    Smooth event

    Our wedding reception at French Meadow/Nord Social Hall was perfect! They were able to run the event completely smoothly without any preparation needed from us the day of the wedding, down to playing background music! All our guests loved the space and the food.

    Wonderful Memory at French Meadow

    We first had our eyes on the Nord Tasting Room because it was beautiful but decided on the Social Hall due to capacity. We live out of town so it was not easy for all communication, but Janel was very accommodating and made it work smoothly for us. Janel recommended our decorator and she was amazing too. When we arrived at the venue everything looked wonderful. We used the Social Hall for both our ceremony and reception. After the ceremony all the chairs are rearranged. All the staff were very friendly, organized and personable. Overall I am glad the we chose this venue and our memories here is wonderful.

    Beautiful & Unique!

    We got married in the Nord tasting room and could not have been happier with it! It is perfect for a super small, romantic wedding. It is gorgeous on its own which makes you not need a ton of decor. Janel, the coordinator is great about answering any questions you have in a prompt manner. She has such a relaxed demeanor, which made us feel so at ease. She also took care of the flowers and set up for us, which looked beautiful. We were at full capacity in the room which is 26 people, and it didn’t feel overly cramped or tight. We are so happy with the entire experience. Highly recommend!

    Nord Social Hall at French Meadow Cafe's reply:

    Thank you so much Michelle! You were both so great to work with and it was so fun to watch it all unfold and see such joy in both of you, thank you for putting your faith in us! And again, Congratulations!!
