Wow!! I started looking for venues today. Your responses to brides are insanely rude, highly unprofessional, and lacks all sense of 'saving face' to the public - thank you for shortening my search!! \r

Words cannot adequately express our extreme gratitude for the outstanding and professional job that Larimore staff provided at our daughters wedding. All I can say is, Pure Perfection! All our guests said it will be the most memorable wedding they have ever been to. Everyone was in awe, including us! Larimore made Alexis and Richie's day the most romantic they could ever envision.---Joe and Diane

I had my wedding this Fall at the Larimore. If I wasn??t trying to plan for an accessible wedding for my out-of-town guests, I would have chosen another venue. It was nice that it was close to the airport, as we were out of town and trying to plan the wedding from another state. One other nice feature was the pure convenience of having our wedding and reception all at the same place.
The plantation house is beautiful from outside??which made for nice pictures. However, it is in need of a serious face-lift inside. There were outdated furnishings, dolls and old fake floral arrangements inside which made for awkward backgrounds. The temperature was also pretty warm (80 degrees) in both the house and the reception hall. Dena acted put out when my now Mother In Law asked if we could turn it down for our guests?? comfort.
As far as a wedding coordinator, Dena was very stand-off and not very personable in her overall demeanor. I primarily reached out as questions arose and found Dena to work with me on things, but only if I would pay extra. On the day of my wedding, she really didn??t approach us (except to say when we were cutting the cake) and never congratulated me during the entire event. My wedding party kept asking if she was ok or mad. I guess I??d just expect someone a bit more approachable and bubbly to work in the wedding industry. Even though there were no events before my Saturday evening wedding, she was unwilling to move the time for the rehearsal from noon on Friday to something later in the day. This posed a bit of a problem for some of the wedding party. Also, we asked to arrive an hour early and paid $200 extra for that time. As for the decoration packet, words of warning- don??t do this. At first, I thought it would make the planning easier, and once I looked at what was involved I asked to take this off our contract??primarily for the tulle backed chairs that really didn??t go with my theme at all. She charged me $150 extra dollars to take these off the chairs, even though they were included in the decorations I specifically didn??t want. These are already on the chairs, but they make you think you??re getting all of these ??extra? decorations for the $600.
They also recommend using their preferred vendors. I would warn against this as well. Dena gave me a floral arrangement price list, but Jenny at Stems wanted the extra amount in another check written out to her. So, instead of getting any savings, it ends up being more of a hassle by writing two checks to Dena and the florist with no real ??deal?. We also were told at the beginning of our wedding venue search that, if we had less than the 155 guests for the minimum per plate pricing, they??d offer an extra entre option. This was another empty promise- we didn??t receive any extra selections and ended up paying more than $600 extra due to the smaller guest count yet still paying for the minimum 155 headcount.
For all of the extra nickel??ing and diming the Larimore did, we really should have looked elsewhere for someone who would be willing to work with me and make my day as stress-free as possible without all of the hassle.

Business Response:

Sarah....its unfortunate that you painted such a dismal picture of such a wonderful day! We do appreciate that you did bring up at least a couple of the great advantages of our venue.....convenience, accessibility and a one stop venue for both a wedding and reception! To be fair to us, through out your whole wedding & reception, you and your mother responded to us that everything was β??perfectβ?! Your mother was so happy when we helped move all your things to the cars at the end of the night as she expressed her great appreciation, that she wanted our business cards so that she could pass them to all her friends. Sure, it would be nice if 100% of brides were appreciative of a business that provided all that was promised and more.....but there is always a .01% that are impossible to please. We wish you the best in your new marriage!

We had a beautiful outdoor wedding and reception at this estate. Lots of great picture opportunities, the guests loved it, the food was great and the price was extremely reasonable. They even have an indoor chapel in case it rains!

Message from Larimore House Plantation

Brides! Do yourself a huge favor and don't book your wedding venue til you at least come and just see this beautiful venue, meet the owners and see all they have to offer at such great prices! If you are looking for an Elegant event and the option of beautiful rain back-up chapel in case of rain....you won't find these things anywhere else and you certainly won't be able to match their pricing.
