Location of our dreams

Being Tampa natives and frequently being at armature works enjoying summer evenings and walks around the river walk - Armature works was from the jump first on our list! Samantha and her team were nothing but a dream to work with and although we did get rained in on the rooftop I still have no complaints of our special day!!

Rescheduled COVID wedding

June 13, 2020 was the date scheduled for my son's wedding. When COVID happened, we quickly realized that with 90% of our guests coming from out of town, many from the NY/NJ area that we would need to reschedule. We spoke with Sarah Elwood, who quickly helped us to change our date to Nov. 7th. At the beginning of the summer as things went down hill, we decided that a small wedding with the immediate family who were in the area would be best. We saw on Armature's website that they were now offering small wedding options. We called Sarah and rescheduled for a 3rd time to August 28th! Well the 3rd time was the charm! We were able to have the wedding and reception all in 1 room. We still had a great meal by Puff n Stuff, and had a wonderful DJ from Inpulse! Sarah was fantastic to work with, and even though we weren't able to have our extend family and friends, it was a beautiful and memorable event! Thank you Sarah and Armature Works!

Thank you Armature Works!

Cannot recommend Armature Works enough!

This was the first vendor we booked. The second we saw the venue we were in love and knew it was the right choice for us. Being in the wedding industry, I had very particular taste and wanted something unlike the typical ballroom or beach. Armature works is modern, well kept, and offers amazing additions with audio visual and upgraded linens. Our venue coordinator, Rachel, was extremely helpful and responsive with all of my questions. She ensured everything we had discussed was executed flawlessly. Thank you for calming my nerves and taking over, allowing for me to be the bride for once!
