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: $8,000
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!)

    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!

    Reception Venue

    Walker's Overlook is the perfect site for your wedding reception! The venue is yours for the entire day! The large bridal suite is spacious enough for all your bridesmaids to get ready at the morning of the wedding! There is even a game room space for the groom and groomsmen to hang out in before the wedding. The staff is very friendly. Lori was my coordinator and did a fantastic job working with me to make sure all the details were in place and that I had nothing to worry about! The views are beautiful! Book now!

    First venue we looked at, nothing else compared!

    This was the first venue we saw and nothing else compared. Mark showed us around the property and we loved the idea of bringing in all your own vendors. It is amazing that you have access to the property for the ENTIRE day, you get to use the house and the tent. It makes the day just flow so easily.

    Shannon was amazing to work with. We have been in contact with her for 1.5 years during our entire planning process. She answered every question, helped with every vendor and executed the day perfectly. We never had to worry. Use the preferred vendors, especially Celebrations Catering. They work at this venue ALL the time and know exactly what to do to make your day perfect. They have a way of making you feel like you are the only bride and groom they have every had - I am so thankful for that!

    We are forever grateful we found this hidden gem and would recommend it to all of our friends. We had SO many compliments on how beautiful, big and perfect our venue was! Thank you for everything :)

    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.
