Nestled in the rolling countryside of Frederick, MD is the Holly Hills Country Club. Rich with tradition and class, the country club offers its clients ample indoor and outdoor options for events. This styled shoot, photographed by NikoBella Photography, LLC, sought to spotlight some of those options while honoring the lushness of the landscape and venue alike. To do so, the vision board highlighted dark, rich colors of navy blue and emerald green and made use of lavish velvet linens. Notes of acrylic, white diamonds, blush blooms, and gold skeleton leaves throughout balanced the mood and added a touch of softness.

While guests traditionally set up their ceremony facing the mountains, the vendors instead made use of the stunningly grand white columns and balcony, covering them in greenery and blush and cream blooms. Similarly, the reception remained in the outdoor space, featuring the brick patio and covered porch for dinner and dancing. Although clients often use the indoor ballroom, this option allows guests to enjoy the mountainous backdrop and sunset for several hours.

The night finished with a hot cocoa and blanket bar around the venue’s fire pit, allowing the couple and guests to cozy up to their loved ones – a perfect end to the love story!
