  • Book it before the date is gone! Jennifer is amazing! She was extremely easy to get a hold of and answered all of my questions. When we met for our final run through of everything she had questions for me on things I hadn’t even thought of. She helped us get everything together with the other vendors and I can not thank her enough for everything she did. Our day ran perfectly and it was because of her. Plus let's not forget the beautiful backdrops of the lake and Art Museum we had for our ceremony and family pictures. The beautiful location and fantastic staff make this the perfect spot to have any wedding!!
  • Beautiful inside and out. Friendly people, clean restroom and exceptional exhibits.
  • Had my wedding here on 7/22/16 and it was MAGICAL. Jennifer was so helpful every step of the way and even helped with set up. The venue is gorgeous, we had the ceremony outside and the reception inside. The price is also reasonable and they (of course) give a military discount.
  • Great memorial. Amazing views. Great place to reflect on the sacrifices our soldiers, sailors, and Marines have made.
  • Milwaukee church of christ meeting place 10am

Where to stay in Milwaukee

Staying in the city center puts you right in the heart of the activity, and means you can take advantage of all the things to do in Milwaukee’s walkable downtown area. Options here include big chain hotels as well as quirky inns. Party animals should sacrifice some sleep to stay close to Milwaukee’s lively bar scene, centered around Water Street. Those who want a little more rest should consider a scenic resort in the greater Milwaukee area; many of these are within easy driving distance of the main attractions.
