We had our ceremony in the white ballroom, which was beautiful and intimate and made for just stunning photos; and we had our reception in the Randolph ballroom.

Having the provided day-of planner was a lifesaver, everything went so smoothly. The food and drinks were delicious and there was a great selection. I had guests comment on how good all of the food was, from the passed hors d'oeuvres to the buffet items to the cheese selection. Our wedding day was just perfect, in large part due to the beautiful venue and helpful staff at Nottoway.

Read More coordinators with all of our extensive questions, we knew this is where we wanted to get married. The staff at Nottoway Plantation are professionals at hosting and coordinating weddings. From the moment we booked to the end of the night, we had a coordinator answer every question and on the day of our wedding someone was with us the entire day to make sure everything went perfectly. They even think about things you might look over. We did some pictures on the levee and they brought us up there in a golf cart so I wouldn’t dirty up my dress. They assigned a waitress to us the entire reception to make sure we never were without a drink. Before we went into the reception they had a private dinner for us in the main house away from everyone where we could enjoy our food and take a breather right after our ceremony. If we needed anything, they were there for us on our wedding day. I was floored by the service. And the food!!! It was absolutely delicious. Everyone was impressed by how perfect everything was. The next morning we even went to the kitchen to thank the chef. Not one person had anything negative to say about the food. Although Nottoway Plantation is a little on the expensive side, you definitely get more than what you pay for. During our wedding day I felt like the whole property was all ours, they coordinated tours around our pictures that we wanted taken in the mansion and made sure no one was wondering around interrupting other photos we wanted done around the grounds. Don’t hesitate to book with this venue. You absolutely will not regret it one bit!

She was understanding and flexible enough to make the changes I had to do. She was also very patient in answering the many questions I asked her, since the first day 'til the day of my wedding. The wedding went beautifully - thanks to Nancy's efficiency. Nottoway is lucky to have a dedicated staff like Nancy. Likewise, I consider myself to be a lucky bride - having Nancy help all the way. Thank you Nottoway. Most of all, thank you Nancy!!!

We got married here this past weekend (10/28/16) and I am not exaggerating when I say if I had the chance to do it all again I would- at the exact same place with the exact same staff and people. We planned our wedding in 4 months- of course chose nottoway right off the bat... Read More because of the beautiful resort. Never could I have imagined that I would be waited on and catered to from the second I arrived (late at that) that morning. Verde salon (who is contracted through nottoway) did our hair and makeup while the wedding assistant Nancy catered to my every need with great pleasure. Everything was perfectly placed and I was more relaxed than I could have imagined. Lauren Kessler was my catering coordinator from the beginning and has answered every silly question I had and planned everything I asked of her. Even down to the dj and officiant who were also perfect. The food- EVERYONE raved about the food! After our perfectly intimate ceremony (85 people) my husband and I took a couple pictures then sat down to enjoy a little bit of everything we chose on our buffet- in a room in the mansion ALONE. It was private and perfect and I think this is one thing that every couple NEEDS after the adrenaline of the wedding! This venue knows what they are doing so when they recommend doing something- ROLL WITH IT. On to our reception- Kim was our FB director of the night- she was fabulous! Our guests had so much fun that when it was time for us to exit with sparklers everyone started chanting "ONE MORE HOUR"! She immediately got on the phone after the ok from my dad and directed to keep the party going for yet another hour! I would recommend Nottoway for ceremony and reception any day! Worth every single penny!!!!!

Thanks to the beauty and staff of Nottoway Plantation our wedding day was a dream. Everyone was thoroughly informative, helpful and pleasant.

Nottoway is a beautiful place to get married. It had always been my dream wedding venue. When I finally got engaged, it wasn't the first on our list due to price but things changed and we ended up on a search for a venue 9 months before our wedding. Nottoway was the only... Read More plantation we found available for our very popular date at the time we wanted to get married. So, we booked them! I was so excited through out the entire process, but things went sour pretty quickly. We blocked off every room for our guests and paid a hefty deposit to do so. Our guests would call to make a reservation under our room block and were told there were no rooms available when there were plenty. The ladies at the front desk were zero help whatsoever in getting it fixed so we ended up in constant contact with the hotel manager. She was amazing at getting everything settled, but unfortunately, we were in weekly contact with her to get everything done right. This should NOT be the bride & groom's problem. I understand that there is a minimum for food & beverage costs at the venue. We were not verbally informed of the 22% resort fee at booking that would be added on to every single penny spent at Nottoway. This increased our price for the food & beverage by SO much, it was ridiculous. I don't understand the point of the resort fee, though. To me, it's just a sneaky way for them to make more money when they are already charging a small fortune. The food WAS amazing though. During the planning process, I didn't feel like our coordinator really cared for any of our ideas. She made sure to let me know whether something was the norm or not. I was thankful when the other girl was our coordinator for the wedding day. She was outstanding and listened to everything I wanted. After the wedding was over, we went to the mansion bar to hang out with our guests. When we were ready to go to our honeymoon suite that was reserved for us, we were surprised when we walked in on another couple in our room! Some how or another this room had been given to someone else and the night manager was zero help at all. The bride and groom's room was given away for their wedding night. It was unacceptable. Thankfully, I had reserved another room to get ready in that day instead of the bridal suite so we had somewhere to stay. However, that room had a massive water leak in the ceiling and the air didn't work in the bedroom. All in all, the wedding & reception was beautiful, but the hotel portion severely lacked.
