Perfect Setting For Our Daughter's ReceptionReviewed on 9/04/2013 Sara W
Cuvée provided a magical setting for our Daughter's wedding reception. From a change of date to competing with Harley Fest the staff did everything possible to make it a perfect evening. It is such a lovely place with the exposed cream city brick and hardwood floors to the tall windows and inviting bar. Everything was set up and ready to go when we arrived. The staff works well with the other vendors such as our caterer, DJ and photographer. We enjoyed every moment and the bride and groom were so happy with every detail. We could not have found a better place to hold the reception.
Cuvee was the perfect setting for our wedding and reception! It is such a beautiful location and the staff was great to work with. We had a small (90 guests) Thursday night ceremony followed by cocktails and butler passed h'ors deouvres, and dancing. Because the space itself is so gorgeous, we didn't have to go crazy with decorations- lots of candles was really all we needed. We loved having two rooms for the guests to mingle in- the big event room with the food and dj, and if guests wanted to talk/relax somewhere a little quieter, the champagne lounge was perfect. Aside from the beauty of the venue, the staff was what made our day so wonderful. We paid a few hundred dollars more for the day-of coordination package and that was worth every penny! Nadia did an amazing job of having a timeline typed up so everyone knew where they needed to be and when, the staff set up all our decor and packed it all up for us at the end of the night. They did an awesome job of taking care us. Knowing Nadia had everything under control allowed my mom and I to relax and just enjoy the evening. I would highly recommend having your event at Cuvee. Its a beautiful and classy venue, our guests had an incredible time, the house champagne is amazing, and the staff did an awesome job of running the event. It truly was the wedding of my dreams.
Cuvee featured the perfect atmosphere for our wedding: fancy and polished, but not stuffy. We initially booked with the owner Kris who won us over with her professionalism and attention to detail. Two different wedding coordinators came on during the ~16 months before our wedding and were quite good. Nadia, who was the coordinator at the time of our wedding, was wonderful at leading us through the details and letting us set up a bit the afternoon before. Because of the beautiful space, we didn't have to go crazy with decorations, which was also a plus.
Beautiful Venue, Inflexible About BarReviewed on 11/20/2014 Laura P
Cuvee is lovely. I'm so happy we had our reception here. It was a little daunting to go through so much staff turnover (from the point we signed the contract to the point of our wedding was 13 months and they had 4 venue coordinators in that time) but everything worked out beautifully. Jennifer is courteous, kind, and professional. I didn't have any interaction personally with the owner (Kris? I think?) but my day of coordinator said she is pleasant as well. My only small gripe is their lack of flexibility surrounding the bar. I get it, weddings are their bread and butter so they have the right to set their own rules but it was such a pain that they wouldn't close the bar during dinner so that we could extend our package a bit longer. 99% of wedding venues will have the bar open for cocktail hour, close during dinner while people are seated and eating, and reopen after dinner for dancing, etc. Cuvee will only allow "continuous" bar service. So if you want a bar package from 6-12, you are paying for 6-12 even though barely anyone is drinking during the dinner hour from 7-8pm since they're in a different room and settled. It seems like a giant waste. We even announced that the bar would still be open, but again, once everyone is settled and eating and talking with their table they don't want to get up, leave the room, order their drinks, and come back. I wish we could have done 6pm-7:15, and reopened the bar at 8:15 - 12am for the same price as what we ultimately did, which was open bar 6-11pm and cash bar 11pm - 12am. But, really, that's my only negative. I would absolutely recommend Cuvee as a venue overall. My family and friends raved about it!
Champagne!Reviewed on 7/03/2014
Cuvee Champagne Lounge was a great wedding venue. The look of the venue was exactly what we were looking for. It provided a classic, unique space and our guests loved it. We had the cocktail hour in the bar area, which we would absolutely recommend as the reception area is too long and narrow to handle both dinner and the cocktail hour. We had a live band and were a little nervous about the sound, but it turned out great! Finally, the staff, specifically Kristy, was great to work with. She was very friendly and professional. Highly recommend the space and the Cuvee team!
Wonderful reception!Reviewed on 7/20/2013 Sarah H
We selected Cuvee for our reception because we were looking for an urban space in a cool location that could easily accommodate 150+ guests. Cara, the coordinator at Cuvee, is wonderful. She went above and beyond to help us customize the experience for our guests. We met with her a couple of times leading up to the event and then her staff did a great job the night of. We live out of town, so having her trust and high level of execution were very important to us. The space is beautiful and we received many compliments from our guests. We especially appreciated that after dinner the whole dining space and the champagne lounge are open, which offer many different spaces for guests of different ages to enjoy the reception.
Loved itReviewed on 7/09/2013 Alicia S
I don't always trust reviews, so I wanted to write something tell my view of the venue. It was absolutely perfect! My wedding was a few weeks ago and my guests cannot stop talking about it. They keep saying how perfect it was and how much fun they had. The lounge chairs make for a perfect place to relax as well as the circular bar. The dance floor has a nice flow into the bar area and at dinner, no one was too far away from each other. I highly highly recommend it! The price is not bad, right over 5,000.
May 2012 wedding at CuveeReviewed on 8/25/2012 Elizabeth K
We loved the venue the moment we walked in – with the dark wood, exposed brick, and modern loft feel. Our guests loved the space, too. We had about 105 guests, which fit the space perfectly. I don’t think I’d try fitting more than 150 or 160 in there, however – it would be very tight. The owner (Kris) was easy to work with, although she is quite particular about the space and what type of décor you can use, but I don’t blame her – I would be the same way. The only negative was that the alcohol prices are very high for Milwaukee. Although, we expected this, because it is a bar, after all.
Amazing venue!!Reviewed on 10/22/2011 Jackie H
We had our ceremony and reception at Cuvee two weeks ago. Kris and Hester were both amazing to work with. From start to finish they both provided excellent service, professionalism, and communication. They were flexible with any changes and answered questions in a clear and timely manner. The day of our wedding, the space looked amazing! We received so many compliments about how gorgeous the venue was! The staff were equally amazing on the day of our wedding, by providing excellent service and communication. They far exceeded our expectations!
Wonderful choice!Reviewed on 5/24/2011 pat t
Kris and her staff were professional, well-organized and all around excellent. The venue is absolutely beautiful. We couldn't be happier with our choice.
PERFECTReviewed on 5/23/2011 Christian N
Cuvee was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception. The day we saw their website, we knew that's where we wanted it to be. It is unique and is filled with character. It is a little pricey, but well worth it. It is a beautiful place and the people were wonderful to work with.
