    Fairy tale wedding

    My husband got married on October 7th of this year and it was the best day of our lives. We continue to talk about our wedding day and it’s almost a month later! Dawn and Brian were amazing through everything. Every detail was taken care of and we didn’t have to worry about ANYTHING! We can honestly say we remember everything about our wedding day and will remember it for years to come!!!!

    I cannot sing enough praises about SHG!! Every person we came into contact with at the venue was amazing! Dawn and Brian are very easy to get a hold of and we’re very helpful in guiding us though planning our big day. Liz and Charlie were our day of coordinators and they worked really hard to keep my mind at ease all weekend. We had our dog as or flower girl and then we sent her off with Micah to spend the night with the Waltmans! If we had to do it all again, I would still chose SHG and our guest would agree. Everyone cannot stop talking about how great the staff was and how beautiful the venue was. I highly recommend Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens

    Wonderful doesn't even begin to cover this venue and their staff.

    Dawn, Brian, Megan and the other staff at the Homestead were a pleasure to work with. Every question was answered quickly. They all made sure the day went as smooth as possible. I cannot begin to thank them all enough for their help and support leading up to and including the day of the wedding. Our coordinator Ginger Glass was just as pleasant to work with and helped ease some of the stress.

    I would recommend this venue in a heartbeat. The venue is straight out of a rustic fairy tale and you are treated like family not just another bride.

    Absolutely amazing

    Stoltzfus Homestead & Gardens is the BEST venue you could ever go with! Where to even begin... First, my family and I are located in Maryland. I had to be married in front of a weeping willow tree, so the hunt was on! We visited 4-5 venues within Maryland, but there was always an issue. From not enough room for our guests, to not being able to get married by the Willow tree. So I decided to venture out. Thanks to WeddingWire, Stoltzfus came across my screen. The reviews were great, and I noticed right away that there were Weeping Willows on the property. When I emailed Stoltzfus, Dawn (owner) responded within a day. She was excited to tell me all about their venue, what they offered and how they had multiple weeping willows for me to choose from. She even sent me pictures of them all! When my mom, and my fiancé Joey headed up to see the property (3 1/2 hour drive), Dawn was SO flexible when it came to a time, especially knowing we were coming from so far away. INSTANTLY we were blown away by their venue. The grounds themselves were breathtaking. I loved how they had two barns, one for the reception, and one for the ceremony (if it rained and you couldn't get married outside). Everything was just beautiful. We walked around the property checking out all the weeping willows, there were a bunch! Leaving, we knew they were the venue we had been looking for. We didn't decide on the marriage spot until about a month before the wedding since I wanted to see the trees in full bloom. Throughout the entire process, Dawn and her team made EVERYTHING go as smoothly as possible, communication was constant, and I never felt like I didn't know what was going on. She had answers to everything. being a "destination" wedding, I was really feeling the pressure, but Dawn made me feel so comfortable. I loved how the florist (Petals & pearls, Megan, Dawns daughter) and the bar tenders (Brian Waltman, Dawns Husband), were onsite. We took a few trips back up over the course of the year before the wedding to get details together. I was always able to coordinate with them as well, so that we all were meeting at the same time, and not making extra trips. Dawn and her team made sure that the spot I chose by the willow tree was PERFECT. They did everything in their power to make sure that the area itself was perfect. The grass was beautiful, the trees and shrubs were green and Brian himself even took out some dead shrubs so that it all flowed so nicely for my big day!! On my wedding day, they always say that no day goes perfectly, but I am here to tell you MINE DID!!! Dawn and her team made sure of that!!!! When we woke up the morning of my big day, it was sprinkling, and the forecast showed afternoon showers. Dawn and Brian both assured me that everything was going to be okay. Brian waited until the last possible second before setting up our benches, which luckily the rain completely held off until dinner!!! From that very morning, till our night was over, everything was perfect. They never made it feel rushed, Dawn and Brian were there to support us, and our guests on our big day. They made you feel like you were family. This venue and their staff is absolutely the most kind hearted and giving people you will meet. You would not be disappointed in choosing them to be your venue!!!!

