The Madison Banquet and Reception Centre
Before I begin this Wedding Venue Tour Blog I want to thank DK Hebert Photography for providing most of the photos I am using in this post, unless otherwise stated. If you are looking for a wonderful, professional, understanding, patient and easy to get along with photographer, look them up on my website, Magnolia Court Wedding Guide under Photographers. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks to Liana & Andrew for allowing me to use their photos for this Wedding Venue Tour Blog.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Dwayne at The Madison Banquet and Reception Centre located in Broussard, Louisiana. Either Dwayne or his business partner and son, Jesse, are available to give you a wonderful tour of their beautiful and unique facility. Dwayne told me they love having the venue partly because they are associated with people who are at a good time in their lives…a wedding…engagement party…bridal shower, baby shower, etc. I totally get that! When I had my venue I felt the same way.
We walked through the courtyard to get to the front door. This courtyard is perfect for many things, one being a place for any of your guests who may want to get away from the music, to relax and visit as well as the perfect, picturesque place for your send off as the new Mr. & Mrs.

But I must say, when Dwayne opened the door to the venue, I noticed right away that not only is it extremely clean, but several things that I saw upon entering put the biggest smile on my face! First you see the most beautiful 1930’s long leaf pine floors, not to mention the gorgeous, radiant chandelier supported by the 35’ ceilings…it’s just amazing! In the venue are granite accents, wrought iron touches and high tech capabilities, to help create The Wedding of your Dreams!
Just look at this beautiful chandelier and the shiny wood floors! As well as the beautiful bride, Liana, in the photo below!
Want to transform this beautiful venue even more? The Madison allows ceiling swags, by Party Central to be hung. It’s already a wonderful place! But from the photo below you can see how the fabric just flows perfectly from the chandelier.

They do have an upstairs private room for the bride and a large elevated stage, with a spacious dance floor. This large stage provides so much room for the band, DJ or whatever else you want to use it for!

As you can see from the photo below, the bride and groom, Liana & Andrew, are coming down the stairs from the stage to enter their reception. What a wonderful shot at this first-class venue!
There is a nice bar area and The Madison has several bar packages to choose from, with their servers included. The Madison is definitely perfect for large or small weddings, engagement parties, baby and bridal showers, brunches, cocktail parties or a small family gathering. There is also plenty of parking space to accommodate your guests.
The Madison also has a kitchen included. They do not do catering, but do allow caterers if they are licensed and insured, with Dwayne or Jesse’s approval. This is to make sure that they are professional so that you and your guests will have a great experience. Dwayne and Jesse are there for you, to help you make the right decisions to have The Wedding of Your Dreams!
And if they are not booked the night before your event, they will allow you to get the venue the day before, to begin transforming this venue for your event. I also love that they allow you to bring your own vendors in! You can pick your DJ, decorator, cake baker, photographer, videographer, etc. With this beautiful venue you have so many choices on where to set up your cake, catering, sign in area, etc.
Look at this beautiful cake area that was set up for Liana & Andrew.
The cake table was made & designed by Rachael Huff with Crumble Cakery. OrderCrumbleCakery@gmail.com
I think it is wonderful that Dwayne and Jesse not only have their venue for rent but they do a handful of wonderful charities and fundraisers every year for the Boys and Girls Club Gala, St Cecilia Gala, Taste of Broussard and Clash of the Cocktails. To me that says a lot about the owners!
NOTE: If you decide to call this venue directly, please let them know you found them on my website. Thanks, Adrienne
