Business Name: The Loft at Studio J
Tell us about your business:
The Loft at Studio J is beautiful and historic downtown Stillwater - right on Main Street. It is the upper level of Studio J and Judd Sather Photography and is one of the hottest new venues in Minnesota hosting over 75 weddings in its first year of operation. The Loft has enough space for up to 330, but most weddings are in the 150-200 guest range.
What makes you different?:
Stillwater is an amazing and romantic place and we are the only venue that has been recently renovated. The Loft has a "rustic / chic" vibe that appeals to both men and women and is similar to the trendy barn weddings but has heat and air conditioning! Many of the finish materials were re-used from the original flooring and subfloor, and we even "buried the hatchet" in the bar epoxy as we found a hatchet from 1895 behind a wall we tore down. The Loft also has three rooms that are pretty much as they were back in the 1920's when it was an apartment or brothel before that. We also have a BYOB license which has been very popular!
Can you tell us about your packages and price point?:
Room rental is all-inclusive (tables, chairs, A/V, setup/takedown) starts around $6500 depending on time of year and Fri/Sat/Sunday. We are currently offering a special of $1000 off room rental for any events booked during January 2015. We have a preferred vendor list but are open to outside caterers and photographers. Ask about specials when using The Simply Elegant Group!
What is one of your favorite memories from a wedding?:
Our staff constantly gets rave reviews from guests and clients of how great the venue and staff are. We have all brides and grooms sign a time capsule and hang a signed program from their wedding to the wall to add a personal touch to the place.
