For those who are newly engaged or had to put their plans on pause due to the pandemic, we invite you to The Reception; an Interactive Wedding Experience that allows guests to visualize their wedding
Coming up on its third year, The Reception is a one-of a kind wedding planning extravaganza that should not be missed. With 2022 being projected to be the biggest year in the wedding industry, The Reception will take place at the perfect time.
“Over the past few months and even weeks, we have seen a spike in wedding and special event space requests,” says Ashley McChesney, Director of Events at Armature Works. “We’re excited to welcome couples back into our spaces and look forward to being a part of their big day.
The Reception is not your typical wedding expo. Guests can expect live demonstrations from 45 vendors, two staged wedding ceremonies, as well as a “Reception” with live music, lite bites and desserts in the Gathering. All aimed to help guests visualize their big day.
Some of the best local wedding and reception related vendors in the Tampa Bay area will be onsite showcasing everything that goes into your special day. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with an array of local vendors such as photographers, florists, DJ’s, live musicians, cake artists, stationary & gift providers, preferred caterers, party and furniture rentals and more.
Experience this exclusive event Tuesday, January 11, from 5pm-8pm, in The Gathering and its adjacent pre-function event spaces at Armature Works. Tickets for The Reception are just $20 and includes entry plus one guest, a complimentary glass of champagne, as well as keepsake tote bag. Purchasers may add additional guests at checkout for $10 a person. Tickets do not include service fees.

The Heights District
The Heights is a 50-acre mixed-use urban district located along the Hillsborough River, just north of Downtown Tampa. When completed, The Heights District will include hotels, apartments, condos, office buildings, restaurants, retail stores, green spaces, parking garages and more. The Heights District is anchored by the award-winning Armature Works, a 73,000-square foot historic warehouse now reimagined as the signature food and entertainment destination in the Tampa Bay area.

Once a maintenance and storage warehouse for TECO (Tampa Electric Company) streetcars and trolleys more than a century ago, Armature Works is now a fully restored mixed-use building that breathes new life into the historic Tampa Heights neighborhood. Armature Works includes the Heights Public Market, a variety of restaurants and bars, a 10,000 square foot gathering space, two pre-function event spaces totaling nearly 9,000 square feet, a 2,500 square foot Theatre and “Bay 3,” a 11,000 square foot co-shared workspace. In addition, Armature Works hosts over 500 private events and programs more than 200 public events annually.
The area south of Armature Works includes an 8,000 square foot pier, 28 boat slips and various green spaces. Additionally, and along the waterfront is Stones Throw, a waterside seafood restaurant and bar and Urban Kai, a kayak and paddle board shop. One of Tampa’s most ambitious community projects, the Riverwalk, extends beyond Armature Works connecting the Heights District to the downtown core.
