Best wedding venue!
We had our wedding at Stonehouse in December of 2018 and it beyond exceeded expectations. From the moment we met Bonnie over a year prior, we knew we were in good hands. She made the process so seamless and was beyond responsive to any of our inquiries. Our wedding theme was a winter wedding with a romantic vintage vibe and the atmosphere in the Lodge was perfect for just that. The food was also delicious, which is so important in a wedding venue. We received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of making Stonehouse our wedding venue.

Bonnie and team at stone house went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect! I can not say it enough that it wouldn’t have been as wonderful w/o the amazing staff. Bonnie always answered my emails quickly and would always meet me at the venue whenever I needed quick questions answered or if I just wanted to stop by. She made the process so easy, which was nice since wedding planning can be stressful ;) I am so pleased with the outcome and the amazing staff and beautiful venue!

Fall Wedding at the Lodge
When we first began our search for a venue for our fall 2018 wedding, it seemed impossible to find a place that ticked all the boxes on our wish list in the Northern Jersey area. Most of the places we found either required a minimum that was much higher than our anticipated guest list, or were only willing to provide a cookie cutter package to all their couples. After an exhausting search both online and in person, we finally found the Lodge at Stone House, and immediately fell in love with the modern, rustic charm of the property. Huge wrought iron chandeliers anchor the tall ceiling, and the large fireplace located at the end of the lodge provided the perfect backdrop for the reception space. I could go on and on about the different architectural details both inside the lodge and outdoors, but it was everything we were looking for - understated, contemporary, and warm.
Beyond the property itself, Stone House also set itself apart by having an incredible array of food and beverage options. This is definitely not your average wedding food. As mentioned earlier, we had a relatively small guest list (90 pp). Instead of imposing a minimum headcount, Stone House was beyond flexible and happy to let us utilize the minimum spend as credit and upgrade several of our food and beverage choices. Our guests could not stop raving about the food and service that they received.
We were fortunate enough to have Bonnie as our coordinator. From the first moment we set foot in the Stone House, Bonnie has been our main point of contact for anything venue-related. No question or request was too small. When we had trouble sourcing the right color linens to go with our decor, Bonnie even went out of her way to find a supplier that would be able to provide what we needed. She made us feel like we were the only couple she was working with. Bonnie, along with our maître d' Mercedes and attendant Stephanie, seamlessly coordinated with their staff and all our vendors on the day, and we could not have had a more special and memorable night because of them.
