About The Meadowood

The Meadowood is a barn and farm wedding venue located in Bellville, Ohio. Situated on 50 acres of grounds, this beautifully bucolic renovated barn is owned and operated by Sarah and Cody Gerhardt. Featuring ties to the past, it also boasts modern features and luxurious conveniences that make it ideal for fairytale celebrations. Cocooned by nature, it is a secluded space that would surely appeal to couples planning a getaway wedding with their nearest and dearest.

Facilities and Capacity

For ceremonies, partners are sure to be enamored by the lawn space where vows may be exchanged in a romantic setting. Here, chairs can be arranged flanking the aisle as to-be-weds’ guests sit to watch the milestone unfold. An arch can be erected for the couple to stand at as rings are swapped before they are officially pronounced as newlyweds. With trees forming the backdrop, the photos of the first kiss as a married pair are sure to look stunning as the photographer preserves the moment. For the cocktail reception, the outdoor courtyard-style space with a large fireplace is available to make use of. Alternatively, it could also function as somewhere to host the main reception. Around the rest of the property, everyone can pose for photos as the atmosphere is soaked up by all.

Inside the main barn, the festivities may continue as cuisine is served, beverages are poured, and the good times roll on. A rustic function area, it comes alive with string lights and the sound of laughter from the wedding party as the evening progresses. Serving stations may be set up here so that invitees can savor an array of delectable delights, while the place can be decorated accordingly. What’s more, the barn may be used for those keen on hosting an indoor ceremony. Overall, the capacity of The Meadowood is for approximately 175 guests.

Services Offered

Get-ready rooms are available to make use of, and these would surely be appreciated by those guests who want to prepare on site. Outside vendors are welcome at The Meadowood, and an event planner can help with bringing some of the many details together. Various decorative items, venue enhancements, and furniture may also be supplied so that a complete experience can be provided for all.

History

Originally constructed in the early 19th century, this property was a functional farm for a century-and-a-half. Ultimately, it was revamped in the 1970s by the Bissmans before Sarah and Cody took over the property. Since then, they have aimed to ensure that The Meadowood continues to be somewhere couples can happily tie the knot in style.

    Couldn’t have asked for a better venue

    First off, the meadowood is absolutely gorgeous and you could not ask for a better outdoor venue. Second, Sarah and Cody are fantastic and so helpful by answering all my questions beforehand, providing me with a list of vendors who were great and had worked with the venue before, and were so helpful in setting up and tearing down for the wedding. If you choose to go with them (which you totally should) you will not be disappointed!!

    Perfect venue

    Not only is this the most beautiful venue I’ve ever seen but the owners, Sarah and Cody, were the absolute best! They really went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day was flawless! I couldn’t recommend this venue enough, they truly made my day perfect. And this venue was so naturally beautiful, all of my guest were in awe.
