The Details


The Holly Farm’s comprehensive wedding packages are designed to make the planning process fun, smooth, and simple. Unlike what you’ll find at other facilities, we believe in disclosing all of your costs upfront.

Each of our three wedding packages includes sleeping accommodations for up to 24-28 people and exclusive use of the entire estate!  Choose from our three different Garden Hacienda Wedding Packages:

Santa Lucia: 2-night, 3 day package

Magnolia: Our more extensive 3-night, 4-day package including 2 massages, a case of bubbles, tables and chairs for up to 200 people, market umbrellas, heat lamps + more

Paraiso (Paradise): The luxurious 5-night, 6-day package with too many items included to list!

Keep in mind that in order to help you eliminate some of the more tedious detail work surrounding your event, The Holly Farm is happy to coordinate your Friday or Saturday evening wedding rehearsal and facilitate your on-site Saturday or Sunday wedding and reception.

PLANNING TIP: Off-set a significant portion of your package expense! As you budget, don’t forget to factor in your friends’ contributions for staying on-site during your time at The Holly Farm. Your people want to be with you, They will happily steal away from work to spend a few amazing days together in Carmel. Even a minimal nightly contribution from on-site guests will greatly reduce your bottom line.

Many planning services are included:

  • Customized weekend schedule provided
  • Wedding day timeline and suggestions
  • Day-of-event coordination assistance

Local, seasonal, organic, always.  Each menu at The Holly Farm is created in a private menu consultation with our talented and experienced chef. We have numerous sample menus from which you can cull ideas…and we encourage you to bring in a list of your favorite dishes.

While you are welcome to provide your own food during your stay (cook on-site in The Adobe Hacienda’s well-equipped kitchen, stock up the houses as you wish, cook/host your own rehearsal dinner and/or brunch up to 40 people), we do require clients to use our in-house catering company for the food and service on the wedding day.  Trust us, you and your guests are sure to be in gastronomic heaven!


In working with our clientele who come from all across the country and around the world, we have compiled a list of some of the best vendors in the industry.  This group espouses our same philosophies and are familiar with the nuances and expansiveness of the estate.

A vendor’s comfort with the space simplifies the planning process on your end. The stars on our referral list have strong reputations in their respective fields and exemplify exceptional quality of service and heart.

You are more than welcome to hire or bring in vendors that are not listed by The Holly Farm. If you or someone in your community is crafty and artsy, feel free to bring those talents to the table!
