Brett and Meghan were the sweetest couple! They hosted their wedding at the Glen Ellen Farm, a beautiful garden venue located in the town of Ijamsville, within the rolling hills of Frederick County, Maryland, and just 55 minutes away from the DC metro area. Take a look at some of my favorites from their big day!

Romantic Garden Wedding

It was a very rainy day, but luckily the skies cleared out during the ceremony and long enough to last through the reception. The space was beautifully decorated by the talented Simply Gorgeous Events, making the venue look even more like a fairytale!

Meghan wore the loveliest bridal gown with the most beautiful details! She looked so stunning! The bridesmaids wore the prettiest dresses in sage green. On the other hand, Brett and his groomsmen wore dark teal green suits that didn’t disappoint.

Garden Wedding Venue | Glen Ellen Farm

Nestled in a glen between the rolling hills of Maryland’s countryside, the Glen Ellen Farm includes over 30 acres of pristine gardens, a spring-fed pond leading to a beautiful wildflower meadow, a historic property available to the family, offering a serene and romantic atmosphere to celebrate with family and friends.

This award-winning garden wedding venue has everything you could ask for! The Manor House, a 1850’s Greek Revival manor house that allows the couple and their families to relax and stay cozy while waiting for the ceremony. The Outdoor Ceremony Space, a beautiful garden ceremony site. The Barn Ruin, a rustic space perfect for cocktails and happy hour. And lastly, the Outdoor Reception Tent, a spacious outdoor tent with the most beautiful views for the reception.
