Intimate Atlanta wedding – Stonehurst is the perfect Place

Pin It

Weddings at Stonehurst Place Atlanta are one of the great joys of being innkeepers.

Stonehurst Place garden wedding

When a bride and groom searches for an intimate Atlanta wedding and chooses one of our Effortless Elopement packages, the honor and responsibility of making that day perfect is not lost on us. The fact that Paul and I are sometimes the only witnesses to such moments makes the honor even more profound. We believe that Stonehurst is the perfect venue for today’s new wedding.

Research shows a growing trend of small, intimate weddings, fueled by two factors: economy and the age of today’s bride and groom.  According to The Knot, considered the authority on all things wedding, the average wedding today costs about $29.000. That’s a price that many couples are not willing or able to pay. In addition, the average bride’s age is now 27 and most grooms are tying the knot at 29. Coordinating a wedding, while balancing work and perhaps family, is difficult.

The Wedding Report, a market research firm, has been tracking the change, noting that in the last year, couples participating in the company’s surveys have increasingly reported a desire for “fun, romantic, simple, casual and unique weddings.”

Where is the perfect venue for this fun, romantic, simple, casual and unique wedding? We think it’s Stonehurst Place!

During the past year we have witnessed some of the sweetest weddings ever! And although we have three different elopement ‘levels’ and can accommodate up to fifty guests, there are no cookie-cutter weddings here.  Most brides and grooms make an appointment to tour the house and to discuss their plans.  One of our most memorable weddings only included the bride and groom, Paul and I, and one photographer.  The newly-married couple went home the next day to surprise their family and friends at a dinner party.  Equally as remarkable was the wedding on New Year’s Eve that included family and friends, with a special toast at Midnight.

We work hard at putting the “Effortless” into the Stonehurst Place Effortless Elopement & Wedding packages.

Levels include a ceremony of a specific length, and a maximum guest count. They include the officiant, the bouquet and boutonniere, an incredible cake, two Stonehurst Place champagne flutes, a Stonehurst Place gown hanger, music of your selection, and accommodations for the wedding couple. Pricing does not include a photographer, but we have some very good recommendations.

Perfect getaway and great hosts. Can’t say enough about Stonehurst. Amazing breakfasts, beautiful rooms and great hosts!! They even let us borrow their MARTA card so we didn’t have to get one. Paul gave us tips and even a map. We are so glad we chose to stay here

From the moment we arrived, we didn’t want to leave. Our stay at Stonehurst well exceeded expectations and our return is imminent. From the breakfast to the inn keepers to the coffee table books to the reading room, all was great. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet and restful but only a short walk to vibrant night life and phenomenal restaurants. […] Stonehurst made a Labor Day weekend getaway a truly memorable experience.

Convenient to downtown Atlanta!

It was a wonderful place and it was very convenient to downtown Atlanta. The homemade breakfast every morning was amazing! The room was comfortable and the full marble bath was wonderful. The innkeepers were always pleasant and willing to help with whatever you needed. Will plan on staying here again the next time we are in Atlanta.

“Exceptional Inn for Business travelers to Atlanta.”

What I want as a creative business traveler in a hotel or inn is to have three things: great comfortable bed, exceptionally cleanliness, privacy/quiet room and common areas. The Stonehurst Place provides all these with an outstanding level of service and attention to detail. If your Business is Advertising, TV, Film Production, Music even accountants like it too so give this a try, it beats the convention hotels and chains with pure perfection. Least I forget that the breakfast is exceptional. Thank you Paul & Lori, looking forward to our next Atlanta business trip.

Green Features: Exceptional attention to the environment. Means a great deal to me and my colleagues. They do it right. From water, to recycle products.

Awesome place!

We really loved this B&B. Feels like you are in the suburbs, but within walking distance of the city. Located in the midtown section of Atlanta, Stonehurst Place is very centrally located to many restaurants, shops, and Piedmont Park. We took in a Braves game while we were there. At the suggestion of Paul, we took the train and then the bus to the stadium. Being from the country, this could have been a disaster. But we made it all in one piece. It was very easy! We stayed in the Master suite, absolutely beautiful. The views of the city from the room were spectacular! A definite must stay.

Unquestionably the best hotel I’ve stayed in during many years of business and pleasure travels in the Americas, North, South and Central.
The website and its pretty pictures are no marketing exaggeration, but the real deal. You can get all the info there about the background, design and eco side of the place, I won’t repeat that here.

To be clear it is B&B: no gyms, pools, bars or restaurants. It’s a very modest environment tuned to a very specific perfection of refined consideration. If quiet and superbly appointed understatement is your thing, and you are happy to eat what you are given – the Inn Keepers decide what your breakfast is today, not you – then this will be a treat. If not, then do yourself (and everyone else) a favour and find somewhere better suited to your requirements.

Breakfast is an experience. It changes every day and for me was unfailingly superb. Don’t forego the baking left out for guests either, unless your waistline insists.

I stayed in “Gables”, which didn’t really have any view at all, but that was irrelevant for me. Best shower ever, anywhere, on the planet. Great bed – exceptionally comfy. Ideal room for me.

Everything you need is provided.

Final point is the staff – the Inn Keepers could not be more welcoming and hospitable. Nothing is too much and nothing is a problem, unless you choose to make it so.

All in all, I could find no fault at all, something I’ve never said before about a hotel. Perhaps the worst aspect is that everywhere else I ever stay will be a dump…
