About Skyline

Skyline is a modern wedding venue located in Calgary, Alberta. This sleek event space boasts stunning views of the city’s skyscrapers from its Kensington location. As a full-service venue, couples can relax and enjoy both the planning experience and the big day as everything is seamlessly organized.

Facilities and Capacity

The highlight of Skyline is the romantic panoramas visible from each corner of the building. There are several event spaces within the venue that offer varying views from the city to forested landscapes. Each room boasts wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows for unparalleled scenes and photo opportunities. Couples can choose to drape the windows for a neutral backdrop during ceremonies or other festivities. Designed in a neutral colour palette, the venue’s decor emphasizes the views. Zone 2, the largest function room, is spacious enough for 200 guests for a seated dining service and up to 225 cocktail-style. Alternately, the slightly smaller Zone 1 can accommodate 150 attendees for a cocktail reception. Both Zones 1 and 2 feature sweeping vistas of Calgary’s skyline. Soon-to-be newlyweds can also choose Zone 3 for their celebration, which is suitable for 80 seated guests or 150 standing. The spaces are separated by dividers that staff can remove for couples who wish to avail of the entire venue.

Services Offered

Skyline offers full-service wedding packages that cover everything from catering to florals. When couples book the venue, they will work with a professional wedding coordinator who assists with organizing each detail. Clients can customize the space with a wide selection of decor and rental items, as well as bespoke floral arrangements designed by a professional florist. The venue has partnered with many local musicians and DJs who provide high-quality entertainment for events held here. Uplighting services are also available to personalize the function room. Catering is arranged by the venue’s catering company according to the needs of the clients and their event. Couples can choose plated, buffet, station, and hors d’oeuvre styles to satisfy their guests. The wedding coordinator can organize a tasting so soon-to-be newlyweds can sample their favourite dishes.

    Top notch!

    I can not say enough good things about the skyline venue and it's staff! We had an absolutely amazing time at our 20's themed gatsby wedding. The venue was beautifully decorated inside and our spectacular Calgary skyline backdrop was the icing on the cake. The food was superb and beyond our expectations! Peter and his staff were incredible and I would highly recommend Skyline to anyone thinking of having a memorable event! I want to get married all over again just to experience the day over again!! Much love! Shauna and Brendan Tutty

    Incredible venue, incredible staff

    We had our wedding on August 8th, 2020 at Simply Elegant's skyline venue and it couldn't of gone more perfectly. A HUGE thank-you to Peter, Jade, Rob and all of your wonderful staff at Simply Elegant for putting on the wedding of our dreams. Jade and Peter were extremely accommodating through our wedding planning with Covid and ensured that our guests felt safe, comfortable and everything was set up for social distancing. The ceremony went seamlessly, our dinner was fantastic, nobody waited more than 3 minutes for a drink to be served to them, it was INCREDIBLE. The venue itself was decorated beautifully and they captured my vision perfectly. The bridal suite (pictured below) was one of my favourite parts. Thank-you to everyone at Simply Elegant for all of your hard work and for ensuring we had the best wedding.

    Incredible Service

    I cannot say enough good things about the service at Skyline Room. COVID really threw a wrench in our original wedding plans, and Skyline was so incredibly accommodating with our forever changing plans, reduced guestlist and reduced budget. They definitely made the entire COVID transition seamless for us and went above and beyond our expectations. In order to keep ourselves and guests safe, we implemented a few COVID safety practices. First off, we limited our guest list to our core people, so immediately family and best friends and we request that everyone guest get tested for COVID the week before the wedding, and then asked that they limit their exposure to the outside world. We also incorporated a pin system, where any guest could wear one of the pins provided and that would signify that they would like to maintain 6 feet of distance when chatting to another guest. There was also hand sanitizer available when guests first walked into the venue, on every table as well as a mask for every person. Skyline also provided table service for all drinks to avoid any gatherings at the bar. All in all, every guest at our wedding felt safe and are still raving about the service provided by Skyline. Thank you Peter, Jade and the rest of staff for pulling off a safe COVID wedding for us.

    Simply Beautiful - Simply Elegant

    We had a fantastic experience with Simply Elegant for our wedding at Skyline and recommend them wholeheartedly! Weeks later, we are still getting texts that the food was awesome.

    Peter & Jade were wonderful to deal with and paid attention to every single detail.

    The food was definitely a highlight of wedding, just as we'd hoped, and we keep getting tons of compliments on it.

    We've already recommended you highly to friends. Thank you!!
