A special liability event rider policy is required for your event day or weekend. The amount is 1 million. This protects you, your family and further more protects our investment. A small price to pay to ensure for safety and peace of mind. Where do I get this insurance? Your homeowner company may offer services, wedsafe.com, eventhelper.com, wedensure.com and several other reliable enterprises online offer services well beyond liability you can insure all your vendors as well.
In addition to insurance, we ask for a $500 deposit at your 2 week walk thru or day of event in the form of a check. This is for broken, misplaced, taken, additional clean up or damage that may possibly occur during your event. This check is either shredded after 2 weeks or a email will be sent on items that may been accidently taken or broken during your course of event. A charge will occur if not settled or returned within 2 weeks of event.
Set up & Clean up
We help by doing a 2 week prior to event walk thru with you. That helps us know how many tables and chairs you will need out. Arbor and your bar areas for upstairs and down. We try to set it where you think you might like it so when you arrive you and your team only have to worry about the special decor pieces you are adding. This is a minimal set up up base amenities. If you choose our catering crew and staff we are happy to place your added dinner ware at the tables prior to dinner creating the finishing touches to your table scape.
When it comes to clean up we ask that all items that were used out of the something borrowed room be put back where found. If in the case your candle or any debri has adhered to the decor please take the time to clean it properly before returning it. We ask you to clean up all trash, paper, plastic, and floral greens removed from ceremony and receptions area and placed in trash. If you do add ons such as linens and dishes we ask that your staff remove all dishes from tables and place back in totes provided. We rinse and clean all add on dishware. Linens rented from us can be left on tables. Then you grab your personal items and we do the rest. Here at The Loft we try to help ease the stress as much as possibly making your day special and not to worry about the details no one likes to handle....like the trash. We deal with all trash you leave it on our back loading dock with the heavy duty bags we provide and we take it from there. Please leave our venue the way you found it upon arrival.

We LOVE what we do and I think once you meet us you will see that. The Loft is a large venue over 100 years old, tons of character, tons of history and a labor of love. I have been in the wedding industry 20+ years, starting in retail wedding gowns and more. Then moved to event rentals, then owning and operating 2 venues.
