Amazing team here at the Madison! Brittney was my coordinator, and was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I reside in New York, but I am orginally from Ohio so we had our wedding at this location. Brittney assisted me in planning my wedding while out of state. She was very flexible in planning meeting times, as I had to travel to OH/KY to plan when I had free weekends. I am so grateful to Brittney and the Madison team! Our wedding was amazing and all my guests keep talking about how beautiful it was! I even had a guest say it was the event of the year! Thank you so much Brittney and the Madison team that was apart of the Fleary wedding! I will recommend to everyone I know getting married.
The Madison was a wonderful choice for our wedding. I don't know what I would have done without having our event coordinator Dwight there on our wedding day. He took care of everything I needed and things I didn't even think of. I could not have had a more perfect day and that was all due to the amazing staff at the Madison. We held our ceremony there and it was gorgeous- so easy for everyone to just head downstairs to the reception after. The food was amazing- our guests were all raving. We chose to do a dessert bar vs. cake and everyone loved it. The bourbon bar added a special touch to our day. We couldn't have been more pleased. Ashley was our coordinator and she helped me with all of the planning was so responsive throughout the process. I could not have asked for more.
We just had our perfect reception in the Madison Ballroom. We came in a week after getting engaged and were hooked from the first time we spoke with Ashley Bangi. She was very relatable, understanding, and accommodating. She put all of our fears at ease and made it a truly pleasant experience. She was incredibly flexible, which was very important for this Indecisive Bride. She made everything so easy! The night of was AMAZING! Our Team Leader Tabitha was INCREDIBLE. She made sure my groom and I had drinks in hand if needed, got us more from the buffet so we didn't have to get up and wait in line (which we did NOT mind doing!). The whole team was fantastic, very on top of timing and making the night go smoothly. If there was any kind of problem, we wouldn't have even known! THE MADISON IS AMAZING!
I am still hearing from people that said it was the best food at a reception they have ever had.
I always heard your wedding day goes fast, and I was amazed at how fast it actually went. The Madison staff was amazing and kept us on time, which is key on days that fly. They went above and beyond all throughout the process, and I highly recommend them to everyone.
I am so glad I had my wedding/ceremony at The Madison! Everything was perfect and they made sure our day was special and amazing! I would highly recommend the Madison!
Having our daughters wedding and reception at the Madison was the best decision hands down. Ashley was extremely easy to work with and did a great job guiding us through the whole process. The day could not have gone smoother. Every single person was helpful and accommodating. The Terrace was beautiful for the wedding and the reception in the Emerald was amazing. The food was awesome- everyone commented on the food! Decorated beautifully! We loved every thing about the Madison!
My whole wedding experience was wonderful! Candice helped me plan every detail with ease (which was hard some days since I did not live close.) Now let me tell you about Jake. I cannot say enough amazing things about this man and his event team. He kept me calm, helped me relax, took care of everything my husband and I needed, and even cleaned and packed all of our décor and chargers! I had forgotten to move my car to the center for décor loading and this AMAZING MAN and his AMAZING TEAM walked all of my stuff down to Hotel Covington without any of my friends or family lifting a finger. My guests were commenting on how they were taken care of by Jake and his team and were blown away by the customer service.
If you want a seamless planning process, OUTRAGEOUSLY good food, and to have you and your guests completely pampered on your day then book the Madison Event Center and request Candice and Jake!
We had an amazing experience having our son's wedding/reception at the facility. Everything was perfect! Jake was incredible managing the entire evening and the wait staff was attentive, kind, and professional. The food was so good (everyone thought so.....so many complements) and my son and his wife were treated like royalty.......they loved it! If you're looking for a venue to have your event at, look no further than the Madison because they will take excellent care of all your needs. We even had a couple come in very late (through no fault of their own) and I asked if we could make a couple of plates of food for them (the food had been taken away at this point of the evening) and without hesitation I had two plates in my hands while he loaded them with food (which was kept warm in the warmer) so as I laid the food on the table for our very hungry guest, I was quickly followed by the waiter with utensils & napkins.......amazing!! The whole event without issues....just perfect!
This place is amazing. Candice was my coordinator and she was extremely professional and answered all of my questions in a very timely manner. You get day of coordinators on the day of the wedding and these people make everything perfect. They all did their best to service and check in on everyone. This place went above and beyond to make our special day worth every penny. I truly cannot recommend this place enough.
