★★★★★ Fairy Tale Wedding We had our wedding at Stonegate on June 8, 2019. The whole experience working with the staff was amazing. They are all so friendly and professional. Their response time to emails was really quick. We chose the Fairy Garden for the ceremony. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting. The Garden was lush and green and completely romantic. For the reception we used the lawn and Riverside Room. The Riverside Room is charming and full of antique touches that make the venue so unique. There is a bridal cottage and Manor House you can rent for the day to get ready in - which we did. The Manor House is this Victorian beauty that is a perfect backdrop for pictures. The whole property is just gorgeous and I don't think you can find anything else like it. Our wedding was perfect and yours will be, too!

★★★★★ Stonegate’s elegance and professionalism is top drawer and key to the success of what was a gorgeous ceremony, delicious dinner and desserts, as well as a blast dancing and playing lawn games throughout the evening.

They provided guidance, consulting and coaching throughout the entire process. We are not local and they helped us secure all our vendor. The Month of Coordinator, Jen is amazing and we cannot imagine how we would have managed pulling everything together without her, as well as the owners Prudy and Tom.

★★★★★ Stonegate was one of the first and best decisions we made when planning our wedding! From the minute we reached out to Prudy to schedule a visit to the night of the wedding, she was super responsive and easy to communicate with. She was always quick to answer any questions we had to make sure we felt totally comfortable with how our big day was shaping up. We also used several items from both the Stonegate boutique and rental list, which was a very easy process. We were absolutely blown away by the grounds when we visited, and I still hear from guests about how beautiful the setting was. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect place to get married!

★★★★★ From the very beginning Prudy was wonderful to work with and quick in her responses to any inquires we had. We planned everything from out of town & made multiple requests to visit the venue. Prudy was always very accommodating. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful! The carriage house is perfect to get ready in and stay separate from the guys and guests that may arrive early. It is spacious and allows for plenty of room for your hair and makeup team. The Manor House offers some unique opportunities for photos and a great place for family members & groomsmen to wait. The fairy garden provides the perfect shady spot to exchange your vows. The seating website Tom & Prudy use allows you to easily envision what your reception hall will look like, and they set it up & break down all the tables and chairs. Prudy also has an attic full of decorations you can borrow.

Stonegate Manor provides the perfect spot for an elegant wedding. We loved every minute of our ceremony and reception despite the fact that it was miserably hot the day of our wedding. Tom and Prudy worked tirelessly through the heat to make sure ceremony chairs were set up and everything was running smoothly in the reception hall.

I would give Stonegate Manor 10 stars if the option was available. It is a beautiful location with wonderful amenities. Tom & Prudy are great people to work with. They make sure they understand your vision and are in constant contact to ensure everything runs smoothly.

★★★★★ Jennifer Marren Wedding Coordinator for Stonegate Manor in Benton Harbor MI is one of the most friendly and hardworking wedding professionals I have met in a long time. I officiated Alyssa and Matt Sanger's wedding ceremony at this location on Saturday and can tell you that every detail was spot on because of her team's effort. If you are in the hunt for a beautiful place to celebrate your love, contact Jennifer at info@stonegatemanorevents.com.

★★★★★ From start to finish, working with Prudy and Tom at Stonegate Manor was the exact experience I was hoping for when we started planning out wedding. Not only was the property beautiful and perfect for our plans, but Prudy was warm and welcoming from the time we set foot at the venue. Her personal touch was exactly what we were looking for and set Stonegate apart from other venues we visited.

Jenny; July, 2019

★★★★★ When my wife and I started looking for venues in Western Michigan, Stonegate Manor was the first one we saw, and fell in love immediately. In the following four months we visited at least a dozen other venues, but none compared to Stonegate manor. Prudy, Jen, Tom, and the entire staff at Stonegate Manor made our day amazing and stress free. It rained that day, but they were all ready with a backup plan that ended up being more beautiful that I could have ever imagined.

Kaamil; July, 2019

★★★★★ Stonegate did an excellent job for our wedding. The venue is breathtaking and the service that Prudy and Tom provided was excellent. I would recommend this venue to any couple who want to have a beautiful venue for there wedding!!

Mitchell; July, 2019

★★★★★ Magical June wedding weekend! My bride and I chose this venue because of the beautiful ceremony space - the fairy garden - and the day turned out better than we could have imagined. Prudy and her husband Tom the owners were excellent to work with. They were easy going and made every accommodation they had the ability to make. The price is also great comparative to other venues in the area. Believe me, we visited them all. I highly recommend stonegate manor, CK catering, and stalks and stems florists. They all made such a great day.

Alex; July, 2019

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor was the perfect setting for our October 2018 wedding. The grounds are gorgeous, and the fall woods surrounding the fairy garden were the most amazing background for our ceremony. Prudy and her team were beyond accommodating, kindly answering a slew of questions leading up to the day, and even allowing us some extra decorating time because we were an all DIY wedding. We brought a whole trailer of things, even our own fireplace, and Prudy and her team took it all in stride, constantly kind and gracious. The grounds and the house offer so many locations for special moments and photographs. We did a no-look first look in the house that I will cherish the beautiful images from. The house also gave us a great spot to sign our license and take a moment with each other before beginning the party.



★★★★★ I loved that Stonegate felt like the best of bost worlds: an intimate country estate, and an enchanted woods straight out of a fairy tale. Thank you so much, Prudy. Stonegate Manor was our first wedding planning choice, and we couldn't have picked a more beautiful, kind, peaceful venue.

Andrew; November, 2018

★★★★★ My daughter was married at Stonegate Manor this fall and we are so thankful that we found this venue and the wonderful people who manage it. The house and grounds are picture perfect, with multiple photo opportunities so all the photography can take place right there. The reception hall worked perfectly for our small gathering of around 100. But the most outstanding thing about Stonegate is the way that Prudy, the owner, welcomes and works with the clients. Prudy goes out of her way to accommodate and assist her couples in having the best day possible, with warmth and good humor that puts you at ease and assures you that all will be well. In addition, I don't think you could find another venue where the owner and staff exhibited more integrity and professionalism...things that we highly respect and value. We definitely recommend Stonegate for anyone planning a wedding or other event.

This venue is beautiful and our wedding was so special thanks to Stonegate Manor. They were super helpful from day one!

Anna; November, 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor was the perfect venue to host my wedding ceremony and reception. Prudy is amazing to work with, she is attentive, fun, kind, helpful and super accomodating for whatever you may need. Our day was incredible because of the work they do here!

Ashley; November, 2018

★★★★★ Prudy was an absolute dream to work with. I often referred to her as my wedding fairy godmother. She is professional and also extremely kind. She never made me feel like I was bothering her with any of my questions. I would definitely recommend Stonegate Manor to anyone who wants a beautiful and magical wedding!

Barbra; October, 2018

★★★★★ I’m not sure where to even begin-we had our wedding this past weekend at Stonegate and it was everything we could’ve ever asked for and so much more. Our ceremony spot, the fairy garden, was breathtaking. The grounds in general were just beautiful. The manor house and the bridal cottage were the perfect spots for our wedding party to get ready and chill in. You will never find kinder and more accommodating wedding venue owners than Prudy and Tom. They had so much to offer us at Stonegate but also allowed us to bring in some outside rentals for some extra touches. They were so prompt in all our communication and put so much effort into our day. If you’re looking for a charming and unique venue with the perfect mixture of outdoor and indoor space, you’ll find all of that and beyond it at Stonegate!

Katherine; October, 2018

★★★★★ The venue sets the tone for the wedding, and I feel like I really hit it out of the park with mine. Stonegate is the absolute perfect wedding venue. I first fell in love with photos, and after meeting Prudy and visiting, I was positive it was the right place. Prudy was excellent to communication with throughout the whole planning process...she was always kind, responsive, and happy to help. The list of items they have in hand to borrow was perfect..it saved a lot of hassle! The bridal cottage was the perfect getting ready day of spot, and had the perfect set up for on site hair and makeup, and was even pretty enough to be its own photo op. I always wanted a magic garden type wedding, and this was absolutely achieved...from the twinkling lights to the forest of trees, the venue was so magical. We had our wedding in Benton harbor solely for the venue, and multiple guests told us they understood why! If you are on the fence, do yourself a favor and reach out to Prudy.

Leah; October, 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor is a hidden gem which we were fortunate to discover when searching for a wedding venue in southwest Michigan. The owners, Prudy and Tom, are prompt, professional, and kind. From the outset, they unhesitatingly accommodated all of our needs. For out-of-state couples like us, consistent communication with Prudy and the list of suggested vendors she provided helped us plan our wedding seamlessly.
The grounds are expansive and breathtakingly beautiful. The charming Bridal Cottage and exquisite Manor Home were perfect places where we primped, dressed, and relaxed before the wedding. We, along with our family and guests, loved the combination of the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour followed by the climate-controlled Riverside Room for the reception. In fact, our guests were so impressed by Stonegate Manor that they called and sent text messages to us for days after the wedding lauding our selection of such a unique, elegant, and stunning venue for our wedding. We couldn't agree with them more. Our wedding day was perfect, and we owe that in large part to our choosing Stonegate Manor as the venue.
If you're looking for a spectacular venue in southwest Michigan with owners who will work with you to ensure that your wedding day (or other event) is absolutely perfect, Stonegate Manor is the perfect place for you. We highly recommend it and hope for the opportunity to attend another event here as guests sometime in the future.

