Unbelievable Day

Absolutely magical! We were married at Dover Hall at the end of September and are still glowing from the day. We knew we had found our venue from the moment we walked in the door. This venue is stunning in photos but even more unbelievable in person. So much goes into wedding planning but working with Dover Hall made the process so much easier. From our first email to the end of the wedding reception, Dover Hall had nothing but top notch service. A special thank you to Emily and Stephanie for working so closely with us and answering countless emails. We also want to thank Asia and the catering staff at Dover Hall for making our guests truly feel like royalty on our day. The group at Dover Hall worked so hard to personalize the day and made our wedding feel completely unique. If you are getting married in the Richmond area, don't walk: run to Dover Hall!

Spectacular Venue

Our experience here at Dover Hall was spectacular! Our wedding coordinators, Wendy and Rachel were just so pleasant to work with. We honestly don't think we could have asked for better. The level of support and attentiveness was beyond expectations. We haven't even mentioned how STUNNING this venue was. Most of our guests were flabbergasted with it's beauty! From the AMAZING food, by their very best, Chef Leah Randolph and team. If you were looking for a stunning venue, with delicious food, and memorable experience. Look no further, this is the best place to have your event.
