If I could give over a 1,000 star rating I would! After getting the news that our wedding venue canceled on us just months before our wedding, Dover Hall came to the rescue. After our wedding planner reached out and they heard about the situation they welcomed up with open arms and even price matched with our other venue! I was in complete tears from their kindness! My husband and I both work in the wedding industry and value customer service so much, and they were BEYOND AMAZING in every. single. way. I could not give you one complaint! From the coordinator Miranda, to the owners, to the chef to all the staff members, we felt like family with them. I could not have imagined a more perfect place or day for our wedding. Dover Hall truly is an amazing venue and the people behind it value their couples and families and make them a top priority in every way. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Dover Hall for all that you've done for us, we couldn't have had a more perfect day!

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.

Dover Hall is a fairy tale venue
We loved this place! Everything about it is unique and different. The bridal party suites were awesome and roomy enough for everyone to have hair and makeup done on sight ( 8 people) The onsite coordinator, Miranda, is awesome to work with. She is very helpful and pleasant to work out all the details with. It is a little more expensive than some venues but it was well worth it. Our guest loved wandering in the house to look at all the exquisite rooms during cocktail hour and it was large enough space to accommodate the ceremony and reception.
