About

On WeddingWire since 2017

The Morehead Inn is a historic wedding venue nestled in the picturesque Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte, NC. The estate was built in 1917 by London architect William Peeps for C.C. Coddington, who brought the first Buick south of the Mason-Dixon line. Now a renovated boutique hotel as well as an event space, the manor combines retro charm with modern comfort. It welcomes couples through its splendid doors to celebrate their romantic day, surrounded by Southern hospitality.

For your ceremony and reception, you will have access to The Morehead Inn’s distinct event spaces. Exchange your vows in the secluded courtyard or gardens, or take advantage of the tastefully-furnished indoor locations and sweeping staircase. These include the Tea Room, Library, Main Floor, and the Front Patio. Each of these rooms features breathtaking chandeliers, antique furniture, intimate fireplaces, and elegant vintage accents. The property also comes with twelve luxurious overnight accommodations where you and your guests can relax and rejuvenate over the wedding weekend. These suites boast four-poster beds, eco-friendly amenities, WiFi, cable tv, plush robes, and linens.

We work with Something Classic as the exclusive providers of all catering, bar, and rental needs. We will work with you to create a completely customized experience, as we believe your wedding day should reflect your unique love story! We will build a custom menu, layout, and experience for you and your guests. Each wedding hosted with us includes access to our inventory of tables and chairs, as well as beautiful china, glassware, and utensils for your place settings. Our venue host will assist you every step of the way to ensure your day is everything you are dreaming!

Bridal shower

I hosted a bridal shower at the Morehead Inn for my daughter and I could not have been more pleased with the experience. Brooke Parker was our events director and she was very responsive and accommodating. Both the food and service were great. We especially enjoyed the coziness and overall ambiance that the venue offered. We had breakfast in the Tea Room which looked out into the courtyard and were able to move outside to the garden area to take some beautiful pictures. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a more intimate cozy place for their bridal shower, baby shower, wedding or whatever.

Incredible wedding venue + hospitality

The Morehead Inn delivered the wedding of our dreams—I can’t say it much better than that! We toured a few venues in Charlotte, with Morehead being our last stop. Let’s just say we were blown away. Despite having held a wedding the night before, the team had laid out a sample table and table setting for us to see, and took us on a full tour of the public spaces and private rooms. You can rent the inn for an entire weekend, including the guest rooms, which is what we did—and it was a fantastic experience for us and our wedding party and family who stayed there. Having all of our VIP’s right there was wonderful, and they got to enjoy the beautiful guest rooms and hospitality of the Morehead. Their team delivered on every level—from big tasks like elaborate room flips to the tiny details, like bringing up snacks and cider to our grandmother who has limited mobility. The absolute care and joy that the team brings to their work was clear in everything they did.

We have to give the biggest shoutout ever to Brooke, Venue & Events Director, who was our point of contact. From the first tour to the end of our wedding night, Brooke was there with us. I think we sent her about a zillion emails and a trillion questions, and she answered them all with speed, kindness, and know-how. She is an asset to the Morehead and truly made our experience so special and personal. You can tell that she loves her work. When we realized we hadn’t brought firewood for our after party around the fire pit out back, she went above and beyond and had her team go out and get some—the smores around the fire pit were an incredible end to the night.

The Morehead Inn’s catering partner, Something Classic, did an incredible job as well. Hannah was our bartender and breakfast server as well as general rockstar, she brought such a lovely energy to the event! Every bite of food we had was delicious, and their menus had so many great choices for us to select from. We loved how flexible they were with drinks as well–we were able to do signature cocktails, which our guests loved.

The decor and design of the Inn itself are beautiful—classic, with a touch of flair. This means that all of our photos turned out especially pretty, because the backdrop of the inn is so gorgeous. We got married in December, and the Inn had lovely Christmas decor that was timeless and beloved by our guest—many photos were taken under their Christmas trees!

Brooke and the Morehead want to bring your vision to life—and they clearly love to throw beautiful, imaginative, special, intimate events. We had an incredible time (and so did our guests) at the Inn.

We truly cannot recommend them enough—visit, and you will see why!

Best food ever and a venue planner who has a heart for the couple

Our daughter got married at the Morehead Inn in June of 2023. It was the most beautiful, perfect day! I am still receiving calls and texts about how beautiful and seamless it all was. And everyone raved about the food! Said it was the best they ever had at a wedding ! (The chicken skewers with pickles and honey mustard and the beef medallions are worth every penny!!’).
Brooke is the venue planner and she is whole heartedly INVESTED in making the bride’s day perfect. She calmed this momma’s nerves down several times over the year long engagement and assured me everything would be perfect. And it was!
Brooke will meet with you or talk to you over and over until she knows you are happy. And she does it all while smiling!
They say the venue planner is just out for the venue. Not Brooke! She even cried with us!
