Lauxmont Farms is a three-generation family-owned estate, operated by the Kohr family since 1973. The 100% organic farm, perched high atop the Susquehanna River in Wrightsville, PA, is home to champion horses, historic legacy and striking architecture.

The Lauxmont Estate structures were designed by the famed New York architecture firm of Delano & Aldrich, known for their understated elegance and unique outside living spaces. They are also hailed for designing the American Embassy in Paris, the Japanese Embassy in Washington, DC and John D. Rockefeller’s home Kykuit, along the banks of the Hudson River.



The architectural pieces at Lauxmont are entrenched in the classic Beaux Arts style, a favored approach for grand public buildings and opulent mansions, which combines classical Greek and Roman architecture with Renaissance ideas.



At the heart of Lauxmont Farms is a family dedicated to preserving the rich character of the estate and sustained by a passion to share the beauty and unmatched charm of the property with those seeking a perfect place for their perfect day.

Was part of a wedding here at Lauxmont and the service was excellent. Everything was on point and timing was perfect. Never have I ever seen a wedding so beautiful nor would I imagine it possible. It was something out of a movie. The owners took care of so much and assured us the weather would be wonderful and that everything would be set perfectly. I would definitely come back to have my own wedding here.

This was a destination wedding for my family and it was a wonderful experience. I loved the venue, the attention by the staff, the locale, the essence of the whole ceremony. It's an incredible task to have a wedding and having the right staff to help you is key. Cecilia was very helpful in helping us organize the wedding; suggesting vendors; providing us guidance with decorations. additionally, Katie is phenomenal taking pictures. She is also very comfortable leading the wedding parties and family in pictures; a hard task when so much is going on. The staff of Lauxmont Farms was very efficient in helping with set up/ organizing/ answering questions and concerns. And all I can say is that family and friends had a great time. Aside from being in a beautiful location, many of the guests had never been in Pennsylvania, let alone the northeast USA; so it was more than a wedding for them; it was an experience. Thank you Lauxmont Farms! :)

I just love this venue so much! I am so happy I found lauxmont farms. First let me start off by saying that Cecilia and Kelly are just amazing. They got me through my day and made it stress free and fun. Anything I needed, they were there for me to help out and make it happen. These ladies are amazing and I couldn't have done it without them. Lauxmont farms is beautiful and I knew this was going to be my venue as I was pulling into the driveway the first time I visited. The views are beautiful of the water and horse fields. The tent was great and everything else we loved. I can't say enough great things. My experience there was better than I ever expected or dreamed of for my wedding day. I have guests calling about my venue and already know two who are going to call to visit the farm for their weddings bc my pictures looked so nice and unique. You can't go wrong- this place is perfect. I highly recommend having a wedding here. They are so easy to work with and get back to you right away when emails sent or calls made. I can't thank the staff enough. My wedding was a dream come true!

We had our wedding at the Cobblestone Courtyard and it was absolutely beautiful! Everyone was so helpful and answered any questions whenever we had them. They were very flexible with us. We had no complaints at all and everyone we spoke to had an absolute blast and loved the venue. Our venue coordinator, Sarah, was extremely helpful with both the rehearsal and the wedding. She did whatever we asked of her and I can not thank her enough. Overall we had a fantastic time, as did our guests, and we would not have changed a thing.

My husband and I saw multiple venues all the way from Harrisburg to Philadelphia. The first time we visited Lauxmont Farms, we fell in love. Not only was our venue immaculate and the view was breathtaking, it was about 20 minutes from Harrisburg which was ideal four our guests. We had our ceremony and our reception at the sunken garden and couldn’t have been happier with our selection. My husband wanted the wedding to be at the rotunda but was very happy with the way everything turned out, and was really impressed with the way everything looked in the end. Ceci was our wedding coordinator at the farm and she's simply wonderful. We are extremely happy about the decision we have made. I hope other brides visit Lauxmont before visiting anywhere else.

Wow, wow, wow. We got married at the Japanese Gardens on 6/14/14. We do not have one single complaint about this venue. It was absolutely stunning. We had so many compliments from our guests about the beauty of our wedding. Lauxmont Farms staff was extremely easy to work with. They are extremely flexible and accommodating. Anythng from the wedding that we did not want to keep, they removed and discarded from the site which made cleanup a breeze. This was by far the best, happiest, most joyful day of our lives and everything ran so smoothly. The one suggestion I would make would be to do something about the smell in the tent bathrooms. It smelled slightly of mothballs but in the scheme of things this was not a big deal whatsoever! Thank you Lauxmont farms for a wonderful, beautiful day. We could not be more pleased.

We had our reception here and we picked it because we wanted to pick our own services. The view is absolutely beautiful. We used the Japanese Gardens, but all four sights are amazing. They have new management and they are very professional. We had an amazing time and would have our wedding there again.

