You've gotten engaged! Congratulations! Now what are your next steps?
1. Celebrate!! Bask in the moment and enjoy the fact that you will be marrying the love of your life. This is something that should be celebrated and enjoyed.
2. Sit down with your partner and set a budget. Having a realistic budget will help you establish a solid base for which all your planning can be done around.
3. Decide a date - or at least a ballpark. Sometimes the exact date you want isn't available with the venue you fall in love with. If you can be flexible with your date, you can have the best of both worlds. We happen to think the Barn at Bradstreet Farm is stunning in spring, summer or fall - so you can't go wrong if we are the right fit for you.
4. Prioritize things that are important to you as a couple. Need rich, organic farm to table food? Find your perfect caterer. Need the perfect blooms? Find your florist. Make sure that you and your partner make what you want in your wedding a priority.
5. Celebrate some more. This is such an amazing time! If you think the Barn at Bradstreet Farm may be your dream venue - please feel free to send us an email to schedule a discovery call. Congratulations on your engagement!

They say the way to your heart is through your stomach so that must be why so many of our clients just fall in love with Ryan Costigan and his Woodland Catering style! Cheers to another one of our amazing catering partners here at the Barn at Bradstreet Farm!
Ryan was raised on the north shore of Massachusetts with his 2 brothers. After receiving his 4-year college degree, Ryan went on to graduate from the Professional Chef Program at The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. He then went on to work in many Boston area restaurants. But it was a stint in 2007 and 08 as the Head Chef for Green Olive Catering that sparked his interest in catering and started him on a journey build Woodland Catering from the ground up.
The food at Woodland Catering is the culmination of years of working towards the understanding of technique and ingredients. The process included concepts that would separate Woodland Catering from its competitors. A focus on locally grown and processed goods was always the first necessary step. As this idea developed, the realization that this would be a hospitality company first and a food company second began reveal itself. This combination of great food made with local ingredients alongside stellar service and communication have been the building blocks guiding the progression of the business. These building blocks align perfectly with the philosophy that The Barn at Bradstreet Farm has adopted.
Today Ryan makes his home in Merrimac with his wife and four young boys. His goal now is to continue to build this business in his image. This includes fostering relationships with other local businesses that share similar values and philosophy. Our custom menus will align perfectly with your special day and will always project the imagery our clients want to convey. As we like to say: “We don’t make food for you. We create food with you.”
