An Inside Look at Meadow Brook Hall
Imagine your wedding day; a private event, inside of a historic home. Not just any home, an 88,000 square foot estate in the heart of Rochester. Picture your guests, in their gowns and suits, touring this character filled home with a glass of champagne in their hands. Roaming the rooms and hallways once filled with the laughter, voices and memories of the legendary Dodge family before your reception begins. How romantic!
Meadow Brook Hall not only plays an important role in our metro Detroit history but it can play the main role on your wedding day!
This historic home was built by Matilda Dodge Wilson, the widow of auto pioneer John Dodge, and her second husband, Alfred Wilson. Constructed between 1926 and 1929, it included 1,500 acres, numerous farm buildings, recreational facilities, several residences and formal gardens. The rich Meadow Brook history spans from its origins with the Dodge and Wilson families to the founding of Meadow Brook Hall and Oakland University today.
When Matilda Dodge Wilson built Meadow Brook Hall, she built it to entertain heads of state, captains of industry, and leaders of the social world. She personally supervised every detail of its construction and décor to make sure it would not disappoint.
When our team from Mike Staff Productions toured the venue, we could attest that the current staff at Meadow Brook Hall upholds the same standards today. It was stunning. As far as their wedding day features, they are practically endless! From a complimentary ‘day of’ wedding coordinator, to four star dining, even a tour of the home for your guests during cocktail hour – Meadow Brook ensures every part of your wedding day is top-notch. Please tell me you’ve seen their gorgeous tent for large outdoor weddings? It’s MAGICAL!
