One of the many great things about hiring a wedding planner is having their expertise and support in sourcing your venue for the big day. As your planning partner, I spend dozens of hours researching the best venues that align with your vision and expectations for your wedding day. Whether it’s scheduling tours, identifying logistical challenges, or brainstorming ways to use the space, you are given multiple options that suit your unique needs. And after extensive research, here are my favorite modern wedding venues in Madison. 

The Tinsmith

Located within walking distance of Madison’s finest hotels, restaurants, and nightlife, The Tinsmith offers an industrial space with modern amenities perfect for the modern couple. Built in 1925 and boasting 23-foot ceilings supported by a first-of-its-time truss system, Madison’s Tinsmith features over 9,000 square feet of flexible event space. The most stunning feature is the venue’s four-season solarium which provides the perfect spot for cocktail hour or intimate ceremonies and sit-down dinners. The Tinsmith is perfect for couples looking for a one-of-a-kind experience for themselves and their guests. 

Ellsworth Block

Nestled in the heart of downtown Madison just above the iconic Old Fashioned, Ellsworth Block exudes historic charm and modern elegance. This venue, dating back to the 1870s, has been meticulously restored to preserve its architectural heritage while offering a modern-industrial option for the perfect wedding celebration. Madison’s Ellsworth Block offers exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and lots of natural light from its beautiful skydeck, offering a unique backdrop for any celebration. The venue is perfect for couples looking for a more intimate atmosphere while being close to all that downtown Madison has to offer.

Garver Feed Mill

Tucked away on Madison’s Near East Side, Madison’s Garver Feed Mill provides a flexible and creative space to bring your vision to life. Originally a sugar beet processing facility dating back to 1906, the mill has been transformed into a breathtaking community and event space that marries history with contemporary sophistication. One of the most distinctive features of Garver Feed Mill is its soaring atrium, flooded with natural light through expansive windows. The exposed brick walls, wooden beams, and industrial elements create a unique ambiance that serves as a blank canvas for couples to personalize their wedding.
