My husband and I held our wedding reception here on 6/1. When doing our research on venues, we knew the second we walked into this space, that this is where our reception needed to be. It is industrial, super close to the pulse of downtown San Diego, and has all the possibility in the world in allowing you to customize your event exactly the way you imagined.
From the moment we decided to move forward, Zack (point of contact) was ready and available to answer all of our logistical questions as well as offer great advice on vendors and caterers that have done work in the space before. The space was affordable and it is yours for 24 hours, which helps with setting up and tearing down before and after your event. A parking structure is also located directly across the street and on our particular event, there was a Padre game, which forced us to complete with the parking a little bit but you can pre-purchase parking passes ahead of time.
We had INCREDIBLE wedding planners (Beau & Arrow) who helped us envision the look and feel of the event and manipulated the space to reflect that. Luce Loft is essentially a blank slate that allows you to do whatever you want. We wanted ours to be a complete juxtaposition between masculine (industrial look and feel of the Luce Loft) while having soft and feminine touches (white draping with uplighting, beautiful white couches, and chairs). Catering can be tough but we opted for a food truck which is how a lot of events work at Luce Loft. We hired Curiosity Catering and it was a hit! The options were tray passed in tandem with offerings outside of the truck as well (if people wanted more of something). People couldn't compliment them or the food enough!
The whole experience with Luce Loft, from start to finish, was incredibly unique - definitely NOT a traditional wedding reception. That was, however, EXACTLY what we were looking for in our wedding and our reception. Best of luck!

Big open Loft for the perfect small or medium size wedding we loved the location right in downtown SD. The owner and management was very easy to work with. They have a list of vendors they have worked with before to jump start our planning. The best part is the space is completely open so we where free to create our own look with the tables and chairs that we rented. The inside is so unique itself we really didn't have to do much decorating which helped with our budget.

I'm in love with Luce Loft! I'm convinced that we couldn't have found a more magical place for our wedding reception. You have the freedom to create whatever vision you have on any kind of budget. I didn't think it was possible to do a wedding under 10k, but Zack and Alie made it possible for us. They were extremely easygoing, accommodating, responsive, and genuinely nice people. I don't have enough good things to say about this space. I wish I could relive every moment.
