I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day. Ashley made the day so smooth and stress free. They have multiple options for food and drink, which made the planning process very easy. My wedding day was exactly how I pictured it, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

"Beautiful Venue"

Wonderful experience. The staff was very professional and it was the most beautiful wedding. Plenty of places to take beautiful pictures! Our day of coordinator MaryKathryn was amazing. I was the most stressed out bride but she made everything go so smoothly despite the craziness of the day. Would recommend this place to anyone!

"Great Place & Great People"

Beautiful location and wonderful service! Jessica was super helpful with answering all of my questions during the process. MaryKathryn was our day of coordinator and she made sure everything went as planned. When covid started Holly Hills was understanding and flexible with both postponements. Great place and great people!

"The perfect venue for a perfect day."

Our wedding was perfect, and we had the dream team of vendors, spearheaded by MaryKathryn and her team at Holly Hills. My husband and I met at Holly Hills and knew we wanted to get married there right away. Not only does it hold sentimental value for us, but it was the most beautiful and most affordable venue we toured with amazing staff! Everyone was so friendly and professional and went beyond our expectations. The few hiccups that we had during the day (let’s be real, is it a wedding without hiccups?) were handled so swiftly by MaryKathryn, I had practically nothing to worry about. The ceremony site is so beautiful and overlooks the golf course for a picture perfect ceremony. The food was also amazing! The service all day and night was impeccable. Holly Hills made our day magical and perfect in every way and I strongly recommend you check them out!

"Couldn't Have Dreamed of A Better Venue"

I couldn't recommend Holly Hills as a wedding venue to enough people! From the very start everyone was extremely accommodating and understanding of the stress that coincides with planning a wedding! We loved how every idea my husband and I had, they found a way to incorporate. Our primary contact during the planning process accepted another job a couple of months before our wedding and what could've been an extra stressor was actually quite the opposite. Holly Hills made sure we had the smoothest transition and that all of our previous meetings/contacts had been relayed to our next point of contact- MaryKathryn (who I cannot thank enough for keeping my family/bridal party on top of these on wedding day because I'm sure my crowd can be a handful). She made sure we had a backup plan for every scenario and that as a bride I had nothing to worry about on actual wedding day-from set-up to clean up. You will not regret choosing this venue for your special day!

"Everyone was easy to work with and exceeded expectations!"

(Wedding Wire Review)

Flexible and hardworking staff and incredible views!

I highly recommend Holly Hills for a wedding reception!! My wedding was supposed to be in August of 2020, but my husband and I had decided to postpone the wedding until July of 2021. Everyone we worked with was very flexible and kind with rescheduling our wedding. We ended up having the wedding outside on the hilltop by the restaurant with a tent and the view was simply spectacular with a gorgeous sunset. Planning the wedding was a breeze as both Jessica and Rachel were very patient and receptive of our questions and concerns. Anything we asked of them they did everything they could to make it happen and make the day special for us. On the day of the wedding, they helped so much with setting things up and putting things away at the end of the night. They were also very helpful throughout the day and checked in with my husband and I to make sure everything was perfect. They definitely made the wedding run smoothly and handled everything on their own. I am so grateful for the great staff members who made the day go well and the coordinators who put everything into making the day perfect. Everyone was easy to work with and exceeded expectations!

"I couldn’t have asked for a better experience..."

(Wedding Wire Review)

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, Holly Hills ensured everything was done perfectly and helped us every step of the way! They were very responsive throughout the whole process and accommodated us in every way! The venue is stunning and perfect for pictures!!! The wedding coordinator Rachel was super helpful as well as the event coordinator Jessica! Even the bar tender I handed my check to was helpful! Planning a wedding during covid was stressful and they made it as smooth as possible. We had about 50 guest planned for 70, however they can most definitely accommodate more with the spacing they have.

"We couldn’t have asked for a better day!"

