Simplistic Elegance for a Fairy Tale Wedding
My daughter had a vision of her fairy tale wedding. We searched for the perfect venue to provide that fairy tale and as soon as we visited Powder Major’s Farm we knew it was what would fulfill her vision. The barn provided a rustic but simplistic elegant atmosphere complete with farm tables, antique chandeliers, and stain glass windows. The venue allows the wedding party to add their own touches, which for us were flickering tea candles in glass lanterns and table runners made with simple real greens. The magical day began with a ceremony facing the beautiful fields of the farm that could not be compared to any other venue we visited. The backdrop of the barn and the fields made for a picture perfect wedding album. The center aisle open dance floor that we chose ran almost the full length of the barn which allowed all of our guests to easily join the dance floor from their tables, which made for a dance filled night. We ended the night sending the new couple out under sparklers under the stars. For my daughter and her new husband no other venue could have provided what they have since described as “the best day ever”. We highly recommend Powder Major’s Farm in Madbury NH.Sent on 03/14/2019
