We just booked the Villa Terrace for our wedding venue and we couldn't imagine a more perfect place for my Fiancé and I to get married. They have been nothing but helpful with suggestions for our big day and I can't wait to see their team in action.

When my fiancee and I found Villa Terrace, we knew it was "The One". The space is unique, beautiful, and cozy yet timelessly elegant. I always said that if I could have a destination wedding, I would go to a villa in Italy. With the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, we found my dream locale just a couple hours away from home!

The grounds are gorgeous, the view of the lake is stunning, and the architecture/layout of the building is extremely versatile. We rented the venue for the whole day and had our first look, ceremony, and reception there. The ceremony was on the terrace, the cocktail hour in the courtyard, and dinner/dancing took place inside the main room. There was a side room for the bar, and the library became our photo booth. We really got to use all of the space!

The staff at Villa Terrace was warm, friendly, and accommodating. Leading up to the event our questions were always answered promptly, and on the Big Day we didn't need a day-of coordinator because they took care of all the behind-the-scenes work.

We (the bride and groom) were elated with our flawless day, and felt so happy to have provided a fun, classy, and extremely memorable evening for our family and closest friends.

Thank you, Villa Terrace!

I recently got married at the Villa Terrace and, honestly, it was just perfect! I spent months and months looking for the perfect venue and that search stopped the minute I walked into the VT. Not only is the venue gorgeous — the building itself is beautifully preserved and the courtyard and gardens are unrivaled in the area — but the staff was so helpful and accommodating. The only reason this isn't a 5/5 across the board is that it is on the expensive side and the museum itself doesn't close (meaning random people are milling about while you're setting up and getting ready) even if you rent the venue for the entire day. That being said, I don't regret a penny spent on this venue.

The Villa Terrace speaks for itself. I think it is the most beautiful and classy place in Milwaukee. The cost was affordable, especially with Charles Allis reception combination package. Staff were very helpful in planning our event and were very accommodating to us.

Our wedding at the Villa was amazing! We were blessed with perfect spring weather, and they had the gardens just about complete the day we were there (they were set to officially open the next day). The staff is very accommodating and will go the extra mile in order to help you get what you want or help you figure out a way to get what you want but still respect their rules (as they are a museum, they do have a few rules). Just for example, the neighbor next door was running a wood chipper right before our ceremony and one of them went over to ask for them to stop for our ceremony, and later on they went literally running to check if the elevator to get down to the bottom of the gardens was working/open the gate for us to be able to go in through the gate to take photos. The contact we had with the Villa during the planning process was great and always available for whatever questions I may have had.
I had a hard time picking the Villa in the beginning just because of the price (which isn't necessarily bad, but if you are trying to be on a strict budget can be a splurge), but overall the beauty of the Villa and the gardens was more than worth the cost.
I also think it is a wonderful place in Milwaukee for those who want to have a small wedding -- we had about 60 people total for ceremony and reception and it was the perfect amount of people for the space.

The Villa Terrace was stunning. All of our guests were in awe and still can't stop talking about it. The venue was exactly what we wanted it to be; so beautiful that we didn't have to dress it up ourselves.

Our only complaint was that the staff was more hands off, and they weren't extremely helpful. They are a museum first and an event venue on the side. The staff was friendly and accommodating - they let us come in early, which was great - they just were not the most helpful coordinating all of the vendors. They were also contradictory about how late we could have music playing outside at night; even changing the time that was in the contract we initially signed, making us stop the music earlier than we had planned.

Spectacular views of Lake Michigan with unique architectural details and colors. Your photos will turn out amazing!!! Book a year in advance for the best June dates. Staff were helpful and flexible in allowing our vendors into the venue early for set-up due to the presence of the street closing for a city-wide event. Best for small weddings (max 125 guests for seated ceremony outdoors or 80 guests indoors for seated dinner)

The Villa was STUNNING and perfect for our brunch reception. Even though it was very early spring and there wasn't much green, it was a fabulous backdrop. I'm convinced I would not have liked another venue as much as the Villa Terrace. I tell everyone about our wedding and how perfect the Villa Terrace is.

We had nothing but good experiences with the staff at the Villa. They were very relaxed but on-point. We believe they lived up to the cost of the venue (plus way more!). They are good people.
