"Just a note to thank you for having everything ready for us the last couple of days. And, also to let you know that Rick took care of us flawlessly. I don’t think it has ever gone so smoothly. Everything from constant care with beverages to electronic needs to our lunches. I didn’t get his last name, but please pass on to whomever that we couldn’t have had a successful "

Linda Bjorkman

"Wow!  What an incrediable night we enjoyed for our wedding!!!  You were awesome to work with and I knew that it would be good at the Morehead Inn but it was so beyond my dreams!!  You handled everything with such professionalism and made me feel very confident in the event staff.  The entire staff that worked with us on Saturday, July 30th was wonderful.  The Inn was beautiful, setup great, and guests so happy.  The transition between wedding and reception was remarkable (I heard 7 minutes!).  While I did not get to eat at the reception, I heard that the food was so so good and looked beautiful. (I would love to have dinner at the Inn sometime to enjoy the food).  I heard raves about the food.  The entire evening was over-the-top!  You are wonderful and I would love the opportunity to work with you again!  Thank you for all you did to make that day the best of my life.  Rob and I are loving our life together!  I wanted to ask you about an event that Van is in charge of for Northside Christian Academy.  He is hosting his 25th high school reunion on October 1st.  There will be 25-30 adults in attendence.  He is looking for a very reasonable place and with reasonable prices for the dinner.  Is the library available? What kind of pricing can you do for him?  Have a wondeful day!  Thank you again for everything!!!"

Missy Johnston

"Just wanted to say hello and let you know that we are living "happily ever after"!  Our perfect wedding was immediately followed by what we feel is the perfect marriage.  We reviewed our wedding photos this weekend and wanted to thank you once again for being an absolute pleasure to work with.  You took great care of us and decreased our stress level tremendously.  We have recommended the VLE to several friends and hope to come out there again sometime for a picnic.  Hope your summer is going well...take care!"

Mike and Amanda Sellers

"I can't thank you enough for making Megan & Matt's wedding so beautiful and perfect Saturday.  Everything was wonderful.  I've heard nothing but praise from loads of people  that attended - the food was fabulous, the service outstanding, the house and gardens absolutely beautiful.  The list could go on.  You and your staff know what you are doing and you are very good at it!!!  You gave Megan a fairy tale wedding and I do thank you.  Unfortunately I only have one daughter so we don't have any more weddings to host, but I can assure you I will recommend without any hesitation or reservation The VanLandingham Estate to friends and family who may be planning such events in the future. Thanks again!"

Marty McKenzie

"I just wanted to let you and everyone who was involved in Lindsay and Jamie's wedding know how much we appreciated all the hard work that went into making it such a wonderful memory for the two of them.  I wanted Lindsay to have the wedding of her dreams, and that is exactly what she got.  I was worried about how we were going to put it together in the two hours we had following the previous wedding, but as promised, it all worked out.  A small army came out of the woodwork to make it all happen.  The food was wonderful---many compliments on how delicious everything was!  And could you believe the perfect weather? adine was extremely helpful, and a lot of fun, too!  The girls really enjoyed her being around.  But, most of all, Jack, thank you for all your help and assistance.  You reassured and kept me sane (most of the time).  I thought I was running around like a crazy person, but I think you had me beat!  At least......you knew what you were doing. I had many people tell me that they had no idea that a place like the VLE existed.  I'm sure with the beauty and excellence in service, that the word will be spread!!"

Jenny Williams

"Katie & I want to express or deepest appreciation and thanks for your warm, friendly, caring thoughts and your heartwarming company while we had the pleasure of staying at the Estate. You ladies made our trip most enjoyable and we look forward to our next visit. Until then!"

Mary & Katie

"Although you were very much missed on Saturday, Jack and Adam did a bang up job.  Just as I expected.  But this note is to single you out as one of the best project planners and mangers I have had the privilege of being coupled.  I could not have completed the task of the reception with such ease if you had not been there to tie all of the lose ends together.  You were friendly pleasant and so very helpful.. You even encouraged me when I was discouraged.  I do not know how to express my thanks to you for the wonderful day.  Everything was just perfect.  Everyone had a marvelous experience.  The Bride and Groom enjoyed themselves, because all of the details were handled with such ease and grace.  Your input was invaluable.  I feel like I made a friend.  When all was said and done, we felt as if for a few hours we had been transported to something akin to Neverland.  Expect to hear from me some day very soon and we will celebrate a successful partnership.  Thank you again for being such a god send.  You are a true asset to your company."

