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.

    Our Wedding Finally ( Postponed 2 times)

    This venue and the staff are amazing! Everyone is so accommodating and flexible on all aspects. Peter and Jade and Sharon are just a few of the amazing people that helped us plan our wedding at this amazing venue. They are so great with all current protocols and make sure everyone is safe at all times. It was a very smooth and easy process! Food is delicious! The view of YYC downtown is breath taking. The venue size is huge and they decorated it just the way we wanted it done. Really outstanding service and job. :)

    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

    Experienced and Efficient Company!

    We had to rejig our wedding at the last minute to accommodate COVID changes, and contracted Simply Elegant and the Skyline venue to help us out. Everyone from Simply Elegant we had the pleasure of dealing with was helpful, friendly, and with great ideas to bring our wedding to life. It may have been a small event, but it was the highlight of our year!

    We had exactly the amount of involvement and decision-making which we wanted, and their sub-contracted vendors were also excellent (this is usually a question mark!) - we loved our officiant, musician, transportation (stretch truck limo!!) and catering. We received rave reviews from our guests on the food and drink, and honestly have no complaints from the day itself. Things went as smoothly as possible. We loved the view at Skyline (the getting-ready "room" was awesome!), and the minimal decor which we worked with them on. A special shout-out to the catering/serving staff, as they really went above and beyond to make my elderly grandparents comfortable during the meal.

    One comment I would make would be that there was some confusion before the event regarding the draft invoices - there were a lot of them floating around, and some people had outdated ones. But once we sorted that out, it was all good. Everything was accounted for correctly and was great value. Jade, Sharon, Peter, and the others were all very prompt in replying to emails, and were a pleasure to deal with! All in all, we look back on our event with great appreciation, and it is very much thanks to Simply Elegant/Skyline!

    Skyline's reply:

    Thank you both so much for your kind words. You were an amazing and fun couple to work with and we were thrilled that we could be a part of your special day.
    All the best to you and Javier.

    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.
