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!Sent on 10/08/2020

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!Sent on 09/29/2020
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.

This was the best day of my life. Not only because I got to marry my best friend but MBH and Alexis made it flawless! And by flawless I mean-FLAWLESS! The service was excellent, the attention to detail was extraordinary, and the safety and cleanliness (especially during a pandemic) was seamless. This was the perfect place for us to share our love and was only made possible because of the incredible staff at MBH. Thank you Alexis and team for making our dreams come true!Sent on 09/24/2020
Meadowbrook Hall is America's castle; the most romantic location for your event! Stunning architecture and history on landscaped grounds. The paved brick circle drive, gated entrance, garden wall doorway and exquisite building exteriours make lovely backdrops for your wedding. The helpful, organized staff take care of your every need. We love photographing weddings and events at this stunning location.
