I cannot say better things about Sweetwater Branch Inn! The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, it barely needed any decorations its so wonderful. The food was AMAZING, and they have a variety of choices so that you can choose what is right for your wedding! Everyone was talking about how amazing the food was during and well after the wedding was over! The staff at Sweetwater is so helpful and courteous! They answered all of our questions and truly listened to every hope and dream we had for our day! Our Sweetwater coordinator (Keeley) was there every step of the way, she was so kind to us and our families! She took the time to get to know us and make us feel comfortable and heard! I cannot recommend Sweetwater more for your wedding! They made our day perfect!Sent on 12/29/2018

The wedding of our dreams..
We are over the moon with the venue we chose. The minute we saw the venue for the first time, we knew we would be getting married there. The entire staff at Sweetwater was so kind and supportive from the very beginning. They were flexible, patient, and understanding. They answered a million of my questions without blinking an eye. They were beyond professional and accommodating to all of our needs the day of and the day before. Our family and friends (and us included!) were blown away by how truly beautiful the venue is. Everything looked stunning on the day of the wedding. Alicia and the rest of the staff at SWB were so on top of everything that my husband and I have no idea if anything went wrong! Our family was so impressed with the staff afterwards. Plus- the food is AMAZING! So delicious. We love them!Sent on 08/13/2019

I loved EVERYTHING about Sweetwater Branch Inn! When you are choosing to have your wedding here, you are choosing more than a BEAUTIFUL garden with twinkle lights and an open, bright banquet hall. You are choosing a staff of responsive, thoughtful, and unbelievably helpful people that are going to make your wedding dreams come true. Any time we had a question they were ready with suggestions to help guide us. They helped us think through every detail in our planning process. And on our special day they helped coordinate everything and make everything beautiful. I was the most stress-free bride because of them. All of our guests were so impressed by the delicious food, decor, and fun lawn games. Sweetwater is the PERFECT place to have your wedding!Sent on 04/22/2019

I love working with the staff at Sweetwater Branch. Lauren is a great asset, every venue should have someone like her. Between the professionalism of the staff and the beautiful landscape of the property, Sweetwater Branch is the perfect location for your wedding day from Ceremony to Reception or your private event. I highly recommend Sweetwater Branch from the vendor and customer level.
I love it when I get to style the brides hair at this location. The accommodations and staff make it a very Sweet and Stress free for the bride on her wedding day
