For a ceremony – or a reception, for that matter – the expansive Skye Lawn is a great choice and overlooks McLemore Cove and Pigeon Mountain, while the bier garden can host smaller events.

Nearby, McLemore’s event pavilion offers guests a covered space and an open-air terrace where guests are free to walk the grounds. A stacked-stone fireplace provides a warm and rustic atmosphere and is best enjoyed during the spring or fall.

Back at the clubhouse, The Creag, a cliff-edge restaurant and bar, draws inspiration from Scotland and delivers even more old-world charm. This is an ideal spot to catch a glimpse of a sweeping sunset from the space’s outdoor terrace, which is dotted with several large fire pits for an inviting aesthetic.
