Circa on Seventh
4902 7th Ave. Kenosha, WI
Have you photographed a wedding here before:
Site rental varies from $1000-$3800 depending on length of event, day & time of year.
Minimum Food & Beverage rates are additional cost.
This venue is owned by the same family as The Covenant at Murray Mansion so you know you're in good hands when you book your wedding and reception here.
The open concept, high ceilings and fresh, clean decor allows you to transform the space to match your vision for your big day.
Locked private room to keep your belongings safe for the duration of your event, and an exposed brick wall for some fun photo opportunities.
Original chandeliers, a loft overlooking the dance floor, custom wedding cocktails, in house catering and staff that will treat your guests like gold.
They've painted the outside a dark grey, which just adds to the charm if you ask me. The downtown location also makes for great photo opportunities just within walking distance!
Several great brick buildings in the area, or for a short drive you can be at the shores of Lake Michigan, with Kenosha's landmark red lighthouse as an addition to your wedding photos.
The Art Deco architectural building had originally opened up as the Butterfly theatre, and in 1921 was purchased by the Klinkert interests of Racine for somewhere around $12,000. In the 1930's it was renamed the Hollywood Theatre, and showed it's last double feature film in 1952. In January of 1954, it opened up again for one weekend, selling tickets for $0.50, before closing for good.
In the 1960's, it was purchased by the Polish Legion of American Veterans, and the slanted floor was filled in, and a drop ceiling was put in, hiding the 22' high ceilings and theatre balcony - turning the space into a banquet hall venue.
In 2012, when L&M Meats purchased the building, renovations began, revealing the historic charm of this gorgeous space. Including an original chandelier that was very similar to the newer ones they had purchased and installed.
When I first started getting inquiries for wedding photography coverage for clients weddings at Circa on 7th, I had to visit the venue to check it out. I met with Hanni, one of the owners, and she showed me around, sharing the history of the venue and the beautiful features of the building. I was so excited to get to work with the staff there, and make some beautiful photos for my clients.
Since then, I've been invited to photograph several wedding ceremonies & receptions at this downtown Kenosha venue. I was even the guest photographer for their Spring Tasting one year, where I was able to meet & photograph all their current & prospective clients. My relationship with the staff & owners afforded me the ability to capture some of their head shots used on their website.
Colin & Casey had their spring wedding ceremony & reception at Circa, opting to go down to the lake front for photos with the wedding party.
Michelle & Wes said I do at St. Mary's Parish in Kenosha, and celebrated with their guests at Circa for their reception.
Vicki & Sam were married in the church right next to Circa, downtown Kenosha - opted for some downtown fun before heading back to their reception venue for the party.
And most recently, friends of mine David & Peter celebrated their 20 year relationship by finally saying I do in an emotional ceremony with a casual reception and dance party at Circa. Loved this 1920's themed wedding!
