We had our reception at SqWires and it was a wonderful experience. We worked with Karen who, from what I understand, is only part time now, but she was lovely to work with. Our reception was on a Sunday so we had access to the full restaurant as well as the Annex (and we used all of it). She was very accommodating in terms of space and where we wanted the different parts of the night to take place. I also had created and packed all of my centerpieces and they mostly wound up where they were supposed to.

A couple negatives, one of which is that after the event one of the people who was working moved our cards around and handed them off to several different people during which a few were lost, including some I knew about and were fairly important to me. Also, my centerpieces involved these twig moss mats that were in storage bags sized to fit each mat along with a bunch of boxes- all of which was thrown away as soon as they were assembled. The only reason it's a problem is that I borrowed all of it and need to return it in, storage bags and all. Also I bought all of the boxes. Not sure why folks would have thrown it all away. Karen did replace the boxes and buy new bags for the mats, however they are much more inconvenient that the storage bags that the items came in (and fit said items perfectly). Overall not a huge deal, but just created a bit of a headache for me trying to get everything wrapped up the day after.

Overall, though, the reception was really lovely, and the event itself went perfectly.

We had an immediate family late morning wedding service with limo transport in afternoon. We scheduled appetizers and full dinner at 5pm at Sqwires prior to a 7pm reception at local venue for 100+ People. The appetizers and meals were high quality and superb. Everything was absolutely delicious. The turnaround time from order to receipt of food was very reasonable. The front line staff was amazing to work with. The food was excellent and was such a great dining experience. Great job Sqwires. We will be back.

I absolutely love Sqwires, I have been eating lunch at there for several years and always knew if I got married I wanted to have my reception at the Annex. After I booked the Annex my hubby and I decided why have our guest drive if we can do everything at Sqwires, and it worked out perfectly, we booked the Front Room for the ceremony and the Annex for the Brunch Reception complete with Mimosas and Champagne. I think they have changed the menu a little, but when we booked i February of this year they even had an Omelette Station. Now on to the service, they are so customer focused and Karen Cruze is totally amazing, she is responsive and extremely customer focused. They even had decorations they allowed us to use, which helped us keep cost down. The food is TOTALLY AWESOME and our guest are still talking about the food today. We also had a photo booth upstairs in the mezzanine. It's an awesome venue for 100-150 guests.

Not to mention the photo ops because of the fountain outside, the brick walk way with the flowers, it just made for a beautiful experience.

If you ever go to brunch on the weekend, be sure to try their Peach French Toast, it is to die for.

Thanks Sqwires for a memorable experience!

My husband and I recently had our wedding reception at Sqwires following our ceremony in Lafayette Park in September. We worked with Bethany and Karen in coordinating both the ceremony and the reception. They were so helpful! They were extremely patient and easy to work with. They were clear in guiding us through all the decisions and details which we really appreciated. To see it all come together on the big day, and to see how gorgeous everything turned out was absolutely amazing. We had looked around at several venues, but we have no doubt we made the right decision for us in choosing Sqwires. Our guests still remark on the delicious food and great service from staff at the reception and how beautiful the space looked. It's a very versatile space and you have a lot of options with how to reflect your own personal style/ambience. The lighting is also another huge part of what softens the space it makes it very beautiful. It's a venue that offers great service, attentive and detail oriented staff, and a unique space with a ton of character!

From the ceremony in Lafayette Park to the reception in SqWire's Annex, everything was perfect. Karen & Bethany took care of all the details for us leaving us less to worry about on the big day. The ceremony in the park was beautiful and everything went as scheduled and was on time. The reception was unbelievably beautiful -- from the room itself, flowers, decorations, etc. Practically every guests at the wedding commented on how delicious the food was. It was fantastic from start to finish. Thanks so much for making this special day perfect.

I cannot rave enough about how happy I was with our choice to have our wedding here! From day one the staff was beyond helpful with our planning and with answering all of our little questions. The day of the wedding topped everything off, the rain forced our ceremony inside and they sent a crew over to move everything indoors even though we were technically having our ceremony off site. All night they left no details unattended. It also doesn't hurt that the venue is gorgeous! Other places we looked at nickel and dimed you for every little detail, this places goes above and beyond and is very reasonably priced. In my opinion they should be charging a lot more! Book them now before they figure out what they really could be charging!

I feel so lucky to have found SqWires for our ceremony and reception venue. The value is unbelievable and you will not find a better coordinator to work with than Bethany. Thoughout the entire process she was available, understanding and so very helpful! I would walk into our meetings a huge ball of stress and walk out completely calm. Our ceremony actually took place outside of SqWires infront of the fountain. It was breathtaking. Bethany and her staff did all the set up and made sure everything was perfect! She also reserved the front room for us (at no charge) just in case it rained. The Annex is so beautiful and brings such character that we used very little decorations for the reception. I loved the variety of food and drink packages that were available at all different price ranges. Bethany worked with us on some items and allowed us to make a few choice substitutions. From what I heard from guests, the food was wonderful (I was too busy to eat anything!). Linens, cake cutting, and champagne toast were all included and Bethany's staff even set up our decorations for us! My guests were so impressed, one of my friends has decided to have her vow renewal in the Annex next Spring. During the last two weeks leading up to the wedding, I had no stress, no fears and very little to do thanks to Bethany. She even took care of my flowers (which were beautiful!). I was looking for an all-in-one package deal and I definitely found it at SqWires.

I can say that Sqwires has the best value of all the venues we researched in St. Louis. Karen is fantastic to work with and the space and food are amazing. I am still having guests tell me how great the food was. If I had another event in STL I would definitely use SqWires again.
