Opening just last year, Graystone Quarry has already won a Couples Choice Award from Wedding Wire and has become a very popular and unique wedding venue. Graystone Quarry sits on 76 private pristine acres of reclaimed abandoned rock quarry.
The property’s mountain lodge inspired architecture reflects the warm woods and stones present in the surrounding environment with state of the art event lighting, video and sound. All architecture is designed to utilize the property’s own native rock and wood to provide a natural transition from indoor to outdoor spaces.
Ceremonies take place in the Hillside Pavilion, with stone pillars made from quarry stone, soaring wood ceilings, and chandeliers. Three sides of slide-away glass doors show off the beautiful view, while ensuring year-round weatherproof comfort for your friends and family.
From the ceremony, guests take a short walk down to the waterfront Gathering Hall. It is the perfect refined rustic location for a reception. The large stone entry, personalized for your event, welcomes guests as they make their way to the main room. Soaring 30ft wood ceilings, mezzanine balcony, and the focal point of the space, a two story stone fireplace and double staircase make for an unforgettable entrance.
Slide-away glass doors on both mezzanine and ground levels open to a breathtaking two level courtyard with fireplace and generous seating. From here enjoy Moonshine Cove and Falls – a gorgeous lit quarry pond with a 20-foot waterfall. The courtyard is a perfect spot for drinks and appetizers, dessert, music, or simply fresh air overflow space to make your party one-of-a-kind.
