The dream venue
We must have toured a dozen places before ending up at Ignite. The second we walked in to the garden, we knew it was the place. They offered everything we want -- rooftop with a view of the city, an outdoor garden space, and an open and beautiful room perfect for whatever you wanted. We used the roof for the cocktail hour, as we felt the trains made it a bit too public (they weren't as noisy as you would think!). The ceremony was held in the garden, with the beautiful blown glass plates as the backdrop. The indoor space was great for the reception, as it is such a blank canvas you can turn into whatever you want. Guests could not stop commenting on how unique and beautiful of a space it was. We opted for the blown glass demonstration, which was another big hit! Plus it gave my husband and I time to sit and breathe for a few moments, a highlight of the evening. We were also surprised at how reasonably priced they were. Honestly, we cannot recommend this spot enough.Sent on 09/12/2019

Memorable and Unique Space
Ignite Glass Studios is the truly unique space we were looking for. With the multiple outdoor spaces and decorative glass throughout, we felt additional decorations weren't even necessary. The entire team was fantastic to work with - especially Genevieve who took the time to provide some great direction on utilizing the space effectively. I really appreciated the flexibility with vendors. While some spaces force you to stick with one or two preferred caterers, florists, etc., Ignite provided a few dozen so we were able to find ones that fit both our vision and budget. The glass blowing demonstration is a must - people raved about it. I highly recommend the venue - there isn't one thing I would change about our experience!Sent on 10/24/2018

My wife and I stumbled upon Ignite Glass Studios (IGS) after an extensive search for a wedding venue. We reached out IGS and received a response immediately. We decided to go for a walk through to check out the venue and get some details about cost and other logistics. An employee who no longer works there met us and took us on a tour. She was incredibly welcoming and very knowledgeable of all the information a potential client would ask. From the first moment my wife and I walked into the space, we knew this was the space. This venue is so beautiful and all the people working there are so nice!Sent on 01/01/2019
For our wedding we chose to use the main venue space and the rooftop; so worth it! After we signed the contract to hold our date, the original person we were in contact with left IGS and Genevieve and Amanda took over. They were so easy to work with helped make the transition go smoothly. As we got closer to the day of our wedding, there was potential for rain in the forecast which would have altered our original cocktail hour plan on the rooftop. Even though we were hoping not to use them, both Genevieve and Amanda came up with a couple of weather plans to help put our minds at ease in the event we would need to stay inside.
Additionally, are our other main vendors (Cocina Fusion and An Event Less Ordinary) came through IGS recommendations and we couldn’t have been happier with them. So amazing.
We can’t speak highly enough of the IGS event space and the IGS staff. They truly exceeded our expectations and made our day that much better.
