Such a beautiful setting and the staff was fantastic! From the way they packed up everything (flowers and extras) at the end of the evening for us, through the care in which they gave extra TLC to my nephew in a wheelchair made the wedding come off without a hitch. Lauren was our co-coordinator and she was a calm, supportive presence before, during and after the event. I can't wait to see the pictures.
Our daughter's wedding was held at MSI in April! What can we say! Shannon, the wedding coordinator was fabulous in meeting with us regarding our meals,Everything went off without a hitch! The tables looked beautiful, the staff was professional and the food was delicious! Chef Tim even created two vegan meals for us at the last minute and it was delicious! Soundsations DJ Mark was WONDERFUL and kept everyone moving throughout the night and was very professional. Thank you, Morningside Inn Staff for making our daughter's wedding a wonderful day!
We recently held our company holiday party at Morningside Inn. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The venue was decorated beautifully for Christmas, even had a Christmas tree. The meal was delicious and, we had way more food than we expected. We highly recommend the roasted carved turkey. So good! Our guest could not stop raving of how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was. We thank all the staff that helped that night, and as well as Teresa, Jeanie and, Roger for all their help leading up to the event. We will be back next year for sure!
Our daughter was married on the Saturday after Thanksgiving - 11/26/2017 and to say it was awesome is a vast understatement! The venue, the staff, the arrangements, the planning, the implementation, the food and DJ were SPECTACULAR!!! Thank you everyone who was involved in the production and delivery of a truly magical evening!
My husband and I were married on September 9th 2016 and I am still receiving compliments on how beautiful our wedding was. This was the perfect venue for our special day, Lauren was our wedding planner and she was AMAZING to work with!
Steve and I are 60-ish and this wedding was the second for both of us. Being older, we both knew what we wanted, liked and disliked, which is sometimes not always a good thing! Similar to the other posts, the minute we drove in and walked in to the dining area with the bank of windows looking out over the gorgeous countryside, we were both sold. We were planning a small ceremony and reception (50 guests), and Lauren went through our options, dates and prices, helping us settle on Nov. 4 2016. She didn't blink when we showed up at Morningside (unscheduled) on Nov. 4 2015 to time and watch the sunset. She even managed to get us perfect weather on our day so we could stay with the decision to have the ceremony outside. Also important to note, we did not want to do many of the traditional wedding things -- no professional photographer, no wedding cake, no bouquet or garter toss -- and we wanted to have dinner served FIRST. Lauren handled it all with ease, and made sure the entire day went smoothly and as planned. Every, and I mean every, guest told me that night that the place was beautiful, the staff excellent, and the food was incredible! My 80-year-old uncle told me it was the best and most fun wedding he had been to ever, and he would be talking about it for a long time. Special thanks to: Chef Tim who in addition to serving a great meal, also made my family's pickled eggs; to the staff who assisted my handicapped relatives between the levels numerous times; to DJ Jim (Soundsations) who had the dance floor packed all night. IT WAS A BLAST!
WOW!! We had spent some time looking at some wedding venues prior to our visit to Morningside Inn, but the minute we arrived for our tour, we absolutely knew, "this is it!!"From all the planning, preparation, and the actual wedding event, Morningside was beyond spectacular! Though the entire Morningside staff was outstanding, we would especially like to single out Lauren Conklin, our "Wedding Planner Extraordinaire". Her professionalism and attention to detail is second to no one!! Our Lord blessed us with Lauren. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! Susan and I also utilized most of Morningside's suggested vendors, and they were a great value, and perfect as well (Crystal Lenz Photography, Soundsations DJ, and Stone House Bakery). Lauren and Morningside Susan and I love you guys 🙂
The Morningside Coordinators and Staff are Five Star!!We had family and friends driving a good distance. Some arrived MUCH earlier than allowed, but they were welcomed and made to feel comfortable. Quickly water and sodas came out and offered.One guest commented on the fact that this was not your typical wedding. The atmosphere was classy yet cozy, comfortable and seemed very family oriented. Add that this is not the typical wedding atmosphere they were expecting. With the beautiful grounds and surroundings, they were made to feel like honored guests and truly enjoyed the unique experience.Chef Tim is a master in his work. The food was exquisite. Coming from a family of food critics Morningside passed the test with high ratings. I received comments on the London Broil, Salmon and Stuffed Shells. All food was kept hot and delicious. My daughter (the bride) especially loved the Cous-Cous Salad.We had a mix-up with our seating chart and Morningside made the matter appear to be a mistake on their part. Staff went out of their way to provide a solution that accommodated everyone involved. I must tell you that was a sincere blessing because it involved one of our head tables. Those types of problems can be delicate matters!Another guest commented on the coffee. “I haven’t had a cup like that in a long time”, he said.He wanted to grab the entire pot and bring it to his table.Our bar tender worked very hard. Not being a drinker I went around asking others how the drinks were, they all commented “EXCELLENT”, “STRONG – no skimping”, GOOD-good drinks!DJ Jim, awesome important person to move the event along. He got all pronunciations of the names correct and was a pure delight to work with. Every request that was made for music, he was able to accommodate. He obviously scoped the crowed and selected the right music and made the right comments to insure that everyone had a good time. Seriously I have never seen a dance floor so crowded.By the end of the evening the staff was family to us. We enjoyed each and every one of them and appreciated their support and hard work – especially on a holiday weekend!Everything was packed up as nicely as it arrived. The bride and groom goblets were rinsed out and wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure a safe ride home. The pictures and frames were carefully packaged any leftover favors and table decorations all cared for and returned nicely. Not one item was missing.We decided to select vendors recommended by Morningside and that was a good decision. I will addComments about the additional vendors on their web pages.We can’t say enough about Lauren Conklin our coordinator. Her nice strong voice kept everyone in line and on time. All the wrinkles got smoothed out and my daughter got the wedding of her dreams.I highly recommend Morningside Inn.
My Daughter got married here on July 3, 2016. Everything was perfect, from beginning to end. Mary was wonderful. Every detail was taken care of before we could even think of it. Also the food was excellent, not your typical wedding food. Thanks Mary to you and your team. We recommend Morningside to anyone planning a wedding.
We had our wedding here on July 3, 2016 and it was amazing! We could not have asked for a better staff, location, or wedding planner. Being from out of town it is always hard to plan your wedding so far away but Mary did an excellent job! She ran the rehearsal and the day of the wedding smooth, we did not have to worry about a thing! The whole day was perfect and all of our guests, the ones from in town and out of town, said we picked the perfect venue and it was such a great wedding! This couldn't have happened without Mary and the staff at Morningside Inn!
