Yes, Yes 100x Yes
Hiring the Stella Hotel and Ballroom for our reception was one of the easiest decisions during our wedding planning. After touring hall after hall and never feeling the spark, I met with Yvette and I knew that the Stella was the place for us! Yvette communicated openly and honesty about their expectations for the Stella and all their plans for the building once it was done. Even without seeing the fully finished product I knew that our day could not be done anywhere else. Yvette was a pleasure to work with during the booking process and I cannot wait to see how we are able to work together to make the wedding day perfect!!Sent on 11/08/2018

Dream come true!!
The Stella Hotel was the first venue my fiance and I looked at, we knew right away that it was our dream reception venue. This is a true ballroom with beautiful chandeliers that you don't see a lot these days. This venue gives off a historic feel and is in a perfect location in downtown Kenosha. Yvette was such a pleasure to work with and we are so excited for our big day!Sent on 01/30/2019
