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!

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. If you want the perfect fairy tail wedding I HIGHLY recommend Holly Hedge Estate in New Hope, PA.

Hello Holly Hedge,
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)

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!

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!

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!

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).
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! Thank you Wendy, Liz, and Sara!!!!

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. Thank you Holly Hedge for a wedding only dreams are made of.

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.

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!

Having our wedding at the HollyHedge was one of the best decisions we made! We didn't have to worry about anything during the entire day. Wendy, Liz, Sarah, and Melissa were fantastic. Whether it was washing the mud off the bottom of my dress after pictures or following my husband and I around during cocktail hour with our own tray of food, the staff of the HollyHedge was wonderful. Our guests raved about the beauty of the estate, the food, and the service. We will always cherish the memories from our wedding at the HollyHedge Estate!

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!

WOW. Holly Hedge was the first and only venue I checked out. It had everything I was looking for: Tranquility, lush surroundings, Bucks county originality, a "barn" and even farm animals (the goats are awesome!). The quality of food and service was also very important to us. The food was very fresh, super yummy and is farm to table. The chef even prepared ice cream sandwiches for us as a wedding cake option.
We received rave reviews from our guests when it came to each of these elements. Wendy and Liz are a pleasure to work with.

The one thing I would give brides a "heads up" on is reservations at the 1740 House and Holly Hedge. There were several occasions where guests had made a deposit, but this was not on record in the hotel reservation systems. So, it took a little bit of back and forth managing from my end. I gave the inn keeper feedback and she was very appreciative and ensured me that this was a known challenge to guests and they were currently finding a better solution to their reservation system. Aside from that little glitch, the planning process and the day of exceeded my expectations.

I really cannot say enough amazing things about HollyHedge and the staff there.

We had visited a few other venues before coming to HollyHedge, but nothing really grabbed us. Half way through the tour, my now husband looks at me and goes, "This is the place." Throughout the whole process we worked with Wendy, who is absolutely wonderful! She officiated our wedding as well and was phenomenal. She was quick to answer emails, never made us feel stupid for asking questions, and really is just such a sweet person.

Now for the wedding itself: They seriously took care of everything. Everything ran so smoothly and my husband and I were talking the next day and there is not a single, even slight complaint either of us had. Liz was AMAZING. So nice, yet so in control of everything. Both her and Wendy stopped by the bridal suite to make sure things were going well and if I needed anything. I can't stress enough how on top of things the staff was. I'm a slight control freak and since I had to go start with hair and make up a little after we arrived there, I was concerned about things not getting done that I wanted. They did everything. They even had a server dedicated to us during cocktail hour when we were taking photos so that we weren't starving and got to enjoy some of the appetizers. Every single person of the staff, including at the inn, that I encountered that night was so lovely and made us feel so special. To top it off, when we got back to our room, there were rose petals leading up to our door, all our presents were there, the top layer of our cake was in the mini fridge along with a plate of appetizers in case we were starving.

Throughout the night and the next morning at breakfast, we had so many of our guests tell us how beautiful the place was, how amazing the food was (IT IS SO GOOD!), and how nice the staff was to them. I could seriously ramble on forever about this place and how perfect they helped make our wedding.

First off, I cannot rave enough about HollyHedge. My fiancee and I did not look long, in fact, HH was the first and only venue we visited. Wendy and Liz are absolutely fabulous. The estate grounds are gorgeous and our wedding was nothing short of spectacular. We did get married at an off-peak time which made it a little more of a bargain. It was so amazing, really.

Unfortunately for me, my mother passed away on New Year's Day. I was completely distraught and mourning the worst day of my life while planning the best day of my life. ALL of the staff (specifically Wendy, Liz, Sara and Kyle) were the most supportive and attentive staff. I obsessively emailed multiple times a day from the point of her passing until our wedding on April 6, 2013. There was never a day that went by where no one returned an email. My fiancee travels often and I had to make trips from our home in Brooklyn to PA to pick out the details of our wedding. Wendy was right there with a smile to ease my anxiety and really help me decide on every single thing. I would email pictures from Pintrest and they would help me execute the exact look we were going for.

As far as the room blocks, we chose to block all of HH as well as their other bed and breakfast named the 1740 House. Many guests raved about the accommodations and the uniquely beautiful settings at both places. The breakfast the day after our wedding was sooooo delicious. Everyone was hungover and it was the perfect end to a nice weekend.

The staff at HH also helped us pick all of our vendors. We LOVED every single one of them!!!! We just got our pictures (files) back of the wedding and we re-lived it all over again. We also chose to have an After Party for 2 hours in the Old Barn where our cocktail hour was. This was completely worth the tiny bit of extra money. HH is worth every cent we spent. I still receive texts, emails and Facebook posts about how wonderful our wedding was. We got married at HH also so it was c

The first time I laid eyes on this beautiful venue I knew there was no other place for us. The atmosphere was like a fairy tale, unbelievably gorgeous! The staff was an absolute pleasure to work with. Wendy, Sam, Kyle, Liz, Sarah and Kim (to name a few) were not only professional and responsive but incredibly talented and FRIENDLY!!! The food was outrageously delicious and we had a BLAST! The entire staff was wonderful including the people I had the pleasure of talking to in the morning who were setting up for the next wedding. I cannot say enough about how much I love Holly Hedge. Our guests have been RAVING...many have said it is the best wedding they have ever been to.

Our wedding and reception at Holly Hedge was amazing! The staff was so attentive (to everyone, not just us) and all of the details were exactly what we imagined. They even packed everything up at the end of the night for us. Wendy was incredibly in helping us plan and our day-of helpers were always there when we needed them (to bring us water after the ceremony even during pictures). We have been getting the best feedback from everyone who was there. We couldn't be happier!

Holly Hedge was amazing from start to finish. Regarding cost, they are worth every penny, they do not nickel and dime you and they are extremely flexible. Whenever we had any questions we received a response within hours from Wendy, Liz, or Sara. On the day of the wedding they made sure that everything ran smoothly. What we appreciated most was their guidance throughout the planning process, their responsiveness, and their willingness to accommodate all of our needs. I can't say enough about our experience working with them (not to mention the food is AMAZING)!

I couldn't be happier with my experience with HollyHedge Estate. When we first saw the place, we knew that HollyHedge was the only place we wanted to have our wedding. We had our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in the Old Barn and reception in the New Barn. Throughout the whole wedding process, Wendy, Liz & Sara were fantastic! They responded promptly to all questions, and always gave me answers that I wanted to hear. :-)

Friends had always told me to expect something to go wrong on your wedding day - I'm happy to say that it never happened! On the day of the wedding, everything flowed perfectly that I didn't have to worry about a thing.

The food was delicious, including the cocktail hour. I've gotten so many compliments about our wedding that I am so happy we chose to have our special day at HollyHedge Estate!

I highly recommend it!

Our wedding was actully held at the 1740 House which is a smaller venue for Holly Hedge right on the Delaware. We had 28 people and the staff at both Holly Hedge and the 1740 House gave our wedding the same attention to detail that a wedding of 300 would receive. It was amazing and very special with a very intimate and romantice and holiday feel. We also had our guests stay at the Inn and we stayed in the large suite, it was very special. We loved it.

I knew about Holly Hedge Estate from growing up in the area and I always thought it was a beautiful place. When it came time to find a venue to host our wedding it was the first and last place we looked at. It was perfect. The place itself is gorgeous, tucked away and private with all the trappings of an old country farm. The barn that we got married in needed no decoration the stone walls and lit fire place provided the most romantic atmosphere. The food was INCREDIBLE, people could not stop talking about how delicious it was and as a bride I found the time to eat & try everything. Most importantly they let me make the day mine, I had the flexibility to have my non-traditional wedding, to do the ceremony & reception the way that I wanted, but they guided me through the process with expertise and made sure that everything went as planned. They even made sure that my husband and I had a slice each of the pies that we served waiting for us in our rooms when we got back from the reception, which was incredibly thoughtful as I totally missed dessert! Their staff is amazing and friendly and I wish I could get married their every year! Thank you Liz & Wendy and all the staff and Holly Hedge, you guys rock!

