Granite Ridge Estate and Barn Wedding | Norway, Maine : Kylie + Dave

Weddings

Granite Ridge Estate and Barn Wedding

Ten years in the making. Kylie and Dave (along with their beautiful baby girl) chose the stunning venue of Granite Ridge Estate & Barn as the backdrop for their wedding. If you haven’t had a chance to look into this Maine venue, check out their feature in Brides Magazine featuring my photography as well. We were gifted with gorgeous weather in this late September wedding. Scroll to the end to check out their epic sunset – just WOW.

September Wedding Features

There were a lot of gorgeous elements to this wedding. Hair and makeup were provided by Sarah Depault and Noel Sarazin (their contact information is below under featured vendors). A tastefully done plum lip accented Kylie’s face and was perfect for the rich early autumn wedding. The dress fit her like a glove but that’s what you would expect from a Pronovias design. Florals were fresh and beautifully arranged by Sweet Pea Floral Designs based in Maine. The barn as well as the ceremony space were given fresh bursts of colour and foliage featuring their work. DJ Ross was excellent at communicating with the wedding party and vendors to ensure things went on schedule and to plan. The catering was provided by 111 Maine Catering and was incredible. We got to try some of their tasty entrees and given the space they were working in, they were able to create gourmet meals with excellent presentation. The team of Mike Picard Motion Pictures were awesome to work alongside with. I can’t wait to see their video and will share when available.