(Wedding Wire Review)

Holly hills was absolutely amazing! From the moment we went to look at this venue we knew we wanted to get married there. Not only we’re the views amazing but the staff was great! The venue was the perfect size for the amount of people we wanted without you feeling crowded and uncomfortable. Our ceremony was outside on the hilltop facing the golf course and it was beautiful! This venue was also great at keeping us up to date with all of the COVID restrictions. Jessica and Rachel responded very quickly with any email that was sent and they did everything they could to accommodate us to make the day perfect! Rachel was also very helpful the day of our wedding by delegating all the tasks that needed to get done! We couldn’t have asked for a better day!

"My now-husband and I loved working with Holly Hills."

(Wedding Wire Review)

My now-husband and I loved working with Holly Hills. They provided a day-of coordinator that got back to us within 3 days on any email, and she was well-organized and versed in wedding day activities. Their food was delicious, and they kept the night on track. There were also no shortage of wonderful places for photos. We loved having our reception at Holly Hills!

"The food was incredible."

(Wedding Wire Review)

When we first toured Holly Hills, I knew it was our reception venue.

Jessica was amazing during the booking and scheduling process. When COVID struck and we had to move things around, she was incredibly responsive and understanding while we figured things out. When we met Rachel, my worries were assuaged even more. She helped us navigate every detail from the menu to the decor to the early morning getting ready in their upstairs bridal suite.

The food was incredible. I HIGHLY recommend the mini baked Brie appetizer and anything they cook in garlic butter. Our guests told us they felt like they were dining in a nice restaurant, not just eating wedding food. The bartender became everyone's friend and helped people enjoy themselves safely. The signature cocktail (a spiked coffee) was a hit! The servers were attentive and professional, which was greatly appreciated since most of the evening was spent at tables for social distancing.

As a bride, what I appreciated most was how they brought my vision for the decor to life. We were running late, but it seemed like they turned the ballroom into my wooded wonderland dream in the blink of an eye. All of our vendors worked so well together to make the day happen, and Holly Hills was a crucial part of that team.

Holly Hills helped make our wedding the perfect, safe, fun, memorable day.

"Highly recommend! So in love with this venue!"

(Wedding Wire Review)

Having our wedding at Holly Hills County Club was one of the best decisions we ever made!  Everything was just perfect!!!  The two main individuals we worked with during the planning and day of (Jessica and Rachel) were the most organized, caring, and responsive ever! The food was amazing, our guests really enjoyed everything from appetizers to the main course. From the beginning to end they handled everything so perfectly, that if there was a flaw we did not even notice. We cannot say enough good things about this place. The ballroom is beautiful, the outdoor ceremony space and view is gorgeous! We are so placed with staff for the efforts and collaboration to make this dream come true even with all this COVID situation going on. Muchas gracias!

"When we visited, we knew this venue was “the one” for us..."

(Wedding Wire Review)

We found Holly Hills Country Club on Wedding Wire after looking at numerous other venues. Contacting the venue was easy and they responded quickly and we were able to do a site tour within a couple of weeks. We were looking for a venue to have our 120-140 guests, ceremony AND reception. When we visited, we knew this venue was “the one” for us. . . not too big or to small, with the perfect amount of “class” (without being too ornate or seemingly pretentious). Our original date was March 28, 2020 and we were all set for our outdoor ceremony and indoor reception at HH. But,19 days before, our governor put a stay-at-home order in place. . . Needless to say, we were crushed! Holly hills was great with communication and got us rescheduled quickly. There were covid restrictions, of course, but overall HH was very accommodating. (Masks indoors, 1/2 the number of original guests, etc.) Our ceremony and reception happened on August 15! Guests all had a good time, enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the venue. Also, the grounds and scenery are beautiful! We were running behind schedule and had to skip over our first look photos at their covered bridge. Talked to Rachel and she said we could come back with our photographer to do them! We HIGHLY recommend Holly Hills Country Club!

So Beautiful

We loved Holly Hills from day one! The venue was gorgeous and made our wedding day everything we wanted and more. Jessica helped us plan/prepare everything. We couldn't have done it without her. She was so sweet and beyond helpful! She was very responsive to all my emails and patient with my hundreds of questions. The food was excellent as well. All of our guests raved about the filet mignon. Thank you Holly Hills for helping us have the perfect Christmas wedding!

