Location! Location! Location! Finding a nontraditional venue in Franklin County, PA and surrounding area

Sachs Bridge; Gettysburg, PA, Adams County

You’re engaged. You’re planning your wedding. You have zero interest in getting married in a church. So what now? Maybe you like the barn wedding theme, maybe you don’t. Maybe you like the wide open outdoors, maybe you don’t. Maybe you need a place where you can accommodate a large guest list, maybe you don’t. Whatever you’re looking for, I have compiled a very short list of wedding venues in the Franklin County, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas. I will add to this list as I am made aware of other venues. (Feel free to contact me with other locations not on this list) Where I can, I’ve attached the Facebook link of the venue, from there you will be able to view photos and contact information. If a Facebook link is not available, I’ve tried to attach a website. If a link is not available, you can do what our grandparents did and pick up the phone! (I know, I know, nobody uses their phone to call anymore)

So here’s my list as of March 12, 2019. As I mentioned before, feel free to contact me with any other venues you are aware of that will accommodate a wedding ceremony. I, and my potential clients, would love to know about them! By the way, these are in no particular order.

There are a few country clubs in the area and you can always call to see if any of them will allow non-members to book weddings. Also, if you know of any other state parks that have a nice location for a wedding ceremony, check to see who manages that particular park and call them to check on availability. And of course, you can always find more wedding venue locations on sites like https://www.weddingwire.com/

If you know of more, please feel free to add their Facebook link to the comments or send me a private message. I’ll be sure to check them out and add them to this list!

Until next time,
