I loved the little things the staff did, such as bring myself and my husband a platter of all the hors d’oeurves when we got seated for dinner in case we didn’t get them during cocktail hour. We were so appreciative. The food was wonderful, the service was outstanding, and our expectations were beyond met! Thank you guys!
The venue was gorgeous inside. There is a large room that was dedicated for the bridal party and parents that no guests were allowed into. There were drinks, water, champagne, beer, juice before the ceremony for us and we had the room all night if we just needed to get a breath. The staff was very professional and they did all of the little things that made our experience amazing. They brought the groom and I appetizers while we were taking pictures between the ceremony and reception
Having our reception at Coast was the best decision we made. Everything was so incredibly perfect and beautiful. The food was amazing, the coordinators were accommodating, and you just can’t beat the space – indoor/outdoor seating, lake views, and in the heart of Milwaukee. This was my dream venue and it was surprisingly affordable.
