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!Sent on 01/15/2019

Smooth and worry free
Staff was excellent and pro active. Made sure I was happy throughout the day. Food was amazing! As the bride I didn't eat much, but what I did eat was great. My guests raved about the food for a week! Roof top was AMAZING!Sent on 08/24/2019

The BEST place in Madison to have a wedding!
Words truly cannot describe how amazing the Edgewater is. The staff, the service, the ammenities, the location... they were all so perfect. We worked closely with Meghan and she was outstanding. She made things as easy as possible, especially since we were planning a Wisconsin wedding while living in Ohio. They take their weddings very seriously and make sure that you have the absolute best weekend. Our wedding guests said that this was the best wedding they've ever been to, and were raving about the food. Meghan took care of every last detail as the event coordinator - she even knew our favorite drinks and brought them to us after the ceremony. When we got back to our room after the ceremony, there were flowers, champagne and chocolate strawberries up there for us with a handwritten card from the Edgewater staff. They made our wedding weekend absolutely perfect. This is a top-notch business that I can not recommend highly enough. We definitely are planning on making the trip back to the Edgewater for our anniversary.Sent on 06/13/2019
The Edgewater is such an elegant place for us to perform for wedding ceremonies, receptions and dinner, as well as corporate parties and family events year round.
