Beautiful and historic venue!

Elizabeth Furnace is a spectacular wedding venue! A historic property that has been beautifully restored and maintained, it offers multiple gorgeous spaces that will make your wedding unique no matter what time of year or what the weather.

We had planned a May wedding, having visited and seen the lovely gardens in bloom. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to change the date to November. And it was still beautiful. We had our ceremony in the tiered garden behind the historic house. The garden is surrounded by an old stone wall and a wing of the house that is topped by a bell tower. When our vows were completed, the bell was rung to announce the the happy news. The garden is also perfect for cocktails (there’s a bar built into the stone wing, right below the bell tower) and lawn games. We had a small wedding, and the weather was warm, so we ate out in the garden as well. The stone walls were illuminated all around us, and we added some string lights over the table. It was magical. (An old stone outhouse has even been converted into two modern restrooms.)

Had it rained or been cold, we could have chosen from two great options. The stables of the property have been converted into a first-class wedding space. There’s a kitchen for the caterer, a modern dressing room for the bride with all the mirrors and comforts one could want. The smooth concrete floor is perfect for dancing, and the space, with its exposed stone walls, is lovely.

The Charcoal Barn (the property was an iron furnace that produced munitions for the Revolutionary War) is a more rustic space, but also beautiful. We would have happily used it for our ceremony.

Our guests loved exploring the historic property which offers many features that made for great photo opportunities.

EF best wedding venue

EF was as perfect as any wedding could ever host. The guest were happy, the service, food and grounds were amazing. Everything was on time and stress free. It was seamless service in a beautiful setting. JDK staff pulled off a day of a life time. A spacious venue but with a cozy feel. Plus the luck of good weather, what more can you ask for?

Wedding of my Dreams!

Choosing Elizabeth Furnace as our wedding venue was the best decision we could have made! Our entire experience, from the initial planning to the big day itself, exceeded all our expectations, resulting in an experience that was nothing short of perfection. The property itself is a true gem – meticulously manicured and unlike anything else in the area. Its unique blend of elegant, gardenesque charm and contemporary touches left us in awe. From the beautifully appointed bridal suite and cozy groom's suite to the enchanting gardens and the classy reception space, this venue was a dream come true. The venue also offered a multitude of unique photo opportunities around every corner, ensuring that our wedding album is filled with stunning memories against a backdrop of natural beauty and architectural elegance. One of the things we loved most was the seamless and all-inclusive experience provided by JDK for catering. Working with Alyssa, both for the venue and catering, was an absolute pleasure. Her unwavering attention to detail, warm and approachable demeanor, and genuine excitement to be part of our wedding day made all the difference. Elizabeth Furnace made our wedding day truly unforgettable. It's a place where timeless beauty meets modern elegance, and we couldn't be happier with our choice. If you're looking for a venue that will surpass your wildest dreams, this is it. Thank you, Elizabeth Furnace, for helping us create a day we will cherish forever!
