Our experience with having both our wedding at Old St. Joe’s and reception at the Bemis Center was truly top notch outstanding!! Everything from the service, food and bartenders were amazing! We had the Sicilian Experience buffet which was absolutely delicious. The staff was very polite and was right on top of things to get dinner served and cleaned up so we could start our dancing festivities. I also want to say that the campus was such a beautiful setting for pictures. We had great weather so our guests where waiting for us on the patio with drinks. We will never forget this day. Pam, Carol (music planner for church) and all of the staff at St, Norbert’s definitely made this a memorable day! We highly recommend! Gregg & Gina Gentile

Wedding at Michels Ballroom
Everything for our wedding day was perfect!!! We got married at Old St. Joe's, and our reception took place in Michels Ballroom. We could not have asked for anything more, and I'm still receiving compliments about how it was the best wedding food some people have ever had. Seriously, everyone LOVED it! My Dad was very impressed by the tenderloin carving station too.
Everything was exactly how I envisioned it. Being able to set up early on Friday, was a huge help and weight off our shoulders so we could just enjoy the rehearsal dinner. The staff was all awesome and very attentive all night, and huge thank you to Abigail for putting up with our CRAZY family and friends.
It was the perfect day, and I can't wait to get all of our pictures back to relive it. Thank you again to Carla, our event coordinator, for making the planning of everything so effortless. I could not have imagined having our wedding anywhere but St. Norbert.

St. Norbert was amazing to work with. They made wedding planning and day of wedding so easy and it had such a nice flow. Everything was so easy and beautiful in the Michels Commons Ballroom. I am truly grateful for all that they did to help us have the most perfect day! Small details, such as votive candles, were included with the room and that really set the room and was something that we did not have to worry about! We couldn't have asked for a better day and reception! Would work with St. Norbert again and definitely share with others!
