  • We had our wedding The Loading Dock in May 2017. Our wedding was a dream come true and we could not have been happier with our venue choice. While at first we found ourselves intimidated by the “blank canvas” that the space presents, the team at the venue was incredibly accommodating, not only to us and our families, but to our vendors, many of whom they recommended. The space allows for almost anything in terms of décor and we ended up having a “secret garden” theme with string lights and greenery. Our wedding was completely unique and unlike any other wedding we had attended in the past. The food options were awesome and not only looked beautiful but tasted amazing. We were told by so many of our guests how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. Finally, the team was so attentive, whether it was allowing us to drop decorations off early, to making sure we always had a drink or a special platter of the food - they exceeded our expectations!
