We had both our ceremony and reception here in the Loft310 and Gatsby venues. Coordinating from Chicago, Shannon and her team were super helpful and accomodating, and a real pleasure to help make our wedding dream come true. Our guests loved our wedding, from the beautiful decor down to the amazing food we had. We can't thank you enough!

Shannon is amazing. Kim was great to work with. The venue was gorgeous. So many of my guests had positive things to say about the butlers, the food, the venue. It was wonderful. We could not have asked for more. Seriously, thank you Shannon... for everything.. it was the best day of our lives on Sunday!

Deciding to have our wedding/ reception at the SkyDeck and Upper Loft, was by far, the best decision we made for our wedding! From start to finish, our expectations were far surpassed by the Private Events staff. Scott and I have no complaints. We have and will continue to recommend our venues to future friends and family.

Kimberly was great at our initial consultation. She does a fabulous job representing the private events team. She was very eager to work with us and cater to our vision. She greeted us warmly at every meeting and remembered us by name.

Shannon was an ANGEL! She was so prompt, warm, and attentive. She truly makes you feel as though your the one and only bride at the venue. Words cannot express how thankful I am to have worked with Shannon and her expertise. I'm not sure how much she gets paid, but I can honestly say it's not enough. She went above and beyond her job description on numerous occasions. She is is such an asset to the Private Events team.

In the last month of planning, Kelly joined the team. She was such a sweetheart. The day of our wedding, she was everywhere working tirelessly. Megan was also fantastic and lead a great team.

You do not need a coordinator if you have a wedding or private event at the SkyDeck, The Upper Loft, or Loft 310. The staff is amazing from top to bottom of the hierarchy, and cover all basis. At any given time, I could see the ladies walking throughout the reception. It felt great to know the event was under control by professionals, and we could truly relax and enjoy our wedding night. Comparing to many of my close friends planning experiences, we truly hit a gold star with our venues. The staff makes everything fun, easy, and truly seamless.

Majority of our guests told us it was truly the best and most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. If your planning a wedding, visit the SkyDeck, Loft 310, and The Upper Loft! Your search will end there!

We planned a weekend to look at venues in Kalamazoo in November. We fell in love Loft310 from our first steps into the venue. We met with the Sales Manager, Kimberly and were instantly impressed by the beautiful Lofts, as well as the SkyDeck. We wanted to do something a bit different for our wedding, as we were having it 600 miles from home (in my fiance's hometown), and were asking a large number of our guests to travel. When we saw the Monaco Bay piano bar, we were sold. We held our ceremony and cocktail hour on the SkyDeck rooftop of the Rosenbaum building and the dinner reception in Monaco Bay.

Kimberly, and her associates Shannon and Kelly were wonderful.
Planning from such a distance was very stressful for me and they did so much to ease my apprehensions, being very responsive to emails.

Our tasting at Monaco Bay, as well as our 2-week meeting prior to the day, helped us to cement our choices. Shannon and Kelly were great in explaining how they would help out on our big day.

The food was amazing.The planning staff, as well as the chef were also very accommodating with the multiple food allergies and celiac disease concerns amongst our guest list.

Monaco Bay provided the unique reception space that we desired for sure. We took advantage of the dueling pianos to add a bit of dramatic flair to the evening for our guests. They definitely added an element of fun, that we'd never experienced at other weddings we've attended as guests.

There were several minors details that fell through the cracks, but nothing that detracted from our big day. For example, we had cupcakes which were serve yourself, but we had asked for our small cutting cake to be served to the wedding party. At the end of the evening, as we were packing up, we realized that this hadn't happened. There was another party going on another floor and we wondered if that impacted the amount of support during our reception. Despite, the minor hiccups, we'd choose SkyDeck and Monaco Bay again in a

We were SO happy with everything about Upper Loft. The events staff was personable and easy to communicate with throughout the entire planning process, and was very organized the day of our reception. With a very large group in Upper Loft, the events staff was able to keep things flowing throughout the evening, and the food came out perfectly. We are still getting compliments on the food, and beautiful venue. They make planning a reception easy and offer plenty of options to choose from.

