Waukesha and Milwaukee Wedding Receptions

The Rotunda, a beautiful Milwaukee area event and reception hall located in Waukesha, has now
been restored to its original grandeur, taking its well-deserved place
as one of the premier event facilities in southeastern Wisconsin.

Rich in history, amenities and luxury.  The Rotunda can accommodate up to 250 guests in classic style.




The Rotunda wedding venue features a grand dome, highlighted by beautifully hand-painted walls. The upper mezzanine, also newly transformed, allows your guests a beautiful view of the room below. Also available in the upper mezzanine is the hospitality suite. Perfect for not only ceremonies and receptions, but for any occasion as well. Guests of honor can prepare and relax with the utmost style and privacy.

Outside, your guests can mingle while enjoying cocktails and appetizers on the veranda and front steps. Small bistro tables line the space, bringing a bit of the elegant interior outdoors. With a great view of the hall in all its grandeur, the generous front stairway provides an ideal background for photos.

Ceremonies:  Share your vows with your closest family and friends under our elegant & romantic stained-glass dome.  The Rotunda presents an intimate setting for your ceremony.

Setting:  Photographs are one of the most important keepsakes from your wedding.  Complimenting the gorgeous ambiance of the newly renovated dining room and mezzanine, we also offer a beautiful landscaped setting outdoors.  Our grand veranda presents a charming and unique backdrop for bridal party, family, and group photos, as well as cocktails and mingling for your guests after the ceremony.  In addition, located just one block from The Rotunda is the scenic Riverwalk, a paved path along the Fox River that allows pedestrians and bicyclists to travel through downtown, is an ideal location for stunning outdoor snapshots.

Attractions:  Waukesha’s historic downtown district is ever changing & developing and offers a variety of cultural and lively activities to complete your event weekend.  Your guests can grab a cup of coffee at one of the charming coffee shops within walking distance of the Rotunda and peruse the art galleries & shops.  Whatever you are craving, downtown Waukesha has a restaurant that is sure to tempt.
