Update From The Booking House

Posted February 19, 2021

We want our guests to feel confident that we take Covid-19 very seriously and have made multiple improvements in our building to ensure the safety of guests, vendors, and staff. These precautions are as follows:

  1. We have provided additional sanitary stations throughout the venue for guest and vendor use.
  2. Our staff is required to take their temperatures upon arrival to ensure they are able to work safely with others, they will be wearing masks throughout each event as well as gloves during the room flips, and an additional staff member has been scheduled for each event to simply clean the venue (wipe down commonly touched surfaces, fill sanitary stations if needed, etc.).
  3. We have made a large investment in all of our HVAC systems in the building. We have installed Phenomenal Air, which is a cold plasma generator technology that kills bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants.
  4. We are also making adjustments to layouts to allow for further social distancing for guests during ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

We are still only a phone call or email away if anyone needs assistance during this time. Please feel free to email/call our office if you have any questions or concerns.

Your Wedding day is approaching fast, and you re starting to worry about the small logistics and details of the day. Don’t worry too much, especially if you have hired a Day of Coordinator (we have an awesome one on staff, Brittany Little) to create your timeline. But what about the morning of? What do your bridesmaids and you need to bring in order to have a stress free glam up before the ceremony and reception? After tying the knot this past June along with working during the day of the majority of weddings at The Booking House I have developed a list of things I think are essential that morning time.

Meggan & James Featured on Artfully Wed

Posted May 24, 2018

“After a ten year relationship and attending 30 weddings together prior to their own, Meggan and James decided to tie the knot! The Booking House in Manheim, which is a restored 1800s cigar factory, combined the rustic/chic feel the bride was hoping for with her groom’s more industrial style. The most important thing for the couple was to host an event not only a reflection of their love, but of their fun personalities and relationship…” Read more on the Artfully Wed Blog

Cultured Wedding Workshop with Timbrel Chyatee

Posted April 5, 2018

It was a few months ago that Timbrel reached out to us with her idea to start a cultured wedding workshop for Lancaster area photographers and wedding planners. the goal of the workshops were to teach our wedding vendors about different cultures and their wedding traditions. We loved the idea and were honored to host the first Cultured Wedding Workshop! Here are a few highlights from that day taken by Garnet Dahlia Photography. Stay tuned for her next workshop in May that will focus on Greek wedding traditions and culture!

Brandon & Kim’s October Wedding

Get Inspired – Fall Wedding Ideas

This wedding reception was oh so cozy! Since we are a year round facility we get to see every season of weddings. Its hard to pick a favorite time of the year, but there is something special about fall weddings. The weather outside is cool and crisp and The Booking House is kept cozy and warm throughout the event. This bride actually “DIY-ed” her decor for her autumn reception. She used gold pumpkins on wood stump slices as her centerpieces and enlisted her groomsmen to set up the room. The fall theme was very elegant and practical. What are your favorite ideas for a fall wedding?

“A Cozy Blush October Wedding” – Lauren Fair Photography

AbbyAdnanPasic_LFP287(pp_w780_h520)There is something so special about our couples who booked their wedding with us before we had even finished renovations. Abby and Adnan were   such a special couple to us. They had one of the largest weddings we have ever had here and we loved seeing the blend of their families on their special day! Abby’s wedding style looked like it was straight out of an Anthropologie store from the handcrafted farmhouse tables with eucalyptus runners to the blush dresses that the bride and bridesmaids wore. Our hearts were full watching the families celebrate together! We wish the best for Abby & Adnan and we are happy to share their photos captured by Lauren & Tim Fair!

Rettew’s Catering March Tasting Event

Posted April 7, 2015

On Sunday March 29th we had the pleasure of hosting a Tasting for Rettew’s Catering at The Booking House. Everything was amazing from their delicious dinner and appetizer selections to the cake samples and macaroons! We worked with Lori from Wildflowers By Design to bring in some florals and decor for the event and her designs looked gorgeous and complimented our venue perfectly. It was so nice to have 3 West Productions join us as well to perform live during the event, they are the perfect wedding band. I was so happy to see how well everything turned out, better than I could have imagined! I love looking back on the photos that Brittney Kreider Photography took that day. Her amazing and clear photos take me right back to that wonderful Sunday afternoon. When you work with a quality vendor, you are guaranteed a quality product! Thank you to everyone who attended that day, we hope to see you again soon!

Helping to make that “Happily Ever After”

Posted January 22, 2015

It’s so great to hear from our couples after their wedding day at The Booking House. Being a key part in making someone’s big day special is just another reason we love our job!

