  • Margaret is a dreamboat of a human being. I read these reviews too before I booked and thought- no way is anyone that great- but she IS. Every question received a prompt answer, and the answers usually included accompanying answers to questions I didn’t know I had! Margaret has a passion for her career, and it’s beautifully evident in the way she carries herself and cares for her couples. The venue itself is a work of art, lovingly restored but with a solid amount of grit that you can play into or juxtapose. We approached the venue as a blank slate, a foundation upon which we could build layers of visual interest and intentional décor that provided softness to the room. A few recommendations: Bringing ‘up lighting’ for the entrance into the reception hall. If you don’t bring lighting, you’re left with the overhead lights that are a bit harsh, particularly if your reception is beginning at/around sunset. For lighting- there are vendors that can come in and take ... Read more

  • We love GoggleWorks! They offer multiple spaces for events of different sizes and needs, and they’re very reasonably priced. While events are going on, the rest of the building is open with their normal hours, which our guests loved! We had a few people take a break from the party and go walk around the galleries and studios. Margaret Pendleton was so responsive, helpful, and understanding, which I was so grateful for as the day got closer. She really made sure we thought of and remembered everything we needed, and made us feel so at ease. We also just can’t say enough about Tess, who was helping with the reception for the second half of the day. Everyone we worked with was incredible, but especially Tess when we found that my parents’ car was broken into and my purse was stolen from it. Unfortunately they had parked under trees for shade, which prevented cameras from picking up clear images, but Tess was so comforting and professional. She stood outside and made conversation ...

  • The venue was amazing & so beautiful!! Margaret went above and beyond everything we could have asked and she made my wedding day so much less stressful and was just so pleasant. The Goggleworks staff was great with my guests and I really appreciated. 10/10 all around I highly recommend this venue!

  • We looked at many places before we stumbled upon Goggleworks for our wedding venue. From the moment we saw the photos we fell in love with the space and knew right away that this was the perfect place for both our wedding ceremony and reception. Not only is Goggleworks such a unique venue it has an INCREDIBLE team! Margaret was absolutely perfect from when we first booked the place up until the day of our wedding. The level of attention and hard work during the wedding and through the entire process beforehand was exceptional. There is not one single thing I would've changed about my wedding day and the Goggleworks team played a huge role in that. When my husband and I came back in from taking photos around the building, I had unfortunately collected a bunch of twigs around my dress. Fiona, the young woman working reception (who had no obligation to help us in any way), quickly rushed over to help remove the twigs in a way that would not rip my dress. It's little moments like that thro... Read more

  • The staff at Goggleworks are amazing! Margaret is wonderful, kind, organized, responsive, and her staff during both the set up and wedding were so wonderful. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to be helpful to accommodate any need we had. I really can't say enough good things about the experience. The space itself was exactly what we wanted, and it really gave me the opportunity to do the wedding that I had pictured in my mind. So many of our guests complimented us on choosing such a fun, interesting space and enjoyed looking around in the galleries. I would recommend it to anyone!

  • Cheap but gorgeous industrial rooms that made my wedding so classy. The coordinator replied to every email and little questions so fast. They supplied all tables, chairs, lighting.

  • I had my ceremony in reception in studio 238 and it could not have been more perfect. Margaret, the event coordinator, was always available to answer questions, suggest local vendors, and was so helpful in greeting guests the day of the wedding. She was organized, efficient, and has seen it all so no problem can stress her out. The room itself is gorgeous, with market lights and exposed brick and an attached kitchen. The room is really a blank canvas that you can turn into whatever you want. The day before setup that you can choose to make use of turned out to be perfect for us as we had almost nothing to setup the day of. We got so many compliments on the venue and guests enjoyed walking around the gallery before dinner. There's also private parking, a plus in Reading! Overall our day was magical and I can't believe a room that beautiful was in our budget. I wish I could do it all over again!

  • Cannot say enough about our wedding experience at GoggleWorks!! We had our reception in studio 238. The space itself is beautiful (loved the hardword floors, exposed brick and ceiling and overall industrial feel), affordable (!!) and so unique. We loved that it was a total blank slate and we could completely make the space and wedding our own by bringing in all of our own vendors and decor. It was difficult to adequately explain our non-traditional venue to guests prior to the wedding and could tell many didn't "get" it, but we got so so many compliments after our guests experienced it all. Beyond the venue, the GoggleWorks staff was incredible. Working with Margaret (the events director) was an amazing experience. She was so sweet, responsive and patient (answering every small question we had!) throughout the entire planning process. And on set-up day, she was a huge help; she was readily available all day, checked in on us and made sure we had everything we needed (she even save... Read more

  • Where can I even begin?! The GoggleWorks cocktail and reception space was exactly what my husband and I were looking for, as we didn't want the typical cookie cutter country club reception. Cocktail hour in the Cohen Gallery and reception in Studio 238 couldn't have been more beautiful where we could really let our ideas of what we wanted our wedding to look like flourish. Don't get me wrong it's a lot of work but I know no one else will have a wedding like ours! Margaret was such a joy to work with! So easygoing and responsive, I can't thank her enough!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough stars for this place. I have a million good things to say, but I'll try to keep it short. 1. Two words: Margaret. Murphy. Event-coordinator extraordinaire. She was efficient (and that is an understatement), friendly, fun, kind, responsive, professional and so so very helpful. I really could not have imagined a better on-site event coordinator. She helped us make the Goggleworks feel like our space, and not just some random rental facility. She really helped make this an amazing day. She helped us make set up so easy as well. 2. The space itself is AMAZING! We needed to do something indoors since our wedding was in December, but we didn't want it to feel like it was a stuffy, formal space. The exposed brick and ibeams and pipe with the large windows really made for an incredible atmosphere. I had MANY guests come tell us that this was an incredible venue, and it was!! I honestly couldn't have pictured anything better for my wedding day.

    responded with the following comments.

    Liz, I couldn't be happier to hear of your positive experience with us. You, your family and friends were so fun to work with and made my job effortless. I am very grateful that your day turned out how you had imagined it! Thanks so much for your support of GoggleWorks. Wishing you all the best, always!

  • My husband and I live in Chester County, PA (which is extremely expensive) and most of the venues near us were booked a year in advance and I was completely uninterested in a Country Club-style wedding. Both being art majors, we wanted to have creative control over everything at our wedding--and Goggleworks is the place for that! When you get the venue, you pretty much get that..the venue. We had to find a caterer and do all the decorating ourselves, which i LOVED doing, by the way. Margaret was very quick to respond when I had first started contacting her about renting the venue, and was nothing but helpful on the day of set up! Our wedding was on a Saturday and they gave us the entire day Friday to set up, and the entire day Sunday to tear down. And if you like doing that, like me, you'll have a lot of fun doing it! If you're a creative person it's definitely the blank canvas you want to create the wedding of your dreams! We had our ceremony in Chester County and then everyone dr... Read more

  • We had my daughter's wedding and reception at GoggleWorks this weekend. From the start of planning to the event everything was perfect. The venue is so unique and perfect since the bride and groom are graphic designers. Margaret the event planner was a delight to work with. The staff who helped us on all 3 days were always professional and so pleasant. Cara was with us the day of the wedding, she was awesome. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure my daughter's day was perfect. And it was!

  • Everything ran so smoothly on our wedding day and it was the perfect venue for us! The staff was always so helpful and the rental prices are so reasonable. I know having the venue for 3 days to have decorating time and tear down time made our lives so much easier, and it allowed more time with family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
