Recently I’ve noticed a fun wedding trend. Couples from the Harrisburg/Philadelphia/Baltimore area are coming to Lancaster to get married. Which is great! Lancaster has many, many beautiful wedding venues. I thought I would profile a few to help 2014 brides narrow down their search. Here are the locations where I love to shoot and even more will be added after this busy wedding season!
Lime Spring Farms – Lime Spring is very beautiful for an outside wedding. This venue is known for it’s large barn that is painted with a giant black and white rooster. Lime Spring also has two houses for the bride and groom to get ready in and they are very well decorated and great for photos. http://www.weddingvenueslancaster.com/ Here is the blog post for the wedding I captured there last year http://kylenelynn.com/aly-kyle-kylene-lynn-wedding-photography/ This wedding was also featured in Susquehanna Style Magazine.
Inn at Leola Village (Casa di Fiori) – This is an inside location but it’s very beautiful with grand wooden doors that open to the shared ceremony/reception space. Grooms really enjoy the pool table in their getting ready area. I will be shooting here in the Fall. http://www.theinnatleolavillage.com/wedding.html
Lauxmont Farms – This is in Wrightsville, PA and it overlooks the Susquehanna River. Very pretty grounds with several different areas to consider having an outside ceremony and reception. I am capturing a wedding here in June. http://www.lauxmontweddings.com/
Cork Factory Hotel – This is another beautiful inside location. Very modern and the food is very good here (it’s attached to a restaurant!) This is a great location if you are having a lot of out of town guests who can stay right in the hotel after the wedding. http://www.corkfactoryhotel.com/lancasterweddings/
The Country Barn – If you’re looking for a barn wedding, I love the loft space at The Country Barn. It’s a very large space, with pretty lanterns hanging from the ceiling and long farm-style banquet tables. They have a bed and breakfast house that can be used for outside photos and it’s very classic and beautiful. http://countrybarnmarket.com/ I captured a wedding there June of last year that you can see here – http://kylenelynn.com/meg-george-kylene-lynn-wedding-photography/
