Nearby One of the Best Nature Wedding Venues in Michigan

from beaches to shops & golfing

Stonegate Manor & Gardens & Gardens, St. Joseph, Michigan’s premier country estate venue, is located in Berrien County and along Michigan’s west coast. Southwest Michigan boasts some of the finest beaches in the world including Silver Beach, Tiscornia Beach, Rocky Gap County Park, Jean Klock Park and Weko Beach, just to name a few. The beach town of Saint Joseph, Michigan (Michigan’s Most Romantic City) is just a 10-minute drive from the estate. The downtown area is home to locally-owned galleries, lake-front restaurants and boutique shops.

Host to one of golf’s premier events, The Kitchenaid Senior PGA Championship, has become a destination for golfers throughout the Midwest. The tournament is hosted at Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Harbor Shores, just minutes away from Stonegate and a must-see for golf-enthusiasts.

beer & wine

Long known for growing first-class wine grapes, Berrien County/SW Michigan is highly regarded for its wines and wineries. Known as “One Trail, Unmatched Wineries – All in Southwest Michigan”, The Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail will be a delight for you and your guests.

Any beer drinkers in your group? Artisan breweries are popping up all over Berrien County and Southwest Michigan. As you drive through the countryside you may well catch sight of what looks like “telephone pole farms”. No, we don’t grow telephone poles here but we do grow acres and acres of hops… an essential ingredient in good brews. The poles support the heavy vines. Check out some of the fine craft breweries by visiting the “Beer-illiant Brewery Tour” sponsored by the Southwest Michigan Tourism Council.

Visit the SW MI Tourism Council for area event information, lodging, and other area resources.

“We were able to get a photo op at the beach in our casual clothes before the ceremony. Then when we arrived at Stonegate, there was plenty of space in the beautiful manor house for us to change into our ceremony outfits.” – Mary C.