After I got engaged, I was so excited to research wedding and reception venues. I literally spent weeks doing so. When I came across Lauxmont Farms, the pictures were absolutely breathtaking and I showed my fiancé immediately. The only issue was that all of my family and friends lived in Maryland so I was concerned about the drive up to PA. I decided I wanted to go see it for myself anyway. As soon as my fiancé and I saw the site, I was immediately sure that this was where I wanted to get marred and have my reception. Even though it was the only venue I had seen, I knew in my heart that it was exactly what I had envisioned and perfect for us. We asked about availability and at first I was unsure of which site I wanted on the farm, since there are 4 separate venues. The Rotunda was our ultimate decision and I couldn't be happier with that choice. Cecilia, our man contact person was absolutely amazing. She was so nice from the very beginning and was so accommodating during my planning phase. Even if I called the same day and asked if I could come look at the venue for ideas, she would let me. All of her staff were incredibly helpful. She made my wedding day more amazing that I ever could of dreamed. Every single person that attended my wedding said that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen. The view and atmosphere made it top notch. It was incredible. When I arrived in the bridal suite for hair and makeup morning of the wedding, they already had all the chairs and arches set up outside for the ceremony and the reception chairs and tables set as well. The staff told me that if I needed anything at all, not to hesitate and ask. When guests arrived, the setting was perfect. I just can't thank everyone at Lauxmont Farms enough for giving me my best day ever! Everyone had the best and most enjoyable time and the drive from Maryland ended up being so worth it! It was perfect~!

his place was perfect for our medium outdoor wedding. The price was great. The place is beautiful and serene. The amount of things included in their packages is awesome. The vendor coordinator from Lauxmont did a great job running the show smoothly and was very flexible with us when we had things come up before the wedding. It was definitely the right place for me to have my wedding.

I just returned from my Honeymoon and felt that I had to tell the world how elated I was to have celebrated my wedding at Lauxmont Farms. The venue has a beautiful view of the Susquehanna River. My guests took many pictures with the river in the backdrop. Another great aspect about this venue is that all caterers are welcome and this was important to my now husband and I since a family member of mine owns a restaurant and did all of the catering. Most of my guests came from out of town and that was no issue since there are a lot of wonderful hotels in the area. In summary, this is the spot to have a memorable wedding.

I hosted my wedding at Lauxmont Farms - Sunken Garden this past summer. The place is magical, the greenery, the architecture and the views! The wedding went very smooth, the site staff was very helpful and attentive to my every need. The pictures came out gorgeous with all the views in the background. My wedding coordinator was the best, she made me feel very at ease and took care of all the little details so that I didn't have to worry. I totally recommend this venue to any couple looking to get married in the PA area.

I could honestly say I had my dream wedding here at Lauxmont. The staff was completely reliable and helped with everything. Cecilia gave us the tour around the place and I fell in love immediately. She helped us with vendors and setting up and everyone involved was very professional and helpful. For what I paid, it was completely worth it. A staff member there named Jose helped us a lot with setting things up and I couldn't have been happier. Everybody was very impressed with the location and wedding and the scenery is to die for. Would definitely recommend this venue for everyone.

my fiancee and i chose the Japanese garden at lauxmont farms for our wedding this past summer .we are both into Japanese culture and art so the authentic Japanese garden with the koi pond was a match made in heaven for us.the venue was very good value because it was an all day venue and it included the set up and pick up .the packages also included the set up of the chairs and the tables for the ceremony and the reception .all i had left to do was the music, drinks, and the caterer . i chose Michaels for my caterer their Delicious food came included with the linen and china all for just 25$ ! our wedding turned out amazing ! if i had to do it again , i would definitively still choose lauxmont farms.

I got married here in April and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect ceremony. My husband and I chose the Japanese garden and I do not regret it (at first I wanted the Rotunda), it was totally magical, the pond, the koi fish and the rocks made it feel like I was in a different world. The farm itself was very green and clean, the staff were friendly and very helpful, ready to lend a hand with anything we requested. Our site coordinator took care of all the vendors and checked up on us quite often to make sure everything was okay, I was very pleased with the service. I would definitely recommend Lauxmont Farms for your wedding, they exceeded my expectations in every way.

My fiancé and I got married at the Sunken Gardens venue at Lauxmont Farms and it was just picture perfect! Situated high above the Susquehanna River the views are breathtaking and there are endless opportunities for great photos. We worked with Site Coordinator Kristen who was very down to earth yet professional. She was flexible and met with us several times before our big day and alleviated any of our concerns.
Would do it all over again just the same!

I had my wedding and reception at the Rotunda on October 8, 2011. The venue was just breathtaking. Betsy was my coordinator as well and she made things go so smoothly without a hitch. I had visited Lauxmont many times but nothing prepared me for my wedding day. We had beautiful shepard hooks with candles, a fire pit, tables outside, and torches lit at night.

Lauxmont Farms far surpassed every expectation. As a little girl, you tend to picture a dream wedding, well Lauxmont Farms and Betsy made it even better than the dream.

All of my guests were telling me that it was the most amazing wedding they have ever attended. The view is so spectacular that it is almost like a dream. Our pictures look like we were superimposed because the view is that magnificent and couldn't possibly be real, but it sure was.

I've been approached by many of the attendees that wanted to know all the info about Lauxmont because they had daughters, sons, friends or relatives that were getting married and they were so struck by the location that they wanted to pass on the information.

I also have to say, you really can't take a bad picture there. I didn't spend as much on my photographer once I picked Lauxmont. I just knew that even the most amateur photographer could get magazine quality photographs there.

I highly reccomend Lauxmont if you want a wedding that everyone will remember.

