We are Kate and Adam Walton, owners of Hazelwood Weddings. Our dream of building a wedding venue began when we were married at Adam’s parents’ property in September of 2010. But the true vision of what we wanted to create was ignited after finding this beautiful slice of land we lovingly call Hazelwood. So, we built a cottage in the trees on the property— where we live with our son, River, and two kitties— and got to work on building Hazelwood Weddings.

When searching for the perfect venue for our wedding ten years ago, we noticed that all of the venues we visited began to blend together without distinction. After our tours, we needed a spreadsheet to keep track of all of the extra fees and required add-ons, putting the venue out of our budget. With Hazelwood, we immediately knew we had to do things differently. First, we had to build a modern, sophisticated, timeless, and fully climate-controlled venue tucked away in nature. Next, the way we structured our inclusions and pricing had to be an up-front, all-in-one price with no hidden fees, insuring there would be no guesswork.

Everything we do at Hazelwood is done with love and excellence in mind. Explore all of our services, furniture, and venue amenities that are included in your investment here. We’d love to meet you and share our vision so we can help paint the picture of your dream wedding day!


About Us


We believe natural beauty and modern sophistication can live in the same space. We believe rural is not synonymous with rustic, and a wedding & event venue in the countryside does not have to be in a barn.

At Hazelwood proudly welcomes couples
of all genders, sexualities, and races. 

Hazelwood is simply amazing! This venue was the first and only venue that we looked at before we decided to book. Kate and Adam are genuine people who are constantly striving to make their space special, unique, and better for their next event! Hazelwood is worth the investment for your wedding or any other event.   - Chantelle + Drew

kind words

The Hazelwood venue is nestled on 18 acres of private land including a wall of trees, an open field, and meditation trails that create endless photo ops. Our brand new, modern, and distinctive venue stands out from the rest.

As you near the top of the shaded driveway, the view will immediately open up and you'll be treated with views of the bright, newly constructed, fully climate-controlled venue, gently rolling field, and lush line of trees.

While here, you will feel completely private on our quiet, peaceful land, but Hazelwood is conveniently located only 15 minutes from Hanover, PA, 20 minutes from Historic Gettysburg, PA, 30 minutes from York, PA, and 1 hour and 20 minutes from Baltimore, Maryland. In the surrounding area, you will find many restaurants, several major hotel chains, and Airbnbs, so you will be close to modern amenities at all times.
