    10/17/20 Wedding

    Morningside Inn is a truly magical place to get married! The planning process was so easy and professional. We were assigned Melissa as our planner and day of coordinator, and she was great! She was one step ahead of me and my Type A mind. When COVID hit, everything was up in the air over the summer, but Melissa and the whole team at Morningside Inn was quick to respond to my questions and concerns. The day of went very smoothly, and Melissa was fantastic. She was like my wedding day fairy god mother! I can’t forget to mention THE FOOD! So many of our guests complimented us on the food choice and said how much they enjoyed it. If you’re looking for a perfect venue – look no further! Morningside Inn is a great choice, and a great value. Thank you again, Melissa & Morningside team – you made our COVID wedding truly magical.

    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.
