Wedding Season Part 2: Lancaster County as a Destination

Lancaster county is known for its attractions, quaint villages, rolling hills and scenic farmland. For decades it has been a trendy wedding destination for people all over the northeast united states. This has created a local industry of wedding venues, catering companies, bridal and dress shops and wedding photographers. In this post I will highlight some of the local views and service providers.

Breathtaking sights and scenery:

Most of the areas out of town visitors are coming directly from NYC. The charming greenspaces of farmland and relaxing vibes are what keep people coming from the hustle and bustle of city life. Many engaged couples find themselves taking advantage of the 28 historic covered bridges scattered across the county. These are perfect backdrops for wedding pictures, engagement photos and sometimes the surrounding parks are ideal venues for the ceremony.

Some destination wedding seekers find themselves in what was voted the "coolest small town in America", Lititz, PA. Lititz is known for its historic brick buildings, parks, chocolate factory and strong arts and music scene. There are plenty of great places to stay nearby with nightlife or relaxation for any out-of-town visitors for wedding parties.

One of Lancasters biggest attractions especially for couples coming from New York is the Amish community. The farmlands of Amish communities provide great venue options, some of which offer opportunities for carriage or buggy rides which make a great addition to any wedding ceremony.

One of Lancaster City's favorite venues is the Cork Factory Hotel. It is a destination in its own right with beautiful event spaces and comfortable and charming accommodations.
