Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to plan a wedding?

Peak season at The Holly Farm is April to November. From November to March, smaller, off season weddings, corporate events and parties can be arranged.

Can we bring our own vendors?

You are welcome to bring in your own vendors, if desired. We share our comprehensive list of exquisitely talented vendors with all of our booked Holly Farm clients. You are welcome to provide your own food during your stay (stock the refrigerators, BYO eats for a self-hosted dinner, BBQ or small party, the rehearsal dinner and/or brunch- maximum 40 guests).  We do require clients to use our creative and flexible in-house catering company for food and service on the wedding day or for parties exceeding 40 people. Each menu at The Holly Farm is customized entirely to your specific tastes and will honor your community’s dietary needs!

What is your reservation policy?

We offer complimentary date holds for any couple that is seriously interested in a specific date! This is a no-cost hold that will guarantee you first right of refusal on the date should another couple wish it book it. If a date you are interested in is already on hold, you are welcome to be in the second hold position. A $5,000 deposit is required to officially book a wedding date.

Should you wish to hold a date sight unseen before you can come for a visit, there is a $5,000 hold deposit in order to do so.

Is there a guest minimum?

There is no guest minimum for any of our packages. Our smallest wedding was 14 people.

Can we bring our own wine, beer and champagne?

Unlike most wedding venues, wineries, and restaurants, you are welcome to BYO wine, beer and/or champagne to be served throughout your wedding weekend. Yes, you read that right! The savings offered on bar costs alone at The Holly Farm are huge. Furthermore, we are proud to share that we do NOT charge ANY corkage fees. Read that right, too! (The average cost of corkage fees elsewhere ranges from $15-$100 per bottle. Yikes!)  Our catering team is available to build bar menus to order if bringing in your own product does not suit your fancy.  Full Bar offerings are available in addition to beer and wine, and liquor service is arranged through our caterer exclusively.

What other fees are to be expected?

The Holly Farm does not charge any corkage, cake-cutting, candle-lighting, wifi, parking, or resort service fees!  There is a nominal (refundable) security deposit and a small transient occupancy tax charge.

How late can our celebration go?

The Holly Farm does not have a ‘lights out’ time.
