With over a dozen properties to choose from throughout the storybook Village of Aurora, the Inns of Aurora offers the most versatile and timelessly elegant wedding venues in the Finger Lakes.
Our idyllic and unique resort allows for a range of options—from stunning lakeside ceremonies to casual welcome parties, memorable rehearsal dinners to extraordinary receptions—that will suit your style, your budget, and your guest list, whether you make Aurora all your own with our full-property package or arrange for an intimate ceremony in an elegant setting.
From the first arrival to the final day-after farewell, you and your guests will find everything they need within easy walking distance. Situated on Aurora’s charming Main Street, our five historic inns offer a total of 54 spacious guestrooms, each distinctly appointed with exceptional art and luxurious amenities. A variety of complimentary activities—from yoga classes to bicycles—will keep your guests entertained while you’re busy preparing for the big day.
Once the rest of your guests have arrived and checked into their rooms, gather them at E.B. Morgan House for a fun meet-and-greet before the big day. The home’s elegant mahogany porches provide shady spots to rest, while the sunny, lush lawn that stretches down to the lakeshore is perfect for games in milder weather. A selection of beverages and light hors d’oeuvres keeps it casual as guests get settled in.
The most magical day of your life deserves an unforgettable setting, and the lakeside lawn at the Aurora Inn is just such a place. This is the only wedding venue on Cayuga Lake with unobstructed sunset views and direct lake access, giving your event a picturesque backdrop of vibrant colors. We’ll arrange for a ceremony tent to provide a comfortable outdoor setting for your guests, regardless of the weather.

It’s time to enjoy your first full day as a married couple! Start the day off right by mingling with your guests on the lakeside veranda of 1833 Kitchen & Bar, where you can sip a mimosa or enjoy a Bloody Mary and tuck into a hearty brunch. Recount tales of last night’s adventures, share a final hug with the last of your departing guests, and sneak back to your room for a well-deserved nap.
