Woodsgate (75-150 Guests)
One of Stroudsmoor's oldest and most charming buildings is Woodsgate. This 200-year-old restored barn affords the Bride and Groom enchanting views of the surrounding forest, charming evergreen gardens and an atmosphere of country-elegance. The wedding celebration begins with the ceremony in The Woodland Chapel, where a cobblestone path leads guests to into the woods and the bride and her groom to the altar. The stonewalls of Woodsgate’s entrance level evoke a pub-like atmosphere enhanced by comfortable wing chairs, century old beams, a stone bar, fireplace, twig and branch chandeliers and baby grand piano – on which a little “Jazz” could entertain guests during the cocktail hour. A spiral staircase leads guests to the dining room where hardwood dance floor, bronze chandeliers, Chivari chairs, lavish tables settings, fireplace terrace and beautiful vistas invite guests to relax and enjoy . . . or dance the night away.

The most historic of Stroudsmoor's 18 buildings, Woodsgate features two enchanting ceremony sites. The first is a European Garden adjacent to the building. A ten-foot fieldstone wall with coach lights and wrought iron gates surround the Garden creating an atmosphere of privacy. Acting as an altar, a charming cedar gazebo completes the Garden.
The second of Woodsgate's ceremony sites is the Woodland Chapel.
As its name suggests, it is located in the woods beyond the building. A canopy of thirty-foot oak and maple trees creates this outdoor chapel. Its altar is a natural wood trellis and a cobblestone path leads to a kissing bench for photos. Even the deer have been known to attend a ceremony in the Woodland Chapel.
Both sites accommodate ceremonies for 75 to 150 guests.
