South Second Summer Wedding - Top Notch
Michelle Anderson and the Saz's team 100% exceeded mine and my groom's expectations! They saw our vision and made it come to life. We cannot rave enough about how fun the night was.Sent on 08/13/2019
We selected the "I Do" package which included hand-passed and a table spread of hors d'oeuvres, passed champagne, a call open bar package, table wine service, plated meals served with bread and salad, and late night food. It was perfect! Food is delicious and portioned well. We enjoyed each part of the package - so worth it!
The venue comes with a cool mezzanine, bridal suite, and patio for extra space. The vibe is very modern and industrial which allows for flexible canvas for all of your creative details.
The Saz's team also works so well with other vendors! This is super important when coordinating many moving parts. What a dream team - just.. wow!

We just got married at South Second on 8-3-19 and we’re soooo happy we chose South Second. The space was beautiful and chic. We wanted a low-key, minimal wedding ceremony and because the space is so beautiful, we didn’t need to do very many decorations. Michelle was incredibly patient and accommodating with my many requests, changes, and opinions. Food and bar were both amazing. All of the staff were professional, warm, and responsive. Totally recommend.Sent on 08/07/2019

Industrial MKE wedding
We were married June 8, 2019 at South Second and what an amazing day it was! We loved the space at first sight. Everything from the Edison light bulbs to the garage doors gives off an industrial, "in the city" vibe. With 175 guests in attendance, the space did not feel crowded at all. Our guests had plenty of space to move around and mingle. We had our ceremony, and then had the space "flipped" to set up for dinner. The flip happened quickly and was well organized. The food was AMAZING! Our guests cannot stop talking about how great the entire evening was. People were worried about parking due to the location being downtown, but parking was a breeze. Everyone was able to find a spot. Michelle made the entire planning process (I planned my wedding in a year) easy and enjoyable. She responds in a timely manner and keeps things on track. We are so happy to have had our wedding with our closest friends and family at South Second. The space really speaks for itself, and we loved the fact that we could minimally decorate- the space doesn't need much if anything at all! Thank you to Michelle and the Saz's team for making our day unforgettable. The entire Saz's team made sure the day ran smoothly, from the beginning all the way through to clean up at the very end. We will forever remember and cherish our special day at South Second.Sent on 06/19/2019

I have loved working with Michelle and South Second since day one! Being able to tour the space while it was still being completed and see the final product come together was awesome. Each event I attend or coordinate has been fantastic, with the entire staff always incredibly friendly and helpful. I look forward to the upcoming events at South Second this year!
As a wedding DJ you get to try all the food from all the caterers. Saz's consistently has friendly service, outstanding organization and great food. We love doing events with Saz's.
