    A Beautiful Sunday

    Getting married in the middle of Covid-19 wasn't an easy feat. Kimberly understood that and made sure that my wife's needs were met. Nicole and the staff at The Lesner Inn were so accomodating and kind. We had no issues at all. The guests loved the food and the ambiance.

    Everything was PERFECT!

    Lesner Inn was the perfect venue for our wedding-ceremony and reception! Everything was perfect from the food to the safety during the COVID pandemic. The process of planning was nothing short of stressful but Lindsey, Noelle, and Alexis we so helpful and calming during that whole period. They were also VERY accommodating to my families small requests with food or drinks. The day of was perfect! We even had dolphins in the water but that was just a nice perk! The food was amazing, we can’t say that enough!! The servers, bartenders, and the rest of the staff were so nice and helpful! This is the place you want to get married or just have a party! You won’t be disappointed!

    Thank you so much for this kind review. We have witnessed the difficulty in planning any type of event during COVID19 - and the stress that it's added to all of our clients... but we're so happy to hear that we were able to alleviate some of that stress for you. Thank you for trusting us with your big day! We're so happy your dream day came to life, and that we were able to be a part of it (and so happy the dolphins made an appearance for it too!). We wish you the best as you enter this next chapter of your life as Mrs. Ehlert!
