I'm hoping for an outdoor wedding reception for appx 150 guests in late September or early October. Does anyone have any suggestions for farm, orchard or barn rentals in the area?
I've come across an apple orchard that's available for special events but they have their own caterer I would have to use. I'm sure the food would be great but I have a caterer in mind that I would prefer to use.

Any thoughts or help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The Barn in Hobart is probably the only event location in NWI that fits your criteria ... in fact, it's most likely the place you've already contacted.

NWI has a wealth of indoor banquet facilities - but outdoor? Few and far between.

I know theres not much... But this is what I can recommend since my cousin had the same problem as you. She put an ad in the local papers stating she wanted a barn or farm setting for her wedding/reception and that she was willing to pay for the use of it. She got multiple calls from different Farmers willing to let her use their Farm. The one she eventually chose was BEAUTIFUL. And the family was extremely nice. And they didnt even charge.

I am also trying to plan a early October outdoor wedding where i would like to use my own caterer. I have looked somewhat into county line orchard. Does anyone have any other ideas on any parks or gardens of any sort that would be pretty and willing to accommodate 150 people?

Did you try the Lake County Fairgrounds in Crown Point? or Lemon Lake grounds in Cedar Lake? Where do you live?