Alex; October, 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate is a truly beautiful venue and a hidden gem in Southwest Michigan! The venue looks just like the pictures and makes for a truly memorable event. I had my wedding in the fairy garden and it was perfect. Prudy is so helpful and makes sure you are always in the loop on what's going on, on the ground or items she may have for rent. She is attentive and responsive to any questions you may have and on the day of your wedding she is there making sure that all your vendors know where to go and things are shaping up to what you would expect your day would be. I am so happy I found this place!

Evelyn; October, 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor was everything I hoped and dreamed for my wedding. It is the most beautiful setting for ceremony, cocktails, and reception. If I had to choose a venue over again, I would no doubt choose Stonegate. I feel like seeing it in person beforehand and even pictures or other weddings do not do it justice.

Prudy was the best person to work with. She was so responsive and so helpful every single step of the way. She was so patient with all of my questions and was so helpful and accommodating with all of our requests, visits, and needs. She provided a very helpful list of recommended vendors, which gave us such a good place to start considering we did not know anyone in the area. I truly couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with!

Sara; September, 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor is utterly breathtaking from the moment you drive in. We knew immediately that this venue was "the one" (after a very, very long search through all of SW Michigan). The grounds and reception space are a beautiful blank slate to create your dream wedding. The fairy garden truly looks like it is taken from a fairytale. The estate is so private and elegant-a very timeless wedding experience. Prudy and Tom, the proprietors of Stonegate, go above and beyond to ensure a very seamless experience while planning and, ultimately, executing your wedding vision. They are very hands on and have great relationships with all of the vendors in the area that help to make your day magical. If you're in the market for the most beautiful venue within a 100 mile radius of SW Michigan, I would strongly encourage you to visit Stonegate Manor and envision your dream wedding. Happy planning! :)

Ann; September, 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor is absolutely magical, I can't think of a word that would describe it better! I fell in love with it immediately and I honestly cannot imagine marrying my best friend at a better place.

From the very beginning they were extremely nice, timely, and available. Prudy (and Tom and the rest of their team) were always available to answer any questions, and they have so much wedding knowledge and information to share. Prudy even tried to problem solve a last minute mix up for us that had absolutely nothing to do with the venue. It's obvious that they truly care about all the couples who get married at their venue, which makes it even more special. All of our friends and family were amazed at how beautiful everything was. I appreciated all the options that they have; 2 outdoor options to get married, an indoor reception area, a perfectly vintage bridal cottage to get ready in, and a huge yard for games and just hanging out. I seriously cannot say enough good things! Conor and I would absolutely recommend Stonegate Manor to anyone who is looking to get married in southwest MI and we will never forget how wonderful our day was there.

Layne; September, 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor was the perfect venue for my daughter’s fairytale wedding. Prudy and Tom were amazing with their attention to detail and making sure everything was pristine in a comfortable, accommodating manner. I highly recommend this venue.

Tricia; August, 2018

★★★★★ Where to start! We had never been to St. Joe and planned our wedding from across the country. We would never have been able to do this without Prudy and Tom at Stonegate. Prudy spent an hour with us as we decided on venue. She recommended excellent catering, floral and wedding planner options. She was so quick and responsive through the entire wedding process, always going above and beyond to help us in planning. When the amazing day arrived, my husband and I were absolutely awestruck at how beautiful the venue was. The fairy garden ceremony felt like we were getting married in a Disney Cinderella garden. Our loved ones enjoyed mingling between outside with lawn games and tearing up the dance floor inside. Our day was truly beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you so much to Tom and Prudy Stongegate for such an amazing day.

Nicole; August, 2018

★★★★★ Prudy and Tom are wonderful to work with. When we needed anything they were there. We were able to visit the location several times as part of our preparation. The venu is magnificent. The grounds are beautiful. The Hall is spacious and opens up to the grounds in such a way that it really ties the indoors to the outdoors. We rented the Manor home for my children and that really helped the preparations. All our guests were raving about how wonderful the place is. We had a wonderful wedding and would highly recommend Stone Gate Manor.

Paul; July, 2018

★★★★★ Wow!! No words to describe how perfect Stonegate Manor was for our big day! From start to finish, it was wonderful! Due to some unexpected circumstances, there was a bit of last minute stress surrounding the wedding date – but Prudy was there every step of the way to ensure that all was in place and nothing forgotten. What a TRUE GEM she is!! The venue is GORGEOUS and well maintained. We love that it had very clean and spacious restrooms in the reception hall. This might not seem like a big deal, but we looked at so many venues that were lacking in this area. Not only were WE taken care of, but so were our guests. Tom and Prudy seriously thought of everything! The bridal party was greeted in the bridal cottage with a bottle of wine and some chocolates. Besides the ample plug-ins for curling wands, large mirrors, cool air conditioned space, tables and chairs, refrigerator, antique furniture (perfect for photo ops!!), what else could we have asked for? In short, the bride and her girls were able to enjoy some much needed pampering during the hours leading up to the ceremony. It’s the little touches that make the most of a big day! 🙂 I could go on and on…but seriously, if you’re looking for that perfect place for your wedding (or ANY event), head to Stonegate Manor! I cannot recommend enough!

Katie; July 2018

★★★★★ We had the most wonderful time at Stonegate Manor for our wedding in late June 2018. Working with Prudy and Tom in the run up to the event itself was a breeze. Any emails and questions were answered and replied to very promptly and they genuinely want your day to be super special. We had zero issues with the planning and organizing of the wedding. Stonegate itself is stunning. We booked our wedding in December and had to use our imagination as to what it would look like in summer and we were not disappointed. I stopped by the venue a few times in the run up to our wedding date to see how it was coming along into Spring and early summer and it really took my breath away. The grounds and the buildings are in exceptional condition, evidently very well cared for and maintained. The Manor House itself is a piece of history and a work of art. Our wedding photos taken here were just beautiful. The Bridal Cottage was the most perfect place to get ready beforehand. So elegant and cute and a short walk to the Fairy Garden and Riverside Room. All our vendors were excellent and most had worked at Stonegate before and thoroughly enjoyed doing events there. It was my photographer’s first time at Stonegate and I know she wants to go back again to do further shoots. We could not have asked for a better venue – private, intimate, beautiful gardens, great reception room and bathrooms and the helpfulness of Tom and Prudy. My biggest piece of advice is go for a look around and imagine your dream wedding – we did and our wedding was magical.

Nicole; July 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor is a beautiful venue with amazingly friendly staff. As a photographer, my job is always infinitely easier with a gorgeous venue like this one. From the bridal suite to the main house to the reception hall, I was continually blown away by how pristine the venue is. And we haven’t even talked about the grounds! The outdoor ceremony space is the stuff of dreams and there are so many amazing nooks and crannies for photos all over. This would be a great venue for any couple to tie the knot!

Cait; July 2018

★★★★★ Great location and even better service. So many amazing spots to take pictures, what a lovely and accommodating venue!

Jennifer, July 2018

★★★★★ We were just married there a few days ago and I cannot tell you how happy we were with how everything worked out! Stonegate Manor was the first and very best choice we could ever have made. We knew we wanted something different than a barn and we went to the right place! We fell in love with this venue when we pulled into the drive last year. It is amazing with that gorgeous big yellow Manor House, the out buildings, the stone fence and the stone gates. Stunning! It just got better after that. My wife loved the Bridal Cottage where she and her ladies got ready. I can’t wait to see the pictures we had taken on that really pretty rose couch! We also had our first look on the porch and that was fantastic. We chose the Fairy Garden because it is just so secluded and unique. It was fantastic! So very, very beautiful and very natural like we envisioned. We loved having all the outdoor space to spread out and have fun. Cocktails, yard games and even some of the dancing spilled out onto the lawn! The day was perfect so we didn’t need the air or the heat but it was wonderful knowing it was available in the Riverside Room just in case. My wife loved the chandeliers and the other lighting in the Room. Very beautiful. There are so many other things to talk about but I won’t go on and on. You have to check it out for yourselves. The Bridge, the pond, the Pergola, it’s all so unique and makes it a perfect place to have a wedding.

Chris, June 2018

★★★★★ We started off looking for a venue close to the beach and had decided against those because we found this quiet beautiful farm house. It was everything we desired. Everyone, especially Prudy was amazing to deal with. We planned everything from another state and everything went off without a hitch. This venue was very beautiful and we had an amazing party especially including the expansive lawn space. We had lights, tables, corn hole, jenga, and a fire pit outside. There’s was something for everyone to do, even the kiddos. The pictures turned out amazing at this venue. Can’t say enough good things about this venue.

Lauren; June 2018

★★★★★ One of my favorite places in all of Southwest Michigan! Prudy is wonderful and goes above and beyond to make every bride’s dream come true. Everything about Stonegate Manor is impeccable and beyond gorgeous!

