For the couple that has decided they want an old fashioned country wedding without giving up all the beauty and class of a classic wedding, the Historic Hope Glen Farms is a great choice.
This newer venue is located in Cottage Grove Minnesota. http://hopeglenfarm.com The designers have clearly worked hard to preserve all the natural charm and feel of a country setting without the common challenges that this type of wedding can present.
The Bridal sweet, although un-viewable by me at the time, was also at the top of another barn style building. I was told by many that with vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light it was breathtakingly beautiful.
Again this is the front of the Dance hall Barn building.
Located across from the bridal sweet is an open ended mess hall complete with a stone fireplace and shabby chic hanging lights. Everything was very thoughtfully designed to capture that authentic country feel.
Although this picture didn’t do the ceremony justice, it was held in an open field, with a cute wooden bridge leading up to the ceremony area.
No country wedding is complete without a backyard barbecue, and this event center brought in fantastic chefs to accent the country feel without letting the food choices suffer. Best ‘vittles’ from here to the Mason Dixon line.
A cute accent was a small cocktail bar ordained with a ‘Lemonade stand’ look.
