Charming red barns and rolling fields are exactly what couples are looking for in their wedding reception scenery. Catarina and Lance wanted just that, and oh man, did they get it when they selected Meadow Brook Barn as their ceremony and reception site!
Their wedding day was a beautiful pre-fall Saturday that included blue skies, a slight breeze, and the perfect temperature. This was such a blessing because Cat and Lance selected a stunningly beautiful corner of Meadow Brook's property that features an arch to have their wedding ceremony. One of the highlights of Meadow Brook is we can easily provide ceremony coverage to the arch, gazebo and other spots on the property.
After the ceremony, guests had cocktails on the farm-themed patio and played lawn games while Cat and Lance took photos with their photographer, Kelli Rasler. As soon as cocktails were done, guests moved into the lower level of the barn to feast on dinner served by Sweazy Q Catering.
Every wedding has some traditional features ... a grand entrance to introduce the newlyweds, bridal party speeches and a first dance. Cat and Lance did all of these but they also had a great surprise for their guests: they waited until their wedding day to reveal how they met each other!
The officiant had a couple of jokes prior to revealing that Cat and Lance had met on PlentyOfFish.com. The guests loved the story, and Cat's Maid of Honor, Courtney, was a relieved that she didn't have to be the one to reveal this.
The guests of Cat and Lance's wedding were so fun and danced all night. We wrapped up the dancing portion of the evening with Piano Man by Billie Joel and because the night was such a beautiful September evening in Goshen, guests stayed and enjoyed a bonfire with the newlyweds.
