Amazing venue!

We had an absolute amazing reception at the waterview loft. From the staff, venue, food, everything about the evening was perfect. We received so many compliments on the flow of the event. Lizzie was such a pleasure to work with. She worked with me tirelessly to make the day perfect for us. I would highly recommend the waterview loft for your next event!

The absolute BEST experience possible

My husband and I got married at Waterview Loft on 12/31/22. Leading up to our wedding, Lizzie did a great job assisting us with everything and preparing us for our wedding. She responded to emails promptly and professionally. Her and the Continental Team did an excellent job setting up our food tasting, accommodating our special drink requests, and more. They did a fantastic job! However, what really made our experience at WVL beyond our imagination was the day of. The staff was FANTASTIC. I truly cannot express our gratitude enough for how incredible everyone was - Kenny and Mackenzie went above and beyond to ensure that everything was absolutely perfect. We did not have to do a single thing the entire night! Mckenzie made sure that we both had everything we needed the entire night, including delivering us our drinks of choice to us during cocktail hour, our table, and even to the dance floor. All of our guests went on and on about how gorgeous the venue was, how wonderful the staff was, and how delicious the food was. Every single guest told us it was the BEST wedding food they have ever had and how insanely large the portions were. WVL and the entire staff truly made our wedding night the best night of our lives. We could not be more thankful for everything that they did to ensure everything was absolutely perfect! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

You wont regret it!

I don't know where to even start Lizzie was great from start to finish. Follow ups and what to expect email were send often and questions were answered promptly. The entire staff is top notch my wife and I didn't have a empty drink all night before it was being replaced. The service our guests was on par with that as well QUICK bartenders and short lines all night. The vendors they work with are top notch and communicate what to expect and when to come constantly. The skyline of Detroit and Windsor will blow you and your guest away especially at night. Ill be honest I wasn't thrilled at the price of this place when she picked it. But the fact everything was included besides photographer made planning a breeze so I would definitely take that into account. Overall Waterview loft made our special day something we will honestly never forget. It was the best night our lives. It was worth every penny.
