Located on the banks of the James River, Westover Plantation is a venue catering to weddings in Charles City, Virginia. Originally built midway through the 18th century, it has been hosting weddings for over 20 years. Both large and small celebrations are welcomed, with more intimate gatherings being given the opportunity to see the inside of the house.

Facilities and Capacity

Large gatherings can avail of the spacious lawn and large trees that border the property for an outdoor, tented celebration. Inside, 60 guests can enjoy a banquet meal or 100 can mingle at a standing reception. The proximity to the James River provides an opportunity for memorable wedding photos on the waterfront. Large parties can traverse the spacious grounds and enjoy cocktail hour as the sun sets over the expansive lawns. The recognizable ‘Westover doorway’ is yet another possible setting for wedding portraits. A get-ready room provides a private space, away from the busy celebrations, for the wedding party to use at their own convenience. Onsite parking is available. A wheelchair-accessible property, this estate offers guests exclusive access to the grounds, as well as certain areas of the house during the beginning of the reception.

Services Offered

Should a couple have a furry companion they wish to celebrate with, this venue is pet-friendly. Wireless connectivity allows the party to stay in touch with anyone who was unable to attend the occasion. Westover welcomes the different wedding businesses a couple chooses to help complement their day. Engagement parties and wedding showers can also be held at this estate.

Amazing Experience

A perfect place for us to spend our wedding day. We loved working with Westover and would do it all over again. Cannot recommend Andrea and the Westover enough. They did everything to make sure we had a beautiful day.

Incredible Venue and Hosts

My daughter was married at Historic Westover on October 2. We were blessed with the most glorious weather and the most amazing setting. She always wanted an outside wedding. When searching for a Wedding site, we found Historic Westover and knew it was the perfect place. What we didn't know at the time was just how incredible the family is that lives and hosts weddings at their home . Andrea Erda and her family did everything possible to help make the day special. Andrea's experience, gentle guidance, support and suggestions on how to improve the day were always spot on. She uses the word "magical" often and it truly was just that. I received numerous calls and texts over the next few weeks expressing just how magical the wedding and the setting was. Everyone was in awe of the incredible location, the Historic home and it's significance. My daughter and her new husband loved every minute and I sincerely believe it made their wedding "dreams" come true. We couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend this special place and the special people that live there!

Spectacular destination!

My daughter and new son-in-law had the most beautiful wedding at historic Westover Plantation near Richmond, Virginia. The two-hundred-year-old home is an exquisite backdrop for an outdoor wedding and reception, and the owners are seasoned hosts, who share their property with pride and grace. I continue to receive compliments from our guests which I share with the lovely Westover venue. Everyone had such a good time and I am convinced that Westover set the tone of warm Southern hospitality. I completely recommend this place.

Westover Plantation has become one of our favorite locations to coordinate and plan events with. The grounds are run by the family who occupies the home, and they personally take care of everything from grounds management to the walkthrough, to the tours of the historic home as well as overseeing the event setup. If any questions arise, they are very prompt and concise in responses and we are never left wondering about any of the questions that pop up. Many times, as planners, we are left to our own devices to plan the logistics and setup of events as questions are left unanswered or there is no one present who manages the grounds, and many times we have to make educated decisions due to lack of communication from venues, but that is never the case at Westover. We certainly feel like we are working as a team and never alone. We know first hand that this is the way that every family and couple feels who has chosen this venue for their wedding day as well. We would be remiss not to mention that view on the property! We can all be slightly jealous that this is the view they wake up to every morning- so stunning that we want just a piece of it for that special day! We look forward to working with Westover and the Erda family later this year, and hopefully many more times to come!
