    We had our wedding The Loading Dock in May 2017. Our wedding was a dream come true and we could not have been happier with our venue choice. While at first we found ourselves intimidated by the “blank canvas” that the space presents, the team at the venue was incredibly accommodating, not only to us and our families, but to our vendors, many of whom they recommended. The space allows for almost anything in terms of décor and we ended up having a “secret garden” theme with string lights and greenery. Our wedding was completely unique and unlike any other wedding we had attended in the past. The food options were awesome and not only looked beautiful but tasted amazing. We were told by so many of our guests how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. Finally, the team was so attentive, whether it was allowing us to drop decorations off early, to making sure we always had a drink or a special platter of the food - they exceeded our expectations!

    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!!!!!!!!