We fell in love with Lauxmont Farms the moment we saw it. I will say that there were a few VERY minor hiccups in the beginning of our booking process, but once it came to "crunch time" and our wedding day, I cannot give Lauxmont Farms anything less than five stars and a raving review as they truly earned it.

The site coordinator, Barb, is nothing short of god sent. After spending time with us to perfectly arrange our floor plan, letting us walk through our site, and to ensure we had everything we needed for the big day we hit one heck of a brick wall... Hurricane Irene. We had spent months preparing to have our wedding at the Sunken Gardens. The location was absolutely gorgeous and perfect for our theme. However, with the impending hurricane due to hit the area on our wedding day it became dangerous and impractical for our event and guests. I called Barb FIVE days before our wedding to discuss our options and to my complete surprise and shock, not only was the Rotunda (indoors) available but it was offered to us as a backup plan at no additional cost AND we were given until the afternoon BEFORE our wedding to make a final decision. I just about fell over. A true life (and sanity) saver, Barb promptly faxed me a backup layout and reassured me that everything would be ok.

On the day of our rehearsal, Barb checked in with us and we confirmed that the change would be necessary. She took the time to go through the new site with us and our wedding coordinator, Jonnaysa of Planned Perfection, to make suggestions and confirm the new details. She was so attentive and calm, I almost felt like it was all a dream! When I left Lauxmont Farms that day, I knew that under the circumstances most brides would be panicking and fearful but I felt confident that Barb and the staff at Lauxmont had everything under control.

My wedding day turned out absolutely perfect, and it was clear that Lauxmont's staff and Barb had put in the extra effort to make it so. They literally saved the day, and for that they will always hold a special place in our hearts.

After reading some of these reviews months ago, I was a little worried about having my wedding here but we had our ceremony and reception at the Cobblestone Courtyard and it was absolutely amazing! Beautiful scenery (even though we did not have the scenes of the river), wonderful service each and every visit and just an all around terrific venue! Also, I highly recommend hiring Betsy as the decorator and coordinator! She did a fabulous job and it wouldn't have been half as amazing without her!

My husband and I fell in love with this place as soon as we saw it. We were nervous about using it because we kept hearing horror stories about how the owners never returned phone calls, etc. I am so happy to say that we never had a problem reaching someone at the farm. Any questions were always answered promptly and professionally. My only little complaint (and it really isn't a big deal because you can call them) is that their emails did not work. We worked with Betsy Kohr and Barb and both were wonderful to deal with. Both were very helpful and willing to help us with any questions that we had. They really did make our day feel special!!

The Rotunda at Lauxmont Farms was the perfect location for our wedding reception! Within moments of driving up that gorgeous hill overlooking the Susquehanna River, we knew it was the spot. My guests were blown away by the views and the atmosphere. It was breathtaking. I was a little stressed at first, since there were some negative reviews out there, but honestly, our experience was wonderful. The one thing to remember is that it is not a location with a wedding day coordinator included, like some other sites, so I hired Jonnaysa from Planned Perfection. She was amazing! I used lighting from Studio Jenz to create a warm glow in the side room and rented a light-up bar through him as well. We had such a blast at our wedding. We got to do it our way and select all our own vendors. We hand picked our food menu, created signature drinks, everything! It does require more planning than some sites with internal catering and planning services provided, but if you want a gorgeous view and unbeatable atmosphere, visit Lauxmont. We could not be happier! Our wedding day was perfect!

Choosing Lauxmont Farms for my wedding ensured a private place that provided guests with a sense of beauty, peace, and charm. The Farm is owned by a family with extraordinary talents in the arts. Not only do they offer their land, but they offer their knowledge in photography, floral design, and theater design. I was overhelmed by the sincerity, professionalism, creativiy, and ease I experienced working with them. The Farm has many sites to choose from, and each one offers a specific feeling. I choose the rotunda which rests on a hill and looks out over gated horse pastures and the river. It's hard to explain the feeling of this site, because it is a place of contradictions. It is down-to-earth and otherworldly at the same time.
The Farm helped me with finding vendors who matched my needs. Some of the most fun I had was sitting down with one of the sisters and talking about the vision I had in my head. I am still amazed with the result. She literally took my ideas and brought them to life.
Most importantly, my guests enjoyed the atmosphere. I still receive compliments about the site! One of the best parts of having a wedding at the Farm is the day after...the memories you and your guests share. It remains in my mind as one of the most beautiful, comfortable, and magical places I've ever been to.
If you choose Lauxmont Farms as your venu, you are choosing a lovely family who find great joy in sharing the land they grew up on. The feeling is unavoidable when you drive up to the rotunda. Pure magic!!

Lauxmont Farms is a GORGEOUS wedding site and provided me with the wedding of my dreams. We used the Sunken Gardens on a Friday evening in August, and the sunset on the river was breathtaking, providing unbelievable backgrounds for our wedding pictures. The landscape is so diverse, so there are so many places to take pictures. I loved that the carriage ride was included, though we didn't stay on it for long, it was great for effect and pictures. Betsy Kohr was our wedding planner and I can't imagine doing it without her! She was so flexible and made everything go so smoothly. She even tied up the bustle in my gown for me before I went on to the reception, and had a little talk with my uncooperative flower girl who miraculously made it down the aisle (staircase). We had so many compliments about how the beautiful site made our wedding unforgettable. I would recommend Lauxmont to anyone-- they were awesome!

