Anonymous (07/28/14, Wedding) 

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!



Brian and Cindy (9/21/2013 Wedding)

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.

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.
