Morningside Castle





Masterpiece Caterers at Morningside Castle is one of those unique venues that only true insiders to New York know about. Step through the doors of Morningside Castle, away from the hustle and bustle of the street, to experience the venue’s old world charm. Hold your ceremony inside the gothic and stately chapel. Host your guests for cocktail hour in your own private outdoor courtyard, measuring an entire two city blocks. Stroll through its beautiful and quiet gardens and dance the night away in Morningside Castle’s two wood-paneled ballrooms. Tucked inside Union Theological Seminary on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Morningside Castle and its romantic Gothic architecture will provide a gorgeous and scenic backdrop for your wedding.
