Whimsical + Elegant + Fun + Unique = Stonegate Manor & Gardens
Located within 10 minutes of 5 beautiful Lake Michigan beaches and the quaint small lake town of St. Joseph, Stonegate Manor & Gardens is Southwest Michigan’s hidden gem. The historic estate features the award-winning Fairy Garden, a whimsical and magical ceremony site nestled in the woods and surrounded by lush greenery. For those who wish a more classic look, cross the vintage white bridge and follow the old brick winding path to exchange vows in the vintage Pergola on the lawn.
Can’t decide between an indoor or an outdoor reception? Why not both?! The beautiful, air-conditioned Riverside Room opens through 3 sets of French doors directly into the 40’ x 60’ wedding tent creating a unique continuous indoor/outdoor space. You choose where you dine and dance. Inside under the sparkling chandeliers or outside beneath the tent canopy. Better yet…dine in comfort inside and then move the party outside after dinner! Dance the night away beneath the huge chandelier and twinkling string lights of the wedding tent.
Raining outside? No worries…stay dry while enjoying cocktails and conversation on the tented lawn. Move the lawn games under the tent and voila! What difference does rain make??!! Chilly? With clear tent sides and a few patio heaters your guests won’t even notice.
In addition to Indoor, Outdoor and the combined indoor/outdoor “Let’s Party” wedding and reception packages, Stonegate Manor & Gardens also offers all-inclusive “small wedding” packages. Choose a 2-hour Elopement for up to 16 guests or, if you are looking for something a bit more substantial, a 6-hour Petite Ceremony with Appetizer Reception.
And, there’s more…the restored 1847 Manor House, the old carriage house reborn as the Wedding Cottage, the gardens and grounds, beach pictures and, don’t forget, unparalleled customer service (75+ 5-star reviews this past year)…you will find everything you want at Stonegate Manor. Come celebrate with us!
