From years of working in the City of Milwaukee both as an officiant and tour guide, I have had the privilege of meeting new people and discovering unique places that are off the beaten path. I highly recommend the following vendors for your event and guests.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Darin for many years on both weddings and other ventures. He is one of the finest photographers in this city with his attention to detail and ability to capture subjects in their best moments. I speak as both a colleague and a customer of Darin’s as I utilize his services for my own family portraits yearly.
**PACKAGE DEAL**: If you book Darin and myself for your wedding we will each take $25 off our respective totals for you. A savings of $50 for your budget!
Brewhouse Inn and Suites
What better way to have a Milwaukee wedding than having your guests stay in a brewery! The Brewhouse Inn and Suites was once home to the old Pabst Brewery with it’s design showing the building’s history. You’ll see original copper kettles in the lobby and a stained glass window of Gambrinus, the patron saint of beer. Bonuses for this hotel include a close proximity to Best Place which would make a great venue and downtown at the bottom of the hill.
Schuster Mansion Bed and Breakfast
This historic bed and breakfast is located in Milwaukee’s Avenue’s West neighborhood giving you easy access to the highway and downtown. Owners Rick and Laura Sue take extra care to provide an authentic Victorian experience when you stay with them. If there’s time make sure to experience their weekly high tea service.
Looking for something more intimate? Sangerhouse Gardens gives you the charm of a lush garden against the backdrop of an old Victorian mansion. Owners Steve and Angela invited me in during one of my 2014 walking tours in Brewer’s Hill and I immediately fell in love with the space. The owners purchased the side lot and converted it into the majestic green space it is today. This venue is best for smaller weddings under 75 people and conveniently doubles as a bed and breakfast.
Urban Ecology Center-Riverside Park
Located on Milwaukee’s Upper East Side, get the experience of a rustic country getaway without leaving city limits. Conveniently located near the Milwaukee River’s East Bank Trail take some breathtaking photos with the city’s natural splendor in the background. Perfect for the outdoorsy couple!
