Wedding Policies

Deposit and Payment

A non-refundable deposit is required for all weddings. The first non-refundable deposit of $1,000 is due up front in order to reserve the facility for a specific date. The second non-refundable payment of $1,000 will be due six months prior to your wedding date. Unless other arrangements are made ahead of time, Spring Hill requires final payment made by personal check, bank check or cash. Credit cards will not be accepted for final payment. If a personal check is used it must be received by the Sunday prior to your reception, only a bank check or cash will be accepted for final payment after that.

Minimums

Spring Hill requires a minimum bill charge for all wedding receptions. Contact us for more information about minimum charges.

Guarantees & Times

We must receive a firm guarantee a minimum of 10 days prior to your event. If by 7 days prior to your event we have not received your guarantee, Spring Hill reserves the right to use the highest estimated number of guests for your final count. No event may run for more than five hours, and no later than 12:00 midnight. Please note that Spring Hill does not guarantee exclusivity of grounds for on-premise weddings.

Decorating

All decorating must be done in a manner that insures no damage to the room or to any fixtures, tables, chairs, linens, glass and silverware. The room will be available for decorating no earlier than 9:00 am, unless other arrangements are agreed upon. In cases where the event takes place between 6:30 pm and 12:00 midnight the room will be available for decorating at 5:15pm.

Damages

The individual or group booking an event will be responsible for the repair or replacement of any damage caused to buildings, grounds, any equipment or linen.

DJ/Band Services

Spring Hill will provide DJs with one table and tablecloth, and access to power. All music, equipment, speakers, and extension cords are the responsibility of the DJ and or band. DJs and bands may set up 1 hour before the start of an event unless arrangements are made at least 3 days prior to the event to set up earlier. Set up will be in the designated area or in an area arranged by Spring Hill staff and the individual planning the event. Speakers must be set up next to DJ/band and no cords will be allowed to be run across walk or dance areas. Spring Hill staff may also limit the placement of speakers and or volume to be reduced to prevent disruption to the restaurant or other functions.

Under this license guests are not allowed to bring any alcoholic beverages onto Spring Hill property and that all liquor purchased at Spring Hill must be consumed within the building. We reserve the right to limit and control the amount of alcoholic beverages consumed by our guests. If these policies are not complied with Spring Hill reserves the right to ask offenders to leave the premise and to close the bar at any time. It is Spring Hill's policy to offer a last call for drinks 45 minutes prior to the end of any function.

Cancellations

Spring Hill's Policy is that deposits are non-refundable.

Ceremonies

You are welcome to hold your ceremony on our grounds, for no additional charge. Our beautiful grounds are comprised of 60 scenic acres of private land, nestled into the Maine countryside, far away from noise and traffic. Spring Hill is a peaceful, picturesque and rustic location for a storybook New England wedding.

The top of the hill features a rustic wedding trellis, and it and the surrounding area can be set up and/or decorated as you wish. And of course you're welcome to add special touches such as a horse-drawn carriage, musicians, tents, or other special arrangements.

Outdoor receptions can have an unlimited number of guests. Contact us to inquire about holding your ceremony or outdoor reception at Spring Hill.
