I cannot say enough about Hope Glen Farm. The owners are incredibly kind and helpful, the venue is breathtaking, and it is impossible to not have a beautiful wedding there! They are constantly taking suggestions and adding new things to make the venue as comfortable, accessible and stunning as possible. From the time we booked until the day of our wedding, every single time we visited the farm there was a new improvement. There are a million reasons why we loved this venue, but here are a few of the top ones. The nature of the venue allows you to have a small intimate wedding or a large one like ours very seamlessly. They had enough seating to accommodate everyone and no one felt crowded. Once the dancing portion began, guests were able to be in the barn dancing, out on the patio, or sitting on the beautiful new deck. Everyone was still together, comfortable, and enjoying themselves. We also loved having our ceremony & reception all in one place because we did not have to worry about transportation between the two and we had more time for fun! It is beautiful at any time of year and with any amount of décor. Kathleen is the venue manager and when you meet with her she helps you tremendously with planning and organizing your timelines for the day, items that you may need them to set up (including table layouts, and where you would like arbors, etc.), and tips and tricks from past brides. When we arrived the morning of the wedding, the tables and chairs were all ready to go and any other heavy things were set up exactly where we had discussed. They even setup a platform for our musicians during the ceremony. Although the fee for the venue is not the lowest, it certainly evens itself out with all that they include and your freedom in booking your vendors. The cost to book the venue includes very beautiful and well-made tables and chairs to accommodate at least 300 (and they are constantly making more), air conditioning and heat in the pavilion and the barn, a large room with tons of mirrors and outlets for the bridal party to get ready in, hookups and a screen for slideshows, tons of small items such as tables and arbors for your use, and so much more. All of these things saved us tons of money on décor and made setting up and getting ready much easier to do. We also saved money by having the ability to bring in our own hair & makeup, photography, floral, dessert, and especially alcohol. They ask you to bring in bartenders from the Minnesota School of Bartending who are extremely professional and know the venue well ($15 an hour per bartender). They setup and totally handle the bar for you. We were able to buy our favorite beer and wine from wherever we wanted, which meant we could take advantage of deals and coupons! Whatever was left over we could take home. When we did the math, we were able to have an open bar for 300 people and spend less money than we would having a cash bar through an alcohol caterer that some venues require (you still have to pay the tax and gratuity on the cash bars). My husband and I look back on our wedding and we do not have a single complaint. Multiple guests told us how much fun they had and what a lovely place it was. It was a gorgeous day and the perfect venue for us. We were able to have open air for our vows to each other and comfortable covered areas for the dinner and dancing. It could not have been more perfect and that is mostly thanks for Hope Glen Farm!

We immediately fell in love with Hope Glen Farm! From the setting, to the venue, to the amazing people Michael and Paula are, we knew Hope Glen Farm was the place for our wedding. We were married on Good Friday (mid-April) knowing the weather could play a role in the ceremony. Regardless of the weather, we knew Michael, Paula, and the staff at Hope Glen would make sure everything went off without a hitch. Our ceremony was performed in the Pavilion with the dance held in the barn. Our guests were treated to a wonderful evening and we spent our first evening as husband and wife in the uniquely beautiful tree house. Hope Glen Farm is an amazing venue and operated by even more amazing people! Thank you so much, Michael and Paula for all your work to make Hope Glen such a wonderful place for us to begin our lives together!!
