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.
