The Domes (Mitchell Park Conservatory)
The three horticultural domes at Mitchell Park Conservatory offer diverse and distinct spaces for corporate events and weddings hosted in Milwaukee. The domes are filled with lush floral elements, striking succulent landscapes and winding paths all enclosed by a soaring glass terrarium ceiling. The stunning backdrops compliment any event held here that is sure to entertain and amaze guests.
With diversity in plants, landscaping and horticultural architecture, the domes each bring the same intrigue and beauty while offering their own unique personality. The arid climate of the desert comes to life in the Desert Dome, showcasing the resilient and striking plants that thrive in that environment. The Floral Show Dome changes each season and displays immaculate floral arrangements inspired by different regions and themes. With bright, colorful birds in addition to plants, the Tropical Dome overflows with color and exhibits the verdant plant life known to tropical regions.Take a look inside
With three different themes, the Domes offer a gorgeous space to hold your wedding or reception. Each entertain up to 500 guests, but they each have distinct characteristics.
Floral Shower Dome
This lush, flower-filled terrarium celebrates a new historical, cultural or fantasy theme with each show by entirely transforming the space with themes like Italian villa, Spanish hacienda or Williamsburg mansion. The Floral Show Dome is ideal for those who want to be surrounded by beauty and inspiration on their special day, enjoying the winding paths, gazebos and enchanting floral arrangements.
Celebrate in the deserts of Africa, the Americas and Madagascar, surrounded by towering cacti and palm-covered paths winding throughout the dome. A captivating Dragon Tree, one of many interesting features of this venue space, can be found on the “island” along the path.
Filled with vibrant plant and flower species and tropical birds, the Tropical Dome is your own personal rainforest for your truly unique ceremony or reception. The verdant plant life will enchant guests along with the lush colors of the foliage and flowers.

We had our wedding and reception here and it was beautiful! The set up was perfect and the food was AMAZING. Deanna and Roxanne were very helpful and supportive the day of the wedding, by stopping by to ensure everything was going well, taking pictures, and capturing the moment with us. I also want to add that the level of effective communication and patience displayed was phenomenal. Deanna and Roxanne were very attentive to emails, and phone calls and maintained professionalism at times when I’m sure our 1000’s of questions made them want to pull there hair out, so we appreciate you guys! We’d also like to highlight that they were very nonjudgmental about our decisions and provided us with many recommendations to assist us in narrowing down other wedding planning details such as; photography services, bakeries, hotels, and DJ services. The Domes is a beautiful place to have a wedding and the services provided by Zilli Hospitality was very professional and is greatly appreciated.
All I can say is Wow! Working with Jessica P and the team at Zilli Hospitality Group, Adorn and The Domes was wonderful!!! Not only did my daughter and her husband have an absolutely beautiful wedding reception, but we actually had fun along the way and enjoyed the planning process! ZHG made it easy with their very clear selection and pricing information (and our Chicago area friends who have planned weddings were very jealous of the very reasonable prices we paid for such excellent quality!). The tasting dinner was a fun event all by itself and we all agreed that no matter which dishes we had selected, they all would have been good. But, sometimes the food on a larger scale and buffet style is not as good as at a tasting – but for our event, every bite was just as good as what we had at the tasting!
Having the Domes and Zilli host our reception was the best decision we’ve ever made, aside from getting married 🙂 The Domes has such a unique experience for guest to be able to wander through all 3 exhibits throughout the night. The catering team at Zilli completely transformed the lobby to the perfect size area for our seating arrangement in a way that you wouldn’t even recognize from the daily lobby look. The Domes are beautiful but Zilli’s team did all the impressive work. The staff was always on top of their game and constantly pleasing all the guest with their fast service and attention to detail. I will forever rave about their amazing work!!
