    Dover Hall is an absolutely stunning setting. My daughter had a wedding event last week and one of the owners, Jeff, and events manager, Eileen, could not have been kinder or more helpful- truly taking care of RVA bridal parties. The grand hall, the staircases, and the bride’s dressing room were all fantastic. The bride’s dressing room was large and airy with large windows, mirrors and chandelier – definitely a setting to excite a bride and set a princess mood. One of the bedrooms has a window seat with white and golden pillows that is beautiful for pictures. The pastoral landscape is inspiring and beautiful.

    I do not mean to go on too long, but I have also been a corporate officer and could picture a productive and fun retreat in this setting so close to Richmond yet removed from day to day. A cozy bar area, breakout rooms (I would want the windowed ‘conservatory’ for my team…) and the wide outdoors for games would be terrific. Just cannot say enough thanks to the management staff for the great event they gave us.

    The best venue I could have dreamt for! We rented out the entire building for the weekend (which is required in peak wedding season) and I am so glad we did. Dover hosted both our rehearsal dinner, and wedding/reception! Miranda (wedding coordinator for Dover) and the owners provided a top notch experience with kindness, class, and ease. The venue is gorgeous, the staff is fun AND professional. While there are always challenges (a couple rooms AC did not work), they handled it all with ease and grace, and found solutions. I loved this space and cannot wait to return to stay at their b&b! What an incredible weekend, it is all because Dover made this possible! The food is superb; the staff is helpful; the venue is epic; The outdoor space is gorgeous. I truly believe this is best venue near Richmond!! One note: If you want a tent for the outside (above their terrace or a stand alone), you do need to use an outside vendor (however Dover may acquire one soon) which is a cost to add if you are hoping to use their outside space and need a rain plan. With this being said, If I had to do it all over, I would use Dover again and again. We splurged on this venue and it was our best decision.
