We feel extremely blessed to work with the most joyful & kind couples and we feel just the same about the venues they choose. Not only are the grounds and decor beautiful, but the staff are always excellent to work with. We’ve put together a list of our top 5 venues we absolutely LOVE to capture weddings at and the reasons why we chose them to be on the list. If you’re just beginning to plan your wedding, we’d love for you to look into these venues and even schedule a tour. We promise you will not be disappointed!
- The Booking House
Located in Manheim, PA, the 1884 cigar warehouse has tons of space (3 floors!) to hold up to 250 people. We love the natural light, the exposed brick, wooden beams, and the beautiful (and cool) spaces for the bride and groom to get ready in. The TBH logo out front is also a really neat backdrop for photos. The staff is always very accommodating and super helpful on a wedding day. Visit their website to learn about the history and what sets them apart from other venues in the area. Oh, and check out Brittany & Travis’ wedding featured on Rock N Roll Bride!
- Bear Mill Estate
You may have seen us post about this venue before as being one of our most favorite locations, and it’s still true to this day. With every wedding we capture at Bear Mill Estate, it just never gets old. It’s located in Denver, PA and has a pleasant mix of old-world charm & natural beauty. The landscaping is very well maintained and the photo opportunities are endless! The bridal suite is filled with natural light and the mill is a really neat place for the groom and his guys to hang out and relax. Kerry, the owner, and his staff are always great to work with. Kerry even offers floral services and creates the most stunning bouquets!
- Cork Factory Hotel
Here we are again, obsessing over the exposed brick. Cork Factory Hotel located in Lancaster, PA offers much more than that, though. The dreamy ballroom where most ceremonies and receptions are held, is so romantic and warm. This venue even has their own caterer, bakery, and coordinators on staff. Speaking of food, every time we’ve eaten a meal from the Cork Factory, we’ve been so pleased. Their in-house culinary team is truly skilled at preparing the most delicious meal for you and your guests.
- Brandywine Manor House
Close to Philadelphia and Lancaster, this venue is located in Honey Brook, PA. They offer several different outdoor (and indoor) locations to hold your ceremony. Some of our favorite areas of BMH that make the most beautiful backdrops are the gardens, the 1740’s house, the waterfall, and the matured trees. This venue is truly elegantly rustic and the staff are just the sweetest!
- Tulpehocken Manor and Estate
We couldn’t share our top 5 list of venues without including one from close to home; Tulephocken Manor and Estate located in Myerstown, PA. This venue is perfect for all types of weddings with its charm and natural beauty. The manor was built in 1769, and it was even believed that George Washington stayed there on three separate occasions. How neat is that?! You’ll definitely want to read about the history of the venue and schedule a tour with Karen. (She’s a doll!)
Once you reserve your venue, we would love to sit down with you or schedule a FaceTime chat to learn all about your story. We really enjoy getting to know our couples personally, and for them to get to know just as much about us. We want you feeling comfortable and relaxed while we’re capturing your engaged season of life as well as your wedding day. Get in touch with us at www.soulfocusmedia.com or (717) 422-6857. We are so grateful for you considering us and can’t wait to talk further!
