The staff at the Meadow Wood Manor made our day absolutely perfect! From the first time we stepped foot in the Meadow Wood, I knew that this was the place I wanted to get married. Mary Ellen was so personable and answered all our questions in a timely manner. She was helpful and knowledgeable about how to set up our day. The day of our wedding was truly amazing. As soon as our shuttle arrived, our bridal attendant, Gloria, was outside, ready to help me get up to the bridal suite. Food was already set up for us and she came in several times to update me on how set up was going and asking if I needed anything. Throughout the night, she made sure that my husband and I had everything we needed from drinks to food to our personal items at the end of the night. She was amazing! Michelle is another wonderful staff member at the Meadow Wood. She was at the venue every time we went for either a tour or to drop our items off. She decorated everything perfectly and added little details that made the lobby, cocktail room, and reception room look fantastic. I have gotten so many compliments about the food and service. We had 230 guests and no one seemed to have to wait for drinks at the bar or wait long on a line for food. My guests are raving that this was one of the best weddings they have been to. The food was absolutely delicious! Thank you to everyone at the Meadow Wood for making our day a fairy-tale!
Words cannot even express how grateful I am that I found Meadow Wood Manor and that we were able to have our wedding reception there! It's been a few months since our July 23rd wedding. We keep reliving the day over and over in our heads...and we wouldn't change a thing! From the moment we booked the date, Mary Ellen was absolutely wonderful. She was enthusiastic about our day and eager to help us. As the day got closer, and we had to make more decisions, everyone at Meadow Wood Manor made it so easy! On the night of our tasting dinner, Jeff, the owner, entertained us and our parents by being a fabulous MC. Our server, Dan, was wonderful...we even requested that he work the night of our wedding! Michelle, our decorator, made me feel confident that she was going to make the decorations that we brought in a few days before the wedding look perfect, and she did! The minimal decorations that I brought paired with the traditional, classic, cozy, warm rooms within the Meadow Wood Manor gave me the exact vision that I had for our wedding. The day of our wedding went exceptionally well! Everyone on staff that night was so pleasant. Throughout the cocktail hour (which some guests thought was our dinner because it was so delicious and grand), the owner, Jeff, went around with platters and served the guests just to make sure everyone was happy and getting to try the MANY different foods. My husband, Chris, and I were treated like royalty. They got us absolutely anything that we needed at any moment. They treated our parents with the same level of service as well! At the end of the night, we gave everyone on staff hugs good-bye as if they were family. Family and friends are still raving about our wedding to this day! They loved the size of the cocktail hour room and the amount of seating in there as well. They have raved about the burger and shake station, the seafood station, and so much more! They even recognized how wonderful the staff was. I can go on and on about how wonderful Meadow Wood Manor is! I only wish that I could do it all over again next year!
We don't have enough nice things to say about Meadow Wood Manor! Our wedding was incredible and my husband I left saying that it was the best we'd ever been to. The planning process was made easy, the food was amazing, the staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful and the venue was beautiful and reflected our vision completely! We received so many compliments from our 200+ guests on the whole evening and couldn't be happier with how things turned out! We would choose Meadow Wood Manor again and again if we had to go back in time bits a no-brained if you're looking for a fabulous venue with a beautiful ballroom, amazing cocktail hour options (our custom Oktoberfest station was a huge hit!) and unique entree selections! I hope we get to go to another wedding at Meadow Wood Manor in the future because we know it will be great! Thank you to everyone who helped make our September 24th wedding so wonderful!
Meadow Wood Manor is not a 5 star wedding venue! It is a 10 star! We just had my daughter's wedding there this weekend. It exceeded our expectations! Meadow Wood has a wonderful combination of the warmth of an intimate wedding like you are in someone's home combined with incredible food and outstanding service. The cocktail hour was the best I have ever been too! The extras like a beautiful wedding cake, gorgeous ice sculpture and signature drink are just a few things that come with the package. The incredible desserts and cordial station were the perfect ending to an outstanding day!
