Kind Words...


"Karen and Kathy,

We appreciate all of your help over the last year as we worked to plan our wedding. Thank you for having such an amazing property. Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be, thanks in part to the amazing location! All the best to you in the future!

Sincerely, April and Matt"


"Hi!

We are taking off tomorrow for our honeymoon. We can't wait for some down time to catch up on sleep and relaxation! I just wanted to send you girls a quick thank you for all your help with setting up our wedding. There were many compliments on how beautiful it was there and what a great venue choice we had made. Thanks for everything!

Nicki and Jason"


"Thank you both very much for making our dream day a reality. The Hollyhock House was one of the most romantic settings and the gardens were in full bloom for the event! Our guests and we were taken aback. Your property has given us priceless memories.

Love, Matt & Leslie"


"Kathy and Karen are just wonderful. They have taken great pride in this beautiful property, inside and out! It was a real treat to be invited to capture our bride's wedding day. The details of each building is amazing and provided us with hundreds of photo ops. The Gardens are painstakingly well-kept and the only word to describe them: BEAUTIFUL. I would rather shoot at the Hollyhock House over The Domes or any park in Southeastern Wisconsin. Thank you again for letting Dean's Photography be part of Jonny & Nadine's wedding!"

-- Dean Dimitri Krapf, Dean's Photography


"Karen - Hi! We thought you and Kathy were both great! I had no idea you were twins! Dylan and I loved your personalities and were so pleased to finally meet you in person. The gardens looked gorgeous and we can not wait til October. I'm sure the fall leaves will be in full effect by then! You all have done a great job with the house and gardens. Again, I am so glad we "stumbled" across your website - I could not be happier with the location! We are really looking forward to the wedding, family and friends included and can't thank you enough for all of your assistance. "

-- Heather Foege


"Good evening ladies! Thank you again so much for allowing us to come in to your stunning location. The photographs look amazing! I also wanted to let you know that I ‘friended’ you on WeddingWire.com and wanted to give you huge props for such a gorgeous location. I will try to send some brides your way too! If I do, I will call you ahead and give you details! Thank you again so much!"

God bless, Dean Dimitri Krapf


"Everything was beautiful!! We had a great time as did all of our guests. We really liked all of the special touches you added. Thank you so much!!"

-- The Pitts (Nathan & Aprille)


"Dear Karen -- It has been such a pleasure working with you and your sister through all of this. Everyone we have met through you have just made all the planning so much easier. Our stress level is much lower due to having people like you and Kathy helping us out so much."

Sincerely, Denise & Adrian


"Thank you for letting me be the first bride to enjoy the Hollyhock House. I loved the gift bag and I love what you gals are doing with the place! It's like I came back to my hometown for a destination wedding! My guests had a great time and I know this will be something they will remember for a long time."

--Thanks again, Valerie and Kevin


"Thanks so much for helping make our day not just a success, but a beautiful success."..."Thank you for seeing me through this whole thing! The grounds were beautiful and your suggestions with everything were most helpful. You did meet my expectations and I’m just finally glad it’s over so I can just enjoy the memories and the photos!"

-- Jennifer & Mike


"Alan and I would like to thank you for the use of your beautiful home. The pictures turned out so beautiful also."

-- Tamela & Alan

The Hollyhock House is a charming Queen Anne-style Victorian cottage decorated inside and out to capture the beauty and elegance of a by-gone era. Situated on nearly two acres of gardens and lawns, the grounds are ideal for holding those special outdoor functions. And if the event is small and an indoor venue is preferred, we can accommodate that too! The HollyHock House is located in the quaint harbor town of Kewaunee, Wisconsin.

The Victorian charm of the Hollyhock House lead us to develop our home as a bed and breakfast. We realized that because of the cottage style, it would be difficult to limit our business to private single accommodations, so we decided to take advantage of the entire beauty and charm of the house and gardens and use our bed and breakfast to specialize in providing a story book setting for wedding events. That way the home would always be available for the Bride and Groom as a romantic private retreat, and a perfect place to hold their entire wedding affair!

Welcome to The Hollyhock House and Gardens


If you're looking for a romantic setting for your wedding that offers breathtakingly beautiful backdrops for your wedding photos, and memories that will last a lifetime, you'll find that and more at The Hollyhock House and Gardens. We are unlike any other venue in the area in that we offer flexibility and versatility that you cannot get at more traditional wedding venues.

You have options at The Hollyhock House and Gardens


We specialize in garden weddings for anywhere from 20-200 individuals. You can plan your event to be as formal, or as casual, as you choose. You can opt to make your event the traditional one day event, or take advantage of our "Destination Packages."

Imagine what you could do if you opted for a multi-day destination package . . .

You could have a cookout/rehearsal dinner on Friday night, the wedding ceremony and reception on Saturday, and a brunch/gift opening in the garden on Sunday morning.

You could arrange to spend your wedding night in our beautiful bridal suite (and have the entire house to yourself!), or to house your bridal party or your immediate family.

You could have a romantic candlelit reception under the stars, or a casual (go barefoot if you want!) cookout.

NOTE: The summer months aren’t the only time for a garden wedding. The gardens are equally beautiful in late spring and early autumn!

We'll help you plan your events


Unlike similar venues, we will help you with the planning of your event. We can provide you with a referral list of resources in the area offering services ranging from catering, to the tent rental, to the photographer, to the florist, to the DJ, and anything else you can think of. We'll offer assistance and advice when you want it, and work with you to ensure that your special day is everything you ever hoped for!

Arrange for a tour of our property


It may sound like a cliche but it's absolutely true . . . YOU MUST SEE THE GARDEN TO BELIEVE IT! To arrange for a tour of our facilities, please contact us here. Until then, please take a moment to view the photos on our website.
