    Most magical wedding I could have ever dreamed of!

    Our wedding at the Lightner Museum was more than I could have ever dreamed of. Not only is the venue one of a kind, but the staff went above and beyond to exceed all of our expectations. They truly made our wedding day the most perfect day ever. We are still getting compliments from family and friends and all of them say the exact same thing..."That was the best wedding I've ever been to!" You will not regret having your wedding here, I promise!
