Flexible during the pandemic
From the moment we met Lauren, she was nothing but accommodating to our wedding vision. She was always prompt when answering our questions. The venue was spectacular, and we were very much looking forward to having our wedding there. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we've opted for a more intimate celebration. The Madison continued to be accommodating and worked with us during this unfortunate turn of events. Although we will no longer be holding our special day here, we would highly recommend this venue to other couples.Sent on 05/26/2020
Madison's reply:Melissa and Devon - We were SO looking forward to your wedding with us, but are happy you chose something that more suits you during this unprecedented time. My offer still stands to get officiated online and marry you guys, no pressure ;) Take care and stay in touch!

State Savings Stunner!!
Danielle and the Bedrock event team were extremely helpful every step of the way during our wedding planning. She helped coordinate with our vendors to open the building to come set up. On the day of, Danielle was made sure all the vendors were taken care of, had what they needed, and on time. The event team also made sure the venue was sparkling clean throughout the whole day. We were so stress-free on our wedding day and cannot thank Danielle enough for helping us create our dream wedding at the State Savings Bank Building. It was a night we will never forget!Sent on 01/27/2020
Madison's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words, Jessica! It was an absolute blast taking part in your special day. The white dance floor and mahogany bars from Display Group looked stunning in our venue! Best wishes to you and Tony, and please keep in touch!

A magical and memorable experience.
If you are looking for a wedding experience that will blow your bridal party, family, and guests away - choose the Madison! The venue is unique and memorable, our pictures with the City in the background are breathtaking, and the night will be one all your guests talk about for days to weeks following. Outside of the Venue itself, what really set the experience apart was the event team who went above and beyond in every aspect. We were lucky enough to have Julie and Brittany assigned to us and I could not have had my fairy-tale day without them. From initial booking all the way to walking down the aisle, they answered my questions with ease, made me feel relaxed, and had everything planned to the second and it was flawless. I wish I could relive the day over and over.Sent on 10/24/2019

Incredible Venue & Great to Work With!
We used the Madison for our welcome dinner the night before our wedding and it was absolutely perfect! Lauren and the Madison team are wonderful to work with - so friendly, accommodating and helpful! Lauren suggested a great caterer, arranged valet parking and coordinated our day-of weather plans. The venue itself is so unique and beautiful, our guests loved it. I can't recommend the Madison enough!!Sent on 10/28/2019

Beautiful Venue and Amazing Coordinators!!
We were in love with The Madison as soon as we saw it! From the gorgeous city views on the rooftop, to the event space on the Fifth Floor Loft - our guests were in awe of the beauty that this venue had to offer. Connie was amazing to work with from the first time that we viewed the space right until the end of our wedding night. We couldn't have pulled this day off without her help!
This venue is the perfect mix of historical Detroit with a modern twist that brings the city to new light for those who don't get to visit often. We were in love with the space so much that we couldn't even bring ourselves to over-decorate and hide what it already had to offer.Sent on 10/30/2019
Madison's reply:We're still thinking about your ceremony arch, Nicole! Thank you for bringing your family here to celebrate your love. We were so happy to be a part of your special day!

The Madison exceeded our dreams for our wedding day!

We absolutely loved our wedding at The Madison. So many guest came up to us saying how unique and amazing the venue was. So many people were from Michigan who saw the city in a new light because of the Madison and that is exactly why we picked it. Lauren Jacks was AMAZING! She was so helpful and relived so much stress from the wedding day. She responded to all questions so quickly and made sure our day was perfect.

Everyone was impressed with this venue!
We booked this venue for our wedding in September and everything was amazing! We worked with Lauren and she is the absolute best! She is so helpful and the best communicator. The venue is a beautiful space and wonderfully accessible. We received 5-star service from every single staff member. They were extremely accommodating and friendly. It was such an amazing experience hosting our ceremony and reception here!Sent on 10/07/2019

The Madison was truly an absolute dream! Danielle was amazing to work with, the staff and bartenders were incredible, and, of course, the view was spectacular. Everything played out just as I had imagined it (and I had some crazy ideas). Our friends and family cannot stop gushing about how amazing everything was. It's an absolutely beautiful venue with an amazing staff -- it was perfection.Sent on 08/16/2019
Madison's reply:Hi Andrea! You were such a fun bride to work with! Thank you for the sweet note, and we hope to cross paths in the near future. XO!

