The Legend at Brandybrook Weddings
The Legend at Brandybrook has a unique presence in the event venue landscape. It’s part Scottish castle – part country club and there’s nothing quite like it in Milwaukee. There is a countryside elegance that this space lends to any event it hosts.
The team at Legend of Brandybrook is Risa Kuhlman (Co-Owner and Director of Special Events), Adam Martin (Director of Operations), Keith Foster (Executive Chef), and Jackie Fellin (Service Manager). Together, they guide couples to an elegant and smooth wedding experience in a beautiful space surrounded by stunning grounds.
We had a chance to sit down with Risa and learn a little more about her and her experience in the event industry.
Fun Facts about Risa
Adult beverage of choice? It used to be a dirty martini, now it’s a sparkling water with a lot of lime. I pretend it’s margarita. Actually, my true beverage of choice is coffee.
If you had an enormous yacht, what would you name it? Legend, of course! or Legendary.
Favorite animal? Golden retriever
Best trip you ever went on and why? I went to Maui and saw my best friend get married to her partner. I was her Maid of Honor.
What do you do when your not hosting other people’s parties? I love hiking and Wisconsin has such great state parks. I also do a little bit of traveling based on hiking. [Soon]I’ll go to Muir Woods in San Francisco. That’s the number one thing that I like to do. I also like to talking about ideas and getting people to dream of what they want in their lives.
What style of weddings are the best fit for The Legend at Brandybrook?
Really it’s whatever each couple wants. We can do everything high end, super detailed, special chairs and drapery – anything they dream about, we can certainly tailor it to that. But the real beauty of our property is that it doesn’t need much. It’s so stunning as it is, it really doesn’t need much enhancement.
What are your favorite wedding trends?
There seem to be more and more weddings that are bringing it back to the family. All the little special touches to bring the family together, what they like to do together and things like that.
What should couples know before picking a venue?
Couples really have to make sure they do their homework. All the venues offer different packages. You will have to ask the right questions. It’s also really important to make sure you are comfortable with the person answering those questions, the consistency of those answers, and how thorough they are. For instance, if you are booking your venue 18 months ahead of time, are you guaranteed that in 1.5 years the policies will stay the same? The devil is in the details!
Also, think about what the guest experience is going to be like. Here at Legend of Brandybrook, every guest is treated as a member of the club. Service is a top priority for us and it’s one of the qualities that makes us unique.
