    Showstopping Venue

    We recently just had our wedding at the Lightner museum and this was truly the perfect space for us. The staff that work during the wedding are awesome and they communicate very well with other vendors. They accommodate your needs beyond measures, and genuinely want to give you what you want for your special day. The venue is just as gorgeous in person as pictures you’ll see, and my guests loved every second. The mezzanine area worked great for all our guests to eat and be a little more relaxed upstairs, and the pool area gave us the best dance floor and lounge area. Their bar services are awesome and bartenders were great with our guests! I would choose this venue over and over again, we were beyond pleased with how everything came out. 11/10 recommend to anyone interested. Thank you soo much to their whole team!!!!

    Brianna you are too kind! Thank you so much for the sweet review, but more importantly for hosting your ceremony and reception at Lightner Museum! You and Andy are two beautiful people and the details in your wedding were stunning and your dress left people speechless! We cannot wait to see the photos! We wish you both tons of love and hope you visit us! Cheers!