The girls at the Loft 310 rock! Kimberly is professional, graceful, and kind. She puts her heart into every wedding and reception that she books. She even came to check on me the day prior to my wedding, as I was setting up for my reception in the Loft 310.

Shannon and Kelly are awesome! The entertainment district is seriously lucky to have these girls! For every question and concern I had, they were right on it! When I wasn't happy with my DJ the week of the wedding, they found me a new one within 72 hours. These girls ran their butts off the whole evening to make sure my day went smoothly, and they went above and beyond, checking in with us every so often during the event, to make sure we were happy! These girls developed such a rapport with my husband and I during our wedding planning, and I will actually MISS planning my big day with them! From the food, to the uplighting colors, to the chivari chairs, these girls were perfectionists, and my guests could tell! My reception at the Loft 310 was beautiful!

Having our wedding and reception at Loft 310 was, by far, the best decision we could have made. Everyone talks about having to prepare for something to go wrong on the wedding day. I can honestly say, everything from the day I met Kim at The Loft was perfect. Shannon was our hero- such a pleasure to work with. The entire staff is so friendly, and they think of everything you would possibly need to know in order to plan and execute a perfect wedding. My husband and I wish we could experience the day all over again. From the gorgeous venue, to the immaculate penthouse suite, to the delicious food, to the wonderful staff...we couldn't be happier with Loft 310!

Loft 310 is a gorgeous venue - my husband and I really liked how basic the space was so we could really make it whatever we wanted; any style decor would work beautifully. In addition, Shannon and Kimberly were phenomenal to work with! They always responded promptly to any of our questions, helped us brainstorm to solve problems, and were very flexible when we made changes, even when things came up last minute. They had fun and unique ideas and they offer a fantastic variety as far as food and decorations are concerned. Not to mention, my guests really enjoyed the convenience of being downtown and being able to go out in District Square when our reception was over. I would highly recommend this venue!

Upper Loft is such a BEAUTIFUL venue! We had so many compliments from our guests. Sara and her team were always so upbeat and positive. We only had one issue with the final timeline of events not being correct when sent to me for approval (we had cocktail ceremony and reception in Upper Loft). Once everything was worked out with that all went super smooth!

We did heavy appetizers and the food was awesome! Our guests loved the food and there was PLENTY of it!

DJ Bob did an amazing job! Definitely recommend him for any event.

Loft 310 was great! Sara and Kimberly were wonderful to work with. If I ever had any questions or concerns about anything, they were always an email or phone call away. I loved that we got to choose exactly how our event would be laid out and how it would look and they made it all happen. All the spaces in the Entertainment District are just gorgeous - we enjoyed the new Upper Loft and Ready Rooms and the Gatsby. Everyone enjoyed the food - we had many compliments from our guests on how well it was and how nice the wait staff was.

Loft 310 was great! Sara and Kimberly were wonderful to work with. If I ever had any questions or concerns about anything, they were always an email or phone call away. I loved that we got to choose exactly how our event would be laid out and how it would look and they made it all happen. All the spaces in the Entertainment District are just gorgeous - we enjoyed the new Upper Loft and Ready Rooms and the Gatsby. Everyone enjoyed the food - we had many compliments from our guests on how well it was and how nice the wait staff was.

We were so happy to find Loft 310 as it 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 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, especially the appetizers! 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. Staff was on hand during the event to make sure guests were greeted at the door, directed to the correct floor and to check in through out the night to make sure everything was going well. Overall, we are very happy that we chose Loft 310 as our wedding reception venue and would highly recommend it.

