I don’t even know where to begin. Nobody could’ve prepared us for what 2020 had in store for us when we decided to have our daughters wedding at this beautiful venue back in 2019. The team at The Lightner was prepared, professional and most of all thoughtful. The entire team at The Lightner was excellent in communication in answering all my questions and concerns. After postponing from March to August the Wedding was able to happen and it was beyond beautiful. The staff managed all vendors and allowed everyone to enjoy the wedding. Family and guests are still talking about the venue. Thank you to Katie, Brandy, Olivia and the entire Lightner Team for making 8/21/20 the Wedding our daughter dreamed of it was absolutely PERFECT!!Sent on 09/20/2020
The Lightner Museum's reply:Cassie thank you so much for your sweet words! It was wonderful having such a amazing MOB to help along the way! And even though the wedding was postponed we were happy to get to know everyone a little longer and to assist a few extra months! Our team all loved being part of the special day from the first tour to the grande sparkler exit! We cannot wait to see pictures!

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
