ABOUT THE FAMILY
From Our Family...To Yours
When my daughter approached me and told me that she wanted to have the old creamery manufacturing building for her wedding I probably laughed. When I realized she was being serious we called and booked a tour. As soon as the elevator doors opened I was taken back at how elegant and unique the open space was. After months of remolding and endless research Creamery 201 finally came to life. Who knew my daughter's engagement would lead to a growing wedding venue and career change for me. We are excited to hear your story and hope that Creamery 201 can be the place for your next celebration.
When my wife and I were discussing Creamery 201 I answered with a supportive yes...husbands, I hope you do the same throughout your marriage!
During the thrill and excitement of trying to find the perfect wedding venue (for my now husband and I), we stumbled across a "for lease" sign in the window of a beautiful brick building located in our hometown, Fort Atkinson, WI. We took a tour of the building and fell in love with the tall white columns and open space. We envisioned our day here and clung to that as we explained to our family that this was the place for us. My mother (Katie) immediately saw our dream too and helped us take the necessary steps to host our winter wedding here. Today, Creamery 201 has hosted weddings, corporate events, fundraisers and other special events. I am excited to be apart of watching others create their own beauty and vision within this location.
Marketing & Event Staff
My mom and sister have poured countless late nights and long weekends into creating Creamery 201 what it is today. As business began to pick up so did my responsibilities. In the beginning, I started by steaming hundreds of tablecloths and eventually worked my way into becoming a bartender. These days I spend my time developing and implementing marketing content, but every now and then you might see me mixing drinks or lighting candles. I am so proud to be apart of this team and look forward to where the future takes us. If you catch me out and about at Creamery 201 be sure to stop and say hi. Cheers!
ABOUT THE VENUE
In 1920, Creamery Package of Chicago built the large five-story building. Over the years it has housed many different manufacturing businesses, each leaving its mark on the unique building. In 2006 it went through a major restoration project.
Creamery 201 is located on the second floor of this historic building. Almost floor to ceiling windows surrounds the space, revealing views of Main Street, Fort Atkinson, and our beautiful Rock River. In the middle of the building, you will find an opening and mezzanine to the third floor that is encapsulated with a wrought iron railing.
Easy access is provided for all catering and business functions with the use of our freight elevator, two stairways, and an additional elevator.
