As the mother of the bride, details are important. They are especially important when you live on the East coast far away from this venue!! My daughter and new... son-in-law live in San Francisco and found Holly Farm while searching on line. They met with Erin and called us that night to tell us they found the place for their wedding. I was shocked since they had only looked at two other places. I looked it up online and thought it looked pretty but had to see it in person. I booked a flight and was on my way. Erin and Ryan graciously took me and my middle daughter MOH, around for a tour. I remember saying to Erin " Your place is pretty online but it doesn't do it justice". Unless you are standing in this venue NO ONE can possibly explain the beauty. It is not only the aesthetics but more the feeling it gives you. You step out of the day to day world and enter a dream like vision. Honestly, it's as if someone zapped all of your stress and took it away from you. And, to think you have it until Sunday!! You will leave kicking and screaming. During the year my daughter prepared for the wedding, Erin and Ryan gave us another tour due to my husband and in-laws needing to see the space at a different time. We never felt as if we were an imposition. The wedding day turned out to be a beautiful sunny delightful day, even though we had an active wildfire in the Carmel area very close to the venue. When we arrived from the East coast earlier in the week, we had no idea this was happening and Tuesday ash was falling consistently. You can imagine how scared we were for the wedding. Erin and Ryan's dad Doyle put our minds at ease and promised us a beautiful day and he kept his word!!!! Mary (Erin and Ryan's mom) couldn't be a better organizer. She has just the right temperament for a big chatty group. For myself and my husband, to see everyone enjoy themselves and be able to get to know the other side of the new family means everything. It is the perfect place to join families and make wonderful new memories. During the wedding I knew the Moses family was close by and it almost seemed as they could read my mind. When I had a question Ryan or Erin would be in my eyesight but they would vanish when I didn't need them. Again, this is a perfect way of being close but not overly. All of the vendors that we used through the list given were also top notch. We are not people who complain much, but honestly we couldn't find one thing even if we wanted to. Our families will never forget the memories we have gained from this beautiful venue but more so we will never forget the feeling of love, contentment and ease we found at The Holly Farm.

Holly Farm is a magical place for a wedding! The Moses family make everyone feel warm and welcome-- it as if you are having the wedding at a private home (a pr...ivate home with perfectly maintained grounds, amazing flowers, and lodging for a huge wedding party). And Doyle, Mary, Ryan, and Erin (as well as everyone else who works there) make sure every detail is attended to. Thank you for making our son and new daughter-in-law's big day the wedding of their dreams. See More

Attended a wedding at Holly Farm last weekend and it was perfect. Everything was great but Britney provided extra special service. Loved the catering too!

To the entire Moses family & their wonderful staff,
As the mother of the groom, I was literally blown away by the kindness and show of support The Holly Farm sh...owed us. We literally showed up with 4 truck loads of wedding items and was greeted by the entire staff. They all helped us unload our vehicles and could not of been more helpful. The grounds were manicured to perfection for TJ and Ashley's wedding! It's so magical and enchanting I still cannot get over how beautiful the entire wedding weekend was!!! We will never forget the four days we spent at The Holly Farm and our families will cherish these memories forever! Erin and Ryan you were always so helpful and so much fun to be around! Thank you for making us all feel so welcomed and relaxed. Cannot forget to mention Gus, Rosa and little Gus! They worked their tales off to make sure we all had exactly what we needed at all times! Rosa made fresh pots of coffee every morning that was to die for! Thank you for such a beautiful wedding weekend and if anyone is on the fence about getting married here don't be! It's so worth it!!! Hugs❤️Linda De Stefano See More

It was truly magical. I'm the VP of Conventions & Tourism Commission for the City of Los Angeles. This venue would be my first choice for a wedding or family reunion.

As the Mother of the bride for a wedding last year, I cannot recommend Holly Farm high enough. The small staff obviously love what they do and take great pride ...in their venue. It was spot-less for 3 days, and everything ran like clockwork. If you want 'tropical' but don't want to fly to Hawaii, this is the place.
Love it, love it, love it.

This place is amazing! It was the storybook wedding for our storybook love we feel so fortunate that we had our wedding weekend here. The beauty of the place is reflected in every nook and cranny of the holly farm. Not only is the place special but the people here are just as beautiful.

As a year almost approaches since my wedding at the Holly Farm, I realize I should probably review this magical place.

