Holly Hedge was the first and only venue my husband and I toured. We had a friend of a friend who attended a wedding there and said we had to check it out, and we were so glad we did! The venue was absolutely perfect, and we had the most gorgeous fall day. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained, and the attention you get from the staff is the most genuine you will find. It truly felt like the Holly Hedge staff was a part of our wedding party with all of the help they did. We entrusted the staff to set up our wedding and paid the setup fee, and although there were a few little mishaps (the initials on the cake were wrong and a few things were not set up as asked), it was the staff going above and beyond throughout the night that made those things not even matter. Key acted as a second maid of honor throughout the whole day. She was there constantly checking in on us to make sure we had everything we needed, greeted and assisted our vendors with setup, and even helped calm me down and fix my dress when my husband stepped on it and ripped out the bustle during cocktail hour. She truly made us feel as though she loves what she does and had more patience than anyone I have ever met. We are so happy to have had her on board during our wedding.Sent on 01/02/2015
Our guests have been raving for weeks about what a great time they had at Holly Hedge and how they wished they had such a gorgeous and unique venue. The only small issue was that we have been told by a few guests that someone on the wait staff told them it was okay for them to take the centerpieces home with them. Some of the pieces we used were rented and some purchased with the intent to re-sell and we are therefore missing a few little things. Nothing major though. Just keep that in mind to let the staff know if it is or is not okay for guests to take things home.
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Thank you so much for the thoughtful words, and the particular accolades to Key. We are lucky to have her, and so glad that you all worked so well together. We wanted to offer our apologies for any of the mix-ups throughout the day, and thank you for being so understanding of any minor mishaps. We also take your last point to heart, and we are working on ways to ensure that this doesn't happen again. Thank you all for letting us be a part of your celebration, and for making it such a joy to work with you all.

We would highly recommend HollyHedge to anyone looking to celebrate their special day in the New Hope area. It's such a quaint and beautiful location and an excellent venue. Key and Liz worked with us on every detail the weekend of to made sure our wedding went off without a hitch. Key guided us through the whole process and patiently made sure we were happy with all of the choices for our event--right down to the color of the cocktail linens. All of the HollyHedge staff were kind and accommodating. The food was great, nice sized portions and plated beautifully. They also did an incredible job on the wedding cake, it looked stunning and tasted even better! We were so pleased with the entire experience and are still getting compliments from our guests. You won't be disappointed.Sent on 01/05/2015

My husband and I got married at Holly Hedge in July and it was the most perfect day. In the months leading up to our wedding, the staff was incredibly responsive and helpful. When I started to go into a tailspin about the color of my table linens (ridiculous, I know), Michele calmed me down and helped me work through all the details. Everything we asked for -- they did. They didn't even give it a second thought!Sent on 11/28/2014
On the day of, they took care of absolutely everything. It looked exactly how I imagined. All the guests raved about the grounds, staff, and food (which was delicious). Honestly, I could go on for days about how perfect our wedding was. If I had to do it all over again, I would pick Holly Hedge every single time.
Thanks again for making our day so special!
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Abby, we're so excited to read your review. We are over the moon that you and Patrick loved everything about the wedding, and that all your hard work and planning paid off. It was your thoughtful attention to the little things like the cupcakes and cookies that really made the wedding uniquely your own. We're just glad that we were able to give you the space to celebrate with your friends and family. We hope that you all will come back and visit us soon.

