Hardy Farm Wedding: Hanna & Mike

On June 6th, 2015, Mike and Hanna wed at the Hardy Farm on the most beautiful New England day I can remember.  A rainy front moved out and skies cleared all week leading up to Saturday.  Near Boston, Hanna and Mike are chefs full time.  Surrounding themselves and their guests with quality food, good music and many many stories, the wedding felt more like a family reunion.  It was everything you would find revisiting your favorite restaurant.   Hanna was one of the happiest brides.  There was never a moment where she was not smiling or laughing.  That energy exuded onto everyone else; people were all walking around with smiles on their faces.  Amazing what a little smile can do.  The ceremony was held at the Woodland Chapel at the Hardy Farm in Fryeburg, Maine followed by dinner in their beautiful sailcloth tent and dancing in the barn.  White Mountain Cider Company catered a three course family style meal.  It’s a great way for guests to mingle and share a meal together.  Before dusk fell, we were able to drive down the road to a wonderful outlook to the White Mountains for the sunset.  Time and time again, couples thoroughly enjoy this calm, peaceful moment together, even if it’s only for a few minutes.  And even if the mosquitoes are really, really bad.  Back at the Hardy Farm, guests were already dancing in the barn to Hanna’s dad’s high school band.  This band ROCKED.  They were awesome.  Hanna’s dad, Stephen, sang Mike and Hanna’s first dance song and guests all night were jumping in and taking turns playing drums and singing.  It was a truly special wedding.  Thank you two for having Scott and I photograph it.  We both felt like we had known you both and your family and friends forever.  May you never forget this day.
