Hosting a rehearsal dinner or shower is a breeze with the venue’s private dining room, which is complete with large windows, flat-screen TVs, and a private veranda. With space for up to 22 guests, this part of the property allows brides and grooms access to an intimate space to spend time with family and friends.
On the big day, it’s an effortless transition from one of McLemore’s on-site houses to the ceremony space. These well-equipped homes can accommodate guests, and each contains its own living area, kitchen, and bathrooms to keep the bridal party comfortable.
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.
Couples will love that McLemore has numerous spots to socialize and keep the good times rolling, even after the event has drawn to a close. A short walk or drive back to one of McLemore’s luxurious homes is a cherry on top of what is sure to already be a great day.
