Wonderful Experience with Madison Event Center

The Madison Event Center and their staff were extremely professional. Timely in response to every request, very pleasant, beautiful facility (we had the Emerald Room). Food and drink were wonderful. They gave us hints and ideas I would not have thought of and provided very detailed information on seating charts and room layout and alternative menus for guests that don't eat meat. They had everything in place as they said they would. There was no last minute scramble for anything. We had a sit down and the food was delivered to each guest very timely and cleared away just as quickly. I don't know where they found such terrific and thorough staff, but everyone was wonderful to work with. We only have one daughter, so only one chance to host a wedding, but I would hire The Madison Event Center again if I could!

Absolutely anazing!

Our wedding day was absolutely PERFECT! It was way more than I imagined. The day went so smoothly for me. Our captains were amazing!

I brought my decorations in labeled boxes, I had a vision in my mind of what I thought the decor would look like, but they BLEW MY MIND!! Our rooms were absolutely beautiful and our head table was chefs kiss!!

Our food was so good! The service from start to finish was 100% 5 stars. I am so happy with the turnout. Communication was great as well! Riley Clark helped me every step of the way!

I not only work with the Madison Event Center, I have been on the other end and have planned events here as well. The staff is amazingly helpful and they go above and beyond to make every detail of your wedding day PERFECT. Everything from the Chef's to the drinks are top notch. I love working with Madison Brides, they are overall less stressed out due to the coordinators at the Madison that make the hectic wedding process so much easier.
