I cannot even begin to describe how amazing the entire staff at MMoCA is! Kelli, the event manager, one of the nicest, hardest working people there is. She worked so hard with my wedding planner to give us the most amazing day! Their whole team was incredibly accommodating and super flexible. We had thunderstorm threats and everyone was ready with 4-5 different back-up plans to give us the most perfect day I could have imagined! We also rented out Fresco for our dinner and all of our guests raved about the food! The chef is amazing!!! I could go on for days about how easy they were to work with. 100% would recommend this location to anyone looking for a downtown Madison venue!Sent on 06/26/2019

My husband and I could not be happier with our experience having our ceremony at the Museum of Contemporary Art! While we were lucky enough to have good weather and utilize the rooftop, the indoor backup option is also very nice and made things way less stressful as rain began to appear on the radar the week of the wedding. The staff was incredibly responsive, and answered all of our questions. Overall, it was a very easy planning experience and we are thrilled about how everything turned out.Sent on 10/02/2018

Everything was amazing! Communication was good to great throughout the planning process between Bob of MMoCA, Ali the event coordinator at Fresco, and our vendors when necessary. Pricing is extremely reasonable for what you are getting - the biggest cost is exclusive catering through Fresco, however, the presentation and coordination of the food and drink that they provide is well worth it. Our set up was a little crazy but the team rolled with the punches and made it feel easy for my husband and me, which was such a gift. Everyone in attendance said it was the best wedding, venue, and food selection they had ever been to. The evening ran smoothly and was nicely coordinated without us having to worry about our timeline. The bartenders did a great job keeping up with the pace, recommending drinks, and keeping up with the pace of the evening. Ali made everything run so seamlessly and the transitions were flawless. I could not be happier we had the opportunity to work with her and this venue.Sent on 10/02/2018