Planning from a distance can be so stressful but NOT with this venue and vendor! Thank you Lauren for making us feel like we were from around the corner, for helping us easily monitor and adjust, and for making everything stress free!Sent on 07/08/2019
Madison's reply:Liz, you were such a dream to work with! The rehearsal dinner was stunning, and we're so happy you had a great time! I'm still munching on the nice snacks you gifted us. :)
Marisa · Married on 09/15/2018
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was to book The M@dison! The weather was beautiful (mid September) and we were able to do our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception on the roof top, and did a plated dinner in the loft area. Julie and the rest of the staff were very helpful and accommodating with the entire planning process. We did not need to do much in terms of decorations because the venue itself is a work of art. The bar staff was awesome as well. Would highly recommend that you check out this venue. One visit and we were hooked!Sent on 10/14/2018

Jessica · Married on 09/08/2018
We had our ceremony in the loft space and our reception on the roof for 150 guests. Lyn was great to work with and very accommodating. We planned the wedding from out of town, but someone was always available to meet with us whenever we were in Detroit. The existing decor and building architecture meant that we didn't need to provide many of our own decorations.
For our ceremony we wanted more traditional seating, so we rented 80 chairs to supplement the high top tables/bar stools and couches that exist in the space.
We had a strolling reception on the rooftop in early September. We got lucky with a gorgeous sunset, and the whale mural and view of Comerica park provided a great backdrop for our evening. Our guests were mostly from out of town and kept mentioning how cool the space was.
Looking through our pictures, having the teal wall behind the dance floor provided great background contrast and made the pictures come out awesome.
It was a little bit windy and cool so most of our guests stayed closer to the bar near the heat lamps and fire feature and on the dance floor, but even with everyone on one side of the roof we never felt overly crowded.

We had an amazing experience having our wedding at the Madison! The team was waaay more helpful than I ever could have imagined. The venue made for the most beautiful photos and all of the guests couldnt stop raving about it. I would definitely recommend using the Madison for your event.Sent on 09/01/2018
Madison's reply:Kristan, you and Blake were so much fun to work with, along with your beautiful family. We're thrilled that you shared some photos of your ceremony setup so other couples can get inspiration. Thank you so much!

This was the first venue we looked at when checking out locations for our wedding, and immediately knew this was the place for us. The views were beautiful, and the space was modern and unique. The staff was very accommodating from planning the event to the time we were there during the wedding. We worked with Connie at Bedrock, and she was wonderful and extremely helpful. As we were planning our wedding from New York, it was important to us to have a stress free experience with all of our vendors. The Madison provided a list of vendors, all of which were fantastic. Connie aided with time management in terms of planning deadlines, and we were absolutely stress free in the week leading up to the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience, and highly recommend the Madison for a beautiful, unique and stress free event!Sent on 08/29/2018
Jane · Married on 07/18/2018
We had many choices on where we could have had our wedding, and we don't regret for a single second choosing The Madison as the venue for both our ceremony and reception. Lyn was my direct contact through the entire planning process and she was quick to respond and provided all kinds of tools and great advice which helped us tremendously in our decision-making process. We also worked with a few other individuals with Bedrock who were just as helpful and enthusiastic about making sure our party was a hit. The bar staff was extremely efficient and very friendly. Our guests had the time of their lives and were very happy with the views, service, cleanliness, and overall atmosphere. I am still hearing every day how much fun everyone had! To say the evening was magical would be seriously understating the energy on the rooftop on our special night. Bedrock was also very helpful in coordinating with and assisting the other vendors (florists, photobooth company, lighting company, etc) which made things run as smooth as could be! I am thankful to have worked with Bedrock and still beaming from how amazing our evening was. It was just awesome! I highly recommend The Madison for your special event. You and your guests will NEVER forget it!Sent on 08/21/2017

We wanted a non-traditional wedding and looked at various venues around the Detroit area. Immediately after seeing the Madison rooftop we knew we wanted to have our wedding there. We knew it was a big risk if it rained, as we wanted our reception on the rooftop. Let me just say it was definitely worth the risk! We had our ceremony in the loft and a strolling reception on the rooftop and the weather (after raining earlier in the day) turned out to be perfect.Sent on 06/29/2018
Lyn was our venue coordinator, and she was amazing answering all of our questions and paying close attention to detail. We were a bit nervous with all the details that are involved especially in a strolling wedding reception, but Lyn made sure all of our requests were executed flawlessly. We decided to do a "whale" themed wedding and Lyn & the Madison building even made us a signature drink with really cute whale accessories for the garnishes for the drinks. The rooftop is hands down the coolest place for a wedding and the majority of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended. As previous reviewers have said, the atmosphere on the rooftop is nothing short of magical. People loved the casual vibe of a strolling reception and no one complained that there were not assigned seats. We were lucky to have a fireworks show at Comerica! It was the most perfect night that my husband and I, and all our guests, will remember forever.
Thank you Lyn and the whole Bedrock team for everything!! Hurry up and book your wedding here before it becomes the most popular wedding venue in Detroit1

