"The venue was breathtaking. The food was spectacular.
... It was an event that I and many others will never forget."
-Kathy S., Mother of the Bride

MMoCA is Madison's premier venue for wedding ceremonies, receptions, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners year-round. MMoCA’s outdoor Sculpture Garden combines the rustic feel of an outdoor wedding with chic sophistication, and Madison’s skyline serves as a one-of-a-kind backdrop for a one-of-a-kind day.

Featuring bird’s eye views of the Capitol, colorful garden beds, and large-scale outdoor sculptures lit by the starry night sky, MMoCA is one of Madison’s architectural gems and the perfect spot for all types of celebrations. 

Our sophisticated, modern spaces—from the rooftop sculpture garden with its stunning views of the Madison skyline, to the lobby and Fresco dining room—provide the ideal spot for couples to express their creativity, originality, and style.
