The Havenstone is best known for hosting weddings and elopements, but our vision of sharing our property includes making it available for private events too. In fact, it's the things that make us so great for wedding ceremonies that make us equally great for your special event. All booked events include exclusive, private access to our 18 acre property. So you'll not only have a ton of parking and a beautiful setting for your event, but you'll be the only group there, outside of a staff member or two.
If you've taken the time to review our photography sessions offering, you'll be pleased to know that your time at the Havenstone also includes full access to each of our settings for everyone attending your event. Since you have full roam of all of our public areas, this additional benefit acts as the perfect way to memorialize your event.
So what kind of events work best at the Havenstone? There's really no limit...
But that's not all... In fact, we are open to discussing any event you would like to host at the Havenstone. While some might not be the best fit, we find that most are perfectly suited to everything we have to offer. Our pricing and availability is all dependent upon the specifics of your event, so we start the process by learning more about what you are planning. But those details can wait. We should first spend some time in the Quarry...
Our primary event space is a pre-civil war sandstone quarry, simply known as "the Quarry." This is the feature that started it all, and it's what separates the Havenstone from everyone else. While there are many natural and staged features throughout our 18 acre property, the Quarry is the most unique, and offers a feeling and setting that you will not find anywhere else...
The C-shaped rock wall that defines the Quarry surrounds its visitors with a natural beauty that transitions between a variety of aesthetics, despite some being only feet apart:
decades-old moss in a thick, green blanket
massive, hand cut platforms where the stonework stopped over a century ago
sheer walls with a darkened surface from over 100 years of exposure to the elements
a waterfall that softly cascades into the stone-lined fish pond below
Everyone seems to have their own "favorite" part of the Quarry, and it truly sets a dramatic backdrop for your event. If you have a different area of the Havenstone property that you'd rather use though, we're open to that as well. With our variety of staged and natural settings throughout the property, we know that sometimes people are drawn to one specific feature. If that's the case for you, just let us know during your private tour and we will get to work on planning how to make it work. That being said, it's hard to imagine anything more perfect than the Quarry.
With the wide variety of events that we allow and the vast difference in the number of people invited to attend them, we don't have a set price for our Private Event offering. Instead, we ask some basic information about the event that you are planning and then quickly return an estimate for your review. We also offer a private tour option that is available at any point, even before you submit your event information. Our goal is to make sure you have all of the information you need to book your event at the Havenstone with the highest confidence that you are picking the best possible setting for your day.
