Lauxmont Farms is a vast 1,400 acre horse farm surrounded by 7 miles of the beautiful Susquehanna River. This allows our events and weddings to have music as long and as loud as they want to be (no sound restrictions). You are also allowed to shop for outside vendors or you can use one of our recommendations (no vendor restrictions). Additionally, you may bring your own alcohol for you and your guests (no alcohol restrictions).

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.

WOW! This venue is breath-taking (all the venues at LF are gorgeous, but we were just awed but the Rotunda). Our guests were equally stunned by this incredibly venue. Pictures just don't do it justice, so gorgeous. Not only is the venue amazing but the staff here are so wonderful. They were there with us every step of the way and helped ensure that our big day was a special one. What I liked best about this venue is that it is open - meaning I could use all the different vendors I wanted, which is exactly what I wanted for my wedding. They were so coordinated and helped us set up everything perfectly. They are an amazing value for what you get and I highly recommend this venue, just go do a tour and I bet you fall in love just like we did!!!

Of course, besides the stunning views and charming elegance of all 4 venues. Our most memorible part was the for front of the business, CECILIA!!! Cecilia ended up being our tour guide for our first day. Our venue was the first thing we picked out. Cecilia must have seen it in my eyes that I was a nervous wreck trying to plan this wedding. She presented a packet of highly recommended vendors of everything you can think of! Cecilia helped me pick out almost every single vendor!!! Because of this our wedding was flawless!!! Talk about taking a huge load off of our back. My husband and I looked at other venues before hand and Lauxmont was the only one with the best package plan. Unlimited table and chairs, unlimited time to end our wedding night, decorated all the bathrooms with fresh flowers, fresh hanging flower baskets outside and extremely flexible on all ideas on their property the day of the wedding. The staff are quick to respond. A very laid back business. Cecilia is a genuine person, has passion in what she does and treats her brides like family. A week or so before the wedding I loved a picture idea that was in the office of another bride. She remembered this and came to my venue and took all of us away in her jeep onto another part of the property to capture some amazing pictures!!! I just love Cecilia and Lauxmont that I just might, just might, renew my vows their again one day in the future. :)

This venue is absolutely gorgeous!! The staff at lauxmont are also very friendly and very easy to work with! We booked a year and a half in advance, and received emails with upgrades they were making to the venue throughout the whole time! They were also very prepared for extra things I had forgotten ( a few extra tables at the reception, able clothes for cocktail hour tables, etc) and were able to help us out on the spot. They had our rehearsal booked for us and ready to go on time. Cecelia also has some beautiful props and furniture available to use if needed. We also loved the fact that we could come back the next morning to clean up!! If I had to do it all over again, I would choose this venue again in a heartbeat!

We have filed a formal complaint against Lauxmont with both the Pennsylvania State Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission's Consumer Protection Bureau.

We had our wedding at the Rotunda on August 22, 2015. The Lauxmont wedding package includes a carriage ride to or from the ceremony. We chose to have the carriage take us from the ceremony, with our guests waving us off. We repeatedly told the Lauxmont staff that we wanted the carriage at 5:45pm. They promised us that the carriage would be "ready and waiting" by 5:45pm.

Yet when we finished our ceremony, the carriage was nowhere to be seen. We were left standing awkwardly there with our confused guests. Because of Lauxmont, the end of our wedding ceremony was ruined. The horse and carriage finally arrived 45 minutes later (after our guests had already gone into the Rotunda) and effectively ruined the ending that Lauxmont promised us.

After the wedding, we contacted Lauxmont and they lied, refused to acknowledge their error, did not apologize, and blamed the issue on us. They said that our ceremony "ran over the time window substantially." Yet we have proof - the last photo of our ceremony shows a time stamp of 5:43pm, slightly before the 5:45pm time when we wanted the carriage.

We asked for a $100 refund, which is fair considering that Lauxmont ruined the end of our ceremony. Lauxmont said they would include it with the deposit. We received the deposit a week later, with no refund! We contacted them and they said they'd send it out the following Monday. We never received the refund that they said they would send. I emailed them about it three times. No response.

I'd like to start by saying that ultimately our wedding was fantastic, the reception turned out great (we did not do our ceremony at Lauxmont, only the cocktail hour and reception), and everything worked out fine. However, the planning process of dealing with Lauxmont Farms up until the very day of the wedding was unorganized and unprofessional. I was planning the wedding from out of town and visited the venue ~2 months before the wedding to go over some details. At that point I learned that the venue I had paid for and thought I was receiving had completely changed - the location was under construction, building a new flooring, what I was told would be a new building (instead of an outdoor tent) - and no additional details about the building could be provided to me. For an entire month I went back and forth with Lauxmont via phone calls and emails to attempt to get additional information - in order to plan the reception decorations for the wedding now only a month away - and received very little to no details. Finally, 3 weeks before the actual wedding I received some information which allowed us to coordinate how and when to bring all the decorations as well as what was needed. Two weeks before the wedding, my wedding coordinator changed twice, requiring me to re-send all the details of my wedding multiple times to Lauxmont. Every time I spoke to a new person I received different answers to my questions which led to a lot of confusion and stress.

As I said, ultimately the wedding was beautiful and everything worked out, but I was extremely disappointed with the lack of professionalism and organization from a venue which is dedicated to weddings. They have received many awards for their wedding venues. I can only hope that my experience was a fluke, and it is not the norm for this vendor.

Beautiful location! Loved the flexibility of the venue and freedom to make it unique to me. We booked the Rotunda and loved the place and the view! Hard to keep track of the different employees helping us from booking to the day of the event. Always seemed like we were talking to someone new. They were very accommodating though. Lauxmont farms was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding!

The venue we selected at Lauxmont Farms was beautiful, although going this route with our wedding day was nerve wracking and difficult. Since the venue provided nothing but the tables, coordination was key. Beware brides-to-be: this is time consuming and frustrating.

Since many of the venues are outdoors, weather is a serious concern. It didn't rain during the ceremony, but it did pour afterwards and leaked all through the barn reception area. By the first dance, my dress was black on the bottom, which didn't make for wonderful photos.

Overall, the venue was lovely. Our guests were happy. And it is now a beautiful memory.

I couldn't have asked for a better place to hold my wedding than Lauxmont Farms. When my fiance and I were searching through venues, Lauxmont was the most responsive, answering all of our questions quickly, and allowing us to tour the grounds multiple times despite their busy schedules.

The team was very professional and relaxed- I immediately could tell that they truly wanted to give us our perfect day no matter what it took. I had Monica from Lauxmont to help guide me through the wedding day, and to make sure everything ran smoothly. She was sweet, helpful, and attentive to our schedule and where we needed to be at what times. She went above and beyond after the ceremony to show our photographer the best places to take pictures, and made all of us comfortable the entire time. She even sent a few pictures to me that she took on her phone of the wedding, which was a nice little preview of what our photographer captured. Overall, I'm thrilled that we chose this venue to hold our special day.
