We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Sweet Pete's/Candy Apple Cafe. Everyone loved the venue and food! We got many compliments on both. It is a very unique and fun place to have a wedding/reception. Kiersten, the event planner, was easy to work with. I loved the fact that it's essentially an all in one venue. They provide the catering, bar services, table, chairs, linens, and it's such a beautiful place you don't need many decorations (mainly just center pieces). During the reception, Kiersten was present and checked with us a few times during the night to make sure everything was going exactly how we wanted.Sent on 04/14/2017

We absolutely LOVED our experience with Candy Apple Cafe/Sweet Pete's! Kiersten was great to work with and was attentive and organized during the planning process. During our wedding reception, Jake (captain of service staff) was also exceptionally helpful - in addition to overseeing his duties, he made sure my husband and I had cocktails and food throughout the event, which we greatly appreciated. Everyone on staff did above and beyond their assigned roles to make things run smoothly (especially when we ended up having about 30 extra guests who had not RSVPed)! In total, we had about 150 guests, and we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from them that events of the reception ran smoothly and they had a great time!Sent on 12/11/2016
