The Upper Loft at Loft 310 was the perfect place to hold our wedding reception. Kimberly and Sara were so easy to work with, quick to respond to all emails and were very accommodating of any and all of our special requests. They even went above and beyond on a few items that... Read More definitely impressed our guests. The loft space was clean and modern and didn't require much decoration to look great. Choosing an all inclusive venue and knowing that one entity was handling the room set up, food, bar, etc. definitely made the planning process easier. The service and the food were amazing - way better than 'typical wedding food'. Having access to a Ready Room just off the main hall was such a nice benefit for our bridal party to be able to relax and have a place to store their stuff and for the band to be able to have a space to relax during their breaks. Guests were so impressed with the facility, staff and amenities and told us that it was one of the most fun weddings they've ever been to. Overall, we are very happy that we chose to have our reception at Loft 310 and would highly recommend this venue.

We were married on the SkyDeck, the rooftop venue above Loft310, in May. We got very lucky with weather, but there was a backup plan in place laid out by the staff in case of rain. It turned out fantastic, our guests were very impressed with the views. I was surprised when they... Read More said they could host of wedding of over 200 on the space, but the layout was very nice. While we took pictures, our guests had a cocktail hour in the Gatsby room that is connected to Loft310. It was an extra fee, but worth it. Very stylish. The reception was in the Loft main room. The food was fantastic, especially the appetizers. The staff was friendly and quick to remove plates and deliver the main course, either chicken parm or prime rib. Nice portion sizes, everyone seemed happy with their meal. The DJ they provided (can't recall his name!) was a lot of fun. The call before the ceremony from him was nice to get on the same page with music choices. Overall, we would recommend this venue for any wedding where you want something unique or classic. Kimberly and Sara were very easy to work with and someone was in the room at all times to answer questions. Thank you!

We loved our wedding reception in the Upper Loft! What grabbed me initially about the Loft spaces when looking at wedding venues was the exposed brick, the open layouts and the simple elegance of both spaces. They were pretty much blank slates - perfect for using as little or as... Read More much decoration as we wanted. We chose to have our cocktail hour on the SkyDeck, and our reception in the Upper Loft. We hired our florist to design hanging installations with greenery, and it was absolutely breath-taking. We also put greenery on the walls, and utilized their crystal chandeliers. I decided early on that I wanted to rent out the Penthouse Suite for the night before the wedding, and also the wedding night. My bridesmaids and I had such a fun night together in the suite before the wedding, and then woke up to a beautiful room full of windows and light where we had our hair and make-up done the next morning (our hair stylists from Cheeky Strut got us ready in the Penthouse)! We had a full kitchen to make breakfast in and had the ultimate getting-ready experience! It was also really convenient to stay in the Penthouse with my husband for our wedding night - after hanging out with our guests on the Skydeck after the wedding, we just walked downstairs and retired for the evening! Shannon P was so present throughout the entire wedding planning process and answered countless questions and emails from me, many times within a matter of an hour or so! Katie was also such a great resource before signing with the Loft, and was equally as responsive to all of my questions. I'm very glad that we chose the Loft 310 to host our wedding reception, our guests were blown away and had the most amazing time! I definitely recommend this venue to brides who want to have their wedding in a central location with plenty of things for their guests to do, there was never a dull moment. Thank you to Loft 310 for helping us create our perfect wedding day. :)

This place was incredible, cannot say enough good things about the venue or the staff!

We next moved one floor down to the Upper Loft, which is a gorgeous space with a similar feel to the skydeck, with huge windows along 3 of the walls. The food was very, very good, had several guests tell us it was the best they'd had at a wedding. I'm a vegetarian, and the veggie option was great, not just an afterthought like at many places. It was really great to have a venue that took care of all of the food & drink - one stop shopping! They had a great bar package for us, including some craft beers & top shelf liquors. If you live near or in Kalamazoo & are getting married, you absolutely owe it to yourself to see this incredible space!

From the time my husband, Justin, and I went on our first tour of the facility we fell in love with the urban chic setting. It was exactly what we were looking for. Kimberly was our initial point of contact and she was such a kind and patient individual and sat with us going over multiple details until we felt we had all our questions answered. Even after the tour I emailed her multiple times for clarification and she responded immediately despite it being a weekend. Upon signing our contract with the Entertainment District we began working with Shannon, whom was an absolute gem. Shannon and her counterpart, Amanda, worked together throughout the wedding preparation and were both present during our tasting and final meeting to ensure everyone was on the same page and able to step in if the unexpected were to arise, giving us peace of mind. Justin and I live on the east side of Michigan and chose to have our wedding in Kalamazoo since this is where I’m original from. This was the perfect venue for an out of town couple with limited time to make the trip back and forth. The venue provided all the tables and linens, the catering, the DJ, and they coordinated with all outside vendors to ensure minimal stress on our part. They also provide a Google Document with all the information one needs including the tasting schedule, the meal and beverage package selected, payment details, the ceremony details and timeline, reception details & timeline, contact information, parking information, DJ form, and the master guest list with formulas created to know exactly how many meal types were at each table. It was so simple and became my lifeline to ensure all details were covered. The facility itself is impeccable, very trendy, and the staff runs like clockwork. If there were any glitches during our wedding day, I was not made aware of them and from my perspective everything ran so smoothly with no stress. I can honestly say the Entertainment District put on the most perfect wedding for us and made sure it was “The Best Day Ever.”