Our day was absolutly beautiful! The Sky Deck was beautiful and the Loft was exactly what we wanted. The food was high quality as well as the drink package. Kim and Sara were easy to work with throughout the planning process. The only issues we encountered was the quality of the sound system in the loft, it was very very poor and our DJ was not allowed to utilize his own equiptment. I would highly suggest upgrading the sound system. The other issue was the lengthy time lapse between getting our salads first and the dressing 10 minutes later...a little unorganized. Other than the minor issues, I think our special day was very enjoyable! I would suggest 310 Loft for a beautiful venue!

Event coordinator was extremely helpful, professional and caring. The event went as planned and would definitely use the facility again as participators seemed extremely pleased.
When the event ended, there were pubs and dance areas that the younger people attended as many of the patrons were new to Kalamazoo and the proximity to Loft 310 was very helpful, convenient and very safe.
I would also recommend using the services of the Gatsby (spelling) as very "classy" and the perfect size for guests to interact before they were seated in the Loft for the reception.

The venue is extremely gorgeous, especially if you are wanting a modern/loft type vibe for your wedding or event. Be aware of extra costs that might not be explained clearly up front (i.e. set-up fees). Just be sure ask specifically what costs, in addition to the actual price of the item, will there be. My event was planned out of state which offered an extra challenge when it came to planning, so keep that in mind when reading my review. All communication was via email, and I thought response time to my emails was a little slow at times, and often only some of my questions would be answered. I also would have appreciated a little more upfront insight, explanation of things, and recommendations/suggestions during the planning process. I often felt like it was a struggle to get information from people. Those are the main concerns I had, but overall I was very satisfied with the process and during the day of the wedding I could not have been happier. Everything ran smoothly, things were on time, and looked exactly as I had imagined (which may have been due mainly to my micromanagement planning process). The only thing I can remember that frustrated me the day of, was trying to find someone during the reception to turn the lights down for the first dance, and no one could be found. We ended up dimming them ourselves and things went fine. Definitely recommend the bride/groom get ready rooms, it's so convenient to be right there, and they also make good storage places for random things. Not to mention, they are so cute! We received nothing but compliments on the venue, the food, and the entire day which made the little bit of frustration during planning well worth it. Planning a wedding anywhere is stressful and here was no exception, but the girls there are fun, energetic, and truly excited to help with your big day!

We rented Loft 310 for our wedding reception and could not have been happier. The food was delicious, service was excellent, DJ was awesome and the staff was very helpful throughout the planning process. You pay a lot of money to hold your event here, but the quality is worth it and your guests will love it. I worked with many people at Loft 310, but the person I interacted with the most was Sara and she was wonderful to work with....she really knew her stuff when it came to event planning. The other staff members were great too! We were missing our bridal party lunch and our wedding reception cupcakes and Loft 310 staff members hunted down our vendor and made sure everything was in order so we did not have to worry about it.

-The wedding planner (Sara) is very helpful and professional. She is very good at what she does.
-There was one particular bartender who was terrible. Multiple guests of ours remarked at how rude he was (it should be noted that he no longer works at The Loft and he had received other complaints from other weddings previously).
-The most disturbing part of our wedding was caught by one of our guests. He noticed that a member of the wait staff was walking around the dance floor and was taking pictures of women dancing with his cellphone. This member of the wait staff was taking the pictures in a concealed manner at his waist level. He had nothing in his hands to make it appear her was working he would just walk as close to the dance floor as possible, take some pictures then circle back toward the kitchen area. Our guest confronted the man and asked him what he was doing because it looked very suspicious. The man just brushed it off as no big deal and walked away into the kitchen area. Our guest then went up to the guy who was tending the door of the Loft entrance. He explained to him what happened and that employee just looked at our guest and laughed it off as no big deal. After our honeymoon our guest told me what had happened and I called Sara to inform her of the transgressions. I gave a description of both men and she said she would handle it. She apologized and informed me that she had never heard of anything like this happening. Although a very nice venue it seems as though they do not have a good vetting process for hiring people to work their events. Just be on the lookout for one of the wait staff to be taking pictures of your guests because I am convinced our wedding was not the first.

