The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne




The I.W. Phillips House and the Dr. Phillips House at the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne offers the grace of a Southern-style house with an enchanting garden and other unique elements that make it the perfect space for your wedding ceremony and reception. Imagine a charming and romantic ceremony in which you say your “I Dos” in front of a stone fountain in the lush, intimate garden surrounded by blooming flowers and lanterns hanging from the trees. The garden can also transition into the perfect cocktail hour location with your guests sipping signature cocktails amongst the beauty of the garden and the whimsy of twinkling fairy lights strung through the trees. The I.W. Phillips’ first-floor reception room is the perfect space to invite your loved ones to celebrate your wedding reception with you. The rich oriental rugs, stunning Tiffany window, and even an 18th century Flemish oil painting bring old-world elegance to the space and to your celebration. Your wedding ceremony and reception will be unforgettable within the grounds of the I.W. Phillips House.
