    Warmth and ease

    I'm glad I chose to have my wedding at The Madison. For me, the hardest part of wedding planning was choosing the venue. Thomas really put me at ease. We sat down and discussed what I wanted, we created a checklist of everything I needed and nothing was left to chance. Being able to see everything laid out in advance allowed me to relax and fully enjoy the big day because I trusted the team. Thanks to them, our wedding day was perfect.

    The Best Wedding Venue!

    Marcus and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The Madison made everything so easy, and special. From the second we walked through the door, Jessica and Thomas were welcoming and so accommodating. Jessica made everything so easy. From answering my silly questions to even helping us decide on decor. Don’t overlook this place for your wedding. It’s literally everything and more and I can’t thank the staff at the Madison enough for making our day perfect!

    If we had to do it all over again we would 100% pick The Madison.

    I can't say enough wonderful things about The Madison.

    From the beginning we had a great feeling about The Madison. They were the first venue that we met with that provided upfront pricing. Most venues give you a price that doesn't include tax or gratuity so you don't even realize you are over budget before you even start.

    They were welcoming, helpful, and clearly experts in their field. We fell in love with the BEAUTIFUL outside fire place and gave the deposit on the spot.

    We originally booked with another wedding coordinator who had left, but The Madison immediately reached out with our new contact's information. Thomas quickly followed up with an email introducing himself and we fell IN LOVE.

    Thomas is warm, welcoming, hilarious, and completely adorable. He answered all of our emails in a timely fashion, made a lot of valuable suggestions, and answered all of our questions. During our rehearsal our entire wedding party could not stop complementing how funny, warm, and relatable Thomas was. One of my bridesmaids was so jealous she didn't have a Thomas at her wedding. Even if we didn't fall in love with the outside space we would book solely for Thomas.

    For our tasting we had the pleasure of meeting Jake and having him as our server. By the end of our tasting, my mom was asking Jake his schedule to ensure that he would be at my wedding. He knew so much about the food, was extremely helpful with our selections, was personable, and funny. We found out that Jake's mom also works at the venue and we hoped they would be at our wedding.

    Luckily they both were and they were FANTASTIC. All of the staff of The Madison the night of our wedding were truly incredible. From giving us a little moment in the bridal suite after the ceremony to ensure we eat, drink, and spend a little time alone together to making sure we had everything we needed all night long. They truly made us feel like absolute rockstars.

    If we had to do it all over again we would 100% pick The Madison.
