An absolute seamless dream

OUR FAVORITE DAY EVER. And it wouldn’t of been complete without the most STUNNING venue and AMAZING staff to help create a seamless wedding day. I can’t begin to thank Emily and everyone over at The Loft at Studio J for all their hard work they put in to creating the most memorable day for my husband and I. Our guests are still raving about our big day weeks later. From the gorgeous atmosphere to the photos guests could capture themselves at the photo booth that’s included. Our wedding day was an absolute dream. Trust me, book it.

The Best Venue!

We are SO glad we chose the Loft at Studio J for our wedding reception venue! The space itself is timeless - rustic, classic, intimate, and just drop dead gorgeous. It’s perfectly conducive to a buzzing dance floor while still reserving space and opportunity for intimate conversations throughout the night. The bar location flows perfect with the rest of the evening activities, and the built in Photo Booth provides a special way for guests to capture magic moments. Oh, and did I mention it’s located in the heart of Minnesota’s most gorgeous Main Street? Truly idyllic.

But without question the best part of choosing The Loft is getting to work with Emily! We added on to our package to have her services as our day-of coordinator and it may have been the best choice we made through our entire wedding planning. She was organized, professional, and so kind. By the time we reached our reception, we wanted her as a guest! 11/10, would recommend!

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.