I have been reading the reviews and thinking about my wedding 10 years ago. This venue was perfect, ten years later people still comment on the wedding:

My tips:
1) read your contract and know what you are getting, if you are asking for something if it is not in your contract it is on you if you don't get it. It took me 4 days to go over everything with the contract. I knew what to expect and had no surprises.

2) this place is not on city water so talk about facilty tour the place check out the bathrooms as about back up plans if you have no power. We did and things went well

3) If your wedding was not how you pictured it is it this facility fault or did you over think the wedding? this happens all the time. I am still in touch with the family at lauxmont and they are wonderful and professional

4) GET A DAY OF COORDINATOR if not more then just the day. This place has a lot of moving parts if you want to sit back and just enjoy spend the money and get a professional not associate with the facility to be your eyes and ears and your go to person to handle everything. Let it be her job to figure things out not you bride maids, self, or mother. This is huge and she will help you go over your details, give you timelines, and make sure the schedule keeps moving

5) get an amazing cater the food needs to be as great as the views. If you can't afford amazing food then this is not the venue for you because yes this place is expensive

6) Have katy be your photographer, she is amazing, knows the grounds and knows the light.

My wedding had issues with power, water, linens damage, trees down (who can predict a huge storm right?) but the owners were out there with chainsaws clearing the mess, my coordinator was working with them the get us water, the florist was working his tail off to figure out something with the flowers. Things didn't go as planned at all but sometimes you just got to go with it and have a good time, your married now enjoy.

The best decision my wife and I made for our Oct. 2013 wedding was choosing the Cobblestone Courtyard at Lauxmont Farms. Everyone, from the owners of the farm to the people setting up the chairs were a pleasure to work with and made my wedding stress-free and unforgettable.
Lauxmont Farms was the first wedding venue we visited after getting engaged. My wife wanted to have an outdoor ceremony so Lauxmont was first on our list. We immediately fell in love with it. All four venues at Lauxmont were beautiful but the Cobblestone Courtyard really caught our eyes. The cobblestone courtyard, which has venetian lights strung over it, was the perfect place to have our outdoor ceremony. The adjacent barn was big enough for the number of guests we were expecting and wasn’t too “country” for our plans.
Cecelia took us on a tour of the farms, describing everything about the venues while asking us questions about what we were planning for the wedding. She was extremely helpful, funny, and generous with her time. We visited a lot more venues after our tour but unanimously agreed that Lauxmont was the place for us.
After we chose the Cobblestone Courtyard as our venue, Cecelia’s staff were so helpful with getting us information about the venue, working with our vendors and making sure our wedding would go off without a hitch. They returned phone calls and emails quickly and made sure we were prepared for the wedding.
The wedding day came and the Cobblestone Courtyard looked perfect! It was absolutely spotless. Knowing that we had to get the venue decorated early, the Lauxmont crew came in hours early just to make sure the venue was set up exactly how we wanted it to look.
I cannot recommend Lauxmont Farms highly enough. The venues are beautiful, the owners are caring, generous and flexible and the staff are professional. Want to have an unforgettable wedding? Book Lauxmont Farms now!

We had ouu wedding at the Cobblestone Courtyard last Saturday and it was simply amazing. Lauxmont has positively the most beautiful property I've seen and they know just how to add a special touch to make a great place gorgeous for your wedding. Kristin was an amazing help with everything and went WAY out of her way to make sure our wedding was perfect down to every last detail. The staff are all very accommodating and gracious, wonderful to work with (especially Kristin!!). Our guests endlessly complimented the beautiful grounds and we couldn't agree more. If I had to do my wedding over, I'd pick Lauxmont again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone looking for an unforgettable venue. THANK YOU LAUXMONT!!!!!

Hello! We had our wedding here in June at the Rotunda. It was nothing less than perfect. We were able to decorate how we pleased and had the venue all day long.(unlike other venues we had looked at) My husband and I were able to enjoy our day without any hassles. Our over all decision came down to cost with how many guests we planned on having. We had 180 guests and were provided with a vendor list, which consisted of vendors that were there previously. This also made our planning so much easier!! Lauxmont staff was very helpful and understanding on what we imagined and put it into action.

Although the Rotunda at Lauxmont Farms was probably over our budget, I feel blessed to have been able to enjoy my wedding there. I am a summer girl and our summer wedding at the farm was breathtaking: which is what all our guests reiterated! The view of the Susquehanna is amazing and the white walls of the Rotunda as well as the horse fences really drove home the feeling of being on a farm and being a part of nature! I really don't think my words can do the place justice: set up a viewing and see it for yourself! :)

The Sunken Gardens site was beautiful, and you get so much for the price! We were married August 16th, 2009, and even though it was a hot day they were flexible with allowing us to take more flaps off the tent they provided for us for our reception. The only reason I gave a low score for responsiveness is because it is sometimes hard to get thru to anyone in the office and its usually always a different person who answers, but in the end everything was set up perfectly (table and chairs are included in the price too!) for both the ceremony and reception.