I got married in September of 2017. This venue has been nothing but a HUGE success. From the day we booked it, the staff was so prepared and took care of every little detail you could even think of. If you don't like something, they can tailor it to whatever you would like. I have received so much positive feedback from guests. We had about 200 people and NOT one thing went wrong. The food was excellent and the entire day of, they took care of us. I highly recommend this venue for weddings!
I would give the Meadow Wood Manor 10+ stars if I could. From the minute we walked through the doors at our first meeting to the final minute of our wedding day, we were impressed. From start to finish, the sales manager and event coordinator Mary Ellen was extremely helpful and responsive with all of my questions and concerns. She went above and beyond to work within our budget, make sure all of our requests were met, and paid attention to every detail. Our guests cannot stop raving about our wedding day! From the decor, to the food, to the service - everything was phenomenal! Many people have told us it's the best cocktail hour and food they've ever experienced at a wedding! The sea bass was cooked perfectly! We chose filet mignon since that's typically a crowd pleaser, but the chef specially prepared the NY strip for my husband. The staff was SO attentive to our every need, especially our maitre d' and bridal attendant. Even when my bustle broke late into the night, she was right there to help fix it! My husband was especially impressed that the owner, Jeff Beers was there to meet with us at our initial visit and attend our wedding reception. During cocktail hour, he greeted us in the bridal suite with a gigantic platter of the most delicious lobster we've ever tasted! As a graphic designer, I wanted to design my own stationery including place cards and menus, and I was very specific about the placement of our items and decor. I was so impressed when I saw everything was set up exactly as described. The staff at the Meadow Wood truly pays attention to every detail! I can only hope that we'll be lucky enough to attend a wedding at the Meadow Wood Manor as guests some day. They are an affordable option without sacrificing quality and service! We HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the Meadow Wood to anyone looking to make their wedding dreams a reality.
I am so happy that I found the Meadow Wood Manor to host our daughter’s wedding. Mary Ellen was wonderful to work with right from our initial meeting and throughout the entire planning process. On the day of the wedding, everything was absolutely perfect and went beyond our expectations. Jeff, the owner, was so thoughtful and considerate to all our family and friends who attended the wedding. The staff was very attentive and pleasant; the food was incredible and the venue was exceedingly beautiful! The Meadow Wood Manor truly gave my daughter and new son-in-law the wedding of their dreams!!!
My wedding day was perfect thanks to Meadow Wood Manor! From the moment I walked in the door to tour, I could tell they really cared about me and my individual wedding. They have a HUGE food menu! For cocktail hour they have about 6 food stations and about 20 passed appetizers. When the bride and bridesmaid were in the suite they even brought the appetizers up to us. Everything was an open bar. Then the reception room was beautiful. All the food was delicious, and there was even so much dessert and a whole dessert room. You can get even a bananas flambe dessert show. Best of all, the cost was the same compared to other venues for so much more. If you were looking for a lower budget they would work with you to cut out additional things you won't need and they give you a full list of dates and prices so you can pick what works best for you and your budget. (We planned our wedding only 7 months out so got a discount on a august date they did not fill up!). The site is beautiful, the staff is fantastic and caring, the food is delicious, and they were plenty of drinks. This place has everything you are looking for. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars!
My husband and I could not be more happy with our choice of Meadow Wood Manor for our wedding! The staff was so friendly and easy to work with as we planned our big day, and they were happy to go above and beyond to accommodate our requests. We even had a few last minute changes that the staff accommodated without hesitation, and they were beyond accommodating when we did not reach our expected guest count. The food and the service on the night of our wedding were incredible (I'm still thinking about the sea bass!) Many of our guests have said that ours was the best wedding they have ever attended. I even had a friend tell me that she will consider Meadow Wood Manor for her own wedding!
