A Natural, Rustic Wedding at The Greenwood Manor Inn in Harrison, Maine
After hitting an unexpected bump in the road during the planning process — having to find a new venue just three months before they planned to say “I do,” Laura Reid (22 and a cosmetologist) and Jacob Dubois (23 and an excavator) found the venue of their dreams in The Greenwood Manor Inn in Harrison, Maine. The quaint inn with its lush, natural setting provided a striking backdrop for the laid-back affair and endless inspiration for the outdoor-loving couple. “One of our favorite things about our venue was the whole wedding party and parents were able to stay together the night before and the night of the wedding,” says Laura. The day started with an intimate ceremony in the Greenwood Manor Inn’s beautiful gardens, where Laura and Jacob exchanged heartfelt vows under a wisteria-draped wedding arbor. A tented cocktail hour and reception followed, where potted succulents, antiqued lanterns, and birch accents infused the evening with an organic, rustic vibe. Guests enjoyed a decadent dinner of barbecue favorites, followed by plenty of fun-filled festivities including dancing, bonfires and lawn games like corn hole. “There was something to fit all of our guests’ personalities,” says Laura.