Overall I would recommend the vendor to a friend as long as the issue stated above has been addressed and taken care of.

Overall, we really loved Loft310. Our day was beautiful and ran smoothly, thanks to Sara and the rest of the crew. They offer so many selections for everything (food, drinks, dessert bars), the service was great (they had someone to serve and carry mine and my husband's plates!), the food was great, and we got so many compliments on our day.

We did have a pretty frustrating experience leading up to the last couple of weeks. Sara was the third coordinator we dealt with, and the one before her was terrible. I'm almost positive that the previous coordinator lost all of our paperwork. Thankfully, Sara is wonderful and got everything sorted quickly and was really excited for us!

My only real complaint was the DJ. We used the DJ provided by Loft and were pretty disappointed. I made "must play" and "do not play" lists, Sara and I worked out a great timeline, but instead of going off of those, he wanted me to fill out the same information in a totally different set of his paperwork. Our timeline wasn't super involved, and I printed off an extra page to sort our music lists for easier viewing. I clearly marked both pages at the top AND checked the DNP boxes on the entire page for that one. The DJ burned through several of our MP songs during dinner (songs that we wanted to dance to) and played a song that I HATE that was /very/ clearly on the DNP list as the first slow dance to open the floor. My MOH spoke with him, and he outright admitted to not reading the paperwork! His excuse was that "it's the most popular wedding song." They went through the lists together, and that was that. Then he played ANOTHER song on the DNP list. Another bridesmaid went to speak with him, and he was not all that apologetic. Eventually I just let it go, but experience =/= you know better than the couple what they want to hear.

Our wedding at Loft310 was great. Sara and her team really worked hard to give us what we wanted and to make everything great. The food was excellent, and the s'mores bar was a big hit! We had some issues with the DJ that my bridesmaids had to take care of, and overall I wasn't impressed by him. I highly suggest being VERY Type A if you choose DJ services. Get the DJ's contact information ASAP and make sure that he understands what you want/like and what you do not want/like.

Overall the look and feel of the venue was exactly what we were looking for when planning our day. I was disappointed with the fact that our decorations were put out on the tables with cob webs on them and not taken care of until a member of the wedding party pointed it out. We had several guest that didn't show up the day of the event. I think that the extra food should have been offered to us at the end of the night since we did pay for it in advance. We were very disappointed with the DJ assigned to us. He did not follow much of our play list that we provided. We had several occasions where we had to reschedule meetings or go through paperwork to make sure that the original prices we were quoted matched the finial bill. Overall we had a great wedding but there were several things that could have been better taken care of.

I was very pleased with the way everything came together. Thankfully, all of the food is delicious because we received two plated side items that we had never sampled or selected! This wasn't something worth complaining about, but a little more attention to detail would be appreciated for future events. My personality can by type A at times, but on occasion I felt more organized than the event manager which concerned me.

Thanks so much for all of your help in pulling together a night I will never forget! I appreciate your positive attitudes and fun personalities :D

We had a beautiful wedding reception here after our wedding right now the street at United Methodist. The staff was great leading up to the event. It is a very busy venue but I was still able to get my questions answered by the staff. The 3rd floor room was so great, and the views from the enormous windows were great of downtown Kalamazoo.

We did buffet style food after the apps. Everything was great, especially the prime rib. Wow. We got a s'mores bar for dessert, it was so cool! Chocolate fountains used to be the trendy thing, but I hope weddings pick up this new trend. We then stayed the night in the honeymoon suite in the same building. Totally worth it, quite an amazing place to wake up as a married couple.