I could not be happier that we chose the Meadow Wood Manor for our big day! From the very first day we met with Mary Ellen she did nothing but accommodate and fulfill our every request. The Meadow Wood was incredibly flexible, and extremely helpful; taking time and care to answer every question we had. The staff at the MWM is incredible, everyone from the owner, to the chef, to the wait staff took their time to meet with us to help ensure our day would be perfect. I have received a lot of feedback from many guests about how attentive the staff was throughout the entire night. Our bridal attendants were phenomenal and took care of our every single need, and anticipated what those needs might be. They made sure we had favorite items from the cocktail hour at our sweetheart table so that we didn't miss a thing. I am still receiving rave reviews about the cocktail hour, and all of the food throughout the entire night. I have been told that it was the best cocktail hour people had ever been to, my dad said the sea bass entree was the best he's ever had, and my father in law is still talking about the filet mignon. My cousin even made a point to come and tell me how amazing the vegan entree they made for him was. People always remember the food, and we could not be happier with the food at the Meadow Wood Manor. My husband and I are hoping we can attend a wedding at the MWM as guests in the future! We would recommend the MWM to anyone we could, they are truly the best!
My family can not stop talking about my wedding at Meadow Wood Manor! Many compliments of the BEST COCKTAIL HOUR EVER, amazing food and what impeccable service! All the staff is incredibly attentive and so very amazing to work with. Highly recommend this venue!
I cannot say enough good things about Meadow Wood Manor! From the staff, to the venue itself, to the food and drinks, everything was picture PERFECT! We had only looked at one other venue, because once we looked at Meadow Wood we knew this was the only option for us. Right off the bat everyone made us feel like our wedding would be personal and intimate, not like a lot of other venues looking for a check. They truly care about every little detail of the day to make it perfect for you and your family. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful every step of the way. They were incredibly accommodating in every way imaginable and I truly cannot stress enough how amazing everything was here. Our guests are still raving about how beautiful everything was and how delicious the food was. SO many people came up to us that day and days following, telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Every single person I worked with there throughout the planning process was so kind and open to any suggestion we had. They truly made their venue feel like home to us that day. I have heard horror stories about wedding venues giving so many problems, but it was completely smooth sailing with planning! Honestly, the best people to surround yourself with planning a wedding! No matter what season you are getting married, Meadow Wood is the perfect place to book! AWESOME experience from day one!
So thankful for choosing the Meadow Wood Manor as our wedding reception venue! From the booking, to corresponding in between, and of course the actual event everyone at the Meadow Wood Manor is a true professional and so enjoyable to work with! They made everything easy, and thought of every single detail. The most beautiful wedding venue that we could have asked for! Rave reviews from guests on the cocktail hour, dinner, open bar, and of course the gorgeous venue! Our guests were blown away by the Meadow Wood Manor and so were we. :-)
Words cannot express how amazing the team at Meadow Wood Manor is. My husband and I had our reception here on June 30th and it was truly a fairytale. Mary Ellen helped us leading up to the big day with any questions we had and offered helpful suggestions. On the day of our wedding, we had Paula as our bridal attendant. She was fabulous and so helpful (even coming to the rescue with safety pins)! When planning a wedding for around 150 guests it can be a daunting task to ensure everyone's dietary needs and preferences are met. MWM went above and beyond when it came to food! The amount of variety they offered throughout the night and accommodations they made for anyone with dietary restrictions was outstanding! All of my guests could not stop talking about how delicious everything was and about the amount of food to choose from. To MWM, thank you so much for everything! Our reception was a dream come true all thanks to you. For any brides that are considering Meadow Wood Manor, book them. They will ensure that you and your guests have a truly magical night!
My fiancé and I cannot wait to have our reception here in December. The pictures do not do this place justice. I fell in love with it the moment we walked in. We were also very impressed by the hospitality we were given even as only potential customers. Every step of the way since then the staff has been so accommodating. We know they are going to make our night so special.