Kitty; June 2018

★★★★★ Had the honor of photographing The Carr Wedding at Stonegate Manor. If photography/videography is important to you look no further than Stonegate Manor. Prudy and her gnomes have put so much into creating the perfect location for your special day. Everyone was a huge fan of the turf lawn in the fairy garden. Despite the rain, we still were able to capture perfect photographs for the Bride & Groom.

Katie; June 2018

★★★★★ An absolutely beautiful setting for special events. The owners are honest and accommodating; they understand the importance of making the day special for you! Private peaceful setting with all the lovely details

Edie; June 2018

★★★★★ My husband and I were married at Stonegate Manor last Fall. We also had our reception there. We could not have been happier! As the evening progressed, it got a bit cooler so we really appreciated the heat in the Riverside Room. But, it wasn’t so cold that our guests weren’t able to have a great time out on the lawn with the games the owners provided! What fun! We had the small carved bar on the porch to use for beer and wine, cocktail tables on the lawn and it was great! I felt like a Princess getting ready in the Bridal Cottage. The beautiful vintage furniture made for some great pictures! The Fairy Garden was AMAZING!!!! Surrounded by trees with the leaves changing colors, it was drop dead gorgeous. People are still talking about it. Maybe even more so than my dress! It is a very, very magical place and we are so grateful we were able to start our married lives there. My extended family hung out in the Manor House. What a great option! They had a great time, my Mom got ready there and we were able to use it for some awesome pictures after the wedding. What a great bonus it is to have that on the property! Plus, it just makes the property in general picture perfect. We can’t say enough good things about Stonegate Manor or the owners, Tom and Prudy. They were so helpful every step of the way during the planning process and the big day. Thank you!!!

Sue; May 2018

★★★★★ We at Jenny and Jason Photography, LLC absolutely love the Stonegate Manor! We just photographed wedding photos here earlier this month (May, 2018) and the outdoor wedding ceremony site was gorgeous! It’s amazing that not only is there so much lush outdoor space to work with, but also gorgeous indoor spaces from the bridal suite to manor itself to the reception indoor location. Everything is decorated impeccably with gorgeous victorian accents and beautiful furniture which made photographing prep photos, portraits, cake cutting, etc. a dream.

Also, everything is so nearby that we didn’t worry about how long it’d take to get to any portrait location after the ceremony which is always a huge plus about having everything within a small walking distance. Having the preparation spot next to the ceremony next to the reception location is such a rarity and so helpful for us wedding photographers! Normally we spend at least over an hour within a wedding day trying to get from the hotel prep spot to the ceremony location to the portrait location(s) to the reception location which really adds up and cuts into the time we’re actually photographing!

Owner Prudy was fantastic to work with and is so helpful with everything. We can’t say enough great things about Stonegate and its owners! They make everything run wonderfully smoothly and the space itself makes the work of the day easy and more enjoyable!

Jenny; May 2018

★★★★★ The attention to detail makes this historic venue very unique! The grounds are so gorgeous, including the adorable bridal cottage! It makes for amazing backdrops in photographs from getting ready, to the ceremony, to celebrating in the reception hall.

Prudy and Tom are so helpful and pleasant to work with! They work very hard to accommodate all your needs and help personalize your event to your specific likings. They are prompt communicators, and make you feel at ease during your whole planning experience and on your special day! Highly recommend this unforgettable venue!

Shannon; March 2018

★★★★★ If you are looking for a venue that speaks of beauty, elegance and fine detail, with whispers of a past not forgotten, look no further than Stonegate Manor. In a day and time when everything seems so fast paced, why settle for a mediocre wedding when you can experience a timeless wedding surrounded by the beauty of nature and elegance. Every conceivable detail is taken to ensure that the most special day of your life will be remembered in the beauty and grace that such a day warrants. Don’t settle for the mediocrity that so many offer when you can truly experience the sublime that awaits for you at Stonegate Manor, where time stands still just for you.

Sharon; March 2018

★★★★★ Get ready to fall in love all over again!

If your dream wedding is to be held in a boring ol reception hall, then scroll on my friend, this isn’t the place for you. But if you envision your dream wedding to be held in a romantic Fairy Garden, surrounded by your friends and family, look no further!

Stonegate Manor is hands down the most beautiful historic wedding venue that southwest Michigan has to offer. Surrounded by several acres of sweeping green lawns and woods, SGM offers two ceremony sites, an indoor (with a/c) reception hall or option to have your reception outdoors under a tent or the stars, and the historic Manor House and romantic Wedding Cottage for the wedding party to get ready in.

And the photo opportunities are endless!!!!

I just can’t say enough about my experience here and with SGM’s owners, Prudy and her husband Tom. Every single bride that I know that has seen SGM has wanted to have their wedding there. I want to have my wedding there!

Anji; January 2018

★★★★★ I don’t even know where to begin! Most of the way through my wedding planning process, my husbands orders had changed and we needed to move our wedding up very quickly. Stonegate Manor showed up on a search that we did to check wedding venues in the area, and Prudy told us that we could come and see the venue that afternoon. Stonegate Manor is an absolutely gorgeous venue, that I fell in love with as soon as we pulled up to walk around. Prudy and Tom are amazing people, and allowed us to have our wedding at their venue with severely short notice. They were so accommodating to my husband and I and they did an amazing job with everything our short time, weather (SNOW) and lives could throw at them. Our wedding went so smoothly, and I can’t thank Prudy and Tom enough for all of the amazing work that they did for us. I cannot say enough good things about Stonegate, and I would recommend this absolutely GORGEOUS venue to anyone that needs an amazing event space run by the best people!

Alexandra, December 2017

★★★★★ We are so grateful to Stonegate Manor for making our day perfect. We love the natural feel of the space – the trees, the gardens, the lawn. Our guests had plenty of room to roam. The lawn games that Prudy and Tom provided were so much fun. We didn’t think people were going to come in for dinner! You can tell a lot of effort and love was put into making this a lovely space. The vintage items are exquisite and unique. The vendors that Prudy suggested did a great job! Loved them all. It was just a great experience all in all and we are thrilled we found Stonegate Manor. We just happened to see it on google as we were leaving another wedding venue!

Susan; November 2017

★★★★★ We absolutely LOVE Stonegate Manor. It is just so beautiful and unlike any of the other venues we looked at in the area. There is just so much space! Lots and lots of lawn to mingle and play games plus a great indoor, air-conditioned space which is elegant with just enough vintage touches to make it unique. The owners, Tom and Prudy, have bent over backwards to answer our questions and do everything in their power to make our wedding day as special as can be. They are extremely flexible and customer friendly. Prudy has such a great selection of items she let us borrow to add those special little details to our reception. I felt like I could create a Pinterest-worthy display without spending a dime! We just cannot recommend Stonegate Manor highly enough. We have heard some real horror stories about other venues and feel we were incredibly blessed to have stumbled upon this hidden gem!

Susan; November 2017

★★★★★ We are so thrilled to have discovered Stonegate Manor. It was the perfect venue for us. We wanted someplace where we and our guests could have fun….play games, mingle outside, enjoy nature…and yet still have all the amenities (including air-conditioning!!!!) that an elegant venue would have. Well, we hit the jackpot! There is plenty of room to roam at Stonegate. It’s really a huge space! We had a hard time deciding between the different ceremony sites but ultimately decided upon the wooded seclusion of the Fairy Garden. But the pictures we took in the Pergola and on the Bridge are amazing! The other high point for me was the Manor House. I’ve worked in construction and have to say this place is a masterpiece! The attention to detail is incredible. My fiance and our photographer were in Heaven with all the different spots to take awesome pics. There are just so many beautiful backdrops there. I didn’t do much of the planning but I understand that Prudy and Tom are incredibly easy to deal with. They are just nice people who genuinely want you to have a great day and to enjoy what they have clearly worked hard to create. If I could give Stonegate Manor 10 stars, I would!

Tom; October 2017

★★★★★ A+ for location, ambiance, and all around amazing venue. I had my wedding here in September 2017 and it was everything I wanted in a venue and more! I had very few, but specific, requests- I wanted an outdoor ceremony, indoor reception, real bathrooms and, if possible, lawn games. Everywhere else in SWMI had one or two but never all four. Compounding this was the fact that I was an out of state bride and only had pictures and my parents discriptions to go on. Then we found Stonegate Manor, it had everything I wanted and then some! My husband and I had a perfect day and my guests had a wonderful time. Prudy and the rest of the team at Stonegate made everything possible. They took all the stress out of choosing a venue and gave great suggestions for every other vendor I would need as well. Thank you Stonegate Manor!

Elizabeth; October 2017

★★★★★ My daughter’s wedding and reception were held here at the end of September. What a great place to have a wedding! Prudy was very helpful to my wife, with a lot of great ideas. This was a project that spanned nine months. It is a beautiful venue and we cannot recommend it too much. Thank you Prudy.