Beth Upchurch

"We can't say enough about the way we were treated at the Morehead Inn. You, Nicole, Ebony, and the rest of the staff were so very helpful to us from start to finish. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. But it was everyone's attitude that struck us as amazing .... especially as the day had its share of  unexpected situations and was not going smoothly before we got to the Morehead. Niclole took over at that point and from there we were treated so kindly that the day and evening became a delight. Please tell all the staff, those we met and those we didn't get to see, that Ken and I, Andy and Jenny and our family and friends had a wonderful time thanks to them. We'd like to stop by to see you all one day just to say hello. "

Mary Ellen

"Just a quick note to THANK YOU for all your help this past Saturday with the Segura reception.  Sometimes, folks just need to be pulled along to get them to do things I guess.  You allowing the first dances on the patio was a FANTASTIC touch- the guests really enjoyed it and the bride and groom commented at the end of the night how romantic it was. You proved AGAIN, why the VanLandingham and the Morehead Inn are THE place to have your special events- you take such good care of everyone involved!"

Bill the DJ

"I just wanted to thank you very much for helping Spruce and I have such a special wedding day.  Everything was perfect.  You are very good at what you do.  People can’t stop bragging about what a beautiful wedding and ceremony it was.  I couldn’t have done it without you.  You made everything run smoothly at the wedding and I didn’t have to worry about a thing.  It was the wedding that I have always dreamed of having.  It was a pleasure working with you."

"I want to thank the staff of the VanLandingham Estate.  Our daughter's wedding was spectacular. Twenty one years ago my wife and I had our wedding at the Morehead Inn.  Several years ago my niece had her wedding at the Morehead Inn.  My daughter liked the VanLandingham Estate.  Julie was perfect. She was fun to work with and  in the last days before the wedding totally attentive.  On the day of the wedding, she a true gem. She was  cool, responded to every request of parents, bride and groom and quests. She found candles that were better than the ones  I brought, pins to keep flowers together, and made sure  everything went well. She was always engaged in our wedding plans and a Jewish wedding. She is an asset to the  Inn and Estate.  My daughter told us that she had the "wedding that I wanted".  You have helped give us a family event that will always be remembered."

Allen B. Saxe

"We simply cannot thank you enough for being our “rock” and our friend during all the planning and details of our wedding.  You assured us at every point, so we knew we never had to be concerned about even the most minor detail.  We hoped to find something for you in addition to the check in Italy, but believe it or not, that unique and amazing country simply didn’t show us a treasure worth bringing home to you that could possible express our gratitude.  You’re amazing!!"

Kelly and Marcy

"Just a note to thank you again for all you did to make Laura and Jon’s day even more special. You and all your staff could not have been more delightful to work with and we appreciate all you did on our behalf. On a apersonal note-we loved working with you, the ease and grace with which you did your job made us all more comfortable.  All the best to you in the future."

Ann VanDyke

"Luis and I have returned froma fantastic honeymoon in Italy and are settling into a “normal” life.  Last month seems like a wonderful whirlwind of events.  It was bittersweet to see it all come to an end, but Luis and I are now enjoying the fun, newness, and excitement of learning to live as husband and wife.  Marriage adds a certain sweetness even to everyday routines. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping me with my reception at VanLandingham.  You were always so available, proffesional and enthusiastic.  You really gave me a very low-sressed experience of planning a wedding. I will be happy happy to recommend VanLandingham to future brides.  I will always remember your help and kindness during this important time."

