Westover is one of the most beautiful and historic American houses from the 18th century. Its Southern elegance, majestic setting on the James River and rich historical character all combine to make it the ideal location for your once-in-a-lifetime event.
While the grounds and garden are open daily to visitors, the inside of the home is rarely open to the public. During the Reception, your guests have the unique opportunity to explore the first floor of the house, taking in the rich architectural details and beautiful period furnishings.
Westover has been hosting beautiful weddings for over 20 years, from small intimate gatherings to enormous black-tie affairs. We aim to make your wedding day as special and unique as you are and no detail is too small to discuss. If you love history, the waterfront, natural beauty or simply want a location you and your guests will never forget, please contact us for more information and to arrange a visit.

We are in recovery mode today from our daughter's wedding on Saturday (9/16/17) at Westover Plantation in Charles City, VA, but have to take the time to provide feedback on the venue and the owners of the plantation, Andrea & Rob Erda. First, the location alone is stunning - with gorgeous gardens, a majestic home, and a spot on the James River it would be hard to beat - but add to that the graciousness of the owners, and it made for a perfect evening. Every time I contacted Andrea with a question or concern, I received a prompt response and always a "can do" approach. We spent multiple evenings wandering around the plantation searching for the perfect spot for each of the wedding events (ceremony, reception, cocktail hour), and were always welcomed - even at 8:00 one evening while we "buried the bourbon" in the dark to follow the tradition for good weather. The day of the wedding was (thanks to the bourbon??) perfect - but Andrea and Rob both worked all day with the caterer, rental company, and everyone else to make sure things ran smoothly. They were even there at the very end handing out sparklers and making sure all of the guests got safely to the bus. I HIGHLY recommend this venue - an incredible location with wonderful hosts.

From the moment we stepped out of the car, we knew Westover was the place we were going to get married. Set right on the river and surrounded with beautiful gardens, it truly took our breath away. We looked at several other locations in the area, and there was no beating Westover's view. I could go on and on about how beautiful it is!
We met with owner, Andrea, who is as nice as they come and very knowledgable about the history of Westover and the area in general. They have hosted many wedding over the years, so she can answer pretty much any question you might have. I was a very hands on bride, and really wanted the freedom to choose my own vendors and decorate how I wanted, and Andrea was great about being flexible and letting me do my own thing.
I cannot recommend Westover enough, and will always treasure it!

Westover was a gorgeous spot for our sunset wedding ceremony and reception site. The grounds are simply beautiful. All of our guests said it was the most beautiful riverside wedding they'd ever been to. If you are looking for a southern plantation feel, this is it. No other plantation around the Richmond area has the view Westover does!
Andrea, the plantation owner, is very friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. She is very hands on with the details and has a lot of experience doing so. Her kids and her husband are also a pleasure to be around. We were able to choose all of our own vendors for everything, but she has recommendations if you need them. The venue can accommodate a large number of guests and you are able to get dressed and ready on site which was important to us. Guests are also allowed to tour the house during cocktail hour.
I have nothing but good things to say. Everything turned out perfect and we can't wait to go back to visit!

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!
