Our creative, experienced event planners will take care of all the details you desire, from impeccably fresh and thoughtfully prepared cuisine, artful décor, exciting entertainment, and all the other services that will make your event spectacularly effortless and comfortable for you and your guests.

    When you select SKY Armory for you event, your event planner will make the planning process super simple by working with you at three key meetings: 

    • Tell us your style! Your first meeting is the Vision Meeting, where we discover your style and discuss all aspects of the event: ceremony, food and beverage preferences, colors for linens, centerpieces and other décor, music and entertainment, and personalized touches.  From this meeting we develop the event plan to include design, timing, layout, and amenities with associated costs.
    • This is the plan! At your next meeting, we’ll present The Event Plan. You’ll get to see the design come to life with sample table set-ups, taste the proposed menu, and review event layout and timing. During this meeting, we’ll fill in any blanks in the plan and make any changes you desire. Throughout the planning process, you will receive regular updates on the progress of your event.
    • That’s a wrap!  Your final meeting is the Wrap Up, where we get your final guest counts, review all final event details, and answer any questions you may have.