Everyone there was so easy to work with and were always willing to be flexible to fit our needs. They truly take care of just about everything and it really helped me relax and enjoy our entire day. We also had our rehearsal dinner there as well which was also amazing! Can't recommend them enough.

The staff at this venue was very helpful. Jessica answered any & all questions that I had up until & through my wedding day. If I could do my wedding day over & over again, I would still choose Holly Hills as my venue! The food was great. Kudos to the chef! My guests had nothing but nice words about the entrees & hors d'oeuvres offered. The grounds looked amazing for our pictures as well in the middle of October! I wish the day did not have to end.

 Amazing to Work With

My husband and I absolutely loved getting married here! From start to finish we had an awesome experience. We coordinated everything with Jessica and she was such a breeze to work with. She responded quickly and made the process stress free. It was raining on our wedding day and they were so flexible and made sure our day would still be perfect. Luckily the rain calmed down and we were able to have our ceremony outside. The scenery is beautiful which is a big reason we chose this venue. The reception went flawlessly. It was honestly a perfect day and we are SO happy we chose this venue. Thank you to all of the staff for making our day so special.

Perfect Fall Wedding

This was a perfect place to have our reception. We loved that the dance floor was centrally located, allowing for optimum dancing time. Additionally, the bar and balcony areas provided a more quiet space, if anyone needed a little bit of space, or a break. Holly Hills was an incredible venue and made it easy on our wedding day, allowing us to relax through the whole process.

Perfect Venue for Our Perfect Day

We are so happy that we found and had our wedding at Holly Hills. The venue itself was everything that we ever wanted.

Really appreciate how hands on Holly Hills Staff was with the setup of our wedding decoration. The food was so delicious. All of our guests really enjoyed their entree selections and were extremely satisfied with their food choice....Jessica herself is a great resource. She is extremely patient, resourceful, responsive and really caters to the couples needs.

"...loved our experience with Holly Hills! "

(Wedding Wire Review)

We are so happy that we had our wedding at Holly Hills! The staff are professional and helped us each step along the way in planning (and answered every email and question!) Although we do not live local to Holly Hills, we never felt as if we were out of the loop. The staff helped our wedding day run smoothly, even when we had hiccups, and having Jessica as a wedding coordinator was such a huge help to us. We also had a tight budget and were able to get the best bang for our buck at Holly Hills. They remained flexible with us and fit our needs. The venue itself is gorgeous, but we were able to bring a lot of our own decorations as well. The staff allowed us to bring everything we needed for the wedding over the night before and they provided a place for the bridal party to get ready the day of. The staff worked well with vendors and gave our photographer a golf cart to use for our photos. We and our guests loved our experience with Holly Hills!

"Planned in 2 Weeks!"


(Wedding Wire Review)

Originally my husband and I had planned to do a courthouse ceremony, but I reached out to Kris at Holly Hills on a whim to see if there would be anyway we could do a small ceremony on the front balcony. He called me right away and without any hesitation said absolutely! That was 2 weeks before our planned date. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue for our small (25ppl) ceremony! Thank you to Mary Kathryn, Taylor and of course Kris for everything that you all did to make our day perfect!

(Wedding Wire Review)

There is absolutely nothing negative I can say about Holly Hills! My husband and I planned our wedding in 4 months and it would not have been possible without Jessica and the team at Holly Hills. From the first visit we felt like we were a part of the family. My husband and his buddies played golf the morning of while me and my ladies got ready at the club. The picture perfect views made for an amazing backdrop for photos of all kinds. I honestly couldn't have had my dream day without this place!

"They keep the bride and groom in mind."


(Wedding Wire Review)

Jessica was so amazing! All the staff were so kind and helpful. When looking for a venue, it felt like any other venue was trying to take advantage of the fact that the wedding day is once in a lifetime, that even cake cutting had an extra cost. Holly Hills truly made our day amazing, and never tried to very last penny they could. It was the perfect place. And the food was amazing!!!

I have nothing but kind words to say about Holly Hills. Being active duty Army, planning our wedding was very overwhelming at times considered I was deployed for most of the process. Jessica and Taylor were incredible and answered any questions/concerns I had in a very timely manner. The day of our wedding went smoother than I could even imagine! The staff was wonderful, food was delicious, and overall experience was incredible. I highly recommend Holly Hills, I wouldn't change a thing about our big day. The staff made sure everything was perfect and handled every detail from table set-up to calming my nerves! Incredible venue.