Our Ceremony and Reception were at the Japanese Garden on 4/27/12. We were hesitant about booking with Lauxmont Farms initially; due to some of the poor reveiws I found online. However, I couldn't get the beautiful view I was looking for anywhere else. So, we decided to go out on a limb. I AM SO HAPPY WE DID!!!! The ceremony site and the tent were set up according to plan. The decorations (lanterns/trees, lighted tent poles) that Betsy Kohr put up for us added some definite ambiance to the atmosphere. The parking attendants on horseback impressed our guests beyond belief! All of the events for the day went according to plan, the golf cart took myself and the bridesmaids back and forth so we didn't have to walk across the field in heels. There was only one flaw in the day, that was quickly corrected. It was very windy the day of the wedding; and the tent walls were not initially tied down properly which cause the table decorations to start blowing. Ron Kohr came up shortly after and began securing the sides so they stayed down. The horse and carriage ride after the ceremony made for some beautiful photographs. If I had to do it all over again; I would pick the same venue. You definitely pay for the scenery; but if you are looking for wonderful photographs and just a genuine serene wedding site. Lauxmont Farms Japanese Garden is it!

The Sunken Gardens is a beautiful site to get married in. The people at Lauxmont were very easy going and were willing to do what you wanted but you need to stay on top of things. The night before our wedding we had a bad storm and things were messed up and we had to tell them about the log across where the guest had to come in. I would recommend a really wedding planner if you are going to go with them. I am very specific and I can stay on top of things. You have to provide everything but the tent/chairs/and tables I would make sure you go with a vendor especially your caterer that has been there before. You can't beat the views and the setting just make sure you are organized! I couldn't have asked for a better day.

We had our ceremony and reception at Lauxmont Farms in April 2010. Our ceremony was at the Sunken Gardens and our reception at the Cobblestone Courtyard. We were certainly drawn in by the gorgeous scenery and it did not leave us wanting, our guests are still talking about what a "fairytale wedding" it was.

I would agree with other reviewers that they were a little disorganized (I think it is partly due to their laid back and carefree lifestyle), but in the end everything came together for us and we weren't left disappointed in any manner. I would suggest that you book early, make as many appointments as you can, and just call if you have questions!! We did hire the onsite wedding coordinator and she was great in getting all the pieces of the puzzle together. They were very flexible on several of our requests and I think they ultimately want you to have a day that you and your guests will never forget! If you are using the sunken gardens, I would suggest that you strongly recommend to your guests that they wear comfortable (ie not stilettos!) shoes and definitely utilize the golf carts for elderly persons or those who have a hard time walking on uneven surfaces.

I loved my wedding at Lauxmont. Lauxmont offers the most beautiful sites in Central PA and is an extremely laid-back, flexible venue. They allow you to bring in your own alcohol and off-site vendors which helps save a lot of money, since you aren't forced to use a specific caterer, or other services. They also have a wide variety of dates and options for indoor/outdoor weddings.

They charge a flat fee and dont nickle and dime you for extra for equipment (chairs, tables, archways) like other places do. Additional decor is available at a reasonable price. Staff will work with you to set up your personal plan for the site about three weeks prior to your wedding.

A few things I learned along the way working with Lauxmont: if you are a bride who wants a lot of additional day-of organizational help, or an "all-inclusive package", spend the extra money to hire Betsy Kohr, who works with Lauxmont to provide decor and coordination services. Because you can only access your site after 12 pm on your wedding day, it is helpful to have the extra hands to help coordinate all the decoration and set up, especially if you don't want to put your friends and family to work.

Lauxmont does not provide trash removal--something that came as a surprise to me and caused me some stress until I learned that most caterers on their approved list (including mine) take care of this as part of your contract, but make sure to check.

Lastly, Lauxmont was not quick to get back to me and when I called I often talked to a different person; sometimes this led to me getting different answers to the same questions. If you have a question that you need a quick response to I would suggest calling, not emailing, for the best results.

Over all however my husband were extremely happy with our experience and would highly recommend the venue. They were attentive to my specific requests--including adding wheelchair ramp to the bathrooms last minute so my grandpa could attend.

My husband and I wanted different things when we looked at venues. He wanted there to be shelter from heat and rain, and I wanted there to be outdoor areas for beauty. The Cobblestone Courtyard at Lauxmont Farms offered both!

There were some minor hiccups along the way, though. When they sent the final bill, the wrong location was written on it. It turned out to just be a clerical error, but I'm sure you can imagine my displeasure. Also, we had planned to have our ceremony seats in an arc like orchestra seating when we met with the location planner. The morning the of the wedding, my groom and a few of his groomsmen visited only to find the aisle in a totally weird spot and in straight lines. The three of them had to rearrange all of the chairs by themselves. My only warning to other brides would be that you might want to have somebody visit your location the morning of the wedding to make sure everything is where it's supposed to be so you can get stuff fixed, if need be.

If we had not gotten the most gorgeous day ever, I would not think so highly of this site. It was however perfect and more than I could have asked for. On a sunny day, no place can top the natural beauty of this site. One word of warning is that they don't tell you about the costs of all the little extras. All you get with the space is the site, tables and chairs - NO decor - even if it is hanging on the wall when you tour the place.
The venue is expensive as it is and then all the little extras really add up.
Also, don't be afraid to use "non-family" vendors. This being said, my wedding was perfect and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

She didn't do much besides stand there and then left early without letting anyone know. Everything else was perfect and the location is breath taking!

