    What can I say? THANK YOU!!! The entire team at The Loading Dock is incredibly amazing. My family and I worked with Frank and he was incredibly understanding, helpful and patient from day one. Our wedding was a dream come true and it would not have been possible without the help of everyone who works at the LD. One of our guests compared Abigail Kirsch's food to La Bernardin, a number one restaurant in NYC. I wish I had time to eat more, but from what I understand the food was absolutely incredible. The drinks were delicious. The service- impeccable!!!!!! The venue is stunning and the florists, lighting team and decorators had so much fun working with the space and created a fall wonderland. My wedding was more perfect than I ever could have imagined. I am so happy we decided to get married at the LD!!!! Thank you to the entire team for making our wedding magical!!!!!!!!
