Our perfect day!

We had the best wedding day, thanks to Staci and her team at Slammer & Squire. We hosted our reception here and was a dream come true. Staci and team met with us several time the year + leading up to our wedding day and walked us through decisions and details and executed on our vision flawlessly with our vendors. We are so grateful for this team and cannot recommend them enough!

Our perfect wedding come true!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at King & Bear and the entire event was seamless!

Here are some highlights of why we selected this venue and why I 100% recommended it:

-Staci Watkins, the amazing onsite event coordinator who took charge of making my vision come to life. She was simply amazing!

-Onsite parking!

-Affordable and beautiful; causally elegant. So many of our guests complimented the venue choice. Food, drinks and dancing were inside, and outside we used the firepits — many of our guests took in the evening from that relaxing vantage point.

-Excellent food! We chose to do only heavy hors d’ oeuvres and the Chef worked with us to accommodate exactly what we wanted.

-Excellent, professional staff! We had a handful of people working our event who were always there, yet always discreet. Attentive, friendly, gracious — truly great!

-A private locker room area to get ready in — and we were checked in by the staff to ensure all was well.

-Location! We had many out of state guests and WGV is smack dab in the middle of lots of options so our guests could make a vacation out of their trip. Historic St Augustine? Nearby! Beaches? Check! Jacksonville experiences? Not too far away! And there are lots of AirBnB, VRBO and hotels nearby.

I cannot recommend King&Bear and its amazing staff highly enough. If you’re looking for a fair, affordable price without sacrificing a stunning wedding—this is your spot!

The right choice!

We had our wedding at Slammer & Squire and it was great. Staci was awesome the entire time we were planning and made things less stressful. She was flexible and we felt she was the perfect match for us. The staff at the wedding were great and we received a lot of compliments overall about the venue.

Also, the package we chose for our wedding we felt was a great deal for what you are getting. Between the location, food, drinks, and most of all the flexibility we felt we could not have chosen a better place to get married.
