Cris and Haley’s Wedding at The Garden Gate at Haley Farm

On September 3, 2022, Cris and Haley were married at The Garden Gate at Haley Farm. It was a perfect day for a wedding, with bright blue skies and a gentle breeze blowing in from Sebago Lake.

The ceremony area was outdoors, in the beautiful garden, and the reception was held in the historic barn. The barn had a rustic New England charm and was just minutes away from Sebago Lake.

It was one of the best Sebago lake wedding venues I have shot at, actually.

The bride and groom were very happy with the venue, and the food was excellent. The guests had a great time, and they could take advantage of the beautiful setting for photos.

The Garden Gate at Haley Farm is a great choice if you’re looking for one of the BEST wedding venues in Maine.

The weeks leading up to the wedding were a flurry of activity. There were last-minute details to take care of, final fittings for the bridal party, and rehearsals for the ceremony. But it all came together in the end, and the day was perfect!

The guests started arriving early in the morning to enjoy a lovely picnic brunch surrounded by nature. Then, as the sun began to set, Cris and Hayley took their place at the front of the garden under an arch of flowers. The ceremony was brief but sweet, with lots of laughs and tears of happiness.

Afterward, everyone danced under the stars until late into the night. It was a magical event that Cris and Hayley would never forget!
