My husband and I held our wedding ceremony & reception at Meridian on Saturday, November 8, 2014.

Joyce was very helpful and accommodating. She was able to put together a discounted package for us with a minimum of 80 guests. We did not want to have a large wedding and a lot of other places wanted a minimum of 100 guests. The other thing that really grabbed us was how beautiful the lobby and rooms were - lobby has high ceilings, a fountain in the middle and multiple photo-opportunity spots for wedding photos (white couch with a backdrop, etc). Another reason why we knew we liked this place is because all of their rooms are separate rooms.

We chose the 2014 Meridian Wedding Package which included: 6 hour event - a four course meal (choice of soup, salad, entrée, vegetable, potato, and wedding cake), bread & coffee, 4 hours of open bar with premium liquor, wine service during dinner, choice of colored napkins, a centerpiece consisting of a round mirror, 3 candles, and fresh roses, champagne for the head table, and a private bridal suite (with champagne and an assorted cheese tray).

We also added a sweet table and reception room uplighting to our package. We were going to add hors d'oeuvres but decided against it due to our budget. But it wasn't a big deal - guests still snacked on the sweet table and visited the bar during cocktail hour.

Throughout my communication with Joyce and the rest of the staff, I always felt taken care of. Joyce had great ideas for things that I had trouble deciding on. She guaranteed me that our wedding would be memorable and beautiful. And it was.

The one thing that our guests have been complimenting us on is the food at Meridian. At our tasting, we were able to sample 3 items from each part of the dinner and decide what we liked best. Our main entrée was the Chicken Francaise.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this venue! . If I could do this all over again, I would still have my wedding here. 5 stars.

Meridian is a beautiful place to host any type of party or business meeting. The rooms are sized adequately and each room is designed beautifully. The friendly and helpful staff and great round out this banquet hall to be well worth the money you are going to pay. They were one of the cheaper banquet halls in the area and I was so glad we went with them.

On August 24, 2013, I had my dream wedding at Meridian Banquets. If I could give Meridian Banquets a thousand stars, I would! I can probably write a book on how amazing and wonderful Meridian Banquets is! My husband and I walked into the venue and we absolutely loved the high ceilings. A few moments later when we met Tina and her amazing mother, we knew this was the place we wanted to have our wedding. This is a true family business and my parents, my husband and I felt like we were part of the family.
Our primary point of contact was Tina. Tina patiently spent hours with me, going through every detail, and on my wedding day everything exceeded my expectations! Meridian went over and above their duties to make sure that we have my dream wedding. An example of how accommodating they are, I wanted to slightly change the cream of chicken soup by adding some diced carrots, rice and garnishing it with parsley, and my request was easily fulfilled. I wanted the chicken to be served family style, so that the sauce from the chicken does not mix with the au jus from the New York strip steak, and again Meridian was happy to accommodate my request. Another must for Meridian, the pool! Ask Tina about it! You will not be disappointed, it is a must have!
We are so happy that we booked our wedding with Meridian and highly recommend it! The food was amazing (the steaks melted in your mouth, and that is not easy to achieve with 400 steaks), the bar had all of the items which I had specifically requested (like Ciroc), the bartenders and the wait staff were very friendly and accommodating, the sweet table (personally set up by Tina’s mom) was so beautiful, and everything was absolutely perfect, just the way I envisioned it.
Words can not express my gratitude for everything that Tina, her mom and the entire Meridian staff did. It was such a pleasure working with them and I am so thankful to them for making my dreams come true! I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding!

I love the Meridian! We had our wedding shower there along with our reception. Tina and her mom were amazing! We got so many compliments on the food and everyone knows that is one of the most important parts! The room was amazing and our head table staff member was great! She made sure we had everything we needed and also got the whole head table a round of drinks. The only small problem I had was one bartender said they didn't have one brand of liquor I was drinking all night. I told him well the guy over there has it so how are you gonna tell me that you don't have it? He also didn't pour my guest a drink until he got a tip. I am so glad that we went with the Meridian and I recommend this venue if you can get it. They get booked quick! The day that we had our wedding, they also had two other wedding. It was a packed house and rumor is that guest from the wedding next door crashed ours! I mean who doesn't love a Greek wedding! They did everything we asked for and went above and beyond our exceptions. We plan on booking other events with them!

I saw MB in a Knot magazine and decided to check it out. First and only place I ended up seeing. It used to be an old movie theatre, so the rooms are huge. The lobby is beautiful and they have a brand new fountain. My mom and I met with Joyce. She was so sweet... like a second mom. We walked around and saw all of the rooms. We wanted to have the ceremony and reception there, but in different rooms. The ceremony room is large, but kind of ugly. We ended up having Elegant Event Lighting drape and light the room. The reception rooms are all large and the room we chose (E) holds around 180. The open bar is top shelf! The man and I hadn't set a specific date yet, but we knew we wanted early June. When Joyce and I sat down to discuss dates, I casually threw out June 1 as an option. Surprisingly, both rooms were available! I put a temporary hold on the rooms and called the man that night (he was currently stationed in North Carolina). He said sure, so I went back a few days later to put down a deposit.

Went for our tasting in January and the food was FANTASTIC! The portions are HUGE! We went with the combo plate (prime rib and athenian chicken) with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Our cake and sweet table came with our package, as well as top shelf open bar.

The ceremony and reception went beautifully! Everyone was so nice and helpful. All of my guests were thrilled. It was well priced and a great value!

Joyce and the Meridian staff totally blew us away. First, you absolutely cannot beat the price for the 5 star quality you receive. The food was to die for, the decor done perfectly (you give them the stuff with instructions and they set it up for you), the staff friendly and prompt, and the service divine. I would not have wanted my ceremony anywhere else! We got a ton of compliments on how wonderful the reception looked, how great the food was, and how nice the staff was.
