We stayed here the first time to check it out for our wedding. I fell in love with the magic of the place, so we selected it as our wedding venue. We chose their top wedding package, because we liked the idea that we could have all of our friends and family stay at the hotel and have the place to ourselves without time constraints. It was truly the best day of my life. Our ceremony was beautiful, the dinner was great, and the party was so fun. People have been talking about it for months, and many of my friends have said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. In addition, the staff is just amazing.
My one complaint was how it was handled afterward. I sent a thank you email to Madrona's wedding planner because we had such a wonderful experience. I never received anything back - not a thank you, not a glad you liked it - nothing. I received lots of thank you notes from the other vendors that I worked with for the wedding, and it just seems kind of strange that they wouldn't even be appreciative of the huge amount of money we spent with them.
But we do look forward to going back for many anniversaries to come!
