Madison wedding venue closes suddenly leaving couples without a place to tie the knot
MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A couple is scrambling to find a new wedding venue after one in Madison abruptly shut down without telling their clients.
Wedding Planner Tasha Motto at Vital Image Wedding Studios, found out about the closure on Facebook Friday, Feb. 7 after she says a couple went to take a final tour last week, and no one was there and no one answered their phones.
The couple she is working with has a March 28 wedding date, and now need to find a new venue after Noah's Event Venue closed its doors abruptly.
Another family made their final payment for a quinceanera in August on Thursday, not knowing about the closure.
The closure has impacted couples across the country.
The couple whose wedding is in March has found a potential venue and there's been an outpouring of support from other vendors.
