The Delafield Hotel
We knew we wanted to get married here as soon as we walked up to the front door. With classical music being piped to speakers outside (and inside) the building, we instantly felt a peaceful calm. As we continued through the facilities, we were wowed by the details: dark, rich wood, what appear to be turn-of-the-century paintings. You really feel transported in time. I read a review on Trip Advisor that described the hotel as very Ralph Lauren and we had to agree: timeless and classic. My brother-in-law’s brother is a chef in the Milwaukee area and felt so highly about the chef at the Delafield that he was married there himself. Finally, we were impressed with Nancy Pavesich’s cool and calm professionalism. We felt secure that she’d ensure the day went without a hitch. Unfortunately, about 3-4 weeks before the wedding, Nancy contacted me to tell me she was leaving the Delafield. We were very anxious, as you can imagine. But one phone call and several emails shared with her successor, Kimberlie Simmons, and all our fears were put to rest. We were told that Kimberlie had several years of experience from one of Milaukee’s top venues and it shows. Even though she was new to the processes and inner workings of the hotel, she worked quickly with the banquet manager and chef to get us answers quickly. The day before the wedding, we were finally able to meet face-to-face (as we live in Oregon) and I was immediately calmed by Kimberlie’s demeanor. In fact, I think I was at a higher stress level that day as we were trying to bring in everything for the ceremony/wedding and her few words of wisdom made me take a break and try to relax. Everything we explained to her (eg, set up of our sand ceremony items, set-up of the candy buffet, etc) was executed to perfection. The ceremony/reception went without a hitch. The staff (throughout the entire hotel) is very attentive and professional, the food was excellent, venue was beautiful, rooms were unbelievable. Another bonus is that they offer you a complimentary wedding suite.
The Delafield Hotel was perfect! Nancy, Alex and the other staff made our reception truly amazing. The food and beverages were extraordinary. They were extremely flexible in working with us on some personalized things we wanted to help make the day special. Our guests were very pleased with the reception and those who stayed overnight had such great things to say about the accommodations. If you want a perfect venue the Delafield Hotel is it!
The facility is absoulty beautiful! The employee are very nice and treat you with up most respect! I would recommend them to anyone!
Nancy at the Delafield did a fantastic job on our wedding day, couldn't have asked for better weather or venue. All of our guests that stayed over raved about the rooms and the quality of service.
We had our reception here and it was beautiful. The Delafield itself is an amazing hotel and our guests who stayed there really enjoyed it. The event space was perfect for our 130 person reception. Their staff is professional and the food was delicious. Nancy at the Delafield is great. She is very professional and knowledgeable about weddings and makes everything go smoothly. I would recommend that any couple looking for a reception site in the area check this place out.
We are so happy we chose the Delafield Hotel for our reception venue. It is an amazing place and was the perfect atmosphere for our wedding. The food was excellent and our guests had a wonderful time. Their options for food and drink are flexible which is great if you want to personalize your event. I had a last minute request for a popcorn bar at 10:00pm and the chef made it a huge hit with our guests.
If you choose the Delafield, you'll be in good hands. Nancy P. is very professional and knows her stuff. Even though she coordinates many weddings at the venue, she will make yours feel unique. When our linens did not show up, she was resourceful and fixed the problem unbeknownst to me on my wedding day.
I know that my guests and I would not have had the same experience at any other venue and I would recommend the Delafield for any couple planning a wedding.
The Delafield Hotel and Nancy Pavesich were two of the best things about my wedding, period. The venue is unbelievably gorgeous, and Nancy's expertise in this business is bar none. She made the day so much easier. The food was incredible, the service at the hotel was impeccable and I wish I could get married all over again (to the same man of course) just to do it again at the Delafield. You will pay less than you would expect for such lush setting and delicious food. Don't bother looking anywhere else, there's no better place to have your reception :-)
Extremely good value for price--we had a daytime wedding/reception, so hotel was willing to work with us on keeping prices down for afternoon reception, but still maintain the elegance that we were looking for. Nacy was great to work with!
We had the Delafield Hotel for our Reception only. A beautiful facility that offers something different from your average hotel. Nancy is a pleasure to work with, a true professional.
