    Absolutely dreamy venue that is so easy to work with

    Meadow Brook Hall was absolutely amazing as a venue. We went with them for a couple reasons. 1) Their minimum food & beverage spend was very reasonable and much lower than a lot of other venues we looked at. 2) The house/grounds/tent are insanely beautiful. Seriously, there is not a prettier venue. 3) The tent that you get to use for your wedding is air conditioned (our wedding was in August, and my husband and I both run very warm, so this was a HUGE plus for us). 4) You are the only event on your wedding day (we hated that at other venues there could be multiple weddings going on at a time). On top of all that, they provide you a lot of things on site that other venues make you bring in, such as tables, plates, silverware, catering, etc. We brought in our own chairs and linens just because we didn't love the look of the chairs that MBH provides. Beyond that, MBH is so so easy to work with. They will work with you to make whatever you want come true. You have an on-site coordinator who you communicate with the entire time (ours was Brooke), and she did an amazing job of being available to answer questions, make recommendations, etc. The absolute bonus is that their food (which they provide) is legitimately AMAZING. Wedding food is usually pretty meh, but I can't tell you how many guests came up to me in the days/weeks after our wedding saying how they couldn't get over how good the food was. MBH was such an incredible venue and will now always hold a special place in our hearts.

    Meadowbrook Hall knows what they are doing when it comes to weddings! The guests raved about the food and the mansion atmosphere and were so happy to finally attend an elegant event even with the Omicron variant just past peak. Thanks to Brooke for always answering all my questions and helping me with all the details. It was a magical evening!
