Facilities and Capacity
Poplar Hill offers many acres of Virginia countryside speckled with crepe myrtles, boxwoods, and hackberry trees. From the outdoor reception space you can see the several acres of pastures, where Poplar Hill horses run through the fields. The wildflower and tree-filled acreage offer idyllic photo opportunities. Your ceremony can be held anywhere throughout the property. However, the staff can point you to several popular outdoor areas that offer enough clear space, picturesque scenery, and ideal daytime lighting. For the reception, Poplar Hill has built a large pavillion space overlooking the pastures. The pavilion has an extended patio, offering room for up to 350 guests. Though the house is not used for weddings or receptions, the bridal party will have access to parts of the house to use as a bridal suite.
Poplar Hill offers plenty of in-house services to help you plan the perfect wedding day. They offer several event rentals to help you plan your wedding decor. They also include 30 round tables and chairs in all wedding packages to reduce the responsibility you have for wedding decor. Poplar Hill also offers an all-inclusive in-house catering service.

Megan and Bernie are awesome! They make the process very easy and are extremely flexible whenever I needed to come to the venue to take measurements for decorations or figure out layouts.Sent on 11/05/2019
We also had our rehearsal dinner there and the food was outstanding! We had them do everything from start to finish and it made the process very simple for us. We got many many compliments on the food!!! I highly recommend Poplar Hill😁. (The price I listed below is for the rehearsal dinner only).

When looking for wedding venues in the Blackstone area, we immediately fell in love with Poplar Hill! The owners Bernie and Megan were fantastic to work with! They took time to answer all of our questions whether by telephone, stopping by for a meeting or via email. We felt like family through the entire process and not like another couple getting married. Our family and friends raved about the accessibility, amenities the venue offered, beautiful charm of the venue grounds, and the amazingly friendly staff. Our wedding day was perfect and we highly recommend anyone looking for an outdoor, southern style wedding to check out Poplar Hill Wedding and Events Venue! We were so fortunate to have found it!Sent on 11/03/2019

Poplar Hill saved my wedding
I found Poplar Hill through Facebook, more like they found me. I had posted about my previous venue ghosting me. I was left with nothing, even my money is still with my old venue. Poplar Hill reached out and offered me to come for a tour! I fell in love before I even saw all of the grounds. It’s beautiful and open, so so perfect for any type of wedding at just about any time of year. They worked with me and stayed in contact almost weekly! Any questions I had were answered quickly and thoroughly. The bridal suite is so gorgeous, it’s roomy and cozy with a ton of natural light. Poplar Hill was an easy choice for me, do yourself a favor and take a tour! Once you meet the owners and see the grounds, it’s honestly a no brainer.Sent on 09/19/2019
