The capital city of Pennsylvania has it all: historic architecture, peaceful green parks, the beautiful Susquehanna River, and modern industrial spaces, all of which are great for planning a wedding. Couples can opt to rent an entire farmhouse property for an indoor-outdoor bash, celebrate their nuptials with great beer and close friends at a brewpub bar overlooking the brewery operations, or in a modern performing arts center with a stage and a concert worthy AV setup.

In Harrisburg, there are open-vendor venues that allow couples to plan every detail their own way, and also venues that act as a one-stop shop in order to ensure that planning a wedding is as low stress as possible, but the only thing that is for certain is that a wedding in Harrisburg will be an unforgettable event.
