I just spent the last year+ planning my second daughter's wedding at the Armour House, and if I could give them 10 stars, I would. The beauty of the venue speaks for itself in pictures. I can't imagine a better setting for a wedding. But what you're never sure of when you book a venue is how much you can rely on the staff to care as much about your daughter's "big day" as much as she does. Well, the entire staff of the Armour worked tirelessly to make sure the evening went perfectly. A special thank you must to go to Christine Sward. Christine was my contact throughout and my praise for her just doesn't do her justice: she answered all my questions promptly and completely, she made suggestions, she worked with all our crazy ideas, she was INCREDIBLY organized, and she worked with us to keep our expenses within budget. Christine may have just put more work into this wedding than we did. She was there at 9am the morning of, after not going home until 1am after the wedding from the night before. The rest of the staff was also incredible: always pleasant, highly skilled, gracious, etc. Several of our guests commented on the stellar service during cocktail hour and dinner. The only negative to the Armour House is that, because it is such an incredible venue, it books up 1-and-a-half to two years in advance. If you're newly engaged and looking for a place to create some amazing memories and photos, make an appointment now! Thank you so much Christine and staff! And credit for the beautiful photos goes to Ruthie Hauge Photography...she's amazing! (separate review)

Breathtaking Venue and Gardens
The Historic Armour House provided a unique and timeless setting for my son's and daughter-in-laws wedding. Their dream wedding came true at this prestigious mansion with grandeur gardens. Our guests were so impressed with its beauty they are still talking about it. The food was delicious with beautiful presentation. The service was outstanding! I highly recommend this venue to everyone!

Armour House is an intimate location for a wedding venue. Beauty both inside and outside, you can have a lovely ceremony in the garden or inside the mansion. The service and attention to detail by Christine and Alisa is excellent and you worn't be disappointed. Lake Forest Flowers loves working with Armour House to create the perfect day for their couples!
