Working at Lesner Inn – Unique Details

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

Happy Monday everyone!  To kick off the week, we hope you take a moment to read what Event & Sales Manager, Cayleen Javorsky, loves most about working at Lesner Inn!  You may be surprised to know that it’s not just the great food… more on her thoughts below:

Cayleen Retouch 1.jpgWhen I think back to how I ended up working at Lesner Inn, planning one of the most epic days of someone’s life, I think back to my first experience working around weddings in Virginia Beach.  While I was in college, I spent my summers working at the front desk of a local Virginia Beach hotel.  During my time there, I was able to meet so many people who were celebrating their wedding weekend!  My interaction with their big day was pretty much non-existent, but I always got to see the team of vendors pile in & work their magic to create what each couple had planned for so long to be the best day of their lives!  Watching what each couple found to be their perfect wedding come to life was so fun to watch, & it has easily become one of my favorite parts about my job at Lesner Inn. 

Since starting as an Event & Sales Manager at Lesner Inn almost 3 years ago, I have seen so many different color schemes, menu & dessert choices, & newfound traditions that couples have wanted to incorporate to set their wedding apart from the rest.  Even though a lot of wedding trends stay pretty constant, most of our couples will have at least one minute detail that is completely unique to their style & tastes.  Each of these unique details can make one wedding the complete opposite of another, but regardless of if they choose to have breakfast for dinner, a gelato bar for dessert, or to dance to an unconventional song all of these weddings are perfect in their own ways!

These unique touches make my job SO much fun, especially when even I am surprised on the night of (shout out to Amanda & David Haas for the guest appearance from a T-rex)!

    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!
