Frederick Wedding and Reception Frequently Asked Questions

Dreamy Fairytale Wedding

Morningside Inn feels like you are in a dream. At this venue you get a little bit of everything. There is a country charm with beautiful corn fields to greet you and your guests. The venue almost looks like a country barn but when you get inside it’s castle-like with arched stone walls and panoramic views. Outside there is a enchanting willow tree with a pond. Throughout our ceremony we could hear the water fountain and the birds, it was so peaceful. Morningside Inn is truly breathtaking. I could not have asked for a better venue. Melissa the coordinator is the best and the food is amazing. On the day of our wedding with all the hustle and bustle my bridal shoes got misplaced. Melissa was awesome and even helped with trying to find them luckily there was a spare. Melissa if you are reading this I found them and I feel like Cinderella. My husband Mark and I will never forget how magical our wedding day was at Morningside Inn.

Our Perfect Fall Wedding

My husband and I were married at Morningside Inn on October 13, 2019. Our day was absolutely perfect and I would highly recommend booking Morningside for your wedding too! The planning process was so smooth from when we first toured the facility to our rehearsal dinner. Our coordinator, Melissa Jerome, was so helpful and reassuring throughout the entire process I don't know what we would have done without her! Morningside was even accommodating enough to give some of our family members a private tour (not scheduled) when they were in town visiting months before the wedding. Our guests are still telling us how much fun our wedding was, how delicious the food one and how great the drinks were! Having Melissa there seriously calmed my nerves the day of and I knew things would run smoothly. I cannot recommend this venue enough and my husband and I will continue to reminisce about how perfect our day was for years to come.

Saturday Morning Wedding

We were so pleased with the results from the venue. The coordinator, Melissa, did a great job keeping things running smoothly. The food was very fresh and tasty, and the servers did a nice job taking care of our guests. Morningside provides such a spectacular view and ambiance, making the wedding and reception even more enjoyable. We highly recommend this venue.

Could Not Have Asked For A Better Day!

Our wedding at Morningside in September 2019 was absolutely perfect! The staff was super attentive to everything we needed both leading up to the day and actually on the day. I have been in numerous weddings and none were as seamless and organized as ours, with the help of our coordinator Melissa. My husband and I were really able to enjoy the day with our friends and family rather than stressing about all the small things. We fell in love with the event space the moment we set foot on the property and it did not disappoint on our day. Our guests were elated with the set up, the food, and the service all night. Our parents were also very pleased and are still raving about everything months later. There aren't enough words to thank everyone for making our day perfect!
