The best night of my life.
Where do I even begin!? Words cannot describe how pleased we were with the staff, venue, and accommodations at the Lightner (Brandy Boulette & team). Especially considering the fact that we planned a destination wedding. The venue is timeless and brings about an effortless feel of glamor and class. Since being introduced to Brandy and her team, I was thrilled to know that such a hands on and professional team would be pulling all the strings behind the scenes on our big day. The Lightner events team exceeded our expectations when it came to executing our vision and whenever there was any stress or anxiety (routinely a part of wedding planning) in the air, Brandy knew just what to do/say. Not to mention she has great connections throughout the St. Augustine/Jacksonville areas, ensuring that the job will get done. Lightner events' relationships with local vendors is also something to be commended. Every time I mentioned Brandy/her team to vendors, they all had wonderful things to say. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Lightner Events.Sent on 12/28/2018
