Frequently Asked Questions
Do you allow outside vendors?
We believe that Hemlock Springs couples should have the freedom to create the exact event they’ve always dreamed of right down to the very last detail. While we have plenty of local vendors we can recommend, you are free to choose all of your own vendors as long as they comply with our terms and conditions and can provide us with their certificate of insurance.
Vendors without insurance, will need to be added to your event insurance policy as additional insured.
- Do you allow sparklers?
- Because we are a Red River Gorge wedding venue, located so near a national forest and a state park, we cannot allow open flames which includes: sparklers, fireworks, bonfires etc.
- Do you allow pets?
- We are happy to welcome your domestic pets to be a part of your wedding day, so long as our pet policy is adhered to and the pet fee is paid in advance.
- Do you provide parking?
- We provide up to 75 parking space free of charge. We advise couples to have guests carpool. The bridal party can also be driven to the ceremony site, and we encourage you to select a vehicle or vehicles and driver/s ahead of time. That vehicle/s, will have a designated parking space in front of the building just for the bridal party.
Frequently asked questions
This depends on the package you purchase, but typically, our most popular package (The Hemlock) allows for up to 10 hours of time total with one hour complimentary the day before for rehearsal at the ceremony site. You will have access to the dressing rooms before your ceremony, unless additional getting ready time is agreed upon. Additional day-of time can be purchased should you need more time for set up.
Can I set up the day before my wedding?
With the exception of our Unbridled Luxury Package, all other packages are booked by the hour/day. If you feel you need additional time the day before your event to set up, you can contact us 60 days prior to your wedding to purchase additional time. If we have not scheduled another event the day before your wedding, you can purchase additional hours at that time. We cannot guarantee hours will be available for purchase until 60 days prior to your event.
