You will not find a better venue in Pennsylvania!
I truly cannot say enough good things about Excelsior and quite frankly a five star review just won’t do this place justice. My sister works in the wedding industry – when she told me to look into this venue, it was the best advice I could have received. I can promise you – you will NOT find a prettier venue in Pennsylvania. So much history comes along with this location and John & Kelly have done a tremendous job with their renovations. It is drop dead gorgeous! Do yourself a favor and schedule a tour so you can see for yourself.Sent on 06/26/2020
On top of the venue being absolutely stunning, the folks at Excelsior are even better. John, Kelly, and Kaitlyn are extremely professional, communicative, and empathetic. Now, we are one of the unlucky couples that had to navigate a wedding during COVID-19. As venues and vendors all over tried their best to navigate these difficult times in an ever-changing environment, Excelsior was at the top of our top-rated vendor list. They were so quick to offer jumping on a call to put our worries at ease and they remained empathetic throughout those tough times. Many other brides & grooms weren’t so lucky. They truly are such wonderful people and business owners and have created something truly special at Excelsior. I guarantee you will not be disappointed when you pick Excelsior when booking any big event! - Shivonne & Chris

Excelsior took our breath away at our first visit and we booked them the very next day! The unique combination of historical with the modern, industrial flair makes Excelsior unlike any other venue I've seen in Lancaster. It was great to have a one-stop shop to get ready, have the ceremony and reception. Our guests got to experience so many different settings as they moved from the ceremony on the terrace to cocktail hour in the catacombs, dinner in the empire room and dancing in the Grand Salon!Sent on 11/29/2019
Kaitlyn is INCREDIBLE! She not only runs the catering that is tied to the venue, she works with you to be sure every detail is taken care of and that your day will go smoothly from start to finish. Excelsior is beautifully taken care of, the food is delicious and the vendors that they work with are top notch!

The perfect wedding venue!
We honestly could not have picked a better wedding venue for our big day. Everything was run so smoothly, they really know what they are doing. Our guest kept commenting on how amazing all the spaces were as we moved through the building during the evening. Kelly, Kaitlyn and John were always very accommodating and really went above and beyond to make us feel special. As a couple in the architecture industry, this venue stood out to us from others with its modern industrial vibe and its integration with greenery throughout the space while still embracing the architectural history of the space. Considering everything including (tables, chairs, linens, etc) in the wedding price, I thought their prices were more than fair and choosing their venue really helped us stay on budget. It really was the perfect day and perfect venue and I have the staff at Excelsior to thank for that!Sent on 09/25/2019
