The Holly Farm

Walk through The Holly Farm’s welcoming rustic gate and enter a secluded world of romantic winding paths and private sun-filled cottages tucked away among exotic palms, towering bamboo, banana trees and sweetly scented blossoms. Family owned and operated since 1991, this chic six-and-a-half acre Carmel hideaway nestled against the Santa Lucia Mountains was created with destination weddings in mind.

Holly Farm is outstanding in all the above areas. You also need to list and rate the sense of humor of all staff. All 140 guests who attended loved the Farm, the staff, the professional--but not uptight--qualities of all involved. So many of our family guests thanked us frequently for "providing" such a fun, relaxed and perfectly managed event. We were not the "providers". The staff and venue were.

Erin and the whole family at Holly Farm could not have been more accommodating, gracious, generous and just plain great at their jobs!

We chose the venue based on its location and beautiful layout but what we got in addition was a brilliant wedding team who made every step of the way as easy as pie! Open to all our crazy ideas as well as making our process a breeze (we planned it from Dubai) we only wish everyone had a place to call wedding-home this perfect.

The Moses family are gifted with a talent known as 'the ability to listen' and I mean really listen. Every detail was remembered, each email double checked and our vision perfectly recognized.

With 130 guests from all the corners of the world we had more than a few guests blown away by the venue and more so by the brilliant execution of the day. It was honestly wonderful to know that everything was just going to be perfect and stress free!

My experience at the Holly Farm was amazing from start to finish. We knew upon first visit that we HAD to get married there, so much so that we waited until the next year because they book up fast! The Moses' are the sweetest people you will meet and they are soooo helpful! They know the best of the best in terms of vendors and they make choosing them so easy - it gave me time to really enjoy the day and not stress. The venue is enchanting and it really did feel like a fairytale. Thank you Erin, Ryan, Doyle and Mary. You truly are the best in the business.

I cannot say enough good things about the Holly Farm, the Moses family, & the staff. They are the most genuine, cool, organized group of people I have ever met. Without them, I am sure that my wedding experience would not have been even close to as perfect as it was. Erin was so on top of the planning process, and after meeting her I completely trusted everything that came out of her mouth. Her taste is impeccable!! Ryan is the nicest, most laid back guy to have around during the wedding. He makes you feel like there is not a worry in the world. And then Doyle and Mary-well they created the place from nothing and it is the most magical place in the world, and they are sweet as can be. Gus and Rosa-you were awesome and helpful in every way! People said I was crazy when I booked the Holly Farm site unseen, but I just had a feeling. It turned out my feeling was dead on.

Staying at the Holly Farm, I would explain as 'adult wedding camp'. All of our bridal party got to know one another SO well, and that was one of my favorite parts about the weekend. They all stayed together in the beautiful houses and absolutely loved it-a type of experience you could never get in a hotel. All of the boyfriends/husbands were all buddies by day 2 and none of them knew one another going into the weekend. They would all just play bocce ball, have drinks and hang out while the girls got ready.

I cannot think of a single thing I would change about the weekend, and not one thing went wrong (that I noticed). It was a very unique experience and I agree with Brooke below when she says that the Holly Farm is the best kept secret in the wedding industry. It was perfect from start to finish. The Holly Farm and the Moses family will always have a very special place in our hearts!

The Holly Farm is the best place ever to have your wedding. The Moses family goes way above and beyond to make your day go smoothly and bring your vision to life. They are responsive throughout the process and so helpful. The team of vendors they can recommend are all amazing. We loved every minute at the venue and have heard again and again from our guests how "epic" the wedding was. It's a beautiful place and you truyl could not be in better hands to make your big day a success.

It would be impossible to improve upon our Holly Farm experience. We have received a crazy amount of positive feedback from friends, family, etc.--multiple people have said it was their favorite wedding of all time. I would love to think we had something to do with that, but really credit goes to the Holly Farm. Without belaboring the details, if the Holly Farm is still available for any weekend you could make work, book it now. Other than the decision to get engaged, that was easily the best choice I made in 2012.

The Holly Farm is an amazing venue! We had a spectacular weekend celebration with family and friends over 3 days. Even though a wedding requires an insane amount of planning, the minute we stepped onto the property of the Holly Farm, we felt the stress lifted. The Moses family managed every detail of the weekend so we could enjoy ourselves.
As soon as you open the wooden gate you enter a lush wonderland of orchids, tropical plants and outdoor rooms. We have had so many people tell us it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. We couldn't agree more.

My wife and I booked the Holly Farm, site unseen, based on photos, website reviews and word of mouth from a friend who done her wedding there. All of the glowing reviews and amazing photos did not do the Holly Farm justice. It is simply awesome. As amazing the venue is, the family that run the Holly Farm are really what set it apart from all the rest. Erin and Ryan have a way of instantly becoming your friend rather than wedding contractors. On top of servicing your every need, they actually seem to care that you have a stress-free event. I cannot say enough about their service and the unique quality of the venue. If there is an opening, book it. Now!
