Mansion Wedding Venue in Rochester Hills

Nestled amidst sprawling gardens and historic architecture, Meadow Brook Hall is testament to Michigan’s timeless elegance and romance. For Rachel and Craig, their September wedding day at this enchanting wedding mansion in Rochester Hills was nothing short of magical.

Imagine exchanging vows in the grandiose setting of a 1920s Tudor-style mansion, surrounded by 1,500 acres of pristine gardens. Meadow Brook Hall, with its sweeping lawns and intricate architecture, provided the perfect backdrop for Rachel and Craig’s summer wedding. From the moment guests arrived, they were captivated by the opulence and charm that this historic estate exudes.

First Look at the Historical Staircase

The couple envisioned a first look that would perfectly capture the unique setting of this Rochester Hills wedding venue. Craig was waiting for Rachel at the top of the historical staircase at the Meadow Brook Hall, decorated with tapestries. Rachel dressed in a lace wedding gown and long elegant veil walked up the red carpeted staircase with a beautiful wedding bouquet made by Christopher & Co. It was an emotional moment that unfolded in front of my eyes.

We were lucky that Michigan weather truly cooperated at this September wedding. The golden shimmery light was stunning. For the couple’s wedding portraits we chose the front area of the property to allow capturing the magnificent architectural features of the grounds.

Meadow Brook Garden Wedding Ceremony with a Pegasus Fountain

Underneath a canopy of ancient oak trees, Rachel and Craig pledged their love to each other in the Meadow Brook’s East Garden. The focal point of this garden is the bronze sculpture Colt Pegasus. Pegasus, the winged horse of Greek mythology, created the Hippocrene spring by striking his hoof upon the ground of Mount Helicon. The sun peeked through the leaves, casting a warm glow over the summer wedding ceremony. With Meadow Brook Hall’s magnificent façade as their witness, every moment felt like a page out of a fairytale.


Elegant Wedding Reception in a Tent

Following the heartfelt ceremony and cocktail hour on the lawn, guests were ushered into the tented reception area, where crystal chandeliers illuminated the dance floor. Tables adorned with delicate floral arrangements and flickering candles created an atmosphere of sophistication and grace. As the evening unfolded, laughter and joy filled the air, accompanied by the clinking of glasses and the soft strains of music. Every detail, from the meticulously curated menu to the personalized décor by Belle Event Co., reflected Rachel and Craig’s unique style and love story.

From the first look captured in the historic staircase to the heartfelt speeches that brought tears of joy, Rachel and Craig’s summer wedding day at Meadow Brook Hall was filled with unforgettable moments. Guests marveled at the historic artifacts and intricate craftsmanship throughout the venue, creating conversation pieces that added to the event’s charm.

As the stars twinkled overhead and the newlyweds bid farewell to their loved ones, Meadow Brook Hall stood as a silent witness to the beginning of their journey together. The legacy of this historic estate intertwined seamlessly with their love story, creating a wedding day that will be cherished for a lifetime.
