    We loved our wedding ceremony at the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center!! The views were spectacular and the space was gorgeous!! All of the people who we worked with were extremely friendly and accommodating to meeting our needs. This place should not be overlooked! I would host another event there in a heartbeat!

    My experience with the Sailing Center was wonderful. I could not have asked for a more beautiful place to host our reception. The setting is stunning, the building itself is such a cool facility, and all of the staff I worked with were flexible, professional, honest and went above and beyond to be helpful.

    It was such a joy to get to have our celebration here, and the views of Milwaukee and the lake, especially with the skyline at night, are unparalleled. I can't say enough kind things about this organization.

    Our original coordinator left a month before my wedding. He was great and I loved working with him. Despite emailing the new coordinator several times, she was unresponsive. I never actually saw her during the rehearsal or the wedding or at all. Her assistant was there to help though.

    Zilli Hospitality is the only caterer allowed on this beautiful venue. The venue is lovely but not worth the heartache that I am going through due to the caterer.
