Military Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn Gettysburg, PA
Get Married on the Hallowed Ground of the Gettysburg Battlefield then Dine and Dance in a Certified Historic Civil War Barn
The History of the Property and Historic Barn
Set back in the beautiful countryside of Gettysburg, PA on the location of the South Cavalry Battlefield, Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn is a unique wedding venue with an intimate connection to the Battle of Gettysburg and the history of the United States Military. The beautifully restored 1809 field stone Farmhouse was both witness to the Battle of Gettysburg and headquarters for Union Major General Wesley Merritt, who served in the American Civil War, the American Indian Wars, and the Spanish - American War. Major General Wesley Merritt would also go on to become the superintendent of West Point in 1882. The Bed and Breakfast's thirty acre property was used by the Union Army as a camp location and the Historic Barn was utilized as a Union Army Field Hospital. Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn exists today as a living historical monument to the brave soldiers who fought and perished fighting for the cause of freedom and the future of our great nation. Every day at the Inn begins with a morning history presentation with one of our highly educated Civil War Historians. Afterwards, enjoy a delicious full breakfast prepared by our own breakfast cooks. We serve foods reminiscent of rural living, so expect scrumptious pan fried farm potatoes, farm fresh eggs, savory breakfast meats, and a fine selection of made from scratch baked goods.
Ceremonies and Receptions at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn
A Wedding at a Historic Bed and Breakfast is a very special occasion. The Wedding and Reception package includes use of our entire thirty acre property, the Historic Barn, and the Solarium Event Venue. The package includes an outdoor (or indoor) ceremony, either in our beautiful Wedding Garden or inside the Solarium. Many Brides and Grooms prefer to incorporate an indoor cocktail hour inside the Solarium after their ceremony, though you may also choose to do this outdoors on the lawn. Before the reception consider using our lawn spaces to play horseshoes, volleyball, or an outdoor game of your choosing. Receptions are held inside the Historic Barn - all tables, chairs, and tablecloths are included in the package. Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn will accommodate special seating arrangements for any guest(s) of honor in attendance at the reception, e.g. the seating of guests according to Military rank. Dance the night away with our talented DJ - the package includes a four hour DJ set with an end time of 10:00 PM. The barn can be decorated to the Bride and Groom's choosing, the bridal party is responsible for the set up and tear down of all decorations. In addition to the wedding day itself, the package also includes time on the property to decorate the Solarium and/or Historic Barn as well as a rehearsal dinner inside the Solarium. All tables and chairs requested for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception will be set up by the staff members of Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn prior to the event. At Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn you will find a caring and professional staff ready to make the wedding of your dreams come true.
