I had my wedding at the Villa Terrace in November 2017. The wedding was indoors and beautiful! My entire family was happy with wedding and thought everything was beautiful. Our wedding size was about 85 people and the venue was the perfect size. The staff was very accommodating. We had an off season wedding and got a great deal, the best deal in Milwaukee for a venue out of every venue.
