Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens is a rustic wedding venue located in Gordonville, Pennsylvania. Dating back to the 18th century, this farm boasts several picturesque buildings that were built in the 19th and 20th centuries. The beautifully preserved historic barn offers a romantic and private setting where newlyweds and their loved ones can celebrate. The spacious venue features an intimate vibe that is ideal for weddings of all sizes.

Facilities and Capacity

There are several indoor and outdoor event spaces across the property at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens where couples can host their wedding. The Tobacco Barn, which was built in the 1900s, offers a rustic yet elegant backdrop for ceremonies. It retains much of its original charm and features louvers and exposed rafters that were used to dry tobacco. This space can accommodate ceremonies of up to 160 guests. The larger Grand Barn is spacious enough for 160 attendees for a seated reception. Lovingly preserved, this historic building boasts soaring ceilings, wood walls, and intricate chandelier lighting. The barn doors open onto the courtyard area, which allows guests to enjoy the fresh country air. Couples wishing to host an outdoor event can reserve the Wedding Gardens, which provide an idyllic space for unforgettable nuptials. Surrounded by beautiful blooms, this area is suitable for up to 160 seated guests.

Also located on the property are two dressing suites for soon-to-be newlyweds and their wedding party to get ready before the festivities.

    If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

    here do I begin.....my daughter knew Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens was the place she wanted to be married the second she stepped foot on the property. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful, full of color and texture, just stunning. The two restored barns for the ceremony and reception are breathtaking. The wedding just took place this past Saturday and I could not wait to share my review. If you are thinking about having your wedding here, DO IT!! Their team is so professional and knowledgeable and everything happens without a hitch, they have their system down! I want to mention in particular Dawn who was so helpful along the 2 year planning process. Brian who was just calm and amazing the day off for both property and bartending. Chela who was our day of coordinator, don't know what we would have done without her and her pleasant and calm demeanor and her ability to keep everyone straight and on the timeline. I have control issues, LOL, but, didn't even think twice once explaining my daughter's vision for her decor and then handing off our decor. I couldn't wait to see how they utilized it and decorated everything and boy, it did not disappoint. All of our guests commented about how stunning everything was. As I danced away on the dancefloor, I looked at the tables and not one single person was still at their table, they were dancing, playing lawn games, walking the beautiful property or relaxing around the fire. That is the sign of a GREAT reception. I will end with saying that the entire day from start to finish was stress free, perfect in every way and truly magical.

    Lisa, seeing your smiling face on your profile photo makes me smile!!! What a mom!!! From the very beginning we knew your were the kind of supportive mother that brides long for. Fun, creative, organized and energetic - that's you! We truly appreciated the opportunity to host your daughter's wedding at the Homestead. She was so fun!!!! She took great delight in everything that happened throughout the day and didn't miss a thing, but instead soaked it all up to treasure for a lifetime. We will miss the two of you so much! You were on our calendar for so long and now we can't believe the wedding day has come and gone. We wish only God's very best as your family celebrates their first holiday season with your daughter and son-in-law as Mr. and Mrs. !!!

    Amazing!!!!

    We had our wedding at Stoltzfus in June 2022 and it was truly a perfect day. We first toured the Homestead in Jan 2021 and from that point on, we knew this was the perfect venue. Brian took the time to show us around and got us comfortable with the property and offerings. It was also the dead of winter but was clear the venue would be beautiful in the spring. We signed the contract very soon after our first visit and from that point on we were in good hands. All of our vendors came recommended from Dawn and we loved each and every one of them. The open houses were above and beyond and allowed us to visualize all the potential possibilities for our wedding. Our wedding day turned out absolutely perfect and I credit that to a beautiful venue and an amazing team of people. Thank you to everybody who made our day so special!

    Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens's reply:

    Kimberly,
    We knew from the beginning that you would be a gem to work with and our instincts proved us right! We love that you came to both Open Houses before the wedding to really get to know your vendors and to gather ideas for wedding day. Your choices were clear and well thought out and that showed as your wedding day unfolded. So incredibly proud of the job you and did! We appreciate you trusting us enough to take our advice for your wedding day. It was so special! We miss you guys and hope you come back to visit!! Blessings!
