    Wonderful Venue Ceremony and Reception

    I got married at Overture in July and couldn't be happier that we decided to go with Overture as our ceremony and reception venue. Tara and Kristin did a wonderful job throughout the planning process. I was planning the wedding from across the country and Tara and Kristin were great about communication, keeping us on track, and making that sure we considered everything. The day ran without any hitches thanks to their hard work. Also, the food was fantastic and we're still getting compliments.

    The Overture Center went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. Throughout the wedding process, they checked in several times to answer any questions and were continually available. The catering provided a wide range of options and were flexible to accommodate specialty cocktails and late night snacks. On the day of the wedding, they coordinated with our various vendors seamlessly. The reception went by so fast and without a hitch due to their efforts. A secret gem of a venue in Madison!!

    Overture Center for the Arts's reply:

    We are so happy that your big day lived up to everything that you could have ever dreamed of! The space was absolutely beautiful! There were so many "Oos" and "Aahs" from your guests! Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to play such a important role in your big day! CONGRATULATIONS!
