Planning a destination wedding can be very stressful, and it was for me. However, once I was able to get to Nottoway a few days before our wedding, they put me completely at ease. Our wedding planner for the day of was Megan and she was absolutely outstanding. Anything that I needed, and even things that I didn't know I needed, Megan was there. Not just for me, but she made everyone in our wedding party feel that way. The staff were amazing during our reception as well. Bringing us to go boxes after the reception, realizing that we didn't really get to eat a lot of our food. The only thing that I could say was a con, were the tourist guides. We had the entire plantation to take pictures, but chose inside due to the blistering heat. I realize that the tour guides have a job to do, but they were really rude to us and several people in my bridal party and our photographer. They also used us as part of their tour since we were taking pictures, which I felt was rude as well. It made people stop and watch us, making it difficult to move around the tour group, who were suppose to stay in one area, but didn't. Otherwise the experience was wonderful!

I chose this venue b/c I'm from Louisiana, and wanted a southern wedding. Hands down Nottoway is the most beautiful plantation venue! My guests thought the same...I got so many compliments. The staff are amazing, and Meghan (one of the coordinators) was awesome!! A little pricey (hence the 4 stars) but if it fits your budget, it is worth every penny and you won't be disappointed. They have a plan B in case of rain, offer discounts for room blocks, and can put you in touch with a great florist, photographer, and hair/make-up. And the food was awesome! I could go on and on. This is one happy bride :)

My husband and I could not have been more thrilled with how our wedding turned out!! Nottoway is one of the most gorgeous plantations I have ever seen; I was breathless at the thought of having my wedding there. The day of was phenomenal! The wedding coordinator was there all day, I had two girls (bridal attendants) that were there for whatever I needed AND my girls and I had access to a huge, beautiful bridal dressing room, which took the stress off of getting ready in a small area. Our wedding was in the White Ballroom, which hardly needs decoration at all considering how magnificent it looks. Our reception was in the Cypress Ballroom, which was exquisite. The food is UNBEATABLE!!!!!! If you want delicious Cajun food paired with a southern castle, Nottoway is a perfect choice. Loved every second of planning with them, touring the plantation with my family and enjoying every single millisecond of my wedding day (and night in one of their adorable, modern cottages)!

As a venue we could not have asked for a more perfect location. The amenities for the wedding were perfect. Our coordinator saw to everything, the staff was great, the location absolutely picturesque with photo ops at every turn. I highly recommend Nottoway for a destination wedding. With 40 rooms they were able to accommodate nearly all our guests. The reception dinner was fantastic. We served beef tenderloin and the blackend redfish. My guests all said hands down it was the most amazing food they have ever had. Fantastic!

I took my bridal portraits at Nottoway and have to say it was the most amazing placde! The grouns are gorgeous and feature the enormous Southern plantation home! They allowed me and my photographers to shoot where we wanted. I had my own privete dressing area (the size of a one bedroom house!). They also have a salon for those who need it!

The event staff were amazing! They took care of EVERYTHING for us. We just dropped off all of our ceremony and reception accessories and they set everything up for us while we got ready. If they were unsure of how we wanted something set up, they came and asked just in case. During the planning there was a little confusion with the room rates for our guests, but everything was worked out in the end. We stayed in the new honeymoon suite and it was so nice. A delicious hot breakfast and a tour of the mansion were included when anyone stayed overnight there.
The food was EXCELLENT! We had a seated dinner with Steak and Chicken. The steak was perfectly cooked and it was huge! We asked if they could put the pistachio pecan crust on chicken instead of catfish and they didn't have any problem with that and it turned out great.
Overall, I'd say they gave me the perfect fairytale-like wedding and I couldn't have asked for any better!