"...I highly recommend checking out Holly Hills Country club for your venue!"


(Wedding Wire Review)

Perfect wedding venue!

My (now) husband and I were looking to have a small, intimate, and more-affordable wedding, and that is exactly what we got at Holly Hills Country Club. We had our wedding on a Sunday in October, and our outdoor ceremony on the hill was beautiful. There are many different places around the golf course to take pictures.

Jessica was amazing throughout the planning process, and Taylor was with us on the wedding day to help the day run as smoothly as possible and assist us with anything we needed. Jessica provided us with a list of recommended vendors that helped make planning easy.

We looked at other venues, and I think we definitely got the best "bang for our buck" by choosing Holly Hills. If you are looking to get married in the Frederick MD area, I highly recommend checking out Holly Hills Country club for your venue!

Very courteous, professional and with great attention to detail.

We loved this venue. They provided everything we needed or wanted for our special day. (One of their staff even had to run to the store for a garter for the toss because it was forgotten.) They created a special menu for us as we wanted to have breakfast for dinner. The food was amazing. All of our guests were pleased and our reception was beautiful. Highly recommend.

(Wedding Wire Review)

Holly Hills was the perfect place to get married! The venue was just what I was looking for - handicap accessible, we had the whole venue for the day, options of indoor/outdoor spaces for ceremony and reception, and within budget. I can't say enough good things about Jessica and her staff. Everyone was very friendly and Jessica was amazing to work with. She answered all my questions and was always available for any last minute requests. The food was delicious on the wedding day. MaryKathryn (our coordinator that was provided) was a big help setting/cleaning up and directing traffic, so I didn't have to worry about it. There was plenty of photo opportunities including the covered bridge. Everything turned out beautifully and this would be a great location for future brides!

Holly Hills Country Clubs was amazing; both Jessica and Taylor were attentive and made the experience wonderful. Jessica was available for every step of the way and had answers to any problem I foresaw. On the day of the wedding, Taylor went above and beyond to make sure both myself and my husband were comfortable, happy, and taken care of. HHCC took care of all the set up for decorations and the cleanup which helped immensely. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Holly Hills was the perfect Place for our dream wedding! The venue itself was gorgeous, with an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception that led out to the patio. They were flexible with our event decorator and even accommodated us having a horse and carriage! They brought us down to super cute bridge for our first look. We had so many compliments from our guests about the venue and the food and drink being delicious! We could go on and on about how perfect our wedding was but we can't thank Holly Hills enough for providing us with the opportunity to have our fairytale wedding come to real life !

"Honestly, I would recommend this to anyone..."

(Wedding Wire Review)

Can I just say wow! Holly Hills truly made our wedding day so special! We knew the first time we visited Holly Hills- that's the place. I am so happy we decided on Holly Hills! Everyone from the general manager- Kris, to Jessica- director of special events, to Mary Katrhryn who was our wedding day coordinator was such a pleasure to work with and truly cared about our guests and us! The day of, everything ran so smoothly and we didn't have to think of one thing. Mary Kathryn even personally ran interference before our entrance into the reception, so we could have a minute to breathe after all our pictures! Mary Kathryn truly orchestrated our day beautifully. The food was absolutely amazing and cooked to perfection, the drinks were plentiful, and the room was so spacious even for 145 guests! The venue is absolutely gorgeous (even with cloudy/rainy weather) and we even got to go out onto the covered bridge for some photos! Honestly, I would recommend this to anyone- they have a little bit of everything to fit any idea, theme, or any guest accommodation.

" was perfect. They took care of every detail. "

(Wedding Wire Review)

They are just the best! Jessica, the director of special events is wonderful. They are professional, responsive and flexible. We planned to have an outdoors wedding ceremony but it rained so Mary Katrhryn, our day of coordinator (yes, you get a coordinator!) and the staff moved the ceremony indoors and it was perfect. They took care of every detail. The food was great. All the picky eaters inside our family loved it. Andrew our guest and I had an amazing time.

