We LOVED having Rockford Plantation as the venue for our wedding! It was such a beautiful setting and we enjoyed having the flexibility to make our day exactly how we wanted it. The ability to set up the day before and tear down the day after, was a huge stress-reliever. Nancy was so kind and such a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding. My husband and I were extremely happy with Rockford Plantation and are so glad we got married there!
This location was perfect for our wedding day. Our ceremony was in front of the historic house which provided a beautiful backdrop to our wedding. The barn was perfect for our 100 guests. We loved being able to set up the barn on Friday and that we had the choice to come back Sunday to clean up. Definitely a wonderful location for any wedding.
This venue was absolutely everything we wanted and dreamed of for both our ceremony and reception. Nancy is also amazing to work with! Beautiful place and great staff....great place for your special day and affordable too.

The Historic Rockford Plantation was a beautiful setting for my wedding. The barn is perfect for smaller wedding while those with a larger guest list can be accommodated with outside services.

Great location, very flexible with set up and take down which is greatly appreciated by the DIY bride! If tour weather permits skip the tent and let the barn be your backdrop. Tables and chairs provided just and over all no frills great venue.
Perfect Venue for meReviewed on 11/19/2012 Megan K
Rockford Plantation is a great venue for do-it-yourselfers! It is beautiful, especially if you are going a bit "rustic" in your theme. We saved a lot of money having our wedding during the "off season" and when renting we got access to the venue the whole weekend (Friday-Sunday)! So we were able to set up most everything the day before and finish clean up the day after to really just enjoy our wedding day! This is a venue where you either want to do a lot yourself or hire a wedding coordinator as the venue itself does not have someone there to assist the day of your wedding. It was perfect for us!
Beautiful!!!Reviewed on 11/08/2011 Detra D
Rock Ford Plantation is a very historic, secluded venue that you will not be disappointed with! It is outside of Lancaster city, but found in the local community park. The plantation is a lot of "do it yourself" but there is much flexibility to make your wedding day exactly how you envisioned it! Would recommend Rock Ford to anyone who wants to be totally in charge of all the plans and activities that are associated with the wedding! There is a historic plantation home and barn that is absolutely gorgeous for a wedding ceremony and reception! Everyone attending will be completely impressed!
