Check Out What People are Saying About Us
Absolutely enjoyed everything Holland Marsh Wineries had to offer as a wedding ceremony and reception venue. The atmosphere the clubhouse and the grounds created was exactly what we were looking for - an intimate close experience which matched our taste when making the selection to book our wedding. The two levels to the space and balcony overlooking the lower level created special moments for us : our big entrance down the steps, being able to toss the bouquet over the balcony, great photos overlooking our first dance and also being able to use the space above for a candy bar and photo booth service so everything felt spaced out appropriately and out of the way until guests were ready to enjoy these features. Linnea, Emily and all the staff we encountered were fantastic and being a newbie to anything in terms of wedding planning being able to ask 99 questions and get all avenues covered in the response made us feel confident leading to our big day. Halloween weather has been quite chilly from all the years i remember however the fall day provided the ambiance we wanted for our outdoor ceremony. We opted for the Fire place which burned all night - all my guests LOVED having this and was a nice touch. Although HMW is not responsible for any decor set up Linnea supplied us with a Day of Doer coordinator contact who was amazing and familiar with the space definitely thankful for being provided that connection. If we could relive our day EXACTLY how it all played out we would in a heart beat.

Our overall experience with The Holland Marsh Wineries was first class. Their assistance, expertise and patience with us throughout our year and half of planning was nothing short of exceptional. Highly recommended venue! - Sarah
Holland Marsh is a stunning venue, all our wedding guests loved it! The winery is family owned and everyone is extremely friendly. All of our questions were answered by email or by phone fairly quickly. Just make sure you speak with Linnea (the event consultant). The other staff is extremely nice and try to be helpful but Linnea will be able to give you the correct responses to all your questions. There was some confusion about certain details when we were planning, due to the fact that we spoke with other staff when Linnea was not available. However, throughout the wedding day, Linnea was on site and continued to answer questions, and assist with anything we needed. The venue is a little pricey but it is worth it for the experience that you get (cost also includes DJ service). They do try to be accommodating and flexible, however, they do have some restrictions. For example, no alcoholic shots are served as part of their Open Bar service, however, if you bring your own shot glasses, alcohol, and have a family member/ bridal party member pour the shots, they will allow you to have one signature shot for each guest upon arrive.

We had our wedding at Holland Marsh Winery on October 3rd, 2015. Our guests complimented the venue the whole night and even when we saw them afterwards. It was great to have the ceremony, photos and reception all in one beautifully rustic venue!
Linnea Whitcroft was extremely helpful in the preparation of set up and was quick to respond with any questions I had.
We couldn't have asked for a better venue!!!

The outdoor location is amazing for ceremonies and for photos, and the indoor clubhouse was equally beautiful for the reception! The staff were very helpful and very flexible in helping us to accommodate our large wedding guestlist. The wine is also fantastic! - Samantha

"Best winery! We will be back." - Larisa & Ascuot Welkoujou, Toronto, Ontario
Holland Marsh Wineries was a beautiful location for our romantic and rustic outdoor ceremony. We were worried it would rain that day - the setup was outside but staff was ready to accommodate an inside wedding on the spot if needed. Happily, it didn't rain. We went with O'Malleys for catering and opted for hors'deuvres during cocktail service which I'm happy we chose that. The food was plentiful and delicious, staff from the winery and the caterer were pleasant and professional. The venue is absolutely stunning inside. The wood is beautiful and you don't need to do too much inside because it is gorgeous as is. We had 100 guests and plenty of space for dancing. Linnea is very professional and answered all of my questions and concerns very quickly. She is great to work with! The outside photo opportunities are so beautiful and I am so happy that we chose to Holland Marsh Wineries for both the ceremony and the reception. Gorgeous.
"It was an adventure to get here---it was well worth it! Hope to come back." - Patricia & Joseph McKay, Saratoga, New York

