Venue Setting

Tuckahoe Plantation is a beautiful exclusively outdoor venue for a wedding up to 500 guests. Founded in 1733, the plantation is a National Historic Landmark and a privately owned estate (which means there are no noise restriction or need for an ABC liquor license). The typical event season runs April-October; however, events can be booked outside that dateline with the understanding of unpredictable weather. A reception tent is recommended but not required. Couples are also encouraged to bury the bourbon to keep away foul weather!
 
Pricing depends on a few factors, but the average ceremony & reception costs around $6,000-$7,000. The venue fee includes: 1-3 Tuckahoe staff members throughout the day of your event, exclusive right to Tuckahoe for the day (closed to the public), 5-6 "party hours," use of the Old Stable, provisions of electricity, running water and restroom facilities for up to 100 guests, and grounds lighting. Tuckahoe is an "a la carte venue," meaning the client is responsible for the caterer, music/entertainment and rentals. However, Tuckahoe does offer some rentals, and provide a list of preferred vendors. One of Tuckahoe's wonderful Venue Coordinators can be hired as wedding planner, which eases the stress of planning off the clients' shoulders! The on-site gardener also can create beautiful arrangements and bouquets using flowers and greenery from Tuckahoe's gardens (plus any requested supplemental flowers). This is a lovely way to embellish your wedding with the natural features of the estate!
