We had such an incredible experience at the Meadow Wood Manor, from the first time that we met with our wonderful sales rep, Heather, through the night of our reception. The staff is friendly, diligent, and really caters to your every need. The owner and his wife are at every wedding, and our guests even commented that it was great to meet him. We had a fantastic time with our parents at the Grand Tasting, and the food is delicious. We had several guests comment that it was the most food, and the best food that they ever had. We are looking forward to returning for an anniversary dinner. Thank you for a beautiful wedding reception!
I was familiar with the Meadow Wood Manor from when I worked at a nearby hotel and handled a lot of their room blocks. I always joked that of all reception venues I worked with MWM was the only one I would actually get married at. So when the time came I went there met with the sales person booked it and never looked back.The service from start to finish was on point. Everything was great leading up to my wedding but the day off just blew me away. As the Bride and Groom you will always have a different experience than your guests everything you do is catered to. At the MWM it's almost like it's everyone's day. The food is amazing, the customer service can't be matched. The owner was passing out hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour, and not because they are short staffed but b/c he cares about the experience of his guests. My wedding was in November and I still have people telling me how it was the best wedding they ever went to(even recently married couples haha) No one can stop talking about the food and service. Of course the MWM is beautiful and food was great. but honestly the most important thing to me was making sure my guests were having a great time during one of the best days of my life. I am so happy I chose the Meadowwood, b/c they made sure that happened. A lot of couples when they get married they want to go somewhere "different" not where someone else they know has gotten married. Well I hope someone I know does get married at the Meadowwood just so I can go back there for another awesome night.
The Meadow Wood Manor is an exquisite venue. From the large staircase as you enter the lobby, to the beautiful bridal suite with spacious bathroom to fit even the biggest ball gown.With a warm and inviting feel, you wont be disappointed. From the moment our guests stepped into the lobby, they treated like royalty. The Meadow Wood loves personal touches, and allowed us to really throw a party that was unique and personal to us. The food is fantastic. The cocktail hour alone is enough to stuff you. No one will leave your wedding hungry or disappointed. The staff is beyond helpful. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. All thanks to the Meadow Wood Manor!
The Meadow Wood Manor was an amazing venue for my wedding. The food, the ambience, the staff, and the overall feel was amazing. Being a very A-type personality I was overly prepared with checklists and research, and the staff of the Meadow Wood Manor alleviated all of my concerns with being equally buttoned up and really making my experience seamless. The day of the event my bridal attendant Becky was more than I could have asked for and the day ran perfectly! I loved the venue, the staff, and the owners attention to detail and support for our special day!!
Meadow wood manor made our wedding a dream come true!! They took every detail very seriously and kept me in the loop at all times. They were incredibly organized from signing the contract to food tastings and picking cakes and linens to day of details. It was a huge relief to not have to worry about anything on our wedding day because MWM had everything under control.
The venue is stunning, the garden where we had our ceremony is beautiful and the food is out of this world! What more could anyone ask for??
MWM helped us personalize our cocktail hour and they made every guest feel important. I am so happy we chose this venue and I hope to return there for an event in the future! Jeff and his staff will not let you down!
My husband and I fell in love with MWM from our first visit. Heather was our sales rep and we had an instant connection with her. I loved the location and how it had a friendly house atmosphere. All the ideas we wanted to incorporate we were able to make happen. The people at MWM were amazing. They take care of everything and help make everything run smoothly. The food is top notch.. It is delicious and everyone is raved over the food. Becky was an awesome wedding attendent. She treated my husband and I so well.
When I first walked into Meadow Wood Manor, I was greeted by Mary Ellen. Mary Ellen shows us around the venue and introduced us to the owner, Walter. The reasons we were attracted to the Meadow Wood Manor are the following: 1-only have one wedding at a time 2-amazing food and selection 3-service. Let me say, we were not disappointed. I love that food selection that the Meadow Wood Manor provided. My husband and I loved the 50's station. All my guests loved it. The selection of food for the entrees were all amazing. Every guests enjoyed their food. Finally, dessert was amazing. Let me say the services were amazing. Each waiter was there to cater our guests. The owner, Walter, was there to ensure everything went smoothly.
I highly recommend the Meadow Wood Manor. My wedding was amazing and I thank them for helping us through everything.
The Meadow Wood Manor was probably the third place we looked at for our wedding reception, and we fell in love immediately. It had everything we were looking for: an elegant and warm feel to it, a beautiful staircase for photos, a separate cocktail hour room (which, by the way, is amazing. The woodwork in that room is beautiful), and all at a great price :)
I worked with Danielle to coordinate everything for the wedding and she was also wonderful. She was available any time I needed her, and answered all the little last minute questions I had.
After the wedding, I was told by my MOH that there were a few issues during our reception with some guests, and Meadow Wood was amazing with taking care of it without me or the other guests even knowing. I greatly appreciated that.
