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.

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 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

My daughter got married at Poplar Hill June 23. It was the most beautiful wedding and the most gorgeous venue I've ever seen! Not only is the 17th century home and gardens beautiful and meticulously landscaped it has such welcoming touches like lights in trees that house a lovely porch swing, and numerous picture perfect photo opportunities with horses in the pasture and breath taking sunsets. The pavillion comfortably seated our 100 guests with plenty of room left over. The owners bend over backwards to make your day special. I can't think of any better place to have a wedding!Sent on 07/12/2018
