About Glen Ellen Farm

Glen Ellen Farms is a historic ranch wedding venue in the greater Washington, D.C. area. This rustic outdoorsy wedding venue features 30 acres of hilly meadows and winding streams, as well as a stone patio overlooking a pond. Couples will find this venue 18 minutes from Frederick, Maryland and 55 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 300 guests can join couples on their special day at Glen Ellen Farms. Couples can wed on this venue’s expansive property, with one of the most popular wedding sites being the pond. Couples can exchange vows on a small circular stone patio overlooking the pond after the wedding party processes down the stone path between the rows of folding chairs set up neatly in the grass. Nearby, couples will discover a pergola structure built just in front of a stone wall. They can choose to have the wedding ceremony here for more space if they wish, with the wall as their backdrop. Tented receptions can be held on the farm in flexible locations, with the pond or manor house in the background. The classic white house makes a wonderful setting for reception backdrops or wedding portraits.

History
This 1950s Greek Revival home was once inhabited by Lady Ellen Thompson, presumed ghostwriter of the romance novel, Lorna Doone. It was purchased by Ellen and her husband, Professor Herbert Thompson, in 1874. They purchased the manor from John Brown, who used discarded wooden railroad rails for the rafters and joists in building the house’s framing.

    Perfect Place for Our Fall Wedding

    We absolutely LOVED having our wedding at Glen Ellen Farm! The scenery is gorgeous and there are so many places for the guests to hang out and soak up the night. From the barn ruins (our favorite part!), to the lake to the manor house - so much GORGEOUS in one place.

    Glen Ellen Farm is gorgeous, meticulously maintained and well-run wedding venue. The owner Deb is wonderful from the first tour to all the detailed emails to acting as host on your special day. My husband and I visited other venues in the Frederick County area, but as soon as we walked on to this property, we were blown away. From the barn ruin area, beach to tent, every inch of this property is stunning. Deb works so hard to maintain a gorgeous location with details including fresh flowers, beautiful string lights and gorgeous farmhouse. Deb and her staff are attentive, caring and easy to work with. During our entire wedding experience, my husband and I felt that Deb was just as excited for our day as we were. If you are looking for your dream venue, look no further than Glen Ellen. Its beauty, care and management are truly unmatched!

    Glen Ellen Farm is an amazingly beautiful venue that is sure to become a household name in wedding venues in the Frederick area. I worked with Debbie as a coordinator for the first wedding on this property in September and she is so amenable and easy to work with. She takes such care in every aspect of the property and with developing a relationship with the wedding couple. I am looking forward to working with Debbie for many more weddings in the years to come.
