Easy, comfortable, and perfection!
I worked with Carla the entire time while planning and Staci for the day of. They made our special day such an easy day!Sent on 08/27/2019
The food was nothing but simply delicious and the staff during our meal was great. We had the chance to use the campus for our pictures and go where ever we needed to go to capture the perfect picture! The entire staff go above and beyond to make sure everything you dream of for your wedding comes true! By far, my easiest part of my wedding planning because of how quick and understanding Carla was when ever I had a question! I would turn blue in the face recommending them to anyone who asks where to hold their reception! I can't stress it enough! 💕

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

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.Sent on 12/12/2018
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.
