Took All the Stress Away
It sounds cliché, but it's not: if I could give Bemis Conference Center 6/5 stars, I would. Planning a wedding during Covid-19 (and from another state) was full of unknowns. The staff at Bemis (Carla & Anna especially) made everything as stress-free as possible. They were very communicative throughout the whole process, very knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to provide as much direction as they could at a time when most everything was out of everyone's control. I'm an alum of SNC, so I was already familiar with Bemis' quality of service, but my husband was also really impressed by how beautiful the space is and how nice everyone was. Again, I can't say enough good things - they handled an extremely tough circumstance with ease and were a great help to us. I highly recommend this venue to any future couple.Sent on 03/24/2021

Amazing Wedding Venue
My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better experience thanks to the staff at F. K. Bemis at St. Norbert College. The staff was always professional, timely, and kind when answering questions and helping us to figure out small details for our big day. Our families kept commenting on how amazing the evening was and how accommodating the staff was to us and our individual needs. In particular, Pam and Staci were amazing to work with! We will recommend F. K. Bemis to anyone who has an upcoming wedding!Sent on 10/29/2019

Perfect planning, staffing, space, and day!
We had the opportunity to work with Carla for most of our planning. She was so accommodating in helping our vision come to life, but also offered up her own insight when we had questions (and we had a few!). We were able to even come in the day before the wedding at set up the space, taking away a lot of stress the morning of the wedding! Every step of the planning was prompt and followed up, so there were no surprises. Carla was actually invited to the wedding, so Staci worked the event the day of. She was so helpful and easy to talk to. She really helped keep the flow of the evening going as we had some timing deadlines with the photographer! I had attended weddings at St. Norbert and always thought it was such a beautiful space, but after hosting my own wedding there I know it is all because of the wonderful staff they have working there!Sent on 09/16/2019
