The property passed through many owners, and by the 1930s, James and Sarah Kerney added decorative English gardens. In the 1960s, HollyHedge became a school for performing arts until it was sold yet again. By 1994, the Luccaro family purchased the property and transformed it into an elegant country wedding venue. Today, the Luccaros continue to embrace the estate’s rich history by restoring original architectural details and inviting couples to celebrate their love.

HollyHedge Estate is literally the perfect wedding venue! My wife dreamed of getting married here and it surpassed all expectations. Michelle, Meredith, Gabbi and the rest of the staff were amazing! They are all so friendly, responsive, and care about every little detail. Our other vendors even commented on how well they run things here. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous at any time of year for an indoor or outdoor wedding. The food was delicious and they have some very unique options. The rooms at the inn are awesome as well and its so convenient for you and your closest guests to stay right on premises. They were really great with all the safety measures they took for covid as well. It's incredible how smooth everything went. Can't recommend and thank HH enough for such an amazing wedding day!Sent on 12/08/2020

Where to begin ... traditional wedding planning is known to be stressful. But right from the start, HollyHedge Estate (More particularly Michele, Meredith & Gabbi) gave us a very different feeling. You'll know from your first meeting with them that HollyHedge operates on a totally different level.
All three of the event planners were incredible. They're thorough, qualified and most importantly confident. From the smallest of details, they quite literally think of and plan for everything. Even when the COVID pandemic threw a wrench in our wedding plans, the event staff was on top of it. It's hard to even remember how many times we had to reimmagine our wedding in the months leading up to it as Pennsylvania consistently changed their policies.
But through it all, we somehow knew that HollyHedge was going to pull it off and boy did they ever. Our day (Even the weather - although I'm not sure they can claim responsibility for that) was simply extraordinary. Every single detail that we had dreamed of and planned was put into effect. The food was incredible (Our guests still talk to us about the Filet Mignon with Garlic Aioli and Frizzled Onions) and the staff was wonderful.
During a year that was tumultuous in many ways, we were so thankful that for even just one weekend all of that disappeared. We were fortunate that our guests got to experience so much of what HollyHedge has to offer. With our Rehearsal Dinner at 1740 House which was excellent by the way (The staff there were even better then the food though) and our guests staying at both 1740 House and HollyHedge - there wasn't a single person that was disappointed.
I know what you're thinking, so many of the venue reviews sound like this, but trust us, there is a reason that HollyHedge wins awards year after year and it's not just because of how incredible the property is - it's the people there that will truly make your wedding extraordinary.Sent on 02/06/2021

Holly Hedge has not only an amazing historic location with amazing grounds, it has the nicest staff of professionals on site to make any event amazing. The food is great and the fact that there are so many different spaces to use to create that magical day is amazing. You cannot go wrong with Holly Hedge.
It's always a pleasure working at Holly Hedge Estates. As a vendor we find their staff so helpful and flexible which is so important to allowing us to create the dream wedding for our couples, not to mention the place is gorgeous!
Holly Hedge is a beautiful place to shoot video and photography for your wedding day. Convenient and quaint cottages you can rent out for the whole bridal party. Relax and take your time getting ready, skip the limo, and have everything in one location. The staff is so friendly and very quick to move all the chairs inside when a storm threatened the intended outdoor ceremony. I was very impressed how prepared they were to get it done quickly. The food was great, a very private location to spend the day with your family. The decorations and flowers were lovely. One of my favorite locations to cover video, always a great day, and wonderful occasions here. A magical place, with frogs even! There are so many little corners to take pictures, its really a delight! Every time I have gone to Holly Hedge it is always the best time, the nicest videos and photography.
