Wedding Inspiration: Foodie Weddings

When you book a wedding at The Barn, your dinner is included in your budget. Our food is always killer. Our caterer, Blue Willow Catering, is happy to make just about anything you could dream up! They do everything from casual buffets to high-service plated dinners and incredible hors d'ouevres. Our cake vendor, Kneading Hands Bakery, not only makes gorgeous cakes, but they also make some of the most delicious desserts around. 

We LOVE it when our couples get creative with their menus. We love dinners that tie into the couple's heritage (like Kelsey + Gueorgui's amazing Bulgarian dishes or Michelle + Chad's dinner that combined both Latin and Southern foods). We also love fun food bars, whether it's a mashed potato station on the lawn during your cocktail hour or a gorgeous dessert bar. Think of your wedding food as another detail (an edible, really delicious detail). The more thought you put into your menu, the more memorable it will be for your guests! A few ideas for menu options that tell a bit of your story: what you ate on your first date together, breakfast for dinner if you're brunch-obsessed, or anything that celebrates your heritage (a Southern buffet, a Mexican feast, etc.). Here are some sweet and savory ideas that are sure to appeal to your inner foodie! (P.S. Grab a snack before you go any further. ;)
