MAGICAL BARN WEDDINGS
The barn, built in 1844, is framed with massive hand hewn beams, secured with wooden pegs. The barn will be well decorated with an eclectic assortment of antiques, original oil paintings, stained glass and seasonal floral decorations; our goal is that our 'decorating budget' will eliminate the need to include any 'decorating expense' in your budget. The description of Spring Hill Manor used most frequently by Brides and guests is, "Magical".
The gardens at Spring Hill are designed to resemble 'old world' estate gardens. The garden walks and walls are constructed with granite cobblestone, recovered from the streets of Baltimore (circa 1700's). The garden plantings have been selected to provide color, texture and interest in every season, and fairies, fountains, and antiques hide in the garden foliage to delight your guests. For our Fall events, we bring in truck loads of pumpkins to add a 'harvest' feel to the grounds.
The format for most of our weddings is for the Wedding Ceremony to be an outside 'Garden Ceremony'. Typically, the ceremony is performed atop a small stone wall, which provides a perfect stage for easy 'line of sight' for all of the guests and your photographer. The Bridal couple will have their first 'married kiss' inside the frame of our 'Moon Gate', draped in the foliage of wisteria vines. The 'mythology' attached to 'Moon Gates' is, that a marriage performed under a moon gate will last forever. If weather should preclude an outdoor wedding, the Ceremony will be moved indoors, where guests will enjoy the nuptials in an equally elaborate Barn setting, 'dinner theater' style.
