When you spend the better part of a year helping a couple plan their wedding, you get to know a lot about them and it’s easy to become invested in their lives. Many Facebook friendships have been forged and we always mention it to each other when we see a SKY couple out at Wegmans or a restaurant around town.
Because we care about the futures of our couples, we’re always thrilled for the new milestones in their lives: buying a house, getting a new job, and for many, having a baby.
We were thrilled that Brittany and Jonathan, who were married at SKY this past January, wanted to have their baby shower here as well. It worked out that their shower was in our Betts ballroom, which was the same space where they held their intimate winter wedding celebration.

The baby shower was held in mid-October. Since Brittany and Jonathan were expecting a girl (now arrived!), we draped the tables in raspberry-, watermelon-, and aubergine-colored linens. Table centerpieces featured mixed ivory floral arrangements by our in-house designer and, near the gift table and lounge seating, large gold balloons from Balloons Over Syracuse spelled out the expected arrival’s name.
In addition to the gift opening, a raffle, and some traditional baby shower games, the couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious brunch that included a breakfast taco station:
Apple Cider Donuts
Mini Fruit Tartlets
Stuffed French Toast
Home Fries with peppers and onions

It was an honor for our team to be part of two major milestones in Brittany and Jonathan's life together and help them through the planning process for both events. We hope they are only the first of many SKY wedding couples with whom we'll get to experience that!
Planning a special party? We'd love to help! We'll work with you to create a festive and meaningful celebration.
