    Great experience

    Had my wedding last weekend and we can’t stop thinking about how wonderful it was. The venue really is magical. The staff was amazing they accommodated us to bring in our alcohol the day before and let us store all our decor. The recent renovations to the bathrooms and bridal room were a great surprise. I will recommend Madison’s to any future bride!

    Extremely awkward experience

    My fiancé and I were SO excited to come tour the venue- it's beautiful with so many options for ceremony, cocktail, and reception. Our appointment was for 4:30, and we showed up at 4, thank goodness, as there was a wedding starting at 5 pm! Guests had already arrived, and the wedding party was having photos done. Our tour was very rushed with little opportunity to explore the spaces or ask questions since a wedding was literally about to start. We were mortified to be intruding on a couple's special day, and had we stuck to our appointment time (4:30-5pm) we would have left as their ceremony started. I would also add that they have no liquor license or on-site kitchen which poses significant logistical and quality concerns, which were brushed off. Many things mentioned on the site as being included, like plates, linens, bar service etc are not actually included in the price.
    Maggie was very prompt at following up with emails and to help us set up the appointment, however the overall vibe of the venue was disorganized, frantic, messy, and disappointing. This place is gorgeous and I hope they get their act together.

    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!

    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 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 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

    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!

    Ridiculously terrible

    I won’t lie this venue is beautiful, it’s what caught and held our attention in the first place. It was a bit expensive but we thought it would be worth it. We were mistaken. When we signed our contract it was $9000 and we were supposed to get an open bar with bar tenders. We also had a list of preferred vendors to go with. Over the year of our engagement the venue tried to change the contents of our contract 3 times. They would no longer provide an open bar and stated we needed to get our own alcohol our own permits and pay additionally for them to hire bartenders. They also believed they were entitled to $11000 instead of $9000. They removed services, decor that was promised they even tried to tell us that the catering company we went with from the original approval list was no longer allowed because they once again changed their minds. We had had enough at that point and demanded they at least allow our preferred caterers without additional charge. They weren’t happy but agreed and tried to get us to sign a new contract with them… not gonna happen. Throughout our dealings with them they continued to change things they shouldn’t have and always seemed confused about policies, what they provided and what they didn’t and were generally rude and unpleasant to deal with. They were absolutely useless and didn’t even clean the venue for us until the very night before our wedding. The day before our wedding we were setting up our decor while they gave tours and allowed random people to sit at our set up tables and messed up some of our decor we found old half eaten cake in the DJ box, beer cans in the garden and general mess. The day after our wedding when we were cleaning up our left over decor they told my husband he had to move a planter and that they wouldn’t do it. When my husband finally asked them “what do you guys even do around here?” They shrugged and walked away from him. They also tried to keep our empty alcohol bottles from the night before saying they didn’t know where they were. My husband left and I called them and they miraculously found them in the back. We only got back half the beer cans with them saying our guests threw them in the garbage and did we expect them to go digging in the garbage for them? Even though we knew our guests did not throw them out (there were no garbage cans at the venue except for small ones in the bathroom) We were beyond done with them. I truly hope no other couple will have to deal with their nonsense the way we were forced to. Another thing to watch out for is that they prefer cash or etransfer and will charge you extra to pay with credit…. Seems a bit like a tax evasion to me but that’s just my own speculation. Just be carful of their scams. If you want to avoid a constant headache choose a different venue.
