Lindsay and Mike were married on the most beautiful July day at Marianmade Farm this summer and I am thrilled to be able to share these stunning photos from Vermont-based photographer, Christina Bernales. This wedding was surely a highlight of my 2017 season – not only are Lindsay and Mike a wonderfully sweet couple, their vision for a colorful, romantic wedding on a lavender farm was spot-on! I think Christina did a truly remarkable job capturing the day in all its beauty and I cannot thank her enough for sharing her talents.

Maeve & Kent were married at Marianmade Farm on a beautiful, warm September day. I loved working with their early fall color palette which even allowed me to use hardy fall vegetables throughout the florals. Maeve & Kent were an incredibly kind couple to work with and gathered a fantastic team, including my daughter, Meredith Perdue, Wendy of Dragonfly Services, and the tasty Damariscotta River Grill restaurant.
A special thanks to Meredith for the lovely photos below!
Wedding season begins for me tomorrow, so I thought I would share a few highlights from a June wedding last year that is near and dear to my heart – Kelly & Devin’s Marianmade Farm Wedding. These two were a dream to work with, from start to finish, and they made my day by coming out to Alna to take photos in the lupine fields behind our home! The lupine will soon be blooming and I know that every time I look out over those purple fields, I will always think of this wonderful couple.
A special thanks to Henry + Mac for sharing their amazingly beautiful photos and another great big thank you to Sarah of Daisies & Pearls and Trillium Caterers – working alongside vendors such as these makes my job so much more enjoyable!

I am so excited to share the links to our farmhouse vacation rental here on our property in Alna. Over the last year of owning our home on the Sheepscot River, we have loved sharing this farmhouse, just up the hill from our own residence, with family and friends, vacationing in Maine. We look forward to sharing this unique property with travelers from all over now, thanks to our vacation rental team at Turnkey.
Please have a look at our listings on VRBO, Home Away, and Turnkey for many more photos and information about the property.
It was a near impossible task to pick only a handful of Henry + Mac’s vibrant, light-filled photographs for this blog post. Adrea & Raghu’s Marianmade Farm wedding this past summer was a treat for all of us involved. The details, planned perfectly by Sarah of Daisies & Pearls, the blending of cultural traditions, and the moments captured by so wonderfully by Henry + Mac made this wedding a highlight of my 2016 wedding season. I hope you enjoy the selection photos from this lively, festive celebration!

What a fantastic year it was! 2016 was my first wedding season in Maine that I no longer served as the owner/operator at Marianmade Farm. This allowed me the freedom and flexibility to concentrate on doing what I love the most – flowers. I was still lucky enough to provide the florals for a number of Marianmade couples and had a chance to work at some new-to-me venues and private residences throughout Maine as well. A special thanks to all of my 2016 couples and fellow vendors for making this such a memorable year.
The following are just a sample of my favorite images from some of last year’s weddings. Thanks for following along and best wishes to you all for 2017!

While the seats around our Thanksgiving table were few in number this year, I had a wonderful time setting the table for the occasion. I kept things simple on the table with greenery, succulents, and roses, and got a little more creative with peonies and thistle for an arrangement in the living room. In addition to a mid-day feast with our daughter, we took walks around the property with all three dogs, watched old home videos, and curled up on the couch for a movie night by the fire. Each year I realize how much we have to be thankful for, and after quite a few big changes this year, my heart is even fuller with gratitude than it was last year! I hope you all had wonderful holidays with those whom you love.
