The Observatory is equipped with a built-in sound system for preferred vendors. A wireless microphone & podium will be provided for your speeches. A TV and stand are available at additional cost of $250.00.
Please review custom floorplan created at the time of booking. Your consultant can provide further details on customization and head table options 6 months prior to your wedding date at your details meeting.

The Observatory will be available the day of your wedding by 2:30PM for décor placement. If an earlier décor time becomes available, your Consultant will let you know.
Vendors can access The Observatory directly through the side entrance located on the east side of the building
Décor Restrictions & Considerations
Spencers does allow for real candles but requires that the vessel be 1” higher than the flame, so that it is contained. We do not allow for tapered candles unless accompanied by the glass hurricane cover. Please do not place more than 10 candles per table. No petroleum-based candles allowed. No Dancefloor Decals will be permitted.
- Spencers does not permit any decorative elements to be adhered to the windows or walls.
- Indoor smoke machines and indoor fireworks are not permitted.
- If you are planning on including a ‘sparkler sendoff’, please ensure you have a bucket filled with sand so guests can dispose of the used sparkler safely.
Client Supplied Place Settings and Linens:
If you are planning on ordering custom charger plates, glassware, cutlery, plateware
and linens, these items would need to be delivered the day prior to ensure enough time to set the room and taken home the evening of the wedding. We recommend ordering 5% extra for your cutlery and linen napkins. Please note Spencers cannot be held responsible for any missing items.
Décor Drop Off:
Non-perishable items such as your card box, guest book and seating chart may be delivered the day prior to your wedding at the rehearsal or during a scheduled décor drop off. This can be booked with your dedicated Special Event Consultant during your details meeting. Perishable items such as your wedding cake and flowers must be delivered the morning of your wedding.
