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 vendors follow venue guidelines & monitor guest safety throughout the event.