Fabulous! Wonderful! Amazing! Wedding that we will never forget! From the minute I met Wendy, we clicked, so easy to work with and so accommodating. Sara was wonderful the day of the wedding, handled everything like a pro. The rooms was fabulous, the food was delicious! Even the most picky guests raved about the food, our cake was beyond our expectations and the after party a blast. The opportunity to eat breakfast with some friends that spent the nigh was great too!

HollyHedge is the best! Check them out!

Thanks to all of the staff.

I really cannot say enough about the beauty of HollyHedge and the amazing staff at HollyHedge.

First, let me say that I was planning my wedding in PA from FL. I was familiar with New Hope but booked my wedding at HollyHedge sight unseen after going through tons of photos online and the reviews here.

Wendy, Liz and Sarah, the events staff, are all perfect at what they do. These women appear to be so carefree and unstressed, which is great for a bride, and somehow just everything gets done and comes together perfectly, without you even knowing how. They were all beyond helpful and such a joy to work with. These ladies made sure my wedding was everything I wanted and absolutely perfect. They are wonderful.

As far as the venue itself, just browse through some photos. HollyHedge is a rustic fairytale. Everyone who attended the wedding was in awe of the estate. We had under 50 guests so were able to have our reception in the beautiful old barn, which I absolutely loved. The food and accommodations were amazing as well. If you choose HollyHedge as your wedding venue it will far surpass your expectations. It's impossible not to have a beautiful wedding here.

My Husband and I could not have been happier with Holly Hedge. It was a whole experience and everyone there had our best interests at heart the whole time. We were married on a Sunday so Sarah was our "day of" coordinator - and she took care of everything. But that is how we felt the whole day. Every time we would turn around and think of something it was already done. After the ceremony we were talking with a few guests and she came up and asked me if i was done with my bouquet (which i totally was. what the heck are you supposed to do with it after the ceremony anyway?) When we walked into the reception there it was sitting in water on our table. it was such a nice gesture and there were at least 20 more just like it throughout the day. Everyone there wanted us to enjoy and we did. Things you don't even know you want they take care of because they are good at what they do. It started to rain during our outdoor ceremony, and then there was a little hail, but there was a team of people standing by with umbrellas ready to help. We quickly went into the barn and of course the rain stopped but it was all so easy. It was great after all of the planning and hard work to just have a carefree day.

My husband and I chose Holly Hedge for our wedding day because it was so incredibly beautiful in the Fall and it was exactly what we had always envisioned. What blew us away though was the incredible quality of, well, EVERYTHING when we were there for our wedding weekend. The venue was breathtaking, the planning was perfect, the food was delicious, and the service was incredible - truly above and beyond. The staff ensured that everything went perfectly so I didn't need to worry or stress. They made sure we always had a drink and were having fun. They made sure our guests were comfortable and happy. And best of all, our closest family and friends stayed in the Inn that night and had an incredible brunch before departing in the morning. It was perfect having the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after party, and lodging all rolled into one incredible place. I am so thrilled to have been married at Holly Hedge and thank Wendy, Liz, Sarah, and everyone else there for making our day everything we hoped it would be and much, much more.

I can’t say enough about the wedding coordinators and staff at Holly Hedge for our wedding. It was perfect and the responsiveness and attentiveness that we got from everyone there during our year-long preparations for our wedding was outstanding. Wendy, Sarah and Liz were great working with us during our planning, as well as executing the rehearsal, ceremony and reception. The food was excellent and we were even able to eat, as Sarah had brought food from the cocktail hour down to us while we were taking pictures. The venue was spectacular when we had our wedding and we ended up booking the B&B so that we had a place to hang out and talk after the night was over. I can’t recommend Holly Hedge enough for their professionalism, responsiveness, care and flexibility for our wedding. We will definitely be going back there to enjoy the B&B and food!!

Great venue, great staff, great food, what more could a bride ask for? I picked this venue off the internet from over a thousand miles away and they delivered! From the first minute I set foot on the property to the moment I got in the car to leave after the wedding, I never had a single regret. I also don't have a single complaint! When I was planning the wedding I worried about picking a venue off the internet and I stalked Hollyhedge trying my hardest to find bad reviews and I simply couldn't find any. Then I had my wedding there and now I know why I couldn't find any. It REALLY is THAT good. From bringing a bucket of water to the bridal ready room to Sarah's magnificent save at the toast (I can't have alcohol and my husband grabbed my glass of ginger ale for the toast and Sarah rushed across the room to correct it before my hand even reached the champagne glass) to the pathway of rose petals and votive candles leading to the bridal suite, the entire evening went off without a hitch! My new in-laws even mentioned possibly having their 50th wedding anniversary there. Every guest described the entire evening as a fairytale and everyone raved about the food and the service. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing!

It has been over a week since our wedding and our whole family is still talking about what a beautiful day it was. It truely was the best day of our lives! I would absolutely recommend everyone to have their wedding at HollyHedge Estate!

We feel in love with Holly Hedge Estate at first sight and then after meeting Wendy we were sold on having our wedding there. We were to have a small intimate wedding and were treated the same as if we were having 250 guests. The numbers did not matter to Wendy, Sara and Liz it was all about making our day the most amazing day of our life. After booking our wedding we had most of our communication with Sara and I have to tell you she is the sweetest woman who bent over backwards to accomodate us, and always with a smile. I cannot thank these event planners enough for the wonderful experience we had in planning our wedding.

We found Wendy, Liz & Sara at Holly Hedge to be extremely helpful & approachable throughout our planning stages, and came up with some wonderful ideas. Holly Hedge is a picturesque venue, the perfect location for a wedding. We reserved the fifteen rooms in the inn for two days for our families and wedding party. We had a rehearsal dinner on site the night before and of course the ceremony and reception there as well the next day. It made it extremely convenient to do everything in one location. The food and the service were excellent.

HollyHedge was beautiful from start to finish. My husband and I immediately fell in love with the venue; and the innkeeper's warm chocolate chip cookies sealed the deal!
We were both born and raised in Bucks County, and we wanted to share the beauty of this area with our guests. HollyHedge was absolutely perfect, and we felt it was the quintessential property to display this charm. Wendy and team were excellent at every step of the way. Always incredibly responsive and easy to get in touch with. They're certainly time-tested wedding professionals, yet we never felt like we were just another wedding.
The day of, I was so impressed with how smoothly everything went, and how helpful the staff was. At every step of the way they were there and anticipated what we needed. From helping to bustle my dress, to ordering pizzas for the afterparty, to boxing our dinner leftovers (unasked!) and leaving them in our room for later; the entire staff went above and beyond to make our day incredibly special.
The unspoken bonus to this incredible property is the food. Every guest raved at how delicious everything was, from the appetizers to the main course, and I have personally never had a more delicious wedding cake!!
My husband and I spent our wedding night at the property, along with our wedding party and families. Everyone really appreciated the convenience of staying on location, and the breakfast the next morning was yet another delicious bonus.
We really loved every aspect of HollyHedge, and look forward to visiting in the future as "alumni."

Holly Hedge was the best decision I ever made for my wedding. Everyone there was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. They responded quickly to emails, and were extremely helpful with any issue that arose. Holly Hedge was also extraordinarily accommodating for one of my friends, who has cancer and thus has very specific needs. My wedding was beautiful, which is thanks to Holly Hedge's gorgeous, natural scenery and beauty. The people there were amazing as well - very helpful before and during the wedding. They made sure everything went smoothly. I love Holly Hedge.

Wendy and Liz ask all the right questions and make sure to get you the answers. Sarah is an a league all her own. She took care of quite literally everything on the day of the event. There wasn't a single detail that was left out or left to chance. I highly recommend this venue, just be sure to book it early, as it's becoming very well known.

We had an absolutely beautiful wedding at HollyHedge! We were told by multiple people that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. The food was delicious, the setting - gorgeous. It ended up raining on the big day, and we had the ceremony inside the old barn. It turned out wonderfully romantic and intimate. The staff was fantastic when it came to dealing with the rain - they were always there for me, the bride, but also all the guests, with umbrellas whenever necessary. I'd highly recommend them!

They did an amazing job putting everything where I wanted and they were very creative with some of my extra decorations. The reception hall looked exactly how I wanted it to! All of the staff was so very helpful and I truly felt special on my wedding day! The food is so amazing there. It has been a month since my wedding and I still hear people raving about the food. They are so flexible with everything and they really know how to work with your budget. As soon as I drove down the driveway I knew that this was the place for me. I am truly happy that I chose this location for my wedding.

