Dream venue

I can't say enough wonderful things about Meadow Brook. We had a wedding of under 80 guests and our wedding took place indoors in the Christopher Wren dining room and the downstairs ballroom. This was the first venue we had visited and we were so blown away by how beautiful it was that we ended up canceling our other site visits to sign the contract immediately. The staff has been incredible from the beginning as well - Morgan, our event coordinator, especially is a total rockstar! She was so responsive and checked in frequently throughout to make sure we had everything we needed. On the day of, from the rehearsal, to setup, and the ceremony/reception, she was always present to make sure everything was on schedule and going according to plan. She is a true professional! Our guests are still raving to us about how incredible the venue was. Many thanks to all the staff who made our dream wedding possible.

Beauty & reverence in the great hall

Our wedding planning experience went so smoothly thanks to Christine and Morgan. After our first consultation and tour with Christine, we knew that Meadow Brook Hall was special by the time we got back to our car. We were treated very well at our tasting and were introduced to Morgan, who took on our account from there. In spite of repeated assurances that they will handle everything and it is all under control, I was still skeptical. Nevertheless, my fears were unfounded and Morgan and her team truly delivered. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating, even with last second dinner changes. From early conversations and consultations, through rehearsal, set up, dinner (with dietary curveballs), and tear down. Everyone was courteous, professional and truly put us and our guests first. Morgan did such a great job - I would trust her with my life!
