    The Madison was the first and only venue we looked at. I was in love right away. We had Jessica as our coordinator and although she is resigning we never felt slighted in any way and our wedding was flawless. The food was amazing, drinks were great and the staff was so professional attentive! We couldn't have asked for a better day!

    You will be delighted with The Madison, elegant and tasteful

    From the first moment when we called The Madison to view the venue to the evening of our wedding when we departed bearing gifts and left-over wedding cake, the whole experience at The Madison was wonderful, and just what we hoped our wedding would be.
    The Courtyard boasts a majestic brick fireplace where our ceremony took place on a beautifully sunny Friday afternoon in May 2019. The beautifully decorated, intimate indoor bar area is perfect for cocktail hour, and leads into the large reception room where dinner and dancing took place.
    We chose the food station option for our wedding, and we are glad that we did. The butlered hors d’oeuvres were plentiful, varied and delicious, served with a smile by the knowledgeable waitstaff. The bar staff was friendly and very accommodating. Our choice of pork and prime rib were juicy and flavourful, and don’t even get me started on the delicious cannolis and cream puffs, let alone the incredible wedding cake provided by Di Bartolos (as part of the package).
    Our wedding party took advantage of the bridal suite a couple of hours before the wedding until we left, which was very comfortable, gave us a place to leave all our belongings and gave the few teenagers in our party somewhere to hang when the adults started embarrassing them by dancing.
    Julie Gonzales was our guide on the day, and I can’t say enough good things about her. She went above and beyond, even to the extent of following us with a bottle of champagne to ensure we never ran out of something to drink!
    Both Julie and Jessica Crespo were professional, kind, warm and gracious. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our wedding day was beautiful, well planned and above all enjoyed by everyone who attended. We received so many compliments about how elegant the venue is.
