    The Loft was perfect for our wedding!

    Everyone at distillery events were a pleasure to work with. I am so so happy we chose the Loft for our wedding celebration. It was everything we wanted: great mood, intimate, romantic setting, rustic, amazing food and great photo opportunities!

    A dream of a day

    We chose the Loft as we wanted a venue that had more natural beauty vs one that we could decorate to the 9s. Our preference was to spend more on food than decor (cause really who doesn't like food) and besides flowers, nothing really needed to be done to enhance the place. Everyone (and I mean everyone of the 76 people) had a fantastic night full of superb food, and excellent service. My coworker who attended left with a recipe for the meal she had written on a napkin. 0

    Rebecca was the coordinator for organizing everything and helping us choose our food as well as designing our menu and made everything fun.

    The venue is pricy, but if you factor in location, actual quality of food and service (which to me is a must if you're forking out thousands), natural beauty and layout, it really isn't so bad. Instead of spending thousands on a decorator, spend a little more on the food and venue it self and you won't regret it!

    Best venue!
    The coordinators are amazing, the food was incredible, the servers are top notch! I would have a party here every year if I could.
    Everything was done so nicely and they really go all out for you.
    Highly recommend!

    Very Disappointed on the Day

    I was SO disappointed by the Distillery service on my wedding day. We had a decent time during the planning phase (they spelled my name wrong on the menu at our tasting though - maybe I should have taken that as a sign!). On the wedding day, there was a huge delay in food service after the cocktail hour. They brought everyone in to be seated for dinner (I have no idea why they did that if they weren't ready), and then all of our guests sat for OVER AN HOUR waiting for food. We didn't even have bread on the tables. I was mortified! I kept walking around to assure the guests that food was coming (not at all how I'd hoped to spend the evening). When the food finally arrived, it looked NOTHING like it had during the tasting. For example, my vegetable curry was mostly rice (at the tasting, there was so much delicious curry that the rice wasn't even visible), and the papadum (which was beautifully folded and presented at the tasting meal), was just a flat disc (and the server dropped mine on the floor!).
    I had also specifically requested that shots not be served (for various reasons), but the bartenders served them anyway.
    When we discussed our issues with the manager afterward, and although she admitted it was their fault and apologized, she said that since we had already paid they could not (or would not) provide us with any amount of refund.
    When you book a wedding in the Distillery, you are paying a premium for venue/location and high-quality food/service. When 50% of those things go wrong, it's impossible to leave a high recommendation.