My fiance and I first visited Holly Hedge in the fall of 2010 at the very beginning of our planning adventure. We instantly clicked with the bucolic Bucks County setting and the rustic elegance of the old stone bank barn, mixed with the modern conveniences of the reception barn. There was even a stunning courtyard in case of good weather and more than enough space for up to 200 guests and a 30 x 30 dance floor (which is huge.) The opportunities for photographs were seemingly endless, too, so that sealed the deal for us. Granted, Holly Hedge is not a budget venue by any means (one-of-a-kind does have its price) but after visiting in person, we didn’t even want to look at other venues.

At the time of our first meeting with Wendy, one of the on-site coordinators, we were considering an October 2011 date but that quickly changed when we realized this place books up about 16 months in advance! So...we left without a contract this time and took for a few months to revist our options. Plan ahead prospective brides - WAY ahead because Holly Hedge is no longer a secret!

When we finally got into the nitty-gritty of wedding planning, our next choice of date was New Year’s Eve 2011. We called Wendy and set up a meeting with my parents. That gave us just over a year to plan the wedding we wanted -- with one very minor snafu: turns out the owner had already promised the date to a friend but that had not yet been reflected in the master schedule. Whoops. With hearts temporarily sinking, we scrambled for a new date and landed on Friday, December 30. OK, so it wasn’t a NYE wedding but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as our anniversary will always be our own special day and not shared with a holiday. But enough about the less-than-ideal start! Things soon turned around once we accepted the changes and rolled with it. (See? Brides can be flexible, really.) We booked our ceremony and reception onsite.

Our relationship with all three of the staff coordinators, Wendy, Liz and Sara, quickly blossomed as everyone on staff realized that we were not planning a “typical” wedding. We had a very specific vision, partially inspired by my gown and the space. We wanted a winter Art Deco wedding with some romantic accents that would be emphasized by the rural setting and everything was to be period appropriate to the 1930s (I do mean everything, right down to the special orders for obscure liquors and coup champagne glasses.) Wendy and Liz got a TON of emails from me over the past year but they were so responsive and good about asking questions when they didn’t quite grasp what I was after that I never had a doubt that things would work out. They were always professional and courteous in our correspondence and lots of fun, too!

Overall, Holly Hedge provides exemplary service, award-winning cuisine that is as lovely as it is delicious (it was commented that this was the “best wedding meal ever”) and a one-of-a-kind venue in which to celebrate with loved ones. They are not always accustomed to creative and innovative ideas that challenge their well-oiled way of doing things but to be fair, they are willing to work with you. I’ve seen a lot of brides doc them points for flexibility and I have to agree that I got a similar vibe of resistance initially but I’m not docking any stars because ours was a very special situation. In the end, Joe, Wendy, and Sara bent over backwards to deliver absolutely everything we wanted with style and grace. This particular story has a very happy ending and we are so grateful.

Sara was a delightful day-of coordinator (she also ran our rehearsal) and so easy to approach with questions. I felt safe in her hands as she dealt with late arrivals and last-minute gawkers only seconds before I was walking down the aisle. I didn’t stress over anything and she continually checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were OK. She was gracious and calm and generally pleasant to be around so I put all of my faith in her abilities and allowed myself to relax and enjoy my own wedding. I cannot thank her and the entire waitstaff enough for their professionalism.

My final word to prospective Holly Hedge brides is this: book your wedding here if you want sophisticated charm and country elegance at a venue with a reputation for excellence. You will not be disappointed.

HollyHedge Estate was the perfect place for our wedding. We were looking for a unique place that was rustic and charming. We found all that and more at HollyHedge Estate. Wendy, Liz, and JC were wonderful to work with. From the moment we stepped onto the estate, the staff was professional and alert to all our needs. They were more than willing to accommodate my gluten-free dietary restrictions. The whole event went off without a hitch, but my favorite part was the ceremony. The old barn was the most intimate and unique setting ever. The atmosphere was INCREDIBLE and since it was a winter wedding, the fireplace was lit, candles were everywhere, and luminaries lined the walkways. It was absolutely stunning. HollyHedge helped us to do a candle lighting at the ceremony and it was the most beautiful event I’ve ever been a part of. I will never forget how incredible it was there and my guests could not stop commenting on how intimate and lovely it was. It is also the best place to take photos since the estate is so picturesque. The reception was wonderful as well and the food was DELICIOUS. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the cake was a huge hit. My guests were so pleased with the professionalism and kindness of the staff and we enjoyed every detail that Wendy and Liz helped us plan and execute. They worried about all the details we didn’t want to! It was so fun to continue the party in the old barn again after the reception and so many of my guests spent the night. It was like our own little fairytale and nobody wanted to go home! JC made it so easy to accommodate my guests overnight. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful and we were all sorry that we had to leave. HollyHedge Estate is one of the most unique and intimate settings for a wedding. We felt personally invested in and it was the most amazing event of our lives. I cannot recommend this venue enough. For those brides who want a stunning and unique day unlike any other, then HollyHedge Estate is the place for you!

My husband and I were recently married at the Hollyhedge Estate. We cannot say enough good things about our wedding, and neither can our guests. The estate itself is beautiful and romantic. The food at our wedding was amazing, and people raved about it. What really makes this place outstanding is the staff. Liz and Wendy handled every detail for us, which really helped to make the wedding planning process as stress free as possible. They were so cooperative and flexible, and were truly a pleasure to work with. In addition, JC the inn keeper was wonderful with all of our guests. Sara, our attendant the night of the wedding ensured that we enjoyed our wedding while still giving us time to thank our guests. We are so thrilled with the way our wedding went, and are frankly sad that it is all over. We plan on staying at the estate for our one year anniversary! Thank you everyone at the Hollyhedge Estate for making our wedding so special and memorable!

Holly Hedge Estate was truly amazing to work with from beginning to end. Wendy, our coordinator, was absolutely fabulous. They made our dreams a reality and everything turned out even better then we could ever have imagined. All our our guests were simply stunned and blown away by how gorgeous the venue was and how amazing the food tasted. And has been quoted by all of our guests that our wedding has by far been the best wedding they have ever been to. There is nothing I would change about our day and I would HIGHLY recommend Holly Hedge Estate to anyone. They are professional, sweet and very easy to work with.

Thank you so much to all of the staff at Holly Hedge Estate - you have made us feel welcome and at home from the very first moment we arrived at your venue and can not thank you enough for the wonderful service you have provided to us.

Our wedding at HollyHedge Estate was truly magical. The location is beautiful and the entire staff was amazing! Wendy, liz, and Sara (who helped plan/ shape/ and execute the wedding) are the best! The innkeeper was wonderful as well. Our honeymoon suite was first class and one of a kind! The entire property was full of old-school charm and whimsey. We received many compliments about the venue, staff, and food. Oh, the food! Our appetizers set the bar high with unique choices complimented by accessible favorites (such as ahi tuna on an udon spoon, asparagus puff pastries, gourmet sliders, and taste of grilled cheese with a side of gazpacho) but the entrees rose to the challenge producing delicate fish and filet so tender it could be cut with a fork. So to recap... great venue, excellent staff, easy to work with, and amazing food...enough said.

My Husband and I fell in love with this place the first night that we visited. We loved how the space allowed you indoor and outdoor options that were beautiful.

Four things really stood out in my mind about this place. The first was the lovely ceremony space. Because Liz, (the wedding cooridinator) checked the weather frequently, we were able to hold our wedding outside with some sense that we weren't going to get stormed out. During the cocktail hour we went on the balcony with the best man and maid of honor for our speeches, and the view was truly breathaking.

Liz was wonderful - the staff was wonderful. We had our own server who made sure our glasses were never empty and thought to do things that we would never have considered which made the day go so much smoother.

The servers and bartenders got in on the action in the best possible way - adding to the party atmosphere.

And finally, the food was excellent. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding.