We absolutely loved our wedding at the Loft and would definitely recommend it to anyone! The space is beautiful and they provide some really amazing decorations (we chose the paper lanterns and they looked wonderful). Sara and Kimberly were both fantastic. On the day of, Sara was running around making sure everything was getting done. She was there to greet the florist, the cake folks, and the photographer. She kept me updated on what was happening and helped us run on schedule. The other staff who were setting up the room were all very nice and professional. During the week leading up to the wedding, Sara and Kimberly were both very helpful answering last-minute questions and helping with other arrangements. I could not be more happy with them. The only tiny criticism I can think of is that we had some issues with getting responses to phone calls and emails early on in the planning process. But this was a small issue, and the staff all went above and beyond in the weeks leading up to the wedding to make sure that everything was perfect.

But this was a small issue, and the staff all went above and beyond in the weeks leading up to the wedding to make sure that everything was perfect. Read less

Overall, we had a great experience! My only complaint was that some of our guests got the wrong food. But other than that, I would recommend Loft310 to anyone!

For the most special day of my life I spent it at Loft 310 in Kalamazoo. We had a reception on the Upper Loft and it was fantastic. The food was amazing and I couldn't have found a better menu anywhere else. They provided the DJ who was awesome and Kimberly and Sara did a perfect job working with me and my hubby getting us everything we needed in a short amount of time. The servers were very pleasant and provided only the best service. It made my special day one that I will ALWAYS remember and I don't think anywhere could've done a better job!!!

Working with the staff at the loft was wonderful until the day of the event. The servers and workers for the event were unprofessional and I often felt as if I was in their way. The appetizers were fantastic. The entrees were inconsistent, and several people including the groom complained the food was undercooked. After completing a survey about my experience I was contacted by the owner. He was very rude and even hung up on me! For this reason I will never recommend the loft or any Entertainment District venues.

The Loft310 was an amazing venue for our wedding reception. It is a complete blank slate which allowed us to do exactly what we wanted. The food was great and the drinks were strong! \r\n\r\nThe staff was slow to respond, changed 3 times in a year, and did not pay as much attention to detail as I would have liked. \r\n\r\nWe used the SkyDeck for our ceremony and the Loft310 for our reception. The rental cost was high as was the alcohol price. However, it was exactly what we were looking for and provided an amazing, unique experience for our guests.

First of all, this venue is very unique and is unlike any other that i have found.... but hold on...

This is where the problem is.. The planning/planners here are brutal to deal with. I know they haven’t been in the wedding game long and seem very overwhelmed but that isn't my problem. From the start they had serious trouble communicating.. Taking a week at times to respond to emails and calls. If you are thinking of booking a wedding here I strongly urge you to ask for everything that would be an upcharge or a fee right from the start. They tried to sneak charges and fees in everywhere. That was a few weeks ago when our wedding was.. now I learn through others currently working with them that there are even more new charges and fees... Even on our wedding night.. they tried giving the bride a hard time about using “special rooms” that they had said were included with the rental of the room and saying they were a separate charge.. (one example of many)

Overall this venue was a complete headache to deal with and even though the wedding was incredible and the venue was unique and beautiful.. I would have gone with the Radisson down the road if I had known what I would have to go through with these people.. Hopefully in the future the pricing strategies are less abusive and the communication improves because this is a very unique and beautiful wedding venue.

I almost didn't write a review here because I am so torn on this place. The venue is seriously amazing. It's unique, fun, fresh, trendy, and not your standard ballroom wedding which I loathe. It really is the best venue in the area and is something that you would find in a big city. It for sure pleasantly surprised our guests. The staff was super helpful with setup and assisted with all the tiny details and in my mind, went above and beyond what was required of them. Beyond the venue and setup, the menu choices are super fun and anything they don't have that you want, they'll whip up for you. The food was a bit cold though upon serving which was a little disappointing. My biggest issue with this place though is the management (not the staff!). I won't go into great deal but the turnover here is ridiculous and it makes it super frustrating to be planning your event when you keep having new points of contact. Also things change rather quickly (perhaps due to turnover?) so I highly suggest getting everything in writing. The owner does not seem to have a good handle on how to run a business and seems to think that all they need is marketing and a good decorator. I also think they there's a lot of nickel and diming going on here, for example, charging to use the bridal room which is basically just a well decorated converted storage space. I like another reviewer, had issues getting responses back in a timely manner but that all seemed to be resolved when Sara started (I am guessing they were short staffed before so again, management problem). Despite the many challenges we faced, I would still recommend this place as it really ended up being a fabulous wedding venue. I do owe it to Kim and Sara for making the day happen without hitch! I do hope by leaving this review, they clean up their act some, because I truly did love having our wedding here and think Sara and Kim both were great.

