Water­side Deck

I don’t think I can truly describe how much my hus­band and I enjoyed hav­ing our wed­ding cer­e­mony at the Lesner Inn. I looked at and researched sev­eral places, but after my first con­ver­sa­tion with Eliz­a­beth, I already knew the venue was going to be per­fect for us. It began when they were able to work with me on very short notice. Eliz­a­beth made me feel com­pletely relaxed about the process, not even con­cerned that time was short. She fully explained all my options and was very patient, even when I made changes along the way. The amount of ser­vices Lesner Inn pro­vided made plan­ning this wed­ding almost stress free for me. The loca­tions was beau­ti­ful and sim­ple in a per­fect way. It truly was the right loca­tion and size for my close fam­ily and friends. Even my hus­band has com­mented on it sev­eral times since then. He isn’t want to have an opin­ion on these things and yet he has expressed how much he liked it over and over. He absolutely loved the loca­tion and had so much fun. Know­ing he truly loved it makes me even hap­pier about my choice. Thank you Eliz­a­beth, and the staff at Lesner Inn. It was an expe­ri­ence bet­ter than I ever could have hoped for!

    ENTIRE VENUE

    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!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
