    Perfect place for a ceremony + reception!

    We cannot say enough about the Historic Courthouse 1893! From the very beginning- they were a dream to work with! We planned our wedding from another state- and they were always understanding and helpful about planning meetings around when we would be back in town. All of our communication with the team was in a timely fashion- we usually heard back within hours. Both the interior and exterior of this building are magnificent. It was a wonderful place for our family and friends to gather and take memorable pictures. The main ballroom had a lot of "wow" factor, making it the perfect spot for a ceremony and reception. The bridal rooms made for an excellent day with our bridal parties! The space for cocktail hour was also very impressive, and had a lot of standing/sitting areas for our families to mingle! Overall, it was the perfect venue for a wedding! The food was outstanding. We're still getting compliments several weeks later about how wonderful everything tasted! They also offered a huge variety of food and beverage options. We cannot thank Eric and the entire crew enough. It was a dream wedding- and everything went so smoothly! All we had to do was enjoy our time! If you're looking for a venue in SE Wisconsin, I would highly recommend the Courthouse!!
