    We looked at many places before we stumbled upon Goggleworks for our wedding venue. From the moment we saw the photos we fell in love with the space and knew right away that this was the perfect place for both our wedding ceremony and reception. Not only is Goggleworks such a unique venue it has an INCREDIBLE team! Margaret was absolutely perfect from when we first booked the place up until the day of our wedding. The level of attention and hard work during the wedding and through the entire process beforehand was exceptional. There is not one single thing I would've changed about my wedding day and the Goggleworks team played a huge role in that. When my husband and I came back in from taking photos around the building, I had unfortunately collected a bunch of twigs around my dress. Fiona, the young woman working reception (who had no obligation to help us in any way), quickly rushed over to help remove the twigs in a way that would not rip my dress. It's little moments like that throughout the rehearsal and day-of that left us feeling that having had our wedding at Goggleworks was the first best decision we made. A huge thank you to Margaret, Fiona and the entire Goggleworks team!

    I worked with Margaret Murphy, the Events Coordinator, at the Goggleworks for two recent events. The first was the "Art of the Wedding Show" in which I, through Stellar Art and Design, LLC, was an invitation vendor. The second was my daughter's birthday party, held in a rented studio space. Margaret was a pleasure to work with for each event. She was very organized, helpful and promptly answered all of the questions I had for her.