Since I grew up in Central PA, I was aware of most of the wedding venues and their packages when we got engaged. Doing some research online, I quickly eliminated many of them because of my single deal-breaker: I wanted to pick my own caterer, photographer, florist, etc., and did NOT want to be forced into contracts with specific vendors. In the end, we only ended up doing one site visit: Lauxmont Farms. The Cobblestone Courtyard stole my heart (as I knew it would before we even visited), and my then-fiance was immediately on board as soon as he saw how beautiful the location was.

Being able to choose our own vendors saved us tens of thousands of dollars. Cecelia, our site coordinator, was a lot of fun and very helpful throughout the process. Responsiveness is not Lauxmont's strong suit, so at times, that was frustrating, but overall, things went smoothly. All of their staff are polite and helpful, and they were very flexible with us on our decor needs/wants.

Everyone raved about our venue, and it's one of the main reasons our wedding photos are as stunning as they are.

Lauxmont Farms Cobblestone Courtyard was the PERFECT venue for our June wedding. The site was beautiful and the new wall and construction really spiffed up the place. I do however wish we had known it was going to be worked on. We showed up about a little over a month until our wedding and the courtyard was a pile of dirt with a demolished wall. We were shocked and not sure why we were not even notified of the work being done on the venue. It looked nice, but I really did not appreciate the anxiety that the surprise dirt pile gave me. In addition, the bridal house was absolutely adorable and a great place to get ready for the day. If I could redo the day though I would probably choose the golf cart over the horse and carriage because the horse was spooked by someone down the road and the dog of one of the Lauxmont Farms family kept barking at the horse spooking it more. Cecelia did not do very much to get the dog inside, and the additional walks for the horse to calm down made me late to get down to the wedding so my groom and guests were left waiting. Cecelia also promised to come back up to the bride's house throughout the day but she was not present. Overall the venue was amazing and I would recommend it highly, just be your own organizer and try not to let the disorganization of the day get under your skin! Bring a good MOH ;)

Lauxmont is undeniably a breathtaking venue for a wedding ceremony and reception. However: expect to pay for great scenery and not great customer service. While everything went perfectly at my wedding, during the months leading up to planning I never talked to 1 consistent person but instead about 5 or 6 different people. I also had about 3 different vendor coordinators so that neither of the people I was corresponding with before the big day were the ones actually there on my wedding day. The consultation a week before the wedding was a bit of a joke and I'm thankful that my caterer knew the venue so well and did most of the consulting. If you are an organized bride who doesn't need any hand-holding or much support during your venue planning, then Lauxmont will be amazing for you. If you prefer more reliable feedback and professional planning, then look elsewhere.

We love the view and the atmosphere of the Rotunda where we were married, and these were the reasons we chose the venue to begin with. It was a beautiful setting and we're very happy we chose Lauxmont.

We initially had some difficulty with receiving our contract and getting a response from the coordinator with whom we were paired. When we changed the method of payment for the venue, we asked to have a contract drawn up that reflected that change (as there was a monetary change as well). After multiple phone calls and emails we still had not received the paperwork, which was concerning as well as frustrating.

However, near the end of our experience the coordinator that we had been working with was replaced with Jose, who was responsive, professional, and helped us to finalize all of the last minute plans. We felt very comfortable working with him.

For future brides I would highly recommend working with Jose. We loved our reception at Lauxmont and would recommend it to others.

We only used Lauxmont Farms (Japanese Gardens) for the reception. The setting was beautiful and that's really what you pay for. Our caterer loved the set up and said it was really one of the best locations he had used. Before the wedding, we did get to meet up with our site coordinator once, but it was a pretty thorough meeting and we felt more comfortable since we didn't have a wedding planner. On the day of the wedding, our site coordinator disappeared around 4 although she said she was staying until dinner started. The only issue we had was that we had to try to hunt down the carriage (which was to take us to the cocktail hour) without anyone else seeing the two of us! The bridal house was still being cleaned when we showed up, so I had to finish carrying all of the stuff out to the trash and straighten up the room before the rest of the girls arrived. We used their on-site decorator only for a few items - one being mason jars with candles to light the path. She never showed up to light the candles, so I had some of our guests do it. Everything else looked beautiful, though, and she did a great job with the fall-theme. We used their photographer only for the photo booth - which was a hit. Unfortunately, she was late with the guest book and I don't know that a lot of people actually signed it. I would suggest that you get a 2nd guest book if you go this route - just so you don't miss anything!

Lauxmont Farms is a beautiful location, which is why my husband and I chose the venue for our wedding. We were outside at the Japanese Gardens. All communication was initiated on our end, and I wish they would have been in contact with us more the month before our wedding, but we were quite satisfied overall.
They actually had an on-site coordinator for us for the day of our wedding. Her name was Sarah and she was absolutely AMAZING! She helped my husband and the groomsmen set up all centerpieces and decorations the day of the wedding. She also came to the carriage house while my bridesmaids and I were getting ready to introduce herself and ask if we needed anything. When the need did arise, she was there and willing to help us in every way possible. I cannot compliment her enough! She truly was on top of everything, and helped our day run much more smoothly, and she took a great deal of stress away from my husband and I.
Lauxmont had everything set up correctly for the day of the wedding, and the lawn was mowed on Thursday (the wedding was Saturday). Having said that, there were some plumbing issues at the Carriage House. The water pressure dropped greatly after flushing the toilet only twice. A plumber did come to look over things, but it didn't seem to help much. I'm grateful we were the only wedding party getting ready in the Carriage House, because I think we would have had more issues with the toilet and sinks with more people there.

