Alverno College is a sophisticated wedding venue located just outside downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This college campus boasts a selection of event spaces for rehearsal dinners and receptions. The venue also accommodates wedding ceremonies in an on-site chapel. While services here are traditionally Catholic, couples of other denominations are invited to hold their ceremonies in the chapel upon approval of request. Idyllic surroundings cast a peaceful atmosphere over festivities at Alverno College.

The church at this lovely location sets a classic scene for couples to begin their exciting new chapters together. Stained glass windows, polished floors, and ornamental details provide a classic backdrop. There is a baby grand piano and organ for soon-to-be-weds' chosen musicians to utilize. The happy couple can also organize lovely floral decor to be placed along the aisle and side altars. For the main reception, there are two banquet halls on campus with a capacity for seated celebrations of up to 400 guests. Before the big day, the newlyweds-to-be and their loved ones can plan an intimate shower or rehearsal dinner in the galleria.

    Getting married in the chapel as I'm an alum of alverno. Trying to get ahold of people to discuss details is a hassle but the chapel is beautiful.
