Simply the Best Detroit Venue
All the stars for this place and their team. 2020 has been an unbelievably challenging year for wedding planning with the covid pandemic shutting down nearly everything. We were initially booked at the Madison for our ceremony and reception before the pandemic hit. After holding off as long as possible, we eventually decided to move our reception to next year, but keep our ceremony. The big question then was where would we hold it?
About 2 weeks before our ceremony date, The Madison opened back up for small weddings (10 or fewer guests), which was perfect for us! They set up audio and video, and ran a high-quality Zoom meeting so the rest of our guests could safely watch remotely. We were their first “mini-wedding” of 2020, and it was flawless. They accommodated our vendors and helped us put together a beautiful ceremony in a very short time period. The communication was excellent and the professionalism was top notch. Shout out to Connie and the rest of the team for their tireless efforts!
It ended up pouring rain for most of the day of our ceremony, so the folks at the Madison set us up inside in the loft space. This worked out great because the audio was crystal clear for our virtual guests (no wind inside!). The rain stopped in time for us to still get some amazing photographs up on their spectacular rooftop area after the ceremony, so we really feel like we got the best use possible out of The Madison’s space.
Despite all the craziness of this pandemic-filled year we were able to get married at our venue of choice and it was absolutely perfect. We couldn’t recommend this place and their staff more, and we are ecstatic to be coming back here next year for the in-person reception party!Sent on 10/01/2020
Madison's reply:Hi Nicole + Andrew! Thank you so much for such a thoughtful, thorough, and sweet review. We were delighted to kick off our mini weddings with such a beautiful couple! Your photos from Rosy + Shaun were phenomenal and we can't wait to feature them on our social medias. Looking forward to welcoming you back next year!

Flexible during the pandemic
From the moment we met Lauren, she was nothing but accommodating to our wedding vision. She was always prompt when answering our questions. The venue was spectacular, and we were very much looking forward to having our wedding there. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we've opted for a more intimate celebration. The Madison continued to be accommodating and worked with us during this unfortunate turn of events. Although we will no longer be holding our special day here, we would highly recommend this venue to other couples.Sent on 05/26/2020
Madison's reply:Melissa and Devon - We were SO looking forward to your wedding with us, but are happy you chose something that more suits you during this unprecedented time. My offer still stands to get officiated online and marry you guys, no pressure ;) Take care and stay in touch!

State Savings Stunner!!
Danielle and the Bedrock event team were extremely helpful every step of the way during our wedding planning. She helped coordinate with our vendors to open the building to come set up. On the day of, Danielle was made sure all the vendors were taken care of, had what they needed, and on time. The event team also made sure the venue was sparkling clean throughout the whole day. We were so stress-free on our wedding day and cannot thank Danielle enough for helping us create our dream wedding at the State Savings Bank Building. It was a night we will never forget!Sent on 01/27/2020
Madison's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words, Jessica! It was an absolute blast taking part in your special day. The white dance floor and mahogany bars from Display Group looked stunning in our venue! Best wishes to you and Tony, and please keep in touch!

Team of Madison
Director, Event Venues Team
As Director of the Event Venues Team, I have the pleasure of working alongside the most talented and dedicated Venue Sales and Facilities Technicians around. Our team is laser focused on creating unparalleled experiences for our clients and event guests alike. A little about me: After graduating from Michigan State University (Go Green!), I relocated to South Florida to kickstart my career in the hospitality industry where I worked as an Event Manager for a Destination Management Company. I soon took notice of the remarkable progress happening in downtown Detroit and made my way back home to manage Bedrock’s portfolio of venues. My top three standout moments over the past several years include 1) Hosting my dream wedding atop the Madison Building rooftop, 2) Becoming a Mom to my beautiful daughter Mya and 3) Contributing to the growth and success of our incredible event venues. There is nothing more rewarding than helping others create memories that will last a lifetime!
Event Venues Team Coordinator
Hi there! I am Brittany Burns! I am a graduate from Michigan State University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Business with a focus in Event Planning. I began my professional career out of college with an amazing opportunity working in New York for the New York Yankees. Yes, I know, unpopular opinion but I do love baseball. I was able to kick start this passion of events in the city that never sleeps, and boy was it awesome. Once I moved back to the mitten, I started my journey on the Bedrock Event Team and I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years. I thoroughly enjoy planning events of all kinds but one of my favorites would be weddings. There’s just something about a bride and grooms’ big day that gets me so excited! When I am not assisting with your event you can catch me on the sidelines dancing as the Detroit Lions Cheerleader or coaching a high school dance team.
Senior Event Sales Manager
My ideal world would be one filled with rescue cats & dogs, lots of chocolate (especially if peanut butter is mixed in), and the ability to teleport myself to amazing destinations around the world. Throw in some spectacular corporate events and I’m the happiest gal in Detroit! I started managing events over 20 years ago at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC while also teaching Event Management at Duke University. Along the way I earned my CMP and CPCE designations. One of my favorite events was working with the over 40 national political leaders on a multi-day conference. Talk about a lot of moving parts & endless security meetings! I’ve been back in my home state of Michigan for nearly 4 years and just love it. I am a co-founder of the Detroit Events Council and am active as a national committee member in NACE. In my spare time, I volunteer at the Detroit Zoo hanging out with the penguins and polar bears.