We picked the Meadow Wood Manor because of the food, and we were not disappointed! Our attendant was Gloria-and she was amazing! Jeff, Mary Ellen, and the Meadow Wood staff made it easy to plan a wedding from out of state, went out of their way to accommodate our unique ideas, and were so friendly the entire time. We had no worries or issues with them while planning or on our wedding day. Now we are just hoping that someone else we know gets married there so we can enjoy it again!
We looked at about half a dozen venues for our wedding, although it was clear to us right away that MWM was the place for us to have our wedding. I actually missed the first half of the our very first visit, as I met up with my wife and our parents' straight from a business trip. But when I walked into the meeting they were all having with Nancy and Jeff (the owner, who is very hands on) everyone was laughing, enjoying food, and having a great time. Jeff actually went downstairs and fixed me an entire plate of food on the spot because I hadn't had lunch. This is honestly what makes MWM so special, the warmth and generosity everyone at this venue treats you and your family with. This vibe really permeates through the whole staff and was something we experienced every time we met with the venue - whether to plan out major details for the day, to attend a tasting, or just to drop off or pick up items. They excel at making you feel welcome, and frankly at home every time you come in - which I think is a key to excellent customer service. And then there's the value that we really felt we got by choosing Meadow Wood Manor - which really starts with the Cocktail Hour which was just ridiculous. They had options for everything and even threw in additional items for us at both the cocktail hour and dessert (as if we needed more food). One of our guests actually told me that they chased down one of the waiters who was walking around with a tray of lobster meat and unfortunately got to her when the tray was just empty. He asked her to come find her if she came back out, and figured - "there's no way I'm ever going to see her again." Sure enough, 5 minutes later she found him and his friends with a full fresh tray of lobster (which by the way, we didn't know we were getting as part of the menu we ordered). But again, I think that goes to their entire staff's mentality to make sure guests (not just the bride and groom and immediate family) leave their venue happy and satisfied. Lastly, we had a lot of aspects of our wedding that were very specific to us - like where we wanted certain photos placed or how we wanted things laid out - and instead of getting annoyed or ignoring these requests - they took the time to listen to us and make sure all these little requests were made. At the end of the night we had a lot of guests come up to us just completely blown away by how much fun they had (had a few people tell me it was the greatest wedding they'd ever been to) - which is absolutely what we wanted - and MWM's high value placed on guest satisfaction, attention to detail, and all the ridiculously delicious food at every stage in the night contributed to a great party that for us, and our friends and family - was absolutely unforgettable.
Everyone is so helpful and excited for you! It is a great atmosphere, they treat you like family
My now husband and I actually met working at Meadow Wood Manor over 8 years ago (he was a runner & I was a server!) We dated almost the entire time we worked there and once we got engaged we knew there was no other place in the world we wanted to get married. We chose Meadow Wood Manor for the staff, the incredible food, the attention to detail, and the awareness of each and every guest. The staff is absolutely INCREDIBLE (we should know we were part of it!) but being on the other side of things made us realize even more how inexplicably special each staff member is. From the hostess greeting each guest, to the servers and runners who work tirelessly to make sure everything is perfect and each guest is the happiest they could possibly be, to our AMAZING bridal attendants Gloria & Alli - who tended to us and our bridal party every minute of the evening. Next is the owner, Jeff, who makes sure that everything is going smoothly and is there to personally check on the guests at each table after dinner is served. Our Matre'd Donald was beyond incredible - making sure there was not ONE thing we wanted or needed throughout our night. My husband and I chose Meadow Wood because we wanted our guests to feel as special as we did for them spending their night with us - Meadow Wood Manor made that happen. The FOOD oh my goodness- I am a HUGE