Working with Micayla in the months prior to our wedding was super helpful. She is extremely kind, detail oriented, and went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was a hit! I would highly recommend a wedding at the Monona Terrace- their staff was so kind, knowledgeable and our decor was handled with care. Thank you so much for making our wedding incredibly memorable!!! Micayla- you are the best!

We went through the Monona Terrace for our wedding ceremony and reception. They do all of the catering in-house so it was nice to not have to worry about finding a caterer in addition to the venue. The ceremony was on the rooftop in the center circle and the reception was in the Community Terrace. Both locations were beautiful. The food was delicious and served very quickly. They were very responsive to any questions I had and very accommodating to any last minute changes. I can't imagine having my wedding any place else.

We had our reception at Monona Terrace and it was absolutely perfect. Wendy was our catering manager and was incredibly kind and attentive. We were planning our wedding from out of state and yet I never felt that it was difficult since she was so responsive to all of my emails. She was also incredibly flexible with regards to any changes we asked for, and worked hard to save us money where she could. In fact, everyone we worked with at Monona Terrace seemed to genuinely care about making our wedding day perfect. The food was great, the staff at the reception was attentive, and the views of Lake Monona are unparalleled.

The planner(s) we worked with at the convention center for our rooftop ceremony were excellent. They were responsive, helpful, and efficient. We worked without an independent wedding planner, so my husband and I did all the arrangements ourselves. On the day of the ceremony, everything at the Terrace was set exactly as it needed to be and we didn't have to stress at all about the venue. We were very happy about that!

I LOVED working with the staff at the Terrace. Our wedding ceremony was held outside on the rooftop center and they worked so hard with us to ensure we had the perfect day! The event coordinator, Mandy Mommaerts, was constantly accessible to us via email and phone from the moment we were making the decision to have our ceremony at the Terrace right through the day of the wedding. Everyone was so easy to work with - questions were quickly answered and I never had any concerns with choosing this location. Even when there was a hint of rain in the air on the day of the wedding, Mandy worked with me to lay out what we needed to do to ensure we had our outdoor reception. We received so many compliments about the location of the ceremony and looking back at the gorgeous pictures of the rooftop, I am so thrilled that we chose the Monona Terrace!

The views at the terrace speak for themselves. They are very professional. We were very surprised at how helpful Micayla, our room coordinator, was the day of the event. It saved us a lot of stress. The only complaint is having to wait until a year out to confirm you have the room, we had a last minute scare.
