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 museum like presentation, however, will not interfere with the casual, rustic mood of your event. The farmland surrounding the venue is tended by horse-drawn farm equipment (credit to my Amish neighbors) which, coupled with our country pond and the wildlife that it attracts, create a 'Currier and Ives', country ambiance for your day. 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; even our cobblestone has a historic connection - they were 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'. The 'Wedding Garden' is designed to keep our Brides hidden from the guest (and her betrothed) until she 'makes her entrance' on the granite walkway, perfectly framed, at the entrance, by the leafy umbrella of a weeping cherry tree. We provide the chairs for the Ceremony, and I will have arranged the chairs to accommodate your expected guests numbers. 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. At the 'wedding rock', 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.
Each wedding brings its unique personality and charm to our venue, but two elements are constant; Your Spring Hill Wedding will be anything but ordinary and it will be remembered by every one that attends as 'the best wedding ever'. (This is a bold boast; if you read our 'reviews', you will discover it is true.)
Most weddings include some guests that are traveling, needing hotel accommodations. There are three 'chain hotels' (Best Western, Holliday Inn, Comfort Inn) located 11,12 and 13 miles (respectively) from the venue. Local 'shuttle' companies are sometimes engaged to transport hotel guests to and from the farm.
