Hunter and I had an absolutely beautiful wedding here. Between the food, service, and naturally beautiful setting our wedding was a dream come true! It was awesome having Jill Corey as the wedding coordinator she was wonderful help and we were so glad she was a part of the awesome package at the Early Inn. Jill is wonderful at making the whole family relaxed, beyond happy, and focused on having the time of their lives on their wedding day. I highly recommend a wedding here and a reception and brunch. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and what’s been done to the interior and exterior looks like a million bucks!!! I literally had the time of my life and was the happiest bride in the world. Five stars all the way and I highly recommend the Early Inn venue for weddings, a weekend of relaxing and just about everything! You’ll freaking love it! They have a wonderful crew. Also Jill’s friend Cierra Phillipe is amazing at hair and it was super convenient having her do my hair at Trendz on the wedding day. All in all it’s a great package and center stage catering will BLOW YOUR MIND with the food! Everyone at my wedding was drooling non stop ! Thank y’all for helping us have the best wedding ever !!!

My husband, Michael, and I had our wedding in September of 2016 at the Early Inn and it was fantastic! We were one of the first weddings that they held there. They now have a different set of staff who help to operate weddings and such than they did when we had our wedding. But regardless of that, the Early Inn was a great option for us as we wanted to have everything in one place. We rented out the bed and breakfast for the entire weekend, it made getting everything ready so easy! They served us breakfast each morning and snacks on the day of the wedding and made sure that everything ran smoothly. I would definitely recommend this venue!
