The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Five unique spaces offer a variety of ceremony and reception settings in which you can create your dream wedding. Backdrop your ceremony to the picturesque 400 Block in the B. A. & Esther Greenheck Lounge or the inspiring art exhibits of the CVA Gallery and Loft. Dance the night away under the sparkling star lights of the Great Hall, built large enough to accommodate even the grandest of weddings. Last but certainly not least, say your “I do’s” on the iconic stage of the historic Grand Theater, graced by legends such as B. B. King, Aretha Franklin, and Itzhak Perlman.
The Grand Theater has welcomed couples for over seventy-five years with its architectural grandeur and elegant surroundings. Step inside and take in the majestic stage, massive arches, and fluted columns accented with gold. This exquisite space has seating for over 1,200 of your guests.
From the moment guests enter the Great Hall, a sense of awe and amazement embraces them as they gaze at the stars 30 feet above, anchored by fourteen gold pillars at the perimeter of the room. With a multitude of room setups possible, the 4,300-square-foot facility can be modified to accentuate almost any wedding. The Great Hall is striking, intriguing, and altogether inspiring for any wedding celebration.
An intimate gathering space with an exceptional second-story view of downtown Wausau, the B. A. & Esther Greenheck Lounge is the ideal venue for smaller wedding ceremonies, receptions, or dinner parties. Whether your special event is during the day or in the evening, a beautiful view will accompany the occasion in this space.
If you are looking for an eccentric yet sophisticated space that goes beyond ordinary with an artistic flair, the Caroline S. Mark Gallery is the right place for you. Contemporary by design and function, the Gallery is a unique setting as the combination of two- and three-dimensional artwork will share the space with your guests.
It’s your special day. See your name in lights as you put your mark on this historic theater’s story while sharing the magic of the Grand Theater with your friends and families.
