My husband and I got officially married on Nov 15th 2013, but where going to have our wedding celebration on June 29th 2014. Unfortunately, with the sudden and tragic passing of my Father on May 15th, 2014 the wedding had to be moved to the following year. In the midst of all the funeral chaos, I had to contact the wedding vendors and beg them to give us credit for the amount we had already paid for the following year and a new date yet to be determined. All the vendors agreed, they where all wonderful except The Dumbo Loft. When I called and told Chris about what had happened, he said unless he can rebook the space, we can't get our money back. We did not want our money back, we wanted the date to be moved to the following year. To any date in June they might have available...but he said no. Then, my husband and I tried to reason with Chris, this is a business after all, and asked him if he could at least move the deposit or at least part of the deposit over to next year so we did not have to look for another venue and I can grieve my Father's death in peace....but he still said NO! I even emailed him a copy of the death certificate so Chris would not think that we are trying to pull a fast one.....but he STILL SAID NO! Thankfully, we found a clause in the contract that said that a $1,000 was due back to us for any rentals we might have paid if we cancel so we where able to get that back, but we are officially out $3,000. BUT! That is ok because we have a new place that we love, for the month of June, and karma is a, well, you know....

The DUMBO Loft was exactly what we were looking for -- a well-located, interesting but essentially blank slate kind of space for our wedding. Some helpful basics were included -- a PA and audio mixer and mic for the DJ, a bar (unstocked), and some decorative lighting. We had to provide everything else. I highly recommend DUMBO Loft if you are experienced in event planning or are hiring a wedding planner who knows where to rent tables, chairs, linens, dishes etc. There were a lot of little questions I had to ask Chris the manager (will there be trash cans? yes. trash bags? no.) and he was always quick to respond and very flexible with our needs. Thanks to the help of my friends and my other vendors, we put together a really beautiful party. And the out of town guests love the charm of DUMBO. There's also a nice little "park" in front of the building at the 3-way intersection of Water, Pearl and Anchorage streets.

The only problem we ran into with the space was a portable oven we rented for the catering didn't fit through the door. If you are bringing in any large-scale gear, be sure to consider this first!

We loved using the Dumbo Loft! Chris was very helpful, flexible, and everyone commented on how beautiful the space was! You can't beat the neighborhood, the exposed bricks, the tall ceilings...everything was great. Great price too! I think the price has increased since I booked, but we got a great deal. Fridays and Sundays are cheaper, if I remember correctly.

The DUMBO loft is basically an open canvas. You can do whatever you want to do with it. This is the main reason we chose this venue. We initially inquired DAC but got to know that they do not have AC so we quickly turned around to the DUMBO loft. I especially loved the exposed brick walls and the huge windows that created the rustic appearance. A beautiful venue for intimate weddings. Picture perfect venue!

As born and bred Brooklynites, both my fiance and I wished to tie the knot in our favorite borough. The DUMBO Loft fit the bill...not only is it in Brooklyn but it sits directly under the Manhattan Bridge and overlooks the city skyline...the best of both worlds for us! In addition, it is not your run-of-the-mill reception hall. Rather, it is a unique, blank canvas which can be designed to suit any decor. It provided the perfect backdrop for my Valentine's Old Hollywood themed wedding!