John; October 2017

★★★★★ I simply cannot say enough good things about Stonegate Manor. I’ll try to keep this review short and to the point, but they were awesome in several specific ways that I want to mention. First, I was an out-of-state bride. I had found the venue on-line, and they held my date for 2-3 weeks before I could get to Michigan to check it out. Second, the owners, Tom and Prudy, are the nicest people. They respond quickly to emails, and even send you emails with suggestions or updates about the property and vendors they work with. Third, the property is stunning. There is a Victorian rental house, a bridal cottage, and the rexpetion hall. All I had to provide for decorations were the centerpieces. They also have a stash of common decorating items you can borrow (most are free, but some come with a small fee) if you need to. The bridal cottage comes with a bathroom (plus bridal emergency kit) and a make-up mirror area. It even has a small kitchen area with fridge and sink so you can have snacks while getting ready. I had probably 10-12 people in there at various times and it never felt crowded. Fourth, they have 2 ceremony sites, the Pergola and the Fairy Garden. And this is where they really showed how awesome they are! I REALLY wanted the Fairy Garden site, it is a nice shady glade in the woods. They had experienced heavy rains leading up to my wedding, making the Fairy Garden wet/muddy and maybe un-usable. Tom and Prudy went above and beyond to make the Fairy Garden happen. They laid out a plywood aisle, and had rugs up at the front so my dress wouldn’t get muddy and the guests could get to their chairs without sinking into the ground. Prudy and Tom provided such a personalized wedding experience, I cannot imagine getting married anywhere else. They really care about making your day perfect for you.

Lisa; August 2017

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor is an absolutely beautiful venue with a great location in the gorgeous region of Southwest Michigan! I messaged Prudy asking for more information on the site and she messaged back within a few hours, in that conversation we had a tour set up for the same week. My mother and I had a tour on a sunny June day and I could envision a perfect outdoor, fall wedding. Prudy and her husband have done a wonderful job with keeping the elegance of the setting but it also has touch of rustic charm. She even brought many details to my attention that I had never even thought about (this wedding planning thing is still very new to me). Unfortunately, my fiancé and I now have a guest list of 350, which is about double the size Stonegate Manor could hold. Although, I can’t have my own wedding at Stonegate, I hope to be able to attend one at the venue someday soon because it truly is beautiful.

Rachael; June 2017

★★★★★ Lory’s Place had a Volunteer Appreciation event May 31 at Stonegate. Our guests were beyond impressed with the beautiful grounds, clean and fresh facilities and overall outstanding setting. Prudy and Tom are helpful in every facet of the excellent experience. I highly recommend you consider Stonegate for any important gathering in your life; you will be so very happy you did! Lory’s Place will most definitely return!

Lisa; June 2017

★★★★★ This venue is amazing! I visited with a friend who is getting married and we both fell in love! The Manor House is the perfect mix of antiques, vintage decorations, and romantic ambiance. Stonegate Manor’s reception space, the Riverside Room is full of custom made elements such as a handcrafted bar, sparkling crystal chandeliers, and french doors leading to the patio and lawn. It’s the most charming and beautiful venue in the area, with a private wooded ceremony site as well as a handcrafted pergola facing the dramatic stone entry gates. There are so many options to customize your event at Stonegate Manor to make it exceed any expectations you could have for your big day 🙂

Jeff; June 2017

★★★★★ Amazing new estate property in Southwest Michigan, one of the most elegant AND affordable around. The property is beautiful, a renovated country manor with private gardens, lawn, and many spaces to have a ceremony and reception. I was shocked at how low their venue rental prices were, I expected it to be double. I’m hoping to have my wedding here next summer if it isn’t booked up by then.

Hanni; March 2017

★★★★★ Prudy has done a fabulous job transforming this Victorian house and grounds into a timeless, romantic wedding venue. CK Catering is so excited to begin working with Prudy and Holden as they add another fabulous venue to our little corner of Michigan. And we look forward to meeting the many couples that will be drawn to this classical setting for their wedding.

Melissa; December, 2016

★★★★★ The grounds are truly magical, you feel as if you have stepped into another world. Very unique with fabulous attention to detail. Wonderful venue to both stay and and then dance the night away.

Anne; November 2016

★★★★★ This is a perfect venue in a perfect location for a wedding. The outdoor area and gardens are lovely for an outdoor ceremony. The indoor reception area is elegant with a covered porch to enjoy. The home on the property is furnished beautifully and perfect for the bridal party to use. A five star venue for sure!!!

Linda; November 2016

★★★★★ As a professional wedding planner & florist, I have loved seeing this venue come to life! The outdoor spaces are expansive and absolutely beautiful, and the Riverside Room is the perfect space for brides that want an elegant and comfortable space, that can accommodate any style, from vintage to traditional. And the Manor House is absolutely gorgeous! Stonegate Manor is definitely a must-see for brides looking for a unique wedding location in SW Michigan!

Jessica; October 2016

★★★★★ It only took one visit before my fiancé and I fell in love with the venue, and it wasn’t even finished! We’ve been welcomed to come back and see the venue as it nears completion. All emails and messages are responded to very quickly. The property is beautiful and will allow us to celebrate our whole day, wedding and reception, at the venue!

Amy; August 2016

★★★★★ “This is one of the most beautiful spaces I’ve ever seen. Pulling in through the stone gates is breathtaking. The Manor House crowns the property and overlooks the huge, tree shaded lawn. There is enough lawn there for hundreds of people!

The Pergola is so classic and a beautiful spot to get married. Crossing the bridge, taking the winding path to the Pergola seems like a fairy tale way to “walk down the aisle”. Just so romantic!

The Fairy Garden is amazing. Surrounded by trees and nature, it seems to wrap its arms around you and create a sense of peaceful expectation. It’s so hard to decide which I will use!

I can’t say enough about the Bridal Cottage! I’ve been in many weddings and I’ve never seen anything like it. So elegant, yet all the amenities one needs plus many more. Clearly Stonegate Manor has tried to think of everything they can to make my wedding day seamless and special. Even a “Bride’s Emergency Kit” full of everything and anything to fix just about any wardrobe malfunction or personal crisis.

Love, love the Riverside Room. It has such good bones…tastefully decorated but a perfect palette to add your own spin and express your own personality. Never thought I would rave about bathrooms but truly, they (at least the woman’s) are beautiful and elegantly appointed. Plus, I don’t think I’ve seen that many stalls at any reception I’ve been to so waiting in line won’t be a big issue. I don’t know who did the decorating of the Riverside Room (or the whole property for that matter) but they have great taste and an eye for good pieces.

Loved how spacious the lawn was and the background sound of the waterfall. So much room to do so many things! More than anything, I want people to have fun at my wedding and there is plenty of space to do that.

What they say is perfectly true. It is “Where Classic Elegance meets Country Charm” and it brings out the best in both of them!”

Tina N; June 2017

★★★★★ “I found this hidden gem by chance on a google search. Looking into different wedding venues I was first struck by the fast response and Prudy’s genuine interest in making my wedding day special and personal. (I waited much longer for responses from other surrounding venues with a generic ‘Thanks for your interest, here is our price list.’)

When I first entered the property I was floored with the elegant vintage atmosphere. In the Manor House the attention to detail from the ceiling to the decor stole my heart as the place I wanted to take wedding photos. The bridal cottage was the icing on the cake with the adorable lace curtains, large mirrors and bridal emergency sewing/misc kit. The idea of an outdoor Michigan wedding in the Fall had me nervous but they are equipped with large furnaces and air conditioning in the reception hall and a plan B to move things indoors if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate…rain or snow.

I couldn’t be more excited and comforted in my decision to make Stonegate my wedding and reception venue. Prudy truly enjoys what she does. Her customer service alone makes this the ideal wedding venue, but the scenery certainly can’t be beat!”

Stephanie H; June, 2017

★★★★★ “Stonegate Manor, oh have I yet to stop thinking about you! The history, the beauty & overall how enchanting it truly is! So thankful for the opportunity to witness something so remarkable. Truly on the top of my list as far as a place to say I do forever with the love of my life! Out of this world!!”

Anslie N; June, 2017

★★★★★ “It seems as though this venue has thought of every detail to host a beautiful and unique Southwest Michigan wedding. The beautifully restored 1800’s home and well landscaped garden area make for a picturesque ceremony site. The reception area is adorned with crystal chandeliers and lighting that creates a wonderful ballroom for a reception. This site will definitely be the perfect choice for couples who value a romantic setting with a historical backdrop.”

Lindsay Q; June, 2017

★★★★★ “I cannot wait til July 15th to experience a wonderful wedding at Stonegate Manor to my best friend and partner in crime. Stonegate Manor is very beautiful and I could not think of a better place to get married or have an event.”

Shaun K; June, 2017

★★★★★ “A beautiful and quaint venue! Very picturesque grounds for any occasion! I would recommend Stonegate Manor to anyone looking to plan a wedding or event!”

Laura D; June, 2017

★★★★ “I think Stonegate Manor is an excellent place for a special weekend or most beautiful place to have a wedding. Nothing like being part of Mother Nature to say ‘I Do’! The stone gate entrance makes a beautiful approach coming into the venue. We were very impressed with Stonegate Manor.”

Faith E; June, 2017

Rachael K; June, 2017

★★★★★ “I am a prospective bride and my fiance and I are looking to get married in the Southwest Michigan area. I came across Stonegate Manor through a Google search, contacted the venue, and was put in touch with Prudy, the owner, who was incredibly responsive, kind and informative. We took a tour of the property, which was hosted by Gretta, who was just as fantastic as Prudy. Gretta truly went above and beyond for us when showing us around. At the end of the tour, she even guided us into downtown St. Joseph and recommended a great lunch spot.

