Gorgeous venue and the day couldn't have gone better!!!

The Eicher Arts Historic Center was a WONDERFUL venue and my wedding day was just so perfect! We were familiar with this venue because my husband's brother got married here two years earlier and my in-laws lived about 5 minutes away. It just seemed like the perfect place because... Read More it was small, absolutely beautiful, and extremely versatile. We planned for an outside ceremony but in case the weather went bad, the deck would have provided a great secondary space because it was covered and you could still capture the beauty of the outside. Jimmy and his wife were more than helpful. They put so many hours into making the outside look gorgeous and bent over backwards for us. Jimmy is very funny and will go above and beyond to meet your needs to make your day special. We could set up the entire day before, and tear down on Sunday. There was plenty of time to decorate. The venue sits next to the Ephrata Cloister which makes for an amazing place to take wedding party photos. Barbara Liszcz from My 3 Girls Photography couldn't have been a better choice for us on our day. We used Rettew's Catering which is very familiar with the venue and they provided superb service and food. Because the weather was so nice, we had our "reception" outside on the deck (we only ate inside). This allowed for everyone to spread out and just enjoy themselves playing games like corn hole on the lawn or dancing with the DJ. We used Tracey Shaner ([email protected]) and she was AWESOME in all caps. I don't think my friends have stopped talking about how fun our wedding was and how good the music was. And just the overall beauty of the wedding day and venue. It was more than perfect and I wouldn't have changed a think in the world! If you want to do something different on your wedding day, and you are looking for a smaller, more intimate scene, I cannot recommend the Eicher Center, and all of my other vendors enough. I believe some of my photos are posted as an example and my wedding was the one with the pumpkins on the table and I am wearing the tea length, lace dress. Thank you to everyone that made my day unforgettable! :D

Perfect for Small Intimate Weddings!

My husband and I were married at this location on May 7th 2011 and it was perfect for our small (60 guest) wedding. Jimmy is amazing and I have gone back several times since then and chatted with him. We will be using this location again when we renew our vows in 2021 and I... Read More cannot wait! I recommend the Eicher Center to everyone I know that is having a small, intimate wedding.

Perfect Venue for a Small Wedding

Reviewed on 6/16/2014 Jennifer L

The Eicher Arts Historic Center was perfect for my small wedding (about 40 guests). The space is true to the photos, with lots of lovely spaces for different stages of the event and for photos. The historic building and the surrounding area are perfect for a vintage or natural... Read More theme. The coordinator, Jimmy, is sweet, helpful, and goes above and beyond to make sure the space is ready for your event. They do not set up for you, but they did offer advice and assistance, and added special touches to the landscaping like filling the planters with flowers in my wedding colors and doing their best to get a variety of flowers to bloom for my day. The space is also very event ready, with lots of outlets and hooks for hanging lights and decorations. Our caterer loved the full kitchen. We had the space for the entire weekend, so there was plenty of time to set up and tear down the event without causing undue headaches on the day of the wedding.
