We worked with Shae Sepic, Wedding Sales and Catering Manager, from initial inquiry through the wedding weekend, and she was fantastic. We really appreciated her knowledge, diligence, candor, energy, and flexibility. Both bride's and groom's family and friends came from out of town, many guests were staying at The Edgewater, and the ceremony was held at The Edgewater - it was not just a reception site. This made things a bit more complicated than just having a reception. Shae and her team were very professional in dealing with all the questions and overcoming the occasional problems that arose along the way. They were very good in accommodating special touches suggested by our wedding consultant and providing invaluable advice in suggesting outside vendors such as florist, DJ, Photo Booth, Dessert Pies and so forth. The Edgewater is a very popular venue for a number of events, meetings and wedding receptions. The team from The Edgewater demonstrated a great deal of effort, professionalism and flexibility in making sure the wedding and reception was what we wanted - the truly enjoyable and memorable event that it was. We could not be more pleased with how it all turned out.Sent on 10/03/2017

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

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.Sent on 12/17/2018
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!
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. The Camerata String Quartet has appreciated the direct assistance of staff and administration as they seek to provide an extraordinary ambiance for their guests! Camerata String Quartet/Madison WI
