As the late summer days wane and are becoming noticeably shorter, we can feel the transition to fall coming with all its color and warmth creating a completely different wedding backdrop for fall weddings.  The change also gives us an opportunity to reflect back on some of our favorite summer weddings at Hardy Farm.  Here’s one from July a couple of years ago which was shot by one of our favorite photographers.  We’d like to share it with our readers and remind everyone that we do still have one July weekend available next year!  Please reach out for details.

Katherine and Sam contacted me from Seattle as they were planning their summer wedding in Maine. I met them last Thursday at their rehearsal dinner and they were as sweet as ever. I knew their wedding would be a breeze!

Friends and family from all over the US came to celebrate the lovely couple at Hardy Farm in Fryeburg. It was the perfect summer day – bright sun, blue sky and a slight breeze. Their ceremony was tucked away in the woods with beautiful light shining through the trees. During their vows, I don’t think there was a dry cheek in the whole crowd. The night wrapped up with a huge crew on the dance floor, pie for dessert, and so many amazing moments to capture. It was hard to choose which photos to include because I’ve never seen such a happy group of people! I hope you enjoy this little recap below!
