About Us

The Rotunda wedding venue is located in Waukesha, Wisconsin, which also serves the Milwaukee and Madison areas. This historic site offers couples a charming setting in which to exchange their vows. Back in 1913, this venue was erected. It was carefully constructed using Bedford Limestone, and when it was completed it served as a federal post office and then a bank. Then, in 2001, this historic site was renovated to best suit its new purpose as an elegant banquet hall.

Facilities and Capacity
While this banquet hall has been renovated over the years, it still retains its Classic Revival architecture. This provides an unforgettable backdrop for the couple’s wedding and photographs. From the moment you and your guests arrive, you will be in awe of the architectural details and craftsmanship. The exterior is quite impressive with its coffered dome, rounded shape, and stately columns. The interior is just as refined. You can host your wedding with up to 200-250 of your friends and family present. As you exchange your vows inside, you will be surrounded by elegant touches from the tired gold chandeliers to the hand-painted walls. Couples are provided with a hospitality suite so that you can all comfortably get ready for the big day. If you like, you are more than welcome to extend the reception outside on the veranda so that you and your wedding party can take in the surrounding views. This space is complete with everything you need to host a reception such as bistro tables.

Couples have extensive and customizable wedding catering and menu options to choose from with this Chef Jack’s Catering-exclusive property, including plated dinners, family-style, food stations, cocktail reception, buffet, hors d'oeuvres, and dessert. In addition, Chef Jack's provides a variety of bar packages. Please note there is a 125 guest minimum for Saturday events.

  • The Rotunda was AMAZING! Lisa made sure we had everything we needed and helped every step of the way during the planning process and on the day of. It has been totally bizarre trying to plan a wedding during COVID, but they were so accommodating of all of the hiccups and changes we needed to make as well as extra safety precautions to help our guests spread out and feel safer. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful - our pictures are stunning. We also got so many compliments on the food. I can't recommend The Rotunda enough! So happy with how everything turned out!!!
