From the Mother of the Bride

As a mother, I always envisioned that my daughter would have a beautiful wedding in a romantic and magnificent setting. I do not think that any place in the entire world could have more appropriately fulfilled my hopes and expectations. My daughter was married on June 3, 2006, at Monmouth Plantation, In choosing to have a destination wedding, we not only had a great wedding night, but we had an entire weekend of events that allowed us to relax and enjoy with all of our guests that traveled from all over the country.

Each morning we had a buffet breakfast in the dining room that offered a breadth of wonderful foods. Everyone would gather in the morning and we enjoyed beginning our day with everybody at hand. During the afternoons we would find some of our guests relaxing under the many verandas that offered overhead fans, or playing a game of croquet, or just strolling through the gardens and the lakes on the property. For others Natchez offered wonderful adventures in history.

As for the actual wedding - well my daughter had the fairytale: she passed by angels, was surrounded by flowers, and had a group of guests that were so happy and relaxed - and by the time the wedding came everyone had a chance to actually get to know one another. The sit down dinner that followed the ceremony was delicious and presented wonderfully. I could not have hoped for a more gourmet dinner. I cannot say enough about the authenticity of this place; from the lush grounds, to the authentic-antique style rooms, to the gourmet food, and most of all the accommodating and lovely staff - each and every aspect provided my family and guests the perfect wedding.
