Meraki Portrait This past Saturday, I was so excited to sit down with photographer, Alicia Rackley, owner of Meraki Portrait. We have been corresponding electronically since she learned Chad and I were pursuing a wedding venue on our property.

Before & After, Part I
Exterior Barn Renovations If you are searching for an authentic New England barn for your wedding or event, you may be interested in seeing how we have transformed one Maine barn from a building that once held cows, chickens and tons of hay to one for people, complete with a built-in bar and plenty of space for dining and dancing.
