Stonehurst at Hampton Valley is where your dream wedding becomes an extraordinary reality! Whether you’re craving a rustic vibe, aiming for sheer elegance, or combined for straight up rustic elegance, StoneHurst’s venue options are designed to leave a lasting impression. Let’s delve into the exceptional features along with the incredible amenities that StoneHurst has to offer.
First let’s take a moment to appreciate how StoneHurst came to be. Once an Alpaca farm with the main barn and mansion, in 2017 it was purchased and the incredible barn reception area was added through the meticulous work of Quiet Barn Restoration. In 2018, StoneHurst opened their doors to rock weddings, and in 2020, the mansion was given a total overhaul to ensure every corner of Stonehurst exudes grandeur and style. When you explore the grounds at StoneHurst, you can feel how every inch of the property was designed with weddings in mind.
The Barn is a remarkable and spacious venue capable of accommodating up to 300 guests (without the dance floor) or 250 guests (with the dance floor). With its unique charm and artistic flair, the Barns gorgeous post and beam reception room will leave you speechless. It is fully accessible for everyone and boasts the convenience of AC/Heat, ensuring a comfortable environment regardless of the weather. The Barn has got you covered ( pun intended ) with its exposed post and beam construction and amazing chandeliers. They’ve also got a cocktail room, an outdoor fire pit for those cozy moments. For those who can appreciate nature’s beauty, The Forest ceremony site will leave you in awe.
When it’s time to get ready for your wedding day, the dedicated wedding suite has your back. With access to the suite starting at 8 am on the day of your wedding, it comes complete with full catering to satisfy your appetite like true rockstars. Wedding time slots at The Barn start at 4, 5, and 6 pm. And if you want to keep the party going into the night, you have the option to extend the celebration if you kick off the festivities before 6 pm. Barn weddings are 5.5 hours long, concluding at 11:30 pm.
The Mansion is a charming venue ideal for more intimate gatherings. With a capacity for up to 120 guests, it offers an exclusive and intimate setting and boasts a stunning post and beam Swiss chalet look with a jaw-dropping stone façade. As soon as you step through those wrought iron doors, prepare to be amazed! The grand entrance is incredible with beautiful stone fireplaces. A wedding at the Mansion will definitely be an unforgettable experience that will leave you and your guests in awe.
The Mansion is fully accessible and equipped with AC/Heat, ensuring everyone’s comfort. The Mansion comes with your choice between the riverside or the serene greens as your ceremony site.
