This spectacular private estate is a sanctuary, nestled along the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, where those you are closest to have the opportunity to spend sun-kissed days and star-filled nights together in The Holly Farm’s intimate village-like atmosphere.
Family owned and operated since 1991, this seven-acre Carmel hideaway was created exclusively for destination weddings or for those looking for a unique experience where you and your closest family and friends can spend a weekend together at your own private wedding oasis.
The demands of today’s fast-paced world rarely afford most of us the time to gather at length with all of our family and friends. We feel that the intention, time, energy and financial investment it takes to bring all of your loved ones together for a wedding celebration deserves more than the 4 or 5 rushed hours that most reception sites offer.
Walk through The Holly Farm’s welcoming rustic gate and enter a secluded world of romantic winding paths and private sun-filled cottages tucked away among exotic palms, towering bamboo, banana trees and sweetly scented blossoms.
A wedding at The Holly Farm is a celebration of love, as well as a true reunion (and sometimes the introduction) of friends and family. Our estate is your home away from home and the The Holly Farm’s gardens serve as the central gathering place for all of your friends and family members that are staying off site.
Our many years of experience and our familiarity with the grounds allow us to guide and give you freedom to experiment with different design elements, ceremonial ideas, and choose what best speaks to your vision. Unlike other facilities that do multiple weddings on the same day, or multiple events each weekend, each couple planning with The Holly Farm gets our undivided attention to detail.
