About

On WeddingWire since 2013

The Waterview Loft at Port Detroit is a modern wedding venue located in Detroit, Michigan. This venue is not only near the GM RenCen, but it is also situated right in the center of Downtown Detroit. This city destination provides couples with a sleek and sophisticated backdrop to host their ceremony and reception. Plus, due to its location next to an international waterway, you will have views of both the skyscrapers dotting the skyline as well as waterfront views from many of the spaces.

Facilities and Capacity
Inside the Waterfront Loft at Port Detroit, you can choose from two main ceremony site options. The first is the Waterview Loft. This stylish space is filled with windows that allow natural light to pour in, offering views of the Detroit River. The second indoor option is the Conservatory. This space features high ceilings and a contemporary style that blends in perfectly with the surroundings. Overall, there is enough space inside for up to 400 of your loved ones to join you on your big day. In addition to ceremony spaces, there are also spaces set aside specifically for hosting your reception. Each room boasts elegant interiors, ambient lighting, and modern, tasteful accents. At this premium waterfront event venue, couples and guests can gather in spaces such as the chef-attended action station or the conservatory-turned-lounge. Wedding parties can prepare and beautify in plush get-ready rooms on-site before the official celebrations begin.

Best Day Ever

Our wedding at Waterview Lofts was an absolute dream. It was everything I could ask for and more. Working with the Event Coordinator, Lizzie, allowed me to fully visualize the whole wedding day. During the big day Kata, Alex, and Chloe were on site to help me with any questions and make my dream come to life. The food was absolutely amazing and people kept raving about it after our wedding. Our DJ never missed a beat and had us dancing all night long. I couldn’t ask for a better day in my life. Thank you, Waterview!

An Absolutely Perfect Day

We had our wedding at Waterview Loft in the fall of 2023. Everything about working with Waterview was amazing, their attention to detail is unmatched. The all inclusive vendor package made wedding planning so much easier than seeking out our own vendors and they did a lot of the time consuming work for us. Our even coordinator, Lizzie, was so easy to work with and helped us through every step of the planning process with literally everything. Our experience the day of our wedding far exceeded our expectations, we truly felt like royalty and were catered to by the staff the entire evening, especially by Adel our day of coordinator. They had our special drinks and food preferences at the ready all night! The food for our guests was amazing, from the hors d'oeuvres all the way to the late night snack. The location of the venue was all our guests could talk about for weeks, they loved the water front view of the Detroit River and easy accessibility to the city and hotels. I could not say enough good things about our experience here, if you want to host a wedding that offers the full package, look no further than Waterview Loft.

Would marry my wife at Waterview Loft every weekend if I could

Our ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. Everything was perfectly in place and ran smoothly. My wife and I were never without a drink in our hand if we wanted it, the food was incredible, all the staff was amazing and absolutely on top of everything. I could really go on; I can't say enough good things about the team at Waterview Loft. They made planning so easy and clear. 10/10, would recommend, they are absolute rock stars at what they do.
