Learn about Milwaukee
This Wisconsin city is probably best known for its German heritage, and as such boasts a solid culinary reputation surrounding beer brewing, sausage, and cheese. This mid-sized city has more on the wedding menu, however, as it enjoys proximity to many rich agricultural lands (as well as the Great Lake Michigan) and affords a wide array of farm-fresh produce ranging from summer sweet corn to fresh-from-the-field strawberries. A wedding menu in this foodie city is sure to please! Milwaukee also offers couples a unique array of wedding venue settings, as the historic Third Ward provides spacious and avant-garde warehouse venues, while the downtown is filled with an eclectic collage of architecture that ranges from opulent hotels and ornate ballrooms to modern designs, such as the iconic Milwaukee Art Museum or “Calatrava” that overlooks the lake. A bride and groom searching for that “seaside” feel can find it in Milwaukee, as it’s located on America’s “Third Coast” - that of Lake Michigan - and is host to many festive shoreline weddings every summer.
