We always wanted a unique venue for our wedding and The Swiss was a home run!. Everything about this venue exceeded our expectations! The atmosphere was perfectly adorned with Dale Chihuly art, exposed brick walls, local eclectic art pieces, three joined rooms and the iconic 1900's large wooden bar. We spiced up the decor with our personal touches like monogrammed coasters and cocktail napkins, sparkly table cloths and banners, but really, The Swiss doesn't need much to be visually appealing and inspiring.Sent on 06/06/2014
The three unique rooms worked perfectly together, giving our guests options of levels of entertainment and excitement. The bar room worked wonderfully for those who wanted to sit and chat comfortably; the stage room was were we put our head table (so great for people to walk by and say hello!), cake table and DJ (on the stage-great vantage point), and extra seating for close family; the game room worked our PERFECTLY for the younger crowd to play games, get energy out, and/or get their photo taken at the photobooth we rented. As the night progressed, the Swiss staff expertly (and invisibly, I cannot tell you when/how they did it!) transitioned the stage room into a dance floor and area for toasts, garter and bouquet tosses. The crowd loved this and we really felt the party get started.
The vendors we used (photobooth, DJ, cake baker) loved the simplicity of setting up and dropping off in a venue accustomed to handling events like this. They had plenty of time and space for their items, and if they ever had a question, the Swiss staff was there to help. Our friends and family also had a swift and easy time setting up our decorations. The large and attractive wooden bay doors not only vent the venue on warm days, but they make load in/out a (literal) breeze.
I've said it before, but the staff at the Swiss are simply amazing. The owners assisted with the planning and execution of the evening, giving us insight and tips to make it a fantastic event.