fan of eating - the choices are endless and magnificent - all of our guests were full by the end of cocktail hour (something we heard every event we worked over 8 years - and it held true with our guests too!) and there was still salad, dinner, and dessert! The grounds are incredible - the large romantic staircase, the warm welcoming lobby you can decorate with your own photos to make it feel like your living room, the grand ballroom which has breathtaking chandeliers - all while still maintaining this feeling of warmth and coziness. There will never be enough words to explain how perfect Meadow Wood Manor is and how absolutely perfect they make each and every person feel at each and every event. Many of our friends and family asked us why we would get married at a place where we both had worked for 8 years, we had tasted all the food, we knew how the party would be run - to that we ALWAYS replied - when something is a perfect, you don't need something new. We KNEW Meadow Wood Manor was perfect, we knew they would make our dream wedding a reality and that's exactly what they did. We are forever thankful to the place that we met for brining out story full circle in the most perfect of ways! We love you guys! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We loved Meadow Wood from our first visit! We were lucky enough to see it in July and they had a special for a Saturday night in November (Thanksgiving weekend) so we took it right away and are so happy we did!! Everything was so smooth and the staff was so nice. The food was fantastic! Mandy was our bridal attendant and she was really great on the day of helping me with whatever I needed. The other day of staff were great as well. We did not do a ceremony rehearsal, instead I had made a list and drew a picture of how I imagined it and the woman at Meadow Wood (I want to say her name was Nancy, but I don't remember) did a fantastic job of making sure the bridal party was where they were supposed to be. We arrived 3 hours early the day of to take pictures and they provided champagne and snacks. The men enjoyed the "man-cave" downstairs! The bridal room is the best we saw anywhere! very spacious! The staircase was perfect for photos. We also loved just how beautiful the whole space is, especially the cocktail hour room! We did not need to provide any of our own decorations because it is already so beautiful! It was also great to be able to bring all our things a few day early and have the staff all setup for us. I would've given 5 stars however, I had just a few comments: 1. On the day of I felt like the ceremony and then subsequently the cocktail hour and reception all started 15-20 minutes late and I still don't know why. 2. Many of our guests told us they did not know dessert was out in the other room, I don't know if it was ever announced or not. And I did not get any of our wedding cake, there were slices on our sweetheart table but they were taken away before we had a chance to go back to the table to eat it. 3. I wish they would've told us ahead of time they would be bringing us into the reception room early to try all the cocktail hour food otherwise I would not have tried so hard to eat food while we were in the cocktail room and would've instead been mingling more. However, even with those complaints, I would not have changed a thing because it was the best night of our lives and I can't imagine it being anywhere else!! I would highly recommend Meadow Wood to anyone for a venue!!
From the second I stepped foot into Meadow Wood I knew that this was where I needed to get married. The staff was AMAZING and the food was fantastic. I have people calling me and telling me that it was by far the best wedding they have ever been too. Meadow Wood made my wedding a fairy tale and the entire night I felt like a princess. I wouldn't have changed a thing about it. They used all the decorations and ideas that my husband and I wanted making it such a personal and loving reception environment. My wedding was PERFECT.
There are not enough positive words to describe how we feel about our experience with everyone at Meadow Wood Manor. They accommodated all of our requests, had everything just the way we envisioned, and took care of every little thing so that we could enjoy our night to the fullest. The food was outstanding to say the least. We received so many compliments on the amount of food and the taste of everything. I cannot thank the chefs enough for adding our special requests in a flawless fashion. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and a magical night thanks to the Meadow Wood. Our long journey as a couple was rewarded with this wonderful place!
