Erin Armstrong and Chad Vinelli realized that Erin’s family homestead would be the perfect setting for their own wedding ceremony and reception in 2007. Theirs was the first wedding in their new home, and they are excited to offer you a wedding experience like theirs in a historic venue destination. The main house was crafted circa 1770 from locally quarried bluestone, hence the name. The original stone barn was built in 1822. To preserve its character, refurbishment and rebuilding of the barn commenced in 2017.
Nestled in the heart of Lancaster County, Bluestone Ranch is a short 15 minutes from Lancaster and the Amtrak station, and 11 minutes from Strasburg.

Outstanding to work with
Bluestone is such a beautiful venue for a wedding. The space is extremely functional for all aspects of the event - the bride & groom suites, cocktail area, spacious reception area and outdoor space. Erin and her husband attended to every detail and were so flexible to work with. They made sure we had everything we needed to safely hold a wedding during the end of August with virus restrictions and then rain from the hurricane - it all was beautiful due to their willingness to whatever was needed to make the day spectacular!Sent on 09/03/2020

It was just breathtaking
When we first started looking for venues, I knew from being from Lancaster, I did not want a barn. After seeing Bluestone online, I fell in LOVE with it, just by the pictures and knew we needed to look at it. I didn't get that barn feel, that I was avoiding, it was just so modernized and stunning. We did an impromptu drive by after looking at another venue, and Erin and her husband were able to accommodate us and give us a tour. We fell in love with it all over again. It was secluded, and so quiet. The views are just absolutely beautiful, the property offers so much space for your day. The thought that they put into building the venue is just amazing. When we walked inside and saw the reception area, the high ceilings and beautiful light fixtures we knew it was it. We also loved the fact of the bridal suite and grooms lounge were there.. those rooms in itself were just beautiful and fun.
They were big enough to accommodate all of my girls and hair and make up artists and my husband with all his guys! Erin was such a pleasure to work with, answering all of our questions, working with our vendors and just bringing so much joy to our day!! We are so happy we found Bluestone and had our day there, because it was just perfect. Our guests are ranting and raving about the venue and space.Sent on 10/21/2020
