Ceremony

First Unitarian Society of Madison
900 University Bay Drive
Madison, WI 53705

The Unitarian Church has two spaces that host ceremonies the older Frank Lloyd Wright Meeting House, and the new Auditorium. Our wedding will be held in the new Auditorium which is located to the left of the parking lot. The picture below shows you where to enter.

Parking

The ceremony location is a couple of blocks north of (up a hill from) University Avenue, across the street from the back of the Veterans Hospital and across from the entrance to the American Family Children's Hospital. The church has an adjoining parking lot. In the unlikely instance that it is full, you may park one street to the south of the lot on Marshall Court. We recommend coming a little early so that you can ensure you get a good parking spot.