    Syni and Joey, you guys are just awesome! Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a thorough review. It is helpful to couples who are checking out venues. You guys were just spectacular to work with. Kind, gracious, funny - We love that you both LOVED your day. That's why I often cry at the end of the day. I am sad to see my sweet couples leave after such a long time of having the privilege of working with them, but my heart is also so full when their day is everything they ever dreamed. We will miss you guys terribly!!!! Make sure you stay in touch dear bride!

    Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens was a perfect setting for my daughter's wedding reception. The highly professional staff stepped us through all of the planning details and made sure nothing was left hanging. They were very helpful in recommending vendors to provide catering, flowers, and music. Every stage of the reception, from the lovely outdoor cocktail party, to "First Look", to the meal and all the speeches and toasts, all of it went off without a hitch. I can highly recommend this venue with no hesitation!

    My husband and I got married at the Stoltzfus Homestead in June 2018 and it was truly the best day of our lives. The Homestead was the first and only venue we looked at and from the moment we stepped on the property we knew it was the one! There are two great, beautiful barns and the lawns are gorgeous and well cared for. We loved the idea of having lawn games, a fire pit, Adirondack chairs, etc. to offer something besides the usual dancing at a wedding. It really allowed for our guests (and us!) to relax and enjoy the time. We received so many compliments after the wedding that it was “the best wedding they had ever been to”. We can’t tell you how amazing that felt to hear! Part of what made the whole wedding planning process easier at the Stoltzfus Homestead was that they work with various partner vendors. It really gave us a great platform to make our wedding day our own without starting from square - one less stress we had to worry about! Dawn was the absolute best to work with – always responding to my many emails with kindness and promptness. Brian, Liz and Charlie were also so supportive and worked so hard to make sure our day was everything we wanted and more. My husband and I wish we could relive that day over and over again – all thanks to the wonderful people at the Stoltzfus Homestead! Thank you for allowing us to have the most magical day!!!

    My husband and I married at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens in May 2018 and it was truly the best day we could have ever imagined. The grounds are beautiful and impeccably cared for. The barns are uniquely stunning and have so much character. Over a month later, we still continue to receive compliments from our guests on how much they loved the venue.

    We could not have planned a more perfect day without our coordinator, Dawn, who helped us every step of the way (from our very first visit in early 2017). Dawn was responsive, honest, and truly cared about making the experience as stress free as possible. No matter how many times I emailed, I always received a swift and gracious reply,

    Her and Brian, the property manager, made our wedding so memorable and special. They are truly the nicest people, and their #1 priority is making the day special, enjoyable, and 100% stress-free for the bride and groom. If you have any qualms or nerves about anything (weather, family, last minute changes, etc.), they will put you at ease and make sure you have nothing to worry about! Any couple that chooses to marry at Stoltzfus is in AMAZING hands. We will miss working with them!

    All in all, we can't speak more positively about our wedding experience and wish we could re-live it all over again. This place is truly a gem in every way!

    I cannot begin to express my appreciation and satisfaction with this venue! Dawn and her team were absolutely amazing! They answered my questions promptly, remembered my name and story each time I dropped in, and continually helped me have the wedding I was dreaming of! They also orchestrated a special surprise from my new husband to me during our ceremony! The venue itself was gorgeous and everything ran so smoothly. Our guests are STILL talking (weeks later) about how much fun they had!! I couldn't have been happier and I really cannot say enough about how much I absolutely LOVED every moment of my day!! Thank you, Dawn, Megan, Pam... and staff!!!!

    What an incredible venue and team of folks that run the Homestead. We just got married at the end of April and it was absolutely wonderful! I was nervous at first to choose a location where you needed to obtain your vendors, BUT do not fear - Dawn the Wedding Consultant makes life beyond easy. Every vendor they recommended was not only kind they were also cost-efficient! Everyone told me how stressful it would be planning a wedding and getting everyone on the same page on the day-of but it was truly a stress-free experience. The vendors all know Dawn and Brian and they work together like a well-oiled machine! You should definitely book here, my friends.

