Great Space, Welcoming and Responsive
Disclaimer: We ended up not choosing Luce Loft (a little too small) or Luce on Kettner (a little too big) BUT we highly recommend reaching out to both spaces for a tour as our experience during viewing was very welcoming and great. They really helped us envision how our wedding would look and what they could help you on.Sent on 12/26/2020
Luce Loft would be great for an intimate wedding, and Luce on Kettner great for a big bash. Luce on Kettner is also brand new so facilities reflect that in terms of the dressing rooms, catering rooms, bathrooms, etc. Highly recommend!

This venue was amazing! Zack was responsive and communicative through the entire process! We could not have asked for a better venue to host our reception! The layout and space allows you to have ample room for many different configurations! We even had room for cornhole!Sent on 03/12/2021
