From the moment we first visited Dover Hall, we knew it was the one. The picturesque castle setting was absolutely magical and provided a breathtaking backdrop for our ceremony and reception. The well-maintained gardens, and the exquisite architecture of the venue created a romantic atmosphere that left our guests in awe.

One of the standout features of Dover Hall is its versatility. Whether you envision an intimate garden wedding, a reflection pool dream or a grand indoor celebration, this venue can accommodate it all. We opted for an outdoor ceremony by the pool, followed by a reception in their elegant ballroom. The seamless transition between spaces was expertly managed, and it added to the overall flow and enjoyment of our wedding day.

The venue’s staff were simply exceptional. From our first meeting with their wedding coordinator to the day of our event, they were attentive, professional, and genuinely invested in making our day perfect. They took care of every detail, ensuring that everything ran smoothly, allowing us to focus on savoring every moment with our loved ones.

Speaking of details, the cuisine provided by their in-house catering team was beyond delicious. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the food, and neither could we. The menu was customizable, and Dover Hall accommodated any of our guests dietary preferences without hesitation.

Another highlight was the stunning bridal suite and groom's billiards getting-ready rooms. It was not only spacious but also beautifully decorated, providing a luxurious and comfortable space for each bridal party to get ready. Also, the staff provided food and drinks that we could enjoy, which were perfect!

Our wedding at Dover Hall was an absolute fairytale. The memories we created there will be cherished for a lifetime, and we are forever grateful for the incredible experience they provided. If you're searching for a wedding venue that combines natural beauty, versatility, outstanding service, and an unforgettable atmosphere, look no further. Thank you Dover Hall for making our wedding day incredibly special!

Dover Hall is is such an amazing venue and only made better by the staff and service. My wife and I were married here in March 2023 and could not have asked for a better venue. From the moment we toured Dover Hall back in 2022, we knew this would be the place for us. From the beginning, Rachel was such a pleasure to work with and we can't say enough great things about her. As we approached our date, Silvia came on-board and took the lead without hesitation. She was instrumental in organizing all of our details and worked so well with our Planner and the rest of our vendors.

The week of the wedding was made so much easier with the help and guidance of both Silvia and Rachel, along with the rest of the Dover Hall staff. Each and every one of them was kind, personable, knowledgeable, and kept our thoughts and wishes at the top of their priority from Day 1.

The wedding itself was truly amazing; everything we had dreamed of and more. From the outdoor ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to the ballroom reception, all of the logistics of the day were handled and executed flawlessly. The food was absolutely amazing and I cannot understate how many compliments we received from our guests. It only added to the amazing night they helped us pull off; we could not have had the wedding of our dreams without Dover Hall!!!
