A Rustic Outdoor Wedding at the Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine
Christine Sullivan (36 and a higher education donor-relations professional) and Patrick Sullivan (36 and a small-business owner) had an intimate wedding ceremony in New York, but still wanted to celebrate their marriage with their family and friends in Maine. “Hosting a party in Maine was important, since this is where we have started our life together, and we wanted to show everyone the beauty of Maine,” Christine says. The Barn at Flanagan Farm provided a quaint, laid-back setting with plenty of room for their 135 guests to roam. They kept the decor to a minimum to let the restored barn, chandeliers and manicured grounds speak for themselves. Lani Toscano Planning & Design teamed up with Emily Carter Floral Designs to add a few rustic accents here and there, including flower-filled tins and eclectic vintage decor. Christine and Patrick highlighted their love of music with not one but three bands. The bluegrass group Jerks of Grass entertained during the cocktail hour while guests sipped on Maine craft beers. Velourosaurus got everyone dancing after dinner, and the Phish cover band Parton Me Doug capped off the late-night set. Our favorite detail? Fire & Company wood-fired catering! They brought in vintage trucks and old-fashioned smokers, and cooked all the food on-site, from dinner to s’mores. See all the details, beautifully captured by Maine Tinker Photography, below.