"The only thing we didn't like about the venue and experience is that it had to come to an end!"

(Wedding Wire Review)

Holly Hills was SUPER accommodating. They were willing to move up our wedding months in advance and even in a time crunch were able to make it the most special and stress free day of our lives. They took care of everything, all we had to do was give them a vision! The venue is beautiful and all of the staff are very pleasant/willing to help make your dreams come true. Mary Kathrine ran our wedding day, and everything was executed perfectly, she did a great job. The food was delicious, the drinks were awesome. The only thing we didn't like about the venue and experience is that it had to come to an end!

"...we were treated like royalty."

(Wedding Wire Review)

Holly Hills was the second stop on our venue search...and that's where we ended our search. Our first meeting was with Jessica to tour the facility and we were thrilled with everything they had to offer. Holly Hills took care of EVERYTHING! We were the only event for the whole day and we were treated like royalty. Mary Katherine was our “day of” coordinator and she made sure everything was perfect and exactly how I had imagined!! Taylor made sure we never ran out of drinks during pictures and all night long! We couldn't have asked for a better venue and day. The venue also had plenty of variety for photo opportunities too! Thank you so much Holly Hills!!

"If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further!!"

(Wedding Wire Review)

When we started shopping for wedding venues on a budget we never thought about Holly Hills. After months of looking and looking we decided to visit Holly Hills. Every member of their staff was a delight to work with. Their constant smiles and positive attitudes through the entire process (in case you were wondering weddings are hard work) were a blessing. Directing our every move letting us know what is next and where to be and what to do. Chasing after people that weren't where they needed to be, Taylor was outstanding!! Thank you so much!! The facility is gorgeous. The food amazing. The price was better than we could have hoped for. We had a better than perfect day. I couldn't even believe how well our wedding went. God bless you all that helped us. If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further!!

"We gave them our decorations and a few directions and they made everything even better than I imagined."

(Wedding Wire Review)

We got married at Holly Hills on 4/28/2018, we had both the ceremony and reception at HH. When we began the venues search/visit, Holly Hills was our top choice as the combination of beautiful and affordable place, fits right in our style and budget. We received so many compliments about how beautiful the place is. The sales director- Jessica was available to answer all of my questions/concerns prior to booking. Molly was our wedding coordinator. Molly was very responsive and helpful throughout the process. We had a traditional Vietnamese ceremony wedding, a little different from usual. Molly was very patient as I changed my mind often during rehearsal. All of the staff was kind, professional and very on top of things. On the day of our wedding, they did a wonderful job set up the ceremony and reception. We gave them our decorations and a few directions and they made everything even better than I imagined. They provided golf carts for us and photographer to go around the property to take pictures. They even provided champagne to me and my bridesmaids as we were getting ready. P/S: Though, we were too busy and didn't get to eat much on our wedding day, but got to taste the food at the tasting and they were awesome! We didn't think that they would give us full entree of each food choice; and had lunch a few hours prior so we were still too full to eat. Molly let us to take home the food so we can try them slowly. A special thanks to Molly, Taylor, and all the staff at Holly Hills to help us making my wedding day perfect! I would highly recommend Holly Hills to future brides.

We highly recommend Holly Hills.

We got married on 1/27/18 and had our reception at Holly Hills Country Club. It was wonderful! When we were looking for venues, Holly Hills was one of our top choices. As we were contemplating our decision, Jessica was available by phone and email and answered all of our questions. Everyone that we worked with was very helpful. During one of our many visits, the General Manager greeted us and spent a good amount of time talking to us and making conversation. We received so many compliments regarding how delicious the food tasted. All of the staff were kind and responsive. They even provided golf carts for us and the photographer on the day of making it easier to take pictures around the property. My wife and I still talk about how perfect and special our wedding day was. Thank you to Jessica, Mary, Molly, and all the staff at Holly Hills!

"I have already recommended Holly Hills to other brides!"

