The catering was delicious! We did have problems with not enough seating but that was taken care of the day of. No one announced that there was cake and it was not passed out to anyone. The dj barely played any of the songs we had requested.

The ceremony seating was a little tighter than expected outside by the gazebo, so some people had to stand. The highlight of the day was our Officiant, Earl. He was an absolute joy and made our vow exchange that much more special. We chose to have a Sunday wedding because the rates were much more affordable. The down side-not being able to set up the night before due to a wedding on Sat., we did not have the option for a rehearsal, except for 30 min before the ceremony. It stressed everyone out a little but was doable. The food was absolutely incredible. Buffet style, top sirloin, ham, chicken, a few types of delicious potatoes, salad, rolls, and a veggie medley. The venue was very nice about letting us do what we wanted with the room and our videographers had free reign. Shoring up venue details to get a better idea of how the day would go was a bit unorganized. We attempted to go there a few weeks before to get a better idea of everything and we had scheduled an appt but they had also scheduled 3 or more appts at the same time so we didn't get the one on one attention we had hoped for, and both of the people we talked to basically told us the owner would have to discuss those things with us (which we thought was going to happen at that meeting, but didn't end up happening until 5 days before the wedding.) Finalizing everything 5 days before is a bit nerve wracking but understandable because you need to give a final head count for food and you want to be close to the day to do so. I wish they had let us give them a guarantee of how many guests we would pay for but set up for more. Instead, our count was our count and we had to pay it even though less showed. We figured we lost about $400 total in per person plate/drink cost for those who did not show. Overall it was a gorgeous venue and perfect for our special day. The Loft and Chapel is a great place to get married.

The Loft and Chapel was the best for me! It was a one stop shop without the hassle of calling a million places to find the "right" place. They offer almost every service you could want for a wedding if you choose to go with everything they offer. The Loft was willing to work with what every your style is, what colors you are using, food preferences, and wedding schedule. I was happy to work with the Loft for all of my wedding needs.

If I had to do it all again, I would choose The Loft and Chapel all over again. They have been in the wedding business for years and years and therefore have lots of experience and connections for cake, dj, floral, etc. They know exactly what they're doing and are a great pleasure to work with. The food was fantastic *absolutely delicious*, the hall looked great, DJ was awesome, and Jeff was fun to work with as our photographer. What a great experience!!!

I would recommend this venue to any couple who has a lower budget, and demands great service. It felt like 1-step-shopping, basically. They offer a lot of services that make for a great wedding. They were nice, and they really took the edge of planning off for me and husband.

Never got to taste the food or cake before the day of the wedding, luckly everything tasted amazing. Didn't get to chose what flavors we wanted the cake to be or even see what the cake would look like until the day of. I kept calling asking to get information about tables and other details needed for the day of and they kept saying they would not know until the Monday before our wedding. I understand that they do this for a living but not having information until 6 days before the wedding caused stress I believe didn't really need to be there. They also wrote the wrong information down on our contract, and said we changed the information. Grateful that everything did turn out the day of.

I had the my ceremony here. They were very helpful in turning one of the reception rooms into a chapel. I was able to fit all of my guest in the room. Very good at calling back and answering questions.

I am an x employee at the loft and chapel for 13 years I've been a loyal and out standing one at that. At least for them anyways and I would like to share my comments with you the many who have been lied to miss lead ripped off and even promised thing you didn't get. First they don't have 3 halls they have 2 and a chapel that will hold a hundred but more than that you are crammed in a unbelievable situation. Your beer is hardly ever a full barrel, they like to use partial that are left over from the night before if you are lucky but you could get one that's been there for months. The reviews you read on hear are probably written by employees I know cause I was one of them I am ashamed to say.their food is not always fresh you may get some left overs from the day before I know cause I cooked your food from October 4. 2001 to March 20th 2013. I've dealt with many unsatisfied brides and grooms because Jeff promised this and that. And wasn't even there when he should of been. So sorry I had my daughter's wedding there. Should of had it at the brew house and just sucked up the 1500 $ deposit. I worked with some great people hope and Kathie especially there facilities are not what you will aspect. On some of the reviews I've seen on here and Google Yahoo and a few more are old and out of date for instance have you seen the one's with thank you Jeff and Sandra well that's me and I have not been there for 2 years now. Funny how they continue using my name to help with their reviews. There are some things that are good with the facility but ownership and customer service is not one of them. I would also like to add that in spite of my opinion about the loft and chapel at cedar ridge I have enjoyed my 13 years there I meet some extrodinarry people. I would recommend that if you are planning any event that you look elsewhere cause once the money is in their hands they don't give a f#$& about your day.
