We were pleased to find out that one of our bridesmaids is a fashion blogger and featured Hardy Farm in one of her posts. We have included her review of her weekend in Fryeburg, Maine.

Liz Miller, was a bridesmaid at Jennifer Champney and Tristan Irish’s wedding on June 30th, 2018. Being in the bridal party, she was able to see every inch of the property; The Barn, The Lodge, The House, and Our Sailcloth Tent.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being in my cousin’s wedding at Hardy Farm in Fryeburg, Maine. I have to admit I wasn’t sure what to expect when she said she was renting a farm dating to the 1750’s for the weekend and that we would be staying on it. Having spent two nights there, I can tell you that the setting is nothing less than beautiful. The farmhouse we stayed in made my white chippy paint lovin’ heart flutter and the grounds were just lovely. I got up early one morning and took some pictures of the grounds. I wanted to share them in case any of my readers are from New England and looking for venues for a wedding, family reunion, or other function. Or heck, just for some good ol’ farmhouse inspiration! 
Since I was a guest, I can’t provide specifics on her experience with pricing, or the management, I can only speak to my experience staying there. This is really just meant to show you some of the cute spaces that the property contained.
So the inside was adorable, but honestly, it’s the outside space and the barn that make this property what it is. They have a courtyard where my cousin hosted cocktail hour, and a big fire pit. Edison lights go throughout both of these spaces. It was great because guests that weren’t into dancing could hang out by the fire and chat. There was also space for cornhole and other lawn games. Finally, the garden gave her a great spot to take her “first look” pictures and added a nice backdrop throughout the weekend.

Beautiful, right? How amazing is that chandelier? I didn’t get a great picture, but in one the photos you can see horseshoes. Every couple that gets married there gets a horseshoe to sign. They also rent the property for other events like reunions. I’ve included the website since as a guest I don’t have information for you on pricing, but if you are in the New England area, I would recommend checking it out. Even if you aren’t planning a wedding, you can get some great inspiration just looking at the property.
