Beautiful Lakeside Wedding & Reception - An Eventective User from Madison, WI

One must consider the entire evening when planning their wedding. Monona Terrace makes the most of the entire day. We found them accomodating to all of our needs. We had a beautiful ceremony right on the water and then enjoyed the excellent reception in a room with a view. The ceremony space was outdoors on the deck overlooking the lake. We were able to have all of the oral and musical accompniants that we requested for our service. Theceremony evening was enhanced by the location of the reception, right downstairs! Noone had to drive, let alone walk from the cocktail hour held outside directly following our service. Then the entire reception was facilitated by their excellent staff. We had a great band on a stage that was all arranged by the Terrace. There is certainly a benefit to having your service and reception at the same place. We enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere of this full-service venue. One doesn't need to worry about much with such a professional operation like the one found at the Monona Terrace
