    Wedding Review for Alexis

    Couldn’t be more happy with our service at Meadowbrook, and our wedding coordinator Alexis. From start to finish she made the stressful wedding planning a breeze and I would recommend her to anyone!

    Thank You!

    Our experience with Alexis and Meadow Brook Hall was incredible. From start to finish, Alexis was so helpful getting everything straightened out and together and keeping track of our vendors. The day of went so smoothly, all thanks to her and the rest of the staff at Meadow Brook. Despite scattered thunder storms and almost having to evacuate the tent as dinner was being served (not joking!), Alexis made sure everything was handled and let us enjoy our night as much as possible. The grounds at Meadow Brook are absolutely beautiful and so well kept and manicured. The food is also incredible. I’ve been to many weddings where the food was adequate at best, but all night our guests kept coming up to us commenting on how good the food was, from the salad to dessert. Thank you again for everything you’ve done to keep our wedding day as special and worry free as it could be.