We had our reception at the Rotunda. It was a GORGEOUS location for a reception; we received multiple compliments on how beautiful the view was and our pictures were fantastic! During the planning, Lauxmont was slow to return phone calls. The only lady who could apparently call me back went on vacation for 2 weeks one month before my wedding. It's a little pricey considering all you get is the location, tables, and chairs, but it's definitely worth it for your big day!

Lauxmont Farms is a georgeous destination for those looking to get married. The venue itself is breath taking, and with the different choices for the actual spot (cobblestone courtyard, Rotunda, Sunken Gardens, Pretty Pastures & Japanese Gardens) it makes it very easy for anyone to find what they're looking for. The only issues I had were basically communication. I let the venue know almost 6 months in advance that we would be setting up the day before the wedding (sunday) at the site. They understood this and let me know that nobody else would be there, however, the day of set up- we were greeted by another party who were celebrating a baby shower inside our venue. After all of our family and friends arrived, we had to sit and wait until the first party was over before we could even begin to set up ours.
Also, due to back ups, the deposit we were supposed to receive came almost 2 months late and after several phone calls (all of them turning up unresponsive from the owner) the administrative assistant got our check to us shortly after.

The venue is great, be careful about recent issues regarding the land and iminant domain laws. I would recommend this venue, just do your research and expect a low responsive rate.

I would recommend this venue to anyone, it is beautiful. You just have to make sure you have everything under control. I wish I would have had a day of planner just so I didn't have to be in charge of everything. I was disappointed that the pool that was in our cocktail hour (we were in the Sunken Gardens) was green and had a cleaning tool floating around in it and the little fountains on the side were not turned on. When the rain hit (2 times) no one came to check on us or help us put the tent flaps down when the wind almost knocked over my cake. Everyone at the wedding had a great time and said it was beautiful and only I and my mom knew what went wrong.

We had our wedding and reception at the Cobblestone Courtyard this past July. Right from when we visited with Cecelia (who was fabulous) we knew we wanted to have our wedding there, and cancelled our visits to other venues. It had a good value for what we were looking for, and since I am an organized person, we did not feel the need to hire their wedding planner, thinking the coordinator would be enough.

When we came for another visit with my parents, there were some issues with the contract as it had not been sent prior to our visit as we'd requested, and we met with a different Lauxmont rep than our first meeting. (Essentially, they do not have a liquor license as theknot.com advertises.) When we came for our final appointment 1 month before the wedding, they were not at the Courtyard when our officiant and caterer were with us, and we had to call for someone to come and still a DIFFERENT rep handled that appointment.

The day of the wedding they said they'd have a coordinator to handle our needs, but she was very young and inexperienced and had more questions for my maid of honor than answers. We did not mind setting up and organizing because we knew that was what we'd signed up for, but help as to where tables are (since the right number were not set up, despite my diagram from our month before meeting) or what to do in case of rain (which we had during cocktail hour) would have been useful.

The day was wonderful despite all that and we were in fact married at the end of it, but I feel really bad about the amount of work and hassle that our bridal party had to unnecessarily endure. The place is beautiful, and they definitely have that going for them, but just know what you're getting into, as we did.

We used the Rotunda at Lauxmont Farms, and it was a uniquely beautiful place to have our reception. Lauxmont was the last reception site we looked at, and we knew Lauxmont was the right place for us as soon as we saw the view at the Rotunda. We booked Lauxmont back in May of 2003, so prices have certainly gone up a good bit since we booked. We thought it was pricey back when we booked it, but the view was well worth it.

Carol McAndrews was our Lauxmont coordinator, who was new to to coordination, but did an acceptable job. We sat down with her about a month before the wedding to draw a floorplan, and while she was familiar with the set-up, she was not familiar with some of the specifics for which I wanted answers.

A couple of things to keep in mind: Carol left shortly after our reception began, so when our DOC tried to get the A/C turned up because the Rotunda was getting warm, there was no one to fix it. Also, consider the time of day when you will be sitting inside for dinner. Our guests were seated about 4.45 pm before DST in October, and the sun was blinding some of the guests as it prepared to set. Finally (and this is certainly more my fault than theirs), the side room was not decorated how I would have liked it to be decorated. Standardly, the room is decorated with Christmas lights, tulle, and ivy around the chandeliers, which is not my style. I did not notice this when we did our final walk through, and I wish I had, because I didn't care for how it looked on our wedding day.

Overall, we were thrilled with Lauxmont, and we still get raves from our guests about the location several months after the wedding.