    My son just got married at Stoltzfus Homestead and it was a picture perfect day. The venue is gorgeous. Not just the Grand Barn but the entire property from the ceremony site, the bride's suite, the corn crib, and the lawn where we had our hors d'oeuvre hour. The reception was well received because the guests were able to dance, sit at the bon fire, play lawn games or sit in the barn. Having so many options kept everyone entertained The entire staff was a breeze to work with from start to finish. If you need a venue for any event I highly recommend Stoltfuz!

    Oh the Homestead! The most beautiful and perfect venue for our fall wedding! My fiancé and I got engaged in July of 2017 and immediately began looking for the perfect venue in Lancaster. We found Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens online and knew we needed to schedule a visit (as the pictures online were amazing). Dawn Waltman replied to our email very promptly and was so flexible in scheduling a day and time to show us the venue. When we arrived to the Homestead, we immediately fell in love with the beauty of the preserved barns, silo, flowers/plants, pond and corn crib! When we left the Homestead, we knew this was the place where we wanted to get married. We were sold on its beauty immediately!!
    We worked with Dawn Waltman, who is the absolute definition of AMAZING! She listened to us and respected all of our wants and desires for our wedding and made it happen! We were at ease on our wedding day because we knew Dawn had everything under control! There was no stress and we could actually enjoy our special day! Hooray! Such a blessing!
    We strongly encourage you to check out Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens for your wedding, family gathering, company picnic, etc.! The staff are amazing to work with and so, so, SO good at what they do!
    Thank you Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens for making our dream wedding come true!

    When we started looking for a venue, we were so excited that Stoltzfus Homestead & Gardens had our date available! From the very beginning Dawn was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable in what they’ve seen that works and things that don’t. They have a list of vendors that they work with on a regular basis and we found that very helpful! We chose all of our vendors from that list and could not be happier! Our wedding day was perfect and stress free! Their coordinators are so detailed and organized that we didn’t have to worry about anything. The tobacco barn and grand barn are absolutely beautiful. We are so happy that we chose Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens for our wedding day, could not be happier!

    My husband and I chose Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens, because it fit exactly what we were looking for. The rustic barns, and the country backdrop was everything that we could ever ask for. Dawn & Brian Waltman, the owners, were very flexible and were very helpful. There wasn't one thing that was out of place, or that we were not happy with. We would definitely recommend them to another couple!

    The Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens venue for our daughter's wedding was more than we could have dreamed of for her day. The grounds are pristinely kept and offer a variety of beautifully designed spaces for guests to enjoy. Having a wedding in their restored tobacco barn was a perfect venue for the romantic, rustic theme that my daughter wanted. It was decorated amazingly by their florist (Pearls and Petals.)
    The whole day went smoothly because of Dawn and Brian, the owners. We didn't have to worry about anything. You can trust their professionalism and years of experience to give you a day to remember! Family and friends are still talking about what a great day it was. And it was all because of this amazing venue and staff.

    Everything about this venue and the people who run it was top notch. Being the father of the bride, I had a very critical eye on everything because it was arguably the best day in my daughter's life and the venue and people surrounding and supporting her amazing day were a big part of making it so special. I look forward to any opportunity to recommend Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens because everything about our experience there was absolutely incredible.

    From the moment we stepped onto the beautiful Homestead property and met Brian and Dawn we knew that we would be totally taken care before, during and after my daughter's wedding. They were supportive, responsive and patient with our many questions and open to all ideas in making her vision for the day come to fruition. Our "day of" coordinator was amazing and took great care to make sure that every detail was as it should be. She had a happy and calming demeanor that radiated to all of us. We used several of the suggested vendors on their list with confidence as the Homestead has such a high standard and only recommends the best. Our family received many comments and texts the following day from guests saying they had never been to such an amazing wedding or venue. I highly recommend Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens!

    Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens without a doubt has the most beautiful and well kept grounds of all the venues we visited in our search for the perfect setting for our daughters wedding. I am a landscaper by profession, and was very impressed with the perfectly manicured lawns and landscaped beds. Dawn and Brian Waltman were wonderful to work with. Their recommendations on vendors and ideas were so helpful in planning the perfect day.

