My wife and I had a wonderful experience at LMNS! In our initial quest for a wedding venue, we considered many options, but we were sold after meeting the venue coordinator, Brittany. Brittany went above and beyond to ensure we had nothing short of a perfect day. She always kept an open line of communication and gave prompt responses to all questions. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her job. There was never a point when Brittany or the LMNS staff were unpleasant or unhelpful. They treated our day as if it were their own, and our guests are still talking about how beautiful, well-organized, and enjoyable our wedding was at this venue even weeks later. We had both our ceremony and reception at the venue, and the transition between the two was seamless. Throughout the evening, LMNS staff consistently checked on my wife an I and made sure there was nothing we needed. All stress was lifted from us, and we were truly able to enjoy the best day of our lives with no issues. I would recommend LMNS to anyone, any day.

I wanted a venue that could accommodate a ceremony and reception in the same place and also had hotels and such nearby. Levine Museum of the New South checked all of my boxes. Brittany is sweet and wonderful to work with. The venue can be decorated super fancy.

The venue fee is affordable for an uptown location and the list of approved caterers includes most of the fullservice options. We went with QC Catering and everything was wonderful.
