Conveniently located just one hour east from Lexington, Kentucky, we are close to a metropolitan area that provides high-end vendors, yet far enough to provide serenity and privacy.

Every detail from our impressive mortise and tenon Douglas Fir beams to our stunning chandeliers and impeccable views are sure to delight.

With sixteen-foot ceilings, high-end finishings, reclaimed materials and custom furniture and designs, your guests will notice the extra details that will set your wedding apart from others they’ve attended.

Beyond a beautiful space, we understand that our guests are looking for responsible businesses where they feel comfortable spending their resources. 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 also encourage our clients to consider sustainable materials when planning their special event. By working together, we can make our little corner of the planet a bit greener and cleaner.

About the founder,  Kelly.

Life has taken me to some amazing places so far - performing onstage at the Academy of Music, living and working in remote villages in Central America and West Africa, and fixing up 200-year-old homes in a beautiful waterfront community in Pennsylvania. In recent years I have been yearning for the serenity of open spaces, fresh air, and nature doing what it does best - grow and provide. So, I purchased Prancing Deer Farm and embarked on the journey of being a new farmer and venue owner. This is my little slice of heaven and I can't wait to share it with you on the future best day of your life!
