Tyler & Melissa Wed in Ceremony Barn

Tyler & Melissa, Ceremony Barn, Kissing Couple

One of our brides, Melissa, wrote a beautiful blog about her wedding journey. This is an excerpt from that blog. To read her entire wedding blog visit www.seasaltedbee.blogspot.com/

I simply cannot say enough about Bishop Farm.  The Salter family, who own and operate the farm from May-October each year, are amazing, delightful, kind, welcoming, energetic and phenomenal at what they do. What started as a quintessential New England Bed & Breakfast quickly turned into a bustling wedding venue.  The grounds are beautiful, complete with a fully functional 7 bedroom farm house and 6 quaint cottages sprinkled about for guest lodging.  The 1876 reception barn is stunning in it’s simplicity.  And the chandeliers and voile curtains billowing in the doorway, is what dreams are made of.  There is a wooded switchback stairway that looks as though you’re being transported to a woodland oasis and when you reach the top, a sunny meadow, perfect for an outdoor ceremony . Though the days leading up to our weddingforecasted thunderstorms for our wedding day.  To be on the safe side, we chose to have the ceremony in the newly finished Ceremony barn across the lawn from the reception barn.  It sounds like plan B, but I assure you it wasn’t. When we walked in, the air changed, the lighting was pure magic.  Newly refinished antique church pews from Maine and giant stained glass windows gave it an ethereal quality; the crooked barn slats made the sunlight dance across the floor.  It was something out of a movie.  Aside from the unmatched rustic beauty of Bishop Farm, the Salters are the cherry on top.  From the moment we got to the farm they made us feel like family. Eager to help out, and not just with the wedding.  It never felt forced, or out of obligation, simply genuine kindness.

Thank you Melissa and Tyler for allowing Bishop Farm to be part of your special day!
