GET TO KNOW THE ELOISE
Hi! We’re Ben and Stacey. Husband and wife and owners of The Eloise. We’re both natives of Wisconsin and love everything to do with hosting memorable events.
The idea to build a wedding venue in Southern Wisconsin started back in 2016 while planning our own wedding. The venue search was a very frustrating and defeating process for us. We had a really hard time finding a venue that fit our style and vision but also allowed us to customize the experience for our guests.
After all the wedding celebrations ended and we returned to our post-wedding lives, we couldn’t stop thinking about building a wedding venue. It took us about six months after our wedding to realize our crazy idea to build a venue was turning more and more into a passion to bring a functionally designed wedding venue to Southern Wisconsin. You can read more about this in our blog by clicking here.
We spent the next two years researching the design of the venue, talking with vendors and couples to understand all aspects of a wedding day and how that relates to the functionality of a wedding venue. We know there are SO many moving parts to consider when it comes to your wedding day and we incorporated all your must-haves and needs when designing and building The Eloise.
We wanted to make sure The Eloise was designed to flow naturally with the timeline of a wedding day, was elegant and modern yet had a neutral canvas so couples could express their unique styles, and would be a great space for photos. Because at the end of the night, all you have are the memories, great stories and photos so we knew we needed a space that would make it easier for photographers to capture all those forever memories.
What sets The Eloise apart from other wedding venues in Wisconsin is that we specifically built the venue for weddings. We took the time to thoroughly understand what a venue needs in order to be functional (and elegant) for our couples, their guests, and vendor team.
We put our heart and determination to make this crazy dream a reality and know you will feel the love, passion, and dedication we have as their venue team.
We can't wait to have you become an Eloise couple and share in your special day!

"Working with Ben and Stacey made wedding planning SO easy! They are always very happy to help and answer any questions you may have. They were also very accommodating of the fact that my husband and I live out of state and helped us out with lots of video calls. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and all of our guests had an awesome time. Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy yourselves, and we also loved the getting ready suites. Awesome venue, even better people to work with!" - Kiah A
"As a bride who also happens to be an event planner, I often thought about what my dream wedding would look like. However, when it came to a wedding venue, I did not have a dream venue in mind. When I stepped foot in The Eloise, that changed & it instantly became my dream wedding venue. The elegant, bright, airy & modern design of The Eloise is a perfect backdrop for any wedding day. It's beautiful, but not in an over-done way, so it really allows the details to shine. Ben & Stacey were great to work with, and even in the uncertainty of planning a wedding in 2020 & 2021, I always knew they were in our corner, not only for our wedding, but for the beginning of our marriage. The included amenities including the getting-ready suites and tables & chairs are top notch, superior to many other venues in Dane County. Their bar packages provide flexibility to meet the needs of your guests, also something that is rare to find at other wedding venues. My husband & I cannot recommend The Eloise enough - the perfect venue for your perfect wedding day!" - Sarah M.
"We had our wedding on 06/04/22 and it was more than I could have imagined! The Eloise is open, bright, clean, and customization to your wedding vision, which is rare! Stacey and Ben made the planning process smooth with their checklists, open communication, online portal and their ability to jump on a call whenever you need! You can tell Ben and Stacey love being venue hosts :) If I could do it all over again I definitely would!" - Hannah S.
"Best wedding venue in WI! We can’t say enough about Ben and Stacey and the Eloise. They were amazing to work with from our very first visit. They are so organized, thorough, kind, and respectful and they do everything possible to make your day as amazing as it can be. Their venue is absolutely beautiful and they keep it immaculate. It looks brand new for your day and both we and our guests loved it. The venue has so many options for setup and the indoor/outdoor setup was perfect for our day. It's clear why they won best venue in WI this year. 10/10 would recommend!" - Jared K.
