About The Rotunda Banquet Facility

The Rotunda wedding venue is located in Waukesha, Wisconsin, which also serves the Milwaukee and Madison areas. This historic site offers couples a charming setting in which to exchange their vows. Back in 1913, this venue was erected. It was carefully constructed using Bedford Limestone, and when it was completed it served as a federal post office and then a bank. Then, in 2001, this historic site was renovated to best suit its new purpose as an elegant banquet hall.

Facilities and Capacity
While this banquet hall has been renovated over the years, it still retains its Classic Revival architecture. This provides an unforgettable backdrop for the couple’s wedding and photographs. From the moment you and your guests arrive, you will be in awe of the architectural details and craftsmanship. The exterior is quite impressive with its coffered dome, rounded shape, and stately columns. The interior is just as refined. You can host your wedding with up to 200-250 of your friends and family present. As you exchange your vows inside, you will be surrounded by elegant touches from the tired gold chandeliers to the hand-painted walls. Couples are provided with a hospitality suite so that you can all comfortably get ready for the big day. If you like, you are more than welcome to extend the reception outside on the veranda so that you and your wedding party can take in the surrounding views. This space is complete with everything you need to host a reception such as bistro tables.

Cuisine
Couples have extensive and customizable wedding catering and menu options to choose from with this Chef Jack’s Catering-exclusive property, including plated dinners, family-style, food stations, cocktail reception, buffet, hors d'oeuvres, and dessert. In addition, Chef Jack's provides a variety of bar packages. Please note there is a 125 guest minimum for Saturday events.

Services Offered
The team at the Rotunda Banquet Facility desire that every couple experiences the wedding of their dreams. Therefore, all couples are provided with the assistance of an onsite event manager to help them with planning and coordinating their wedding. All couples are also provided with furniture such as gold chiavari ballroom chairs, round tables, rectangular tables, coat racks, and more. Additionally, the team can take care of your setup and clean up to make your preparation as stress-free as possible. For your convenience, the property also has parking, shuttle, valet, and wheelchair access.

    Wonderful Wedding Evening

    The staff at The Rotunda and Chef Jack’s Catering made our wedding ceremony and reception all that we could have hoped for and then some. Our initial meetings were fun and informative, and we enjoyed learning how we could make our wedding special for us and our guests. The actual event was wonderful. The room, decor, lighting, set-up: just right. Lisa and her staff were amazingly attentive and professional, and anticipated our needs before we could voice them! Our guests were happy, impressed, and enjoyed themselves. The food stations were outstanding, and we received so many comments about how delicious everything was. What a night to remember! We had a great time. Thank you to everyone at The Rotunda and Chef Jack’s Catering.

    We were 100% thrilled with The Rotunda! The entire staff from the day we met them until the end of our reception were friendly, accommodating, knowledgable, professional, and timely in all communication. The food was incredible-we had several people tell us it was the best they had ever had at such an event. Our guests were so impressed and rated ours as one of the best weddings they had ever attended, and so much of that credit goes to the folks at the Rotunda! Well done!