My daughter's wedding was on an overcast day so her dream of an outdoor ceremony was in question. Wendy Hendricks, an event planner at Holly Hedge, monitored Doppler radar, and was willing to switch the set up outside at the last moment to please us! The estate is so breathtakingly beautiful with the sweetest stone buildings, gorgeous brick terrace and the wedding was even more perfect than we ever imagined. Our guests raved over the filet mignon, and the grilled salmon entrees. The wedding coordinator, Sarah, kept things moving along, but still was willing to go above and beyond, helping guests and the bride all night, and was so gracious no matter what. Our closest family stayed with us that night and everyone loved their comfortable rooms. We really felt as if it was our own home, and we made ourselves comfortable with tea and snacks after the other guests had gone home. The next morning, early risers were greeted by cheerful J C, the innkeeper, and the most delicious coffee, strolling around the pond. When breakfast was served, no one could decide which was yummier, the Very Berry Pancakes or one of the fabulous omelets. No one went hungry, that's for sure, and we loved the friendly homey atmosphere where we get our dishes from the china cabinet and help ourselves to juice, croissants, homemade coffee cake or fruit. We just could not say enough about the lovely wedding that came true thanks to Holly Hedge Estate. It was truly a lovely day and exactly what we wanted!

Our wedding was in Sept at HollyHedge. We could not have been happier with everything. We rented out the B&B for our guests, which just made everything more special because we all got to share in an delicious breakfast the next morning.
The staff was so easy to work with and put all of my fears to rest. They were so welcoming and professional we could not have asked for better people. The grounds are also very beautiful, we got so make good pictures with amzing backgound. I would recommend HollyHedge to everyone, from the appetizers to the spectular dinner it was all top notch!!!

Magical, Mystical, Memorable. This is how my new Daughter-in-law and Son and both sets of parents and family and friends described their wedding.
The first time we spoke to and met the staff we fell in love with the Holly Hedge experience. The event planner's Liz and and Wendy spectacular. Every wish of the bride and groom were answered ten-fold. Their staff from the cocktail hour through the reception were outstanding. The food, the service, the entire presentation was excellent. The grounds were beautiful, serene, peaceful.
The Inn Keepers Tricia and Sue could not do enough for our family and guest. They went above and beyond the call of duty. The entire event was Magical.

They truly made our day, "OUR DAY". We had the grounds to our selves all day, Liz was right there when we stepped out of the limo asking what she could get us, we were brought drinks and food during pictures, and never had to ask for anything because they were always one step ahead! From the time we arrived until checkout the next day we were completely taken care of - Liz, Albie, and Trish were all wonderful! Almost a month later, people are still talking about it!

HollyHedge was a dream venue for us! Albie Snyder and the rest of the staff were so generous with their time, so flexible, and really fun to work with. My husband and I are both vegan, so the team worked hard to help create a vegetarian wedding that was not only delicious, but also comforting to our guests. Albie was exactly the kind of person you want helping you on your wedding day - attentive, responsive, kind, and really focused. He completely set us at ease on our big day, so that we didn't have to stress about any of the little details and could just enjoy our wedding for all it was meant to be. HollyHedge also happens to be absolutely beautiful - our guests could not stop talking about how wonderful everything looked - a lot of people actually told us that our wedding was the best one they'd ever attended! For the animal lovers out there, HollyHedge has a small piece of land on the premises with very friendly, sweet goats that we were able to interact with, which was a huge highlight of my weekend. It was a home away from home for us, and being married there proved to be a true reflection of our love for each other. I would highly recommend HollyHedge to anyone looking to be married at a very unique, captivating venue with an attentive and loving staff.

We can't say enough about HollyHedge. Beautiful venue, wonderful food, amazing staff. Our guests raved about every detail.

Our aim was to have a romantic, rustic, no-frills kind of wedding that would still be memorable, and Hollyhedge delivered. The fall setting was incredibly idyllic, and the comfort food selected for our menu (sliders, grilled cheese, roast turkey with cranberry walnut stuffing, etc.) was possibly the tastiest we've ever been served at a wedding. Coming from NYC, we found the prices to be more than reasonable - plus the inclusion of the cake and floral centerpieces made the cost even more attractive.

Our coordinator Liz is top-notch. She saw that we got everything we requested - right down to the cream cheese icing on the cake! From the moment we met her, we knew her no-nonsense style would make her the perfect person to help execute our big day. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but she and her team handled so many elements (coordinating the cake, staging our ceremony, delivery of the flowers, etc.) that we were never really worried how the day would unfold.

The B&B was also a perfect opportunity to unwind after the event. Tricia and Susan took great care of the guests that stayed the night of the wedding, and they really made us feel at home when we stayed an additional few days as a sort of mini-honeymoon (the big one happens next year). We even came in one night to find slices of fresh-made coconut pound-cake waiting for us on our nightstand (yum!).

The entire event was flawless and we can't wait to go back and stay for our anniversaries! If you want an event that is simple and rustic, yet charming and romantic, you can't do better than the Hollyhedge Estate.

My experience with the Holly Hedge Estate was nothing but the most positive possible. The entire staff from was so accomadating, friendly, and supportive through the whole process. The end result became the wedding of my dreams and when I look back I can't stop smiling. The wedding coordinators, Liz and Albie and the Inn keepers, Tricia and Sue are amazing. Whenever we had a question or concern they were always there to listen or answer our questions. The wait staff was very professional and made cocktail hour and the reception go off without a hitch! The food from appetizers to the main course to the cake was delicious!!! Our pictures are going to be amazing because of the natural beauty. The grounds of The Holly Hedge are beautiful, I fell in love with it the moment I stepped foot onto the property! I felt as though I were right at home during the entire process. I am so grateful to everyone there that I can look back on our special day and say "it was perfect." Our family and friends are still talking about how wonderful everything was and how much fun they had. I can't say enough about how great my experience was!!

Holly Hedge helped create the outdoor wedding of my DREAMS! They were willing to trim bushes a little so my audience could best see me; they have such a romantic decor; the landscaping is so picturesque; they really did whatever they had to do in order to accommodate my dream. I had to make very few concessions . . . as a matter of fact, I can't think of one! The wedding coordinator named Liz worked magic for me. Everything about the estate's landscaping is just so quaint, so charming, so . . . photographic. And it was really important to me that their reception hall is large enough to accommodate all my guests . . . I'd been to a wedding at a hall nearby, and the guests were split into one room for eating and another for dancing. Guests ate and danced all in the same room at Holly Hedge. I had been trying to prepare myself for something to go wrong with my big day, as I've heard something always does, but EVERYTHING about my wedding went perfectly at the Estate! I can't wait to see my wedding photographs taken there!

From the moment we arrived at HollyHedge Estates to tour the facility until we said goodbye after the wedding we were comfortable with the staff, relaxed, happy and able to enjoy every aspect of our daughter's wedding. Our wedding coordinator was professional yet she felt like a friend of the family, and we will all miss working with her.

Since we spent 24 hours at HollyHedge, from the start of our rehearsal luncheon, to the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after-party at the barn, renting the mansion for the night and brunch the next morning, we had many special requests, all met with a smile for our coordinator. Planning the wedding was stress free!!

The innkeeper and staff went well beyond the call of duty - they were helpful and friendly to our guests. We had two infants spending the night, and the innkeeper was especially accommodating and helpful to all of our needs.

The food was delicious, service terrific, atmosphere lovely!! My only regret is that we cannot do it all over again!!

My wedding was definitely the best day of my life, thanks to Holly Hedge. I was not a bride that had everything planned out, so Holly Hedge definitely surpassed my expectations regarding organization and wedding planning. My wedding day could not have gone smoother and many of my guests said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The staff was responsive to everything we asked and they were extremely accommodating to all of our guests. The property is beautiful and it was really great to wake up and be able to have breakfast with all of my guests staying at the inn.

We had a 25th wedding anniversary/vow renewal ceremony at Holly Hedge. It was a small affair just for our children and mothers. We were treated by Albie as though it were a wedding complete with cocktail hour, gourmet dinner, and dessert out on the patio. It was a 4-hour event with the head chef coming in to prepare our meal and Albie acting as bartender, server, and wedding photographer. We used the courtyard for our vow renewal ceremony and the main house for the meals with time for photographs on the gorgeous estate. Our grown children were delighted as our little celebration was a beautiful event thanks to Holly Hedge. Would recommend them for any important event you wish to cherish.

