Environmental and Social Responsibility Matter To Us
Beyond a beautiful space, we understand that our guests are looking for responsible businesses where they feel comfortable spending their resources. Events at Hemlock Springs has been built from the ground up in such a way that we minimize our impact on our surroundings. We have incorporated green building design in our facility to naturally provide temperature regulation so as to reduce the amount of energy used to heat and cool the building. Everything from the direction the windows face, to the exact depth of concrete poured for the floors was taken into careful consideration.
We Thought of Everything
With a nearly year-round breeze, our veranda was designed for comfort with ceiling fans and beautiful vistas. No need for your guests to melt in the summer heat sitting through the ceremony either. Our stunning Hemlock Grove ceremony space has been perfectly situated beneath mature Hemlocks and Big Leaf Magnolias that produce large silky, white blooms. Even on the hottest summer day, this area is a cool oasis. The added benefit to the shade is no awful squinting in your wedding pictures and with the carefully groomed foliage, there’s just enough gentle natural light to make your pictures shine.
