From Our Couples

Absolutely Perfect

Our wedding was absolutely perfect in every way. The space was spectacular, the food was amazing, and the staff really made it all come together without a hitch. We cannot say enough about that amazing weekend and our guests still tell us it was the best wedding they had ever attended!

Lisa & Jordan

A Weekend for Us

We obviously loved the beauty of getting married right on the water with the beautiful sunset in the background of our reception! The food was amazing, as was the service. Mostly, we LOVED having our rehearsal and bridal party stay at the Rowland House. It felt like an entire weekend getaway to celebrate us!

Mike & Amy

Felt Like Family

Getting married at the Inns of Aurora took a lot of the stress out of the planning for us — the staff was helpful and responsive and made me and my family feel like family of the Inn. Not only are the grounds gorgeous, but the staff really made our wedding for us — both the wedding/room arrangements staff, and the concierge during the weekend.

Nita & Kai

The Perfect Wedding

Besides the stunning views, wonderful staff that helped execute our wedding perfectly, and the amazing food, the best part of getting married at the Inns of Aurora was the convenience of having the perfect wedding all in one spot. We were able to get ready at the E.B. Morgan House, walk to the venue at the Aurora Inn, and even had the after party at the Fargo across the street. This minimized the stress of worrying about our guests going from location to location—everything was right
where we needed it.
