Why We Love Allenberry Resort

It’s hard to imagine a more gorgeous backdrop to say “I do!” in than Allenberry Resort.

Tucked perfectly at the base of the mountains in Cumberland Valley, Emerald Stone Photography has fallen completely head over heels in love with this venue. Allenberry Resort offers incredible natural views in a quiet and welcoming setting that is perfect for the whole family.


This gorgeous venue was originally founded in the late 1700s by relatives of Davy Crockett, and over its long history, it transitioned from an agricultural success to the incredible resort it is today.

We are so excited every time one of Emerald Stone couples ties the knot at Allenberry. Here are some of the top reasons why.

The Incredible Views


There isn’t a time of year that’s a bad time to get married at Allenberry Resort. It is ALWAYS beautiful. This is in part because of the lovely natural scenery that this resort is nestled in.

You get not only the natural rolling hills of Central Pennsylvania; you get all the wonderful colors that this part of the country has to offer.


One of our favorite parts of weddings at Allenberry are ceremonies beside the Yellow Breeches Creek. A gently running creek helps set the stage for not only a wonderful experience for your wedding guests… it makes for incredible photos!

Meaghan and Dan held their beautiful winter wedding at Allenberry Resort, and we still can’t stop crushing on how perfect their photos came out. It’s great when Mother Nature helps!


The Historic Homes

Allenberry Resort isn’t just a wedding venue; it’s a destination experience for your guests.

The grounds are filled with unique, historic buildings to help your guests not only celebrate with you in style but rest up in total comfort.


Guests are able to rent one of the wonderful cottages, lodges, or historical homes at Allenberry during their stay… and what could be better than having your own cottage for the night?!

Allenberry also offers amazing locations for the wedding party to get ready for the best day ever. The Changes Day Spa is available onsite to help make you look picture perfect for your special day.


The Wedding Specialists

Allenberry Resort offers their couples a team of nothing but the best when it comes to wedding pros. A dedicated wedding specialist will help guide you and help bring your wedding dreams to reality.


Their award winning catering and florist services (via The JDK Group) is also available, and their food is nothing short of perfection. Customizable menus and a full service staff will make sure that your reception goes smoothly.

Allenberry Resort also offers outdoor fire pits… s’mores, anyone?


We hope you enjoy just a few of our favorite shots from Meaghan and Dan’s incredible wedding day at Allenberry Resort.  This venue is nothing short of beautiful, and we can’t wait for our upcoming weddings at this wonderful location!
