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
The Eloise was built specifically for weddings and events. The venue’s intentional design enhances the experience of your wedding and will leave your guests blown-away by the beauty of your wedding day.
To start your wedding day, you, your fiance, and wedding party will enjoy the convenience of on-site preparation with the two spacious private getting ready suites.
The getting ready suites are located on opposite sides of the ceremony area so you and your fiance can enjoy on-site preparation without accidentally seeing each other before your first look or ceremony. The large suites include keylock entrance for all day security, floor length mirrors, closet for storing wedding day items, and plenty of soft seating to keep you and your wedding party comfy while getting ready for your wedding.
We have not stopped thinking about how magical our day was. We have gotten so much positive feedback from so many people about how beautiful the Eloise was and how great the staff was and we couldn’t agree more. - Morgan
As soon as you walk through the front doors, you can see that The Eloise is different. Through these doors is the first story loft which is dedicated for an indoor ceremony and overlooks the grand reception hall. The warm tone of the wood floors, elegant gold chandeliers, and subtle white walls provide the perfect romantic setting to say your I do’s. The backdrop to your indoor ceremony is the lush forest through the reception wall of windows and the dramatic reception hall chandeliers.
The multiple sets of dimmable track lights ensures that you and your entire wedding party will be the center of the attention during your ceremony and not be lost in the stunning high ceilings of The Eloise. The audio system runs the entire length of the venue so you will never have to worry that your guests will miss a single word of your vows. As the ceremony concludes, you and your guests begin to move towards the next memorable moments of your wedding; a delicious dinner, passionate and funny speeches, and dancing the night away to all of your favorite songs.
We loved the ease of going from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception all in one place. Their grounds were immaculate, so we were able to stay onsite to take photos as well. We simply LOVE The Eloise, it was worth every penny and will always hold a special place in our hearts! - Melanie
When you start to walk down the staircase with your hand on the sleek black handrail, you feel the space change and get much bigger - you realize this space is fit to have a party. The ceiling heights get taller, the chandeliers are grander, and it’s hard to take your eyes off of the stunning wall of windows that beautifully accentuate the forest. Stop at our custom full length built-in bar for a beer or glass of wine before taking your seat for dinner. Once you're seated at the head table near the wall of windows, the best view in the entire venue is all yours for the rest of the night.
You finally get to take a moment to soak in all of the amazing moments that have happened throughout your wedding day. Take your time to enjoy your exquisite dinner, laugh and cry at your wedding party speeches, and get ready to put those dancing shoes on for the rest of the night. Don’t worry about you and your guests having to move tables and chairs to make room for all of the amazing dance moves that are about to occur. The reception hall can hold 250 guests PLUS a dance floor. We specifically designed The Eloise so you never have to flip a space or tear down tables.
Need to step out and get some fresh air to cool off those dancing shoes or take golden hour pictures? Go outside through the back terrace to enjoy the 6.5 acres of Southern Wisconsin’s rolling hills that The Eloise property has to offer. The natural landscape with tall prairie grasses and vibrant wildflowers are perfect for those golden hour pictures. Or just relax and enjoy a laugh or two at the back terrace on our patio furniture under the cafe lights. Additionally, there is plenty of outdoor space for your guests to enjoy yard games or just sit around a fire at our dedicated fire pit.
Looking to get married outside, don’t worry, we have you covered. The outdoor ceremony space is extremely accessible for guests with sidewalk paths from the parking lot and back of the venue. The smooth pathway of the sidewalk makes it much easier to walk down the aisle without having to worry about getting stuck in the dense grass. The outdoor ceremony space is one of the most unique design features of the property. It was intentionally built up so you and your guests have an elevated view of the forest. Instead of barron tree trunks, your photographer will be capturing the beautiful foliage of the forest as your backdrop during your I do’s. The forest is a rich green in the spring and summer and a vibrant display of yellow and orange in the fall months. Bring your custom archway, floral displays, and decor pieces to make your ceremony Pinterest worthy and one that your guests will be talking about for years to come.
