Destination Weddings, Wisconsin Style
Last Updated: 4/29/2013
Cosmopolitan cities, picturesque prairies, waterside wonders, amazing museums, and more – Wisconsin has whatever your heart desires. So why pay for airfare (not to mention the vaccinations), when Wisconsin’s own wedding destinations offer a world of fun, beauty, and romance for your special day?
Here are some of our favorite Wisconsin wedding venues:
The Enchanted Barn, Hillsdale
Make your vows in an 1880’s timber-frame barn loft under twinkling candles and wispy white shear. Then mix with your guests in the milking parlor while the barn loft is transformed into a rustic ballroom. Catering options include a “chuck wagon” chef who will cook over an open fire during your cocktail hour.
Harley-Davidson Museum, Milwaukee
As you’d expect from Harley-Davidson, the museum’s indoor spaces radiate the legendary brand’s industrial heritage and design legacy. But being in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, what you might not expect are the lush outdoor spaces, surrounded on three sides by the Menomonee River. Wedding packages offer options you won’t find anywhere else. Would you choose the Motor Oil Beer, Gasoline Beer, or classic champagne toast?
Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Madison
The MMoCA rooftop offers more than alluring views of Madison’s skyline. It features stylish architecture and the rooftop Fresco restaurant and sculpture garden. Wedding rentals at MMoCA also include the lobby – with its black granite floors and dramatic glass staircase – and a 230-seat lecture hall… not to mention the backdrop of world-class modern and contemporary art.
Lambeau Field, Green Bay
Yes, all you die-hard Packers fans, you can have your indoor or outdoor ceremony and wedding reception at the legendary home of the Pack. Lambeau Field offers a long list of wedding options, including the Atrium Floor, MVP Boxes, the Tundra Tailgate Zone, and the Remmel Press Room. Imagine your guests receiving their invitations to Lambeau – you’re sure to become the family favorite, and a hero among your friends.
Cold Water Canyon, Wisconsin Dells
Dells Boat Tours will take you and your guests on a private double-deck cruise up the Wisconsin River to Cold Water Canyon, where, in the shady ravine, a historic stone pavilion awaits. This 1939 building has been renovated for ceremonies and receptions, so you can say, “I do” and then party into the night. Meanwhile, guests can come and go on a boat shuttle service, with torches along the riverbank lighting their way.
These are just a few examples of how much fun your Wisconsin wedding can be – to plan, to celebrate, and to remember forever. You can find many more Wisconsin wedding ideas on TravelWisconsin.com.This entry was posted in Romance and tagged Accomodations