“Michaela & Family:

THANK YOU! Those words do not even begin to express our gratitude for everything you did to help make our wedding day perfect. From the moment we met with JP to tour the venue space (while it was nothing but a gutted building, with no heat in the middle of last winter!), we knew this was where we were to be married. You fulfilled all our our needs, answered all of our concerns, and helped make our wedding a wonderful memory. It was absolutely perfect and we can’t thank you enough.

To your whole staff, and everyone who had any part of this past Saturday – THANK YOU! Thank you for making our wedding as perfect as I had always dreamed it would be.

Brooke & Derek”

Why we love the wedding industry

Posted December 2, 2014

Before we opened in July, we had just started researching the wedding business and we could not believe how many quality vendors and friendly people we would come across. Jordan Bush was one of the first photographers to snap a couple photos of The Booking House and share them with us. We were so excited to see the photos from our Ribbon Cutting Event on his blog shortly after our opening. We have grown to become good friends with Jordan and he was even kind enough to post this endorsement on our Wedding Wire profile. Thanks Jordan!

“Everything about the Booking House is totally refreshing and exciting! For starters, it is a family owned & operated event venue. If you haven’t discovered it already, the Perrons are amazing to work with. They have a sincere, authentic approach and are genuinely interested in taking care of their guests. They are exceptionally welcoming, a lot of fun, easy to connect with, and very creative to work with. The space itself can accommodate more intimate gatherings of up to 100 or larger events up to 250. The two sided fireplace shared by the main rooms is an amazing centerpiece to both. When you enter the building and walk up the stairs, you’ll turn to enter the grand Rizzardi Room, and if it doesn’t take your breath away, it must be dark. The exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting of the renovated cigar warehouse make for an exquisite setting full of warm character. The Crow’s Nest above is another favorite: a cigar style lounge with huge leather furniture and a bar. There isn’t a venue I’ve photographed in seven years that has the atmosphere and soul of the Booking House, and very few are even comparable in quality. It’s easy to get everything setup with the assistance of an elevator, electrical outlets are conveniently located, and parking close by across the street. Every occasion I get to work with the Perrons at the Booking House is one I absolutely look forward to!”

Amanda’s review on The Knot

Posted October 30, 2014

It’s always so rewarding to hear from your past brides after the wedding day is over. Its so amazing to watch their dreams unfold and to hear their reactions afterwards. This was a review we got on our profile on The Knot from one of first brides to book! Thanks Amanda, congratulations to you & Nick!

“Wedding Of My Dreams!
If your looking for a classy, vintage, brick and wood setting, this is the place for you. Not only is the Booking House beautiful on the inside and out, their service is wonderful and personal. They are very accommodating and truly care about your special day. You can rent 1 or more rooms depending on your guest count. Rettews catering is right across the street which makes planning and service on your wedding day a breeze! The Booking House and Rettews was the best set of team members I could have ever had for my special day.”


Chad & Jessica’s Kind Words

Posted September 22, 2014

It’s always so rewarding to hear what our brides have to say after their weddings. This was a review we received from our wedding held this past weekend. Chad & Jessica were a great couple to work with and we wish them the best! Thanks for the kind words!

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about The Booking House. We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the venue on 9/20/14 and everything went so smoothly thanks to our venue. They helped work with our vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page before our event and they communicated with my husband and I throughout the whole process. They are a very new venue but ALL the details were planned so well I would have thought they’ve been in business for 20 years. The decor and feel in the venue were everything I was looking for my wedding, everything is so beautiful and perfect here. I HIGHLY recommend booking with this venue if you are looking for a venue that’s easy to work with that has a beautiful chic and rustic feel.” – Jessica

Pretzels Before Vows

Posted September 16, 2014

This past weekend we had yet another adorable wedding! We were so thrilled to be hosting Kim & Craig’s wedding, because they were one of the first couples to come and tour our building before any work was done to it. They booked on complete faith and they were thrilled with how it turned out. Kim made a lot of the decorations herself and it really added a personal touch to her wedding. One of my favorite parts was the Auntie Annes truck outside serving pretzels to guests as they arrived. It was a the perfect snack to hold them over during the ceremony!  We were so impressed by her DIY details and even more impressed that her daughter was getting married on Sunday! We couldn’t believe that they were hosting two weddings in one weekend but they pulled it off. So happy for the newlyweds! Congratulations Kim & Craig!


Kevin & Carolyn’s Colorful Summer Wedding

Posted September 10, 2014

The cooler weather is here and it’s time to say farewell to beach days, picnics, and summer weddings. It’s so hard to say hello to autumn when we receive photos from our weddings over the summer. One of our favorite summer looks was Kevin & Carolyn’s colorful DIY wildflower wedding. The bright yellows, purples, oranges , and pinks found in her flowers looked adorable in mason jars. We love her colorful look, and we’re certainly going to miss the long warm days of summer!