Lauxmont Farms is an absolutely gorgeous venue. A little pricey for what's included, but I found the views to be worth the costs. The flexibility is great if you're looking to have a "DIY" wedding where you provide your own catering, decor, and alcohol. The staff at Lauxmont is friendly but not responsive. They did a very nice job of following the agreed upon floor plan but once the ceremony began they were nowhere to be found. We got married on a beautiful fall day but it was very chilly. My caterer tried to contact Lauxmont staff several times to help close the tent flaps which were tangled and stuck, and to turn the heaters on, but they were extremely unresponsive leaving all of our guests very cold for a solid two hours. Overall, beautiful venue, friendly people to work with, just very unresponsive, they don't seem to value your business or how important the day is to you and your guests ...bring a "day of coordinator" if you're planning to use one of their venues. We would have been lost without ours.

Lauxmont Farms was absolutely gorgeous. Our wedding really looked like it was from a magazine. The professionalism and service could have been better though. The family was very nice, and were willing to work with us. However, I was not happy when I was told that we would have to change our rehearsal time, because they needed our time for a different wedding rehearsal, when we had been told that we would have all of Thursday night free at the site if we had a Friday night wedding.
I would definitely recommend considering a Friday evening wedding. We knew we couldn't afford the Saturday or Sunday prices, so we went for a Friday evening and went with the theme "An Elegant Picnic." It was very laid back, and so enjoyable. I also liked the fact that we didn't have to share the day, like you have to on Saturdays and Sundays. We had all of Friday to set up and prepare without feeling rushed.
Our ceremony and reception was held in the sunken gardens. We were worried about weather, but fell in love with the site. It did end up raining a few minutes after the ceremony ended, but everyone made it to the tent in time. I also recommend paying for the lights in and around the tent. It really makes for a fun atmosphere.

The only thing that makes the money worhtwhile in booking Lauxmont Farms (Sunken Gardens) as your venue is the beautiful scenery and views. The service was terrible! Everything is do it yourself. Then when the big day comes there is no one around to help with any concerns. The bathrooms were not working correctly and there were no trash cans. The paths were not marked, so our guests were going over a steep hill to get to the reception tent. The sight was not well lit at night for people coming and going. The reception site was not cleaned entirely before the event. Some of the facilitators were rude throughout the planning. We would not recommend this venue-You are better off booking your own backyard!

The only good thing about Lauxmont Farms is the scenery.

Now for the downside. They are very disorganized. They forgot about numerous meetings we had scheduled with Lauxmont. You never talk to the same person more than once. They won't let you view the site even after you have booked the venue without an appointment and escort. They told us they would have brick flooring on the tent floor for the sunken gardens and they also told us they would have a second room completed in the farm house for the bride. Both were not completed by our wedding day which was 9 months after our first visit. Now for the wedding day. Thankfully our caterer took care of any hiccups at the start of our day. We rented chairs because Lauxmont has wooden chairs which are painted white but at the end of the wedding season they have numerous scratches and dings that show the brown wood. Due to lack of rain the land was very dry so I cannot fault Lauxmont for that. However the driveway to the site is dirt/stone. They could have at least sprayed the driveway with water before everyone arrived to keep the dust down. All of our guests and their vehicles were covered with dust the day of the wedding. The carriage ride is a joke. The individuals driving the cart were not friendly. The carriage took us to the end of the parking lot and back.

After all of this things went rather well. Until 8pm. There was no more water. That means there was no washing hands or flushing toilets. I'm assuming they operate off of a well which was probably dried up due to the drought. We attempted to contact Lauxmont staff numerous times but were unsuccessful each time. Keep this in mind if you schedule a wedding here in the summer. After reading multiple reviews it appears that water is always an issue. Something they should think about fixing ASAP.

Again, I gave them one star for the beautiful scenery. I would definitely have my wedding here again but I would never do it without a coordinator and outside services!!! Bring some extra water as well to flush the toilets when the water runs dry!

After some thought, I regret having my wedding at Lauxmont. I was taken in by the view like everyone else and didn’t listen to the ratings. What I did not expect to feel on my wedding day was anger. I was angry because I had spent an entire year planning everything – food, invitations, photography, only to have the venue itself crapping out and working against me. I wish I had kept that $5550 (yep that’s the fee for the Rotunda) and gotten a venue with more professional service. Because while my guests liked the view, I should have had something that worked for me. So I didn’t have to feel an ounce of negativity. Here are my reasons:
• Bar and coffee tables were missing in setup. Extra guest table. Instead of getting ready, I moved tables and directed. I was late for pre-photos.
• I found out my BIL attended a different Rotunda wedding and said the horseback attendant’s horse kicked a car then threw the attendant off and the attendant was taken to the hospital.
• Tons of flies flying around and landing on guest’s food. Threw my cake away rather than take it home. Lauxmont wanted to spray pesticides when the flowers and linens were already out.
• Bathrooms were not cleaned or vacuumed. Toilets were dirty. Embarrassing.
• Gave tours on my wedding day even though I arranged with them to arrive at 10am for a 2:30 ceremony.
• Jose never showed for the wedding. Tour person said he was grumpy and coming, then later said he wasn’t because he was “going to do paperwork instead.”
• Was stood up for the tour. Found there was a major stinkbug infestation for fall weddings.
• Refused to assign one designated contact, so no one remembers your instructions.
• They pitch you save money by booking your own vendors, but that adds stress and plus you lose any savings with the $5550 payment.
• Only offered one rehearsal time even though my officiant was already booked at that time.
• Pushed back on a sunset carriage ride.
