"Just a little appreciation to my venue. I have a two year old. He is so well behaved but even the most well behaved kids can be overwhelmed by a long wedding day. My poor little guy zonked out after dinner and missed busting his move on the dance floor but the staff at Story Hill FireHouse were so kind to my lil guy! The venue coordinator, Amy let him chase her around and the Trolley Driver/Owner Janelle, let my little guy truly enjoy the trolley while we took pictures that he wanted no part of. Just one of the many reasons I felt I chose the best vendors for each aspect of our wedding
I am currently working with Amy who is absolutely the best! She has been helping in every way possible and helping my nerves for my upcoming wedding, I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else!"
"As soon as we saw the Story Hill FireHouse we knew it would be our short list for wedding reception venues. As soon as we toured and met with Amy, the manager, we knew it was the one for us! As it turns out, we made a great decision! We're still getting compliments on the venue 4 months later. Story Hill FireHouse was very fairly priced, especially for a Friday night and both Janelle and Amy as well as the staff were responsive, professional and went above and beyond what was advertised! The space was warm and inviting and strikes the perfect balance between formal and relaxed. It was beautiful enough that we didn't need to spend an arm and leg on flowers and decor, and the fun Milwaukee history was right up our alley as a couple!"