(Wedding Wire Review)

My husband and I got married on 12/29/17 at Holly Hills. When I began searching for a wedding venue I had given up then randomly came across Holly Hills. When I began doing some research they were the most affordable and right in our price range. When we set up our appointment and came to visit we fell in love. From the time that we booked Holly Hills to the very moment our wedding ended Holly Hills helped us with every detail. On 12/29 it was a very cold and blustery day. The General Manager came into greet us, helped us with pictures including having hot water with lemon to keep us from getting frozen. I have already recommended Holly Hills to other brides! A special thank you to Mary-Katherine for all of her hard work and setting everything up just like I had imagined!

"They only book one wedding per day which means no time limits on the day!"

(Wedding Wire Review)

We got married here on 10/21/17 and it was absolutely perfect. When we were searching for venues Holly Hills was one of our first stops. After visiting all the other locations we were considering Holly Hills clearly stood above the rest. It has a beautiful location, and the flexibility they offer topped every other venue we were considering. They only book one wedding per day which means no time limits on the day! Many of the other venues we looked at had time limits because they booked multiple weddings a day - knowing we were the only ones using the space that day was huge for us! The food was excellent - every one of our guests complimented it for weeks afterward. The options at the open bar were excellent, and the bartenders were professional and made great drinks! They also provided golf carts for my wife and I and the photographers on the day of, so that we could take pictures around the property without having to walk the entire golf course! I think the best thing about Holly Hills was how flexible they were. They really let us make it our day, and we really appreciated it and loved our day! My wife and I have said many times that we wouldn't change a thing about the wedding, and it was well worth the money.

"...everyone loved the food."

(Wedding Wire Review)

It was great being able to have the ceremony and reception in the same location and not have to worry about setup before and take down after. The firepit was awesome even though it was a warm night, the guests loved it. The lounge area was perfect for the cocktail hour. The venue itself was very beautiful and everyone loved the food. There was something for everyone. The bar even played the Caps game later in the reception for some of the guests.

"I will recommend them 1,000 times over to brides..."

(Wedding Wire Review)

We got engaged in December of 2015 and embarked on a venue hunt around Frederick. When we arrived at Holly Hills, we worked with Jessica, who was very friendly, showed us around the venue and explained everything very well. We loved the view, layout of the venue and the options we would have for our event. She was very responsive in any additional questions and helped us secure a fall 2016 date. We attended their spring bridal event, loved the food and found the staff to be warm as we made several visits during the planning process. During this period, we worked with a coordinator who was pleasant and cooperative, but lacked the responsiveness we had found earlier, sometimes going weeks at a time between replies. It was frustrating, but by being organized on my end, we pressed on. Two weeks before the wedding, Jessica called to tell us that Mary Kathryn, a longtime employee, would be our new coordinator. We were able to set up a meeting with everyone, review the information and go over what we were envisioning. I left feeling very confident that our wedding was going to be great. In that meeting, Mary Kathryn tied up all of the loose ends and even gave us her cell phone number. She was incredibly helpful in letting us set up our cookie table the day before - which was a huge help to us. On the day of, they both greeted us and throughout the evening, they made sure we had our food, drinks, our bridal party was taken care of, everything. They worked seamlessly with the staff to make sure our guests were happy and our event was a success - which it was! Between the food, venue, staff and service, we were beyond pleased with our decision to pick Holly Hills. The room was a good fit for our guests, a band and three cookie tables. We heard a lot of raves about the food - crab mango spoons! and the bar staff. I will recommend them 1,000 times over to brides - there is not a better value and setting for your wedding! Thank you Jessica, Mary Kathryn & Kris!

"...cannot say thank you enough for all you help and support during..."

Hi Abbey & Jessica,
I wanted to email you and Jessica to thank you for all your help planning our wedding and rehearsal dinner. Our wedding week was extremely crazy and emotional, but I'm glad you and Jessica were there to help. I am so happy that we found Holly Hills on Wedding Wire last year. I thought the photos online were beautiful and I had to schedule an appointment to go visit Holly hills. I'm so glad we choose Holly Hills! I've heard from so many people that the venue was beautiful. The food was great too. I was very much impressed by the food and the guests told me the same thing. It was so yummy! Thank you for being a great support for us during our wedding week when my family and I were  extremely stressed. I know Isaac and I were both extremely stressed and sweating from the extreme heat that day, but we were so happy that day that nothing else mattered. I was already extremely stressed before the wedding and with what happened to my mom that week, it made me even more anxious and a complete mess. Thank you so much for your support and that of your staff. They always say nothing ever goes perfect on your wedding day, but for us it was pretty near perfect. We are extremely happy with how everything turned out.  I attached a photo of you at the wedding which I though you would like! Once I get a chance I will write a review for you on wedding wire as well. I cannot say thank you enough for all you help and support during the planning process and on our wedding day.

