Meadow Brook Hall Staff in planning, supporting and executing my daughter’s wedding was outstanding, professional, responsive and first class.
Meadow Brook Hall was the amazing venue we selected for our daughters wedding. From the first day the wedding planners listened to the dreams our daughter and her groom had for their wedding day. They made them come true ! The Estate is beautiful and allowed the elegance of their wedding to be enhanced by the History of the Mansion. Bridal party was announced down the red stair case just like Francis Dodge . .....definitely a Wow moment. We selected the strolling dinner with amazing carving stations, Mash potato martini bar, pasta stations and food that our guests are still complimenting. With the support all along the way from Wedding planners , Shannon and Alexis , the day was just as wonderful as we all dreamed. My friends said I was the most calm Mother of the Bride they had seen......it was all due to the trust and attention to detail the staff provides. We got to enjoy our daughters day and all the special guests who came to celebrate with us. My husband and I stood on the ballroom floor at one point and just soaked in the memory. Having a winter wedding at Meadowbrook was cozy , romantic , elegant, fun and as unique as a snowflake. Thank you so much to everyone at Meadowbrook!!!Sent on 02/28/2020

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!Sent on 01/27/2020

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.Sent on 07/24/2019
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.
