 Here you will find an intimate space to host your wedding ceremony, a reception hall for your family or class reunion, meeting space for your next business retreat or small conference, or, that one-of-a-kind, unique “outside-the-box” event venue that everyone will remember. Let the Susquehanna River Valley Visitors Bureau be your resource as you plan the perfect event.

Weddings and Receptions

Wedding and reception planners will delight in the variety of options our region has to offer. Plan a traditional wedding at Bucknell University’s stunning Rooke Chapel or create a one-of-a-kind event at Central Oak Height’s scenic outdoor chapel or our Historic Art Deco Campus Theatre. Other options include landscaped grounds of Victorian homes, scenic outdoor vistas, historic churches or even a covered bridge. You will not be disappointed!
