Thank You, Dover Hall!
We cannot express how exceptional Dover Hall was for our daughter's wedding. The space, service, food, and ambience made for a perfect venue. All the guests thoroughly enjoyed the event, and we so appreciated the excellent service we received as well. Thank you, Dover team, for a wonderful event!Sent on 01/21/2020

The very best!
Oh wow, where do I start? Dover Hall was our first and only choice for our wedding venue. We were drawn to the space for so many reasons; the warm and cozy space for our winter wedding, the elegance, the superior staff, outstanding food, and the indoor capacity but we were surprised to find our expectations not only met but surpassed in every way. As a wedding photographer, I knew that a venue could be stunning but without exceptional service, a wedding day struggles to feel special for the couple, vendors and staff. I had photographed a wedding at Dover Hall a few years prior to our wedding and my experience as a vendor had me sold. As a photographer, they made my experience outstanding, provided the best food and made sure I felt comfortable, all to ensure that the couple we were serving had the very best day. When choosing Dover for our own wedding venue, we knew that if they treated vendors in this way, the experience as a couple would be something special. From the day of booking to our New Year's Eve wedding, Melanie and Miranda's constant encouragement, structure, and professionalism was a grounding place for us throughout the whole planning process. On the wedding day, Miranda, Melanie, Nadia, Chef Lee and the whole staff worked overtime to fill in gaps, make sure the day ran smoothly and in the end were intricate parts in creating the very best day for us. We cannot thank them enough. We love Dover Hall and recommend it to everyone!Sent on 05/06/2020

The experience that Dover Hall and it’s staff provided us, both on our wedding day and leading up to it, was absolutely phenomenal. We met Miranda on our first day touring the property. Not only was she personable and friendly, but she was extremely knowledgeable about both the accommodations of the venue and the wedding industry as a whole. She helped to answer our many questions, work to find a package that fit our needs and budget, and made us feel confident in all of the many details that go into the planning process. Her teammate Melanie was equally knowledgeable and helpful, and she was a tremendous resource for day and week of details. Between them, the ownership team who was often visible, and the incredible Chef Lee, we constantly felt like our wedding was the most important event of the year to them.Sent on 10/25/2019
The venue itself was second to none. From the drive down the path to the estate, to the incredibly magnificent detail in every room, to the gardens and lawn out back, you’d be hard pressed to find another location like this. The wedding parties were able to enjoy the bridal suite and the “groomsmen rooms” all day before the wedding. Drinks and delicious snacks were provided and enjoyed as we relaxed our way to getting ready and the ceremony. The reflecting pool/lawn out back provided a wonderful scene for the wedding party and guests to enjoy the ceremony. After that, guests were able to tour the property, enjoying all of the rooms, patios, and magnificent sunset. The ballroom and tent provided plenty of space for us to enjoy dinner then dancing later on. Bars were plentiful and bar staff was both friendly and helpful. We received so many compliments from friends and family on everything from the evening. It truly was the perfect night, and we’ll remember it forever. Thank you to all of the Dover Hall staff for making it so special for us!
