EXCELLENT aplace for a venue - An Eventective User from Ft lauderdale , Florida

We just celebrated my daughters wedding at the Stranahan. Absolutely beautiful!!!! The venue itself has history, beautiful backdrops for photo shoots and the management even opened the museum for our guests during the event. The events planner was very helpful, professional and has so much experience to share. She was able to iron out a few glitches and assist the other vendors to co-ordinate the happiest moments of my PRINCESS’s day. THANK YOU LINDSAY & STRANAHAN HOUSE!
