    My wedding day was phenomenal!

    I don’t know where to start! The day was perfect! I booked a Saturday 11am wedding/reception with Lesner Inn and it was as elegant as I had dreamed and ran as smoothly as one can imagine. The lesner inn team, including Alexis and Emily specifically, were so helpful and answered promptly to any question my fiancé and I had. I highly recommend this space!

    Exceptional All Around!

    Lesner Inn isn't just a stunning venue; their expert team members were the brains behind an experience that our guests have yet to stop talking about. They went above and beyond to make sure that our party of 240 were accommodated and treated like VIP.

    Alexis and Emily were quick to answer all of our questions from the beginning of our planning stages, all the way up to our big day. Not only did they communicate well, but they always communicated with an energy and excitement that was contagious and certainly helped to alleviate the stress or anxiety around planning a wedding.

    When I say that Alexis knows how to host a memorable party, I mean it! Her suggestions and ideas, be it the small details or immediate solutions, helped to create an event that far exceeded both of our families’ expectations. 

    As if the panoramic views of the Lynnhaven Inlet were not beautiful enough, Lesner Inn recently renovated their interior, and it looks fabulous. You will hardly need the extra decor in a place that looks like this on its own.

    Last but not least, the food was delicious! I was lucky enough to have had time to eat (almost) my entire plate that the staff kindly prepared for me and my husband. If you’re still looking for a Hampton Roads venue on the water with an exceptional team, look no further. 

    Alexis, Emily, and Lesner Inn team, we had a blast! We cannot thank you enough!
