Your Wedding, Reimagined

Our in-house amenities and staff make planning a highly personalized wedding easier than ever.  We offer an elevated food program complete with an executive chef, top-tier bar packages, and florist. Our staff of on-site planners, coordinators, and designers are also here to bring the wedding  you’ve been dreaming of to life. 


Our All-Inclusive Experience

Instead of signing contracts with multiple vendors, Etre Farms offers everything you need in one convenient place. Our team's goal is to make your wedding appear as if you planned it all yourself - but in reality, you can be as involved in the process as your time permits.

  • Cigar Bar - Articles

  • Flowers - Berries & Blooms

  • Decor, Furnishings & Design

We aren't the typical caterer. We believe food is an expression of who you are and how it's presented. If your looking for the old cafeteria buffet style, will that's not us.  


Chef DJ has brought us into the high-technology world of cooking. He is creating a kitchen most restaurants can only dream of. You will be amazed at his abilities to bring 300 elevated hot entree's to your guests at once. 

The beauty of seated dinners and plated meals is that couples are looking to take that concept to the next level and introduce this fine dinning to their guests. We see every dinner, set up as more of a unique experience, instead of a typical three-course meal. We expose guests to various elegant food options and on occasion are able to present a risk food that guests have never had the opportunity or occasion to try on their own.  We want to bring back life to wedding reception food as more of a unique fine dinning wedding reception experience. We provide duo entrees along with vegetarian and gluten-free options as alternatives for those guests on special diets.

Articles - Cigar Bar

Are you ready for the ultimate cigar and lounge experience? 


We are ecstatic to Introduce Etre Farm’s newest addition: Articles Cigar Bar. 

From the moment you take your first step into the lounge, you can expect only the best in terms of the atmosphere, sophistication, and a refined cigar selection. We believe that a fine cigar is a cherry on top of a perfect evening, and there is

no better place to do this than at Articles. With wall-to-floor artwork, televisions, and novels, you can kick back, unwind, and connect in our elevated lounge designed with sophistication and style in mind. 

We pride ourselves on serving the finest selection of cigars and believe that every day is a celebration. Indeed, if this past year has taught us anything, it is that every day is a day to be celebrated. So don’t wait for a “special” occasion to pop the bubbly or smoke your favorite cigar. 

If you need further persuasion, expert researchers at theUniversity of Michigan studying the effect of smoking on the human brain have shown that cigar smoke heightens the brain’s natural system of chemicals called endogenous opioids. These chemicals play a role in suppressing painful sensations, elevating positive emotions, and creating a sense of reward. 


Proof that a fine cigar can help you to take a step back from the stressors of life. 

There is no better feeling than the feeling you get when you enter a sophisticated lounge with  sophisticated company, but the proof is in the pudding, as they say. The best way to find out is to check out Articles firsthand. Grab a few friends and head our way. Consult our expert staff and take a look at our selection.  We are confident that you will want to return time after time. 


We look forward to serving you.

Spirits + Soul

Introducing Spirits & Soul - a liquor lounge that offers an elevated escape from reality. 


Rise Above The Average

Will you have yours over ice? Or neat…the old fashioned way?


Spirits & Soul is more than a bar - it’s an upscale liquor lounge that caters to anyone who appreciates a strong drink with a smooth finish. It’s the kind of place that encourages you to leave your cares at the door, set your inhibitions aside, and indulge in some of the finest spirits that the world has to offer. 


Located in our upper mezzanine, this luxurious yet laidback 



space has a fresh, refined atmosphere that is apparent from the moment you enter. Soaring ceilings, glittering chandeliers, and lustrous textiles further enhance this liquor lounge’s exceptional ambiance. 


Several separated seating areas allow you to either congregate with close friends or follow wherever the conversation takes you. You’ve been warned - it’s easy to lose yourself in the plush upholstery, especially when there’s a drink in your hand. 


Reach For The Top Shelf

Will you opt for an old favorite? Or decide to live a little? 


Along with breathtaking ambiance, we also offer top shelf liquors that range from cherished classics to upscale selections like Louis XIII Cognac. If you aren’t sure what’s your flavor - or have no idea where to begin - the experts behind the bar will be happy to help you discover something perfect for your palate. 


If you’ve been waiting for a chance to indulge, Spirits & Soul is the place to do so. With an array of decadent spirits to choose from, there’s sure to be a pour that speaks to your sensibilities and creates the kind of night you’ll remember forever.  


Become The Talk Of The Town

Every occasion calls for a place just like this. 


Spirits & Soul is available for private gatherings of up to ___ people. Please inquire for more information about how to reserve this space for an upcoming party or event.  

Berries & Blooms

Designing with a Passion

We have a vision and passion for floral artistry that goes beyond just duplicating a Pinterest image. We strive to turn your wedding into an event that will be admired and cherished for years to come.

Our experienced professional staff works with our in-house designer to create the personal and event pieces you’re dreaming of.


Our team can guide you towards a variety of different arrangements and are able to source flowers in the world. 


"We are the artisans that fabricate your dreams into reality."

We believe every couple is unique. They each have their own vision and personality they want to showcase through florals.

Many couples look to us for floral budget, this can be hard to determine. Floral visions are as unique as each of our couples. Because of this, every wedding floral budget is unique.

Designers ask, How do you envision the event? What style inspires you? Are you drawn to more greenery? Do you have a favorite flower? Do you have an inspiration board to show us what you are more drawn to? 

Again, these questions help us to allocate your budget accordingly to your must-haves.

As a general rule of thumb, 15-20% of overall wedding budget should be reserved for florals.

"We create personalized weddings for every couple's unique style."
 What We Do
Our team of designers and craftsman can create custom pieces paired with our extensive furniture and décor catalog to create beautiful settings and table-scapes for every  vision.
In this catalog we feature pieces that can bring life to your event. Every piece is curated knowing we can make dreams come true.
