Garden Weddings and Rehearsals

Whether your wedding is right around the corner, or down the road, Cream City Weddings has everything you need to create a memorable intimate event.

If you’re searching for an intimate space to host your wedding or elopement ceremony, rehearsal dinner, or bridal shower, look no further than Cream City’s urban garden. Nestled between some of Walkers Point’s beautifully restored historic buildings, this garden hosts several varieties of trees, lush ground cover, a small koi pond and even a few urban chickens (shy but still tougher than those country chickens).

Garden Features

The garden can accommodate up to 40 people for a ceremony, cocktail reception or party. If you’d like to host a sit down or buffet dinner, our seating capacity is 20. You and your guests will have full access to the garden, indoor studio and gallery, and restroom. You can have photographs taken in the studio or several areas of the garden that offer different backgrounds.

Food Service

When it comes to food service, we offer a variety of options including BYO, recommended caterers, food trucks, or elegant platters.

  • BYO – You are welcome to bring in your own catered food, snacks, desserts and beverages. If you do bring your own food and beverage and need service help, there is an additional fee.
  • Recommended Caterers – We work with some of Milwaukee’s finest caterers and are happy to recommend one to you, or plan your food service for you with one. Our caterers can simply drop off food for you and have our team set out platters or chafing dishes or you can hire their teams for passed hors d oeuvres, buffet or sit down service.
  • Food Trucks – Open our garden gates to the streets of Milwaukee and its many food trucks. Cream City has a list of over 50 food trucks with everything from BBQ and Mexican, to Soul Food and Belgian Waffles. Guests can order their fare and bring it back in to the garden for eating.
  • Cream City Catering – We don’t prepare the food, but we do have a list of elegant platters that we can order and bring in for you and your guests.
  • Bar Service – If you’re looking for alcoholic beverage service for your event, Cream City can set you up with its recommended bar tending service who can provide with everything from hosted wine and beer to signature cocktails.
