About Walker's Overlook

Walker's Overlook is a stunning wedding venue that is also a working crop farm. It is located right outside of Frederick, Maryland and is a short drive from the Baltimore, Washington and Virginia area.

Beautiful trees line the main drive leading up to the venue were you will see the 1757 colonial house on the property. This house holds a large bridal suite upstairs and a game room/man cave in the basement. Both rooms are yours the day of your wedding and can be used for 12 hours that day! Behind the colonial is a walnut tree, making the perfect backdrop for your wedding ceremony. Walker's Overlook offers a tent structure with wood flooring for your reception with restrooms directly behind. This tent holds 275 guests with plenty of room for dancing!

For your vendors, we have outstanding ones that we can recommend. However, you are more than welcome to bring a vendor(s) of your choice to help bring your special day to life.

Last but certainly not least, we will provide you with a highly experienced wedding coordinator to work with you from the time you book with us all the way through to your wedding day! They are sure to help make your wedding day run as smooth as possible!

Our daily pricing is listed below:

Friday: $7,000
Saturday: $8,500
Sunday: $6,000
Monday-Thursday: $5,000

(These prices include tables, chairs, access to the venue for 12 hours on your wedding day, the colonial house on the property and most importantly, your wedding coordinator!)

    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.

    Charming venue with a delightful staff. Love working here.

  • Catering by Seasons Wedding Caterers

    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.