We really appreciate the effort and personal attention we received from the entire waitstaff. Big thank you to our event captains Darren Rose and Ashley Fossitt. Not only did they take care of everything they also took the time to talk with us, get to know us and make sure everything was running smoothly.
Big thank you for assisting my grandfather with getting the cake set up and if he says the place was impressive then it must be true.
We 100 percent recommend the Madison and you will not be disappointed.
The Madison was the best to work with! Being an out of town bride they were quick and very responsive to any questions I had no matter how big or small. The venue and the services they provided were the best we found on the market. We had our reception in The Emerald Ballroom which provided the perfect ambience and size we were looking for. We would highly recommend The Madison for your big day!
We could not be more please with the how amazing our reception turned out, how friendly and responsive all the staff members were, and how accommodating everyone was to our requests. Ashely, was our wedding coordinator and we absolutely loved her! She was so easy to work with and made all of the wedding planning a lot less stressful. Thanks to everyone at the Madison Event Center for making our reception so memorable!
Hands down the best decision we made for the wedding was to book with The Madison! We booked our wedding almost a year out and ended up switching event coordinators due to the original girl leaving (both were amazing and helpful). Not sure how other brides are, but I had SO many questions and was constantly emailing Jessica and then Lindsay Rogers (our event coordinator when Jessica left). They were both quick to respond, even during evening hours and holiday breaks. I was really impressed with how quick they were to help!
In addition to the helpfulness of the coordinators, another great part was we had to do nothing besides pick what we wanted and drop off additional decorations if we wanted. I had helped my sister with her wedding two years ago and it was all DIY and all stressful. Having it at The Madison was no stress at all because they did everything and truly were all-inclusive.
My guests loved the venue, the bar, the food, and the late-nite breakfast that we included! The day-of coordinators were just as wonderful and helped everything go off without any hiccups. Dwight helped with our ceremony and Ashley helped with our reception. I don't recall the name of our bartender becasue Ashley was constantly getting me drinks (I literally didn't have to do anything on the wedding night besides say "I do" and that's it)!
If you are looking for a beautiful, classy, and elegant venue - book The Madison. If you are looking for easy, no stress, and fun - book The Madison. Seriously, I don't have anything negative to say. They decorated, they made the food (which was amazing - definitely try the goetta bites and the brisket), they even packed up everything at the end and loaded it in the car.
Hands down, greatest venue I could have asked for for my wedding night!
We booked this place four weeks out from our wedding date after our previously booked venue cancelled on us. It could not have gone any better. The staff is incredible, food was spectacular and I really can't say enough great things. The Madison made this the best day of our lives. It is worth every penny.
We 100% recommend The Madison. They delivered a first class, picture-perfect wedding. Ashley, our event specialist, was helpful, responsive, and easy to work with. Jake, our day-of coordinator, was incredibly professional and went above and beyond expectations to make our wedding as seamless as possible. Planning was so much easier because their package pricing includes things like centerpieces, linens, champagne toast, complimentary parking, etc. The Taste & Toast event (complimentary dinner and drinks prior to the event) was wonderful and made us even more confident in the food, service, and staff. Several guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding and were very impressed with the ballroom and overall décor. It could not have gone better, and we’re so happy we chose The Madison.
My feyoncé and I have decided to book with the Madison Event Center. We have been working with Candice and she has been wonderful! She is quick to respond to any questions either of us have, very professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely kind. We would recommend the Madison to anyone who asks! It's a beautiful reception AND ceremony venue! The prices are fair for the many perks there are to being a Madison bride.
My husband and I absolutely loved the Madison. I can't think of anything but positive things to say about this venue. Every part of the process was made easier by getting married at the Madison and they were extremely personable. I felt like they knew exactly what they were doing because they had done it hundreds of times before but still felt very special! The reason that we went with the Madison in the first place was because it's mainly "all-inclusive", that is to say they have the tables, chairs, linens, decorations, bar, drinks, food, buffet, vases, votives, etc. You really don’t have to book a TON of vendors and there's not much to bring in for your reception. We loved that we only had to bring in the items that personalized our reception and not all the "basics". We chose to do our ceremony and reception at the Madison and it was absolutely perfect. It was easy for our guests and for us! The ceremony was just as beautiful as the reception. I would recommend the Madison to anyone looking for a wedding venue! They do such a wonderful job that you can really focus on what makes your wedding day so special and leave coordinating the details up to them!
