Absolutely LOVED this venue. My coordinators name is Amber Celesti. She is BEYOND amazing, so helpful and actually cares about your big day and helping in every way possible. I would highly recommend The Madison Event Center. We are having both ceremony there and wedding. We chose the loft for ceremony and the crystal ballroom for the reception. This staff does pretty much everything for you and makes it so simple to plan. They do pretty much everything for you. Amber played a big role in why we chose the Madison as well. She is the most friendly, amicable, energetic and not pushy at all person. She took time to listen to our questions and concerned and i feel she really cared about us and that we weren't just a dollar sign. She did SO much to help us and was just perfect. The entire staff was very professional too. we looked at other venues and they went through everything so fast didn't really listen very well and were outrageously priced. Amber answered any question we had, after we had left in a matter of minutes. they truly care about you there and they really want your big day to be perfect and I love that about them. again I would HIGHLY recommend The Madison Event Center, especially if you want the least amount of stress possible in planning your big deal. hope this review can help I could go on for days and how amazing that place is. It is BEAUTIFUL too! Great for pictures. I can not wait !!

We had both our ceremony and wedding reception at the Madison Event Center on May 9, 2015. Our ceremony was in the Loft and the reception in The Grande Ballroom. The loft and Grande Ballroom are both so elegant and beautiful! We had so many compliments from our guests, many saying the Madison was the most beautiful venue they had ever been to. We had originally planned to have our reception in one of the other ballrooms at the Madison but after seeing the Grande Ballroom we fell in love!! It was worth the extra money to us.! The food and beverages were great as well! We planned our wedding from out of town and did not get a chance to do a taste testing before hand. We went with the Madison's recommendations for food choices and it was all delicious!! Many guests complimented on this as well. The staff at the Madison were great from the start!! Our event planner Robbin was on top of things throughout the entire planning process! She was easy to work with, very sweet and provided answers and suggestions to all of our questions. Our rehearsal and day of coordinator Sharon was awesome as well! She helped things run smoothly at the ceremony and catered to us during the reception! We never had an empty drink in our hands!! We have no complaints or regrets regarding the Madison and are so glad we choose this venue!! We would definitely recommend the Madison to anyone who wants a beautiful and awesome wedding!!

Where can I begin to share how amazing The Madison was for our daughter's wedding! As parents of the bride, and our first experience with wedding planning and the fact that we lived out of town, we thought this was going to be a very difficult challenge for us! This couldn't be further from the truth though. Brittney Lee was our planner and she was simply AMAZING! When they say they're all inclusive, they mean it! From the beginning, our initial search for a venue, after checking out three other places, The Madison was hard to compete with! The Emerald Room was the perfect choice for an elegant wedding reception. Since we were working with a specific theme, we chose to use our own décor; however, their centerpieces would have been beautiful as well. The organization and planning that Brittney walked us through was second to none. If we had a question, she had a specific answer or "looked into" it. Brittney also had some recommendations for a florist (Blossoms) and renting an extended dance floor as well. We couldn't believe how detail minded and organized both Brittney and the Madison were! This was HUGE since we were out of town. One of the best parts of the planning was that Brittney suggested we have all décor delivered to The Madison the week of the wedding and we labeled all boxes with table numbers, cake table, bridal table etc. They helped set things up the morning of the wedding as the groom and friends helped as well. Another part of the planning that was really beneficial was the tasting we attended a couple months before the wedding to help determine our menu. Our final meeting with Brittney was very detailed and she took numerous notes. We can't say enough about Brittney and all she did to make sure everything went perfect for our daughter's big day! The food was delicious as well and when we walked into the reception everything was as planned... AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL! We received so many compliments on how gorgeous everything was!

The Madison Event Center gave me my dream wedding and I could not be happier with my decision to have my reception there. Brittney was my event planner and made my planning process SO easy. She was always quick to respond to any of my texts/calls/emails and had answers to all of my questions/requests, no matter how big or small. Brittney was able to provide me with opinions when I couldn't make decisions on my own and also provided me with several recommendations for vendors around the city. The day of my wedding was like a fairytale and I truly felt that I was treated like a princess. The staff at the Madison were SO accommodating to not only me but my guests as well. I constantly had a staff member checking on me to see if I needed a drink or anything at all really - and this alone relieved so much stress off of myself. We had our reception in the Grande Ballroom which was absolutely beautiful and timeless. My guests have raved about the Madison since the day after wedding which makes me feel great. We had a large wedding (around 350 guests) and there is no doubt that the Madison was the best bang for our buck, by a landslide. The food was DELICIOUS, and they even offered a late-night food bar which was a nice surprise to my guests. Bottom line is choose the Madison, choose Brittney, and choose the late-night slider station :)

My daughters wedding took place at the Madison Event Center. Her wedding was everything we dreamed it could be. Elegant but very affordable. The Madison staff did such a fabulous job in both the planning and the execution of the ceremony and reception.

Our event planner was on top of everything during the 8 months we were planning for the wedding. The night of the ceremony and reception our event coordinator Carla was fabulous.

Do also have to add that the food was wonderful as well.. So many of our guest commented on how good the food was, and that they went home stuffed :)

I am more than pleased with the services provided by the Madison for my Nov.1 wedding. They were very accommodating, the food and drinks were great and the staff was extremely professional. The all inclusive package made for easy planning but they were flexible enough that I could do some things on my own to make my wedding uniquely mine.

The Madison was wonderful to work with - the Grande Ballroom was perfect for our large party (250-ish), the entry staircase was beautiful - made for a very dramatic entrance for the bridal party and the bride and groom. I loved that it was basically all-inclusive.
The Madison provided the tablecloths, centerpieces, catering, bartenders (very hard-working bartenders!), and a coordinator for the night, plus a martini-type drink for everyone as they arrived as well as a champagne toast. All that was included in the Silver package we chose. Didn't have to coordinate 5 different vendors - they had it all. The valet parking was very nice, and our hotel provided a free shuttle service before and after the reception, as a perk for being a "Madison Bride". (NOTE - please remind your guests to get their car keys before they leave, even if they're not taking their car. The Madison is closed on Sunday, and they'll have to wait till Monday to get their car. The Madison made this clear to us, but I wish we'd made an announcement or put a note on the tables.) We had many many compliments on the reception, and I'd recommend The Madison to anyone.

The Madison provided the tablecloths, centerpieces, catering, bartenders (very hard-working bartenders!), and a coordinator for the night, plus a martini-type drink for everyone as they arrived as well as a champagne toast. All that was included in the Silver package we chose. Didn't have to coordinate 5 different vendors - they had it all. The valet parking was very nice, and our hotel provided a free shuttle service before and after the reception, as a perk for being a "Madison Bride". (NOTE - please remind your guests to get their car keys before they leave, even if they're not taking their car. The Madison is closed on Sunday, and they'll have to wait till Monday to get their car. The Madison made this clear to us, but I wish we'd made an announcement or put a note on the tables.) We had many many compliments on the reception, and I'd recommend The Madison to anyone. Read less

Got married there in September and could not be happier with the day our wedding went! The Madison helped with the entire planning process and gave the bridesmaids a bridal suite the day of including champagne and snacks. The rehearsal and "day of" coordinator was fantastic and made the process easy. Highly recommend Amber C. as an event planner - she was fantastic! Very flexible and easy to work with.

The food and service received many compliments from friends and family. We had our wedding in the Grande Ballroom - what a gorgeous setting! Would definitely choose the Madison if we had to do it all over again. Thanks!
