Vendors We Love

We believe that who we choose to support says a lot about who we are. That’s why we love to support other small businesses who we believe provide exceptional service, quality work, and are just all around great people.

We don’t believe in “kickbacks” and we don’t receive compensation for recommending any of the following vendors. We recommend them because we truly believe you’ll love them as much as we do 🙂 

We have done the hard work for you finding some of the best vendors in the area. You can be confident hiring professionals from this list.

Fall wedding at Hemlock Springs in the Red River Gorge, KY


sharing our hearts
Fall wedding in the Red River Gorge


Skip and Liz are the heart behind Hemlock Springs. They grew up visiting the Red River Gorge for weekend adventures with their families that ignited a lifelong love for the area and a passion for the outdoors.

Throughout their years of visits, they never happened to meet until the day a mutual friend set them up while rock climbing. They fell in love and decided to settle down in the place that drew them together- building the ceremony site for their own wedding.

Sharing their home and passion for such a special place with others on one of the most memorable days of their lives has brought them full-circle and allows them to preserve their piece of the Red River Gorge.