"An amazing experience from start to finish! "

(Wedding Wire Review)

Planning a wedding (and rehearsal dinner!) at Holly Hills was an amazing experience. I worked closely with Abbey Fry, who was always accessible via email and phone (she answered inquiries on the same day, often within an hour!). We also had numerous in-person meetings to make sure every detail came into place just right. A few days before the wedding, we brought her 8 different boxes of decorations with instructions and she made sure everything was set up just right on the actual day. Her and her staff are one of a kind, and the day went off without a hitch because of them. The food is incredible - the hardest part of the tasting was narrowing down our options, because we loved everything so much! We ended up doing a buffet style dinner so that guests didn't have to choose between the pork medallions and parmesan-encrusted tilapia. Delicious!! We were also extremely pleased with the bartenders. The venue itself is so picturesque. I did a bridal shoot a few months before the wedding and Holly Hills allowed me and my photographer to go on the golf course to get the best shots. The day of the wedding, my husband and I had our first look at the bridge out on the course. I couldn't be happier with how all the photos turned out. We initially wanted to get married outside and have the reception inside, but since our guest list was 200 Abbey suggested that we flip it and get married in the main dining room, have cocktail hour in the upstairs lounge/outside porch and firepit area, and then have our reception outside in a tent where our guests would have more space. It turned out BEAUTIFULLY. The dining room was so lovely and we didn't have to worry about the elements. Having the reception in the tent was perfect as well - 2 of the walls were clear, and so when the sun began to set everyone could see and spontaneously went outside to watch from the hilltop. Bottom line, I can't imagine having my wedding anywhere else. An amazing experience from start to finish!

"I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone..."

(Wedding Wire Review)

Holly Hills was the perfect venue for our reception. Abbey Fry, the event coordinator, did a great job managing my party from day one: she helped us pick a delicious menu (the mashed potato bar was a big hit!), she coordinated with all my other vendors to make sure that the event flowed smoothly (even when we deviated from our originally-scheduled timeline), and she made the reception venue look great (we dropped off the decorations with instructions the week before the event and she set them up to perfection). The site is lovely (and they were so accommodating about photography--not only did my groom and I get some lovely pictures around the course on the day of the wedding, we were also able to schedule our engagement session there as well), the food is always delicious (my brother and his wife were also married at this venue), and the staff is friendly, professional, and courteous. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful site to host a wonderful night of dining, drinking, and dancing.

"I would recommend Holly Hills to anyone getting married!"

I wanted to let you know how much I really appreciate everything you did to make my wedding happen! It was absolutely wonderful! I would recommend Holly Hills to anyone getting married! I am so glad that we had our wedding there!

You made the wedding planning process so much easier for me. I really appreciate how available you were to answer my questions! We probably sent about 500 emails back and forth lol! Wedding planning is so stressful and it was so nice to know that you had my back :)

Let the chef know that the food was amazing as well!

Sorry it took my so long to send this but I have had a crazy busy 2 months since my wedding on Oct 3rd.

I just have one question lol. Since it rained the day of my wedding we could not get any pictures on the beautiful grounds. Would it be possible if we could come back in spring or summer and get some outside pictures done? Kind of recreate it on a better day?

Thank you again for everything,

"I had not a single worry and was able to enjoy my day..."