I cannot express how incredibly happy I am that my husband and I chose Meadow Wood Manor as our reception venue for our wedding. Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days in your life and I am so happy that my husband and I decided to entrust this important day with Meadow Wood Manor. We had about 190 guests and all of our guests could not get over how beautiful the building was, how hospitable the staff was, and how delicious the food was. Planning with the staff at Meadow Wood Manor was so much fun and they were so receptive to every idea that my husband and I had. I would gladly recommend Meadow Wood Manor to anyone looking for a wedding venue!
I had my wedding at Meadow Wood Manor on November 30, 2013. People are still talking about the amazing food, service, and how they felt at home and welcomed.
Our wedding consultant was Maryellen. She could not have been more accommodating. She reviewed everything with is in a way where it didn't feel so overwhelming. MWM had this down to a science.
They day of, Jeff, the owner, and his wife were there to greet us and make us feel welcome. When we first got there, I was greeted by my bridal attendance (Becky) and she couldn't have been any sweeter!
We had our first look session, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception there. PEOPLE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THE AMAZING FOOD!! The food was absolutely unbelievable. The cocktail hour alone was filled with beautiful stations, pass around hourderves with impeccable service. Dinner was just the same way. Jeff was up and around asking our guests if they needed anything, helping his servers, and bringing drinks to the table.
We couldn't have asked for or imagined anything better for our big day!
Thank you MWM!!! :-)
Everything about Meadow Wood is perfect. Jeff, the owner, was on site during the wedding which was very comforting. The staff is very professional and helpful. It really shows that they are trained well and want the bride and groom to have a flawless wedding. We had the ceremony and reception on site and it worked wonderfully. Jeff helped run us through the rehearsal so we knew what to expect. During the night, we had many staff members check on us to see if anything was needed. We were never in need of anything because they had everything in order ahead of time. We had an amazing time and we look forward to the anniversary dinner event that they throw for couples who had their wedding there. Thank you so much Meadow Wood for our spectacular NYE wedding!
Months after my wedding I'm still getting compliments on the MWM!! "Class Act" "I'm recommending it to everyone." Heather was an exceptional sales person and was extremely helpful and responsive during the entire planning process - I had no issues. We felt so welcome from the moment we stepped in and did not feel pressured into our decision. We were invited to attend a food tasting several months before the wedding and I'm really glad we did because we got to sample the amazing food and I ended up upgrading our fish dish to the tasty sea bass. The service at the MWM is exceptional - everyone is so professional and experienced and they take pride in their service. The food is out of this world. We had passed h'or deuvres including a 3 lb. lobster! They also helped us turn their signature 50's diner station (sliders, fries, milkshakes) into a San Francisco 49er's tailgate station with our decorations, complete with attendants in referee uniforms. The variety of food at cocktail hour is amazing and so is the presentation of the food. We also had a complicated allergy request for a guest and the catering manager contacted me well in advance to ensure they addressed my guest's needs. Jeff the owner also met with this particular guest during the evening to ensure she did not have any issues.
Our whole evening went on schedule, the meals were hot and the drinks were flowing! The ballroom is beautiful, spacious and not gaudy (as many venues in NJ are quite gaudy). This really fit our style. There are outdoor patios perfect for outdoor cocktail dining and late night cigar smoking. We decided to take our bridal party photos right on site on one of the patios before the reception - it was a nice alternative to a park to help us stay on schedule. We also took some formal pictures on grand staircase. Jess was my bridal attendant and she checked in with me frequently to ensure I had water or drinks. The night could not have been any better and everyone at the MWM exceeded my expectations!
We absolutely LOVED the Meadow Wood Manor! The atmosphere is gorgeous and elegant. The staff and service is impeccable. They are there to assist with your every need. They even gave my dad suspenders! The FOOD was AMAZING!!!! The food at cocktail hour is so expansive that it could easily be the meal. We got married at the Meadow Wood Manor this October and people are still talking about our wedding, the venue and the food, and saying that it was the best wedding ever! I would definitely recommend the Meadow Wood Manor to everyone. I have nothing negative to say at all about it. We can't wait to go back for their anniversary dinner!
They were great. The food was beyond fantastic. The staff friendly and sweet.
