The stone exterior of this historic wedding venue makes an incredible first impression.
The stone exterior of this historic wedding venue makes an incredible first impression. A step inside builds upon that with more than 10,000 square feet of extraordinary architectural details. Every turn reveals more historical beauty with coffered ceilings, elegant chandeliers, 25ft high ceilings, and full-length windows.
The Historic Courthouse is as impressive as the day it was built in 1893. Originally erected as the Waukesha County Courthouse, this wedding venue’s recent transformation showcases every stunning architectural detail and embodies the term “historical elegance.” The renovation also gave this historical building the amenities couples need for a modern wedding.
Guests can appreciate every very breath-taking detail of this historical venue, while couples can enjoy the wi-fi, beautiful photo opportunities, and changing rooms full of striking architectural details. Brides and their attendants enjoy “The Turret Suite” with ample area to prep and savor every moment of a fantastic wedding day. Grooms and their groomsmen make a beeline for “The Vault” with a pool table, dart board, poker table and large TV.
Historic Courthouse 1893 can also host your ceremony. The venue offers three options to create a truly unique experience. What really separates this spectacular space from most is having two floors. This allows for a completely separate cocktail hour from the ceremony location and also features two bars and “Vault” rooms with seating.
Historic Courthouse’s accommodations don’t end there. This wedding venue also boasts handicap accessibility (with a drop-off and first floor elevator) and plenty of free parking spaces in downtown Waukesha. Couples appreciate the full-service experience provided by knowledgeable staff and the full line of gorgeous inclusions (i.e. banquet chairs, couches, and furniture) that makes their special day complete.
