    Alex & the treasury team

    My husband and I had our reception at the Lightner Museum, which was a beautiful venue. Alex and the rest of the treasury team were very responsive and professional throughout the planning process. Our friends and family could not stop raving about how gorgeous our wedding day was! Would 10/10 recommend the treasury team to plan your upcoming wedding!

    First Class

    Katie and the team at The Lightner were exceptional to work with. The venue speaks for itself but our special day wouldn’t have been the same without the work they did behind the scenes.
