The Meadow Brook Inn’s secret garden is the perfect setting for a romantic al fresco ceremony. Under a canopy of trees and surrounded by lush greenery and a babbling brook, you and your guests will experience the beauty of Meadow Brook Inn’s annual and perennial gardens. 150 guests can be comfortably seated in traditional white, padded wooden chairs.
“The Lawn” is the perfect place for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and merriment prior to the reception. Guests will enjoy wandering the gardens, playing lawn games and listening to music while the couple and bridal party take formal photos throughout the property. We encourage you to join your guests and the festivities as well!
The Meadow Brook Inn’s elegant ballroom can host up to 165 guests and features a crisp neutral canvas, dental molding and chandeliers and crystal sconces that accentuate the natural light from the bay windows. Wedding packages are inclusive of all tables, chairs, china, flatware, glassware, linens, and event coordinator. The romantic ambiance of the Meadow Brook Inn’s ballroom is the perfect setting for your magical wedding day.
Dance the night away with your closest family and friends at the Meadow Brook Inn!
The dance floor (25’ x 26‘) offers ample space for everybody, including a band or DJ. Lighting is another great addition to your party and can help enhance the mood. The neutral palette of the Meadow Brook Inn is the perfect background for up lighting and our chandeliers can be adjusted throughout the evening. Party on!
The Lounge is the perfect space for more intimate weddings of 50 guests or less, rehearsal dinners and more photos ops for the couple. It’s a great overflow room for guests who want to take a break from the party OR continue the party in here with a photo booth set up.
The Bride’s Changing Room
The Bride’s Changing Room is a bright and tranquil space for the bridal party to arrive one and a half hours (more time available upon request) prior to the ceremony to relax and get dressed. Typically, hair and make up is already done prior to arrival so you can use this time to unwind and take your “getting ready” photos. The space includes a vanity, sitting area, bathroom, plenty of mirrors and a dining table set with pitchers of mimosas, soft drinks, bottled water and a cheese/cracker display!
The Groom’s Experience
Arriving pre-ceremony is the ideal time for the groom to exhale and take photos with the groomsmen and parents. There are endless nooks and crannies on the property from formal to rustic and everything in between. The bar will be available for beer, wine, soft drinks, and bottled water.
Menu’s & Details
All of the Meadow Brook Inn’s menus have the flexibility of being customized to suit your wedding vision. Our Executive Chef prepares all menu items from a “scratch” kitchen and a complimentary tasting is provided to couples that book their wedding at MBI.
There are many options for bar service at the Meadow Brook Inn. You can host an open bar (full open bar or beer & wine), a cash bar or a combination of both.
Hosting open bar for cocktail hour only and then switching over to a cash bar for the reception is a popular option. Open bar is calculated on a consumption basis so you are only charged for what is consumed. The options are numerous and varied. Two bartenders are required for events with 100 + guests.
