Great Venue, Great Food, Responsive Staff. Thank you Erin and Will for making our daughter smile.
My husband and I chose to have our wedding reception at the Waldron last week and it exceeded our expectations. It was much less expensive than other places and still was amazing. My party coordinator, Erin, was very professional and responded quickly to my phone calls and emails. She took care of everything and made the whole process very smooth. The food was very good and guests complimented both the food and the venue. The service was excellent as well just wish they would leave my stuff alone. I kept getting a drink and would walk away for a minute only to come back to my drink gone. I did this all night and was very frustrated they even took away my cake as I was taking pics with guests.

Erin was great and flexible throughout the reservation process. She answered all of our questions and made sure we had all the information we needed. I cannot wait for our wedding!
We love working with the team at the Waldron! There is just a unique feel to the space, and you can see in the effort they put in that making your day special is their priority.
Urban, Unique, Unmatched is the McFadden's Pearl room slogan and I find that statement to ring very true. I own and operate a West Michigan mobile deejay service and we get the opportunity to host events all over the state of Michigan, the Pearl room stands out from the crowd and is a true gem! The room itself has a very classic, yet contemporary look, all at the same time. The room is very photogenic! I believe the Pearl room can accommodate up to 150 guests for a seated dinner & (200 plus) for more cocktail/hors d'oeuvres oriented affairs. The room offers a certain intimacy & coziness to it, that is very hard to match. Erin Lindsay, the McFadden's event coordinator & the McFadden's team do an amazing job. As a mobile deejay I work together with a variety of wedding vendors such as photographers, caterers, bar staff, and wedding planners to help out in having a reception run smoothly. When our deejays host an event at McFadden's we know what to expect, which makes our job that much easier in creating a great tempo & flow to the evening. Under Erin's leadership there are very high standards, as a client you can expect professionalism and attention to detail from the Pro's at McFadden's. As a mobile deejay service we also look forward to working in the Pearl room, as it comes equipped with its own built in DJ booth, it presents very well look wise, and is elegant yet cool. Another bonus feature to the room is "The Open Lounge Area". Later in the evening, as receptions transition into the "open dance party" portion of the night, certain guests may prefer a more relaxed atmosphere. The Lounge Area offers a spot for these guests to retreat too, while still keeping them engaged as part of the party. For the right size group, McFadden's is perfect, it's never the wrong choice!

Fun downtown venue right in the heart of it all!
