The best of the best.
SqWires was one of our first big decisions when planning the wedding. It was also one of the best decisions we made. Ashley our coordinator was genuine, thoughtful and down to earth. She became someone we could bounce ideas off of and help create our vision and keep our feet on the ground. Every time we went to SqWires for a meeting we left feeling relieved and excited for our upcoming event. We ended up calling our rain plan and using SqWires front room for the ceremony. Which I was so glad for. They room has giant windows for natural lighting and a soft rustic feel. It made for a very beautiful and intimate ceremony. Our reception was held in the SqWires Annex. Ashley and her staff worked together with my friend/wedding coordinator to make a magical environment for the reception. The Annex is already a stunning room with out much need for decoration but with our minimalist touches they really made the place expressive. Our guests were comfortable, well fed, and had an amazing party. The staff was kind and on top of things, and there were never long lines at the bars. I was more than impressed by the whole evening. Ashley and her staff at SqWires are the best of the best and I would recommend for any event you are planning.Sent on 10/25/2018

We hosted our Wedding Ceremony and Reception at SqWires Annex and couldn't be happier with the result. From inital inquiry until the end of the evening Ashley was kind, professional, and responsive. During the ceremony reheasal she ensured we covered every single detail. On the day of, she was by my side to help with cues for ceremony, transitioning rooms for a cocktail hour, as well as flipping the Annex from a Ceremony to Reception setup. All of our guests were extremely happy with the catering and loved the look of the room. I would recommend it for any event!Sent on 06/10/2018

SqWires was the perfect venue for us. We held both our ceremony and reception there and everything went really smoothly. We had about 90 adults and 15 kids at our wedding, which felt like a perfect number. The loft space was a great option for people wanting to have a quieter conversation or who weren't interested in dancing. Ashley and her crew were very accommodating, and made planning from out of town very easy. Our guests gave rave reviews about the food (especially the tater tot bar!). We used an outside vendor for our dessert, and they made it look amazing at no extra cost.Sent on 06/06/2018

Landolfi Quartet played a wedding reception at Sqwires which was really a wonderful venue! It is spacious with a warm feeling. The buffet was exceptional. The area where the quartet played was comfortable and we could be heard and seen. Not that we have egos but when clients hire a string quartet that is usually important to them. We highly recommend this venue for weddings that want a warm, friendly feel with great food.
