Best. Night. Ever.
From planning and preparation, to the main event, my Lightner wedding experience was exceptional! I can not say enough good things about the staff. Katie and her crew worked tirelessly to ensure that the entire night ran smoothly and went off without a hitch! Every detail was well thought out and executed flawlessly. The staff was incredibly attentive and knew what we wanted, before we even knew (food from our buffet, a drink or glass of water, etc.)! They were truly a godsend! We had our ceremony in the "Grand Lobby" (which I would highly recommend, it was GORGEOUS!), and then moved through the museum to the "pool area" for cocktail hour, dinner and the reception. The space held our 165 guests well, and everyone was comfortable throughout the night. The acoustics of the building itself, made for a great sound from the band, and we enjoyed dancing the night away under the fun string lighting! If you're looking for a venue that's iconic, unique and functional, then this is definitely where you want to be! :)Sent on 01/08/2020

Look No Further for a Perfect & Unique Wedding Experience
My wife and I couldn't be happier, truly, with our perfect wedding day. From the first point of contact, we were in awe of the venue and the service we received. The venue speaks for itself. We wanted something different than the stereotypical wedding factory of a hotel or event venue. If you want a unique and picture-perfect location, there is truly no other option in Florida. Throughout the planning process, Brandy was AMAZING and found creative solutions, making each step as seamless and stress-free as possible. If you cross-reference our wedding date, you will find that our wedding occurred two days before The Lightner closed due to Coronavirus, when CDC limited gatherings to 10 people, and thus our wedding day faced more challenges and cancellations than most. Regardless, Brandy and her team modified plans and delivered a great event. We couldn't be more thankful and couldn't more highly recommend this perfect wedding experience.Sent on 03/31/2020

Amazing wedding venue
We are so happy that we picked the Lightner Museum as our wedding venue. It had everything we could ever want. Having an event at the Lighter is awesome because you are basically getting the whole museum! It's so exciting for guests to be able to see the ceremony in one area, have cocktail hour in another area, get to see the museum and then have the reception allllll in one location. We loved working with Katie and the Lightner team and really couldn't have asked for more on our wedding day.Sent on 01/28/2020
