Located near the corner of Front and Princess. 27 North Front Street Suite #200 Wilmington, NC 28401 910.297.6526 (next to Bourbon Street Restaurant and the Gourmet Market...we are on the second floor)
Located in the heart of Downtown Wilmington, our 2,000 sq. ft. event venue is the perfect space for many different kinds of parties. The space can transform in different ways to either accommodate a small wedding ceremony with limited seating, a seated rehearsal dinner for 50 or less, or a cocktail party for 65 people with bistro tables and lounge area options. The space also lends itself well to corporate events, bridal & baby showers, and more. When used as a bridal suite, this luxurious space is meant for your bridal party to relax, enjoy and create memories with the girls you love most. Your team of stylists have everything they need to get you ready (we include salon quality chairs & trays for products and tools), while the space lends beautiful, natural lighting and backdrops for your photographer.
We've had private caterers rent the space for tasting events in the past year, which has added a unique option for the caterers themselves, that may not have their own space to host people, and a unique night out for our guests. This space started as an idea for Downtown Wilmington's first bridal suite, and has grown more than we could have expected. It's been exciting to see how the community has embraced it, and the ideas that have been brought forth to use the space for, from personal use to corporate use.
Although I own Baca Photography and shoot weddings regularly throughout the year, it is not a requirement for brides booking The Loft on Front to book my photography as well. The space was created to share with the entire community of wedding professionals and expand Downtown Wilmington's wedding scene. I love seeing all of the creative and talented photographers working here and am grateful for my fellow wedding photographers to recommend The Loft on Front. Having talented photographers shooting in here regularly has only expanded the way potential customers see the space.
We are an intimate and beautiful venue, perfect for celebrations of 50 or less seated or 65 cocktail style.
We include five 5 foot round tables, 5 cocktail tables, 50 silver chiavari chairs and lounge furniture. An additional China/glassware/linen package is also available. You can choose any caterer you like and bring in your own beer, wine and champagne.
Wedding season is here and since we do a number of different events, booking early is key to getting any venue you want with the time frame you're interested in. With over 2000 weddings in our area, April through November are very busy and our space is being booked more and more frequently. At this point, you can't book too early. However, it's always worth calling if you have an event coming up quickly that you need a venue for!
We are extremely thankful for all the support we have received over the last two years and are excited to see what the future brings.
The Loft on Front
We are also excited to offer the The Loft on Front as a bridal suite for brides and bridesmaids to get ready for the walk down the aisle. You can reserve the space for the day of the wedding to relax and sip champagne. We have created a beautiful space just for brides to have their hair and makeup done and the vintage charm of The Loft on Front is the perfect backdrop for photography on your special day. The suite includes a dedicated area for hair stylists and make up artists, large mirrors with styling chairs, stands, lounge area, flat screen TV and a kitchen area.
Bring in your own caterer and beer/wine for your event. We have tables and chairs to accommodate 50 guests (50 silver chiavari chairs and FIVE 5 foot round tables) for seated events and up to 65 people for cocktail and networking events.
