The Ivy House

The Ivy House is a modern, industrial event space in Milwaukee’s burgeoning Walker’s Point neighborhood. It’s an urban destination with a sophisticated feel. The Ivy House is also a multi-award winning wedding venue that boasts cascading greenery, skylights, cream city brick, a large bar made from reclaimed bleacher board and a spacious ivy-drenched patio.

As a venue operator, we provide the space, tables/chairs, bar service and DJ, A/V and lighting with our company Milwaukee Airwaves. Clients are free to chose from our preferred list of other vendors including caterers, florists and more.

If you love lush botanicals, great drinks and an all- night dance party, this is your place!

“Hands down the BEST venue you could pick in MKE for your wedding! The venue itself, the staff, the location, amenities...I could go on forever. The venue itself is very modern and is the perfect spot for anyone looking for a romantic, elegant venue. The upstairs bridal suite was a huge bonus and made our getting ready experience even more special. To say how amazing the staff was is an understatement. They did everything they could to make sure my husband and I were taken care of all night and never skipped a beat. Plus, they helped us throw a pretty awesome party! You would have never guessed it was a COVID wedding and everyone raved at how much fun they had. Thank you Ivy House team for everything!!” — Caitlin, Married on 09/10/2020

“We picked the Ivy House for its beauty, but would recommend it for their amazing service! We couldn’t have asked for more easygoing staff and transparent process especially during such uncertain times. It’s hard planning a wedding and doing so in COVID times was definitely uncharted territory. However [the] staff was so responsive, helpful, flexible, and understanding as we figured it out together. I literally would laugh happy tears when I would get responses to my multiple questions with numbered responses. So many of the other vendors we worked with remarked at how amazing their staff were key in making everything run smoothly! Would definitely recommend them to anyone” — Emily, Married on 10/17/2020

“Everyone who works there is so welcoming and makes you feel like family. They were so great at communicating throughout the entire planning process… We had Milwaukee Airwaves for our DJ which was also amazing, since they own the space they know how to navigate it so smoothly throughout the night. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour outside, went inside for dinner, and then came back out for dancing. Music was playing the whole time and there was no glitch or pause in the transition from each space! My husband and I felt so relaxed on our wedding day because everyone made us feel totally confident that everything would run smoothly and it did!! Everyone was so helpful and supportive throughout the whole process and made sure that we were enjoying ourselves the whole time. From making sure we took in every ounce or the beauty of our venue on our wedding day to keeping our drinks full. They had everything covered. We simply showed up and were basically guests at our own wedding… I will hype this place up forever because it is the absolute best!!!” — Rebecca, Married on 08/13/2020
