CLEVELAND — For many couples trying to plan a wedding during a pandemic, there’s lots to worry about, and the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Hausa of Cool, Ohio’s first pop-up wedding event company, are teaming up to ease the stress. All couples have to do is just show up and say "I do."

There are currently six dates available for pop-up weddings at Happy Days Lodge and Hines Hill Campus this summer: June 20 and 27, July 4 and 18, Aug. 22 and 29.

The $1,800 package includes the following:

  • the venue, completed styled and decorated for a beautiful 45-minute ceremony
  • a photographer and 50 edited photos in a digital album.
  • a bridal bouquet and boutonniere
  • seating six feet apartment to accommodate social distancing
  • champagne
  • wedding cake to take home

“Many of our couples’ love stories have roots in CVNP,” said Lindsay Regan, Senior Director of Business Development at the Conservancy. “Our hearts are breaking with our couples who have had to change their wedding plans. By partnering with Haus of Cool, we can offer an option for couples to have a beautiful wedding in the park this year without having to stress about any of the details.”

Couples only have to worry about showing up. Haus of Cool handles the set-up and take down. The first ceremony begins at noon, with ample time between each ceremony to allow staff to thoroughly disinfect each location.

"The partnership with the Conservancy is a dream come true – not just for the Haus of Cool, but for our great state,” says Kattie Cool, founder of Haus of Cool. “Creating something so beautiful out of a tragedy like COVID-19 and being able to provide this to so many, well, it's as close to true joy as one can get!"

Due to the coronavirus, weddings will be limited to 10 guests.
