Couldn't be any better
We first met Stonegate Manor and Prudy, the wonderful woman who owns the venue with her husband, in February 2018 when my (now) husband and I were visiting our narrowed selection of venue options for our wedding from out of town. We knew instantly that Stonegate was the right venue for us despite the cold wet snow that covered most of the grounds during our visit--leaving our vision for a late summer wedding mostly in our imaginations. The grounds are lovely, but Prudy was the highlight of the tour and ultimately the reason why we chose Stonegate. Prudy and her team are not only professional and extremely responsive, more importantly, they are kind, understanding, and flexible. They took the time to get to know us and were willing to work with us at every step of the way; they do not approach their couples as another business transaction. We had a fantastic experience planning with them (even from out of town). Prudy sends regular email updates to all of her couples about recommended vendors and new additions/options available for free use or rent at Stonegate--and also on the day of the event. Our wedding was fantastic, and I can't imagine how our experience with Stonegate could have been any better. We celebrated our wedding ceremony offsite and hosted the reception at Stonegate, utilizing the Riverside Room and a tent outside.Sent on 11/17/2019
Stonegate Manor's reply:Wow, Megan! Thank you for your very kind words. I certainly had a great time getting to know you and Matthew through this last year. Keep up the great work in your professions...the world needs more people like the two of you! It was an honor to have you here.

Amazing Venue and Staff!
This is one hidden gem that I am so glad I came across. It was one of the first venues I saw online that caught my eye and the first one I saw in person. It had everything Grant and I could have wanted including an open Saturday in September! I met with Prudy during my first visit and she was so kind and full of helpful information. The grounds were perfect for us and the Fairy Garden was exactly what we had envisioned for an outdoor ceremony. Before the end of that day, I was working with her to secure our wedding date! Her and Tom were so quick to reply to all communication and sent out helpful tips along the way. Stonegate also has items that you can borrow for your day and ones you can rent through them which is very convenient--their vintage furniture collection is awesome! During the wedding planning process, Prudy announced they had a Month-of Coordinator that would be available for a limited amount of dates for the upcoming wedding months. Thankfully, Grant and I listened to his parents and hired Jen. We could not have done this without her!! Of all the decisions we made, that was by far the best one (after booking this venue of course!). She truly was a pleasure to work with and we knew our wedding day was in good hands with her. All the random "check-in" texts or emails from her were so thoughtful and she always made it known she was there for us with whatever questions we might have as we planned our perfect day. We had multiple family members and guests comment on her work ethic that day and how she had answers to any questions. We also have some great pictures that showcase this :) We would highly recommend not only the venue, but hiring Jen as well! Thank you to Prudy, Tom, and Jen for making our day so amazing. - Mr. and Mrs. CramerSent on 10/23/2019
Stonegate Manor's reply:You bring tears to my eyes, Brooke. Thank you, thank you for blessing us with your celebration! We loved it!!!❤️💕

The Perfect Gem
If I could give 10 stars it still would not say enough about Stonegate Manor and their team!! As soon as I pulled into Stonegate Manor to take a tour my husband and I instantly fell in love & we booked the same day! The grounds are absolutely breathtaking with 3 options to have your ceremony, we chose the Fairy Garden. The bridal cottage is beautiful with victorian furniture. And there is a stunning reception hall on the same grounds. Over the 1.5years of planning our wedding Prudy was at our fingertips and helped relieve so much stress that comes along with planning one of the most important day of your life!! She sends out information of vendors to make your planning easier and helps guide you in the right direction. Prudy’s response when you have questions or need anything is remarkable. During the day of our wedding Stonegate Manor team was there to help. Allison is one of the sweetest people I have met and was extremely helpful making sure all our wishes and hiccups were taken care of. I also had guest say that they could see in Jennifer’s eyes that she adores and has a passion for weddings. All of our guest commented to me multiple times that Stonegate was absolutely beautiful and perfect for a wedding! We can’t Thank the Stonegate Manor’s team enough for making our wedding perfect and exactly how we imagined it would be!!! Prudy & Tom we wish you both years of making other couples wedding dreams come true like ours did!Sent on 01/12/2020
Stonegate Manor's reply:Kelly and William, you continue to humble us with your graciousness. We wish we could turn back the clock and do it again and again! The planning was fun (at least our small part) and the end result was flawless. May you have all the happiness you deserve and more!

Stonegate is a beautiful venue with tons of history and charm. With three ceremony sites, an indoor reception space, and an outdoor tented space, this venue has tons of versatility! A great choice for couples looking for a romantic, vintage-inspired wedding! Oh-and they're pet friendly, which is pretty rare to find!
