Westover has been hosting intimate and beautiful weddings for over 20 years. 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.
You and your guests have exclusive use of the grounds around the house as well as the rare opportunity to view the first floors of the Main House and the East Wing during the first hour of the Reception.
I hope you will consider making a visit to Westover to experience this special venue.

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! Whitney H.
Our daughter used the beautiful and historic Westover Plantation for her evening wedding reception. The ceremony was held just down the road at the Westover Episcopal Church. Andrea the property owner was a delight to work with from beginning to end. She had suggestions for the various vendors we needed, but was open to new vendors she hadn't used before. There is a huge lawn in the front between the James River and the house with spectacular views and great photography options. We had a lighted 40 x 80 high peak pole tent with 100 guests. There was ample room for guests to tour the grounds, walk along the river, or just mingle and visit in the yard. The house itself was beautiful and was open to tour during our cocktail hour. The entire area was very well manicured and maintained. The bride and her attendants were able to use a large room upstairs to get ready for the wedding and she was able to use the grand staircase to meet her father before the wedding. Formal pics were taken both inside and outside and were stunning.
We had many out of town guests from all over the country, so they appreciated all of the history, and being able to wander around and check out all of the outbuildings. Our feedback was only positive...everybody loved it and said it was the most beautiful place for our reception.
I would highly recommend the Westover Plantation. Andrea was a pleasure to work with, and our evening was perfect! Mother of the Bride
This is a "story book" site for a wedding! Everything about Westover is flat out stunning. The owner Andrea goes out of her way to make sure that you have that "once in a lifetime experience"... Manny Green, father of the bride
We think there is no better wedding venue in the state or country! Look no further than Westover, it will forever hold a special place in our hearts. It is perfect for anyone looking for a classic, Virginia location, with beautiful river views, architecture, and history. Owners Andrea and Rob were so generous, helpful, and flexible in every aspect. The extra effort in coordinating all vendors and items needed for an "off-site" wedding was 100% worth it (and we were able to use vendors from both Richmond and Williamsburg/VA Beach). We, our families, and our 350+ guests were all very pleased. With only a handful of weddings per year, the majority of our guests had never visited Westover and still talk about what a wonderful evening it was. One of our favorite wedding day memories was digging up the bourbon we had buried in Westover's garden (which the Erda's graciously allowed) with our families and wedding party, and sharing a special toast before the reception! My biggest worry was the weather, but thankfully our October wedding day was clear and warm. Weddings can be stressful and not everything turns out as planned, but we can 100% say that our entire experience with Westover could not have been better. Courtney N.
