    The Most Amazing day!

    We had such an amazing experience with The Lyceum and with Cynthia, Sheila and the entire team. Cynthia was always there for us when we had a question, and she made the whole process seamless. Everyone still continues to tell us how beautiful the venue was, and how gorgeous the stained glass windows are. It truly is breathtaking and certainly a one of a kind venue.

    Lyceum of Galveston Island's reply:

    Hey Christopher! Thank you SO MUCH for letting us know your gratitude! We are happy it was a great and amazing day for you. Thanks for letting the world know that you experience was a delightful one! Thank you!!
