Bear Creek Resort, Hotel Bethlehem, Renaissance Hotel Allentown

Bear Creek

This resort is perfect for those who love the outdoors but also a bit of luxury. Bear Creek offers 330 acres of property including: three reception rooms and ceremony sites, a hotel and spa, two restaurants, and pools and hot tubs. All of this comes with amazing views of the surrounding mountains and exceptional service. Bear Creek is now offering 2021 wedding packages. Be sure to check out their site to find the perfect package for you.

“This is one of my favorite places to shoot in the Lehigh Valley. The property is expansive so it offers endless options for portraits- day and night. Since I’ve gotten to work at Bear Creek so many times, I have covered just about every inch of it. Being secluded and all-inclusive means that this venue is low-stress. To top it off, my experiences with the staff have always been great.”

Hotel Bethlehem

Hotel Bethlehem has hosted many events from political figures to performers, and athletes. This is a remarkable place if you want your wedding to go down in Hotel Bethlehem history. Enjoy their elegant accommodations not only for your guests but for the happy couple. Hotel Bethlehem offers two ballrooms as well as outdoor areas for your ceremony. Visit their website to find out more on their wedding packages and services they provide. 

“Hotel Bethlehem is a well-known Lehigh Valley venue. It’s located in downtown Bethlehem, which is a fun and energetic place to be, especially during Musikfest or the holidays. The venue itself is like a museum, full of history and tradition. As for the staff they make it run like a top-notch wedding machine. They ensure that every wedding is as close to perfect as possible.  Fun fact: I am one of a handful of photographers who was allowed the opportunity to shoot on their rooftop.”

Renaissance Allentown

If you prefer the feel of a city for your venue, the Renaissance Allentown might be what you are looking for. The Renaissance can accommodate up to 280 of your loved ones in their 10 event rooms. This hotel includes an incredible culinary team, high powered AV equipment, and stunning backdrops. Search their site for capacity charts and room set-up examples.

“The Renaissance looks like it belongs in Philadelphia or New York, not downtown Allentown. One of the best features of this venue is the rooftop overlooking Allentown. This can be found just a footstep outside of the reception space. Some of our favorite photographs we’ve ever taken were shot here. My favorite memory was being taken through the penthouse a day after Elton John had stayed there.”
