    Best Day Ever

    Stonegate Manor is a gorgeous venue off the beaten path near a cute beach town in Southwest Michigan. My now husband and I chose Stonegate Manor because of the gorgeous Fairy Garden that we were married in. The Manor House is a beautiful antique house which is perfect for putting your wedding gown on and getting amazing photos. There is also the Bridal Cottage so you and your soon-to-be spouse can keep your distance. The Riverside Room is a perfect space to feel cozy and together with all of your loved ones. I cannot say enough about how perfect our day was. Prudy, the owner, worked diligently with us throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and helped ease all of our worries. If you're hesitating to book this venue, just do it. You will certainly have your happily ever after here, as we did!

    Oh, Sarah, we sure went through some COVID ups and downs with a few near misses but we did it!!!! What a beautiful day and you two were/are such a lovely couple. You never got rattled through any of it. I'm still looking through all the pictures. Can't imagine a more splendid day. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Exceptional Service, Quality, and Beauty Await with Stonegate Manor!

    At Stonegate Manor you will feel more like family than a business transaction. The owner, Prudy Nelson, is kind, professional, detail-oriented, communicative, and trustworthy. Every step of the way she was clear about our options and honest about anything that may have come up to change circumstances. We felt valued during our wedding planning and very cared for. This was ESPECIALLY appreciated during the Covid-19 times with the changing uncertainty.
    We had a unique opportunity to partake in the "Petite Wedding." Stonegate was agile in responding to Covid-19 restrictions by creating an inclusive package for 30 guests. Never in my wildest dreams could this have gone better. It was totally stress free - allowing for a few classy choices on flowers, cake, table coverings and centerpieces, the ceremony & reception sites, music, tables, yard games, and the use of the rare gem of a manor house in which to ready ourselves and bridal party.
    Details & getting it right, as well as constant - and accurate, worry-free communication are a niche for Stonegate. This level of service was exceptional for me, and it will be for you too! We were able to schedule a complete walkthrough of the gorgeous grounds, 2 possible ceremony sites, rain optional planned space, the interior of the fully restored Edwardian style Victorian manor house, carriage house, and reception hall. Words cannot describe the beauty and peace in this place. I will forever cherish my wedding day at Stonegate Manor because of the unique and timeless style it offered us.
    Prudy Nelson and team delivered flawlessly. We were also given documentation far beyond our expectation when it came to the contract language, amendments, and proof of payment. Use Prudy's preferred vendors for an even better experience. Kitty Lee Photography and Classic Catering were our choice vendors and did a phenomenal job as well. We would not have even known about them if it had not been for Stonegate's preferred vendor lists. This helped immensely as we planned out our wedding on the fly. Every part of our experience went so well.
    If you are looking for your dream wedding venue and have any doubt, just schedule the tour. You will be amazed by the stunning property, the care and concern of the owners, and the smooth process that awaits you during planning. Thank you Prudy, Tom, Alison, Stonegate Manor team - from the bottom of our hearts. We were grateful to be married at Stonegate.

    Stonegate Manor's reply:

    The feelings are indeed mutual, Clarisa! Sometimes couples just click and you and Jonathan fit perfectly into our family. And you are right, after all the months of planning, you are part of our family and we want nothing less for you than we would our own children. We will miss you...come back again and again for pictures and grow old with us!
