About The Holly Farm

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. Family owned and operated since 1991, this chic seven-acre Carmel hideaway nestled against the Santa Lucia Mountains was created with destination weddings in mind. Each celebration in these impressive gardens encompasses multiple nights of stay, housing up to 28 guests on property is always included at no additional cost.


Fall gardens, blush and bashful color palette, palpable joy around every corner and oh, everyone just so happens to be GORGEOUS! http://youtu.be/AUWKPIHwmw4

Globetrotters Michelle and Robbie searched the world over before they found The Holly Farm. We were flattered to celebrate their April wedding here in the celestial splendor that they had dreamed of. https://vimeo.com/167003522

The Holly Farm was just hand-selected by Martha Stewart and Martha Stewart Weddings as one of only 11 remarkable wedding venues in the United States! Such an honor for this time-tested family business:

    I just had my Dream Wedding at The Holly Farm!! From the moment I first walked in, I fell in love with both the breathtakingly beautiful venue and the adorable Moses family!! Everyone kept telling me it was the best wedding venue they have ever been to, and that they didn’t remember stepping off the plane. It is a tropical paradise right here in CA. There is beauty everywhere you look. Erin, Ryan, their parents and the entire Holly Farm staff were so flexible and accommodating, you can’t help but feel relaxed even on one of the most stressful days of your life. If I could do it all over again, I would choose Holly Farm in a heartbeat.

    The Most Magical Place Ever
    Everything from our first tour to the the planning process to the actual wedding week was perfection. We could not have asked for a more welcoming family and staff. They truly catered to our every need. I was a bit nervous about not hiring a day of coordinator, as all of our friends recommended one but Erin and Ryan Moses went above and beyond what any coordinator could've done for us. Our guests were blown away at how special a place the Holly Farm is...even after spending 4 days on property, we were still discovering new nooks and crannies, each picture perfect.

    I was also a bit nervous about not being able to go with my own catering company but La Creme blew us away. Our guests commented that ours was the best wedding food they've ever had. The wait staff was extremely attentive..no one left hungry and no glasses were left empty for too long.

    We are already scheming for our next event at the Holly Farm...

    We absolutely adore The Holly Farm! Having been both a vendor and a guest at The Holly Farm we've had the opportunity to see both sides of the business and it's truly seamless. The most enchanting ambiance and location combined with the graciousness of its hosts make it truly unique and unmatched in every way. Highly recommend!

    Words cannot begin to describe how welcome we felt being on the property of the Moses family. I was hired to plan a wedding for my lovely bride and groom, and from the time we first visited the Holly Farm, to the time everyone left the property after the wedding, we always felt like we were right at home. Most of my contact was with Erin, and she was funny, entertaining, knowledgeable and helpful, full of wonderful suggestions and vendor recommendations. After years (maybe 25??) of her family owning and managing the place, she knew the place inside and out, and was always eager to offer advice to ensure the wedding weekend went perfectly to create the best weekend of their lives for the wedding couple. During the weekend that we were there, Ryan, her brother, and Mary and Doyle, their parents, together with the Holly Farm family of Gus, Rosa, Gus Jr, Sylvestre, and all, were all onsite to help. Can I commend Ryan's wonderful eye for detail and his photography skills?! Doyle and Mary were headed off on a long vacation to Italy, but still came by to check in on us and help out until the time they were to leave for the airport. How sweet was that?! Did I mention the gorgeous venue? The property itself was perfect. Beautiful trees, flowers, plants. A number of different spaces to host different venues. Guests would come and stay for the entire weekend in the 2 houses that could accommodate more than 20 people. Daily housekeeping. Fresh baked cookies by Mary. A decadent weekend of doing a lot - or nothing at all, could be spent by the couple and their friends and families. Very little restriction on what you can/cannot do. Really a paradise for all. Look at the pictures you find online, see the wide smiles on the faces of anybody there, and you will know that this place truly was paradise, if only for a weekend. Please visit, and see how this special venue will make your special event all the more perfect.

    Holly Farm is one of my favorite places. It's so totally unique and the various elements of the space allow for so much creativity with photography, guests and their entertainment and usage of space and just being in a comfortable environment. Every plant, every chair and bench and stepping stone is just perfectly placed in a natural way. The family are just a delight too and are so on EVERY detail of everything. The passion they have for their business is astounding.