We were married on the Sky Deck with a reception at Loft 310. It was a great overall experience. The Sky Deck was absolutely stunning - perfect weather and the star tent with white chairs looked lovely. You don’t need much extra decor because it's so simple and elegant. There was a small issue with the microphone setup, so I would make sure you test that very well during the rehearsal.

The Loft 310 was perfect for a reception of 100 guests - very roomy to accommodate a dance floor, cake table, guest book, etc. We even fit a putting green in the back corner. The service staff was impeccable - always refilling glasses, clearing plates, very polite and helpful. The catering manager was wonderful. The food was overall very good. People especially raved about our appetizers.

While there were a few tense moments during the planning when they switched their contract system, our coordinators did iron out all the kinks and were pleasant to deal with. I don't think any bride makes it through a year of planning without a few stressful situations :) Kimberly and Sara are very sweet and accommodating to any ideas you might have. It seems like the possibilities are endless with the additional amenities they have recently added (rooms to get ready, a bridal suite).

We did use the house DJ and it was the only area where we were not that impressed. After taking the time to fill out a bunch of paperwork, it seemed he either didn't get it or didn't study it, because he seemed rushed and unprepared, and the music selection was not to our taste as we outlined. But nothing tragic. The guests all enjoyed his selections and we were too busy mingling to be bothered.

Overall, I highly recommend doing your wedding on the Sky Deck and your reception at Loft 310. We also saw the Upper Loft and it was beautiful as well. I don't think there is anywhere in Kalamazoo that compares with the Sky Deck for a memorable wedding location.

Okay, cheesy I know but they were great. They helped me create the night of my life. Any issues that may have arisen I was unaware of at the time. They were professional and so accommodating. I would definatly reccommend them again! Great job ladies!

We had a wonderful experience for our daughter's wedding at Loft 310 on August 10, 2012. Nearly everything was perfect and ran smoothly. The facility, food music (your DJ), wait staff, and the overall atmosphere was wonderful. There were a few times a couple of days before the wedding we had difficulty contacting the wedding coordinator, but in all, things worked out beautifully. In addition, parking was a bit tricky and I suggest finding a lot nearby the facility. Many of our guests parked at the city lot across the street and found the gate user unfriendly. To wrap things up, yes, I would recommend this vendor without any second thoughts.

We are SO pleased with how our wedding turned out at District Square and Loft 310. Who knew an outdoor concert space could be turned in to such a beautiful ceremony space and an open air loft could become so intimate. Liz and her team were remarkable, our entire day went off without a hitch. If there were any issues at all she made sure we were not aware of them. Ryan and I had an absolutely incredible day and we know we have the wonderful people at the Entertainment District to thank for that!

Our wedding turned out phenomenal and the majority of our guest said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. I attribute a great deal of that to Traver, the Loft 310 staff and the event space itself for proving to be all that was promised and more! The only reason I did not award a 5/5 is that meal portion sizes were a bit on the small side. Taste wise, the food was delectable and presented perfectly, I just wish there had been more of it. Overall, it was an amazing experience and if I had it to do all over, I would definitely chose Traver and Loft 310 to plan and execute my dream wedding! Because they did it so well the first time! Thanks again Traver and Loft 310!
