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

I knew as soon as I walked in that I wanted to have my wedding at Dock 580. We had our ceremony and reception at The Venue. It was perfect. Working with Jessica and Leanne made the day so much less stressful, as I knew they would do a great job. They were both very professional, accommodating, organized and friendly. And everyone raved about the food. It was the perfect location. I would recommend this venue to any brideSent on 09/07/2018

If you're getting married your must go to Dock580. They took care of everything! For years I've heard of the horrors of planning a wedding and how stressful it is on the bride and groom, but the crew at Dock580 made it so easy. All we had to do was show up for the tastings and have a couple of meetings with our coordinator and we were done. They knew how to handle all the deliveries from all the other vendors, all catering is done in-house, and all the staff is in house as well. This made it so easy for us during the planning process.Sent on 09/10/2017
Our wedding coordinator, Leanne, made sure we had everything we needed and that we had a fun and relaxed wedding day.
Thank you to everyone at Dock580, especially Leanne, for making our wedding day so fantastic!
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.