Our wedding was beautiful here. We had a strolling event for 160 ppl in the loft and it was perfect. The pictures turned out amazing and I couldn’t have asked for more with the rooftop view for photos and the industrial vibes in the loft. The 3 bartenders were quick and no one waited for drinks. Only critical things I can say about the venue is .. the sound system isn’t loud enough so def get a DJ who brings equipment. But be advised that the loft is not that big and it will take up space. If weather permits .. the roof is amazing and spacious. Overall our wedding was amazing and the Madison is beautiful and a unique space.Sent on 04/06/2018

Shona · Married on 02/17/2018
I had such a pleasant experience with the Bedrock team from start to finish of my wedding planning adventure. Danielle was punctual, professional, thorough, caring and an absolute delight to work with. She made sure that no question was left up to fate, and really gave me a sense of Bedrock’s good intention and investment in my wedding. Danielle went above and beyond to connect with vendors and ensure a seamless load in, load out and onsite flawless execution. There is not one upset or any slight adjustment that I wish I could have made; everything was impeccable. My team, Two Unique, who worked alongside Danielle during the evening of my wedding, could not say enough good things about her easy going, friendly and accommodating demeanor. If every client is able to experience the comforting aura and in depth knowledge of Danielle’s expertise, they are surely in the best hands! I must also make a point to compliment the AV and security team of Bedrock; all team members were extremely welcoming, seasoned and at all times, professional. I would highly recommend any upcoming social and corporate clientele to book their future celebration at The Madison!Sent on 03/13/2018

Erika · Married on 09/02/2017
My husband and I both worked in the building previously and we first met there, so I couldn't imagine a more perfect place to host our wedding. We were married at the Madison over Labor Day weekend, and everything was absolutely extraordinary from start to finish. Our coordinator, Dana, was exceptionally responsive and helpful and she and her assistant Lauren were both so kind and fun to work with. They both made planning our wedding a pleasure. The venue itself is second to none in Detroit: the views are incredible, the space is unique (so many great photo ops!), and it's right in the middle of everything downtown. Our guests had a blast and were wowed by the location, and even our vendors were impressed (our DJ said it was the best venue he's ever played!). It was everything we could have wished for and more. We'll remember our beautiful wedding night forever, and we couldn't have been happier for it to take place at the Madison.Sent on 09/09/2017

Maria · Married on 07/16/2016
I don't know if I can find the words to bring to life how much we LOVED our wedding at The Madison- but I will sure try!Sent on 04/20/2017
We had our ceremony on the 5th floor industrial space and it was so intimate and unique. The backdrop of floor to ceiling windows with The Fox Theater behind us... I mean come on! The space fit roughly 120 guests for our ceremony and everyone loved it. I'm bias, but our pictures turned out awesome!
Having our reception on the rooftop was absolutely amazing! It helped that we had perfect weather, but honestly I don't know how we could have beat this environment. The space is made for a strolling dinner and moving around throughout the night. Anyone dreading a seating chart? No worries! The Madison allows you the flexibility of your guests deciding where to sit or stand for dinner. Having Comerica Park as a backdrop honestly is hard to put a price tag on. We were lucky enough to have our wedding on a night where the Tigers had fireworks after the game - We got some absolutely breathtaking photos on the roof during the fireworks.
For flowers and decorating, we chose to stay low key and use the city as our backdrop which was the right decision for a lot of reasons. Out guests LOVED taking pictures with the city behind them and no one missed having large table centerpieces. That said, the rooftop is a blank canvas that you can easily transform into anything your heart desires.
Our wedding coordinator really appreciated the prep space and accessibility of the building and its amenities which really made her life easy.
I will share that we received Thank You cards after our wedding! So many of our family and friends said "This was the best and most unique wedding we've been to. It wont be beat!"
We are so incredibly thrilled with our decision to have our wedding at The Madison.
Madison's reply:Man, Maria, would you like to join our team as a Madison Ambassador? Haha! This review gave us goosebumps, and it's our venue! We so appreciate your take on our venue and hope every couple enjoys this space as much as you!
