The Lark


The Lark is a stunning historic loft located right in the heart of Downtown Jacksonville. The restored 1920s venue features wrap-around windows overlooking the lush James Weldon Johnson park. The bright and open floor plan is a versatile setting for your special occasion. The Lark is non-exclusive, allowing your choice of vendors to tailor the look and feel of the space to suit your vision. The Lark is ideally sized at 4,300 square feet of open space, providing a versatile floor plan capable of hosting up to 150 guests for a ceremony, reception, or rehearsal dinner. For engagement parties and cocktail events, the space can comfortably hold up to 214 guests.

In addition, The Lark has partnered with James Weldon Johnson Park to offer couples a unique wedding format. The James Weldon Johnson Park is a beautiful city space with several fountains and lush landscaping, and sits directly across the street from The Lark. Couples have the option of hosting outdoor ceremonies in the park, followed by a reception at The Lark.

The Lark proudly supports the Jacksonville art community by showcasing local work. Art is rotated quarterly and is all for sale with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the artists.
