Shortly after retiring from their professions, an acquaintance suggested the then-for-sale Manor House and outbuildings would make an amazing, unique and beautiful wedding venue. The Nelsons agreed and Stonegate Manor & Gardens & Gardens began to take shape.
“I have no idea how we could have done our wedding without Prudy and the amazing people at Stonegate.” – Megan D.
With much love and care, along with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, the estate was transformed to its present-day beauty. The original Carriage House and stables have been converted into the beautiful Wedding Cottage. The old House of David Museum became the elegant Riverside Room. The Manor House pretty much stayed its same amazing self and is a wonderful place for family and close friends to gather as they help prepare for the big event. And, let’s not forget, the amazing pictures that can be taken with its jaw-dropping backgrounds.
As you drive past the namesake stone wall and gates, the newly restored Manor House, Carriage House (Wedding Cottage) and Riverside Room await you. Indoor spaces feature custom vintage characteristics such as original stained glass windows, marble fireplace, antique furnishings and decor, grand stairway, french doors, covered verandas, and more.
Come enjoy this enchanting & romantic retreat where friends and family can gather in a fairytale-like setting. The outdoor spaces include 27 acres of manicured lawns, vibrant flower gardens, lush forest, handcrafted pergola, trellis, and a Well-Wishing pond with a custom-built footbridge. All create beautiful options for your outdoor ceremony – from classic to woodsy, elegant to rustic with dashes of vintage and fun!
