St. Norbert College: Old St. Joe's, Michels Ballroom, The Kress Inn

Our daughter recently had her entire wedding at St. Norbert College-the ceremony at Old St. Joseph Church, the dinner/reception at Michels Ballroom, and hotel accommodations at the Kress Inn- all on campus. We had many out of town guests and this was an attractive option for us. The seamless transition between these venues was exceptional with responsive staff all working for us. The Michels Ballroom staff (Carla, Jeremy & Alaina) were right there to ensure a beautiful, successful, and fun-filled evening for the bride and groom and all attending. Pre-planning was great with Chef Ben presenting our entree options for taste testing and available for questions. The food was top-notch and we received endless compliments from our guests. Cocktail hour was fantastic with bartenders and kitchen staff at the ready to serve all. Dinner was elegant, delicious, timely, and everything we hoped it would be and more! The reception and dance were fun and lively. The beautiful setting with large windows overlooking the lush natural campus was breathtaking. We highly recommend Michels Ballroom/St. Norbert College for your wedding venue. They helped create life-long memories for our family of a monumental event which we will always cherish!

Wedding Reception at Michels Ballroom

The communication and quality of the service from the event planning staff and reception staff was outstanding. The event space was beautiful.

The food, which was provided by SNC, was some of the best food we have ever had at a wedding. We received many compliments from our guests about the meals.

Amazing experience!

Oh my goodness! I do not know where to begin! Everything was so perfect. The food was absolutely delicious and I wish I could've ate more. The bartenders were so sweet and helpful. All of the other staff were amazing. They were so attentive and we were asked multiple times if we needed anything or if there was anything they could do. I don't remember ever needing anything as our wedding party members were making sure we had everything we needed but it was so nice being asked and feeling so taken care of all night. We will definitely be recommending St. Norberts to anyone and everyone needing an event space!
