On WeddingWire since 2016

Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is a beautiful, natural setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions located just 15 minutes north of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The property sits on the shores of Lake Michigan and boasts captivating views of picturesque woods, ponds, and prairies. The surrounding bounty of nature provides couples with striking backdrops for photography and a remarkable atmosphere to suit any wedding style from rustic to elegant.

Schlitz Audubon can accommodate up to 220 guests for ceremonies on the pavilion lawn surrounded by lush trees. The venue offers an inclement weather ceremony space with seating for up to 170 attendees on the veranda, keeping your guests dry while taking full advantage of the natural, outdoor setting. Indoor event spaces can accommodate up to 125 for an intimate hearthside ceremony, or up to 190 in our private auditorium space. Full evening rentals of the venue include a cocktail hour on the covered veranda complete with bar service and dining in the Great Hall. The property’s dressing rooms include a private second-floor suite, complete with a full-length mirror and fireplace. The main reception area offers an atmosphere of natural warmth, featuring a two-story beamed ceiling, two natural wood-burning fireplaces, and a state-of-the-art audio system.

I would give 10 stars if I could!

When my husband and I toured Schlitz 2 weeks after getting engaged, we knew from the moment we walked in this was the perfect place for us. Beautiful, serene, clean, and breathtaking- this venue had it all. Everything from the ceremony space, to being surrounded by trees, the beach, it was all perfect! Bridget is THE BEST coordinator, whatever she is being paid-she needs a raise. She was so professional, attentive, and quick to reply to all my questions. Rylie and Abriana were so helpful the day of, they helped coordinate my insanely large and crazy family for the rehearsal, and made sure everything was absolutely perfect without me asking anything! They make coordinating with other vendors so easy, and every guest that attended could not stop raving about how beautiful everything was. I would recommend this venue time and time again, our wedding was absolutely perfect with Schlitz, and we cannot be more grateful.

Wedding of our dreams!

First of all the venue is spectacular. From the Ceremony and happy hour to the reception, everything was naturally so beautiful. Jessica and the Schlitz coordinators were so responsive and helpful. They organized everything we could think of for our big day. The venue and rentals add up for pricing, however, their alcohol package was very reasonable and the bartenders did an awesome job.

Beautiful Venue

We couldn't have asked to have our wedding at a more beautiful venue. All of our guests were raving about how gorgeous the outdoor setting and the event space was. Jessica and Bridget were wonderful to work with and made the whole process seamless. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing! We had our wedding in October, so the changing leaves and gorgeous outdoor photo spots made for beautiful wedding photos that I will cherish forever.
