Fall wedding at Excelsior – Lancaster, PA – Emily and Andrew

January 24, 2023


Emily and Andrew were married on the most beautiful fall day of the year in Lancaster, PA. The air was crisp, the sun was warm. Emily and Andrew fell in love with the rustic and raw vibes that The Excelsior offers. The large venue has plenty of space and many rooms with so many different touches to “wow” and entertain guests. From the catacombs, to the courtyard, to the grand staircase, the guests were blown away all evening long. Florals and greenery filled every room, with touches of pink and earth tones to compliment the foliage outdoors, The Excelsior was a vision on this wonderful October afternoon. Emily looked stunning with her loose curls and classic gown. The bridesmaids wore silk and the groomsmen were in navy. Emily changed into a pearly, short dress to end the evening and they danced the beautiful night away–two happy and in love newlyweds!

In speaking and planning with Courtney before our big day, she was kind, thoughtful, helpful, and relatable. She everyone feel so at ease the day of our wedding. Not only did she capture us having the best day of our lives, but the smiles on our faces throughout the day as they filmed solidified our feelings — it really was such a great day!
