Great Venue and Staff!

The Bel Air Armory was a great venue, beautiful both inside and outside. We had our ceremony in the courtyard and the reception inside in the hall. The front steps and the courtyard were perfect settings for our pictures as well! Julia and the other staff were quite responsive and wonderful to work with! I highly suggest the Armory to anybody else looking for a wedding or other event venue!
