Working at Lesner Inn – Creating Connections

| , , , , , , , | Leave a Comment

We’re kicking off this Monday by sharing another Lesner Inn lady’s perspective on working at Lesner Inn!  Lindsey Basnight, Event & Sales Manager, shares that what she loves most is creating connections with couples throughout the wedding & event planning process!  More on her thoughts below:

Lindsey Retouch 1.jpgWorking at Lesner Inn for the past year and a half has been filled with beautiful views, fun coworkers, wonderful clients and lots and lots of cake! The event planning business has allowed me to grow creatively & professionally and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity that I have at Lesner Inn.

While there are many aspects that I love about this profession, my favorite part is that I have been lucky enough to meet and connect with so many different clients. From the first email, touring, and all the meetings we have before the big day, I am able to get to know so many brides, grooms, and even sometimes the parents of the couple! The wedding planning process is such a happy, fun, and sometimes stressful time for these couples, so being able to meet with them during this time and help their wedding come together is so fulfilling.  

I always look forward to meetings because it’s also a time to catch up with the couple about everything that has been going on in their lives during this exciting time. Once all the planning is complete the big day finally arrives, I am able to see all the special moments shared between the couple and their friends and families, which makes the job that much more satisfying!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a 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!
