We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding day! It went smoother than we thought possible. We are still awaiting final photos, but based on the sneak peak are positive they will turn out spectacularly! Guests were allowed to roam through all three domes with drinks and appetizers. Several of the guests commented on how nice the displays were. The caterer, Zilli Hospitality Group, was wonderful to work with. The food was exceptional during the tasting, and the same delicious food was served on our wedding day! We could not have been more pleased with the quality of the appetizers and dinner. We opted for buffet, which was a great option for us and our guests. The bar was stocked as promised with no shortages.
The Domes have been around since I was born. It is truly a Milwaukee Landmark! So beautiful in each dome with the sunlight streaming through the glass on all the beautiful flowers, cactus and the seasonal show dome flowers. I love that place! It’s a great place to just walk around enjoying the view, and relaxing on the benches they have periodically throughout each dome. If I ever got married, that’s where I’d want my wedding pictures to be taken. It IS breathtaking!
The venue was beautiful at night. The food was delicious and the staff was very accommodating. We worked with Angela at Zilli and she was such a big help. Liked her and the food so much , we booked with Zilli for our other daughters wedding. We had a lot of out of town guests due to the fact my daughter was and her husband is in the military/ We had so many compliments from our out of town guest on the venue and of course the food. It was perfect evening .
