Let's take a moment to talk about VALUE.  Our caterers provide a level of service worthy of your investment. Your wedding is not about one day.  It is about the entire journey, and the memories that last a lifetime. Our suggested vendors are like family to us. They are with you throughout the planning process, the day-of, set up, and clean up.  We are able to streamline your vendor search, leading you to wedding professionals who will provide the level of service expected at The Covered Bridge Inn.   When we see a vendor who is truly GREAT, and consistently provides our clients with next level, flawless events, and unforgettable experiences, then they have earned their way on to this list.

In our experience, the DJ is one of the most important factors of your wedding day.  We can’t stress enough that a DJ who is not 100% committed to making this day be about YOU is not the right person.  The DJ’s we have listed are trusted souls, who will keep everyone dancing, smiling, and vibing. They will be part of your planning process, and build a sound and light experience that is a reflection of YOU and your guests.

Our venues can easily host a band, and we LOVE the sound of live music pouring out of a wedding reception.  The band will contact the team at Covered Bridge Inn to go over loading, unloading, power needs, and any other special requirements.

Rental Companies

We have 2 rental companies that we use regularly.  They are both equally priced and have wonderful service.  Keep in mind that the rental companies will need to provide labor on the wedding day to set up and break down ceremony chairs. The last 2 companies listed are for all the “extras”.

The traditional wedding cake is rare these days.  Modern couples want to offer guests some sweet options at the reception, as well as have the cake cutting moment.  Your caterer, SoDel Weddings, has a world renowned pastry chef, and Bethany Blues has mouth watering options as well.  If you’d like a little extra:

Hopkins Farm Creamery

Dachside Bakery

Event Planners

We do not require you to hire a wedding coordinator because of the planning tools that you receive with your booking at Covered Bridge, and the event management services offered by your caterer. However, we know - and completely agree- how valuable a good wedding planner can be. You’ll love these ladies:
