Dreaming of planning your wedding at the historic Cameron Estate Inn in Mount Joy PA? Much like many of the other wedding venues I’ve showcased on the blog, The Cameron Estate Inn is an all-inclusive, fairytale wedding located in the Philadelphia area! The Cameron Estate is unique in that it works with couples planning both intimate-sized and larger-scale wedding days. They have a multitude of all-inclusive packages to suit your preferences. I’ll go over a few of my favorite details about this venue, in the blog below!
Curious to know exactly HOW historic the Cameron Estate Inn is? Its roots date all the way back to the 1738 William Penn land grant! The Cameron Estate was once the summer home to President Lincoln’s secretary of war, and later President Grant’s secretary of war. Can you imagine your guests mingling during cocktail hour regaling each other with chit-chat about the Americana built into the walls of your wedding venue? Amazing!
If you’re ready to make Cameron Estate Inn your Philadelphia area wedding venue, you’ll be happy to know that there are two unique locations on the property to choose from when planning your wedding ceremony. First is their Donegal Spring Garden. As you might imagine, this location is best suited for outdoor wedding ceremonies. The Donegal Spring Garden is located in the hollow of Cameron Woods and overlooks the Donegal Spring. While you say I do, your surroundings will be towering trees that create a naturally shaded canopy for you & your guests.

The second option for a wedding ceremony at the Cameron Estate Inn is The Conservatory, which is their indoor option. Adjacent to the entrance of the Inn, the conservatory overlooks the lawn through its sprawling floor-to-ceiling windows. In the Conservatory, you’ll find a marble fireplace to serve as the backdrop of your wedding altar. The Conservatory is a great location for couples looking for a wedding ceremony that embodies timeless elegance. Or, as an escape from the elements during the winter months. As wedding photographers, it’s easy to say that we usually have our “favorites” when it comes to multiple locations within a venue. But with the Cameron Estate Inn, we love the garden & the conservatory equally!
Wedding receptions at the Cameron Estate Inn are held in either the Spring View Ballroom or the Carriage House. Yes, this venue has a LITERAL carriage house! It was once the barn used to house the horse-drawn carriages of its residents. The carriage house has its own brand of charm with its high ceilings and unique architectural layout. Having a reception here is definitely for couples who are hosting a large-sized guest list for their reception! This space can accommodate up to 200 seated guests, including a cocktail hour at their Fireside Lodge.
A reception held in the spring view ballroom is all about elegance, with its crystal chandeliers, and marble fireplace. You & your guests will first enjoy a cocktail hour held on the sun porch before heading inside for dinner and dancing. In-house services at the Cameron Estate Inn include full catering staff, event coordination, and rentals. So there’s no stressing about hiring outside vendors to bring your wedding reception to life! And if you’re dreaming of an epic wedding day send-off, the Cameron Estate Inn also gives you the option of a fun sparkler send-off to close out the night!