From the first time we visited Holly Hedge, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The gorgeous landscaping, the quaint feeling of the inn, the charm of all the unique buildings and guest rooms, and the overall rustic yet elegant vibe�it was as if the vision in our heads had instantly come to life!

The staff were all very pleasant and helpful (even our guests commented on that), but I couldn�t have imagined our wedding day coming together as perfectly as it did if it wasn�t for Liz. Liz Stout was our event planner and she was unbelievably helpful. From the first time we met with Liz, she was enthusiastic about making our ideas reality and helping us create our ideal wedding day. Liz worked with us on every detail and always did her best to accommodate our requests. She had patience for all of our relatives and vendors (um, even the overbearing ones) and made every effort to ensure that our every whim was fulfilled. Liz is a definite asset to Holly Hedge and we appreciate all of her hard work that made our wedding day a success.

For weeks after the event, guests continually commented on how delicious the food was and how charming the accommodations were. Holly Hedge truly does feel like an escape to a magical place, and you should be proud of the wonderful establishment you�ve created. We are so glad we were able to experience all that Holly Hedge has to offer for our wedding.

We will be sure to visit for many anniversaries to come! Thanks again to Holly Hedge for making our day so special.

Warm regards,

Albie, the on-site wedding coordinator, was wonderful during the entire wedding day as he took care of things so that my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything at all.

We checked in on Friday (for our Saturday wedding) with our friends and family, and made it a weekend long festivity. We held various events (rehearsal dinner, after party following our reception and Sunday brunch) at the Estate - each event was perfect, with its own personal touch, and a lot of fun. We have received compliments upon compliments, with the consensus being that this is one of the best weddings anyone has attended - between the unique and beautiful grounds, the staff and most importantly, the food - it was an incredible weekend and the perfect place to get married!

We recently got married at HollyHedge and everything was absolutely perfect. From the day we booked it as our venue through the day after the wedding, the staff at HollyHedge made the planning and execution process effortless. At one point I got nervous because the whole process was so easy, I thought that I must be forgetting or neglecting something - but my worries were in vain, they took care of everything. The grounds and facilities are gorgeous and certainly make for a beautiful, unique wedding venue. Having the guest rooms on site made it a wonderful weekend for our immediate family and close friends. All of our guests commented that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had been to. We also received a ton of compliments on the food - something that is rarely good at weddings. Not only was the food displayed beautifully, but the quality was excellent. Overall I have no complaints - HollyHedge was perfect.

There weren't any problems at all. Very easy, very smooth, and stress-free!
They also gave our grandmother special attention since she was in a wheel-chair.
One of my childhood friends told us that this was the most elegant and classy wedding he has been to. We are still getting wonderful comments from friends and family about HollyHedge and our wedding in general. Other than the summer heat on that day I wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you!!!

No one can stop talking about how relaxed and intimate our ceremony was and what a blast we had at the reception. I was very impressed with the food and the portions were huge! My husband is a chef and food was very important. Everything seemed effortless to me (the bride) and our guests because of the hard work and professionalism the wedding co-ordinator (Albie) and his staff at Holly Hedge. Although I live in another state and work full time the wedding co-ordinator was patient and always available. Every detail (that I hadn't even thought of) was taken care of with elegance. I have been involved in helping plan friends wedding at different venues and the value at Holly Hedge is unparelled.

"That was the best wedding I was ever at" is what many of our family and friends called to tell us after.
Thanks!

It truly was a "fairytale" wedding and HollyHedge staff had everything to do with that.(Perfect weather didn't hurt :-). ) We were told by so many guests that it was by far the most wonderful wedding they had ever been too, we agree! This review includes the Inn as well, the Inn staff kept the wonderful "glow" alive for the weekend for all of our guests. HollyHedge makes you feel like your event is the only event they've ever done. a tremendous feat considering all the weddings they do.

Our wedding coordinator, Alby, was excellent from start to finish. We planned our wedding from out-of-state and the services that Holly Hedge offered were excellent. The first time we visited the Estate we realized that the blend of beauty and rusticness perfectly reflected our visual aesthetic as a couple. From there, Alby helped us plan all the details. We attended a complimentary food tasting dinner which was also attended by some of Holly Hedge's preferred vendors. From this experience, we chose our menu, our florist, and our ceremony musician. All of our other vendors were chosen from their preferred vendors list. Our original plan to have our ceremony in the courtyard were thwarted by triple digit temperatures, but Holly Hedge offered the "old barn" as a plan B. It worked out perfectly and was absolutely stunning. The grounds were lush and well-kept and provided an excellent background for photos. The reception was wonderful, the food delicious, and the service provided by all of the staff is to be commended. Alby was on-site the entire night and quietly and efficiently handled all issues that happened to arise (including one unruly guest...which I heard about AFTER the honeymoon!). We booked the entire Inn for our guests, and heard nothing but rave reviews on the sleeping quarters, breakfast, and service. Even after the wedding, when our groomsmen "lost" their tuxes, Holly Hedge helped us find them. Thank you Holly Hedge Estate for making this truly an event of a lifetime!

Hollyhedge was delightful, elegant and relaxed - just what we were looking for. Alby was fun to work with during the planning stages--he coordinated the ceremony and reception seamlessly so we could relax and enjoy our wedding. We loved being able to stay at the inn, waking to a delicious breakfast and spending that much longer with our families and friends. Our guests are still calling us (and our parents) to tell us how romantic and fun the day was. How perfect!!

HollyHedge and its staff was an absolute dream. Aside from being one of the most beautiful venues in the greater Philadelphia area, the staff was warm, professional and on point. They did an absolutely amazing job with every detail. They accommodated our every wish. Wendy and Albie went through great length to make sure everything was perfect. Albie, who was the manager on the floor and with whom we did most of our booking and planning, made sure to come check on us several times during the night. He even served our dinner personally and came back to make sure it was delicious! (Which it was!) Everyone raved about how incredible the food and the cake were. Even our pickiest eaters cleaned their plates! Having our wedding at HollyHedge was a dream come true. Everything went smoothly, and everyone had a blast! Even almost two years later, after attending plenty of other weddings, our family and friends still talk about ours! It is like every other wedding is compared to ours! All thanks to Albie, Wendy, Dan, and the amazing staff at the beautiful HollyHedge Estate!

If you are on the fence about whether to book your wedding at Holly Hedge Estate in New Hope, just do it. It's worth it. To be clear, this venue is on the more expensive side, and that was something my husband and I needed to consider carefully as we were paying for our wedding ourselves. However, once we got over that consideration and committed to the decision, we never looked back. Holly Hedge and its sister B&B -- the 1740 House -- are all interconnected. We can't say enough how this interconnectedness made things 10X easier. Everything from the catering, baking, accommodations, rehearsal party, etc., etc. is made much easier by the fact that everything is practically on site. We did not need to cobble together a bunch of vendors in the hopes that things would work out. Rather, we simply worked closely with Sara, Wendy and Liz (the wedding consultants) at Holly Hedge who pulled off amazing feats in order to accomplish our dreams. While other reviews mention the beauty of the grounds, and that is true, what really made us happy was the degree of professionalism of the Holly Hedge staff. Whatever we needed, anticipated, wanted, changed, or lost, the team was "on it." Both my husband and I work at jobs in the city which mandate that we be in control of everything, and being able to "let go" and have the Holly Hedge Team work their magic was heavenly. It made my wedding day so much easier as I could relax as I knew that the venue was in control of the day, and it would be flawless -- and it was. The grounds, old barn (where we had the ceremony), new barn (where we had the reception), and courtyard are just charming. Guests loved the food, cake, venue, and ease with which everything just flowed. Dynamics-wise, you can't beat the structure of this venue, and it was easy to reach from Philly, NYC and all points West (where our families live). In summary, the Holly Hedge scores 5 stars for a reason.

I had a beautiful wedding at Holly Hedge. I always wanted the "outdoorsy" wedding with a formal touch and Holly Hedge was the place to do it. The location of Holly Hedge is breathtaking. We were able to have up to 200 guests, have the wedding outside, cocktail hour in the old barn and outside, and the reception in the reception hall. (Just a warning - the reception hall can be a little tight with close to 200 guests and a 9 piece band). The day was perfect, the location was perfect, the service was perfect, the food was to die for (we did cocktail hour stations and the crab cakes and the filet for dinner), and people cant stop talking about the cake that is made on-site. The wedding coordinators were a pleasure to work with - Wendy, Liz, and Sara. The innkeeper J.C. was also great to work with! They made sure that all of my questions were answered and they provided me with great guidance during the day of the wedding. I couldn't be happier with the venue!

