Jane and Christian's Wedding

Our wedding was wonderful - very low key, with good food, and a lot of friend and family contributions to make the day really special. We did create a wedding website, and weddingmapper was very helpful in helping our guest find the somewhat remote ceremony and reception location. I would highly recommend Weddingmapper and all of our vendors!

Sweet Pea Catering
Solon, IA

I don't know if Sweet Pea typically caters weddings, but we know one of the owners, Sharon, and we couldn't have invisioned our wedding without her delicious food. Regina and Sharon made our apps for us (many commented that it was the best vegetarian spread they had ever had at a wedding), and they "ran the show" for the buffet and cutting/serving the apple pie (we had pie instead of cake). They did an excellent job coordinating with the folks who cooked our meal (The Pit), they set it all up beautifully, and they plated the pie and ice cream without a hitch.

The food was amazing! We had pulled pork, brisket, and portabello mushrooms, buns for sandwiches, cornbread, slaw, baked beans. Everyone was really impressed with the food, and we couldn't have been happier with the service, how everything was packaged, the attention to detail, etc.

The Schwab Barns are something out of a fairy book... absolutely amazing! Dick Scwhab was a wonderful "host" - very helpful in the weeks and days leading up to the event, and he added some once-in-a-lifetime touches to the day that really made it special. We were the last couple to use the original "event" barn - starting in 2009 a new, larger, and very impressive barn will host events. We held our ceremony at an amplitheatre behind the new barn. Gorgeous! Get your reservation in early (like years early)... I heard through the grapevine that we happened upon a slot only because of a cancellation.
