It was amazing!
We decided to have the cerimony and the reception at Morningside Inn. The food was absolutely amazing! We got the chicken stuffed with cherries and spinach. Let me tell you I have never tasted anything like it.
Our wedding coordinator was a doll, so sweet, and amazing, Melissa was. They did their best to keep me at ease before we walked out for the ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone.Sent on 11/13/2019

My husband and I were married at Morningside on 10/13/2019 and I would highly recommend this venue. From our first initial tour to our rehearsal our planning coordinator was super helpful and attentive. Having a coordinator included with the venue was what set Morningside apart from other places. Our coordinator ensured all of the planning and our actual day went smoothly. It was so nice not having to worry about all of the little details on the day of. The food and drinks were delicious and we still have family and friends talking about how beautiful the venue grounds were. I would highly recommend Morningside and my husband and I will look back on our wedding day fondly thanks to them.Sent on 01/14/2020

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.