Absolutely beautiful. Lindsey Rogers was our planner. She is amazing!! My daughter was married in 2016 and the reception was at The Madison South. Emily's reception was beautiful. When her twin, Patrick, became engaged we knew we wanted to look at The Madison for the rehearsal. I can not say enough about the venue and the staff.
We loved The Madison! We had our wedding in The Loft and our reception in the Grand Ballroom and it was the best wedding experience. Our wedding planner handled everything. I'm a very "Type A" person and I was able to sit back and enjoy the whole process! The night of our wedding ran so perfectly. I have had many people compliment that it was the best wedding they've ever been to!
My husband and I chose the Madison as our venue for both our ceremony and our reception. The whole process was so easy and so fun. Candice Rain was our coordinator up until the event, and she was outstanding. For the price and everything they offer, it was easily the best decision I made during the whole planning process. Our day went off without a hitch, it was picture perfect in every way! The rehearsal dinner and day of team were phenomenal. They answered every question and allowed the ceremony to go so well! If I had to do it again, I'd do everything at the Madison in a heart beat. The food was wonderful, decor perfect, and the staff was outstanding. Highly, highly recommend!
The Madison was absolutely amazing. We brought in a lot of our own decor with a certain vision in mind and the Madison staff nailed the set up. The food was amazing and tasted the exact same as when we first tried it. The grande ballroom was gorgeous, fit 240 of our guests comfortably and looked better than what we could have imagined. Ashley was the absolute best to work with and I know everything looked perfect and went so smoothly due to all her hard work. She always responded quickly to my questions and gave me some of the most helpful suggestions. The staff the night of the wedding was exceptional as well! My husband and I never had an empty drink in our hand and after boxing up all of our decor for us they even went next door to Hotel Covington where we were staying to help us drop if off in our hotel room. I am so thankful we chose the Madison Event Center for our special day!!
My husband and I originally wanted an outdoor, rustic/”grungy” wedding, but living in Cincinnati, we knew it wasn’t a great idea, especially for early October. Once we saw the Madison we both knew we found the perfect location for our wedding. We were married in the Terrace which is amazing without having to bring in additional décor. It was the perfect amount of rustic/grunge (exposed brick walls and ceiling) while still romantic and very warm. Once we saw the Grande Ballroom for our reception we were completely sold. It was different from every other venue we visited and it was spacious enough for our huge families without seeming too big.
Not only were the ceremony and reception spaces amazing, but the team at the Madison was just as awesome. Ashley was such a help while I was having breakdowns over napkin color choices (the struggle was real) and throughout the entire planning process. If we ever had a question, hesitation or new idea she was there with a quick response and trying her hardest to make our day perfect for us. Both Tabitha and Josh were GREAT during the ceremony and reception. They made sure we had what we needed at all times and always had a smile on our face! We could not have asked for a better venue and better individuals to work with. You can truly tell they care and your big day is just as important to them as it is to you! On top of it all, the food was unreal. Our guests commented multiple times how fun and different our food choices were (we were able to do all night appetizers verses a sit down dinner and had a mini burger/buffalo chicken bar that came out later in the night). The drinks were just as good as the food. I can honestly say there is not one thing I would have changed about the entire process with the Madison!
I absolutely loved having my wedding ceremony and reception at The Madison. During the planning process, wedding coordinator couldn't have been more helpful. She was attentive, quick with responses, and so willing to work with all of our special requests. The food was incredible. The chef worked with our many requests: gluten-free, vegetarian, food with very little spice/seasoning for our elderly guests who can't handle many things. We have gotten so many compliments on it. Our DOC couldn't have been more helpful. We had monsoon rain and brief power outages leading up to the ceremony, but she kept everyone calm and things moving along. During the reception, she was working nonstop to give myself, my groom, and our parents anything we could have needed. I definitely recommend The Madison to all brides and grooms.
Our son and daughter-in-law had their wedding reception at the Madison Event Center in the Crystal Ballroom in September, 2016. We appreciated the pre-planning, including the food tasting, which gave us plenty of options from which to choose. The food, service and atmosphere were great! We had such a wonderful time and are so thankful for the Madison staff for all they did to help the bride and groom and all of us to have such a special, memorable evening.
