The Armour House, a Stylish, Sophisticated and Unique mansion with gorgeous formal gardens where our mission is to create an unforgettable experience for our guests in a unique and timeless setting.
What sets your brand or business apart?
Our venue is unique with the spectacular gardens and historic mansion reminiscent of Italian Villa which transports you to another place. The mansion once belonged to a wealthy industrialist in the early 20th century and still holds that old world charm. Guests are awed by the beauty inside and out and it sets us apart from the usual spaces.
How far in advance should couples book your business?
We book popular months like June and September at least 18 months in advance; Saturdays are always the most sought after but Fridays and Sundays are still an amazing day to celebrate a special day with loved ones, any time of the year!
How did you handle the pandemic? Did our business model change?
Although we were limited at the time for guest counts for event in accordance with State and Local governments, we learned to be creative in our approach by utilizing our multiple rooms to execute multiple “mini” events contained within the larger event. We adapted strict and safe protocols for our guests and staff. We also hosted Anniversary Dinners with past wedding clients to keep them fresh in their minds (for potential friends getting married in the future) and allow the culinary and event teams to be working.
What is your best advice for engaged couples?
Be educated about your venue and vendor. Know what is expected from each of them and the value of the packages they offer. Create a communicative environment with everyone involved to eliminate confusion and reduced frustration from everyone involved. Also TRUST the experts. They’ve been around and are here to make your event the best day ever.
What is your favorite trend for weddings currently?
Personalization, from custom bar signs for the signature cocktails, signs with their names emblazoned in lights or working with their caterer to create appetizers or entrees specific to their ethnic origin.
