Brand New Elegant Wedding Venue! Located 10 miles from Bedford Exit on PA Turnpike

Whispering Hollow Estate is a private, 40-acre venue nestled in the rolling hills of central PA. We offer covered golf carts transportation for your guests around the property; across a covered bridge to our outdoor ceremony location, then down to our brand new 5500 sq. ft. Lodge (Reception Hall), which can seat up to 255 guests. It features a 20' stone fireplace with several 10 ft. windows on both sides of the room. We also offer a large covered back patio, as well as a deck off the front overlooking a tranquil pond and waterfall.

Our Bridal Suite is located in a rustic barn on the property and offers a hair/makeup room, bathroom, kitchen, and living room. Our Gentlemen's Lounge offers a pool table, movie theater room, restroom/shower, and gym. The guys can also take part in skeet shooting in the morning if they like!

Owner Kevin Leonardis designed and built this venue from his 30 years of experience in the wedding industry as a professional photographer. He has photographed over 500 weddings and visited venues all over the country, taking note of the special qualities that made certain venues stand out from the pack. He built this venue for couples desiring an whimsical, outside, or destination wedding in the mountains, but with the elegance and five-star amenities of a venue in the city.

    The finest wedding and reception I have ever attended!

    Beautiful diamond in the scenic peaceful countryside! The professional attention to detail by all from start to finish for our family wedding was simply amazing! The wedding area and reception hall with their stunning country charm were beyond any that I have have ever visited. The host staff were courteous and professional and seemed to be everywhere at once throughout our special evening. The food was plentiful and very good. There were roofed gold carts to shuttle people throughout the beautiful stoned walkways for the entire event. I have been officiating at weddings since 1982 and this was the finest, most accommodating and strikingly beautiful location which I have ever had the pleasure to officiate at! The attention to every detail which our host provided from start to finish made this the finest ceremony I have ever participated in! I would give this scenic sanctuary an enthusiastic 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! - Pastor James Braunns
