If you are looking for your venue to have a Maine Barn wedding you are in the right place. As you probably already know if you are reading this post, Maine is an enchanting place. I fell in love when I moved here site unseen in 2014. There is an old fashioned charm left here that has been built over just about everywhere else on the east coast. The landscape is still so open, and it is dotted with old architecture. Buildings and especially barns from hundreds of years ago, are everywhere. Some are lovingly restored, some have fallen into disrepair, but still the beauty is abundant.
All of these barns provide unique venue options for engaged couples looking to have a Maine Barn wedding! Here I am featuring some of the loveliest barns to celebrate your union. Disclaimer: There are many, many wonderful Maine Barn Venues in Maine. These are the ones I have gotten to photograph extensively and as I shoot more I will add them to this list!
Garden Gate at Haley Farm // Sebago, Maine
I love Garden Gate at Haley Farm. From the color palette to all the unique amenities they offer. The wonderful owners Sarah and Rich have done such a beautiful job restoring the old farmhouse and barn. They have exquisite options for your ceremony- in a clearing in the middle of the forest as well as a stunning open field to the side of the farmhouse. There is a wonderful firepit area and manicured gardens for outdoor cocktail hours, and the house is available for you to get ready and stay with your closest family and friends. They offer valet parking and even custom signs made on site by Sarah.
Caswell Wedding Farm + Barn //Gray, Maine
Caswell Farm and Wedding Barn has been in the Caswell Family for three generations.The historic property is a wonderful space with the house available as accomodations, the rustic barn available for ceremonies and cocktail hour, a ceremony site, and a great field for a tent. Vines grow up the barn giving it the most nestled in magical aesthetic. To make your wedding planning easy, they offer catering and a complete bar service as well. This is a funny mention, but worth noting… the property boasts lovely outdoor bathrooms permanently installed and when you wash your hands and look in the mirror, you see yourself in the woods. Very enchanting.
Shady Lane Farm // New Gloucester, Maine
Shady Lane Farm is an idyllic Maine farm. The property provides the classic farmhouse to get ready in, the 19th century barn for dining, and a stunning outdoor ceremony site in a field with grape vines climbing up the arbor. The farm offers sixty acres of woods and fields which are exquisite. When I shot an August wedding at Shady Lane Farm the golden rod was in bloom and made for the most romantic walk. It is only 35 minutes from Portland which makes it an easy destination to get to, yet it feels peaceful and makes to a classic country wedding.
Edgehill // Sedgwick, Maine
Edgehill is a private home open for renting via airbnb. It is a very rustic space with a full house, barn, large yard with ceremony site, and access to the beach across the street (great for photos). This venue is perfect for the DIY bride who wants to have a homey, earthy gathering. I loved capturing the natural beauty of the property for an intimate 30 person wedding. If you want a rustic, coastal Maine wedding consider Edgehill. Go to my offbeat bride feature to see more photos.
