Beautiful venue and provided excellent service. We loved the "play room" where we could try out different linens and centerpieces. Because they set up the tables/linens we saved money on our catering bill. The venue was not cheap...but we also chose to have our wedding on a Saturday during the summer. If you are able to afford this place it is worth it.

The Gate House was an absolutely perfect venue for my wedding. The staff is amazing and there is so much included in the price while still allowing the bride to chose her own caterer and alcohol. It is also a really beautiful place for pictures especially in the summer.

We chose Lionsgate for many reasons: the ceremony space and reception space are in the same place, the linens, flatwear, glasswear and centerpiece vases are all included, and the flexablity of the staff. They helped us pick our vendors, did our invitations, allowed to come "play" with linens and centerpiece ideas whenever we wanted, and were absolutely amazing on our wedding day. LeAnn, our day-of coordinator was on point and helped smooth out some of the issues during set-up.
We had to pay for an extra hour of set-up time which we didn't really like but when we showed up on the wedding day there were issues with the plumbing. The owners addresses the problems right away and had someone fixing it ASAP. The water and restrooms were ready to go right as we were inviting guests in from cocktail hour. Needless to say because of this mishap, they didn't charge us for the set up time, and allowed us to stay an hour after our scheduled time (including paying our caterer and DJ to stay an additional hour). I am very thankful for LeAnn and know she worked her butt off to make sure our day was perfect. She also stayed all the way until the end of the event which is rather rare. I would highly recommend Lionsgate Event Center!

LOVED the Gatehouse at Lionsgate Center. Leanne J. was our wedding planner and everything came together beautifully.
I suggest going with the vendor package. It really helped that our vendors knew the venue and staff.

Absolutely, beyond grateful that we booked our wedding here! I was a little peeved our site coordinator called in sick the day of our wedding and didn't leave notes for those that took over- but other than that- Alex and Lisa saved the day! Alex was super patient and super helpful and Lisa was always there to help out. I loved the vision the owners had for the venue and really appreciate all the little details they helped out with- The Vendor Package that they offer saved me time, money and effort when planning! I'd recommend any one to have an event there or get married there and stay in a suite! They are amazing! :)

The Lionsgate Center venues are a perfect spot for a wedding! If you go there be sure to work with Amy Wherry as she is by far and away the best member of the staff. Other members are quite nice but do try to steer clear of the owner who isn't quite as professional as the team members. Working with Amy was a joy from a planning perspective and the day of the wedding it was wonderful to have a person who was as dedicated as we were to ensuring that the guests had a great time. The advantage of using the Gatehouse package was that I did not have to do a bunch of individual negotiations on price. And each of the vendors cared very much about being used by the Gatehouse again since it is such a perfect venue. In addition the onsite Liquor store was very convenient and made sure that we had the absolute right amount of alcohol for the evening. The other advantage of using the Gatehouse was that I did not have to worry about having the right linens or having the tables set... etc. They really were a full service organization. I do believe the value could be a wee bit better and that statement comes from having shopped 7 different sites before deciding on the Gatehouse. Again once the decision was made to go with Gatehouse, and once I had met Amy Wherry, absolutely everything was a joy and she was fabulous to work with so by all means for the best experience, try to get her! I would use this organization again in a heartbeat if I knew that I could work beginning to end with Amy!

The site is beautiful and the staff is great! You will not be dissapointed to host your event here!
The only drawback is you are charged for anything that is missing/broken/etc - which in the beginning I didn't think was a big deal. At the end, we were charged for lots of missing glasses and wax on tablecloths - have someone in your group be in charge of making sure everything is accounted for before you leave. You will enjoy the venue for sure! Amy is great!

We were married in January and I wanted to have the ceremony outside if the weather was appropriate. The staff at the Dove House were very flexible in making arrangements for either scenario and let us wait up to the morning of the wedding to make our final decision to hold it outside. Everything turned out perfectly and I couldn't have been happier with this facility.

We were married at the Lionsgate Center Gatehouse. The moment we saw this venue we fell in love with it. The mansion style was perfect for our vintage wedding and it was so elegant and intimate. We received good quality customer service where all of our millions of questions were easily answered by our wedding coordinator. One of the best features of this event center is that it includes in the price your tables, chairs, linens, and flatware. You also have an assortment of centerpieces to choose from (which saved me a bunch of money on ordering vases that I would have no idea to do with afterwards). Our wedding ran very smoothly, and our event coordinator was great to work with. This site also has amazing places to take pictures and our photos came out beautifully.

One bit of advice, definitely make sure you read the packet of “What to Expect” thoroughly. Our one hiccup with this vendor was that a last minute event was scheduled over our set rehearsal time (I was notified 4 days before our rehearsal). It does say in the packet that this can happen, but it was extremely stressful and frustrating especially since our families were coming in from out of town and we had limited flexibility for the rehearsal. Lionsgate was able to accommodate us by having our rehearsal in the other house at the same time and date, but we had to fight for this option as it was not presented to us at first.

Otherwise we had nothing but good experiences at Lionsgate and would definitely recommend that you check out their venue and what they have to offer.
