Exceeded all expectations
My husband and I had the first wedding of the 2019 season at Hope Glen Farm (4/19/19). Our wedding day was hands down the best day of our lives. The venue was amazing because you could decorate as much or as little as you want and is still down right gorgeous. Initially we thought we could plan and run the whole day ourselves (with help from family), but we ended up hiring Eryka with her Bridal Bliss day of coordination package...my only regret was taking so long to finally make the decision to hire her! She did an amazing job decorating, keeping us on schedule, and packing up afterwards. This package also gave us access to the venue's inventory of decoration which took a lot of stress and hauling out of our big day. Furthermore, I could count on her to be the bossy one in regards to the timeline and flow and not worry about being the "bridezilla". Thankfully, she saved the day when we almost missed our sunset photos due to extra unplanned speeches during the dinner. I had a handful of guests rave that it's been the best wedding and venue they've every attended! They were pleased with the atmosphere, clean bathrooms, and everyone loved the tree house tour!Sent on 04/23/2019

Words cannot even describe how beautiful Hope Glen Farm was for our wedding. The owners are extremely helpful and try to make the perfect experience for all of their couples. It was incredibly convenient to have the ceremony and reception all right there. Our guests kept complimenting us on the beauty and ease of it. Not to mention staying in the treehouse was a dream come true.Sent on 09/11/2019

I am the bride and absolutely loved everything about this venue. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful in making sure my fiancé and I were prepared for our wedding day. Eryka provided us with a list of preferred vendors which was so helpful as we ended up using some of them and what a difference it makes to have vendors who collaborate and know what the venue is like. The venue itself is stunning: it's lush and green, has so many places for photo ops, and far enough away from the highway/Cities that you can't really hear traffic. In addition, the venue is really inclusive! You get long wooden dining tables, chiavari chairs, cute signs, and blackboard doors just to name a few of the things that come with booking them. I hardly had to buy other decorations/rent items! 100% I would totally recommend anyone to use Hope Glen as their venue.Sent on 09/11/2019
Historic Hope Glen is a beautiful setting for your rustic outdoor wedding. Not only that, but the staff is reliable, warm kind, and ethical, and give you excellent value. There also isn't a problem with inclement weather. Their beautiful pavilion will accommodate you as well.
Everything about Hope Glen Farm is beautiful! It's such an easy location for a photographer to find fantastic photo spots. The owners of the Farm are wonderful people and so incredibly easy to work with too!
Historic Hope Glen Farm is one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL farm venues in the twin cities area. Not only do they have a truly amazing space for couples to utilize and personalize the way they need, they are also VERY flexible to work with. Michael and Paula have a true grace and understanding of what brides need on their wedding day and are able to offer the absolute BEST to every single client that walks onto their property. Simply Elegant has the pleasure of working with them often and our whole staff gets SO EXCITED when we are able to be a part of the perfection that is Hope Glen Farm!
