WEDDINGS & PRIVATE EVENTS

Welcome to one of Sheboygan County’s most unique venues for weddings as well as corporate and individual group events. Situated on 240 acres, Wade House offers your guests a distraction-free environment and is conveniently located on State Highway 23, less than 20 minutes from Sheboygan and Fond du Lac.

WEDDINGS

Wade House invites you to create your wedding story on our historic and picturesque grounds. With a variety of scenic locations for your ceremony and reception, along with the Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum, an original stagecoach inn and more, we will help you create historic memories for you and your guests.

  • The Meadow

    The beauty of a lush meadow is the ideal setting for an outdoor ceremony and/or reception. The charmingly natural surroundings, away from roads and buildings, will bring the perfect pastoral touch to your romantic day.

  • The Walnut Room

    This room has stunning hardwood floors, four windows and two sets of French doors for an abundance of sunshine by day and glorious sunsets by night. With alluring views of the Kettle Moraine, the Walnut Room is a grand space for your indoor ceremony or reception.

  • The Lawns

    The picturesque lawns, located just outside the new Wade House Visitor Center, are nestled in a truly serene setting. This open space is the perfect site for a lovely outdoor wedding.

  • The Carriage Pavilion

    The carriage pavilion offers a rustic setting for a wedding ceremony and reception. The structure features overhead doors that can bring in or keep out the weather. It is surrounded by plenty of open area. The spacious, unobstructed interior is well suited to accommodate small, large, casual, or formal gatherings.

"Thank you for making our wedding celebration memorable. Wade House is such a picturesque venue and we are grateful for all the scenic wedding pictures that came from it for us to look back on for years to come."
