Wedding venue for 500 guests
Richmond, United States of America
Tuckahoe Plantation is a spectacular exclusively outdoor venue for a wedding up to 500 guests. We are LGBT friendly and non-denominational! Our typical event season runs April-October; however, 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 a trust of perpetuity. You will have exclusive right to Tuckahoe Plantation for the entire day of your wedding. You also will NOT need an ABC liquor license.
If you are planning both a ceremony and reception, that will run around this price 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. Please refer to our attached contract and pricing.
Our 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 prior to the start of your event, provisions of electricity, running water and restroom facilities (for up to 100 guests- need for additional restrooms beyond that septic 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 and provide a list of preferred vendors.
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 beautiful event. Our on-site gardner is also able to make flower/table arrangements and bouquets 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 recommended but not required. We are an entirely outdoor venue, thus being prepared for the worst with a Plan B is key. We also encourage you to bury the bourbon!
Tuckahoe Plantation is also available for engagement parties, bridal showers, bridesmaid luncheons, rehearsal dinners and more! Indoor space available for <75 guests. Please refer to the pricing information attached and special rates upon request.
The next step is to arrange a time for you to come visit the Plantation, where I will give you a site bride tour and additional information. This allows you to envision your event and see if we are the right fit for you.
After your bride tour (which is free, does not apply to tour pricing), please do not hesitate to email me with questions! Please monitor our Facebook Page and Website for updates on bookings and other important notifications! Please note, we do no longer offer complimentary courtesy blocks for any wedding or event date due to repeated complication and confusion.
To book with us we require a 25% deposit, separate $500 security deposit (NOT cashed) and a signed contract. Another 25% will be due 6 months after the 1st deposit. Final payment due the day prior to the wedding. You may make as many payments as often as you choose.
