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.

Beautiful Place For A Perfect Wedding
Cody and Sarah are so awesome, very helpful and very professional. If i had any questions they responded to emails quickly. Being the biggest day of my life they were able to make wedding decisions so much easier than i ever thought was possible. We were able to have our outdoor wedding and reception in one place which is great. The venue has plenty of room inside and out . A bunch of great photographic opportunities. My family said its the most beautiful outdoor venue they have ever seen. It truly was my dream wedding, we can not thank them enough for everything!Sent on 09/29/2019

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!!Sent on 10/14/2019
