Why is The Grove at Holts Landing State Park the ideal place for your wedding? This unique park offers everything you could ever want for a destination wedding—from a beautiful ceremony setting to a fun getaway for your bridal party and guests.

A beloved location, Holts Landing offers an array of amazing ceremony options. Say your vows under a canopy of trees, then enjoy an elegant candlelit reception under the stars, or perhaps a rustic family picnic. Or if you’ve always dreamt of a sunset wedding on the water, Holts Landing offers sublime bay views at twilight.



Of course, the appeal of a destination wedding weekend isn’t just the big day—it’s the entire vacation, and the special time spent getting away from it all with your loved ones. Here, too, Holts Landing has you covered.

You’ll be stunned by the natural beauty of the bay, wetlands and natural wildlife—all of which provide unforgettable backdrops for ceremony and reception photos.



When you’ve got downtime, an extensive selection of activities at Holts Landing and the nearby Indian River Marina—including fishing, biking, hiking, surfing, camping, sailing, swimming, paddling and boating—will keep you and your guests gloriously busy. Prefer to spend time strolling hand-in-hand with your new spouse? Take a hike through the forests at Holts Landing, or amble along miles of ocean shoreline at Delaware Seashore and Fenwick Island state parks.

For accommodations, the waterfront cottages at the Indian River Marina—located only minutes from Holts Landing—are the perfect place to stay all wedding weekend long. Each two-bedroom cottage features sleeping arrangements for up to six people: One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, another bedroom has two twin-sized beds, and a stylish loft has an extra queen-sized bed. Just two cottages can accommodate most bridal parties. Each cottage is equipped with a kitchen, and there is also easy access to restaurants—ranging from casual to fine-dining—for your rehearsal dinner or simply a night out.

With its gorgeous settings, comfortable accommodations and a wide range of activities, The Grove at Holts Landing State Park offers everything you and your guests could want from a wedding: joy throughout every aspect of your stay, and memories that will last a lifetime.
