Sue at Grand Meridian is a jewel to work with and was instrumental part in executing a beautiful wedding event. Many guests provided unsolicited compliments on the Grand Meridian venue for so many reasons. The food, the hall layout, the bar/bartenders, the decorations/table settings, the patio option, and the lobby area were all examples of what drew us to the Grand Meridian and what our guests were impressed with. The broasted chicken was so good! It was hot and moist, and there was plenty at all the tables (not just the head tables). Service was excellent. The "old-fashion fountain" is a must have - it was a HUGE hit with our guests!
The Grand Meridian is a well-managed, beautiful venue for any event, but was elegant and a great layout for a wedding venue.
I would recommend The Grand Meridian to anyone and everyone!! They are very flexible and helpful when it comes to wedding planning. My sister went there to plan her wedding and Sue was very helpful with everything and she is very honest when it comes to decorating and ideas...others ideas are always helpful. The food on top of that was out of this world amazing. Chef Joe Worden is by far the best there is. Very helpful when it comes to food and how to put things together. The tasting went amazing and he is very open to ideas, which is always a plus. :) like I said I would recommend The Grand Meridian to everyone.i hope your wedding will be there. :)
