  • We were supposed to get married at the Old Lantern this year in September. Like many other weddings this year, we made the decision to postpone. The Old Lantern team has been exceeding our expectations with helping to navigate through this strange time. They have been so helpful with making sure not only that we were taken care of at the Old Lantern itself, but with all of our vendors that we will be working with on our rescheduled day. Julie has been amazing with talking us through everything, giving us updates and never making us feel pressured in any way to stick with our original date - her only concern was truly our happiness and making sure we were comfortable. A big thank you to the whole team for being amazing to work with! We can't WAIT for next year!

    Thank you so much for your high marks and kind words. Like you said, these are strange times and we want to be apart of the solution, not add to the stress while planning your wedding. The Old Lantern genuinely cares about each of our couples. Looking forward to helping you celebrate in 2021.
