Our New Years Eve wedding was truly a dream! Loring Social is the perfect space to have an intimate wedding yet feel like there is enough space to move. We wanted the night to be festive for NYE but still be warm and romantic! Amanda was a gem to work with and everything turned out fabulous. The food was phenomenal, exactly like our private tasting. Everyone was professional and the flip went by so faSt! We had our ceremony in the reception room then moved to the Waverly room for cocktail hour and back into the other room for dinner and dancing. We had a live band, which worked great, floral and candles everywhere and an amazing cannon send off at midnight. If your looking for a warm and welcoming space this is it! D’amico is by far the best! One happy bride ❤️

Loring Social was ABSOLUTELY perfect!!! The space, planner, wait staff, and catering provided was impeccable and I could not have imagined it any better. The space is gorgeous- high industrial ceilings and pretty brick mixed with modern beautiful chandeliers and cool artwork in the transition/hallways area. We used the Waverly Room for cocktail hour- it had plenty of space for everyone and the large bar was great, the planner also suggested adding in another free standing bar at the other end of the room which was a great idea to make sure lines didn't form. We also used the bar in this room as the dessert bar later on so guests could take their dessert at will/pick what they wanted- it was perfect! The Chelsea room accommodated our 200 guests well and was stunning. We had a 10 piece band as well, and ended up only needing to remove two tables after dinner to clear room for the dance floor. The bar is RIGHT on the dance floor which all of our guests loved and commented on- you don't ever have to leave the party to get/refill your drink! It was one of my favorite things about the space. Another amazing part is the glass garage door. We kept it closed during during, speeches and for the first hour or so of dancing, but opened it up after that. They had sectioned off a small outdoor area outside the garage door as well so people could stand outside for a break if they wanted while still being in/apart of the party- people loved it! The planner for the space- Christie- is AWESOME. She is very nice and easy to work with, and very on top of her game. She helped us throughout the whole process to make sure both the space and catering was exactly what we wanted- and it turned out perfectly! The D'Amico catering was amazing. The passed appetizers, drinks, dinner and cake/other desserts were all fantastic- especially for wedding food! It was delicious!
Overall, it was beautiful and just what I wanted- and better than I imagined. I highly recommend it!
