About Walker's Overlook

Nestled in Walkersville, Maryland, Walker’s Overlook is a picturesque farm and wedding venue. It is conveniently located near Frederick, Maryland as well as being close to Washington DC and Baltimore. A site brimming with centuries of history and possessing antique architecture, weddings have been hosted here since 2012. Between the expansive and idyllic grounds and the pastoral structures, couples can celebrate their milestone moment in style.

Facilities and Capacity

A jewel on the farm at Walker’s Overlook is the centuries-old home that was constructed in 1757. It has a classic brick facade and quaint shutters. There are two dressing rooms in the farmhouse. One of these spaces functions as a game room, providing entertainment for the wedding entourage as well as a chance to mingle. Outside, many couples choose to exchange vows under the branches of the walnut tree located behind the home. Cocktail hour can be held on the patio, offering a designated space for each of the proceedings on your special day. For the reception, the venue boasts a tent that includes a spacious dance floor. Up to 275 individuals can be accommodated in this structure. The wood flooring inside the tent creates a rustic and chic ambience while the neutral tones provide a template suiting a variety of wedding styles.

Services Offered

Walker’s Overlook employs a wedding coordinator who works with you from the initial booking to your actual celebrations. Their job is to ensure that your use of the venue goes according to plan, alleviating some of your wedding-day stress. When you book the farm, you have access to the site for 12 hours which includes the use of the historic home. Tables and chairs are also provided to help you get the site ready for guests. To help you orchestrate your special day, the team at the farm has a list of vendors they can connect you with. That being said, the team also allows you to bring in other businesses, giving couples the ability to craft a wedding that fits them best.

    Meet and hired!

    Mark gave us a detailed tour of both venues he owns, but Walker’s stole my heart! The property is designed perfectly to have effortless flow from the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Everything that was included made the price worth every penny. I feel very supported and taken care by this team!

    The most perfect wedding spot

    We just got married at Walker's Overlook on 10.12.19 and it was MORE than we could have hoped for! The farmhouse and the surrounding open fields are absolute perfection and the tented reception space was perfect for our nearly 185 guests to have plenty of room for dinner and dancing while still getting to enjoy a view of the surrounding openness. We fell in love with the entire property the moment we toured it with Mark and ended up booking it later that day! Mark really took the time to completely show us the property and go over everything in detail and was clearly very proud of this beautiful venue (which was often lacking from other venues we had toured). They also provide you with a day-of wedding coordinator which was SUCH a blessing! Kimberly was our coordinator and mapped out an entire wedding day timeline and touched base with all of my vendors ahead of time to make sure everyone knew when and where they needed to be on the wedding day so the day was as organized as possible. I would have never been able to do this myself. She was there with us during the wedding rehearsal the night before to direct everything, she handled most of the set-up on the day of, and was keeping everyone on schedule before the ceremony & during the reception. If you think you don't need a wedding coordinator....trust me you do! And we were so grateful for everything Kimberly did for us to keep the day running smoothly! If there were any problems during the day, I wasn't aware of them. Everyone we worked with at Walker's Overlook was incredible and we are so grateful to everyone for making our day so perfect!

    A Perfect Choice

    Walker's Overlook is a perfect destination for anyone looking for the ideal beautiful, rustic, outdoor wedding. The giant willow tree makes for a picture-perfect ceremony, and the staff working their does just as much to make sure everything goes smoothly. Holly was our day-of coordinator and she was unbelievably helpful. From coordinating with other vendors to arranging our timeline to herding people the day of, we couldn't imagine that day without her. She was accommodating, insightful, and organized. We're so happy with how our big day turned out and highly recommend Walker's Overlook.

    Great Venue!

  • Brielle Davis Events Wedding Planners

    I worked as a day-of-coordinated here in June 2013. In addition to loving the beautiful grounds, I was so grateful for the hands-on support of the venue manager and their day-of staff. Not all venues have staff who are willing to go the extra mile to make sure the bride and her family have the day they dreamed of. I was blessed to have their help and will definitely direct future clients and friends here.
