Barn Swallow Farm is an absolute gem venue in the Lehigh Valley. Located in the fields of Northampton, PA this barn and farm wedding venue is nestled between cornfields and stellar foliage with a variety of landscape everywhere you look. This barn feels like the back yard you’ve always dreamed of mixed with all the elegance you want out of a ballroom. The barn and getting ready areas are outfitted with gorgeous decor, and overall the entire venue has such a modern feel to it. Are you in a barn or a fancy gala?
Those same elements of home comfort and excitement are combined throughout the staff as well. Owners Rob and Kim Nappa are two of the most friendly, loving, and caring people you’ll ever meet. I’ve known them for years now, and I can say they’re as amazing outside of the wedding as they are on the day of.
Their staff and partnered vendors have the most careful attention to detail. Through planning, timelines, arrangement, communication and more, weddings at Barn Swallow Farm feel so comfortable and downright efficient. No detail goes unnoticed, and the care of you and your guests is the top priority. You truly can’t go wrong with choosing this team to handle your special day.

The Steelstacks in Bethlehem, PA and the ArtsQuest staff make for a truly hidden wedding venue. Most of you already know the Bethlehem Steel as a popular landmark, but what you might not know is that they also make for a wonderful wedding venue in the Valley!
The ceremony space has the massive stacks directly behind it, making for an amazing backdrop. With other industrial architecture every direction you look, this venue provides a seriously unique wedding vibe that you’ll be hard pressed to find in the Valley elsewhere.
The staff is very accommodating and as a vendor, they’re incredibly easy to work with! Their coordinators excel at making sure the day runs according to plan without needing to bother you about it!
Once your ceremony is over, the reception site moves into the main ArtsQuest building, with the giant SteelStacks in wonderful panoramic view through massive windows.
From a photographer’s point of view, this venue is right up my alley. The amount of variety you can get in pictures is crazy, and if you love that raw, modern industrial feel, this is a venue that should be at the top of your list!
Raw, industrial vibes
Very accomodating staff

Riverview Country Club is not your average country club. This wedding venue has good looks from the inside and out. Their interior architecture has high ceilings reminiscent of a ballroom, but take a step outside and immediately soak in the beautiful sunsets and forest fresh air.
After your beautiful ceremony, we get full reign on golf carts to drive around to all the best photo spots. Gorgeous landscapes, or intimate woodsy scenery are at every bend, and the results are always phenomenal.
The staff is very unobtrusive, always making sure to take care of every single one of your guests.
With the entire floor being available for dancing, the party doesn’t ever have to end! (Well, maybe when your reserved time is up). Either way, If you’ve come for a great combination of views and a great party, check out Riverview!

With elegant and passionately designed rooms, this inn feels like an artist’s mansion. Through each door is another room filled with antiques, decor with character, art, and so much more.
Boasting a setting of 300 acres of pristine farmland, surrounded by rolling hills, I don’t even need to explain to you how much there is to do here for your guests as well as you and your pictures.
The staff here is beyond personable. They truly know how to handle their guests. This staff will make sure that you and all of your guests fall in love with the place well before they leave.
Oh, and for the record the man in the picture is staff member Randy. He personally put on a fire dancing show for Sharon and Kermit’s wedding day. That should be a great indication of how amazing this place is!
Incredibly designed rooms and floor spaces
Feels like a Story Book location
So much land with Incredible views
Personable staff, will go out of their way to accommodate.
Woodstone Country Club is the second country club we’ve brought up, but how could we leave this beauty out?! With more scenic views and giant trees (one of which is covered in Christmas lights), this venue has a lot to offer.
With ceremonies happening on the outdoor patio with views stretching as far as the eye can see or on the grand staircase in the lodge, you really cant go wrong if you’re looking for a beautiful place to be married. And the sunsets? Unreal.
The catering is great here, and the staff keeps things moving at a wonderful pace! Woodstone understands that you’re looking to be stress-free with your wedding day, and their large amount of staff members all cater to that idea.
Woodstone also has an option to include an entire fireworks display to close out your big day. These shows are unreal, and how many of us can say that we’ve had our own personal stadium style fireworks show?!
Choices for indoor or outdoor ceremony, great for inclement weather
lovely staff team
Option for personal fireworks show
If you love the modern country cottage look, you’re going to love the feeling of walking around Glasbern Inn. Home of the most intimate locations and memorable scenery and landscape, this venue has an element of magic that’s so unique.
Walking throughout the grounds of the Inn, it’s not hard to see why so many couples rave about this beautiful wedding spot in Fogelsville. Everywhere you turn has the perfect combination of foliage and rustically designed buildings with so much character.
Glasbern has something for everyone. From smaller, more intimate weddings they have a petite ceremony option, all the way up to larger celebrations in the Grand Lodge. Outdoor ceremonies will see rolling hills and fields with farm animals glowing in the evening light. The views are to die for.
With amazing food and a staff that feels like your friends are taking care of you, Glasbern quite literally has it all. If you haven’t added this one to your list yet, I’d give it a look!

Bank Street Annex is a must have on any Lehigh Valley wedding venue list. Hosting a wonderfully grand “larger than life” wedding experience, this historic downtown Easton creates a wedding experience that’ll leave you and your guests feeling like a million bucks.
With several floors of rooms for both parties to get ready in and views of the Easton circle below you, it’s no surprise that couples that love the city fall so hard for what Bank Street Annex has to offer.
You can choose to have your ceremony inside the venue, or have it off site in any one of the local churches. Either way, many photo opportunities are just a quick block away using everything that downtown Easton has to offer.
The food is incredible, the open bar is, well. It’s an open bar, who’s not happy?
At night you can head out and get that iconic Bank Street Annex shot, with the lights glowing behind you. Then you can truly say you’ve gotten married there.