(Wedding Wire Review)

My summer wedding at Holly Hills went exactly the way I pictured it! I had Abbey Fry as my event coordinator and she did a fabulous job! I could not thank her enough for all the time she spent over emails and phone conversations with me. She made me feel completely comfortable to ask any and all questions a soon-to-be bride has when they are planning a big event. She also did a wonderful job the day of the wedding. Being a type-a person, I anticipated that I would be nervous and stressed the morning of my wedding, but thanks to Abbey, I had not a single worry and was able to enjoy my day knowing she would be taking care of all the details! She helped with transitions, worked with my dj and photographer wonderfully, and she also helped orchestrate my sparkler send off! Abbey was a natural at making sure all the details were taken care of from putting a vase in my send off car so my flowers would stay alive, to putting my veil on last minute before I walked down the isle! Holly Hills was such an accommodating venue. I was able to drop things off the night before after my rehearsal, and I was able to get ready the morning of my wedding at the venue. My photographer and I were also able to look at the grounds and plan out some photos prior to the wedding. Holly Hills was a very reasonable venue when it came to price since you can customize your menu and pick and chose what you would like. I had my ceremony on the beautiful hill top outside and my reception in the main ballroom. My guests were able to enjoy cocktail hour in the bar/patio area while the wedding party and family took photos. The food was wonderful! We had the chicken marsala, mashed potatoes, and the vegetable medley for the entree. All of these were delicious, along with the crab stuff mushrooms during cocktail hour (Abbey made sure to save a couple of these for my husband and I!) Thank you again Holly Hills for making my wedding a dream come true!

My husband and I had our ceremony and wedding here on Sept 12. The staff is super professional and attentive. Abbey, the coordinator, worked with us from day one, was very responsive and ensured that the day went off without a hitch! It rained all morning into the early afternoon, Abbey knew that we wanted to have our ceremony outside as planned. Fortunately the rain stopped and we were able to proceed outside as planned, Abbey and her staff worked quickly to ensure that everything was ready to go right on time! I would recommend Holly Hills to anyone looking for a great venue in Frederick County! Thank you for everything you did to make our day perfect!

"The happiest day of our lives was absolutely perfect at Holly Hills."

My husband and I got engaged Christmas 2014 and we knew we wanted a short engagement. We found Holly Hills and visited in January and we immediately fell in love with the space! We had a wonderful first meeting with Abbey Fry, the Events and Catering Manager and as soon as we walked out we knew this was going to be our venue. Here's how our experience went:
Contract: We were given various options and scenarios that helped us stay within our budget.
Food Tasting: The food was delicious! One of the easiest decisions we had to make.
Assistance w/ Decor: HH is so beautiful, we didn't have to do much to dress up the place. We kept it simple and classy and Abbey said her team would take care of the set up and take down of centerpieces and flowers.
Timeline: We spoke about the order of events and she put a timeline together and shared it with our DJ and other vendors.
Engagement Photos: We were able to come to the venue and get our photo session which was absolutely beautiful. HH has a bridge and barn that make for lovely photos. This was at no additional charge.
Rehearsal: Abbey made time for us to come in before the rehearsal so we could bring some items and talk about last minute questions.
Day Of: I had nothing to worry about. Abbey and her team took care of absolutely everything - from greeting the vendors to making sure I was hydrated and that everyone was on time. The reception went without any glitches, we stayed right on schedule and we had guests come up to us constantly to complement us on the beautiful venue and the service. While we added about 35 guests about 3 weeks before the wedding, they were super flexible and used the space creatively as we were a little nervous that space would be too tight. Fortunately that wasn't the case and everyone enjoyed themselves!

The happiest day of our lives was absolutely perfect at Holly Hills.

"Pictures outside were amazing..."

(Wedding Wire Review)

We loved working with Holly Hills for our big day. We used their facilities for our reception and it went very smoothly. Abbey helped us with everything from planning it through the actual event itself, ensuring that all went as planned. It was a reasonable price and the food was great. The facilities are beautiful. It was the perfect amount of space for our guests and the set up was very convenient. Pictures outside were amazing, as they took us on the property to get the best pictures possible. I am very pleased with the atmosphere and overall event that Holly Hills helped us provide on our wedding day!

We were very pleased with the services provided to us by Holly Hills as well as our wedding coordinator, Ms. Abbey Fry. Abbey responded to our many inquiries and met with us on several occasions. She allowed us to sample all the food we would be offering our guest. The food was outstanding! Abbey is very personable and easy to work with.
