My husband and I chose the Madison Event Center for our wedding reception and we could not be happier with our choice!! It is a beautiful event space, conveniently located and with great perks (1 free hour of decorating, Hotel Covington upgrades, etc). Most importantly, the staff is SO friendly and SO hardworking they will go above and beyond to ensure you have the most fantastic day. Zoe was out event details specialist and she is a dream come true. She ensured our day was perfect and was very communicative throughout the whole planning process. The day of coordinators - Amy and Jake - were also incredible. They really looked out for us and ensured every moment was perfect. Amy even packed up all of our decor and wheeled it across the street for us to our Hotel Room in the middle of a downpour. She was super patient, never rushed us, and extremely helpful. We could not have survived this day without the help of the Madison staff. We are SO happy we chose them and can't recommend them enough!

We held our daughter's wedding in the Emerald room at the Madison Event Center. It couldn't have been more perfect! The event coordinators were fantastic. They always had an answer to our many questions. The staff the night of the event was very attentive to our needs. They were in constant contact with my daughter, making sure she had everything she needed and also with my husband and I. It was the easiest planning from start to finish. My daughter's wedding was on a Friday night, so they let us decorate the day before with ease. At the end of the reception night, I blinked and everything was cleaned, boxed up and on carts to take to our car. They even loaded it for us. I am so pleased we chose this venue. It truly made our daughter's day magical.
