We had a wonderful experience with Morningside Inn. They were really helpful in getting all of the details squared away for the ceremony/reception. They asked questions about things that we hadn't thought about and were able to give suggestions when we weren't sure what direction to go in. The food was wonderful and many of our guests commented on it. They also loved the location which was so picturesque. Many of our guests took advantage of the landscape to take walks around the lake or down to the willow tree. It was wonderful that we had a great indoor space for the reception but guests could relax outside when they got too hot from dancing inside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. On the day, I felt completely relaxed and Mary took care of everything. There were no problems and I was never bothered with minute details- I was really allowed to enjoy my wedding. I would highly recommend Morningside Inn!

The absolute best decision I made for my wedding was booking at Morningside Inn. They made the entire planning process easy and seamless, and the day of my wedding was completely magical thanks to their staff. We got tons of compliments on the beauty of the venue, the food, and how seamless the entire ceremony and reception were. Special shout out to Lauren who was absolutely wonderful to work with - SO responsive and amazingly good at what she does. If you are on the fence about Morningside Inn as a wedding venue, book with them! You will not regret it!

Special day made even more special
Everything about Morningside Inn was more than spectacular! From the day we first met with them down to the day of, they were absolutely amazing. Melissa, our wedding coordinator, was on top of every detail, and was extremely helpful and prompt with all communication. The setting of the venue is breathtaking and we got so many compliments on the venue itself as well as the top notch service. As a bride, I did not have to think or stress about anything that day. I got to just have the best time of my life, this was all thanks to them!
It is always a pleasure to work with Lauren and the staff at Morningside Inn. As a wedding officiant I've seen a lot of venues and worked with their coordinators. I appreciate the tremendous level of professionalism and expertise that Lauren provides as she and her staff facilitate the wedding, and reception details. I also appreciate her ability to work with the bride and groom to make their day one to remember. It is my privilege to endorse Lauren and Morningside Inn for your wedding and reception.

Morningside Inn is a lovely location for a wedding. I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding there 2 years ago. I took an HDR photo of the surrounding landscape and it is still one of my very favorite images.
Morningside Inn is one of the most beautiful and diverse locations for any event, especially weddings. An amazing staff who work there and very attentive to your needs. Beautiful scenic area great for portraits that will last years.
