Ward 3 Media
We bring your event vision to life.
Our passion is to create experiences that you and your guests will remember forever. For us, that means working closely with you to understand your vision and unique ideas. Our talented designers are obsessed with events and take pride in every detail, including your menu and every nuance of design, so you can relax and enjoy your perfect event.
The Zilli Hospitality Group of today started in 1968 with a 13-stool ice cream stand on Grandview Boulevard in Waukesha, WI. From these humble roots, the company has grown and evolved into what has become southeast Wisconsin’s premier catering company.
Each year, ZHG executes hundreds of weddings, corporate and social events at dozens of venues throughout the greater metro area, including seven exclusive venues. One thing that hasn’t changed is our passion and commitment to excellence.
Committed to Milwaukee
We believe that Milwaukee events should celebrate and benefit the Milwaukee community. That’s why we proudly source many ingredients from local farmers, collaborate closely with leading local event professionals, and provide support to locally-based nonprofits, including Roger’s (behavioral health), The Phoenix (addiction recovery), Courage MKE (LGBTQ+ support), and many others.
Your taste is our inspiration. We work closely with you to create a catering menu that reflects your unique style. Our skilled chefs use the freshest ingredients to create dishes that are both delicious and visually stunning. We also offer a variety of dietary options to ensure that everyone at your event will enjoy every bite.
At Zilli, we don’t just provide food—we create experiences that you and your guests will remember forever. Our team of caring event professionals will handle every last detail of your event, from your menu to the place settings. So you can relax and enjoy your special day, knowing that everything is taken care of.
Pursuit of the Extraordinary
Since 1968, we have never settled for less than extraordinary. Flower walls? Custom neon signage? Mid-century décor? Flowing champagne and crystal flutes? If you can dream it, we can make it happen—we’re excited to hear your vision.
We’re proud of the work we do. And we’re honored to be recognized by our industry and our community.
Our guests say it best. We are thrilled to have received 300+ five-star reviews and counting.
Let’s make it happen.
We’ll walk you through every step of planning.
