Our Thoughts

Looking for a true hidden gem that will capture your heart and bring your dream wedding to life? We've found a beyond gorgeous private estate wedding venue in Selbyville, DE that you're going to fall head over heels for! This beautiful and elegant venue is peacefully nestled on a 100-acre private estate. The location is incredible with the beautiful Delaware and Maryland beaches, Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island & Ocean City are just a short, 10-minute drive away.

We are so impressed with the sweeping picturesque views this venue has, their beautifully manicured property, awe-inspiring barn, serene courtyards & the exquisite natural backdrop of the lake. We think Smokey Hollow Venue is the ideal “blank canvas” to create a truly dreamy wedding!

Let’s Get Started Exploring this Beautiful Venue

in Selbyville, Delaware!


The Barn

The Barn Venue is a wonderful combination of rustic chic & timeless elegance. The barn is very spacious, with 4,900 sq. ft. made of natural white washed timber. It's absolutely stunning inside! There are six large crystal chandeliers shining brightly, adding a little sparkle & elegance to your décor. Bringing in a bit of that southern charm, the walls are finished with brick and wood accents offering a timeworn patina. Stained glass windows & mirrors invite fun colors to dance with the sunshine inside. Authentic barn doors slide open to the adjacent patio & spacious field, allowing for ceremonies, cocktail parties, yard games or the addition of a tent.

The Lake

Something about a lake as your backdrop is just magical and romantic. The lake is the perfect location for a spring, summer or fall ceremony. Select from one of their ceremony arch’s & dress it up with your favorite floral arrangements or fabric, to create an atmosphere & design that is unique to you and your wedding ceremony vision!