We got married on June 21st, 2014 at Holly Hedge and could not have anticipated or asked for a more perfect experience from beginning to end. Michele, Key, Liz, and the rest of the staff were so accommodating and took pains to answer our early questions, plan our wedding, and think of the little things that are so easy to overlook during the course of wedding planning. They are a staff that were organized, efficient, and courteous throughout our many interactions. They are a rare combination of professional yet completely down-to-earth, which was comforting and greatly appreciated. On our wedding day, the staff was attentive to our every need and their experience really shone through in making the event run flawlessly. The food was as-advertised: delicious. Serving steak at a wedding is always hit-or-miss depending on the chef, but this stands out in particular because we felt is was exceptional. Our guests enjoyed the unique feel of the inn and brunch the next day provided a final chance to celebrate with our family and guests.Sent on 09/01/2014
The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly maintained. We have received many, many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the venue was, and in particular how unique and memorable the cocktail hour was (we did our speeches from the balcony of the old barn, which we would definitely recommend). There are multiple places throughout Holly Hedge that allow for amazing pictures and we took full advantage. We also opted for the after party in the cocktail hour space. We continued the open bar for our guests, ordered pizza from down the road, and kept the party going for another two hours - a perfect ending.
Getting married and picking a venue is an inherently stressful event, but Holly Hedge instilled confidence in our decision from the moment we selected it, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Our wedding ultimately exceeded our high expectations and we have Holly Hedge and its wonderful staff to thank.
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts with everyone. We absolutely appreciate the very high praise. I know that our executive chef and the rest of his team in the kitchen will be thrilled to hear that everyone was happy with the food, particularly the steak. We are always thrilled to hear that the bride and groom were able to celebrate and enjoy their wedding without any worries. We're so happy that our team could provide that for you both. We hope that this isn't the last that we hear from you all, and we are able to help with other celebrations and family milestones in the years to come. Thank you for letting HollyHedge help make the wedding fantastic.

Holly Hedge was all around wonderful! They seemed kind and genuine from the start and really seemed to care about what we wanted and about us a couple. They were scheduled and made the process easy for us with quick responses, reminders, and anticipating questions and obstacles we would have. They were very flexible with scheduling, decorating, storing items there, and making changes up to the last minute. They made the day of the wedding so smooth! I couldn't ask for better set-up, personal help, and service for my guests. The food was fantastic and the inn was perfect for the guests to stay at. Even breakfast, clean-up, and check-out was smooth! Wendy, Key, Liz, and Michele are an amazing team! Their intern Melissa was by my side all day and just made the day perfect!Sent on 09/24/2014
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with others. We are elated that our team was able to offer all the personal help that you needed to make the wedding day run smoothly. We strive to make sure every event is perfect, and that all the guests have a great time. But, some folks make it a real treat to do our jobs. Thank you for letting us be a small part of your big day.

From the moment I stepped out of the car to see the venue I knew this was where I wanted to get married. The grounds are incredible. I can't believe I drove by so many times and didn't know this gem was hiding there!Sent on 09/03/2014
The planning was so low-stress and an absolute dream. I'm a naturally organized person, and even I was impressed with how on top of things Wendy, Key, Michele and Liz were. The day of staff was absolutely incredible. I'm a little clumsy and I got an appetizer on the side of my dress between the ceremony and reception and before I could blink someone was dabbing it with club soda and it was just gone. Simply amazing.
My ceremony was perfect and the transition (as told by friends and family) happened in the blink of an eye. The food was fantastic and they even had some extra appetizers waiting for us in our room at the end of the night! The entire day was so well run and the food was fantastic. Someone was always asking if my husband or I needed anything.
I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. Having it all on-site (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) made it so older family members (who they were SO accommodating of) were comfortable and could partake in the whole day without having to be transported place to place. At one point my mom's knees were hurting and one of the staff literally held her arm and walked her through the receiving line. I can't reiterate enough the incredible staff!
An added bonus was being able to see people who stayed at the inn the next morning for breakfast (which was also so delicious).
I had such an absolutely amazing wedding day. Thank you so much!
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Hi Carey,
Jackie · Married on 05/17/2014
I cannot say enough about how beautiful this venue is and what an amazing staff they have. I fell in love with HollyHedge even before I even saw it in person. And then when my husband and I had our appointment to visit, we discovered it was even more breathtaking than the pictures. It ended up being the only venue we looked at. Aside from it being gorgeous, another plus it that it only holds one wedding a day so you will never cross paths with another bride on your big day, which may happen at some other large venues. I spent over a year planning our wedding and both Wendy and Liz were there to quickly respond to every little question I had. On our wedding day, everything was perfect. The guests ranted and raved about the food! Liz and Key made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be at any given time and were so helpful with all requests. For any bride considering this venue, you will not be disappointed.Sent on 08/21/2014
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Jackie, thank you so much for letting HollyHedge be a part of your celebration. We loved how your family personalized the event - especially the surprise entertainment for you and Harold. What a cool idea, and we're so pleased we were able to keep the surprise secret for the wedding day. We appreciate all the wonderful feedback and for sharing your thoughts with other potential brides and grooms. Congratulations again, and we can't wait to see what surprise is in store for the first anniversary...Hopefully we can be a part of that too.
Katie · Married on 04/25/2014
My husband and I cannot say enough about HollyHedge Estate. Anyone who has been there can vouch for the fact that it is a special place, but being on the bride/groom side of things offered a unique and special perspective. From the first day we sat down with Wendy, we felt welcomed, comfortable and valued. One of the biggest differences between our experience at HollyHedge versus the other venues we visited, was that they truly listened to us and worked with our restrictions/needs. Wendy, Liz, Michele and Key were extremely helpful in our planning process, answering questions promptly and keeping the lines of communication open. On the day of the wedding, I didn’t worry about a single thing related to planning, as I knew everything was in good hands. Key and Michele were extremely kind, down-to-earth, and generous the day of the wedding, creating special plates of hors d’oeuvres for me and my husband, and making sure we always had everything we needed. The bartenders and servers were excellent (I have been a bartender for years and really appreciate this), the portions were generous, and the cake was stunning! Over the last few weeks our wedding guests have been raving about the setting, the food, the service and the overall ambiance of our day, and I couldn’t be more happy that we settled on HollyHedge. In addition, we had our wedding on a Friday, and my family, my bridesmaids and I spent the night before the wedding at the B&B. The rooms were wonderful and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! It honestly felt like it was our home for the weekend! From start to finish, the weekend was perfect, and I owe a huge thank you to every staff member at HollyHedge. I wish I could better put into words just how excellent the entire experience was. I truly encourage every bride to check it out—it’s a perfect wedding venue!Sent on 05/13/2014
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Katie, thank you so much for the wonderful feedback. We're all so happy that you had a magical time. Our whole team was lucky to be part of such a special day and help celebrate with such a great group. We can't wait for you to come back for your anniversaries to let us know how you all are doing.

