Did you pick a place for a rehearsal dinner yet? I honestly don’t know anything other than Iron Hill and Molly’s. Any recommendations?

@April_Fools_Bride:  I went to a wedding this summer that was at Cork Factory!  It is my absolute DREAM venue… but we are on such a tiny budget that we can’t use it. 🙁  But it’s spectacular…

Just to give you a heads up though, several guests at that wedding I went to, weren’t sure where the actual entrance was and got a little lost.  Are you having them come in through the porch area and park in that parking lot?  That’s what most people did but some (umm… like Fiance and me haha… oops) were confused and went the whole way through the hotel from another parking lot.  It all worked out, and we felt REALLY silly when we realized it, but just so you know. 🙂

  • Wedding: May 2011

I grew up just outside of Quakertown (309 – abt an hour north of Philly) and when my mom remarried, she rented out the Lakeside Inn at Lake Nockamixon. It was so extravagant! The grounds were beautiful to begin with, and the rooms and amenities were sleek and modern. They organized the shuttles and parking. The food was great and the service was excellent – they really bent over backward for anything my family needed (my fiance’s grandmother passed away on the drive back up north, and they helped me re-arrange my flights and deal with the airline). My mom lives in Chalfont and used a bridal shop that was near some really good bakery across from a church parking lot (ha! wish I could remember!) but they were really good, too. We’re going back there for Christmas to get her mother-of-the-bride outfit for my wedding.

@piglet_625: omg we just went to a wedding at the Foundry this past weekend – it is AMAZING! You are so lucky! And I’m not sure what the catering situation there is, but the food was INCREDIBLE. Mini cheesesteaks during happy hour? Fantastic!

The Cork Factory is amazing, one of my best friends actually lives in those apartments! We knew we wanted to get married outside, so we decided to go with Drumore Estate. It is a gorgeous location and perfect for our rustic theme.

  • Wedding: August 2012

I am in Lancaster, PA and we are checking the Cork Hotel out on Sat to see if it suits us. I have my heart set on Felicita’s gardens, I just don’t know if I should have our guests commute the 1hr 25 mins to get there.

I have 2 friends in this area that are starting out professionally in photography http://www.melaniamphotography.com/ and the other one I will have to find the business card and let you know.  Melania will be doing our engagement photos and our other friend will design all the invites, menus, programs etc PLUS do photos/videography on our wedding day for an extremely cheap price (its not b/c we know them price either) as soon as I get the info I will let you know.

  • Wedding: June 2011

A friend of mine who lives in Lancaster held her reception at the Barn at Overlook — it was absolutely lovely. Fitting for a fairly casual event, which theirs was.

I live in Boston now, but I grew up just outside Philly and that’s where we are getting married. Our venue is The Old Mill in Rose Valley. Our photog is Philadelphia-based J Shurak Photography.

A photographer in the vicinity of Lancaster that I would recommend checking out is Todd G Photography. (click on titles for photos) He is based in Dauphin. I came across him in my search and I honestly wish I could have hired him AND the photographer I ended up choosing. He is a stay-at-home dad and a very nice guy, his work is beautiful, and he’s really affordable.
