    The only reason I wanted to have a big legit wedding!

    All the venues I visited were "ok," but I just didn't want to have a wedding. When we went to check out The Livery, I walked in and saw my dream wedding and immediately knew it was right. They were so responsive and helpful, and the site in BEAUTIFUL. I'm so sad this is their last year open, but what a great place!

    Working with the staff at The Livery was great. Emily was very responsive to emails and super informative. I planned my wedding from NC, and she helped alleviate my stress by providing vendor recommendations and guidance on ways to organize my reception space. My guests loved the venue and appreciated that we had the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at the same place. We all had an amazing time. I highly recommend The Livery.

    Our Labor Day weekend wedding was perfect and that is largely due to The Livery. We planned our wedding from out of town and were unsure of what Lexington had to offer in regards to wedding venues. My sister had suggested we check out The Livery thinking it would fit our style. Oh, was she right! It was plenty of space for our 110 guest wedding with a band and dance floor. It is located in downtown Lexington, situated in walking distance to a handful of hotels, which was perfect for our out of town guests. We used the front room for the bar/cocktail hour, which displays artwork, has couches, and an exposed brick wall. When you enter the back room (where we had everything else), it transforms into a beautiful renovated livery with exposed brick and string light-decorated, high beam rafters.
    What my sister didn't know was that The Livery also offered incredible staff. Emily worked with us from day one to the last detail. Emily wants to bring your vision to reality. She brought ease and confidence to the planning of our reception. She will send you layouts, answer any small question promptly and honestly, and even help set the tables (all while being a brand new mama!). We couldn't be happier with our venue choice and would suggest it to anyone wanting to get married in the Lexington area. Thank you!
