One of our absolute favorite spots in the US is Lake Michigan. There’s something about the air in Michigan that just makes all your worries disappear. We talked to Jennifer of Stonegate Manor, an elegant venue in South West Michigan with country charm. She gave us some awesome tips on finding a perfect venue.
“In the past years when I’ve attended special events, one of the first things I notice is the space around me,” said Jennifer. “I’ve been to indoor and outdoor gatherings, and as a guest, I can say the venue has a lot to do with the experience I had and the memories that I still carry with me. For many girls, their Quinceañera is the most important event of their teenage years.
A lot of planning and coordinating goes into this event to truly showcase the young girl’s transformation to womanhood. Nonetheless, every detail and thought put into this event will help craft a special and memorable day for the lucky girl, her family and friends.

From casual to elegant, Stonegate Manor has the right combination for everyone!
“When you’re searching for a venue,” Said Jennifer. “Try to envision your theme, colors, guests, and even you in your dress. Do they look right in this space?” It’s important to choose a venue that has the style you’re looking for and flows with your theme and ideas.
Jennifer goes on to explain the importance of selecting a venue that can cater to your needs. “Your venue should be able to provide what you need to make your party perfect, without stressing you out more!” You’ll want to ask if the venue can provide you with an on-site coordinator for your event. Having a coordinator will help you immensely when it comes to setting up for your party. Some other things you may need to ask about are tables, chairs, linens, waitstaff, and any policies they have for events.
What season is your Quince in? “If you are planning a summer celebration, make sure your venue has air conditioning so your guests (and you!) aren’t sweating all night.”
“Whatever you choose, remember that your location will have a lasting impression on your guests. Many of them won’t remember the dessert or what songs they danced to, but they will certainly remember how beautiful the venue was, how comfortable they were, and how much fun they had!”