The property itself is lovely. The grounds are well-kept and there are several rose bushes that will no doubt be beautiful when in full bloom. There is also a very picturesque bridge over a stream that would be great for photos. For the ceremony, one option is to have it back in a clearing in the woods, which looks magical, ie one of those Pinterest pins where you think to yourself, ‘WHERE IS THAT?!’ The building where the reception would be in newly renovated and has a great rustic bar near the dance floor and a kitchen towards the back where caterers can set up. It’s in a rectangular shape so Gretta said several layouts can be accommodated between the tables, dance floor and bar.

Both Prudy and Gretta had great followup after the tour – they actually cared whether we had any questions and were open to suggestions for improvement because they are a fairly new venue.

Ultimately, we decided not to go with this venue, but only due to size. We will have around 250 guests and the reception area is probably too tight for that number of people.

But for our number of guests, we would have gone with this spot! Needless to say, I highly recommend this venue. What a gem!”

Olivia S; June, 2017

★★★★★ “Lory’s Place had a Volunteer Appreciation event May 31 at Stonegate. Our guests were beyond impressed with the beautiful grounds, clean and fresh facilities and overall outstanding setting. Prudy and Tom are helpful in every facet of the excellent experience. I highly recommend you consider Stonegate for any important gathering in your life; you will be so happy you did! Lory’s Place will most definitely return!”

Lisa B; June, 2017

★★★★★ “What a charming venue and grounds! As soon as I drove in, I was struck by how beautiful the home, bridal cottage and reception hall are. The buildings have clearly been lovingly and creatively restored from their original 1800’s design. The interior of all of the buildings have been decorated with unique and elegant decor. The grounds are immaculate and showcase lush grass, beautiful hydrangeas, a gorgeous lilac bush and well-kept trees.

Stonegate Manor has two outdoor ceremony sites – and they’re both so pretty it’s hard to choose which one to use! There’s a beautiful white bridge over a small trickling waterfall for the bride to cross over to the ceremony site in front of the Manor. The site in front of the Manor is quite unique because it uses the original stone walkway for the aisle an the original foundation for the ceremony itself. The ceremony site tucked away in the forest struck me as both relaxed and elegant.

I can’t say enough great things about Prudy, the owner of Stonegate Manor. She worked with my hectic schedule to take my Mom and I on a tour and truly took h er time showing us everything and answering all our questions. She has been incredibly fast at replying to all of our emails and has been fun and enjoyable to plan with! She offered several great suggestions about decorating, customizable options and ways to make my wedding day fun and memorable.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous ceremony and reception venue with a relaxed, fun planning experience, I highly recommend Stonegate Manor. I’ll be having my wedding here this summer!”

Autumn P; April, 2017

★★★★★ “This is the most beautiful venue I’ve ever seen. You have all the outdoor space, the woods, the pond and all the flowers. Plus you have this awesome reception room with crystal chandeliers and all sorts of vintage touches like an antique carved bar and unique wall treatments. The bathrooms are large and upscale with granite countertops and a really funk chandelier in the ladies room. The covered veranda is perfect for when your weather isn’t! A great place for cocktails and conversation. Love the light spheres! Even in winter the Fairy Garden looks like a special place. Can’t wait to see it when everything is green!

This venue has everything you need for a great time and lends itself well to decorating to reflect your own style.”

Tina N; April, 2017

★★★★★ “This is a beautiful place! Great for any wedding, event or the house is perfect for a weekend getaway!”

David S; March, 2017

★★★★★ “We had the privilege of staying at this home while attending a wedding in the area for our niece! I am so glad we found this lovely gem tucked in the beautiful woods. It fit our family perfectly and I felt like we were sitting around our own dining room table having coffee and sharing time together. It was clean and had all the accommodations necessary to be away from home. The owners Tom and Prudy were amazing. Showed up with ice for the freezer and were great to work with. They allowed us to use the porch to do all the floral for our nieces wedding and we just made sure we cleaned it up well. I think the neatest thing was it is an old home with a history and it is remodeled beautifully and I love something with a story! You will love this place! thank you for being amazing hosts!”

Maxine K; November, 2016

★★★★★ “This venue is beautiful. There is a beautiful home with antiques, wonderful foliage and grounds, and an awesome venue hall. It is a blank slate and you can do with it as you wish. The owner is really easy to work with and responsive. You can tell she really wants you to have the best experience! We loved it here and would definitely recommend it to any friends wanting to get married up in Michigan!”

Joanne D; December, 2016

★★★★★ “It only took one visit before my fiance and I fell in love with the venue, and it wasn’t even finished! We’ve been welcomed to come back and see the venue as it nears completion. All e-mails and messages are responded to very quickly. The property is beautiful and will allow us to celebrate the whole day, wedding and reception, at the venue!”

Amy G; July, 2016

★★★★★ ”We toured Stonegate Manor at the peak of Michigan fall color season and absolutely loved it – we could easily picture having our entire wedding day there. The trellis and front yard are beautiful. The fairy garden – a grove of trees with a trellis in the middle – is right out of my dreams! And the house is excellently decorated and so comfortable. We (and most of our guests) don’t live in Michigan, so in the end we opted for another location closer to Grand Rapids to make for easier travel. Prudy was so kind and hospitable; it would’ve been a joy to work with her! Had Stonegate Manor been even 40 miles closer to Grand Rapids, we would’ve booked it in a heartbeat. Everything about it was perfect.”

Alayna R; November, 2016

★★★★★ ”We hosted a baby shower in the beautiful home at Stonegate Manor and it did not disappoint. The home’s character can not be found in any of the other venue options in the area. Prudy was very accommodating and professional. I would recommend this site for showers, weekend getaways and weddings. You won’t be disappointed.”

Ashley E; November, 2016

★★★★★ “I have known Prudy and Tom (the owners) for many years. I also have been to Stonegate Manor. If you choose them for your venue you won’t be disappointed! Stonegate is beautiful and the services you ask for will be met and surpassed! I am a professional wedding photographer (for over 25 years) and I know what it takes to satisfy a bride.. Stonegate can do it and more!”

William T; August, 2016

★★★★★ “Stonegate Manor is absolutely charming! My fiancé and I fell in love with the old timey feel. This venue is perfect for anyone because of its versatility. The owner was extremely helpful and kind throughout our experience and made our wedding dreams come true. I am so thankful and happy that Stonegate Manor will forever be apart of our lives. Absolutely gorgeous venue and owners!”

Katherine S; September, 2016

★★★★★ From the very beginning Prudy was wonderful to work with and quick in her responses to any inquires we had. We planned everything from out of town & made multiple requests to visit the venue. Prudy was always very accommodating. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful! The carriage house is perfect to get ready in and stay separate from the guys and guests that may arrive early. It is spacious and allows for plenty of room for your hair and makeup team. The Manor House offers some unique opportunities for photos and a great place for family members & groomsmen to wait. The fairy garden provides the perfect shady spot to exchange your vows. The seating website Tom & Prudy use allows you to easily envision what your reception hall will look like, and they set it up & break down all the tables and chairs. Prudy also has an attic full of decorations you can borrow.

Stonegate Manor provides the perfect spot for an elegant wedding. We loved every minute of our ceremony and reception despite the fact that it was miserably hot the day of our wedding. Tom and Prudy worked tirelessly through the heat to make sure ceremony chairs were set up and everything was running smoothly in the reception hall.

I would give Stonegate Manor 10 stars if the option was available. It is a beautiful location with wonderful amenities. Tom & Prudy are great people to work with. They make sure they understand your vision and are in constant contact to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Nicole; July, 2018

★★★★★ Wow!! No words to describe how perfect Stonegate Manor was for our big day! From start to finish, it was wonderful! Due to some unexpected circumstances, there was a bit of last minute stress surrounding the wedding date – but Prudy was there every step of the way to ensure that all was in place and nothing forgotten. What a TRUE GEM she is!! The venue is GORGEOUS and well maintained. We love that it had very clean and spacious restrooms in the reception hall.  This might not seem like a big deal, but we looked at so many venues that were lacking in this area. Not only were WE taken care of, but so were our guests. Tom and Prudy seriously thought of everything! The bridal party was greeted in the bridal cottage with a bottle of wine and some chocolates. Besides the ample plug-ins for curling wands, large mirrors, cool air conditioned space, tables and chairs, refrigerator, antique furniture (perfect for photo ops!!), what else could we have asked for? In short, the bride and her girls were able to enjoy some much needed pampering during the hours leading up to the ceremony. It’s the little touches that make the most of a big day!  I could go on and on…but seriously, if you’re looking for that perfect place for your wedding (or ANY event), head to Stonegate Manor! I cannot recommend enough!

