The Armory Event Hall
The Armory is a stunning 100 year old brick building with original hard wood floors and a unique history. Everyone at the wedding agreed, it was a beautiful setting for a wedding and gave it a feel that a hotel banquet room could never do.
The price is good, especially considering that you can bring your own alcohol. Basically you rent the room for the day, so you have to understand that you will have to rent dishes/ tablecloths and use your caterer to help with cleaning up. A bit more stressful for planning, but you end up with a wedding that fits you and your husband. The only negatives with this place were, 1) you have to have all of the rentals out by midnight, but a midnight pick-up is really expensive. We ended up paying our caterers to take the rentals back to their place. 2) the guy who was supposed to meet the caterer after cleanup never showed up.
We held our wedding recpetion at the Armory and it was absolutely the perfect setting for us to do so. A restored building from the early 1900's, the buidling is so impressive and elegant that decorating wasn't necessary. In fact, it seemed to lessen the wow-factor of the room. The exposed brick, industrial/modern decor and lighting provided the perfect environment. Ownership has recently changed so the future availability of the room may be uncertain. The previous owner, Amy, was wonderful and easy-giong; allowing us to schedule walk-throughs with vendors and to bring our families/friends by anytime the building was open. It was perfect!