Gorgeous! Cannot say enough great things about this venue. Food was fab and grounds impeccable. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect! Any small issues that seemed to come up were addressed immediately and the wedding and reception went off without a hitch.
One thing they might wasn't to address is the uneven steps and patio since one of the bridesmaids feel down the stairs just minutes before the ceremony and several guests were tripped up in the chapel on some uneven ground covered by some carpeting. Not too much harm done but potentially dangerous what with ladies in high heels and elderly guests.
Liz handled the wedding coordination perfectly and even played a stand in for the pastor at the rehearsal since he was unable to attend.
Very secluded and private. A winner.

Your dreams of a fairytale wedding as a little girl become treasured memories at Hollyhedge. Having been married there myself on 6/4/11, I speak from experience.
Hollyhedge is elegant, lush, and unbelievably romantic. Picture a fieldstone manor estate accented with adjourning gardens, which in turn are connected by brick and gravel pathways. The pathways and structures are bordered by seamless, holly-draped barrier walls fortified against charming wrought iron gates. You can imagine that Hollyhedge creates an unparalleled wedding backdrop, making for exquisite photos (mine were all so amazing I’m having a hard time choosing the ones for my album!).
From start to finish, working with the staff at Hollyhedge was a delight, and by far the easiest of all my wedding-related affairs combined. They will handle everything for you…seriously. All you have to do is communicate what you need and they will miraculously pull it out of their “Mary Poppins” bottomless bag of fix-it’s and possibilities!
The staff is attentive and flexible for whatever you (or your guests’) needs may be. One of the individuals who attended my wedding had recently undergone a hip replacement. Knowing that an estate wedding would require a certain amount of mobility, she contacted Hollyhedge to inquire about the possibility of renting a wheelchair from a medical equipment company. Instead of a referral, they offered her a personal golf cart for the evening (complete with a chauffeur of course). She was provided with door-to-cart service from the moment she left her vehicle at valet, to the moment she returned to claim it at the end of the night. My parents still refer to this example whenever a conversation concerning “exquisite customer service” comes up. It is one of many things on which HollyHedge will far exceed your every expectation.
If you have out-of-town guests, don’t look for accommodations anywhere else because the B&B at Hollyhedge is as charming as it is accommodating. The atmosphere is classic and elegant. Innkeeper JC will make you feel like a VIP every step of the way, and they will customize your needs to very bottles of water or wine you leave for your guests in their designated rooms.

What really blew my mind is that the food at Hollyhedge measured up to the same level of excellence as its unique and exquisite ambience. In short, the food was phenomenal – from the cocktail hour to the reception meal and the picture-perfect brunch (which is included in any overnight guest’s stay) the next morning. Once again, Hollyhedge will customize everything according to your needs, from special dietary restrictions to unique foods and/or recipes, there is nothing they cannot accommodate. And, if you book your wedding at Hollyhedge you will thoroughly enjoy the menu selection and food tasting event; which features a decadent spread of appetizers, entrees and desserts diverse coupled and the melodic sounds of a quartet in the background.
If you’re looking for a unique, classic yet customizable wedding venue you cannot beat Hollyhedge. As a perfectionist, I researched every venue along the eastern seaboard, yet time and again, all of my research kept leading me back to Hollyhedge. Newly married and looking back on everything, my husband I consistently agree on one thing: when it comes to everything we had to choose between and from for the wedding, Hollyhedge was by far the best decision we made.

HollyHedge is an absolutely beautiful location that we would recommend to anyone. We selected this location because we really wanted the ceremony to be outside but in the event that it had to be inside we loved the old bar location. Turns out we ended up having the ceremony inside but we were able to have cocktail hour outside. It was an amazing day and we would recommend the site to anyone.

I can't say enough about this place. The staff was tremendous! Wendy, Sara and Liz made certain everything was perfect. We didn't have to worry about a thing. They were super attentive during the entire day and never missed a beat. Our day was perfect and I am thrilled that I can look back on the day and wouldn't change a thing. The food was fabulous. Everyone to this day talks about it how it was the best food they ever tasted at a wedding. The whole staff including the waiters and bartenders were great. They even participated in the cuban shuffle behind the bar. As a bride you get so worried about all the little things but everything was taken care of. Even the next morning flowers, cupcakes, etc., were all packed up and ready to go. Because HollyHedge is such a great venue in a perfect location it books up fast, so when you decide, be sure to have a date in mind and resesrve right away. I would have loved to have been a guest at my own wedding there.

Best decision we made! Our motto during the planning process was "go with your gut". I visited HollyHedge and knew they fit perfectly for the slightly rustic, full-of-character vibe we were going for and didn't wait long to sign the contract. We held our ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and after party all on-site. Our wedding parties stayed at the B&B. They are professionals through and through with every aspect of the planning from the guest rooms through to the after party.
Having everything at one location made everything a breeze. HollyHedge includes valet parking, shuttle service from their sister B&B 1740 House, open bar (wine, beer, liquor), champagne toast and even wedding cake. They have a flexible catering menu that allows your to select 7 hors'duerves, salad, 2 meats, plus a bunch of sides (plated, buffet or station style). The food is incredible! People raved about it!
I also really need to commend them on the day-of organization. They provide a wedding coordinator that greets vendors, keeps wedding parties on schedule and even cues the ceremony procession. It took such a weight off! She helped our wedding parties line up and even came and got me from the bridal suite for my grand entrance. Plus the staff even made a plate of hors'duerves and dinner for us while we mingled. Truly incredible. I realy can't say enough good things about them. It's not a cheap venue but I can't imagine getting married anywhere else.

This venue is amazing! From the first time I saw the HollyHedge, I knew that I had to have my wedding there. The grounds of the estate are beautiful and well maintained. The natural ambiance in the gardens and reception barn are like no other. What really takes the cake is the food. I've never been to a wedding where the food tastes like it came from an upscale fine dining restaurant (not to mention that the menu options are endless). I only wish that I had time to try everything. My guests are still raving about the HollyHedge and I couldn't be happier with the feedback I received. The one and only complaint is that the dance floor was dirty. Some of my guests told me that their feet were black at the end of the night after dancing barefoot. Other than that, I have no complaints. The event coordinators, servers, and staff were all wonderful to work with! They do book quickly so if you're considering the HollyHedge, make sure you book at least a year in advance.

We did end up upgrading liquor choices and using our own florists and wedding cake providers. As with the musicians we hired, HollyHedge Estate, and Albie in particular, made sure that the vendors needs were met and that all ran smoothly. The innkeeper was equally accommodating. Our stay at the bed and breakfast, and our guests, was wonderful. Courteous, non-obtrusive, gracious hosts all around. The food was superb and the setting gracefully elegant.

Totally worth the money! Holly Hedge takes care of so many of the little details that normally stress out a bride, the location is GORGEOUS (you will get such awesome wedding photos here), the inn is lovely, the ceremony options (several outdoor and at least one indoor) are wonderful, items included in the price (reception with great food, set up of favors/placecards/decorations, champagne toast, cocktail hour with awesome appetizers, open bar, amazing wedding cake, flower centerpiece credit, tables, linens, servers, tip) are great! We got a discount because we picked a holiday that wasn't super desireable but, after experiencing Holly Hedge for our wedding, we would have paid full price if we had to do it over again. Our only issues with Holly Hedge were: 1. Inn rooms for overnight guests aren't very handicapped accessible b/c of narrow doorways, steps, shower facilities in room (although during the ceremony/reception, handicapped guests were able to get around to different levels of the property via a fabulous golf cart, which was a big help). 2. No lighting on most of the property after dark, so it's pretty dangerous for guests trying to get to their cars (you should consider providing flashlights to guests after a reception that ends after dusk). Other than those items, A-MAZ-ING. We absolutely LOVED, loved, loved Holly Hedge.

