Weddings at the holly hill inn

Southern Charm for a Memorable Day

Thank you for your interest in Holly Hill Inn for your upcoming wedding! We welcome the opportunity to be of service on such a special occasion and want to share the following information about our beautiful restaurant.
First of all, we specialize in late morning and early afternoon weddings.  Our availability for evening weddings and receptions is limited and determined by the anticipated level of business on and around the date requested.
We have also learned over the years that the setup and access required for nuptial events usually require closing the restaurant to the public for the entire day, especially when an evening reception is planned.  Therefore, your event may be subject to a food and beverage minimum of $2,500 for a daytime function (which concludes by 4 p.m.) or $10,000 for an evening function.
Our maximum inside seating capacity is 125 guests. Outdoor covered seating for 30 is available on the front porch. The side yard can accommodate a 20-by-40-foot tent for up to 60 guests.  The front lawn can accommodate a 40-by-80 foot tent for up to 200 guests.  These numbers will vary according to the type of menu and meal service selected for your event.
Holly Hill Inn always features the best of seasonal cuisine based on our wonderful local ingredients.  Our culinary team, led by Chef de cuisine Tyler McNabb, will work from your ideas to compose a menu especially for you. We have a full liquor license and can offer any combination of beer, wine and spirits, including a signature cocktail for your special day.
So that we may focus on delivering the level of food and service you expect from Holly Hill Inn, we encourage you to consider the services of a wedding coordinator to assist with the reception itself. 
Your wedding may require the rental of additional serving pieces, dishware, glassware, silverware, tables, chairs, etc.  Large groups may also want to consider portable lavatories as we only have three public restrooms available.  These costs will be passed on to you or billed directly from the rental company.  Our preferred rental company is Bryant’s Rent-All in Lexington. 
Please call events manager Donna Hecker at 859-846-4732 for more information or email us.
