    My wedding at the Rock Ford Plantation was absolutely wonderful! Nancy was great in responding to me about all of my questions in a very quick and professional manner. The property is so nice and well maintained.
    All of my guests said the property and decorations matched the personalities of myself and my husband.
    We even had people dressed in costumes from the 1700s to match the history of the Rock Ford.
    It was perfect!
    Thank you Nancy and the Rock Ford staff!

    We just had our wedding here on 5/17/14 and I couldn't have been happier with our experience at Rock Ford. It is one of the more affordable places in Lancaster and it is so beautiful there. It's also very private since you have use of the whole grounds. It was so great to be able to set up on Friday and clean up on Sunday. It made our wedding day so much more enjoyable knowing we didn't have to rush everyone out at night so we could clean up. While it is a lot of work to set everything up and coordinate all of the vendors, it was definitely worth it. We saved a ton of money on the alcohol alone since we could supply our own and not have to buy it from the venue, which probably saved us a few thousand. No one at our wedding had ever been there before as most were from out of the area, but we got so many compliments. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how great it was there. Nancy is also very responsive through email or phone. And she is always willing to show you the barn whenever you need to see it for planning. I highly recommend Rock Ford!

    If you are looking for a unique location with real historical flair, check out the Rockford Plantation. I really like that there are multiple locations on the property, so you can have a farmhouse backdrop for the ceremony, inside dinner, and dancing under a tent. It is just outside of the city, but you really feel like you are in a spacious rolling farmland. The last time I was there to DJ a wedding, a group of deer actually came out of the trees during the ceremony and stayed in sight through the beginning of the cocktail hour.

    Beautiful location to photograph at. The staff is always friendly, helpful and very flexible with scheduling photo shoots when you call ahead. It is one of my personal favorite places to take photos!

    We have done many weddings at Rock Ford Plantations over the years and have always had good experiences. Very easy to work with. The setting is a beautiful historic barn that has a good floor plan and room for small events inside or larger events with a tent outside. It has been a pleasure working with them over the years.
