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 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!

Best weekend ever!
Where do I even begin!? I recently got married at Dover Hall Estate and let me just tell you, it was hands down the best day of my life! Our wedding was truly like something out of a fairytale.
My husband and I live in Northern California with no ties to Virginia, so this was a destination wedding for all. California has some amazing venues but we were looking for something with a grand European vibe and ideally wanted to be able to stay overnight at the venue. Dover Hall checked all of our boxes so we booked it site unseen and we are SO GLAD we did! Not to mention, the views alone were breathtaking, even better in person!
The incredible people who make this venue come to life deserve an award.
We grew to love Miranda and Melanie who were amazing throughout the entire process and made each step seem like a breeze. They recommended several vendors which we ended up working with Alana, from Chancey Charm and Casey from Cultivate Event Co. both of which I would also highly recommend as everyone had such great chemistry with the Dover Hall gals and made us feel at home.
Chef Lee and Nadia also played a significant role. Chef Lee not only prepared our reception dinner but our rehearsal dinner as well.. and let’s just say, people are still raving about the food!
We are forever grateful for Dover hall and cant wait to travel down memory lane when we plan our next trip back!
