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.

    Amazing Venue for a Wedding

    Glen Ellen was an incredible experience that helped to make my daughters wedding memorable. As the brides Dad I receive so many compliments about all aspects of the wedding ( 129 guests) that is made me feel great that we selected Glen Ellen. The staff was excellent to work with and really focused on the details of our event. Debra knows her venue and what works and does not. This advantage and her expert advice based on best in class weddings was beyond valuable. If your are seeking a great site for an outdoor wedding Glen Ellen is your best option. We looked at many venues and this one stood out far above all others in the Frederick MD area.

    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.
