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.

The best place for a Lancaster Wedding!
We had our reception at Bluestone Estate in Willow Street. The venue owner/manager, Erin, was an absolute joy to work with. She was flexible and was there for anything we needed. They took such great care of us, it felt almost as if they were a part of our family. Customer Service is their middle name. They have breathtaking architecture and landscaping; we were able to get all of our photos done ON THE PROPERTY. This was so convenient for us, as we wanted to join our guests at cocktail hour, and we were able to simply walk on over after photos! 10/10 would recommend!Sent on 10/23/2019

Bluestone Estate is a phenomenal wedding venue! The grounds are beautiful. The venue itself is breathtaking with magnificent high ceilings with gleaming beams and fabulous original stone wall. It is so elegant. So many little details were considered in the construction, especially in the bride and groom dressing rooms. However, perhaps the best part is working with Erin. She is simply awesome. She is so warm, thoughtful, and caring it made planning my daughter's wedding so much easier. Thank you, Erin!Sent on 07/08/2020
