$11k - $14k For 100 Guests

The Stella Hotel & Ballroom is a beautiful wedding venue located in downtown Kenosha, Wisconsin, that serves the Milwaukee and Northern, Illinois region. Once the Heritage House Inn and Elk’s Club building, harkening back to the early 1900's, this venue is now home to a unique, historic full service hotel, featuring a stunning two story ballroom, which is ideal for weddings and unforgettable photography opportunties.

Facilities and Capacity
The Stella Ballroom can host up to 230 wedding guests for receptions, as well as host engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, and bridal showers. Natural lighting illuminates the ballroom for a bright, open space where couples and guests feel very comfortable. Both couples and guests will not only enjoy the scenic views of the surrounding area but also the rooftop bar, the Crow's Nest. The hotel’s main restaurant, the 1844 Table & Mash, features unique tasty dishes and provides guests with local and craft beer and cocktails. The Cafe at the Stella restaurant is a great option for breakfast and coffee, featuring Seattle's Best Coffee. Adjacent to the ballroom are doors that lead you to the outside deck, where only you and your guests can enjoy the outdoor fresh air.

Next to the ballroom, the Stella also offers a private bar for the wedding guests which can accommodate up to 30 people.

We also offer 68 guest rooms and 12 suites to accomodate the wedding couple and over night guests.

    AMAZING! Highly recommend!

    The Stella Hotel and Ballroom was absolutely perfect for our wedding. The venue is stunning and requires minimal decor, it’s perfect on its own. We did lot of florals, and the ballroom was classy, romantic and timeless. The staff and coordinator, Jordyn, was so wonderful to work with. She made sure every detail was thought of, and I had no stress because I knew everything was being taken care of. She checked in with me throughout the planning process, and was so organized. The food and drinks were amazing as well. I love that the food, linens, cocktails, hotel rooms, ceremony … (everything!) is all in one spot and things ran so smooth. We had our dream wedding, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. I highly recommend the Stella. If I could do it again, I’d pick the Stella over and over.

    The most magical wedding venue straight out of a magazine!

    Words cannot describe how happy I am with our wedding at the Stella. First of all, it is a stunning venue. There is a certain elegance to it that I did not feel at any other venue I toured. The bridal suite is picture perfect! Food delicious. Lighting phenomenal. We loved that there was a private balcony for those needing some fresh air. The private bar is large and open.

    The staff was fantastic. Jordyn, the event coordinator, was an angel to work with. She was so responsive and did everything she could to ensure a smooth day. I even saw her clearing off plates at the reception -- talk about commitment! Everyone was a joy to work with and I would recommend the Stella any day.

    One Stop Shop!

    We could not have chosen a more perfect venue for our wedding. From the catering and events team to the actual ballroom - everything was PERFECT. We used the Bridal Suite which was the cutest space to get ready in and doubled as a great space for wedding party pictures. We held our entire wedding in the ballroom which was so convenient. The ceremony space seamlessly transitioned into our sweetheart table and then the dance floor while all of our guests were able to hang out at their dinner tables. We have gotten SO MANY compliments on the food since the wedding - everyone loved their cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres and plated meals. The Stella is seriously the perfect one stop shop for a wedding! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
