  • My husband and I got married on July 25th at Rock Ford Plantation, while we had an AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL day...Rock Ford was a very hard company to work with. We hired Rock Ford 1 year out from our original date (April 4th-had to be moved due to COVID) and within that year gone through 3 rental coordinators. We had very little communication and did not even know our first rental coordinator was no longer there until I had a few questions! Unfortunately, communication was lacking on their end and it caused a very stressful time especially when it came down to have to reschedule our wedding. Be warned, that when they say rental coordinator, they coordinator, does not coordinate ANYTHING but sign the contract. Our last coordinator was not even there the weekend of our wedding. Again we had an amazing and beautiful wedding but if I could do it again, it would not have been with Rock Ford Plantation. Thank you to Sam though who made things right and tried to communicate with me when the coo... Read more

    Hello Arraya, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that despite the unusual circumstances caused by COVID, we were able to accommodate a date change for your wedding so that, in the end, you were still able to celebrate at Historic Rock Ford and have a beautiful day! The year 2020 has not been without its difficulties. After over 15 years with the same rental coordinator, we had two staff changes in less than a year due to personal circumstances beyond our control. This unexpected change in staff was not easy for couples during this time, nor for Rock Ford, and we are sorry that you experienced some turbulence during this period of transition. Add to that the rescheduling of many events due to COVID, and it was the perfect storm. Like so many small businesses, we may only hope that the difficult period that our entire nation has been struggling through will never happen again. We wish you a truly blessed and happy marriage!

  • I can't say enough about Rock Ford. We are a gay couple, living in a very conservative Lancaster County. From the moment we met Meagen, we felt comfortable being us. We didn't have to change who we were. Being two guys, not knowing anything about weddings or how to do the wedding, Meagen helped us from step 1 till the final step. The site was gorgeous, lots of wild deer, cool history and house. This site was way more affordable then the other competitors out there and definitely worth every penny.

    Dave, Thank you so much for your kind review! I am so happy you chose Rock Ford for your wedding! It was an honor to be a part of your special day. I enjoyed meeting you, Kenn and your lovely families. Your love for each other is truly inspiring and I wish you an abundance of happiness in your very bright future together. All my best, Meagen Lebo Rental Coordinator Rock Ford Plantation

  • The Rock Ford is a beautiful place to have a wedding! There are so many places for great photos and the barn is very nice inside. The Rental Coordinator, Meagen, is wonderful to work with. She went out of her way before and during the wedding to make sure everything went great! I would definitely recommend Rock Ford!

  • This is a perfect place for a wedding. It is absolutely beautiful. We had the ceremony in front of the house, and there were deer watching in the background. We had our reception in the barn, and got the tent outside for dancing and cocktails. This is a DIY venue, and I'm so glad I chose it because I was able to make the wedding everything I wanted it to be. Nancy was wonderful to work with. She was great at keeping in touch and quick to answer any questions. You get the venue for the entire weekend which made setting up much less stressful, and clean up could wait until Sunday! Every one of my guests commented that this was the perfect place for a wedding!

  • My wedding at the Rock Ford Plantation was absolutely wonderful! Nancy was great in responding to me about all of my questions in a very quick and professional manner. The property is so nice and well maintained. All of my guests said the property and decorations matched the personalities of myself and my husband. We even had people dressed in costumes from the 1700s to match the history of the Rock Ford. It was perfect! Thank you Nancy and the Rock Ford staff!

  • If you are looking to customize every detail of your wedding, definitely take a look at Rock Ford! We were on a tight budget, and though the venue took up the biggest chunk of that budget, we were able to pick every other vendor and detail of our wedding, and DIYed most of it! Nancy was very helpful in answering all of our questions, and making sure she could accommodate all of our requests to the best of her ability. Though some of our older family members had some trouble getting around the property and using the tight restrooms, everyone raved about how beautiful and unique the venue was. Being able to set up the day before and tear down the day after our wedding was an invaluable option, and we used every minute of that time to transform the barn and tent to our liking. This venue was perfect for us, because we were looking to save some money by planning and decorating everything ourselves, and we wanted the flexibility to make it unique to us, but if you aren't willing to take on ...

  • What a perfect place for a wedding!! The venue provided tables and chairs, they aloud ample time for set up and take down, without all the restrictions of many of the other venues. The staff (Nancy) is there if needed but aloud me to function without her hovering over my every move. If you are planning a DIY/Pinterest type wedding this place is for you.

  • We had our wedding at Rock Ford Plantation on 9/28/13. We fell in love with Rock Ford on our very first visit. The barn, the grounds, and the historic house were just gorgeous, we knew it would be perfect for us. Nancy was always very approachable and answered any questions we had within a day or two. She does not use email, however, she would ALWAYS return calls within a few hours to one day. The grounds keeper Brian, who we met the day of, always was very kind, and definitely kept everything clean, the grass well cut, and was a very professional parking attendant. We had a simply perfect day. Our ceremony was in front of the house. We used the barn for our buffet, bar, and more of a hangout room during the cocktail hour and reception. And we had a tent for the reception. Everyone gave us a million compliments and also loved it as much as we did. My only one complaint is that since it is within a park, there may be other people on the grounds. Prior to our wedding, there we... Read more

  • We just had our wedding here on 5/17/14 and I couldn't have been happier with our experience at Rock Ford. It is one of the more affordable places in Lancaster and it is so beautiful there. It's also very private since you have use of the whole grounds. It was so great to be able to set up on Friday and clean up on Sunday. It made our wedding day so much more enjoyable knowing we didn't have to rush everyone out at night so we could clean up. While it is a lot of work to set everything up and coordinate all of the vendors, it was definitely worth it. We saved a ton of money on the alcohol alone since we could supply our own and not have to buy it from the venue, which probably saved us a few thousand. No one at our wedding had ever been there before as most were from out of the area, but we got so many compliments. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how great it was there. Nancy is also very responsive through email or phone. And she is always willing to show you the barn wh... Read more

  • I had my wedding ceremony and reception at Historic Rock Ford Plantation. It's a beautiful site for a wedding, but more costly than similar places in Lancaster. They provide about chairs and tables for 80 people, so if you have a bigger guest list, you'll need to rent more. Historic Rock Ford did offer a discount for use at Grand Rental to rent supplies from there. They also have a barn where a small reception could be held. I had to rent tents have have the reception next to the barn with the food and drinks in the barn. Nancy (the Rock Ford contact person) is a little hard to get a hold of, but very helpful and nice. It's a great place to have a reception where there are no rules--just do what you want and clean up after yourself.
