  • The Masonic Center was a beautiful place to get married. We wanted a unique place in Madison to get married and feel in love with the building. The bridal suite was the perfect place to get ready and take pictures with bridesmaids. The close proximity to the capital & lakes made it easy to take pictures in great locations. I had many compliments about the ceremony and reception being in the same location. There was also plenty of room of parking. Lisa was great in helping us plan & organize our wedding.