    Stoltzfus was the 4th wedding venue we looked at when choosing where to get married for our august wedding and we knew it was the right choice within 5 minutes of being on the homestead. It was the perfect combination of rustic, classy and causal all in one. We worked closely with Dawn, Brian and Megan Waltman and our day of coordinator also named Dawn who helped us come up with the most perfect day. As a couple who had no idea where to begin with wedding planning Stoltzfus made the process easy and fun! We cannot say enough good things about this venue and team. If we could do the entire thing over again we wouldn't change a thing!!! <3

    Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens is everything you need for a wedding venue. We felt so blessed to have Dawn and Brian coordinating everything. I knew from the start of rehearsal practice that we had nothing to worry about. The peace and comfort that knowing Nina and Jerry's wedding was in such good hands was the best feeling in the world. Thank you so much for everything you did with such class and kindness to last a lifetime. Donna Picarelli

    We had a perfect wedding experience at Stoltzfuz Homestead. The venue is simply lovely with immaculate grounds and includes a main barn and a smaller one perfect for cocktails or as a place to exchange vows, or use one of the two outdoor staging areas as we did. There's also a nice shaded garden which is where we had our cocktails. The bridal and groomsmen's rooms were very nice. The Main Barn is so beautiful in a simply elegant way that we did very little decorating other than centerpieces and the place looked amazing. Weather cooperated and we were able to dine with barn doors open, allowing guests to move easily between reception activities inside and out. Beautiful fire pit surrounded by soft comfortable chairs. We used own caterer, but I'm sure those on the venue's preferred list is of the highest quality, like everything else here

    Dawn and Brian were perfect hosts, providing a most personable and gentle hand to keep everything on track and taking care of every conceivable detail, from picking up lunch to suggesting to my wife, the mother-of-the-bride, to quietly take in the venue before the start of festivities. A great venue staffed by great people

    David thank you so much for your review! Your family was a dream. Your daughter has such an incredible creative, yet detailed mind and it was truly fun to work with her throughout the process of planning her wedding day. To see your daughter and son-in-law embrace the day and treasure every moment was so wonderful to witness. All the best!

    Every person that we worked with at this venue was wonderful. From every detail to trying to fulfill our crazy ideas, everyone was very professional and helpful. They all made my daughter's day everything she dreamed of.

    Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens is such an amazing place with very amazing people. We looked at a couple venues before visiting the Homestead and I knew as soon as we arrived that this was the place we wanted to get married. We fell in love with the beautiful grounds and landscaping, the old restored barns, the history, the fire pit – it immediately felt special to us. As a very detail-oriented/stressed bride I had TONS of questions, but Dawn W. was there to help me every step of the way. I must have sent the poor woman hundreds of emails and she responded to each one with ease. She made the entire process easy and fun; she truly is an amazing person.

    The day of our wedding finally came and our day of event coordinator “the other Dawn B.” made sure everything went smoothly. There were a couple hiccups along the way but Dawn and her team went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and that I was as stress free as possible. She kept everyone on schedule, but also allowed my “husband” and I to have some special time to ourselves in the mix of all chaos – which was very important to us on our wedding day. Everyone on staff was amazing and I really appreciate everyone who helped us on our special day. The venue itself was gorgeous and they made every detail of our special day come true. This is truly an amazing place and the people who work there are very special people. I would highly recommend this venue to everyone. They will make your dreams come true and your day and day to remember.

    Samantha, I had to laugh when I read your review where you described yourself as a "detail oriented - stressed bride"! I thought it was a pleasure to work with you and I truly welcomed your questions! I love putting brides at ease as they plan for their wedding day and despite all of your worries, you truly trusted us to fulfill the vision for your day. We are very well aware that is not an easy thing to do, but thank you! Thank you for trusting us! Thank you for allowing us to work as a team and bring your vision to life. I will NEVER forget you walking into the Grand Barn when we did the reveal with you and Uriah and you said, "This is everything I every dreamed and more." It made my heart smile!!! All the best to you both!

    We held our daughter's wedding at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens and it was the most beautiful event! From the time that we chose the venue to the actual day we were treated like family and they were so efficient and helpful with all aspects. We were able to relax and enjoy the entire experience because of the entire staff at the venue. We also had Dawn officiate the wedding and it was the most beautiful and meaningful ceremony. We highly recommend using this venue ... it was amazing!!!!
