#MKECouples love their venues! We analyzed the searches done on MarriedInMilwaukee.com over the last year to find which wedding venues are popular with couples visiting our site.
We did this same article last year at it was a great success. A lot has changed this year as we welcome a few new venues to the top spots and had a few others fall off. Read on to see the most searched venues on MIM!
1. The Harley-Davidson Museum
We were super excited to see that weddings at the Harley-Davidson Museum have become so popular and moved up to the top spot this year! Their indoor and outdoor spaces, plenty of parking and the iconic Harley brand make the H-D Museum a must see! Photos by Front Room Photography.
2. The Pritzlaff
Pritzlaff weddings are amazing and we were excited to see them move to the number two spot on our list! We love the beauty, history and flexibility of the Pritzlaff’s four unique event spaces, and Milwaukee couples love it too. Photos by Tres Jolie Photo.
3. Anodyne Coffee – Walker’s Point
Anodyne Coffee is a very hot wedding venue, so we aren’t surprised they were the third most-searched venue on Married In Milwaukee. Their Walker’s Point location, unique space and an amazing staff make Anodyne weddings awesome. Photo by The Paper Elephant.