Holly Hedge was amazing! There isn't one single bad thing I can say about it. We had our ceremony & reception there and it was perfect! The grounds, the staff, the food...just everything was amazing. Our wedding day was more then we could've hoped & dreamed of. Our guests are still telling us how beautiful our wedding was & it was the most fun they ever had at a wedding. The event staff was more then helpful during the planning process and on the day of...any questions or concerns I had, I got an immediate response. They assured me our day would go smoothly & be perfect and it was!! Ki (not sure if I spelled the right) was my go to girl the day of...I can not say enough good things about her...she was on top of everything and made sure my husband and I had everything we wanted and needed the entire night.

Hello Holly Hedge,Sent on 04/10/2014
My daughter's wedding was on Sunday, April 6, 2014. It was a beautiful day tucked in between several rainy, gloomy days. Everything for the rehearsal day, rehearsal dinner, wedding day and day after was perfect. The staff could not be more personal, friendly and approachable. Always ready to answer any question, and spend as much time as you needed. Everything and anything that you wanted from my family bringing homemade cookies for the reception to running over safety pins for a quick nip & tuck while the photographer was taking pictures was accommodated. The food, the service and especially the staff made the wedding day a complete success! Completely satisfied. Sincerely, MOB (Mother-of-the-Bride)
HollyHedge Estate's reply:Karen, thank you very much for taking the time to write such a kind review. We are so happy that every part of your daughter's wedding weekend went as you had hoped. We love the fact that weddings are a family affair, and that you all offered such great support to Laura and Ray throughout the weekend. Thanks for letting us be a part of a fantastic celebration.

My husband and I got married at HollyHedge Estate this past November. We were so lucky to have found HollyHedge. The estate couldn't be more beautiful and the staff is outstanding. All of the employees are truly wonderful people who love life, love their job, and love HollyHedge. Wendy, Liz, and Sara are amazing. They took care of everything for us and it was heaven on earth. The food is spectacular, so if you are a foodie this is where you want to get married. We had a make-your-own hot chocolate bar and everyone said it was the best hot chocolate they ever had. The hors d'oeuvres were spectacular. We highly recommend the ahi tuna with cucumber noodles and orange ginger sauce. Our wedding cake was beautiful and tasted amazing too. Our ceremony was held in the old stone barn and we had a roaring fire going in the fireplace for our chilly November wedding. We held our reception in the new barn and the huge, antique bar was a big hit with everyone. We also had a fire pit going outside with a cigar lounge (this was a big hit with the guys!). Everyone who attended our wedding said it was the best they ever went to and amazingly, this luxury wedding stayed within our budget. Wendy made sure we got the best of everything while paying close attention to our costs. We also loved our beautiful room at the inn, which also had its own fireplace! The staff even surprised us after the wedding with a path of rose petals to our room! :) My husband and I wanted a rustic, beautiful venue with great food and great people and this is definitely HollyHedge estate!Sent on 02/14/2014

