A wedding fit for Scarlett O’Hara: MONMOUTH PLANTATION

I have been looking for ages for the perfect location for a wedding on a southern plantation and I have just found it – Monmouth Plantation leaves me speechless. It is a property that will take your breath away from the spectacular architecture to the rolling gardens and archways draped with Spanish moss – absolutely magnificent.

Located in Natchez, Mississippi, just a few hours north of New Orleans, Louisiana, Monmouth Plantation is a National Historic Landmark. It is a small luxury inn featuring 30 gorgeous guest rooms and suites. Originally built by John Hankinson in 1818, Monmouth Plantation was purchased by General John A. Quitman, a hero of the Mexican War in 1826 and remained in his family for nearly a century.

Monmouth Plantation’s beauty and elegance have earned it numerous accolades within the hotel industry as well as within the architectural field including:
- A Four Diamond rating from AAA
- Listed within Condé Nast’s 2006 Gold List
- Listed within Travel + Leisure’s 2006 Top 500 Hotels of the World
- Glamour magazine and USA Today both called it one of the 10 most romantic places in America
- Zagat has named it “One of the Top 50 U.S. Inns & B&Bs”
- American Historic Inns says it is “One of the Top Ten Most Romantic Inns of the Year”
