from Carol    

Carol Noonan Thank you for being interested in Stone Mountain for your wedding and congrats!!

As they said above, I do take your wedding very personally, and my staff and myself will work wicked hard for you! We have the best crew in the world and that is really important on your wedding day.

We humbly invite you to read below lots of our details and pricing to see if we are a good fit. We are a unique place for unique folks..hope you will be some of them!!

And before you get into the nitty gritty, here is a little photo slide show for your enjoyment. The song that goes with it, is a song I wrote many years ago and recorded with my old band, Knots and Crosses. I wrote it when I fell for my husband Jeff :.) It's a great wedding song! “Waiting For You” …...

  Our Hannah          

When we first opened SMAC I never imagined we would do weddings. I only had music on the brain ! So our early weddings were pretty much coordinated by me, myself, and I don't know what I'm doing. God love those first couples who put up with me and my old school ways. My heart was always in the right place, but it was clear I was not as "pinterested" as I could be in some of the finer details. So I wanted to get someone to help with those details....someone who could work with our couples that had that same heart, but was maybe a little more in touch with what's going on in the current decade! I got that in Hannah, but so much more. : >)

So here is my " Hannah Proclamation" :
I always say, " Everyone should have a Hannah" And if you get married here you will end up saying that too. Hannah Babineau is our excellent wedding coordinator. It was the consensus that she should be billed that way, but I actually don't like that title for her. It doesn't do her justice. It doesn't sound Hannah Babineau warm like she is, and it doesn't sound fun like she is. When I think of Hannah and what she does for our couples here, I think of words like sister, friend, hand holder, and supporter.... your champion, your guide, your go-to-gal, yes and even sometime your therapist! You can sum up the role she plays in our weddings by the stack of thank you notes that come to us addressed to Hannah. And I mean these are not the stock thank-you photos...these are hand written and thoughtful notes about what she meant to them and their wedding. Most couples don't know how much work a wedding can be. The couples that get married here never have to find out..Hannah will make sure of that. She is one of the best reasons to get married here. I couldn't do it without her and neither should you! If you notice this photo of her it looks like there is a halo over her head.....ummm..need I say more? xoxoxoxox

Wedding Wire Reviews ...


Planning Your Wedding Should Not Always Be Serious!

So here is a little comic relief, courtesy of Saturday Night Live.
We think it’s hilarious.
Hopefully none of your Dad’s will act like this!

  The Barns    

The Stone Mountain Arts Center boasts two beautiful timber frame barns. Both are available year round for your function. Both are heated and air conditioned.

The Maine Hall...
The golden framed main room and concert hall has a raised stage back dropped by a beautiful stand of windows ... perfect for a ceremony as well as the rest of your days activities from dinner to dancing. The Main Hall Balcony also has table seating for 50…a crow’s nest view to your beautiful day!


Quisisana Barn

The Quisisana Barn ... This is usually the cocktail hour barn
This is literally the party barn.

Our 200 year old antique barn with vintage decor and lighting, bar, and cozy bays for fun options like a photo room, martini bay, appetizer bays, or a nice place to sit for Grandma :>) Also a big middle aisle to mingle. This is usually where your reception will begin!

The Green Room...  

Green Room This is where all the stars get ready, and you are no different....comfy couches, bathroom, shower, iron, steamer, mirrors, ...anything to make you look your best for your special day...oh, and a pool table!

Nothing like a game of pool to work out those pre-wedding jitters! (please keep in mind the party is upstairs....this room is just for gettin' ready!)

Destination Weddings          

We do them all the time. Some couples we have not seen till the day of the wedding!!! We'll take the work and worry out of planning a destination wedding away. We will help you with every detail from flowers, photographer, cake, ceremony, and reception to lodging, your rehearsal, and local transportation as needed. Don't forget ... we have a Hannah!

If you or your family is from away... we'll help you with all the arrangements.
Not living here should not scare you off from getting married here at this special place. Most of our couples do not live locally. We can work that out for you. We work with lots of local inns right nearby that we can work with to arrange a special weekend for you. Maybe stay at a nearby inn, have the rehearsal dinner, an after wedding party, and big hangover breakfast. It’s really nice to have everyone in one place to gather ... it's a great time to catch up with family and friends you have not seen for awhile, they enjoy a little getaway and time with you, and you get a start on your honeymoon ... so think about that and then just bus to us! If you give us the number of people, how many nights etc, we can work on it for you. We can suggest a few bus companies for your wedding day.

Winter Weddings          

Stone Mountain Winter Wedding VideoWe are open all year long of course, but I would humbly say we do a wicked awesome winter wedding. I could tell you all about it, but this beautiful video of photos taken by Andy Duback of Duback Photography tells the whole story.

Sweet kids, Sarah and Chad celebrated their big day in February of 2013. Andy shot from beginning to end..starting with the dressing room!!!

The couple ordered just the right amount of snow and mother nature did not disappoint. Grab a kleenex and watch how heir day unfolds.

