Better than a fairytale
The Cornhusker is long-standing tradition for wedding receptions in my family, as both my mother and sister celebrated their marriages in the grand ballroom. So, when I got engaged, it was a no-brainer to choose this venue. Patrick, Nick, Jana, and Irish helped us work out not only the ceremony space, but also cocktail hour and the reception. Nick coordinated rooms for bride/groom getting-ready and a hospitality room as well. They even notified us of another large Lincoln event and recommended a large room block because they knew hotel rooms would be of short supply. We had a delightful food tasting, which allowed us to choose our favorite appetizers/dinner and the chef was friendly and very accommodating to our needs. They coordinated with all of our vendors without a hitch. Even the smallest requested details were acknowledged, having water in the getting-ready rooms, luggage transported from room to room, being greeted with a beverage immediately after the ceremony, having wedding gifts transported to a secure location after the ceremony, extra food packaged into a mini-fridge in the honeymoon suite in case we didn't have time to eat dinner, cake/decor stored until the next day, and we were surprised with a dessert plate upon arriving to our room as a married couple with personal congratulatory notes from the staff. We were spoiled for the after-wedding breakfast with Maisy as our server, who kept high spirits even before we had our coffee AND served in a timely fashion for guests who were heading out of town. We are honored to have our historic photo as Mr. and Mrs. on THE staircase! Thank you to everyone involved in our event, it was better than a fairytale!Sent on 07/25/2019

Book it before it's gone!
The cornhusker staff helped all of our visions come true. With the help of Nick and his team, we transformed the upstairs ballroom into a classic, elegant wedding dream. They were very accommodating, professional, and willing! I wish we could get married again next weekend just to relive the reception and all its glory. Best place to have your wedding reception, hands down!!Sent on 07/31/2019
