    The Ivy House is THE best venue!!!

    We got married at The Ivy House on April 16, 2022. We cannot give Ivy House enough praise! Ivy House exceeded our expectations. We plan on attending all of their summer events because we are so bummed our wedding is over. I came across this venue early in my planning stages. I fell in love with it before I even saw it in person. We’re also fans of Walker’s Point neighborhood so that was another plus. We intended on a summer wedding originally, but this is a popular venue that books far out in advance. They only had a date in April & October. The April date happened to be our six year anniversary, so we took this as a sign!

    Abby showed us the venue originally, but did not end up being our event manager. We really liked Abby so this bummed us out, but we were more than happy with who ended up being our event manager. Sarah is AMAZING!!!! (Honestly, I don’t think there is a single person working there that isn’t.) Sarah was helpful from the minute we met her, and continued to be for every aspect of our wedding. She responded to everything in a timely manner, and with such reassurance and positivity, that it calmed me down in my most stressful moments. I need to move on with this review, otherwise I won’t stop gushing about her.

    Everybody who worked our event was truly terrific. The bartenders whipped up lots of our signature cocktails and were extremely diligent to anyone with a special role in the wedding (bride, groom, wedding party, parents, etc.). Special shout out to our favorite bartender, Nick! Everything about this venue is gorgeous - from the live ivy plants to the huge bridal suite we all thoroughly enjoyed. My bridesmaids and I were able to use the suite throughout the day and arrive very early to start the getting ready process. The outside patio was a great additional space for people to enjoy later at night. Our ceremony space was everything I envisioned it to be. Everyone involved in set-up and tear-down did an exceptional job. There are a lot of moving parts in a big wedding, and the Ivy House staff is exactly who you want by your side to make it all happen. We are still sad our wedding is over because it was truly the most magical day of our lives. Anyone thinking about it, get married here. THANK YOU IVY HOUSE - WE ARE OBSESSED!

    Wedding venue

    Ivy House is probably the best venue in Wisconsin. Not only is the outside patio so pretty with all of the greenery, plants, and ivy, but the 360 bar, fireplace, and other decor give it a cozy vibe as well. The inside is STUNNING. The natural ivy is growing so much (even in the year planning process it was growing a bunch!) and the overall design is just beautiful. We toured Ivy House back in Feb of 2020, which even then things were booked up because they are so popular. COVID hit, so we halted our planning for a bit. Sarah and the team have been nothing short of LITERALLY AMAZING for me and Ty this entire year and a half process. She was great at keeping communication and answering our questions through that point as well. She helped keep us updated as dates opened up (from COVID backup dates).

    She made our special day run SO smoothly, and handled the changes that happened last minute so well. We had to completely nix plan A and go to our rain plan last minute (thanks weather), and the team already had the inside set up just in case we needed it. It was a seamless transition and she helped me stay calm and make a pretty tough last minute decision, easy. All of our guests, family and bridal party had only the best and amazing things to say about her and the entire Ivy house staff. Thank you doesn’t even do it justice for what y’all did for us. I know the day was perfect and we all had the best time, thanks to you. You all have been the absolute best venue team to work with.

    From the moment we toured, to the end of our night, Sarah killed it. Her personality and communication was one of the reasons we were so attracted to Ivy house, let alone it’s sheer beauty of a venue. Our guests could not believe how stunning it was. I also was told how attentive the team was during the reception, not only to me and Ty, but to all of our guests and that means the world to us.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!
