Farm at Eagles Ridge
One of the best Lancaster county wedding venues is Farm at Eagles Ridge. Situated on more than 100 acres of beautiful farmland, this venue is truly breathtaking and scenic almost everywhere you look.
It’s a chic venue that truly feels romantic, and it’s also an overall tranquil venue, making it perfect for those who want something a little more private. The actual event will take place in a gorgeous rustic barn with vaulted ceilings and chandeliers to give it an elegant edge.
This is one of the top barn wedding venues in Lancaster PA!
I was honored to be able to photograph a wedding here for Nicole and Tyler. Check out some photos of the venue from their wedding below! Because of the size of the space, it’s super easy to make it uniquely yours.
Featuring a 9,000-square-foot barn, Bluestone Estate is the perfect place for anyone looking for a rustic feel with luxurious elements. The beautiful stone wall within the barn serves as the perfect backdrop for your special day.
This estate is not only fully climate-controlled (so you don’t have to worry about the weather on your wedding day), but it also has a suite and a lounge that is sure to keep you comfortable while you wait to say I do!

Cork Factory Hotel
Another of the best wedding venues in Lancaster PA is the Cork Factory Hotel. Yes, this is actually right at a hotel, but it’s a beautiful venue featuring a chic restaurant and wedding/event space. Plus, they even offer catering in-house and will even make your wedding cake if you want.
The main ballroom at the Cork Factory Hotel features exposed wooden beams on the ceiling, unique rustic chandeliers, and brick walls, which serve as a great backdrop for imagery.
If extra space is needed, there’s also the parlor which adjoins the ballroom. They take the pain out of wedding planning, as they have different floor plan templates and will help you choose the one best for your wedding.

Like Cork Factory Hotel, Wyndridge Farm offers multiple wedding services to make the day even easier for you! They have a culinary team, wedding coordinators, and even brewers that can help make your day perfect. All you have to do is hire your wedding photographer (ahem, me).

Moonstone Manor has been voted one of Pennsylvania’s most romantic wedding venues, and it is clear to see why. Not only is it a wedding venue, but it is also a bed and breakfast, so you don’t have to worry about driving back and forth from your hotel to your venue.
