    Such a special touch!

    We wanted to add a special touch to our cocktail hour and a vendor recommended we reach out to PSQ. After the rave reviews and our first communication, we booked them - and they did not disappoint. Guests are still calling me days later telling me how fun, cool, and special PSQ was during our cocktail hour. Cocktail hour at our venue was very spread out, but PSQ's setup and mobility helped keep the room intimate and the energy upbeat. We are so glad that we got to include them on our big day and will recommend them to all our friends! Thank you PSQ!

    A special unique detail

    We wanted something unique at our wedding so we reached out to Mugu and the team after seeing all the raves reviews! They accommodated our special requests for processional music (the weekend, game of thrones, a halo by Beyoncé) and guests made several comments about how beautiful they sounded doing cocktail hour. I’m just sad I didn’t get more time to listen to them during the ceremony (I was a little distracted!!)
