    Exceptional Elegance!

    If you want an iconic, elegant wedding, the Edgewater Hotel is the place to go. We had our wedding there January 12th, and they exceeded our expectations. Shae, the wedding coordinator, is beyond exceptional. She anticipated issues, and had options to deal with every possible scenario. Staff went above and beyond to make our guests feel welcomed. My brother has a deathly seafood allergies, and everyone watched out for him. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the lake view rooms are exquisite. We had our entire weekend of events there, including an intimate rehearsal dinner. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend The Edgewater for your special day!

    Beautiful venue, wonderful staff and service!

    The Edgewater was the perfect venue for my ceremony and reception - without a doubt, it's one of the best (if not the best!) wedding venues in the Madison, WI area.

    The Edgewater is absolutely stunning and elegant, but just as importantly - the staff is excellent: incredibly professional and accommodating. The entire process - from planning through the event itself - was seamless, in large part thanks to Shae, our wedding coordinator at The Edgewater. She is AMAZING at her job. I felt comfortable not having a wedding planner because she's so on top of everything and so incredibly helpful.

    All in all, we had a wonderful experience with The Edgewater - I can't recommend the venue highly enough!
