Excelsior Wedding Venue in Lancaster

Looking for a more personalized experience with your wedding venue? Excelsior Wedding Venue in Lancaster just might be the place to take your wedding to the next level!

Most wedding venues host multiple weddings and events all on the same day. Meaning there will be other guests along with brides and grooms walking around the same venue as you, on your special day. Excelsior is a wedding venue that is committed to hosting one couple, on one day. The best part? Excelsior’s unique space allows you to really take your wedding to the next level by allowing you to use the space to represent your style as a couple.  There are multiple locations, options, and details within the venue that allow you to show off your unique sense of style and make that wedding day of yours more than a dream come true!

Heavily inspired by downtown Lancaster’s vintage charm, Excelsior is a multifaceted property with an eclectic event space. The multifaceted space at Excelsior in Lancaster honors classic architecture blended with modern design! Much like many of the other Philadelphia area wedding venues that I discuss here, Excelsior is also a national historical property.

Though excelsior is located in the heart of historical Lancaster, it has a unique atmosphere all its own. The venue’s layout consists of multiple levels, with each level having its own identity! It’s totally up to you to decide how to use each space within the venue on your best day ever. You are open to any selection of rooms where you can get ready, have your first look, ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner and dancing!

The cozy bridal suite is the perfect spot to get ready and calm your nerves. You can slip on your dress & veil before meeting your Mr. down the aisle! For the guys, Excelsior lends its basement catacombs to the groom’s party. They can lay back here and sip on their favorite libations while the ladies finish receiving the glam treatment upstairs!

Excelsior also has plenty of available refreshing outdoor space, though it is not covered! Which is something to keep in mind when planning your wedding! Their terrace and garden courtyard are draped with charming string lights. They make for the perfect locations to host your ceremony or your cocktail hour.

In total there are 6 interconnecting indoor/outdoor spaces. You can take your wedding day from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner and a “dance the night away” reception! Your guests will have an absolute blast going from room to room. They will enjoy your wedding day as a full-blown experience at this one-of-a-kind venue!
