    Highly Recommend for a Wonderful Downtown Wedding

    We were married at South Second on May 31, 2019, and we are so happy that we did! We wanted our wedding day to be easy, beautiful, and fun, and that is exactly the experience that Michelle and South Second provided. We held our ceremony on site, and afterwards it was quickly converted into a dinner/dancing space for about 200 guests. The food stations catered by Saz's were top notch- our guests raved about how great the food was and how much they had to choose from! The Saz's Festival Platter for late night food was even better than at the festivals- and VERY popular! Having guests travel from rural Wisconsin, they were worried about parking "downtown Milwaukee", but were amazed at how easy it was to street park around the venue (although we did consider renting a parking lot, it was not needed). The bridal suite was a great place to get ready, and the natural light is good for the photographer to get some nice pre-wedding photos. Our guests also loved hanging out on the patio through the garage doors! Overall, we would highly recommend South Second. Michelle was outstanding during the preparation, and was there on our wedding day to see that things went smoothly- she even made us our first drink! Thank you, South Second!

    Exceeded Expectations

    My daughter had her wedding at South Second just this past weekend and guests still can’t stop talking about it! We worked with Michelle and she was wonderful especially the day of the wedding! She made sure we stayed on our timeline, she found pens for people to use to sign the guestbook when we forgot them, she helped me place flowers on the cake when I was nervous and she personally delivered drinks of choice for me and my husband and the bride and groom right to our table. She floated around the room to make sure the day went perfectly! She was amazing!

    I can’t say enough about the atmosphere and the food. All night people came up to me saying what a cool venue South Second was and how pretty it looked. They were also impressed with the cleanliness. The bartenders and waitstaff were the best! Our guests never had to wait for food or drinks at the bar and service was given with a smile. The food was also A+! I’ve had SO many people tell me it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding!

    My daughters wedding couldn’t have been better! Thank you Michelle and the entire staff at South Second for truly making it THE BEST DAY EVEr for my daughter and new son in law.

    Kris, this was the most amazing day! Thank you and Kaitlyn for being such a dream to work with. I can't imagine how this could have come together any better than it did. We appreciate all the love! xo Michelle

    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!
