The Factory 12 Event Loft is recently under new management. I booked my wedding (both ceremony and reception) with the old owners, and they were difficult to contact and work with, but the venue was exactly what I wanted and was a decent price so I went with it. I had a bit of a scare when the new management took over, but they made the transition painless and were much easier to work with. Caleb is professional and was willing to answer all the questions I threw his way, and is easy to reach.
Unfortunately we had a couple instances of miscommunication that I'm hoping were caused by the ownership change and the proximity of our wedding to Christmas; 1)I was not informed that Caleb would not be at our wedding, but instead their catering manager Brittany would be my contact for the day. Brittany was amazing though and bent over backwards to make sure every detail got taken care of. 2)When we showed up for setup the napkins were the wrong color, but Brittany sent an employee to Indianapolis to pick up the right color and got the situation remedied with no hassle. 3) The bar had not been told our order for which wines and beers to serve, so some of our chosen beers weren't offered. But the bartenders were friendly and Brittany made sure to bring my groom and I drinks all night when she saw ours were empty, she certainly made us feel cared for.
On the whole, I would recommend the venue. The food was amazing and affordable, the staff was friendly and professional, the place has an industrial beauty to it that requires few decorations making setup easy and inexpensive. But I would say to explicitly confirm all your choices with the team before the day of your event to prevent miscommunication; I have no doubt their performance will improve as they get used to the space and the requirements of a wedding.

We hosted our ceremony and wedding at Factory 12 Event Loft. I love the location in downtown Columbus. It is convenient to hotels and restaurants. The venue is large enough to give your guests room to spread out and enjoy the evening. We loved the smaller room for the ceremony to make it more intimate and the larger room for the reception. The extra space allowed our guests to mingle and it allowed for photo ops and dessert bar! We enjoyed working with Richie. He was flexible and helped us make our day extra special!
