Elizabeth Furnace Wedding Venue Open House

Jun 30, 2021

Alert! Alert! There is another gorgeous wedding venue in Central PA. If you are still on the hunt for your location for your wedding, Elizabeth Furnace wedding venue needs to be added to the list!

Timeless. Enchanting. Romantic.

I don’t think I could explain it any better than the owner did…“A timeless setting for endless merry-making!” Elizabeth Furnace is a registered national historic landmark. As you start your trek down the stairs from the parking lot, you are instantly transported back in time. The stonework cascading the whole way down the drive and the stunning gardens woven throughout the venue, this property is a beautiful sight to see for any guest.

There isn’t a bad place to look.

You are able to pick from several stunning locations for each part of your day. The ceremony can be tucked up at the top of the tiered gardens in the Garden Folly. This space creates a serene escape from the rest of the complex, where guests can watch as vows are exchanged. Guests are then able to head down the tiered garden for a magical cocktail hour, surrounded by several levels of gorgeous flowers and colonial-style architecture!
Finally, they will be welcomed across the path to the stunningly renovated Stiegel Stable for the reception. Back in the 1760s, this space used to be where the horses were kept, but since then, it has been fully renovated! It is a place for you and your guests to dine and dance the night away!
Even the back-up rain plan is a stunning option for a ceremony. Tucked at the bottom of the driveway, the original charcoal barn for the property has been retouched to give the couple an option for not only the ceremony but also for a rehearsal dinner location.

This venue truly has it all!

It’s honestly a photographer’s dream! Stunning pathways snake throughout the property and give endless locations for photos. With so much variety. Just look at all the beauty and charm in the images below.
This venue can hold up to 160 of your closest friends and family and gives each of them an experience they will never forget! I had the honor of being a part of the Open House for the Elizabeth Furnace wedding venue, and I am just in awe by this secret gem tucked back in Lititz, PA. It is hidden from the road and creates its’ own oasis as you drive back the road to the parking lot.

You are truly transported to a different time.

As couples walked the venue during the Open House, nothing but incredible things came out of their mouths. Planned Perfection and JDK Group put together an incredible day. I am so excited to say I will be there in 2022 for a stunning wedding, and I can’t wait for so many more! If you are looking for a timeless place as the backdrop for your special day, please take a tour of this stunning venue.

I promise you won’t be disappointed!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
