What is Cocktails and Conversation you might ask?
Cocktails and Conversation is a networking event for Happily Connected vendors to connect, chat and sip cocktails.
C&C is all about mixing business and pleasure and we encourage everyone to be themselves while building meaningful relationships with other professionals in the wedding industry. It’s important to Happily Connected to build a community of hard-working vendors that are willing to support each other and have fun while doing it!
We believe that this monthly event is one of the many reasons that makes Happily Connected different from other vendor directories. We strive to create a community of like-minded professionals and help to build each other’s businesses. Every Cocktails & Conversations event will take place at a different venue which allows them to showcase what they have to offer.
Our May Cocktails & Conversation networking event was at the stunning Drakewood Farm in Goodlettsville, TN.
The catering was provided by Crave Catering which included an awesome charcuterie spread and cookies by The Rolling Pin!
Drakewood Farms is an absolutely beautiful venue with a variety of different options for ceremonies and receptions. Not to mention it is an all inclusive package, so they basically do everything for you!
The first location is the woods. It’s the most popular ceremony site and it is nestled in a cedar grove that has the feeling of being deep in the forest, yet easily accessible to your guests and the reception pavilion. A paved stone surface embraces the natural feel. Whether you envision your wedding as a rustic enchanted forest, a whimsical bohemian ceremony, or an outdoor modern event we will customize your wedding site to be perfect place to exchange your vows. If you have imagined your wedding surrounded by nature with the sounds of birds and a warm breeze blowing through the trees this is your dream wedding location.
The second location is the “Love” Barn. It is 175 years old and original to the pre-civil war farm. The beautiful rustic barn is accented with chandeliers, lanterns, fairy lights, and soft draping though out. It is perfect for intimate ceremonies to larger groups. The soft -warm lighting creates a romantic setting for your barn ceremony and there is no worry about rainy weather. Your guest can go straight to the reception to enjoy food, drink and restrooms without ever going outside unless they choose. However, the 41 acre farm is full of wonderful places for photos and gathering so your guest will have a fun, relaxed place to help you celebrate your “best day ever”.
There is also the “I Do” barn which serves as a fantastic backdrop for photos!
Another invaluable feature of Drakewood Farm are the adorable bridal and groom suites!