Perfection. Holly Hedge exceeded all of our very high expectations. My daughter Alex and my new SIL Miles were married there Oct. 25. The premises are spectacular, the place spoke to our heart on our first visit. The food is wonderful, your guests will be blown away! But, the very best thing about Holly Hedge is the people. They make you feel like family, they are there for you always...attentive but not intrusive. Wendy, Sarah and Liz are VERY GOOD at what they do! Everyone else at HH is just terrific. Do yourselves a huge favor and book this venue...you won't regret it!Sent on 11/03/2013

The first time I walked onto HollyHedge's property, I knew that was where I wanted to get married and when I brought my fiance back, he felt the exact same way. It was everything we were looking for - from the romantic, outdoorsy feel to the rustic barn and reception hall. The fact that it included all the linens, the food, the alcohol, AND the cake made it that much more appealing to everyone. From the time we booked which was April 2012 until the wedding (October 2013), I emailed the coordinators what felt like a million times and always received prompt replies and friendly emails back from them. Wendy, Liz, and Sara are all amazing and were so wonderful to work with the whole way through!Sent on 10/23/2013
A menu tasting was set up by the venue in February 2013 where we got to sample what was going to be offered at the cocktail hour and at dinner. This was when we found out how delicious all of the food was! Seriously, some of the best food I ever tasted. The coordinators worked with my husband and I to create the best menu ever for our wedding day - lots of fall foods like a mashed potato bar, pumpkin soup and a pumpkin wedding cake (that was to die for!)
Wedding day! Oh my gosh our wedding day was straight out of a fairytale. Everything about our day was absolutely perfect. The first time I went and looked at the courtyard, not even completely done yet, I got tears in my eyes at how beautiful everything looked all put together. The reception hall looked even more gorgeous. The coordinators made sure we ate and had something to drink at all times and made us feel super VIP. Our guests are still raving about the food and the venue! If you want to have a fairytale dream wedding come to life, I highly recommend getting married at HH. We went a little over our budget, but it was worth every single penny for our dream wedding to come true. I cannot stress enough how fabulous the staff at HH and how my wedding day was so much better than I could have imagined!

Though Hollyhedge was over our budget, I went to visit to see "what you get for the money". Needless to say, I fell in love. The grounds are beautiful and maintained in a way to keep a "natural" look, consistent with the rustic charm the rest of the venue provides. The reception barn is decorated in a manner than is flexible with all wedding design themes (rustic vs traditional).Sent on 03/16/2014
The wedding coordinators are very prompt in replying to emails/calls. Wendy is a bit of a character, but does her job very well. We ended up being 15 guests shy of the minimum (150) for a Saturday, and Wendy helped find a way to help us recoup the cost difference. At our rehearsal , we filled Wendy's office will all of our decorations and favors (HH is "all inclusive", but I wanted specific things. We also used vendors not from their vendor list & they were awesome about that, no cake cutting fees or bottle fees from craft beer we brought). Not only did they set everything we brought up, but they also filled in any empty spaces we forgot with their own decor & it fit perfectly. We also used an apple tree as our unity ceremony and Sarah was amazing enough to get us cups of dirt I had forgotten to bring! Dirt! On our wedding day, everything ran so smoothly. Sarah was always available, made sure we had a drink in our hands, and actually stood next to us with a tray of hors d'ovres so we could snack while greeting guests during cocktail hour. The food is AMAZING (worth the price!) and the servers during the reception were courteous and efficient. We had a sparkler send off which the staff coordinated while hubby and I changed clothes in the bridal suite. All around wonderful day, and after all the stress of prepping, I felt so calm and comfortable day of because I knew we were in good hands & they proved me right!

