Cieslak/Heitz Wedding (08/30/2014)
We wanted to send our sincere thanks to your staff, and especially yourself, for such a wonderful wedding evening. We were told by MANY other married couples that we would experience some hiccups during the reception, and that we would have to look past them and enjoy the night regardless. We honestly felt we had absolutely no hiccups, and everything went as planned! Well, we did have a minor hiccup (which was our fault) with one piece of the centerpiece not being filled with water, and a floating candle placed in there. Carrie mentioned it when we walked in, and within 20 minutes, you and your staff had everything 100% fixed. No one even knew! We received so many compliments as to how beautiful the PAC was, and how courteous the wait staff was, and we couldn’t have agreed more! My dad even mentioned he was becoming friends with one of the bartenders by the end of the night because he was so friendly!
From the beginning of this wedding process to the end, you have been extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and just plain pleasant to work with! I don’t think one time you told us ‘no!’ You let us live out our dream wedding, and we seriously couldn’t thank you enough for that. Both sets of parents have also mentioned how great you were to work with! We will continue to recommend the PAC to anyone that is looking for a venue! Our night was exactly as to how we planned it, and we appreciate everything you did to make that happen!
We can’t believe our wedding has come and went, and at the moment, we are in the early stages of the post-wedding blues! …but with all of the pictures and videos, that magical night will live on with us forever!
Thanks a million percent!

As soon as I walked into the Marcus Center, I knew this was the venue I was going to get married in. We had our ceremony in the Anello Atrium (we processed in from the two staircases, which added drama and anticipation!) and then had our reception in the Bradley Pavilion. Everyone at the wedding had such an amazing time - they were able to go outside to the Fitch Gardens and out on the beautiful balcony that overlooks the river. Many people at my wedding had never been to Milwaukee before and they absolutely loved the view and the ambiance. I worked mostly with Karin at Sazama's and she was so patient with me - I changed our contract about a million times. She really made sure everything was perfect for the big day. Overall, this venue was definitely out of our price range but I had to follow my heart and take the plunge. I'm so glad we picked the Marcus Center - multiple people told me it was the best wedding they'd ever been to!...

For the fourth year in a row, I have had the pleasure of working with Keith, Lynn and their team. Our clients tell me they don’t want to miss our events because they are wonderful and, if possible, improve every year. We do the European food stations and every year, we meet to decide ‘what countries to visit’. They present wonderful options for the stations as well as recommending complimentary wines to enhance the presentations. As anyone who plans events knows, last minute number changes are a way of life. Keith just says ‘no worries’ and is very patient when I call him numerous times in the days prior to our event. Our clients are always very impressed. Keith and his team help us continue to impress our clients. They are a professional, talented group of people who make it their job to do the very best possible for their clients. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone considering an event in Milwaukee.

Thank you so much for every little and big thing you did to help make our Summit such a huge success. We got a lot of positive comments on the venue, food, and general “vibe” of the day. We as staff were relaxed as everything ran smoothly and you and your staff were never far away to help if we needed anything. We look forward to holding more events with you and will be happy to provide any recommendations. Enjoy Spring if it actually sticks around!

Thank you to Keith, Lynn, JJ and the entire staff that together made my daughter's wedding celebration an amazing night to remember. You were so easy and such a pleasure to work with, your attention to detail and attentiveness was incredible. We truly appreciate and were touched by the additional details that seemed effortless to you. We will never be able to express our gratitude. Guests are still complimenting us on the service, food, and atmosphere, absolutely perfect! Most importantly, you surpassed Lindsay and David's expectations. You all have a special talent and your love for what you do is evident. I would highly recommend your venue.

We cannot begin to find the words to thank you for all of the hard work you put into making our special day unforgettable. It meant so much to us to have our closet family and friends with us to celebrate, and the experience that you and your staff provided made our wishes become a reality. We sincerely appreciated all of your support, guidance, and advice along the planning process.

I hosted my wedding at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts this summer. The service, food, staff and attention to detail were amazing! Keith is wonderful to work with and puts all your bridal nerves at ease. My family and friends are still raving about how impressed they were with the delicious food and the friendly and helpful staff. I highly recommend hosting your event with Sazama's Fine Catering at the Marcus Center.

Sazama's handled our wedding reception at the Marcus Center. It was absolutely perfect. The food was amazing, the room was beautiful and the staff was attentive and everyone was so nice. They made my special day absolutely perfect. Both my husband and I would highly recommend anyone looking to plan a wedding or reception definitely check them out. You will not be disappointed. You'll be amazed at how much better they make your special day than you ever could have imagined.
