    The lyceum is gorgeous

    Cynthia @ The Lyceum was a joy to work with and was extremely helpful throughout our process. We unfortunately did not get to have our big day at the Lyceum due to COVID-19 and the health concerns Summer 2020, but if we could do it again, it would be there. The Lyceum has so much to offer and is truly BEAUTIFUL inside and out. I would highly recommend this location for your wedding if you are looking for a large, gorgeous, and price friendly venue.
