Love Lumen!    posted 8/9/2012

We had our daughter's wedding reception at Lumen very recently and were absolutely thrilled with the party. Sarah, our event manager, is wonderful. She takes care of every little detail for you. The servers and bartenders are so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The building/space itself is awesome. We had rave reviews from our guests on everything, especially the food and the space itself. The changing lights make it so striking. We couldn't be happier with Sarah and all the nice people at Lumen. Thanks for everything!

Perfect Night    posted 7/24/2012

We held our wedding reception at Lumen, and everything was just perfect. The food was delicious. Sarah, the wedding coordinator, was amazing to work with. She took care of every little detail and was so accommodating to all of our requests. The waiters and bartender were great. The lights really set the mood and looked great in photos. I would highly recommend Lumen to other brides!

DON'T GO TO LUMEN!!!    posted 12/18/2013 (updated 12/19/2013)

Wedding planning was easy and fun, fast forward to the wedding night. Everything that was "compliments" of Lumen, we did not see. They promised candles, lounge furniture, bongos, pillows, & cocktail tables and NONE of that was done for our reception! Even after we discussed all of the details and we bought flowers for the cocktail tables. The entire upstairs was not set, which was very dissapointing to say the least. The staff did not serve one of our guests also, how does that get missed?! So we paid for a meal that was not received, even worse, he ate his child's meal! To make matters worse, ONE OF OUR GUESTS WAS ROBBED AT GUN POINT RIGHT OUTSIDE THE LUMEN DOORS!!! He was not hurt, Thank God, but traumatized to say the least! We had cops at our wedding reception! Afterwards, everyone was upset and most of the guests left. So because Lumen would not provide security and Valet was not there(they said it would be hard to get and we wouldn't need it), we paid for a reception that no one wanted to be at because they did not feel safe. We tried to make the best of the evening, but you can imagine how we felt. After the wedding, Lumen carelessly packed up our belongins. Our unity candle came back with chunks missing, and our charger plates came back dirty and scratched! We also did not receive all of our belongins back, they said if they find them they will call. I thought for sure somebody would have reached out, we heard nothing. They did give us a bottle of champagne, I guess that makes everything ok. I reached out to the owner, and when I spoke to her she made me feel like everything was my fault. She did apologize, but basically we were the third event of the weekend and got the short end of the stick. DON'T GO TO LUMEN! They do not follow through with anything, and it is not safe! And I still have not received all of my items from the reception. We were so dissapointed! I work in the wedding industry, and I tell everybody not to go there!!
