Facilities and Capacity Up to 300 guests can join couples on their special day at Glen Ellen Farms. Couples can wed on this venue’s expansive property, with one of the most popular wedding sites being the pond. Couples can exchange vows on a small circular stone patio overlooking the pond after the wedding party processes down the stone path between the rows of folding chairs set up neatly in the grass. Nearby, couples will discover a pergola structure built just in front of a stone wall. They can choose to have the wedding ceremony here for more space if they wish, with the wall as their backdrop. Tented receptions can be held on the farm in flexible locations, with the pond or manor house in the background. The classic white house makes a wonderful setting for reception backdrops or wedding portraits.

History This 1950s Greek Revival home was once inhabited by Lady Ellen Thompson, presumed ghostwriter of the romance novel, Lorna Doone. It was purchased by Ellen and her husband, Professor Herbert Thompson, in 1874. They purchased the manor from John Brown, who used discarded wooden railroad rails for the rafters and joists in building the house’s framing.

Glen Ellen Farm is gorgeous, meticulously maintained and well-run wedding venue. The owner Deb is wonderful from the first tour to all the detailed emails to acting as host on your special day. My husband and I visited other venues in the Frederick County area, but as soon as we walked on to this property, we were blown away. From the barn ruin area, beach to tent, every inch of this property is stunning. Deb works so hard to maintain a gorgeous location with details including fresh flowers, beautiful string lights and gorgeous farmhouse. Deb and her staff are attentive, caring and easy to work with. During our entire wedding experience, my husband and I felt that Deb was just as excited for our day as we were. If you are looking for your dream venue, look no further than Glen Ellen. Its beauty, care and management are truly unmatched!

Glen Ellen is in a word, stunning. The venue itself could not be more beautiful. Debbie, the owner, was an absolute delight to work with. So professional and kind. I would reccommend Glen Ellen to anyone!

There is only one word to describe Glen Ellen: breathtaking. We fell in love with the venue right away and booked on the spot. It has everything you need (bridal suite, cocktail hour patio, ceremony space, tented reception area) and for Maryland natives, we loved the country views and rustic charm it offered. It is rare to have a venue with chair and table options (that you actually love!) AND an amazing tent with string lights already attached. We didn't need to do much in terms of decor because GE really was a beauty all on its own. We cannot thank Debbie enough for her support through our planning process, taking the time to get us in touch with amazing vendors and answering all of our questions leading up to the big day!

Having my wedding at Glen Ellen Farm was a dream come true! The Venue is absolutely breathtaking and Debbie (the owner) was so helpful through the whole process! Let me first start with the Venue... every guest came up to me throughout the night going on and on about how beautiful every aspect of the wedding had been... from the ceremony looking over the pond to the cocktail hour in the rustic barn ruins to when the beautiful sunset just next to the reception tent and then to the fire pit later in the evening that people could cozy up next to if they were not hitting the dance floor! We felt like we were in our own private world the entire wedding day at Glen Ellen Farm which made us feel even more special! Debbie was especially wonderful throughout the whole planning process offering for us to stop by many times so we can brainstorm and create our vision for our wedding! I would also like to add that Debbie continues to pour into Glen Ellen Farm and make wonderful changes that upgrade the venue every time we visit it! It amazed me that she made it possible to still have beautiful flowers in bloom for our October Wedding! We loved every aspect of our Wedding at Glen Ellen Farm and would highly suggest it to anyone looking at this venue!

If you are a bride (or groom) that wants to customize your wedding however you want, Glen Ellen is your place. This place is gorgeous and non-exclusive. You can spend as little or as much as you want on your other vendors which can save you a lot of money. Debbie, the owner, is so accommodating. Be sure do reserve your spot quickly or you'll be sorry you missed the opportunity. Our guest still cannot stop telling us how beautiful everything was--all thanks to Debbie!

I was searching for a venue that would allow for my dogs to be part of our day. Glen Ellen is stunning and Debbie is so wonderful to work with! I did not have a wedding coordinator and the day still went smoothly and was perfect!

We are so in love with Glen Ellen - perfect venue, great preferred vendors, and we seriously want to get married here every weekend. I thought it was very affordable AND we can't wait to come back for a vow renewal down the line. Thank you to Debbie for being SO WONDERFUL.

Glen Ellen Farm is such a unique and beautiful venue! My husband and I married there in June and it was perfect. Everyone was commenting on how much they loved the property and how pretty everything was. All of the photos are so gorgeous with Glen Ellen Farm's beautiful scenery! Debbie is SUCH a sweetheart. She made Dave and I feel like guests in her home rather than clients purchasing services. She truly is a special person who wishes to share Glen Ellen Farm with anyone who appreciates its beauty like she does. HIGHLY recommend this venue. <3

The second I saw pictures of this venue I knew it was where I was going to celebrate the most special day in my life. Our first meeting with Debbie was fantastic & we were sold. The day of our wedding the weather didn't work out at the start so I was super bummed that I wasn't able to hold my cocktail hour in the barn ruins (the site that sold me on the venue) but the staff improvised & moved everyone in the tent. Thankfully the weather cleared up at dinner time & the guests were able to walk the property & enjoy the sites. Debbie has a BEAUTIFUL place - you will get the BEST pictures at this venue. I highly encourage you to go see it in person as you will fall in love with it . What Debbie has done to transform this place is simply amazing...and she continues to do improvements. HIGHLY recommend - its a hidden gem in Frederick County, Maryland.

Debbie made sure we had the wedding of our dreams. She puts such a thoughtful and heartfelt touch into every aspect of this property that any couple is lucky to have the chance to be married here. We got married October 15 and it was just the perfect day. She was responsive quickly through emails and very personable. We never felt like it was a business transaction, which is the vibe we got from other venues. Your photographer will also thank you for choosing this venue. The editing is easy with the beautiful mountains in the background and the fields of flowers and the pond next to barn ruins, which she turned into the perfect spot for a cocktail hour. We absolutely loved this place and recommend it to anyone and everyone! Alex and Amy Paradis
