Andrea and Barron 's Wedding

We had a great time and were really glad to have chosen Madison for our event, although we live in Chicago and had a lot of family and friends from around the country, Madison is a great size to give a community feeling to a weekend (everyone is close enough to get together even if staying at different hotels, etc.)

One thing to consider: check the Badger football schedule to avoid home game weekends and the convention schedule (convention and visitor's bureau)if you foresee needing a lot of downtown hotel space as we did.

Florists

Carol did a great job with our wedding flowers and was happy to work within our budget whereas other florists had indicated we could not acheive our goals within the budget we had established. She listened carefully to our ideas, and came back to us with a proposal that captured what we had said, but had a creative flair that we would not have thought of (e.g. - using colorful peppers as accents in bouquets and boutennaires!) We wanted to use a florist that practices sustainable and eco-friendly methods, and Sunborn really delivered for our entire weekend's needs.

Coordinators/Planners

Lynette was great to work with. We had clear ideas of what we wanted and she helped ensure that the vendors were collaborating and informed to execute on the vision. She was good at troubleshooting when we ran into unexpected issues and has a positive can-do attitude that kept everyone relaxed and able to enjoy the day.

Great location and easy process for us to make arrangments. Very affordable and easy to work with. (We were out of town and therefore not part of the congregation.)

People loved the location, views, proximity to State Street, the capital, our church, etc. This was the headquarters for most of our wedding party and friends, and so it had a very festive atmosphere.

Hotels/Accommodations

We were only able to obtain rooms for one night here, so fewer of our guests stayed here, but those who did had no complaints. It is very professionally managed and great for frequent business travelers who were able to book online and use loyalty points, etc.

This is classic place to celebrate a big occasion. Our only complaint is that we spent only one night here, so we hope to return for a longer stay!

The Madison Club
Madison, WI
Rehearsal Lunch/Dinner

The staff was very personable, flexible, accommodating and professional. The club is classic but not pretentious, so very welcoming to all guests. (They helped us accommodate children attending, etc.) Even though our primary contact was on family leave, everything was transitioned smoothly and executed very well. We highly recommend The Madison Club.