Carey Hagler Moreno

"I just feel I need to properly thank you for all you did to make Kelly and Troy’s wedding the perfect day.  I had heard that you run a “tight ship” and I saw that first hand on Saturday.  Your whole staff worked quickly and efficiently behind the scenes, always anticipating our needs.  When you left I felt very good in Adam’s capable care. I will never forget how quickly you always answered my emails (except for one – Ha!) and I’ll never forget the genuine concerned in your face (and Savannah’s) the day we came out to see the tent.  I know you both would have done anything at that point to make things work.  But in the end, Kelly got her dream wedding in exactly the location she wanted.  We will never forget that day, nor will we forget you.  Thank you from myself, Tom and Mr. and Mrs. Gallo!! p.s. Thanks also to Savannah for her sweet words to me the morning of the wedding.  She will be a genuine asset to the VanLandingham."

Jackie Lawing

"Cliff and I cannot thank you enough for all your help with our rehearsal dinner.  You and everyone at the Morehead Inn could not have been more fun to work with.  The food and setting was absolutely perfect and we really appreciate all of your hard work and dedication.  We will absolutely recommend the Morehead Inn to others and if we ever plan another dinner party, you will be our first call.  Thank you again!"

Katherine Coley

"Just a note to thank you for all you did for us to make Carrie & Jason’s wedding reception a wonderful day to remember.  Family and friends had a great time and were so impressed by everything; the facility, the food, the professionalism of you and the Morehead Inn staff.  We wouldn’t change a thing.  It was so special."

Vickie and Jerry Porter

"Thank you for all your help in making Carmen’s wedding day a success. Your professionalism made it seem like a piece of cake.  Your help was invaluable.  Even the weather held out for us.  I can’t thank you enough."

Rose Wooten

"We have returned from our short “vacation” to Charlotte and feel so revived!  What a lovely setting the Inn provides for R&R and how pampered one feels as soon as one enters the home. From the continually lit fireplaces to the luxurious bedding, we felt as though we were guests in a fine English Manor.  The breakfast was delicious and prepared with such loving detail and expertise!  It carried us through the day until a late lunch on the way back to Statesboro.  our maps, suggestions and information about the 4th Ward helped us to easily navigate an enjoyable morning in Uptown Charlotte.  A very exceptional city and one we plan to visit again.  Thank you again for your hospitality and we will have fond memories to sustain during the cold weeks ahead! We hope to see you again soon."

Steve and Debra Chester

"Thank you Julie. I thought the whole evening was beautiful. It went by without a hitch, thanks to you and the wonderful staff at the VanLandingham. I really appreciate how thorough you were to the last detail. I felt more like a guest than a host. Emily and Vlad will have nothing but the fondest of memories. My family and friends had a wonderful time and they loved the ambiance of the VanLandingham. The vendors you recommended were fabulous. I can not think of one detail I would change. Best to you Julie and thank you again."

Jane Schmidt


"Just a quick note of thanks for our family’s lovely luncheon Sun.  From the minute we arrived in the beautiful courtyard with its inviting drink table til the last bite of crème brulee was scraped from the dish, everything was perfect.  Y’all have  hospitality down pat, and you provided a marvelous occasion for us.  Please convey my appreciation to all your staff.  Each one, the ones we saw and the ones behind the scenes, did a great job, and we just want to find an occasion to come again!  Have a wonderful summer."


"Words just can't express how amazing our wedding celebration was to us.  Friends and family can't stop raving about how beautiful everything was.  I think people always say this but I actually believe them!  From the day that Mom and I met with you at the Morehead, we knew we had made the right decision.  
You took care of us so wonderfully and any stress that I had completely went away when we walked down those beautiful stairs to such a perfect reception.  It couldn't have been more perfectly executed - you and your staff were amazing and I so appreciate everything that y'all did to make our evening so wonderful. I loved Jeff's idea of the Morehead keeping our cake topper and having us come back to the Inn for our first anniversary.  You can go ahead and book us for that weekend because we'll certainly be back! Thank you so much for everything.  There will forever be a special place in my heart when you will always be."

J. Looney

"Thanks so much for everything you did to help make our wedding so wonderful..  From your organized list of vendors & services to your responsiveness to every one of my requests -- our experience could not have been better.   We had several guests comment that our wedding was one of the most beautiful they had ever been to..   that sure was a nice comment for something we planned in just a short 4 months..!!!      We really appreciate all you and the staff of the Morehead did!  Please pass my comments and appreciation on to Savannah as well - she was  most helpful during our rehearsal and ceremony!!"
