"The venues offered by Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites were incredible. We were married in the quaint Saal at the Moravian Museum in December. Our guests loved the historical value and the quaint feel of the museum. Afterwards, our party moved to the Luckenbach Mill for the cocktail hour and reception. Here we had liberty to decorate as we pleased adding lights and our own personal touches. Our guests cannot stop talking about how beautiful and unique the venues were!  Not to mention all of the wonderful backdrops for the stunning photos that were taken that day! Working with the prompt and welcoming site rental coordinator couldn’t have been any easier!! Getting married at the Historical Sites at Christmas time is a must… or any time for that matter!"
