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.

Loved this Venue!
My husband and I chose the Levine Museum of the New South for our wedding venue and are so happy we did! It's such a unique place to have an event, and all of our guests seemed to enjoy it!
We rented the lobby & atrium, which proved to be perfect for our wedding, and we loved that we and the guests had access to the permanent exhibit downstairs. The bridesmaids, moms, & I enjoyed using the space upstairs to get ready. The value was also incredible for a venue in uptown.
Most importantly, though - we were so glad to work with Brittany. She was incredibly helpful, and accommodating, and even offered her assistance when we became overwhelmed with selecting a caterer.
For anyone considering planning an event or wedding at the Levine Museum, I definitely recommend doing it - you won't regret it!

No stress; just perfect
Brittany made the process as smooth as can be. The caterer and DJ from their approved vendor list were perfect. The whole event went off without a problem and our family and friends LOVED the venue. It was a beautiful memory filled wedding. Great uptown location.
We love Levine Museum of the New South! It's such an elegant and unique space for a wedding and/or reception. As photographers one of our favorite things about it is not only is the actual space beautiful and delightful to photograph but the areas around it are also great and visually great for photos. It's easily accessibly (parking), the room is breathtaking for ceremonies and receptions, the main entrance is gorgeous for cocktail hours and the staff is awesome! One of our favorite venues in Charlotte!!!
