If you're dreaming of a beautiful barn for your wedding day, I'm breaking down the very best Barn Wedding Venues in Maine!
Hiring a photographer for your barn venue? Make sure they are skilled with off camera flash- They are tricky to light when the daylight is gone. I also love barns that aren't washed in browns- they can give off an orange hue in your photos.
Okay, let's get to the good stuff: my favourite barns! (Links to their websites in the title)
Cunningham Farm (circa 1877) is set in picturesque New Gloucester, Maine - located just North of Portland in Southern Maine. Cunningham Farm is primarily used as a wedding venue for estate weddings, barn weddings, and outdoor weddings.
With 90+ acres of land that includes three event barns, a farmhouse, a pond, a river, a meandering brook, rock walls, and a tree farm - complete with a white farm fence - there couldn’t be a more beautiful property to serve as a backdrop to your "Maine" event!
The best part about Cunningham Farm though is the pine forest paths. The light is incredible and it makes the most incredible portrait backdrop. Click the link for more photos.
Hardy Farm The barn at Hardy Farm is the perfect place to host your inspired Maine wedding reception or event. Nestled in the White Mountains, it's a four-season wedding venue features beautifully white-washed walls and elegant chandeliers. Outdoor tent and woodland chapel. I've photographed several weddings here and they are just so beautiful!
