Nestled in Waterford, Maine, The Hive Farm & Wedding Barn is an idyllic retreat for weddings and events. The property is owned by Eric Braciska who operates another three properties with the assistance of his talented team. They provide escapes into the countryside for those hoping to honor their love immersed in nature and have done so for over five years. They enjoy seeing love birds celebrate in their own individual ways, collaborating with couples as they mark their moment in a way fitting to them.
