This barn is incredibly beautiful, it's what you imagine a barn wedding should be. The venue was fantastic and we worked with Black Tie Catering and Broadturn Farm to finish off the decor. It's a blank slate and the Barn Owner, Gina, is willing to accommodate your ideas of a dream wedding in Maine. What a time of our lives!Sent on 09/06/2016

First off, anyone who visits can see that the SLF grounds and barn are gorgeous! In addition, we loved working with the owner Gina through the year before our wedding. She was very accommodating after booking with letting us stop by and poke around, talk through rehearsal dinner options and vendors, etc. And that continued the day after the wedding, with helping us get things cleaned up when we were off to our vacation and had more on our plate than we realized. Also, she clearly takes pride in keeping the flowers blooming & her grass green! It will show in your photos :)Sent on 08/15/2016
