    Working with Lindsey and the Lesner Inn was great! I planned the majority of my wedding from out of town and Lindsey could not have been more patient with my constant emails. The venue looked beautiful at the reception and my guests loved the views and the food. The crab cakes were everyone’s favorite. Thank you so much to the Lesner Inn team and & Lindsey for such a beautiful wedding!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

  • It's been a while since you've seen the faces behind the doors of Lesner Inn so we wanted to introduce our managers! First off… our fearless leader, Alexis Hionis. Alexis is a Virginia Beach native, born and bred. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia and after a short stint in the Los Angeles event industry, she returned to her East Coast beach roots. With an inherent love for all things wedding, paired with her creative energy and attention to detail, Alexis has found her home at The Lesner Inn. Since 2010, she has overseen hundreds of weddings but still hasn't grown tired of the excitement of the big day...and the wedding cakes. When she isn't in the office, you’ll find her giving back to the community she loves so much, through her nonprofit, @riseVB. Fun fact: she was recognized for her efforts in 2018 when she won Coastal Virginia Biz’s Best Local Leader Making A Difference award!