Wedding Packages          
  Weddings at the Stone Mountain Arts Center
As you know we are a music venue first and foremost. But we do host a select group of weddings each year. Folks who might be looking for a special experience other than the typical barn or function hall weddings.

We have two timber frame buildings. One is over 200 years old is full of vintage decor, and the other is our concert hall with a grand stand of windows and stage and lighting ... perfect for the back drop of your big day.

Stone Mountain Wedding Package
We only book a few weddings a year, and give up concert dates to do it.
Soooo...We have to have a minimum of 100 paid guests.

You are welcome to book with fewer guests, but a minimum of 100 paid is still required whether you reach that with your guest list or not. And we want to do your wedding justice, so we prefer to keep the numbers to around 150. If you have a band that needs our stage, maximum would be 140. All is worth a discussion and depends on the time of year.

To help with finances, we offer an Early Bird Special right now that discounts your wedding a big 10% if half the estimated cost of your wedding is paid in at the time of booking. That could help with a tight budget.

$210.00 per person includes ...

* Use of both halls
* Use of our Green Room for getting ready
* Use of all tables and chairs and furniture
* Use of Linens (ivory and a variety of novelty cloths)

Addtional items:

Typical SMAC Wedding Schedule          

As a result of hosting many weddings, we have found that this schedule sample of a typical SMAC Wedding is most enjoyable for the bride, groom, family and all their guests.

4:00: Ceremony in the Maine Room
Cocktail and apps reception and photos follow in the Quisisana Barn. Your guests will be well taken care of while you take your photos.
5:30 - 6:00: Guests invited back into the Maine Room for dinner. After dinner we roll the buffet out of the room and your dance floor appears in under a minute. Our crew could work at Nascar!
10:00: Time to go home....or plan an after party!

  If we do not have an event the night before your wedding, you are welcome to do a rehearsal in the Maine Hall. If there is an event please plan on rehearsing earlier in the day usually 3 to 4:00. Hannah will do a walk through with you. By the way....she will never make you wonder what comes next! She is an excellent facilitator!
Food & Beverage Details          
The Food:
We refer to our food as Gourmet Comfort Food.....if you want popovers and Wellington, we are probably not the place for you....but if you want some simple, fun, yummy, really pretty, fresh food we are really good at that. I like to say it's like a dinner party at my house only way more people. I hate those banquet chaffing dishes and such. I like vintage glassware, and parties and tin, and ...yes my stuff is vintage, and so am I!! !We are all about color and taste...we will not stand a crustacean on a plate to look back at you. But the platter of food that comes out will definitely make you smile. I like to have you fill out a form that will tells me what you like, what your guests like, any dietary restriction, etc. It is really important to me that your menu reflect you. I rarely do the same menu twice, although we do have some favorites like our Wedding Ravioli and our Maple Bacon Steak Tips that many of our couples have chosen among lots of other options.

And that is something we love to do...give you lots of options. We generally do buffets, so we can have multiple entrees and satisfy all diets and palates. WE will do family style upon request and everything is up for discussion. I hate to say no, but I will say no to anything I think we cannot do well. Fair?

Stone Mountain Arts Center Liquor Laws ...
We are licensed to serve beer and wine and spirits. Again, we choose to serve hard liquor at our discretion. No outside liquor may be brought in or leave the premises..this can get us in a lot of trouble!. Drinking outside the building or in your vehicles is also a no-no. Please keep the party inside. In other words we want you to have a good time, but not at the cost of your loved ones and our license. All Maine laws still apply.....even in the country, especially in the country. Our country roads are a challenge as it is. It is our strong suggestion that you hire shuttles or arrange for designated drivers so that all of you can enjoy your special day safely. If you have underagers please let them know they can ruin your night by drinking illegally.....and if you have guests who look young, make sure they bring ID's... everyone looks ten years old to me now! Basically it is your job to inform your guests of our policies, so the day goes off without a hitch......except of course for you gettin' hitched!
Stone Mountain Appetizers

  • Payments. 25% payments are expected to be paid in incriments before the weddin g and final payment is to be settled before the wedding day. Final numbers are due the Monday before your wedding day and your total cost will based on those numbers.

  The best part of having a wedding is getting the thank you notes.

Our couples become part of our SMAC family. We know when they have babies and graduaations..we hear about their trips and their triumphs...we see them at shows on their anniversaries, and gatherings with their family. I guess what I am trying to say, is weddings are very personal for us, and we hope they are for you too. We have definitely been moved by many of our wedding relationships. Click here to read some of out thank yous and even a really sweet little Poem one of our favorite Dads wrote to us after their daughter's wedding.
Note from the Owner

I'm auditioning you too ya know!!! That might sound funny, but I really want this to be a good experience for you. If I sense that we can't make you happy, I will not take your hard earned money. Frankly I think you should all elope, save your money and put a down payment on a house.!!!! But I guess if you're reading this, that is already out of the question.

Sooo, hope to hear from you and best wishes for a new future together.
