If you are looking for a beautiful venue to have an intimate wedding Il Lugano should be your #1 choice. I’ve been working with them for the past 15 months planning my wedding and it has truly been a dream. The hotel is beautiful and is located on the intercostal!

The catering department is attentive, kind, and thoughtful. I don’t know where they find the staff but they are miracle workers. You can’t find a better team than Rebecca and Amanda! These women not only help me plan a wedding but also created a memorable experience that kept me positive when the planning process became overwhelming. Customer service was this hotels #1 priority.

On the day of our brunch wedding I felt completely relieved of all duties. Amanda had everything running smoothly and didn’t bother to give me updates when problems aroused. My guests were in love with the intercostal views for the ceremony and cocktail hour, which were located on their newly built deck and the lawn. The food was also spectacular! Everyone raved about the wide variety of choices and the quick service from the staff.

I got married two weeks ago and every time I think about that day I feel as if there couldn’t have been a better choice then Il Lugano. I have no complaints and all the gratitude for their making my wedding day so special.

If you are a bride on a budget and want to have a spectacular wedding with little sacrifice or if you are looking for great customer service you need look no further!

Lastly, the hotel itself is quite beautiful. The rooms are modernly decorated and spacious. Their restaurant de Campo Osteria (who catered our wedding) has a delicious menu. Be sure to try the fresh mozzarella dish because it will have your taste buds going crazy!

This boutique hotel is perfect for prepping for a wedding. Each room is spacious with kitchens and the suites are HUGE! I even had my bachelorette weekend here and had the best time.