I am writing this review fresh off of my wedding I had last night. My wife and I went to about a dozen beautiful venues before we stumbled across this venue. Connie and Donald met us at the door and we hit it off immediately. We later signed the contract after feeling comfortable by gaining our trust. Here are the key points about why this venue is one of the best in the Tri-state area. 1. Schedules only one wedding at a time and great for those not interested in cookie cutter experiences. 2. They go above and beyond to "customize" your wedding to your needs and personality as a couple. This is important because they make it about you as a couple and they have a great place to make it as your home inviting your guests so they can share on your special day. 3. They are organized and will walk you through the process. You are not expected to know everything and they answer your questions and give great ideas to make your wedding ideas become reality. 4. The food is absolutely amazing. They go at lengths to make sure your food allergies of you and your guests are met to the highest standard of safety while maintaining the integrity of that world class taste. 5. The staff is very friendly and will make sure you will enjoy your day. It's almost you feel like a king or queen. How does this happen? It starts from the top with their owner Jeffrey. He has an extensive background on food and catering. Also, the venue is about 11 years old with a classic authentic look. New yet has that nostalgic feel as you walk in the front doors for the first time and see that grand star case. As a groom, I would highly recommend the Meadow Wood Manor. I am a crazy hockey fan that met my wife at a Devils Rangers game. They went above and beyond to make our dream New Jersey Devils themed wedding come true by mixing all of our favorite things into one night. Meadow Wood Manor became my house for one special wedding night and every person of my 178 invited guests told me that was the BEST WEDDING EVER PERIOD. That's only because the Meadow Wood Manor matched the type of effort and enthusiasm my wife and I put into our wedding. It takes to tango and if you follow what they say as they guide you while putting in the necessary effort, YOU WILL HAVE THE WEDDING OF YOUR DREAMS AND MEMORIES THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME! In full disclosure, I am writing this the day after our wedding and still on Cloud 9. And the best thing about it is that my wife and I can relive that moment once a year when they do an anniversary dinner for all of the couple that were married there!
We are getting married here next summer, and we cannot wait!! The staff has been super sweet and caring through the entire process, and I'm confident they will continue to do so. Mary Ellen is amazing!!!
If you are looking for a smooth wedding experience, do not select Meadow Wood Manor. We had a difficult time from the beginning. After we signed our contract we were told there would be a tasting in the early winter in order to help us make our menu selections, etc. Our tasting kept being pushed off by one of the employees at Meadow Wood until we ended up at a tasting a few months before our wedding - we were annoyed to say the least. Then as we moved closer to the wedding I was given a 15 page Microsoft Word document to complete and submit 2 weeks before the wedding. The document took me 5 hours to complete because there was so much detailed information requested. I submitted the document within the timeframe requested. When we arrived at Meadow Wood the night before our wedding to conduct the rehearsal the staff messed up the entire document. They left our Best Men and Maids of Honor and family members out of the ceremony and the employee who was leading the Rehearsal proceeded to argue with me about what order I would like my family and bridal party members to go down the aisle. We had one hour reserved for the rehearsal dinner - thirty minutes was spent fighting with this employee and the other thirty was spent rushing through the ceremony process. The day of the wedding I arrived early with the bridesmaids. That same employee approached me thirty minutes before I was about to walk down the aisle and let me know that "we have a problem". She proceeded to list the "issues" and tell me that it had kept her up all night worrying about it. I had to fight with her again about what order I wanted my bridal party to walk down the aisle. My bridal attendant was not attentive at all - I had a rather large wedding gown and the maitre'd let me know that the attendant could bustle my dress for me instead of asking my MOH. I kept asking for the bridal attendant to help me but she was standing in the corner talking with one of the other employees. I also am dairy-free (which we put into the contract) and she didn't seem to know or understand that. I spent a lot of the night explaining what that meant and what I could and could not eat - needless to say I hardly ate that night. Before we booked our wedding we had it confirmed that we would like to have shots given out at our wedding. My husband found out that the bartenders were refusing to give people shots during the reception. He had to have an hour long conversation with the maitre'd and the same employee that was giving me a hard time about the reception. He was extremely irritated about that because not only did it take a lot of time out of the reception for him, he felt that our guests weren't getting the experience that we had paid for. Our guests kept telling us that the food was great and the venue was gorgeous, however my husband and I did not have a great experience with them. We felt like we were promised a lot of things, including the owners being on-site for our wedding and none of it was delivered. If you are looking for a venue where the staff is attentive and friendly, do not book at the Meadow Wood Manor. I felt that it really ruined our entire wedding experience.
