We love lots of the venues & vendors we get to work with through Cora Flora Studio and wanted to start highlighting them for you!
This venue, Grace Center, is actually where MR and I had our wedding reception... and yes, I did the flowers!
I like to think of Grace Center as a hidden gem. It's a beautiful, light filled venue with a sweet staff located in downtown Milwaukee. It's affiliated with Grace Lutheran Church, but you don't have to get married in the church to rent the hall. We had 200 guests (the space can hold up to 250 for a sit down dinner) and it felt full without being too crowded. At 200 guests we didn't have to break down any tables for dancing.
Grace Center provides black chairs, but we opted to bring in our own rental chairs. I just really loved how the wood looked in this Scandinavian feeling space. The venue has their own bar service and a large list of approved local caterers. Basic table linens are included in the room rental and we dressed them up with napkins and a runner through our caterer (Davian's). There's about 25 parking spaces provided as well which is nice -- we gave those out to family members. I'd say this wedding venue is perfect for the hygge couple that's not 100% DIY but who are also budget conscious. Not to mention the location is hard to beat!
