Ballrooms designed for flexibility

Getting married at SKY Armory is so much more than just booking a wedding venue. We are part of your wedding planning team and want the planning to be as joyful as the wedding day. Your wedding planner helps build your event team, keeps you on schedule with the planning process, and is a sounding board

for your questions. Our culinary team prepares your personalized menu from scratch with fresh and

in-season produce to create some of the best food in Central New York.

We highly recommend taking a tour to learn what makes how we do weddings so magical.

Each couple getting married at SKY Armory falls in love (pun intended) with how flexible we are with our event spaces. We like to say ‘mi casa, su casa’ because we want you to know that when you’re in our home, it’s your home and want your style reflected in all aspects of the celebration. Instead of saying ‘no,’ we find a way.

SKY Armory is the culmination of a 20 year journey of events and entrepreneurship.

Our story begins in 1996 when Nicole Samolis, CSEP left her career in retail management and ventured into the emerging event industry and launched The Events Company. Since that time our focus has been on the client and planning events in various event venues, barns and tents across Central New York, the US and even Mexico. As we traveled to other cities and experienced unique venues an idea began to grow and saw the opportunity of creating our own unique venue in our own backyard – the concept of SKY Armory was born.

Because we’re planners first, our concept for a unique venue is very different from the traditional banquet facility.  We are still client centric and customize the event experience.  As Nicole likes to say, ‘we fixed all of our pet peeves with the other venues’ – When you come to SKY you have an event planner, we’re focused on exceptional service, made from scratch food, great wines (served in the appropriate wine glass), craft beers, decor and anything else a client would need for their event.

Our commitment to downtown Syracuse centered our search for a building and found the former Wells & Coverly Department Store. We gutted the building, blew out the back wall to create a modern entry atrium that put us into the hub of Armory Square. It was a labor of love. – and in October of 2014 we opened our doors and have wowing our clients and their guests since.


It takes a Team:

Nicole and Kevin Samolis are the owners and proprietors leading the team to fulfill our vision of being a venue like no other, where the environment, the food, the beverages and our hospitality meet to create amazing events that you and your guests will be talking about for years.
