    Beautiful venue! Lots of floral and flowers

    The venue is gorgeous! Minimal decorations needed due to the gorgeous floral and flowers all over the ceremony and reception room! Guest loved being able to get pictures by the waterfall. The staff were attentive and we had an amazing night!

    Beautiful Venue and Team 5 Stars

    Due to some covid complications, we had to find a new wedding in less than 2 weeks. Janet and Pravin made it a seamless experience. They were kind, polite, and very professional. They went above and beyond to make our special day one for the books. They took care of everything and we did not have to feel any of the stress. The venue itself is beautiful and does not need much in terms of decor. I would working with Janet and Pravin for any of your future event needs. Best experience ever!!!

    Beautiful Venue, and Great Vendors!

    We had the perfect wedding day at Madison Greenhouse Event Venue. Everyone complimented how beautiful the venue is, and the vendors that they work with are amazing. O'Malley's Catering and Bob Hawkins Professional Disc Jockey Service are both fantastic companies. O'Malley's provides delicious food, with great portions and they were very quick and responsive with all of my questions leading up to the day of the wedding. Bob Hawkins was also great to work with, we had a number of phone calls/emails and they were also very responsive and DJ'd the night perfectly.

    The reason that I did not give Madison Greenhouse 5 stars all around, is because we did have a few struggles working with them. During our engagement, the venue switched ownership, and as a result there were a number of miscommunications and mix ups. I did have to sign multiple contracts with a lot of back and forth, and there was a team member that got my name incorrect several times on the contract that we were signing. There was also some confusion about the services that were supposed to be included in our contract, such as DJ and bartender services, which I had to correct and contact the venue about to ensure that we had those services the day of our wedding. HOWEVER, despite all of this we had an amazing wedding day and it is an absolutely beautiful venue.

    Beautiful Atmosphere!

    We absolutely loved our wedding at Madsen's! The venue is beautiful, and many guests commented on how it was the most beautiful/unique wedding venue that they had ever seen. Our ceremony was in one part of the facility and the reception in another, so we did not have to travel or wait around for set-up after our service, making the transition to the reception seamless. There were plenty of spots that were great for photos, and since it was a cold winter day (-20 C), we were glad we didn't need to go off-site for photos. The staff at Madsen's were very friendly and helpful. They let us set-up our decor the day before the wedding. They responded to emails within hours (except for Mondays and Tuesdays as those are their days off - but they reply as soon as they return to work). I would highly recommend Madsen's to other people!

    Beautiful Venue and Great Management!

    We found Madison Greenhouse Event Venue a few months before we decided to go with them. We thought that we would not have a chance at getting a date on the same year, but by some luck we were able to take opportunity of a cancellation.

    From the beginning, all the employees (thank you Shawn, Cassandra, and team!) kept the conversations very candid. We clearly understood what was doable and what was not. That being said, they went to great lengths to make sure that our requests were more doable than not. We really appreciate all the accommodations that they provided for us.

    Initially, we couldn't tell in the day time how it would turn out as our event was in the evening. But the venue really comes to life at night. The lights and the atmosphere is absolutely great. The help we received to set it all up on the day up was excellent. We had some seating plan changes made the day of and they were so helpful to provide what we needed for our special day.

    We went with the bar package as well with no regrets. We were so happy with how great the bartender was. She was clearly very experienced and professional. Highly recommended to make your life a lot easier.

    The house on the side of the venue rented as a bridal suite was amazing. Both the bridal party and the grooms party were easily able to use it to get ready. There is abundant space and has great lightning for photos of everyone getting ready. In the middle of event, we had concerns if we would be able to do our choreographed dance with the bride's wedding dress. Before our re-entrance, we were able to use the house to quickly make some changes to make sure the dance happened.

    We obviously could not have done without this venue, but more than that, we really would've been lost without all the help and advice of the employees. Thank you so much for making this day happen for us!

    The most beautiful venue in the gta

    Honestly, this review could be 30 pages in length and I still wouldn't be able to describe how beautiful this venue was. We had 100ish guests, and I think every single one commented on the greenery, the lights, the tables, the ceremony space...everything that made our wedding day special. The coordinators (Shawn (sorry if I spelled this wrong) and Kate) were so incredible, and were accommodating requests/changes up until the last minute of our day! We originally booked our date for August 2020, but then COVID hit...regardless, the venue honoured our contract until the very end! Can't say enough nice things, and would definitely recommend.

    Beautiful Venue

    We had our wedding here on February 28 on one of the worst winter storm of early 2020. However, even with the storm, it still felt like we were in tropical part of the world. You definitely do not need to do that much with this venue as it is beautiful enough. Very minimal decorations required. The owner we dealt with were adorable and very helpful!
    However, the DJ that was provided with the venue did not meet my expectations. I was disappointed as the music was not constantly playing. I had my cousin assigned as the host and we clearly had the conversation with the DJ, but instead, the DJ just kept on taking over. I felt like I could have just hired one myself. Other than that, the venue is beautifully kept! I would definitely recommend!

    Madison Greenhouse Event Venue's reply:

    Hi Kristine,

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We love to read such wonderful testimonials from our clients.

    We (Renaissance By The Creek) are the new owners of Madsen's Greenhouse, we have now introduced a new DJ and a whole lot of new services.

    We wish you a very happy married life.

    Take care and Best Regards,

    Albert FInnan

    Unforgettable memories that we made

    When I first visit to the venue and it was a wonderful feel where you could get the touch of nature with all your decors and gives you a different vibes of pureness. We requested a fairy tale theme for the event, which was perfectly synchronized . The food was delicious, while everyone on the staff was cooperative, friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this location for creating unforgettable memories.

    Not Impressed

    Yes, the venue is pretty, but the team behind it lacks communication and professionalism. The employees are ever changing and during our final details meeting, didn't seem to know what was going on. We added a bar package months before our wedding date and were told 29 days prior that they actually didn't have a liquor license, and that we would have to get license and alcohol. They also had multiple people "tour" the venue DURING our wedding. We paid for the space for a certain time frame to have a private event. They were asked to leave multiple times throughout the evening by event planners, wedding party and family, with no success or understanding of why it was extremely unprofessional, especially during a pandemic. Our guests were screened, now there were unaccounted for people at our event and we were unsure if they were safe to be there. Unacceptable, when we as a couple, put in so much effort to ensure it was a safe place for our guests.