Hollyhedge is AMAZING!!! We fell in love with it the first time we visited and we knew we had to book it. Wendy, Liz, and Sara were great to work with answering any questions we had by phone or email throughout the year as we prepared for the wedding day. They helped with specific details we requested in the couple weeks before the wedding and on the wedding day. Sara was our 'day of' coordinator and she was great. Everything went very smoothly and it was everything we imagined it would be and more. We can't say enough great things about HH and we would recommend the venue to anyone! In the couple months since our wedding, each of our guests has commented on how much fun they had, how great the food was, and what a beautiful venue we chose. If you are looking for something other than a banquet room or standard hotel venue, HH is the place to go. Our weather was gorgeous, but we loved the old stone barn so much that we still got married inside. We enjoyed the outdoor space for the cocktail hour and pictures. The grounds are beautiful and the food is SO much better than the typical banquet wedding food. If we had to do it all over again there is no doubt we would book HH immediately!

Holly Hedge Estate made our wedding a dream come true. The beauty of the venue along with the great reviews sold us immediately when we visited. Wendy, Liz and Sarah were extremely accommodating in terms of requests and ideas we had. The waitstaff, bartenders and coordinators the day of we're incredible, making sure our guests were happy and my new husband and I were we'll attended to. The food was worth every dollar we spent. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better venue, and our guests are still thanking us and talking about this being the best wedding they've attended. The onsite accommodations were lovely and the innkeeper and staff provided a level of service and comfort beyond what was expected.

My soon-to-be husband had one job after proposing to me- to find a wedding venue that was nicer than the one he had married his ex at ;) This was a tough task, because he had been previously married at a charming little inn. Well, he exceeded my expectations when he found HollyHedge Estate. The moment we saw the venue and met with Wendy, we KNEW that's where we were getting married... in fact, we made a deposit right then and there. It was the right decision, because our wedding reception was absolutely beautiful! The food was to-die-for, no attention to detail went unnoticed and the staff was extremely professional and attentive to our needs. There are not enough words to express how 'perfect" our day was simply due to the level of commitment HollyHedge has to it guests. We have now been married for almost 4 months and our friend and family STILL talk about how our reception was the nicest they have ever experienced. We can not thank everyone at HollyHedge enough for helping to make our special day one to forever cherish.Sent on 11/27/2013

We can't say enough good things about Holly Hedge Estate! It was a fantastic choice for a wedding venue and everyone was so accommodating and easy to work with. Beyond the stunning grounds and facilities, we were able to completely customize the day and add personal touches that were very personal to us, from bringing Rita's water ice (spiked!) for the cocktail hour to setting up a fire pit (provided by Holly Hedge) for s'mores for an on site after party. Holly Hedge was on board with what we wanted and would respond to emails very quickly. This was so key and helpful throughout the planning process. The food was delicious, including the cake which was beautiful (we went with chocolate chip cake with hazelnut and white chocolate filling). The day of the wedding was so smooth and there was even someone designated to help me with my dress, make sure we got to try the food at the cocktail hour (by bringing a tray with treats while we took pictures nearby) and ensure we had everything we needed. When overnight guests got hungry at the after party, they even helped call around to find late night pizza delivery place. The only downside for having your wedding at Holly Hedge is that, assuming there is an event on site the day before your wedding (likely if your wedding is in the summer or fall) guests can only stay on the property the night of the event - i.e., not the night before or after. This means we had to arrange separate accommodations for out of town guests for the remainder of our wedding weekend, and some out of town guests had to switch hotels for our wedding on Saturday night if they wanted to stay on the grounds. While Holly Hedge produces many weddings each weekend, they really go out of their way to make yours feel special. Overall, Holly Hedge was a truly wonderful place for our special day, and we could not recommend them highly enough!Sent on 08/15/2013

If you are looking for a rustic fairytale wedding, HollyHedge is the right place. It really is magical there! You feel like you are in a dream! HollyHedge has absolutely beautiful landscaping and unbelievable nooks to get pictures taken. There are so many great pictures I dont know how to choose! Wendy Hendricks and Sara Beck made our experience absolutely unforgettable. They were very accomodating to us and moved our ceremony from inside, to outside to inside again due to changes in weather conditions. And they did it in 6 mins! Unbelievable...The service was great, all guest had drinks in hands at all times. The food came out in a timely manner and was delish. They grow their own herbs and veggies so everything was extremely fresh. During the reception, every person was dancing and it got a bit warm. They brought in industrial fans to cool the room down. It seriously was the best time of our lives. HollyHedge is the place to get married. Look no further! Here is a video clip to see the beautiful background. Check it out!
