My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at Cuvee in December. Nadia, the event manager, was a huge help with everything and did a great job calming our nerves throughout the planning process. Cuvee went through a couple of event managers during our time planning the wedding, which made it difficult to keep track of information for a bit. Once Nadia came on it was smooth sailing, however we did have trouble getting confirmation to hold our rehearsal at the venue. We were unable to confirm our rehearsal until two weeks before the wedding. I'd recommend going into this venue knowing that you may need a plan B for a rehearsal venue.

The venue offers day-of options for set-up and tear down of decor, or you can opt for a full service day-of coordination package. We went for the full service and it was the best decision we made. The package includes decor set up, tear down, and a full timeline set up and run by Nadia. She coordinated the rehearsal and ran the entire wedding night. Not to mention made all of our ideas for our winter candlelight wedding come to life. If you're looking for a venue with a beautiful, warm Milwaukee feel, this is the place to go. And definitely pick up the full-service day-of package, it will save you hella stress in the long run!

Cuvee featured the perfect atmosphere for our wedding: fancy and polished, but not stuffy. We initially booked with the owner Kris who won us over with her professionalism and attention to detail. Two different wedding coordinators came on during the ~16 months before our wedding and were quite good. Nadia, who was the coordinator at the time of our wedding, was wonderful at leading us through the details and letting us set up a bit the afternoon before. Because of the beautiful space, we didn't have to go crazy with decorations, which was also a plus.

Cuvee is lovely. I'm so happy we had our reception here. It was a little daunting to go through so much staff turnover (from the point we signed the contract to the point of our wedding was 13 months and they had 4 venue coordinators in that time) but everything worked out beautifully. Jennifer is courteous, kind, and professional. I didn't have any interaction personally with the owner (Kris? I think?) but my day of coordinator said she is pleasant as well.
My only small gripe is their lack of flexibility surrounding the bar. I get it, weddings are their bread and butter so they have the right to set their own rules but it was such a pain that they wouldn't close the bar during dinner so that we could extend our package a bit longer. 99% of wedding venues will have the bar open for cocktail hour, close during dinner while people are seated and eating, and reopen after dinner for dancing, etc. Cuvee will only allow "continuous" bar service...so if you want a bar package from 6-12, you are paying for 6-12 even though barely anyone is drinking during the dinner hour from 7-8pm since they're in a different room and settled. It seems like a giant waste. We even announced that the bar would still be open, but again, once everyone is settled and eating and talking with their table they don't want to get up, leave the room, order their drinks, and come back.
But, really, that's my only negative. I would absolutely recommend Cuvee as a venue overall. My family and friends raved about it!

If you end up booking Cuvee for your wedding ceremony or reception, likely it will be because it is a beautiful space and perfect for a group of maybe 100-175 guests. Ours were so impressed with the look of it- they loved the huge bar with lots of seats and booths, the exposed cream city brick, the included mahogany chairs, and the way it felt intimate without being crowded. Overall, we really loved the space. That being said, a big part of what we remember about having used Cuvee was the frustrating process leading up to the big day. In the 13 months from when we booked and the actual day, we had 4 - yes, 4! - different event coordinators. And NEVER were we notified that the coordinator had changed - we had to infer from the fact that our emails were suddenly being returned by a new person. They were incredibly inflexible when it came to bar options (you get the choice of 4 cheap wines and Miller Lite or High Life) and only honored our consumption bar package for us when we put up a huge fight, since it was an option when we booked (and then was removed later without notice). They even advertise that you can choose champagne for your "special celebration" but then theywere annoyed when we asked for it and said we could only do the "house bubbly," whatever brand it was. Jennifer never did get our floor plan correct. Despite my emailing many times about it, I would ask for 16 tables and get a reply with 18 or 14 tables or a reply stating that I had never sent her my desired plan (untrue). They will charge you extra for set-up and take-down anyways, so I would highly recommend bringing in a planner or day-of coordinator to make sure it looks how you want, since you can't count on who might be your contact on the wedding day. Overall, we got really tired of having to argue constantly for what we wanted, for the lack of professionalism on the part of the staff, and it really left a bad taste for us. For what they charge for the rental, we expected far better treatment.

Cuvee is a gorgeous wedding and reception site! We were very pleased with how the evening turned out. We were kind of hesitant coming into the evening not ever meeting the event coordinator as she was new. But Jennifer did a fantastic job, keeping me and my husband informed. She worked great with our caterer and DJ to make sure the night went on without a hiccup! And I can honestly say not a thing went wrong, and if it did it was taken care of before I even knew about it! I would highly recommend Cuvee as a venue! And one last thing the bartenders ROCKED!! Thanks so much again for all your hard work!

My now wife and I had our private ceremony at Cuvee in July. Nadia was very accommodating in not only carving out time in their busy schedule to make it happen for us, but also throughout the planning process. We had looked at everything of similar taste such as the Pritzlaff...but the accommodating service and pleasant atmosphere had us sold. The venue is riddle with old Milwaukee charm such as Creme City brick and an overall industrial vibe which was well curated. Thus our photos ended up looking like a thoroughly planned magazine photoshoot with very little actual planning. The fees seemed steep at first, yes, but once the day arrives and everything is in place, it was worth every penny. We'd suggest everyone have their small ceremony at Cuvee but we rather be the only ones with the cool photographs!
