The Grace Center
Located in downtown Milwaukee, the Grace Center is a gorgeous bright location to host events. The vast Great Hall makes use of natural light so rarely attainable that city venues and the other smaller spaces reflect that airiness and quiet sophistication. Its location at the Grace Lutheran Church makes it ideal for church weddings, but the upstairs space is also great for corporate events, weddings or receptions.
Aptly named, the Grace Center’s venue spaces share a distinct elegance and grace highlighted by the copious amounts of light streaming in from the wide, high windows. The exposed rafters make the Great Hall seem infinitely larger as well as its balcony looking over the Atrium. With Zilli’s finesse and professionalism, weddings and corporate functions at the Grace Center are seamless and successful.Take a look inside

Great venue wonderful staff was able to have a stress free and very organized wedding thanks to Jeanne and her staff. Everything looked great everyone is still talking about the wedding
Grace Center was everything you could ever want in a reception venue. You are located and downtown Milwaukee. Jeanne and her staff were amazing from the first walk through to the day of the wedding. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. They even offer the use of there decor, I didn’t have enough napkins they had some. I rented out the coffee shop and Jeanne and her staff did the decorating for downstairs. The space is beautiful with not a lot of decor needed. I just want to thank the staff and everyone at the Grace Center
We had our wedding reception here in August 2017, and I can’t say enough how beautiful it turned out with the high ceilings and the big windows. Kristina and Tabitha made our planning process so easy and stress free. Grace Center is truly a hidden gem for weddings downtown.
