Tuckahoe Plantation is a spectacular
exclusively outdoor venue for a wedding. Founded in 1731, Tuckahoe Plantation is a national historic landmark here in Richmond, Virginia along the James River. Our typical event season runs April-October. Occasionally, we will book events outside that dateline but with the understanding of unpredictable weather. Just to give you a bit of information, Tuckahoe is a private estate, owned and maintained by 17 families stemming from the rich Tuckahoe history. Because of this, we are not a country club trying to "get through" 2-3 weddings per weekend. You will have exclusive right to Tuckahoe Plantation for the entire day of your wedding. This grants us flexibility. You also will NOT need an ABC liquor license.
If you are planning both a ceremony and reception, that will run around $6-7,000 or less for just a ceremony or just a reception and dependent on day of the week and whether it is peak or non-peak season. That fee includes: 1-3 Tuckahoe staff members for the entire day of your event, exclusive right to Tuckahoe for the entire day (closed to the public), 6 "party hours," use of the Old Stable 2 hours prior to the start of your event for a total of 8 hours, provisions of electricity, running water and restroom facilities (for up to 120 guests- need for additional restrooms beyond that capacity) and grounds lighting. We are an "a la carte venue," meaning you will be responsible for the caterer, music/entertainment and rentals. However, we do have some rentals available at Tuckahoe.
The luxury of this venue is you can make it as expensive or inexpensive as you choose. The grounds themselves need very little in terms of embellishment, but enhancing the already natural features of this estate can also make for a brilliant event. Our on-site gardner is also able to make flower/table arrangements and bouquets for less than a florist using flowers and greenery straight from the grounds of Tuckahoe. Any flowers beyond our gardens can also be purchased and included in these arrangements. Tents are strongly recommended; however, not required. We are an entirely outdoor venue (with some exceptions); thus, being prepared for the worst with a Plan B is key. We do have entirely "Al Fresco" outdoor weddings without tents that are absolutely stunning and growing rapidly in popularity, but I always recommend putting a tent (or 2) on hold just in case!
