    So far so good!

    I've had a great experience so far with The Madison. I've recommended them to multiple brides so far and I love it. I've been to several weddings here as well and had a great time as a guest.

    Perfect venue for our needs!

    I am not a DIY'er, I wanted a place to help me pull off an amazing wedding for a reasonable price, and this place was a perfect fit! I had a million little questions and each one was answered quickly and I was never made to feel like it was a pain or that I was asking too much. We had our ceremony and reception there, and the team made sure we wanted for nothing! Seriously we had no issues or hiccups the entire day! The food was perfect, I will dream of their brisket for the rest of my life! The space was decorated beautifully and they even moved my memorial table from ceremony to reception! They even communicated with all the vendors so my stress level was always low. I can't thank everyone enough for helping us have the perfect day!

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.
