Rebecca & James Discover A Hidden Gem In Lancaster At The Cork Factory Hotel

Posted on May 26th, 2016 in Weddings by Olivia Marcozzi

While we never get tired of the many, gorgeous venues that Philadelphia has to offer, the Philip Gabriel Photography team is always thrilled to discover new, one-of-a-kind locations in the surrounding area!

Take our latest featured wedding, where we traveled to Lancaster to photograph Rebecca and James’ spring wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel. Although it has recently been restored, this cork factory from the 1800s still has a sense of romantic allure and rustic charm that you can only find outside of the city.

The building is comprised of floor-to-ceiling exposed brick, spacious hardwood floors, and a soaring roof marked by wooden rafters. The open space is perfect for a modern bride who is looking for a rustic, yet timeless space. The reception space is adorned with charming chandeliers and a brick fireplace. The Hotel even has rooms with cork-lined walls and an outdoor terrace.

Lancaster is one of those beautiful towns that has really begun to thrive over the last few years. In addition to a budding night life and restaurant scene, the town is flanked by some of the most stunning scenery of open farmland and nearby parks. There is even a historic covered bridge, where the Philip Gabriel Photography team captured Rebecca and James stealing a kiss or two!

The only thing that rivaled the beautiful scenery was the beautiful couple! Rebecca was a stunning bride, and she and her new husband were all smiles the entire day. The sun shone brightly over Lancaster, and the magnolia trees were in full bloom.

Between Rebecca’s gorgeous lace gown, James’ adoring glances, and the lovely venue, we captured more heartwarming moments than we could count! We were so honored to be a part of the happy couple’s wedding day, and loved documenting the memories that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Congratulations, Rebecca and James, and thank you for choosing Philip Gabriel Photography on your special day!