Katie; July 2018

★★★★★ We had the most wonderful time at Stonegate Manor for our wedding in late June 2018. Working with Prudy and Tom in the run up to the event itself was a breeze. Any emails and questions were answered and replied to very promptly and they genuinely want your day to be super special. We had zero issues with the planning and organizing of the wedding. Stonegate itself is stunning. We booked our wedding in December and had to use our imagination as to what it would look like in summer and we were not disappointed. I stopped by the venue a few times in the run up to our wedding date to see how it was coming along into Spring and early summer and it really took my breath away. The grounds and the buildings are in exceptional condition, evidently very well cared for and maintained. The Manor House itself is a piece of history and a work of art. Our wedding photos taken here were just beautiful. The Bridal Cottage was the most perfect place to get ready beforehand. So elegant and cute and a short walk to the Fairy Garden and Riverside Room. All our vendors were excellent and most had worked at Stonegate before and thoroughly enjoyed doing events there. It was my photographer’s first time at Stonegate and I know she wants to go back again to do further shoots. We could not have asked for a better venue – private, intimate, beautiful gardens, great reception room and bathrooms and the helpfulness of Tom and Prudy. My biggest piece of advice is go for a look around and imagine your dream wedding – we did and our wedding was magical.

Aine; July 2018

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor is a beautiful venue with amazingly friendly staff. As a photographer, my job is always infinitely easier with a gorgeous venue like this one. From the bridal suite to the main house to the reception hall, I was continually blown away by how pristine the venue is. And we haven’t even talked about the grounds! The outdoor ceremony space is the stuff of dreams and there are so many amazing nooks and crannies for photos all over. This would be a great venue for any couple to tie the knot!

Cait; July 2018

★★★★★ Great location and even better service. So many amazing spots to take pictures, what a lovely and accommodating venue!

Jennifer, July 2018

★★★★★ We were just married there a few days ago and I cannot tell you how happy we were with how everything worked out! Stonegate Manor was the first and very best choice we could ever have made. We knew we wanted something different than a barn and we went to the right place! We fell in love with this venue when we pulled into the drive last year. It is amazing with that gorgeous big yellow Manor House, the out buildings, the stone fence and the stone gates. Stunning! It just got better after that. My wife loved the Bridal Cottage where she and her ladies got ready. I can’t wait to see the pictures we had taken on that really pretty rose couch! We also had our first look on the porch and that was fantastic. We chose the Fairy Garden because it is just so secluded and unique. It was fantastic! So very, very beautiful and very natural like we envisioned. We loved having all the outdoor space to spread out and have fun. Cocktails, yard games and even some of the dancing spilled out onto the lawn! The day was perfect so we didn’t need the air or the heat but it was wonderful knowing it was available in the Riverside Room just in case. My wife loved the chandeliers and the other lighting in the Room. Very beautiful. There are so many other things to talk about but I won’t go on and on. You have to check it out for yourselves. The Bridge, the pond, the Pergola, it’s all so unique and makes it a perfect place to have a wedding.

Chris, June 2018

★★★★★ We started off looking for a venue close to the beach and had decided against those because we found this quiet beautiful farm house. It was everything we desired. Everyone, especially Prudy was amazing to deal with. We planned everything from another state and everything went off without a hitch. This venue was very beautiful and we had an amazing party especially including the expansive lawn space. We had lights, tables, corn hole, jenga, and a fire pit outside. There’s was something for everyone to do, even the kiddos. The pictures turned out amazing at this venue. Can’t say enough good things about this venue.

Lauren; June 2018

★★★★★ One of my favorite places in all of Southwest Michigan! Prudy is wonderful and goes above and beyond to make every bride’s dream come true. Everything about Stonegate Manor is impeccable and beyond gorgeous!

Kitty; June 2018

★★★★★ Had the honor of photographing The Carr Wedding at Stonegate Manor. If photography/videography is important to you look no further than Stonegate Manor. Prudy and her gnomes have put so much into creating the perfect location for your special day. Everyone was a huge fan of the turf lawn in the fairy garden. Despite the rain, we still were able to capture perfect photographs for the Bride & Groom.

Katie; June 2018

★★★★★ An absolutely beautiful setting for special events. The owners are honest and accommodating; they understand the importance of making the day special for you! Private peaceful setting with all the lovely details

Edie; June 2018

★★★★★ My husband and I were married at Stonegate Manor last Fall. We also had our reception there. We could not have been happier! As the evening progressed, it got a bit cooler so we really appreciated the heat in the Riverside Room. But, it wasn’t so cold that our guests weren’t able to have a great time out on the lawn with the games the owners provided! What fun! We had the small carved bar on the porch to use for beer and wine, cocktail tables on the lawn and it was great! I felt like a Princess getting ready in the Bridal Cottage. The beautiful vintage furniture made for some great pictures! The Fairy Garden was AMAZING!!!! Surrounded by trees with the leaves changing colors, it was drop dead gorgeous. People are still talking about it. Maybe even more so than my dress! It is a very, very magical place and we are so grateful we were able to start our married lives there. My extended family hung out in the Manor House. What a great option! They had a great time, my Mom got ready there and we were able to use it for some awesome pictures after the wedding. What a great bonus it is to have that on the property! Plus, it just makes the property in general picture perfect. We can’t say enough good things about Stonegate Manor or the owners, Tom and Prudy. They were so helpful every step of the way during the planning process and the big day. Thank you!!!

Sue; May 2018

★★★★★ We at Jenny and Jason Photography, LLC absolutely love the Stonegate Manor! We just photographed wedding photos here earlier this month (May, 2018) and the outdoor wedding ceremony site was gorgeous! It’s amazing that not only is there so much lush outdoor space to work with, but also gorgeous indoor spaces from the bridal suite to manor itself to the reception indoor location. Everything is decorated impeccably with gorgeous victorian accents and beautiful furniture which made photographing prep photos, portraits, cake cutting, etc. a dream.

Also, everything is so nearby that we didn’t worry about how long it’d take to get to any portrait location after the ceremony which is always a huge plus about having everything within a small walking distance. Having the preparation spot next to the ceremony next to the reception location is such a rarity and so helpful for us wedding photographers! Normally we spend at least over an hour within a wedding day trying to get from the hotel prep spot to the ceremony location to the portrait location(s) to the reception location which really adds up and cuts into the time we’re actually photographing!

Owner Prudy was fantastic to work with and is so helpful with everything. We can’t say enough great things about Stonegate and its owners! They make everything run wonderfully smoothly and the space itself makes the work of the day easy and more enjoyable!

Jenny; May 2018

★★★★★ The attention to detail makes this historic venue very unique! The grounds are so gorgeous, including the adorable bridal cottage! It makes for amazing backdrops in photographs from getting ready, to the ceremony, to celebrating in the reception hall.

Prudy and Tom are so helpful and pleasant to work with! They work very hard to accommodate all your needs and help personalize your event to your specific liking. They are prompt communicators, and make you feel at ease during your whole planning experience and on your special day! Highly recommend this unforgettable venue!

Shannon; March 2018

★★★★★ If you are looking for a venue that speaks of beauty, elegance and fine detail, with whispers of a past not forgotten, look no further than Stonegate Manor. In a day and time when everything seems so fast paced, why settle for a mediocre wedding when you can experience a timeless wedding surrounded by the beauty of nature and elegance. Every conceivable detail is taken to ensure that the most special day of your life will be remembered in the beauty and grace that such a day warrants. Don’t settle for the mediocrity that so many offer when you can truly experience the sublime that awaits for you at Stonegate Manor, where time stands still just for you.

Sharon; March 2018

★★★★★ Get ready to fall in love all over again!

If your dream wedding is to be held in a boring ol reception hall, then scroll on my friend, this isn’t the place for you. But if you envision your dream wedding to be held in a romantic Fairy Garden, surrounded by your friends and family, look no further!

Stonegate Manor is hands down the most beautiful historic wedding venue that southwest Michigan has to offer. Surrounded by several acres of sweeping green lawns and woods, SGM offers two ceremony sites, an indoor (with a/c) reception hall or option to have your reception outdoors under a tent or the stars, and the historic Manor House and romantic Wedding Cottage for the wedding party to get ready in.

And the photo opportunities are endless!!!!

I just can’t say enough about my experience here and with SGM’s owners, Prudy and her husband Tom. Every single bride that I know that has seen SGM has wanted to have their wedding there. I want to have my wedding there!

Anji; January 2018

★★★★★ I don’t even know where to begin! Most of the way through my wedding planning process, my husbands orders had changed and we needed to move our wedding up very quickly. Stonegate Manor showed up on a search that we did to check wedding venues in the area, and Prudy told us that we could come and see the venue that afternoon. Stonegate Manor is an absolutely gorgeous venue, that I fell in love with as soon as we pulled up to walk around. Prudy and Tom are amazing people, and allowed us to have our wedding at their venue with severely short notice. They were so accommodating to my husband and I and they did an amazing job with everything our short time, weather (SNOW) and lives could throw at them. Our wedding went so smoothly, and I can’t thank Prudy and Tom enough for all of the amazing work that they did for us. I cannot say enough good things about Stonegate, and I would recommend this absolutely GORGEOUS venue to anyone that needs an amazing event space run by the best people!

Alexandra, December 2017

★★★★★ We are so grateful to Stonegate Manor for making our day perfect. We love the natural feel of the space – the trees, the gardens, the lawn. Our guests had plenty of room to roam. The lawn games that Prudy and Tom provided were so much fun. We didn’t think people were going to come in for dinner! You can tell a lot of effort and love was put into making this a lovely space. The vintage items are exquisite and unique. The vendors that Prudy suggested did a great job! Loved them all. It was just a great experience all in all and we are thrilled we found Stonegate Manor. We just happened to see it on google as we were leaving another wedding venue!

