Hire Them, and You Won't Regret It!
A special thanks to Kelsey Basar, Steve Rayo and Vince Piccinini for making our wedding a huge success! We couldn't have done it without you. If you are looking for a venue for a special event or wedding, look no further than Dock580! They did everything for us, from the planning to the vendor coordination and the alcohol. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Vince helped prepare our signature cocktails for the evening, Steve helped to coordinate our many special requests, and Kelsey was incredible from the moment she was assigned as our coordinator, all the way through the wedding.Sent on 11/13/2019

My husband and I had the most seamless planning and day of support with Juniper. From the menu, staff, and coordinators we felt supported through the whole process. Not to mention the jaw dropping venue which led to many new profile pictures for our guests!Sent on 09/19/2019

The Loft Was Everything We Could Have Wanted!
We cannot express enough how happy we are that we chose The Loft at Dock 580 for our wedding ceremony and reception. Our coordinator, Leanne, was with us every step of the way answering questions and doing everything she could to accommodate any requests we had...not to mention she had EVERYTHING in order and flowing well from start to finish our Wedding day. Our bartenders and staff were THE best and we got endless compliments on them. Additionally, the food was AWESOME...we liked what we tried at the tasting but added and changed some things along the way and were not disappointed. Our guests have commented repeatedly on how good the food was as well. Finally, the venue itself was perfection. We picked The Loft because we felt it didn't need alot of extra decoration and attention to look great and we were SOOOO right. We went with minimal flowers, our own wood backdrop, some decorations on entry way and dessert tables and aisle decorations that then shifted to the tables as centerpieces for dinner. We had an incredible experience with The Loft!Sent on 06/18/2019
Dock 580 is always a pleasure to work with! I would say it is the venue I deliver to most often, and I have never had a negative experience. The set up is always gorgeous! I love pictures of my cakes that have the brick back drop, or the beautiful lights in the stairway of the Loft.
I'm currently in the Cincinnati/ Dayton Market but I was born and raised in Columbus. I'd always drive along and look at how fun the Smith Bros warehouse looked... And now I had the honor of coming back to Columbus to shoot a wedding over Labor Day weekend this year. W.O.W. Dock 580 is such a wonderful spot. It's simple but still extraordinary. The coordinator was great as well, very kind to myself and her interactions with the Bride and Groom were professional but still personal. I'd definitely love to work more events with Dock 580.