Your venue is stunning and it was the perfect spot for our celebration. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and we appreciate everything you did for us throughout the year. We will see you soon when we come to buy some more of your delicious wine." - Love Sara & Jay Lee Wedding October 6th 2012
Our wedding was a perfect day considering that we planned for an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and it poured rain right before. The Holland Marsh team (Linnea and crew) were able to sort out our back up plan almost seamlessly. They pieced together all our decor elements and table arrangements without impacting our guest at all. People at our wedding we surprised that we hadn't planned for an indoor because it was executed perfectly. The bar service was fast and efficient and our guests were greeted by a friendly and fun server. He was terrific. All our requests planning up to the wedding were so easy to roll out because the HMW team are so accommodating and really focus on making you happy and going beyond to satisfy their clients. We loved every moment of our wedding and its because the winery provides the best service. Thanks Holland Marsh Winery! - Sarah
Craig and I both loved this venue! We had 200 guests but because you are able to seat both the ground floor and the mezzanine, it really creates an intimate atmosphere. A lot of my guests seated in the mezzanine commented on how they enjoyed being able to look over the railing during the games and speeches. It was a different experience that said, much different than being seated 10 tables away with no line of sight to the bride and groom! The surrounding area of the venue is filled with different backdrops for amazing photos too! The staff at the venue were helpful from day one to the end. I highly recommend this venue if you're looking for a rustic-chic wedding!
We loved that we chose to have our wedding at The Holland Marsh Winery. Linnea was very helpful and answered any questions that we had. She was also very flexible with our ideas for the ceremony and they even permitted our dog to be in our ceremony. We also wanted to arrange to have more wine available throughout dinner, in addition to the standard one white, one red, and they were able to accommodate that for us. Our guests raved about how lovely the venue was and we couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else!
"We are writing to thank you for helping to make our wedding such a memorable event. The location was beautiful. A number of our guests commented on your lovely facility. The photos with the background of the vineyard are stunning. Your staff was very pleasant and helpful. Thank you again for a great day!" - Mary Vallee and Frank Gerrits
"Wonderful wine, wonderful atmosphere!" - Ron & Sue Mitchell, King City, Ontario

Holland Marsh is a beautiful venue for a wedding or other events. It's private and the view and grounds are gorgeous. We were very happy with our wedding day! The staff was incredible and a pleasure to deal with. We received timely responses to our inquiries and they accommodated all our requests. Our guests raved about the grounds and reception hall and loved the wine- and the bartenders :). We had roughly 110 at our wedding and were able to fit everyone on the main floor. We tried to keep our numbers around there so we didn't have to use the balcony for extra seating as we felt guests might feel separated from the festivities. We were lucky to have a great day with no rain (which was good because the alternative spot for the ceremony is the reception hall). Since we had fabulous weather we were able to utilize the back patio section and fireplace, which were amazing features! Although a bit pricey of a venue, we felt it was worth it for our special day. Our DJ, Teresa from Almost Famouz, was fantastic! Everyone loved her music, from the young to our older guests. We had our wedding catered by O'malley's, which we were happy with. The main meals were tasty and were exactly what we had on our tasting trial date. We didn't see the desserts ahead of time and our guests commented that there wasn't many and they went fast. Other than that, we were extremely happy with how everything turned out! Beautiful venue, lovely atmosphere and fantastic staff!
All the staff (especially Linnea) at Holland Marsh were absolutely fantastic to work with and are all so accommodating. It was sooooooooo hot outside but that didn't stop anyone from having a wonderful time. One of the main reasons why we chose Holland Marsh was because it has everything on site - parking, ceremony, outdoor space, reception, open bar and AWESOME places for photos. It was the best night of our lives and all of our guests still rave about how much fun and how beautiful everything was months later. The ceremony space and reception space looked so beautiful and with all of Linnea's tips and tricks the day went on without any glitches. It was FANTASTIC! Everyone loved the wine and I know a lot of people were buying some on their own :)
