I Found The Wedding Venue Of Our Dreams
My Fiance and I spent alot of time deciding whether or not we were going to have a small wedding outside of the country or a large wedding with all of our family and friends. When we spent time looking up venues we could not find one that had beautiful outdoor space with a large ballroom, large enough to hold our loved ones. Morais was a gem that I found and immediately booked an appointment to see it. An hour outside of DC which is perfect (a destination outside of the city), Morais is breathtaking at first glance. But the ballroom, the ballroom was what won our hearts. This venue had everything we ever dreamed of all at once. We couldnt have asked for a more fitting venue. The staff has been so helpful, informative and answer any and every question we have. Our wedding is next year and I can not wait!Sent on 06/20/2019

Beautiful venue. Ahmazing staff. Cathy R., we love you!
Morais is truly a gem. I remember when we were doing our first tour of the venue, I was skeptical during the drive down to Morais. Coming from the DC Metro Area, I felt we were out in the middle of nowhere. But this perception changed quickly. As soon as we had pulled up to the venue, I knew immediately this would be our venue.Sent on 10/16/2019
This venue would be perfect for anyone looking for an amazing, unique experience. The venue offers two outdoor ceremony sites (at the pergola and by the atrium, which is nothing short of breathless), and two indoor ceremony sites (the chapel and the ballroom). Wedding days tend to go by so quick. It just helps a little to cut down on the travel time between the ceremony and reception. Morais truly does offer everything in one stop; this is including two beautifully designed bride's and groom's suite, with full bathrooms in both.
My interactions with Morais began with Cathy Ricciardi, the onsite venue coordinator. Cathy has been my go-to contact through this entire process. She is truly such a genuine and kind soul. Cathy knew how much I trusted her, how much I wanted her to be there with me from beginning to end. She supervised from the beginning until take down on the day of. Thank you, Cathy and the Morais Team, for showering me and the people most dear to me with kindness.
The only things that worked against me was time, and traffic. So anyone reading this review, please take into account all the traffic people will have to deal with coming to Morais, and account for a bit of cushion in your timeline. Quality hotels near Morais is also scarce, so be mindful of lodging options for your guests.

Stunning venue, fantastic experience
The second you set foot at Morais, you'll be amazed. It's absolutely beautiful - and has incredible options for photos and celebrations - from the gorgeous patio of the main building, to an outdoor ceremony location complete with a waterfront pergola, a perfect bridal suite for getting ready on site, a sprawling, elegant ballroom, and of course, the vineyards. What made it even better was the staff! Cathy is wonderful - always happy to help, responds quickly, and is just a pleasure to work with. I could not recommend Morais more! It was the perfect location for our special day!Sent on 09/18/2019
