Ryan is amazing!
Ryan did everything in her power to help our day be as special as possible! Covid has made wedding season hard for everyone, but she helped me and my new husband have a lovely micro wedding. It wasn’t perfect, our ceremony music did not go as planned, but that is such a minor detail as Ryan or her assistant usually handles that and Ryan was marrying us, and her assistant was dealing with sick children. She got a volunteer to come in and help with the music, and even though that did not go perfectly, everything else went great! So grateful for Ryan and everything she did! Plus the space is incredibly beautiful. While we are sad we could not have the big wedding we wanted, we were happy to still have a beautiful special day with the people we loved most around us, and Ryan made sure it ran smoothly. She works so hard. Wonderful place to get married at. If we ever have a vow renewal, I would very much like to have it at the Lawton Community Center! Photos by Bailee B.

Amazing Venue and Coordinator!!
Our wedding was August 15th, 2020, and we have been so incredibly thankful for everything the Lawton Community Center has done! Seriously, the horror stories surrounding the pandemic should make everyone nervous about booking any venue but the LCC is very flexible given the situation and actually cares and wants you to have a great day. Obviously our wedding was impacted by COVID and we had to make sacrifices, but the communication from the venue coordinator Ryan was so awesome And flexible. She really went through and laid all of our options out on the table, was very honest about what she could and couldn’t do, and ultimately made the best out of our situation while sticking to the rules and regulations set by the governor and county. We couldn’t be more thankful for picking a venue that cares! You won’t be stuck with a COVID horror story if you choose this venue.Sent on 08/25/2020

Our wedding was an absolute dream come true thanks to The Lawton Community Center venue and staff. Ryan Caldwell is an amazing person who is so passionate about her job and cares so deeply for her clients. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted it to be and more. We would not have wanted to be booked with anyone else when Covid-19 decided to show up. Ryan, again, went above and beyond to do everything she could to make our day magical while still following the CDC guidelines. The LCC took the proper precautions to be sure all of the staff and guests were safe. Masks and hand sanitizer were available to guests and common areas were thoroughly cleaned throughout the evening. We are so thankful to Ryan and the rest of the LCC for making our dream wedding come true, despite the pandemic that tried to ruin everything. We couldn't recommend this venue enough.Sent on 07/16/2020

A beautiful facility with a staff that is on the ball. Every wedding i have played here has been exceptional.
I can never say enough about the Lawton Heritage Community Center! The building is gorgeous and has a great history, complete with a museum that I never tire of viewing. Numerous options available for your ceremony and/or reception set up. Ryan Kay and her team are the most enthusiastic professionals around. She anticipates a client's needs like no one I know. It is always a pleasure to work there, and my couples have always been extremely pleased with the venue choice.
Great place for your wedding or special event. They get high marks from Floral Creations by Sharon
