Our Wedding Venue
There are 3 main areas of this historic Galveston wedding venue: the main Lyceum Chapel, the more intimate Lyceta Room, and the outdoor lighted courtyard. Let’s take a look at each one of these.
The Lyceum Chapel is our showcase and is one of the most beautiful wedding chapels in Galveston. First of all, you will be amazed by it’s stunning floor-to-ceiling stained-glass windows. During the day, the suns rays illuminate the venue with bright color. Likewise, at night they provide an artistic backdrop like huge pieces of art in in a gallery.
Next, you will look up and gaze at the beautifully designed vaulted ceiling. The lofty curved arches and beautiful woodwork give a feeling of grandeur.
Finally, the shining hardwood floors bring quality, warmth and elegance. We diligently keep them clean and ready for the next event.
The Lyceta Room
The Lyceta is a smaller and more intimate space for your special day. This room is separated from the Lyceum by pull-down partions. This flexibility allows you to jointly use it with the Lyceum, or to use it privately as a preparation area.
The Lyceta is excellent as a cocktail reception area, buffet line, or dance floor. The full stage area is perfect for your live band or DJ.
You have unlimited flexibility in how you use the Lyceum and the Lyceta Room for your event! Schedule your tour and we will help guide you with what you can do for your special day!
Outdoor Courtyard Setting
Nestled between The Lyceum and First Lutheran Church’s main sanctuary next door is a relaxing, beautifully-landscaped courtyard. The courtyard is kept private by wrought-iron fencing.
Also, a Victorian-style Gazebo has lights and electrical outlets. Therefore, you can have your food or beverage vendor set up an open bar. Or, your musicians can plug in their speakers.
Finally, the overhead lights provide a beautiful overhead to ensure a relaxing ambiance.
The lower level is accessible by elevator from the Lyceum. Also, it can be entered through the courtyard door.
Your private fully-furnished, private bridal suite room.
