Terrell and Jenese held their wedding at the gorgeous Meadow Brook Hall on a real hot summer day! Emerald City Designs was in charge of the amazing decorations and flowers, and once again they outdid themselves! Terrell and Jenese’s wedding ceremony was set up at the beautiful Pegasus garden and they had a lovely tent reception that followed. We love shooting weddings at Meadow Brook because of the amazing architecture and the pristine grounds around it. This was an amazing day because the bride and groom were very emotional and they were surrounded by their families and lots of love.
Meadow Brook Weddings

Three lovely spots for your Michigan wedding are the Pegasus Garden and the Rock Garden, and the Breakfast Garden.
Traditionally known as the Breakfast Garden because of its location off the Breakfast Room, this formal garden is enclosed with brick walls and is one of our most popular spots for a wedding ceremony. The Rock Garden, a magnificent combination of open space, floral gardens, and old-world charm. - Meadow Brook
If you're looking to have a larger wedding reception, of course they can accommodate that! The offer a garden tent that holds all your friends and family comfortably.
For larger wedding receptions, the Garden Tent is available from mid May through mid October. Positioned on the expanse of lawn south of the Pegasus Garden, the majestic white tent has become Meadow Brook Hall's symbol of summer wedding magic.
Here's some more about the indoor features of Meadow Brook Hall:
With an indoor wedding, the dining experience takes place in the breathtaking Christopher Wren Dining Room. Giuseppe Corrado Parducci, the renowned Detroit sculptor, designed and articulated the elaborate plaster ceiling after 18th century designs by Christopher Wren, the champion of the Neo-Classical period. Though styled after the work of this architect, the final result is completely unique. The Ballroom at Meadow Brook Hall is the perfect location for smaller, intimate indoor ceremonies and is used as the rain back-up site for outdoor wedding ceremonies. It seats 125 facing the fireplace or 170 facing the beautiful second story stained glass windows. The smaller wedding events (under 100) use the Ballroom for dancing after dinner in the Christopher Wren Dining Room.
Your indoor Michigan wedding photography will be unique and artistic, with great ornate and intricate detailed architecture as your backdrop that is displayed throughout the mansion. The Dodge Mansion and all the grounds of Meadow Brook provide many beautiful and unique locations that work perfectly for your outdoor Michigan wedding photography.
We hope you'll enjoy these images from past Meadow Brook Hall weddings, and we look forward to speaking with you about your Michigan wedding photography!
Nick and Holly braved the insane winds on Saturday and had an incredible ceremony and reception at Meadow Brook Hall and Gardens in Rochester, MI. Although it was windy, they had a really beautiful outdoor ceremony in the Pegasus garden. Nick and Holly gave us a lot of time to photograph them at the Royal Park, downtown Rochester and the inside and outside of Meadow Brook. This was super nice because we were all relaxed, we were having fun and we had time to come up with really great shots.

We photographed a very sweet couple Sam and Angela this past weekend at the beautiful Meadowbrook mansion. For anyone that hasn’t seen it, Meadow Brook Hall is an amazing place for an outdoor summer wedding in Rochester, MI. For those looking for a wedding in a garden setting, there is no better place. Meadow Brook also boasts a huge tent for an outdoor reception that is still sheltered in the event of inclement weather.
Everything went off without a hitch and we were blessed with a day with only a few sprinkles even though it threatened rain all day. It was very touching when Angela and her dad danced together during the reception to a song that he had recorded himself singing.
We also had the pleasure of working with Lee and Lisa Thomas on video. I can’t wait to see their trailer!
There were a few sprinkles in the sky on this hot day but it actually created a rainbow right over the tent!
This weekend was the wedding of Eric and Jacqueline at the gorgeous Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester MI. This is one of the top rated venues in the state and Meadow Brook is picture perfect for outdoor weddings. The castle and gardens make for an ideal and luxurious setting that is stunning to photograph year round. It was supposed to storm that day but the weather held up nicely so everyone was able to enjoy the fresh summer air, no umbrellas necessary. Jacqueline made a dramatic entrance at the ceremony by walking out of a fog filled tent wearing a magnificent dress by Katerina Bocci. We also had the pleasure of working with top notch event planner Kathy Byrum from Dream Weddings & Event Planners.
Aaron & Amy’s outdoor wedding ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Meadow Brook Hall. This is one of Metro Detroit’s premier wedding destinations; They deliver luxury! It was a beautiful and rather hot day, but that is much preferred to rain! Everything turned out great. There was a strolling dinner and amazing dessert spread. We felt so welcomed by everyone in their families and bridal party; Such genuine and nice people! It was also great to work with two of our referred vendors: DJ and event planner Mary Ann Ross and Minister Miriam Jerris.
As mentioned, the desserts were a huge hit!
