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. :)Sent on 20/11/2020

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 TuttySent on 13/10/2020

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confusion before the event regarding the draft invoices - there were a lot of them floating around, and some people had outdated ones.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!Sent on 27/12/2020
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.

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.Sent on 11/08/2020

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.Sent on 22/07/2020
Skyline's reply:Thank you Stacie and Garrett - we are so very grateful for your kind words and feedback and wish you guys all the love. ❤️

My experience with Simply Elegant was outstanding. Starting with creating my vision to the day of the Wedding. I would recommend Simply Elegant in a heart beat. Everything was beautiful and I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. Everything was taken care of with so much attention to detail. Thank you so much.Sent on 21/05/2020
