We got married at Granite Ridge on November 02, 2019 and we could not be happier with our selection of this venue! The communication leading up to the event with Gabe was excellent. It was helpful yet not overwhelming which was much appreciated. Granite Ridge is a "do it yourself vendor venue" meaning you will have a good amount of work ahead of you booking and communicating with all of your vendors (unless of course you hire a wedding planner). That said, Granite Ridge does offer lots of support with questions and a curated listed of vendors. We used some of their recommended vendors but also found a lot of our own which is the route I would recommend as some of our favorite vendors we found separately. As a disclaimer there though I am fairly local to the area so this route my not work for you if you are planning from out of town.Sent on 11/16/2019
The weekend of our wedding there was some staff available as needed but we were mostly left to do as we'd like which was the perfect balance. The house on the property and the full Thursday-Sunday exclusive access were a big selling point for us in selecting this venue as it allowed us to also host our Friday night dinner at the venue. I can't give enough praise to this venue and its owners, absolutely fantastic!
Granite Ridge Estate & Barn's reply:Thanks for the kind words Tonya, it was an absolute pleasure hosting you guys! We hope you come back to visit soon!

Amazing venue and lodging!
After seeing many barn venues in the area, we knew instantly when we arrived at Granite Ridge that this was our dream venue. The fact that there was lodging for us and our wedding party made it the perfect choice for a beautiful and private weekend. We enjoyed a long weekend on the property which was amazing. The barn itself is beautiful, and the views throughout the property are absolutely stunning! The amenities in the estate are perfect for making yourself at home, and there is plenty of privacy to be able to settle in and enjoy yourself! We were also able to have our engagement photos taken on site which was such a treat!Sent on 10/15/2019

Words can’t describe how amazing Granite Ridge and the whole team is to work with. Stephanie and I were married on 10-5-2019; we were the 100th wedding.
We live in RI, but love Maine so much and knew we needed to be married someplace that fit us. I started searching locations that were either very rustic, working farms, fun barns with personality to unique locations. This is when I can across Granite Ridge.
The day we first went to look at the venue, we arrived in Norway a bit early and decided to take a walk around. Miki soon arrived and took us up to her property. From the moment we met her she had a personality that made us feel comfortable. She brought us to the barn first and before we could even get out of her car, Steph was determined this was the place for us to be married. Walking into the barn, the view of the mountains just takes you over. It is a very simple barn, but the chandeliers make it feel so special. We took a walk down to the ceremony space and knew this was where we wanted to say I DO. We loved the intimate feel of the space encapsulated by the woods.
Miki took us to the estate house, and wow is all I have to say. During our weekend stay we utilized all that the house had to offer. From the hot tub to the amazing wood grill they have. We sat in front of the fireplace from morning to night laughing, having a great time. Waking up to my wife the morning after our wedding with views of the clouds still below the mountains with speckles of red, yellow and orange trees was something I will never forget.
The whole time working with Gabe was amazing; I cannot speak more highly of him. He listened and answered any questions we had quickly. It was great getting to learn about his hot sauce company, The Spicy Shark. The Reaper one will make anyone happy who loves spicy things.
From the views to the hospitality, Granite Ridge is a one of a kind venue that any couple will fall in love with.Sent on 11/06/2019
Granite Ridge Estate & Barn's reply:Andrea & Stephanie - Thank you so much for the kind words! It was an absolute pleasure hosting you both! We hope you come visit us again soon!
Every time I have worked with granite ridge it was perfection. The grounds are beautiful the view is breathtaking. They are professional and extremely well versed on weddings. First class venue.
Granite Ridge provided an amazing experience for the couple whose wedding I photographed in October. They are responsive and communication is superb. I definitely would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue and I'm really looking forward to working at Granite Ridge again in the future!
Granite Ridge Estate has something you can't get anywhere else in Maine: a mountain top view that will take your breath away coupled with warm and wonderful owners who genuinely want to make your wedding day perfect! If you're looking to impress your guests and treat them to a Maine experience like no other then look no further than this exquisite Estate that mixes elegance with rustic (think chandeliers and rough hewn wood). Seriously, if the view doesn't knock their socks off, the interior of this grand barn will!