I recently had my wedding at the Meadow Wood Manor. Heather and the staff were amazing to work with. They will do everything and anything to make sure your wedding is exactly how you would want it. I would rate their sales staff and overall staff 5 star. I'm so sad the owner's wife ruined it for me. A few snags I had - they have you make 3 lists of seating charts. After the wedding, I had some people say their wasn't a seat for them at their table. We 3 seating lists, I would hope that wasn't something they would mess up and it's very awkward when someone approaches you about that. Next issue - they have you do a food tasting to get you to upgrade your food. My husband and I decided to upgrade our chicken dish to the harvest chicken dish with sweet potatoes. Day of wedding, not the same dish we were sold on. It was this dish I picked for myself, so that was kind of disappointing lacking the gravy and sweet potatoes. I paid more for a specific dish that I did not get. These aren't that big of a deal but something to note and I would give them 4-5 start off these because things happen. I'm giving them 3 stars because if the owner's wife. I had read a couple reviews saying the owners were nice and a few saying they were NOT nice. I unfortunately must go with he latter. The husband was very pleasant to my husband and I, however his wife is very rude. Our wedding was to end at 5 pm. At 4:50 they already began to break down for the evening wedding. The wife was determined to have us out immediately. I wanted to make sure our gifts got into a car. She repeatedly told me to leave the gifts there and pick them up the next day, "the shuttle must leave". I'm sorry but I'm not leaving thousands of dollars of gifts there to pick up the next day when it takes 2 minutes to get a car to get them. After she realized she was inappropriate she tried back tracking with my mom. It's really upsetting to leave your own wedding that way. I understand its a business and you need to get ready for the next wedding, however we weren't there at 5:30-6. It wasn't even 5 yet and our wedding was from 12-5. So great venue, but steer clear of the owner's wife so your wedding doesn't end the way mine did - disappointing.
Great service, food, and staff! Loved them!!!
Everyone at Meadow Wood Manor ensured we had an amazing wedding and that all of my guests were catered to. They were on top of everything and made ensure all of my requests were taken care of. All of my guests raved about the venue. It is absolutely beautiful.
My husband and I held our wedding reception at Meadow Wood, and we couldn't have had a more perfect experience. The food was delicious, the rooms were beautiful, and the service was impeccable. Our coordinator, Mary Ellen, worked with us right from the start to create a day that was exactly what we wanted. Any time we had a question or wanted to make a change, it was never a problem. From helping us figure out ways to save some money, to changing a few of their standard menu items to fit our tastes, we found the staff to be completely dedicated to making our wedding perfect. The staff who was there the day of couldn't have been more helpful, from getting us food, helping me change my shoes, and packing up cake and desserts to take to my grandmother and great aunt in their nursing home so they could be part of our day as well. Our guests had a ball and we couldn't have been happier with our wedding! We love Meadow Wood and wish we could do it all again! :)
I cannot say enough about the Meadow Wood Manor. From our initial meeting to our final good-bye's, the entire staff was amazing! We worked together with our coordinator on how we wanted our wedding to be, and the staff made that happen! She kept what we wanted and kept it personal to us and made suggestions along the way. Our guests were greeted with the biggest smiles when they walked in the door. Our guests were treated to our signature drink and the best tasting cocktail hour ever! The Mets Tail Gating station was a HUGE hit! Everyone raved about it! Once cocktail hour was over, our guests were amazed at the grand ballroom. The food was so delicious! The dessert room was another huge hit. Everyone loved all the amazing dessert stations! Our bridal attendant was also amazing! She deserves a medal! Couldn't write this review without mentioning the fact that our attendant truly were by our side every moment. Amazing! To top it all off, Jeff (the Owner) was on site serving along side his staff and giving hugs and smiles to make our day even that much more personal. With one wedding there at a time, they made The Meadow Wood Manor feel like our home for the day! We are so pleased we had such an enjoyable experience for our wedding! We wore smiles all day long, and so did our guests, which made our wedding day truly amazing!
From the moment we walked in the door, I knew Meadow Wood was the place where we had to get married. The beautiful staircase is the first thing you see when you walk into the main lobby, and it makes an amazing back drop for pictures. There are two patios, separate rooms for cocktail hour, dessert stations, and dinner, as well as a downstairs lobby area by the bathrooms and bridal suite and groom's suite upstairs. The place is very spacious and they only do one event at a time, so it is all yours for your wedding. Mary Ellen was always helpful in responding to my questions in a timely manner during the planning process. We wanted a Saturday night wedding, so the original price was beyond our budget, but they were able to work with us to cut down our package to make it more affordable. We also didn't meet our guest minimum, and they were able to help us out with that by charging us less per person for those who didn't attend. We had our ceremony on one of the garden patios, and it was beautiful. The cocktail hour room and food were amazing! We did the 50s station but turned it into a NY Giants tailgating theme. The guests loved it! The dinner food was delicious as well. In addition to our cake, which they provide through Gourmet Touch Bakery, we had the ice cream bar dessert station. My tip for that is ask the DJ to announce it because hardly any of our guests even knew it was there because it was in the adjoining room. The bridal attendants always made sure my husband and I had what we needed throughout the entire evening. I spent so much time worrying and planning before the event that it was so nice to have the staff at Meadow Wood take control of the timing of everything so we could just enjoy the day. I highly recommend having your wedding at Meadow Wood Manor! I am hoping one of my friends will get married there as well so I can go back and enjoy it again!
