Stone Mill Inn Wedding | Erin + Chris

Stone Mill Inn, getting ready, wedding

Erin and Chris were introduced through mutual friends during their first year of undergrad, when they were assigned the same dorm on opposite ends. They spent a lot of time together those first days after meeting–from attending a talk by Dr. Mae Jemison to a college rivalry football game. I love hearing how marriers originally crossed paths.

Erin and Chris got married this past weekend at Stone Mill Inn, where the grounds are lush and reminded them of Lord of the Rings. The couple played rock, paper, scissors to determine who would get to read their private vows first. They walked each other down the aisle for an incredibly romantic ceremony, complete with a cellist. The reception had many thoughtful details, including a customized crossword puzzle for guests to fill out on a whiteboard (loved the shoutout to Buffy)!

Everyone from the guests to the vendors were an absolute dream to work alongside. I especially loved infodumping about Lost with the team at Stone Mill Inn.

Stone Mill Inn offers several ceremony locations to choose from, including The Woodlands, which provided the perfect shade for guests in this early summer wedding. They also have The Abbey, which is a wooden, triangular structure on a brick path.

The wedding venue, which is less than 30 minutes away from Lancaster, also has a beautiful, airy historic mansion for getting ready on-site, and a large parking lot for guests. The Mill dates back to 1736 and is filled with historic touches that make it unique to York County.  There’s an abundance of water features and fountains throughout the grounds, which was incredibly tranquil to hear throughout the day’s festivities. Chandeliers are hung throughout the grounds outside, which adds to the romantic environment.

Adjacent to the venue’s brick courtyard, the reception’s white tent is draped softly with twinkle lights and crystal chandeliers. There’s even a 15-foot fireplace and wood-fired pizza oven, which serves as the perfect location for mingling and dancing.

Thanks to Erin and Chris for trusting me to document their wedding day. It was fun to mix it up and travel from the Philadelphia suburbs to the Lancaster area, where I had just visited the week before with my family.
