    A dream wedding come true!

    We had our wedding reception at the Kimpton Sawyer in May 2019 and this review is long overdue! From the moment we walked into the Kimpton Sawyer and met with the coordinator, we knew that is was the perfect place for us! Not only is it beautiful and in a wonderful location for out of town guests, they really know how to put on a seamless event! Leslie (the wedding coordinator) was extremely responsive and her coordination skills were incredible! I felt like we really scored when it came to getting her as part of our wedding experience (and included in our package)! The venue was beautiful- we had an open bar cocktail hour on the outdoor veranda and in the upstairs area then dinner/dancing and reception occurred in the ballroom. The ballroom looked a little plain to me on initial touring of the venue, but let me tell you, Leslie helped us with our vision and we transformed it into a beautiful wedding reception and I was blown away to see it all come together the day of. The food was delicious, bar was great, service team was amazing and hotel staff was really helpful to all guests. I had a bridal suite in the hotel as well and our room was incredible with a view of the cathedral (where we had our ceremony). Our room block also worked out great for all of our guests! We brought in a lot of decor, etc for our wedding and the entire Kimpton team was so helpful loading and unloading everything from the moment we arrived at the venue to the moment we left! I also loved that I was able to pick all of my vendors (florist, cake decorator, photographer, live band) and Kimpton handled a lot of the details with them and that made my life a lot easier during the busyness of planning! All my vendors were very pleased with the organization and coordination by Leslie. I truly cannot say enough good things about our experience with Kimpton Sawyer in Sacramento and would do it all over again exactly the same! In fact, my husband and I look back on it and felt Kimpton really made us feel like we were the "guests of honor" our entire stay there! Thank you Leslie and Kimpton team for helping make our wedding reception a dream come true!

    Gorgeous venue with amazing service!

    We got married at the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel on April 27, 2019 and it was the perfect venue! My husband and I had a few "must-haves" when it came to our venue. We wanted a venue that had an outdoor ceremony location (with an indoor backup in case of bad whether) and an inside reception space. We also wanted a venue that was close to a hotel so we wouldn't have to worry about transportation after the wedding knowing that most people would drink. We wanted a venue that had good food. And lastly, we wanted a venue that lent itself to creating a fun, party atmosphere. The Sawyer Hotel checked all these boxes and more! The beautiful thing about getting married at a hotel is that a lot of the work is done for you. You don't have to pick an outside caterer or hire a day of coordinator. The food at the hotel is SO DELICIOUS and there are a lot of options. We chose to be unconventional and have a variety of "action stations" such as a taco bar, slider bar, and mac n cheese bar. The food was a huge hit! Leslie Martin, the event coordinator at the hotel, is truly amazing and was a big reason we chose the venue. We got along with her from the second we met and totally trusted her to help us make our dream wedding a reality. On our wedding day, she dealt with all the set up and vendor coordination so I didn't have to worry about anything. And since the venue is also a hotel we didn't have to worry about transportation at all. We got a large hotel room block with a great rate, so most of our guests stayed at the hotel after the wedding. We were even able to book a table at Revival for the after party which was super fun! Overall, the venue was beautiful, the food was great, the staff was amazing and helpful! We can't recommend the venue enough!
