I Can’t Say Enough Positive Things
Where do I begin? Our experience planning our wedding at The French Meadow was incredible! From our very first email Janel was an angel sent to help a very stressed out bride (me) plan the wedding of our dreams! We had our ceremony in the Nord Tasting Room (small ceremony of 16 people total), and our reception in the Nord Social Hall (40 person dinner, 50-60 people for dancing). The entire team at The French Meadow went above and beyond for us time and time again! We were allowed to set up the decor the day before; the wonderful staff flipped the ceremony room after the ceremony to be a “quiet place to talk” room during the reception; we painstakingly created the reception dinner of our dreams with the help of the very talented Chef Beth (this should not be down-played: we asked for a six course vegetarian tasting menu with wine/beer/non-alcoholic pairings, and we were not disappointed. We also had a fry bar after dinner, and an incredible dessert bar that our guests still rave about today); we had an incredible wait staff during our dinner (the tasting menu with pairings did not make their job easy, but they made it look easy); both Noah and Janel were constantly making sure everything was running smoothly during the reception; we had said that our dream wedding would have a fire pit where people could make s’mores, and Janel made our dreams come true by buying a fire pit for us, allowing us to set up a s’mores station, and Noah continuously tended to that fire on the literal coldest day we had last winter; and at the end of the night, I swear I blinked and Noah and the rest of the wonderful wait staff had all of our decor torn down, put nicely back into the boxes they were brought in, and ready to go! AND they are BY FAR the most reasonably priced, quality restaurant venue in the entire Twin Cities! The venue is beautiful, the staff is wonderful, they are LGBT friendly AND vegan/vegetarian friendly (with SO many more options than just a crappy tomato pasta and french fries)! I truly could not say enough positive things about our experience here! If you are looking for a place to have a reasonably priced, intimately sized, beautifully fantastic wedding; you have found the place that you are looking for!Sent on 09/06/2019
