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.
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.
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.

Flexible with plans A through C
Beautiful woodsy setting with a gorgeous barn and outdoor space. We had to reschedule once and drastically change our plans due to COVID and they were responsive and understanding through out the whole thing. Though our wedding was not our original plan, it was still beautiful and they made our new, intimate wedding plans easy and stress free. We are extremely lucky we had such great people to work with and would recommend them to anybody looking for a venue!

Even Our Guests Were Raving About The Meadowood
The Meadowood was absolutely perfect for our special day. Sarah and Cody were pleasant to work with. All of our questions were answered the day we toured the venue and signed our contract, and we had no problems getting additional questions answered as they came up during our planning process. The Meadowood is absolutely beautiful. They have a selection of rustic decor available on site to be used on the day of your event. This freed up extra money in our budget that we could allocate elsewhere to make our day even more special. Our guests were raving about how gorgeous this venue is and couldn't believe we found such a gem hidden back in the woods. If you are looking for a romantic or rustic venue with plenty of outdoor elements for beautiful photo and ceremony backdrops, look no further. We are completely satisfied with our Meadowood experience and will highly recommend them to anyone we know looking for their own special place to celebrate their union.Sent on 08/29/2020
