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.
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.

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!
