"Where to begin!?! Our wedding was an absolute dream! The Lightner is the most beautiful venue with so much character and elegance. It was the perfect venue for our large guest count. The staff really takes advantage of all of the space. Brandy and her team made our day so easy, allowing us to truly enjoy our special day. My husband and I can not recommend the Lightner enough. Our wedding was such a beautiful day and we will forever remember how special it was at the Lightner!"
"Best. Night. Ever!! From the moment you walk in everything feels elegant, timeless, and grand. Not sure how you could ever go wrong with that, but to top it off, the staff is so courteous, professional, and helpful. They know everything there is to know about planning a wedding and are happy to help you every step of the way."
"We were able to trust and rely on the Lightner Museum team without hesitation. As for the venue itself, it was more than a dream come true...We couldn’t have asked for anything more, choosing the Lightner was the best choice we could’ve made for our wedding day."
"We absolutely LOVED having our reception here. We had dinner on the second floor and had the dancing/party on the first floor, which made for such great photos. Our guests really enjoyed being able to see the dancing down below from the upstairs. No other venue compares to its uniqueness and beauty - it was like a fairytale wedding!! Truly!! The staff made sure everything went seamlessly and they were all so pleasant and kind to work with.”
"I really couldn’t have chosen a better venue! It was an absolutely beautiful place to have a wedding and everyone who works there was the absolute best ever! They were the most professional, friendly and attentive people I have ever met. It was a dream come true and I couldn’t have imagined it any other way. The options are endless at the Lightner Museum and the feedback I received from guests on how it was the best wedding they ever went to shows how amazing this place is! We wish we could go back to this wonderful day but having the wedding here gave us the best moments that will last forever."
"The venue was breathtaking and the staff was amazing. Literally everyone that worked there was extremely friendly, helpful, attentive, professional, and courteous. This was a destination wedding as I live in Chicago, IL and literally every time I called I was able to speak to someone with very little wait time if not none at all. That was extremely important as I was hundreds of miles away. Throughout all my phone calls they were very patient and more than willing to answer all if my questions and even did a Facetime walk through with me of the venue! I couldn’t have asked for a better team! People still haven’t stopped talking about my wedding months later. Thank you guys for a fairytale come true!”
