When Glamour and Outdoor Serenity Meet

The timing for Hope Farms debut as a wedding venue last week could not have been better. As lavish weddings with hundreds of guests are put on ice due to COVID-19, the hunt for more intimate wedding venues is on. The urban farm, part of Recipe for Success Foundation programming, now offers an off-beat setting for smaller affairs.

Recipe for Success founder Gracie Cavnar refers to the possibilities as “micro-weddings” or “tiny weddings.” In announcing the addition of wedding packages to the Hope Farm experience, Cavnar invited brides to join her and a handful of wedding providers for a “Bubbles & Brides” Instagram live event.

“We want to help take away the stress of suspended wedding plans,” she says. “With our easy Intimate Wedding Package, couples can go ahead and exchange vows with a dozen of their dearest bearing witness and have a big party later, when things have calmed down.”

Cavnar describes the Hope Farm wedding experience as one with “a dash of glam and gloss of pastoral serenity.”

Joining her in the program and touting their services and the attraction of a wedding in the farm setting were caterer Barbara McKnight of Culinaire, Elizabeth Whitehead of Your Butler’s Pantry, Courtney Paddock with Little Coterie, Ana Llovera with Socialite Americas, Southern Glazers Spirits & Wine, Jennifer Digges of Bevi Amo Prosecco and Brew, Jody Stevens with Jodycakes, Andrea de Gortari with the Bake Happening, and Jen McDonald with Jen McDonald Calligraphy.

Here is the plum for brides: Hope Farms offers a two-hour wedding package for $2,000. The package includes:

A press release on the wedding program notes, “The farm’s rustic boho Gathering Barn, Chef’s Garden, Field of Movement and Picnic Grove are now available for gatherings of up to 100 guests (depending on health guidelines).”