We had our wedding reception (total of 190 guests) at Holly Hedge in New Hope PA in May 2009 (our ceremony was at a local church). Holly Hedge was an absolutely spectacular place to have our wedding. The actual grounds and buildings at Holly Hedge are beautiful. The cocktail/barn area is really unique. We had guests come to our wedding from all over the country, and still are hearing compliments about how beautiful our wedding reception was. The food at Holly Hedge is the best I've had at a wedding. The chef is very thoughtful, creative, and flexible--and the end product is delicious. The presentation was excellent.
I primarily worked with Liz, but also had interaction with Alby as we got closer to our wedding. Both were organized and responsive. They were also flexible and did their best to honor our requests. I really felt they personally wanted our day to be as amazing as possible. Also, Tricia and Sue who work at the Inn are so helpful, and really sweet people. The proximity to the New Hope/Lambertville town centers is a definite plus (we had a fun time with post wedding drinks and pizza at Fran's pub)! I'm so thankful that we were able to have our wedding at such a wonderful place.

Being married at Holly Hedge was like stepping into the pages of a fairy tale book. Surrounded by the winding country roads and historical homes of Bucks County, PA, the grounds are idyllic. Charming stone buildings, a cobblestoned courtyard, and naturally graceful landscaping create the feeling of being on the set of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Having never been to a wedding there ourselves, we were unsure about the quality of the serice and food--but Holly Hedge did not disappoint. Our planning process was made easy with the help of our onsite Event Coordinator, Liz. Whether it was taking us through our menu and wine selections, helping us formulate our order of events, or answering our seemingly weekly e-mails full of questions, Liz was always professional, knowledgeable, gracious, and accommodating. She was phenomenal and we are deeply grateful for her guidance.

The food, as it turned out, was delicious. A few months before our wedding we were invited to a tasting at Holly Hedge, where we were able to sample a large variety of cuisine to help us narrow down our choices. It was not only a big help in terms of creating our menu, it was reassuring to know that the quality of our guests' dining experience would be exactly as we had imagined.

Overall, our experience at Holly Hedge was everything we could have hoped for. From the magical setting to the friendly and warm staff, Holly Hedge is lovely and will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Holly Hedge was a perfect site for our February wedding. We booked out all of the rooms for guests to stay during their time in the New Hope area, and many commented on how friendly and helpful the staff at the inn were. And during the planning phases of the reception, both Albie and Liz (the event coordinators) were always available to answer my questions, help me make decisions, and plan the wedding process. During the reception itself Albie helped to keep my husband and I on track - without him there we likely would not have remembered to cut the cake! And when my husband and I arrived at the ceremony, Albie visited us while my mom was bustling my dress to give us some much-needed appetizers and drink. Like I said, it was those careful and pleasing attention to details that really made our entire experience with Holly Hedge great.

Wendy was such a great help through the entire planning process, always available and gave honest feedback. Sara was our day-of savor. The moment my husband and I walked through the gates at the end of the aisle she was standing there with 2 cocktails for us (YOU WILL NEED THEM!). Throughout the entire night Sara made sure we were happy, well fed, and glasses full. I wouldn't change one thing about Holly Hedge. P.S. the wedding suite is BEAUTIFUL.

This venue really set the scene for the look of our wedding overall. The property is absolutely gorgeous and well maintained. It is so romantic and historic. The staff at Holly Hedge is incredible. I had zillions of questions through the course of our engagement, and all I had to do was shoot them an email and I always got a response the same day. The day of our wedding, we had Sarah as our day-of event coordinator and she was great. She would check in to see if we needed anything, and if we were good she would let us be. Our wedding day could not have been more stress-free because of Holly Hedge. We dropped off our decorations a few days before with instructions on where everything should go and the staff took care of it and did it perfectly. The wait staff was great too - my husband and I had our own server, who got us drinks whenever we wanted and event brought a plate of hors d'oerves to us while we were getting our photos during cocktail hour. We received so many compliments from guests on the food (especially the cake!) and we were amazed how everything ran on schedule! Holly Hedge is a little on the expensive side but they are good about not having hidden costs and include things that many venues do not such as gratuity, dessert, linens and centerpieces. I am so happy with decided to have our wedding here!

HollyHedge was an amazing place to get married. I would recommend it to anyone. It allowed us to have an outdoor garden wedding and a big fun reception with lots of dancing and great food- in the same place! It is not cheap, but so much is included it is worth it. The staff is incredible. Our guests kept saying what a great spot it was. The food was so so much better than the tasting- I couldn't get over how great everything was. I can't imagine getting married anywhere else!

My only issue at all with HollyHedge was that they recommended Hairy Mary's to us to use for a florist, and they were awful. I think they should better screen businesses they recommend.

We were very satisfied with our wedding reception at HollyHedge, and believe it's the best venue in Bucks County.

The venue itself is stunning, especially the old barn, and their use of local and seasonal foods when possible made it all the more attractive to us. We didn't want the regular "wedding fish or chicken" you often find around!

They were very flexible regarding our wishes related to food choices, venue setup and decor. They did a magnificent job the day-of, they worked closely with the florist to decorate just as we had discussed, and everything was seamless. This was very impressive. Their staff on the floor was also very friendly.

They were very responsive to email through the planning process, and we were able to plan the wedding easily from California. We enjoyed working with Wendy, Liz, and
Sara - and Sarah was our day-of coordinator. We loved her. Very professional and also warm, and we'd especially recommend her.

Liz at the Holly Hedge was wonderful! She was great about keeping in contact with me from the time we booked the venue, but especially in the few weeks leading up to the event. She made sure that everything necessary was taken care of without ever seeming pushy. Above all she was fantastic on the day of the wedding itself - she was there for the entire time that our guests were there, making sure that everything went well. She was there when we needed her for anything, anticipated our needs, but she was never hovering over us - just showed up when necessary!

The only slight downside was the tasting for the meal. They only offer group tastings, not individual; at these group tastings, they only offer a selection, not their entire menu. They also have relatively few of these tastings, which was a bit difficult for us as we had to rearrange work schedules and travel 5 hours from our home when we had to go for a tasting (which we did twice). On the positive side, though, although the Holly Hedge policy is to not have individual tastings, they did offer several of the dishes that we specifically asked to taste when we had to go back for a second tasting, and we were able to come up with a fantastic menu!

We highly recommend Holly Hedge to future bride and grooms. The grounds are beautiful, your ceremony can be performed outside (with a no-cost indoor back-up plan should it rain so you won't spend months worrying about the weather), and Albie, the coordinator, is fantastic and honest and was a great resource for helping us make menu and logistical decisions. The food was fantastic as well. Not the typical wedding food you expect when trying to cater 100+ guests. We highly recommend their desserts as well (we did a tiny ice cream cake from an outside store and then did a dessert buffet). The location is close to Lambertville and downtown New Hope, so overnight guests have some very nice hotel options. Most of our guests regretted not making plans to spend the entire weekend in New Hope/Lambertville because it is just so beautiful. My only dislike for Holly Hedge is the decor of the reception hall. There is a rockwall mural that I was not fond of and planters spread throughout containing fake greenery. This all can be covered if you want to hire someone and spend some money (which we opted not to do).

Holly Hedge did a great job with my wedding. I could not have asked for a more beautiful venue to have my reception at. Alby, the event coordinator, was a pleasure to work with--always friendly and open to ideas. The staff were helpful and the food was great. I would definitely recommend HH to anyone looking for a unique and intimate wedding setting. The only drawback is the 220 person cap on the indoor seating.

I had my wedding at HollyHedge several weeks ago and had an amazing experience. The staff was professional and helpful leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day. We did have some issues with responsiveness as there are several planners who all reply using the same email. This did make for some confusion. However, the day of the wedding everything went perfectly. Sarah was our personal assistant and was just exceptional. She had food and drinks for us the entire night. I also would recommend staying over following the wedding. We went into New Hope for drinks afterwards and it was wonderful being able to stay so close!

I would recommend Holly Hedge Estate. There are positives and negatives, that I have listed below. I dwelled on a negative because it really irked me and I think other brides should be aware. In the scheme of things, I would still do it again, all things remaining the same.

We had lovely weather, the food was excellent-not your typical wedding food, and the venue was beautiful! The mashed potato bar was a hit among so many guests (even though I intially didn't want it and the fiance talked me into it) Wendy was also a pleasure to work with.

