Welcome to the Meeting House Grand Ballroom, a family operation. Tracy and Todd first met where the family business first started, at the original Mayflower Hotel in downtown Plymouth. Tracy worked in the Mayflower Dining Room, Steak House and Crow’s Nest serving fine cuisine to all the Plymouth locals. Todd worked behind the scene as a chef in the many kitchens there creating unique dishes, dinner specials, and amazing Sunday brunches. As the era of the beloved Mayflower Hotel came to an end, Tracy and Todd left for new ventures. Tracy found herself in the mortgage business and Todd went to Ann Arbor to helm a busy hotel kitchen. Twenty years later, they found themselves back where they first met and learning the wedding profession from their aunt and uncle, Mary and Randy. With the exceptional knowledge of food, excellent service, and an eye for details, Tracy and Todd have carried the tradition into the third generation. We welcome you to our beautiful ballroom!