Susan; November 2017

★★★★★ We absolutely LOVE Stonegate Manor. It is just so beautiful and unlike any of the other venues we looked at in the area. There is just so much space! Lots and lots of lawn to mingle and play games plus a great indoor, air-conditioned space which is elegant with just enough vintage touches to make it unique. The owners, Tom and Prudy, have bent over backwards to answer our questions and do everything in their power to make our wedding day as special as can be. They are extremely flexible and customer friendly. Prudy has such a great selection of items she let us borrow to add those special little details to our reception. I felt like I could create a Pinterest-worthy display without spending a dime! We just cannot recommend Stonegate Manor highly enough. We have heard some real horror stories about other venues and feel we were incredibly blessed to have stumbled upon this hidden gem!

Susan; November 2017

★★★★★ We are so thrilled to have discovered Stonegate Manor. It was the perfect venue for us. We wanted someplace where we and our guests could have fun….play games, mingle outside, enjoy nature…and yet still have all the amenities (including air-conditioning!!!!) that an elegant venue would have. Well, we hit the jackpot! There is plenty of room to roam at Stonegate. It’s really a huge space! We had a hard time deciding between the different ceremony sites but ultimately decided upon the wooded seclusion of the Fairy Garden. But the pictures we took in the Pergola and on the Bridge are amazing! The other high point for me was the Manor House. I’ve worked in construction and have to say this place is a masterpiece! The attention to detail is incredible. My fiance and our photographer were in Heaven with all the different spots to take awesome pics. There are just so many beautiful backdrops there. I didn’t do much of the planning but I understand that Prudy and Tom are incredibly easy to deal with. They are just nice people who genuinely want you to have a great day and to enjoy what they have clearly worked hard to create. If I could give Stonegate Manor 10 stars, I would!

Tom; October 2017

★★★★★ A+ for location, ambiance, and all around amazing venue. I had my wedding here in September 2017 and it was everything I wanted in a venue and more! I had very few, but specific, requests- I wanted an outdoor ceremony, indoor reception, real bathrooms and, if possible, lawn games. Everywhere else in SWMI had one or two but never all four. Compounding this was the fact that I was an out of state bride and only had pictures and my parents discriptions to go on. Then we found Stonegate Manor, it had everything I wanted and then some! My husband and I had a perfect day and my guests had a wonderful time. Prudy and the rest of the team at Stonegate made everything possible. They took all the stress out of choosing a venue and gave great suggestions for every other vendor I would need as well. Thank you Stonegate Manor!

Elizabeth; October 2017

★★★★★ My daughter’s wedding and reception were held here at the end of September. What a great place to have a wedding! Prudy was very helpful to my wife, with a lot of great ideas. This was a project that spanned nine months. It is a beautiful venue and we cannot recommend it too much. Thank you Prudy.

John; October 2017

★★★★★ I simply cannot say enough good things about Stonegate Manor. I’ll try to keep this review short and to the point, but they were awesome in several specific ways that I want to mention. First, I was an out-of-state bride. I had found the venue on-line, and they held my date for 2-3 weeks before I could get to Michigan to check it out. Second, the owners, Tom and Prudy, are the nicest people. They respond quickly to emails, and even send you emails with suggestions or updates about the property and vendors they work with. Third, the property is stunning. There is a Victorian rental house, a bridal cottage, and the rexpetion hall. All I had to provide for decorations were the centerpieces. They also have a stash of common decorating items you can borrow (most are free, but some come with a small fee) if you need to. The bridal cottage comes with a bathroom (plus bridal emergency kit) and a make-up mirror area. It even has a small kitchen area with fridge and sink so you can have snacks while getting ready. I had probably 10-12 people in there at various times and it never felt crowded. Fourth, they have 2 ceremony sites, the Pergola and the Fairy Garden. And this is where they really showed how awesome they are! I REALLY wanted the Fairy Garden site, it is a nice shady glade in the woods. They had experienced heavy rains leading up to my wedding, making the Fairy Garden wet/muddy and maybe un-usable. Tom and Prudy went above and beyond to make the Fairy Garden happen. They laid out a plywood aisle, and had rugs up at the fornt so my dress woldn’t get muddy and the guests could get to their chairs without sinking into the ground. Prudy and Tom provided such a personalized wedding experience, I cannot imagine getting married anywhere else. They really care about making your day perfect for you.

★★★★★ Stonegate Manor is an absolutely beautiful venue with a great location in the gorgeous region of Southwest Michigan! I messaged Prudy asking for more information on the site and she messaged back within a few hours, in that conversation we had a tour set up for the same week. My mother and I had a tour on a sunny June day and I could envision a perfect outdoor, fall wedding. Prudy and her husband have done a wonderful job with keeping the elegance of the setting but it also has touch of rustic charm. She even brought many details to my attention that I had never even thought about (this wedding planning thing is still very new to me). Unfortunately, my fiancé and I now have a guest list of 350, which is about double the size Stonegate Manor could hold. Although, I can’t have my own wedding at Stonegate, I hope to be able to attend one at the venue someday soon because it truly is beautiful.

Rachael; June 2017

★★★★★ Lory’s Place had a Volunteer Appreciation event May 31 at Stonegate. Our guests were beyond impressed with the beautiful grounds, clean and fresh facilities and overall outstanding setting. Prudy and Tom are helpful in every facet of the excellent experience. I highly recommend you consider Stonegate for any important gathering in your life; you will be so very happy you did! Lory’s Place will most definitely return!

Lisa; June 2017

★★★★★ This venue is amazing! I visited with a friend who is getting married and we both fell in love! The Manor House is the perfect mix of antiques, vintage decorations, and romantic ambiance. Stonegate Manor’s reception space, the Riverside Room is full of custom made elements such as a handcrafted bar, sparkling crystal chandeliers, and french doors leading to the patio and lawn. It’s the most charming and beautiful venue in the area, with a private wooded ceremony site as well as a handcrafted pergola facing the dramatic stone entry gates. There are so many options to customize your event at Stonegate Manor to make it exceed any expectations you could have for your big day

Jeff; June 2017

★★★★★ Amazing new estate property in Southwest Michigan, one of the most elegant AND affordable around. The property is beautiful, a renovated country manor with private gardens, lawn, and many spaces to have a ceremony and reception. I was shocked at how low their venue rental prices were, I expected it to be double. I’m hoping to have my wedding here next summer if it isn’t booked up by then.

Hanni; March 2017

★★★★★ Prudy has done a fabulous job transforming this Victorian house and grounds into a timeless, romantic wedding venue. CK Catering is so excited to begin working with Prudy and Holden as they add another fabulous venue to our little corner of Michigan. And we look forward to meeting the many couples that will be drawn to this classical setting for their wedding.

Melissa; December, 2016

★★★★★ The grounds are truly magical, you feel as if you have stepped into another world. Very unique with fabulous attention to detail. Wonderful venue to both stay and and then dance the night away.

Anne; November 2016

★★★★★ This is a perfect venue in a perfect location for a wedding. The outdoor area and gardens are lovely for an outdoor ceremony. The indoor reception area is elegant with a covered porch to enjoy. The home on the property is furnished beautifully and perfect for the bridal party to use. A five star venue for sure!!!

Linda; November 2016

★★★★★ As a professional wedding planner & florist, I have loved seeing this venue come to life! The outdoor spaces are expansive and absolutely beautiful, and the Riverside Room is the perfect space for brides that want an elegant and comfortable space, that can accommodate any style, from vintage to traditional. And the Manor House is absolutely gorgeous! Stonegate Manor is definitely a must-see for brides looking for a unique wedding location in SW Michigan!

Jessica; October 2016

★★★★★ It only took one visit before my fiancé and I fell in love with the venue, and it wasn’t even finished! We’ve been welcomed to come back and see the venue as it nears completion. All emails and messages are responded to very quickly. The property is beautiful and will allow us to celebrate our whole day, wedding and reception, at the venue!

Amy; August 2016

★★★★★ “This is one of the most beautiful spaces I’ve ever seen. Pulling in through the stone gates is breathtaking. The Manor House crowns the property and overlooks the huge, tree shaded lawn. There is enough lawn there for hundreds of people!

The Pergola is so classic and a beautiful spot to get married. Crossing the bridge, taking the winding path to the Pergola seems like a fairy tale way to “walk down the aisle”. Just so romantic!

The Fairy Garden is amazing. Surrounded by trees and nature, it seems to wrap its arms around you and create a sense of peaceful expectation. It’s so hard to decide which I will use!

I can’t say enough about the Bridal Cottage! I’ve been in many weddings and I’ve never seen anything like it. So elegant, yet all the amenities one needs plus many more. Clearly Stonegate Manor has tried to think of everything they can to make my wedding day seamless and special. Even a “Bride’s Emergency Kit” full of everything and anything to fix just about any wardrobe malfunction or personal crisis.

