Skyline provided our outdoor lights, dance floor, generators, and indoor fans for the barn at the last minute when our wedding weekend turned out to be unseasonably hot!! They also let us wait until just a few days before the event to decide about our rain tent on reserve, which was really helpful as the forecast kept changing. Everything the provided worked wonderfully. Reliable, professional, and high quality.
We were able to work with Skyline because our venue added a semi-permanent tent on their property. The tent alone was gorgeous. High peaked, plenty of space, with gorgeous reclaimed hardwood floors. We added fans and pole drapes which amped up the comfort and elegance of our reception. We always received quick, friendly, and flexible responses from Skyline- definitely recommend!
We ordered the tent for our catering company through them. The staff was very easy going and knowledgeable of our venue as they have a partnership with Keswick Vineyards. We did have one issue with the Asian lanterns that were still up from the wedding the day before ours. It took awhile to get ahold of them, but once we did they were prompt about coming back out to the venue to remove them.
I had my heart set on a Sperry Tent, but once I found out how much it would be I didn't think it could happen. They found out we were getting married at Pharsalia and we were able to negotiate the price and get the tent of our dreams! There's just something old fashioned about their Sperry tents and it fit in really well with the overall feel of Pharsalia. I do wish there was a way that they could prevent the flags from wrapping around the poles. It was a little windy and one of the three flags … got stuck. Not a huge deal, it just took away from the pictures. Read More
The choice of venue restricted the tent rental to Skyline Tent Company. The tent for the patio is specific to this location. The lack of competition results in what we believe to be an elevated cost and lack of flexibility. One example is the additional costs for rain adjustments such as sides, awning covering and heaters. The company required early reservation, which they pushed for, and a non-refundable deposit of $1500 for those items.
When we arrived at the venue the day before the wedding, there were bits of glass all over the dance floor and the grass due to broken bulbs from the strung lighting. They had simply left the broken glass there. They promised to come clean it up, but we ended up doing most of the cleaning ourselves.
We were very disappointed with Skyline Tent Company. We would not have given Skyline our business, however, they have an exclusive relationship with the venue where we held our wedding (Clifton Inn), and so we were forced to use them. The customer service was poor and the service overpriced (we did some research). In December, Skyline sent us an initial estimate for tents, lighting, and a dance floor. In January, we had an initial call with a Skyline representative to discuss the event. … After Skyline sent us a revised estimate, it took the representative nearly a month to respond to some of the basic questions about the types of tents and lighting that Skyline offers. A Skyline representative eventually responded with a revised quote (leaving many questions unanswered) and a note that she would be leaving for a weeklong vacation the next day. During this time, we also noticed that Skyline had significantly increased the dance floor size, which also significantly increased the price. Options were never discussed with us. We also discovered that Skyline was charging significantly more than other similar companies in Charlottesville, and more than most companies we contacted in Washington, D.C. and New York. For example, 300 feet of bistro lights was going to cost us $900 at Skyline whereas other companies in Charlottesville charge $400-450. The price difference was similar for dance floor wash lights. We understand that quality and service may vary from vendor to vendor, but our experience did not meet our expectations for satisfactory customer service, much less the “superior service” that Skyline cites in support of its significantly higher prices. In the end, we asked to work with a different Skyline representative who was responsive. We managed to reduce the contract price by $2,000, by getting rid of a few items, and negotiating a reduced cost for the event lighting. Skyline reduced our lighting costs by 30 percent, which meant we still paid more money than if we had gone with another reputable company in town, but at least we were back in the ballpark of fair market value. Unfortunately, Skyline’s business practices reflected poorly on our venue. Read More
