    The BEST wedding venue!!!

    My husband and I had our cocktail hour and reception at the Lightner Museum in October and cannot say enough good things about not only our wedding night but the entire process leading up to it!! Genevieve and her team were incredibly easy to work with, very communicative, patient with my millions of questions, and made sure the entire day went smoothly. Beyond being professional, it’s clear that Genevieve and her team wanted us to have a perfect day and did everything they could to make that happen, and we cannot thank them enough. We felt like they truly cared about us, and it made the whole experience that much better. Thank you all—wish we could do it again every weekend!!

    The Lightner Museum's reply:

    The sweetest couple!! Bianca it was such an honor to work with you and Lucas and help your day come to life. I can't stop thinking about how beautiful everything was! I wish we could do it all over again! Wishing you both all the best!!

    “The Wedding of the Century”

    Genevieve and Lucy were more than just Amazing! The wedding day came and I didn’t have to think of one worry or concern. I was able to enjoy our daughter and new son-in -law. I was able to breath in the magical lights, the vows, the toasts, and all 150 guests. Not one complaint, not one issue, there were so many details. Genevieve, Lucy and their team were on top of everything. I loved that Lucy took 5 or 10 minutes to keep me notified and involved with the entire wedding. Our guest keep asking us to do it all over again because it was so fun! They are calling it the “Wedding of the Century” , “The best wedding they have ever been to” Every vendor that Lucy and Genevieve recommended were perfect! I had a million ideas and Lucy guided me and helped me put all the pieces together. We had many great phone call and zoom meetings, she made it so easy. Sunny Stems, were just Amazing flowers and beautiful, fresh and gorgeous. Creme de la Cocoa! Oh my goodness! Very decadent! The most beautiful cake with our little puppy chewed tucked in the cake so so sweet. The desserts went in 10 minutes. Emma Christine photographer I will be using her again! Outstanding! She is Just so wonderful and got each and every pose that I wanted for the bride groom and families, I don’t know how she did it but just breathtaking and jaw dropping photos. The videographer…. I have cried so many time…he captured history, we will be using him again as well! First Sight Films!!! Coastal Celebrations! +Lucy + the famous bride and groom sweetheart chair and the couches will go down in the history books! If I am forgetting anyone, it has been one month since the wedding and We are still talking about the Wedding. Thank you Genevieve, Thank you Lucy, Thank you Everyone for making our Forever Memories! Kind regards,
    Heather
