“It was the most perfect event we could have ever imagined. This past year of planning was so much work, but walking in to the space on our wedding day, it was all of that work, and then taken to an entirely new level. It came to life before our eyes.” – Sarah, bride


“Choosing SKY Armory for our reception was

CORE VALUES

the best choice my husband and I could have made.

Be the best.

The reception was beautiful. Everything I could have

Care about each other.

ever envisioned came to life! The food was top notch, service was great, and everything was perfect!” – Nichole, bride

Respect our vendor partners. Focus on providing an exceptional guest experience. Support our community. Have FUN!

“Our overall experience with SKY was absolutely, undoubtedly, perfect. My wife and I are very detail oriented people and made a lot of demands to SKY which were executed flawlessly. The food was our favorite part: the head chef does NOT mess around. We told him we wanted something outside of the normal Beef, Chicken, and Vegetarian plus we wanted some Ukrainian flair and accents. Our menu was so incredible we could not wait to put it into print on the invite. Still, to this day, people rave about the food at our wedding.” – Nick, groom

OUR MANTRA People will forget what you did; People will forget what you said, But they will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou
