Summer Wedding at
The Greenhouse at Highland Farm
What’s better than a summer wedding in Maine? A summer wedding in a greenhouse in Maine. That’s right- you can have a wedding in a greenhouse, overlooking a gorgeous meadow, only a few miles away from Portland. This wedding at The Greenhouse at Highland Farm in Scarborough, Maine was something from a daydream.
The coolest part of the venue is the clear roof greenhouse which holds space for a large amount of wedding guests to dance and dine. The long reception tables featured bud vases with a mix of wildflowers and greenery hanging from the beams above, all designed and decorated by Of the Fields Floral Design. To go with the theme, each table setting had a packet of wildflower seeds. But the flowers don’t just stop there. The open sides of the greenhouse allow endless views of the gorgeous meadow, in full bloom. At night, you might even see some deer grazing in the field while you’re dinning under your flower canopy.
For their guests, the bride and groom lined up some killer catering, including a charcuterie spread from Bird & Co and what!?- tacos- from TACOCAT taco truck, which pulled up to the greenhouse. Good food and a good view? What a wedding to be a guest at.
The Greenhouse at Highland Farm Preserve also has a farmhouse type getting ready space for the bridal parties to enjoy, which made for a super easy pre-wedding timeline. Hair and makeup came right to the site, and the bride was able to relax with all her besties on the property.
As a Maine wedding photographer who enjoys the variety of venue types that Maine has to offer, we were beyond excited to shoot here. Since we’re big on honoring the nature around our client’s wedding venues, we optimized use of the meadow during the first look and couple’s portraits. We even got to shoot inside another active greenhouse on the property for the end of day couple’s session. Our film inspired, true to color editing allowed for the flower colors to shine through and preserved the feel of summertime forever.
Our favorite moment we captured might be when we stepped back at the end of the night and observed the greenhouse from afar. Lit up with string lights, set against a moody dark sky, it was a sight to see, and such a good representation of the whole wedding. Those are the candid moments that matter so much to us, and the ones we want to help capture for all of our clients.