I will have a few tips/downfalls but let... me first tell you how incredible this place and the Moses family are.

If you or your family are able to afford the Holly farm, please fork up the money and book this venue. Not only will you remember your wedding for a lifetime, but all of your guests will never go to a better wedding. This magical oasis allows for your closest family and friends to spend the best 4 days of your life with you. From the cute bungalows, to the games on the grass, the sweet house/land keepers, and the Moses family, your weekend will be pure bliss and not a worry in the world.

My mom and I were worried we needed a wedding planner to help with a few things or day of (especially because my mom and I bonked heads), but Erin assured us we didn't. She and her family are pros and make your entire weekend run seamlessly. Trust them.

It was expensive having to book with Tami and Le Creme, but we did and she also was great and very accommodating to different allergies.

There's not many other words I can use to describe the Holly Farm and our time there except magical. What better way to spend your wedding than for multiple days in a secluded place with plants, trees, orchids, and sunshine. My family even wants to go back during the off season and relive some of our best days.

As much as I LOVED this place and the Moses family, I do have a few suggestions for you so you can make your experience even more perfect:
-This was pretty disappointing to me because I am someone who watches a lot of movies and has expectations (maybe my fault?) but they do not clean up the honeymoon suite for you. I was actually really surprised since that is the room you and your girls are supposed to get ready in. But my husband and I went back to the room after the night of our wedding to sneak away and only the fire was lit but we had to clean all of our stuff off of the bed and floor. It would be nice if they could do that especially when you are rushing last minute when they tell you it's time to go and start walking. I would make sure to make a point of requesting this or even asking your MOH and bridesmaids to help out if they can't.
-Live music does stop at 9 so start your wedding early! Also, make sure you have a playlist for when the Dj or band stops. Our DJ was amazing (Will Magid, look him up and hire him) and made a playlist for us.
-the scotch and cigar bar: loved it but hated it. I wanted to open this bar up after the music stopped (at 9) but Erin, my mom, my husband, basically everyone, disagreed with me and told me to open it at 7. I wish I went with my gut because the majority of people were there and not on the dance floor dancing their butts off with me. Could be my family and friends like to drink but I would suggest opening it at 9.


That's it! Everything else was beyond perfect! If you are for one second debating whether to book it or not, stop debating and just do it! Just
Follow my
Few tips above. :)

WHAT. A. MEMORY. Our wedding weekend at The Holly Farm in August 2015 was a dream come true. As soon as we stepped onsite the previous year, we knew immediately... we wanted to host our closest family and friends on the property for our wedding. The Moses Family was a true pleasure to work with - they are incredibly passionate and dedicated to making each couple feel like part of the family. The majority of event coordination went through our wedding planner, Michelle Lee at Simply Events, and I was floored with the final execution. To the Moses Family and the Holly Farm crew - We can't thank you enough for the most formidable, extraordinary wedding weekend a couple could ask for! See More

I was in a few weddings this year as a groomsman and this venue absolutely took the cake. Huge convenience having everything on the same piece of property, and ...the help was excellent throughout the entire weekend. Knocked the socks off of every other wedding I've been to and an overall beautiful/elegant property with plenty to keep you stimulated. See More

Love love love this place!!! The Holly Farm is a one of a kind location-- lush greenery, gorgeous trees, a beautiful rustic hacienda, nestled into the heart of ...the magical Carmel Valley, and the most wonderful, caring staff that you will find anywhere. There's magic in these oaks and enough residual love and laughter to last a lifetime.... See More

One of the best venues that I have ever photographed at! They take care of their couples so well, and keep the property looking stunning. Love the owners as well, so sweet! 5 stars for the Holly Farm!!

The Holly Farm is a magical place. We were so lucky to have been married here 11 years ago. Nothing but amazing memories of a perfect weekend. Can't say enough wonderful things about this venue and the family that owns it.

I am fortunate enough to have been a part of several weddings at The Holly Farm and have consistently been blown away by the beauty, warmth and joy that this intimate, love-filled space provides. It is my absolute favorite place to attend a wedding!

The Holly Farm is magical not only because of it's incredible physical landscape but because of the love, care, and attention to every single detail that the family pays to each special event. Go and feel the love.

The Holly Farm is a wonderfully beautiful, magical place that is owned by the sweetest, most accommodating family - the Moses's. I can't think of a better place to celebrate love, life, family, and friends!