Just a couple of cautions:

As with any venue, if you want something out of the box, make sure it's written on the first contract you sign. My fiance wanted lamb for dinner (guests were getting filet, salmon, or vegetarian) we had the "lamb for groom" on the contract, thank goodness, because I had to remind them about it. I can understand-people aren't going to remember things that were said a year ago, so make sure it's written down!

Some tables didn't have champagne for the toasts, and they realized too late. :(

And this was the worst part of the day, and why Professionalism got 2.5. They would have a 0 if it weren't for my previous dealings with Wendy. This instance bothered me for the rest of the night on my wedding day, and it really should have been handled at a different time, or with a different person (not me). After my mother asked the bartenders to take the tip jar down for cocktail hour (because we already paid gratuity), I got tag-teamed as I was walking away from the ceremony. Yes, me, the bride, right after the recessional, tag teamed by the girl coordinating the day, and the innkeeper JC, about having our dog in the room. (Even though the dog had visibly been around all day long all over the grounds - they decided it was a convenient time for them to inquire about it, right after the recessional, and even more crazy, right after my mom said to take the tip jars down) JC snidely said, "It would have been nice to know you were having a dog in the room". I explained, I already talked to Wendy about this. (That's how I knew I could only bring 1 dog, when I have 2 dogs, and I had to board our other dog that night) "Oh, well it's going to cost you "x" dollars more then." (hmm, to make up for the lack of tip jars?)

Then, we had an after party, Wendy told my mother to bring cash for that part of the night. My mom brought cash, the exact dollar amount that Wendy told her to bring, and the day of coordinator tried to tack on another $200.00 cash that night. I'm not sure if this is normal practice, or if the day-of coordinators are skimming off the top. Just speculating here.


I WOULD STILL RECOMMEND THIS VENUE!!!!

I looked at countless venues in the bucks county area, and nothing compared to Holly Hedge Estate. (others were too busy, planes from airport flew right overhead, tented, or $$$$$) I would still recommend this venue as number one in the area to others. I can't tell you how many guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

My fiance and I really wanted to find a wedding venue that, on the day of the wedding, we could just sit back and enjoy. Holly hedge did just that! We were treated extremely well throughout our stay and our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about their stay and experience as well!

Planning went smoothly. Food was great, received lots of compliments from guests. Wedding coordinator was present the day of, running around and organizing all of the vendors and guests. I would plan another event at Hollyhedge in the future. The setting is beautiful and romantic, the guests loved it.

Holly Hedge has a beautiful setup andbackdrop for outdoor weddings. We were very happy with everything on our Wedding Day. Just wouldn't recommend staying overnight there unless you want complete seclusion. We got hungry around midnight and there was absolutely no one on the grounds to assist us in getting food or drinks or anything. Alby is a great help and has good ideas for wedding planning.

Holly hedge is a beautiful location. With my large family it was very nice to know that there was room to keep the kids busy while the parents were getting ready. The wedding coordinators were great working with us during our planning, as well as executing the rehearsal, ceremony and reception. Even though I agree with other brides statements about some inflexibility, I still would use them. Just don’t expect to have private or full menu tastings and like previous brides have said make sure everything is in the contract. They no longer allow dogs in the honeymoon suite but we were “grandfathered” in and they allowed our dog with us for a fee. JC, one of the innkeepers, did a great job with showing us the rooms before to us actually choosing Holly Hedge and he was very patient when helping our guests book a room. I had been planning the wedding with the coordinators for over 1 year and they would respond promptly to every email I sent. One negative is that you have to pay more for Saturday but you are not able to have a rehearsal dinner or guests stay on site Friday if there is another wedding on Friday. Also, if you are planning on using the guest rooms to get ready, the staff will try very hard to get rooms ready for early check in but they can only do so much. You may find guests, or the groomsmen, waiting for a room to be able to get ready because they only have one bridal suite. Liz and Sarah were there the day of the wedding and they had everything planned perfectly and thought of everything for me. I didn’t need to stress about anything. They had all the gifts taken from the reception hall to the honeymoon suite. They had the cake packed away for me and, Sarah saved any food I did not eat and had it in the fridge in our room waiting for me. The brunch on Sunday was also great. They had Kyle, one of the innkeepers, running the whole breakfast area and he did a fantastic job of taking care of more than 30 of us.

My husband and I were married at the beautiful Holly hedge estate. Our day was amazing! The estate is so beautiful and we luckily had gorgeous weather to celebrate our wedding. The food was beyond spectacular and I have received so many comments about how the food was not your typical wedding food. The only negative thing I have to say about our experience was that the staff was a little unprofessional with us. We decided to have an after party at the barn and I was pretty much approached by a staff member and asked to pay for the after party! I think that is something that should be paid for before hand and the bride should not be approach in the middle of the after party to deal with that. Also, some staff members were a little rude to my guests and bridal party. Looking past that I would definitely recommend Holly Hedge Estate to everyone looking for a rustic yet elegant wedding experience!

The venue is lovely and the indoor/outdoor option is great. They claim to include everything (florist) but you only get a few flowers included. If you want a normal amount of flowers (what you see when you tour the place) it costs extra so plan on that expense.

Holly Hedge Estate made our dream wedding come to reality. It was the perfect place for us. We both loved the Old Barn where we had our reception and the pond with water fountain and those big trees for a solemn ceremony. A great place for an intimate wedding.

I would NEVER recommend Holly Hedge.The staff is absolutely awful! We had so many problems with Wendy from the very beginning; from her not remembering our names, losing our seating charts, never returning phone calls or emails in a timely fashion. When emails were returned she never answered all of my questions. On my wedding weekend there were so many issues that I can’t fit them all in this review. First, I’m pretty sure Wendy was intoxicated, no one could behave the way she did and not be under the influence. She kept forgetting who the groom was even though she met him a million times throughout the day! She really messed up our seating plan with extra tables in very weird places. When we tried to reconcile this she told us our way was wrong and she was basically going to do it her way no matter what. (My mom spoke with the people actually setting up and had them use our floor plan instead which worked wonderfully.) Nothing that was promised came through. There was supposed to be some food for us left in the room as we hadn’t gotten a chance to eat all night (we ate the goodies out of our welcome bags). The room had no heat (it was the coldest weekend of the year) and we also had some guest rooms without heat. The fire that was supposed to be set up in the honeymoon suite was not, there was one tiny log and a piece of newspaper on the side, my husband lit this and it lasted for all of about 15min. They really messed up our food bringing out the cocktail appetizers and opening the food stations at the same time, then ending the food extremely early. When my mother asked about this Liz blamed it on me, saying I had changed the plans at the last minute!! A month after the wedding, I am still getting erroneous charges on my credit card. I finally had to cancel my cc. If these were legitimate charges they would have been charged immediately after the wedding and someone would have called to let me know they were charging my card. STAY AWAY FROM HOLLY HEDGE!

HollyHedge Estate responded with the following comments:

Hi Jenn - We were happy to hear that Billy (the groom) and his family enjoyed everything and personally thanked us the next morning for the beautiful evening.

We agree that your mother's floor plan worked well, after some tweaking due to space constraints and restrictions. While there was one extra table setup, we had it taken down the day before the wedding and scheduled time of setup.

We can also agree the weather was uncommonly cold throughout the weekend. Our staff worked round the clock to keep walkways clear of ice and snow in preparation for the event and our heating company came to fix the heating situation as soon as possible.

In regards to the dinner reception, the food service followed the contract and schedule that had been confirmed with you and/or your mother leading up to the wedding. Liz would not have been communicating with either of you as she did not work that day.

In regards to the credit card charges, it is written in our room confirmation policy credit cards will be charged for any miscellaneous damages done or keys not returned. We found one of the rooms to be trashed and several keys missing upon checkout. As of this weekend, two keys have been returned and your card has been credited.

Finally, please refer to the legal guidelines of the social networks’ in reference to your false accusation against one of our event planners.

HollyHedge strives to make each and every wedding the best it can be. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations and were left feeling unsatisfied. The HollyHedge family only wants a magical and beautiful experience for you and Billy to share. Have a wonderful life together.

Sincerely,
-The HollyHedge Staff
