CONTACT OUR TEAM FOR MORE DETAILS AND TO CHECK AVAILABILITY!

ll of the staff at the Lightner are beyond amazing. We planned our wedding from 3000 miles away in California. [The Lightner team] made sure to provide us with more than enough information to help us feel comfortable planning things from so far away. We were able to trust and rely on them without hesitation.

As for the venue itself, it was more than a dream come true. We loved utilizing the entire space, allowing our guests to flow through each floor to take in the beauty of the building. All of our guests were in awe of the space. The Lightner allows for so many great photo opportunities, providing vibes from vintage to whimsical, to magical. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Choosing the Lightner was the best choice we could’ve made for our wedding day.
