    Exquisite!

    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!

    The Perfect Venue!

    Our wedding coordinator Stephanie went above and beyond to make sure our special day was as special as it could be! As a corona bride, we had more than our share of stress and anxiety with the wedding process, but Stephanie was there to support us and help us through it all. Our guests raved about the amazing food at the reception, and how beautiful the hall and grounds are! I can't imagine our wedding anywhere else - it was perfect!

    Baby shower

    We recently had our daughter’s baby shower at Meadow Brook Hall. Previously, we had her wedding there in 2017. Both experiences were absolutely wonderful and flawless. Trying to have a shower in the midst of a pandemic is challenging but Meadow Brook was very accommodating and worked with us so that our event was beautiful and enjoyable. Alexis, our coordinator for both events, was so helpful and knowledgeable. She was wonderful to work with! And the food was delicious!
    I would highly recommend Meadow Brook Hall for an event especially if you are looking for a beautiful setting, a wonderful staff and excellent food.
