I was very disappointed with this place. I read several reviews that noted that the quality of staff was poor; however, when I contacted them they informed me that they were aware of this issue and were working on it. I decided that the beauty of the grounds was worth a bit of hassle with the staff. I now regret this decision. They did change the wedding director a few months before my wedding and she was 100% better than the lady I was previously working with. However, I was not happy with the outcome of the wedding. The stress leading up to the event with the first wedding director (lack of response to any emails / calls) plus dealing with all of the changes that happened prior to the wedding (there were price increases) made this a very stressful event. To top it all off, the service during the reception was poor. I felt there was not enough staff to serve the number of my guest. There was also no one leading the coordination effort between ceremony to cocktail hour to reception – my mother and mother-in-law actually had to start going about and leading people to the next part of the night. When I signed I was under the impression there would be a day of coordinator. This just made it more stressful on everyone when we should have all been relaxed. The feeling of being taken care of – does not apply to this place as a wedding venue. If I had the chance to do this again; I would not pick the Vanlandingham for my wedding.

Our wedding is set for October 2015. At first at VanLandingham everything was smooth sailing, now our 2nd event coordinator has quit since January. The property is breath taking and decently priced. Just a little worried with how everything is going to come together since we are now 3 months out.

Where to begin... I worked with 4 different event planners in a matter of 6 months. I was told contradictory information by all of them. The person who ended up working on my wedding couldn't remember important details 3 days before ceremony. They charged for a bunch of things that we were not told about up front. Even my vendors were complaining about how awful they were. Don't use them!!

We had a wonderful event at the Morehead Inn. The night of January 2, 2015, our guests rented all 12 rooms of the Inn. Everyone enjoyed the accommodations. The dinners (Seared Filet with Brandy Mushroom Sauce and Citrus Salmon) were excellent. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Overall, it was the absolutely perfect venue for our event. Kaylie was very accommodating. At a couple of our meetings I felt she was rushed as she had to leave me to go to another responsibility. However, I did drop by the Inn unexpectedly, and she accommodated me and gave me additional time. The mistakes on our initial contract were corrected. We communicated a couple of times with the assistant at the VanLandingham Estate and found that communication to be unclear. A suggestion for Kaylie is to dress somewhat more professionally the night of the event. These were minor glitches. We truly appreciate what Kaylie did for us. Our guests had a wonderful experience. We are thrilled with the outcome, and we will have happy memories of our time at the Morehead Inn always. Thank you.

This is a fantastic venue! Everyone that attended our wedding keep saying how magical and perfect everything was and that is largely due to the staff and the beauty of the Van Landingham. I would definitely recommend this venue without question.

My wedding at The Vanlandingham Estate was absolutely amazing! I'm truly blown away by how well my special day went and how much time and effort the VLE staff took to make my day so wonderful. We worked with Kaylie and from the start she was very friendly, eager, and helpful. She was very responsive, even taking time to respond to questions or emails even during off business hours. Since wedding planning was new to us of course, we had lots of small detailed questions and she was very patient answering even the smallest annoying questions :)

The food was so delicious and we got lots of compliments, especially on the hors d'eurves!

The gardens are gorgeous and are the main attraction, though the house and all the guest rooms are so unique and inviting. I chose to stay the night on Friday night before the wedding so I was able to relax and enjoyed a massage and getting ready in my suite with very little logistics t he day of which I feel is key for a low stress day. On Sat night of our wedding we had booked all the rooms in the main house and it truly felt like we owned it for the evening. It made it feel that much more special.

Overall, the entire staff, especially Kaylie, was amazing and made us feel we were their only wedding.

If I had to do over I would choose VLE time and time and time again!

We booked the Van Landingham Estate well in advance before our wedding. This is a hidden gem and we first visited the place before reading reviews. When we looked at the beautiful estate and the stunning gardens, we fell in love with this venue. It's the perfect place to have both your reception and ceremony and keep things simple & elegant for your guests. Nothing else could compare. The reviews on this site actually made us nervous about signing a contract with them. But the venue manager at the time, Allison, reassured us that those issues were being worked on and we shouldn't face those troubles. By the time that we were ready to resume talks about the wedding, Cathy & Kaylie joined the team. We worked more closely with Kaylie and she is fantastic. Flexible, responsible and professional. We are very pleased with her attention during the process, despite her being new to the VLE. So if you love the venue, don't hesitate on signing the contract. You are in great hands. The venue is on the expensive side but the beauty of the place is unmatched in the Charlotte area. Our guests raved about how stunning the place is and how delicious the food was! Highly recommended!

As the mother of the bride I fell in love with the venue immediately. The grounds are amazing and everyone was a joy to work with. I cannot tell you how thankful I am that we were able to book the venue and have the opportunity that we did. It was stunning and the staff was so accommodating. I highly recommend both the Van Landingham Estate & the Moorehead Inn. Great Job on my little girls wedding!!!
