wedding season runs April-October; however, weddings can be booked outside that dateline with the understanding of unpredictable weather. A reception tent is recommended, but not required, and Tuckahoe encourages couples to bury the bourbon to keep away foul weather! Couples have the ability to customize the details specifically to their wishes and tastes, which means there are no cookie-cutter celebrations at Tuckahoe! Please visit the links below for venue fees, fee inclusions, and on-site service options, such as wedding coordination and floral arrangements.

Tuckahoe Plantation is also a great option for engagement parties, bridal and wedding showers, bridesmaids luncheons, and rehearsal dinners!

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!”

My husband and I had all but given up on finding the perfect outdoor wedding location, when we stumbled upon Tuckahoe Plantation. After walking the various wedding and reception sites of Tuckahoe, I was left wondering how I had never heard of it before… not only was it perfect for our wedding, but beautiful to visit on any given day! Todd and I fell in love with the rural feel of Tuckahoe, and were sold on the plantation as both our wedding and reception location – we found it to be very convenient for both the wedding party and our guests. Our wedding happened to fall on the Saturday which ended Garden Week… so not only were the grounds in pristine condition, but the various rooms of the house (where my bridesmaids and I made final preparations) were adorned in fresh flowers from Tuckahoe’s gardens. The staff and residents of Tuckahoe were a pleasure to work with, and we appreciated their flexibility given the fact hat this is a preserved historic location. Now expecting our first son in a few months, we look forward to sharing the beauty and experience of Tuckahoe Plantation with him.

Tuckahoe Plantation is the perfect natural setting for a romantic ceremony. The picturesque background provides an intimate feeling shared with family and friends. Tuckahoe will always hold a special place in our hearts.
-David and Kathleen Kern

We have received SO many compliments and personal notes from guests at our wedding. Many of them stating it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. Everything at Tuckahoe was lush, elegant and rich in history. The setting truly felt like it was straight out of a fairytale.  The flower arrangements and bouquets that [were put together by the Tuckahoe Gardener] for us were breathtaking and far more exquisite than I had imagined. And the most incredible part – it all came from the fabulous gardens and resources at Tuckahoe!
