    Worth your time!!

    Believe me when I say- BOOK THIS VENUE. Not only is the actual building stunning, but the location is perfect, and the staff is phenomenal. The Loft truly made our wedding day what it was. We received so many comments on how beautiful of a venue it was, and so many of our guests were ecstatic about the location. Being right in downtown Stillwater gave us and our guests access to so many different things (as well as provided the perfect location for beautiful pictures). Working with Emily was easy and stress-free; she was very prompt with communication and flexible with our requests. Such a kind person! Our bartender was also wonderful- quick, polite, and patient. The Loft is fairly priced, beautiful, and overall just worth your time; they go above and beyond to make sure your day is special. You will not regret checking them out!

As wedding planners/coordinators, we love working at The Studio at Loft J. This is a beautiful venue located in the heart of downtown Stillwater. We recently coordinated a wedding there and enjoyed working with the onsite staff. They were very helpful and friendly. We are looking forward to working at The Loft at Studio J and their sister company, JX Venue, more in 2018 and beyond.
