    Great Venue

    We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at the Pfister Hotel - and it was amazing. The Ceremony and Reception were in the Imperial Ballroom, which was absolutely gorgeous. Mickey was our venue contact, and he was so great to work with. Mickey helped ensure the room was laid out as we requested, was so helpful with our tasting trial, our catering and bar selections. I would absolutely recommend a wedding at the Pfister!

    The Pfister Hotel's reply:

    Heidi - thank you SO much for the kind words! We are so honored you chose us for this special occasion and we are thrilled to hear you and your fiancé had a great experience planning your wedding with us! Mickey is one of the best in the city, we are so lucky he is a part of our family. Wishing you the very best!

    The Pfister Hotel is truly the perfect wedding venue - from start to finish they make the whole process so easy and enjoyable. The hotel is so beautiful and elegant, a true Milwaukee landmark. We had our wedding in the Imperial Ballroom, and it was spectacular. And because we had our wedding in December we got to enjoy their fabulous Christmas decorations as well. They assign you an event manager who also serves as a day of coordinator - we had Mickey S, and he was outstanding. From day one he was so helpful and organized, always willing to answer questions and offer advice. The Pfister catering is phenomenal, they have so many options. We did both our ceremony and our reception at the Pfister, and we also stayed at the hotel and got ready at the Wells Spa salon. Having everything in one place was wonderful, especially considering how unpredictable Wisconsin winters can be. It was also the perfect place for a winter wedding because there are so many gorgeous places inside the hotel for pictures, you won’t mind at all if you can’t be outside! We could not have asked for a better venue, I would highly recommend the Pfister to anyone.
