Here’s some helpful guest info prior to your arrival.

  • Plan to attend an outdoor ceremony, weather permitting. We suggest shoes comfortable for walking in gravel, some uneven areas around the grounds & dancing!

  • Park in designated gravel areas only; no grass parking allowed. Gravel parking is one car per bumper block . There are 2 handicapped parking spots & the opportunity for passenger drop-off at the back of the gathering barn. We customarily have 1-2 staff, depending on size of event, overseeing parking to be sure guests are utilizing all available spots & answer any questions about drop-offs.

  • Smoking is not allowed in the barn or on the covered porch areas (this includes vaping/e-cigarettes). Smoking is only permitted in marked designated area at back of the gathering barn & all smoking waste/litter must be properly disposed of in receptacle in that area. Hope’s Way does not permit smoking marijuana on its private property.

  • Alcohol is through the bartending service only. No self-serve permitted during the event.

  • There will be at least one staff member present on-site the entire event day, helping ensure all guests have a safe & enjoyable time on the property. They’re present to answer questions, tidy restrooms, ensure proper usage of venue, follow venue guidelines & monitor guest safety throughout the event.

  • Only service animals as defined under the ADA are permitted for a guest the entire event & must be under that guest’s control at all times. Emotional support, therapy, comfort, or other companion animals are not considered service animals under the ADA, as they are not trained in the same manner as ADA animals.
