The Milwaukee Public Museum

Many of us have visited the Milwaukee Public Museum at some point in our life – whether on field trips as a kid or maybe on one of your first dates with your now fiance. According to Jim Zilli, president of Zilli Hospitality Group – one of the top wedding caterers in town – the MPM can really conjurer up fond memories, which is why many couples choose it as their wedding ceremony and reception venue.

The MPM has a fantastic partnership with Zilli Hospitality Group which allows for a couple’s imagination to go anywhere when deciding how to feed guests at your wedding. Imagine walking through the Streets of Old Milwaukee while peering into the window of the Sausage House and being served a Zilli’s Spicy Sausage and Leek Wellington appetizer.

Photo ops abound at the MPM – where else can you get your picture taken with dinosaurs, mummies, butterflies, a European Village, and the patio of a Japanese house! The fun couple below definitely took advantage of MPM’s photo ops. Photos courtesy of JG Photography.

Mitchell Park Domes

Many of us have visited The Mitchell Park Domes at some point in our lives but may have never thought about it as a wedding venue. But really, what better place to have a wedding ceremony and reception among some of the most beautiful flowers and greenery in the city – even in the dead of winter.

A few years ago, the Domes were renovated to include a new exterior and colored pixel-lights in the Show Dome – which also now includes a paved walkway. The Domes is a perfect wedding reception location to facilitate food stations, which can be set up throughout the space.

Zilli Hospitality Group also has a partnership with The Domes, so you know your food will be fantastic. Check out some of these breathtaking photos taken of weddings at The Domes.

The Pritzlaff Building

The Pritzlaff is a bit different from the above venues. This space is truly a blank canvas and begs for the creative mind to dream up a fantastic way to use this historic Milwaukee location. There are so many options with a space like this!

With it’s arched windows, Cream City brick, and open space, the Pritzlaff is classic Milwaukee. Per their website, the Pritzlaff is “Milwaukee’s oldest, new venue.”

Check out these images of the Pritzlaff from the open space to the executed design. Photos courtesy of Front Room Photography. Check out Pritzlaff website for more info on hosting your wedding here.

  1. I have another spot that may not be known at all as a wedding venue space, but is available as one, and hopefully will be utilized more and more! The place is called Sweet Water Organics, located in Bay View. It’s mostly used for the organization, which does indoor organic farming called aquaponics, but one of it’s factory spaces is left open for event rental, along with an adjoining garage space great for a cocktail hour or staging.
    Very tall ceilings, peeling paint and new murals, factory ceiling lamps and huge windows, garage doors… you can even use the conveyor belt for you buffet service… a new kind of “rustic”. I am having my own wedding there October 13th, which the great Kim from KB Image will be taking photos of!! The chosen caterer will be using greens and fish from Sweet Water Organics in some of the appetizer and buffet items, which is completely organic, so it all will go together nicely.

    I don’t know of many pictures available of the space dressed up for a wedding, but I imagine there will be great ones from Kim after 10/13.

    Check it out! 🙂

    • Hi Marisa! Thanks for the awesome info. We met with Kim a few weeks ago and she mentioned your wedding. How cool!! We definitely look forward to the pictures when they come out and would love to feature them on 🙂

      I’d love to hear more about the space – shoot me an email if you’d like to chat further. Let us know the location specifics (seated / cocktail reception size) and we can add it to our venue listings. Thanks again!

  2. Bless you, Marisa! I’ve just called about seeing the Sweet Water space…

    I was just at a wedding there and the venue doesn’t even comes close to the pictures and venues you have on this website. The bride told me how much they spent on the wedding and the whole time I was thinking “What the heck did they spend the money on?” It was really strange, maybe I’m just not into receptions in factory spaces. My friends and I, however, did have a great laugh about it. I can’t imagine having my wedding reception there. I actually was a little embarrassed for the couple because the place was so strange to say the least… Unique yes, but not in a good way