Love, love the Riverside Room. It has such good bones…tastefully decorated but a perfect palette to add your own spin and express your own personality. Never thought I would rave about bathrooms but truly, they (at least the woman’s) are beautiful and elegantly appointed. Plus, I don’t think I’ve seen that many stalls at any reception I’ve been to so waiting in line won’t be a big issue. I don’t know who did the decorating of the Riverside Room (or the whole property for that matter) but they have great taste and an eye for good pieces.

Loved how spacious the lawn was and the background sound of the waterfall. So much room to do so many things! More than anything, I want people to have fun at my wedding and there is plenty of space to do that.

What they say is perfectly true. It is “Where Classic Elegance meets Country Charm” and it brings out the best in both of them!”

Tina N; June 2017

★★★★★ “I found this hidden gem by chance on a google search. Looking into different wedding venues I was first struck by the fast response and Prudy’s genuine interest in making my wedding day special and personal. (I waited much longer for responses from other surrounding venues with a generic ‘Thanks for your interest, here is our price list.’) 

When I first entered the property I was floored with the elegant vintage atmosphere. In the Manor House the attention to detail from the ceiling to the decor stole my heart as the place I wanted to take wedding photos. The bridal cottage was the icing on the cake with the adorable lace curtains, large mirrors and bridal emergency sewing/misc kit. The idea of an outdoor Michigan wedding in the Fall had me nervous but they are equipped with large furnaces and air conditioning in the reception hall and a plan B to move things indoors if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate…rain or snow.

I couldn’t be more excited and comforted in my decision to make Stonegate my wedding and reception venue. Prudy truly enjoys what she does. Her customer service alone makes this the ideal wedding venue, but the scenery certainly can’t be beat!”

Stephanie H; June, 2017

★★★★★ “Stonegate Manor, oh have I yet to stop thinking about you! The history, the beauty & overall how enchanting it truly is! So thankful for the opportunity to witness something so remarkable. Truly on the top of my list as far as a place to say I do forever with the love of my life! Out of this world!!”

Anslie N; June, 2017

★★★★★ “It seems as though this venue has thought of every detail to host a beautiful and unique Southwest Michigan wedding. The beautifully restored 1800’s home and well landscaped garden area make for a picturesque ceremony site. The reception area is adorned with crystal chandeliers and lighting that creates a wonderful ballroom for a reception. This site will definitely be the perfect choice for couples who value a romantic setting with a historical backdrop.”

Lindsay Q; June, 2017

★★★★★ “I cannot wait til July 15th to experience a wonderful wedding at Stonegate Manor to my best friend and partner in crime. Stonegate Manor is very beautiful and I could not think of a better place to get married or have an event.”

Shaun K; June, 2017

★★★★★ “A beautiful and quaint venue! Very picturesque grounds for any occasion! I would recommend Stonegate Manor to anyone looking to plan a wedding or event!”

Laura D; June, 2017

★★★★ “I think Stonegate Manor is an excellent place for a special weekend or most beautiful place to have a wedding. Nothing like being part of Mother Nature to say ‘I Do’! The stone gate entrance makes a beautiful approach coming into the venue. We were very impressed with Stonegate Manor.”

★★★★★ “I am a prospective bride and my fiance and I are looking to get married in the Southwest Michigan area. I came across Stonegate Manor through a Google search, contacted the venue, and was put in touch with Prudy, the owner, who was incredibly responsive, kind and informative. We took a tour of the property, which was hosted by Gretta, who was just as fantastic as Prudy. Gretta truly went above and beyond for us when showing us around. At the end of the tour, she even guided us into downtown St. Joseph and recommended a great lunch spot.

The property itself is lovely. The grounds are well-kept and there are several rose bushes that will no doubt be beautiful when in full bloom. There is also a very picturesque bridge over a stream that would be great for photos. For the ceremony, one option is to have it back in a clearing in the woods, which looks magical, ie one of those Pinterest pins where you think to yourself, ‘WHERE IS THAT?!’ The building where the reception would be in newly renovated and has a great rustic bar near the dance floor and a kitchen towards the back where caterers can set up. It’s in a rectangular shape so Gretta said several layouts can be accommodated between the tables, dance floor and bar.

Both Prudy and Gretta had great followup after the tour – they actually cared whether we had any questions and were open to suggestions for improvement because they are a fairly new venue.

Ultimately, we decided not to go with this venue, but only due to size. We will have around 250 guests and the reception area is probably too tight for that number of people.

But for our number of guests, we would have gone with this spot! Needless to say, I highly recommend this venue. What a gem!”

Lisa B; June, 2017

★★★★★ “What a charming venue and grounds! As soon as I drove in, I was struck by how beautiful the home, bridal cottage and reception hall are. The buildings have clearly been lovingly and creatively restored from their original 1800’s design. The interior of all of the buildings have been decorated with unique and elegant decor. The grounds are immaculate and showcase lush grass, beautiful hydrangeas, a gorgeous lilac bush and well-kept trees.

Stonegate Manor has two outdoor ceremony sites – and they’re both so pretty it’s hard to choose which one to use! There’s a beautiful white bridge over a small trickling waterfall for the bride to cross over to the ceremony site in front of the Manor. The site in front of the Manor is quite unique because it uses the original stone walkway for the aisle an the original foundation for the ceremony itself. The ceremony site tucked away in the forest struck me as both relaxed and elegant.

I can’t say enough great things about Prudy, the owner of Stonegate Manor. She worked with my hectic schedule to take my Mom and I on a tour and truly took h er time showing us everything and answering all our questions. She has been incredibly fast at replying to all of our emails and has been fun and enjoyable to plan with! She offered several great suggestions about decorating, customizable options and ways to make my wedding day fun and memorable.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous ceremony and reception venue with a relaxed, fun planning experience, I highly recommend Stonegate Manor. I’ll be having my wedding here this summer!”

Autumn P; April, 2017

★★★★★ “This is the most beautiful venue I’ve ever seen. You have all the outdoor space, the woods, the pond and all the flowers. Plus you have this awesome reception room with crystal chandeliers and all sorts of vintage touches like an antique carved bar and unique wall treatments. The bathrooms are lrge and upscale with granite countertops and a really funk chandlier in the ladies room. The covered veranda is perfect for when your weather isn’t! A great place for cocktails and conversation. Love the light spheres! Even in winter the Fairy Garden looks like a special place. Can’t wait to see it when everything is green! 

This venue has everything you need for a great time and lends itself well to decorating to reflect your own style.”

Tina N; April, 2017

★★★★★ “This is a beautiful place! Great for any wedding, event or the house is perfect for a weekend getaway!”

David S; March, 2017

★★★★★ “We had the privilege of staying at this home while attending a wedding in the area for our niece! I am so glad we found this lovely gem tucked in the beautiful woods. It fit our family perfectly and I felt like we were sitting around our own dining room table having coffee and sharing time together. It was clean and had all the accommodations necessary to be away from home. The owners Tom and Prudy were amazing. Showed up with ice for the freezer and were great to work with. They allowed us to use the porch to do all the floral for our nieces wedding and we just made sure we cleaned it up well. I think the neatest thing was it is an old home with a history and it is remodeled beautifully and I love something with a story! You will love this place! thank you for being amazing hosts!”

Maxine K;  November, 2016

★★★★★ “This venue is beautiful. There is a beautiful home with antiques, wonderful foliage and grounds, and an awesome venue hall. It is a blank slate and you can do with it as you wish. The owner is really easy to work with and responsive. You can tell she really wants you to have the best experience! We loved it here and would definitely recommend it to any friends wanting to get married up in Michigan!”

Amy G;  July, 2016

★★★★★  ”We toured Stonegate Manor at the peak of Michigan fall color season and absolutely loved it – we could easily picture having our entire wedding day there. The trellis and front yard are beautiful. The fairy garden – a grove of trees with a trellis in the middle – is right out of my dreams! And the house is excellently decorated and so comfortable. We (and most of our guests) don’t live in Michigan, so in the end we opted for another location closer to Grand Rapids to make for easier travel. Prudy was so kind and hospitable; it would’ve been a joy to work with her! Had Stonegate Manor been even 40 miles closer to Grand Rapids, we would’ve booked it in a heartbeat. Everything about it was perfect.”

Alayna R; November, 2016

★★★★★  ”We hosted a baby shower in the beautiful home at Stonegate Manor and it did not disappoint. The home’s character can not be found in any of the other venue options in the area. Prudy was very accommodating and professional. I would recommend this site for showers, weekend getaways and weddings. You won’t be disappointed.”

Ashley E; November, 2016

★★★★★  “I have known Prudy and Tom (the owners) for many years. I also have been to Stonegate Manor. If you choose them for your venue you won’t be disappointed! Stonegate is beautiful and the services you ask for will be met and surpassed! I am a professional wedding photographer (for over 25 years) and I know what it takes to satisfy a bride.. Stonegate can do it and more!”

William T; August, 2016

★★★★★  “Stonegate Manor is absolutely charming! My fiancé and I fell in love with the old timey feel. This venue is perfect for anyone because of its versatility. The owner was extremely helpful and kind throughout our experience and made our wedding dreams come true. I am so thankful and happy that Stonegate Manor will forever be apart of our lives. Absolutely gorgeous venue and owners!”
