Felix and Fingers is quite happy that Nelson Properties renovated this fun historical venue in 2010. It’s a great place for many events, especially weddings. We had a great time at the Blacks Building Sky Room wedding. It was truly a family affair.
The Black’s building is comprised of their Sky Room and their Tea Room. Both of these can be combined for a venue that will seat up to 400 people. This Blacks Building Sky Room wedding took place in the Sky Room. This 8th floor banquet room overlooks the water in downtown Waterloo, Iowa and boasts gorgeous and fun historic touches. Definitely a favorite for local brides. And we can see why. We were quite impressed with the staff and the food in addition to the chic venue.

Our bride and groom’s children were the attendants for this wedding. And we found them to be an amazing family. Rachelle and Jason have raised an awesome group and we were especially touched by Rachelle’s speech. From both her and Jason, during the speech she compared their family to a baseball team. She touched on how important each and every child was to the family, or team, as a whole. Following that, the bride’s oldest daughter gave a speech that was simply beautiful. There was not a dry eye in the house and it was evident that there is a lot of love in this family.
As far as music goes, well, we felt like rock stars. There were a large group of teen girls and every time we played one of their favorites, the loud screaming made us feel quite special indeed. They had a specific request for the cup song and we had about 20 of them, along with cups, on the dance floor. They had it down for sure! In lieu of traditional first dances, the couple danced with their children which even further solidified this group as a forever family. They were just a great group and we couldn’t have been happier that we were so lucky to be a part of it all.
