About The Morehead Inn

Located in scenic Charlotte, North Carolina, The Morehead Inn is a charming wedding venue. It sits just minutes away from the city's uptown area, in a more than one hundred-year-old historic estate. Antiques are displayed with a dash of southern charm for a chic, yet comfortable, setting. As well as your wedding day festivities, the inn also hosts engagement parties, pre-wedding showers, rehearsal dinners, and elopements.

Facilities and Capacity

Make a grand entrance to your wedding at The Morehead Inn by descending the sweeping staircase, illuminated by natural light. There are indoor and outdoor spaces available to host your ceremony and reception. Both the Tea Room and the inn's main floor offer an elegant environment for an indoor gathering, thanks to stately fireplaces and sparkling chandeliers. A private courtyard, meanwhile, offers a secluded setting for cocktail receptions or wedding photos. The inn has 12 rooms and suites for the couple and their loved ones to stay in. Each room is decorated in a sophisticated style, with dark wooden period furniture, gold accents, and light colors.

Services Offered

The Morehead Inn's event stylist, Dorrys McArdle, has worked in the industry for more than 25 years. She works closely with couples hosting their wedding here, starting with an initial tour of the event spaces. Dorrys individually plans every celebration to better suit the unique atmosphere and style to-be-weds might want. This is complemented by the delicious menus offered by the on-site catering and beverage team. Your meal can be served by the staff in a variety of ways, including buffet, hors d'oeuvres, and plated. A signature drink can be created to add a truly special touch to those celebratory toasts. Cleanup and setup is taken care of by the inn's team. WiFi is accessible throughout the inn to help the newlyweds and their guests stay up-to-date with the outside world. You are free to work with any wedding vendor of your choice, as this property welcomes outside businesses.

    Dream Come True!

    Having my wedding at The Morehead Inn was a dream come true. From my first encounter with Dorrys and the initial tour I was blown away. The Inn is absolutely beautiful and has everything you need for an intimate wedding. Dorrys was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She was kind, professional and responsive. She had great ideas and was always open to let us stop by for a quick chat or to ask questions. I thought planning during a pandemic was going to be stressful but it was a breeze. Dorrys was always informed on the latest mandates and everyone made our guests and I feel comfortable the entire stay. The food was AMAZING! We chose appetizers from the catering menu and it was absolutely delicious. There were option for some amazing food and it was very hard to choose! The staff from the catering company was great and there was plenty of food and drink for the night. If you are thinking about booking The Morehead Inn then do it, you will not regret having this unique and memorable venue.

    Exactly what we needed!

    Dorrys and the Morehead Inn were our 2020 wedding angels! We wanted a venue that would accommodate a smaller wedding size but still feel special and romantic (our original venue was a huge ballroom that would have felt empty with our downsize from 160 to 29 people). From the second I reached out to Dorrys- about 90 days before the wedding- she was warm, friendly, flexible, responsive, and just everything we needed. We were so lucky that our original wedding date became available, and we were able to have a GORGEOUS wedding that actually had some elements I had originally sacrificed for a bigger wedding (hello beautiful staircase!) The atmosphere is elegant and romantic, the food is amazing, the staff are beyond friendly and professional. My husband and I could not believe how much our COVID friendly wedding still felt like a "normal" wedding, and it is all thanks to The Morehead Inn. We will be back for our anniversary every year if we can!
