Beautiful venue and great, professional staff!
Morningside Inn is a gem in Frederick - stunningly beautiful, both interior and landscape. The staff is excellent and the food was delicious. Our coordinators were professional and a great resource. The day of the wedding was seamless thanks to Shannon and the Morningside Inn staff. Our special day was wonderful largely thanks to their efforts.Sent on 08/30/2019
We did our engagement photoshoot at the venue in the fall and our wedding was in the summer - there are so many great spots at Morningside Inn and there were plenty of opportunities for scenery change. We worked with Lauren at the beginning and she is on top of it like a pro. Then we were assigned to Shannon - she definitely knows what she's doing and also was able to help keep me calm which is a feat!
We also did a menu tasting prior to our wedding where we met the chef - he was great and receptive to feedback. I was impressed. He was flexible and accommodating to our vegetarian and vegan friends.
Overall, we had a great experience with Morningside Inn and highly recommend it for your wedding day! :)

I chose Morningside because of all that is included at the venue plus the beautiful views there. The food was delicious and Lauren was my coordinator and she was fantastic, very professional and calming. I really liked that they had the option to go inside for the ceremony in case of bad weather. They are very well organized and make the wedding run very smoothly and without issues. I could not have asked for a better place to get married!Sent on 07/12/2019

Beautiful Venue, Great food
Lauren made everything so easy. We basically just had to show up and enjoy ourselves! We got so many compliments about the beautiful venue and also the food. Some said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. The Chef, Tim, even worked with us on a special hors d'oeuvres that turned out amazingly delicious! Thanks again Lauren, Tim, and the whole staff!Sent on 05/29/2019
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.
