    Barn/Outdoorsy/Classic Wedding

    I am looking for an open barn setting. Something like Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa)'s house/barn. I'm looking for dark woods, an open floor plan, and lots of greenery. Closer to Boston the better.

    Another image that pops into my head is something like Simon Pearce in VT but closer.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello!  Two places immediately came to my mind:

    The Barn at Gibbet Hill

    Harrington Farms

    I've been to weddings at both places and they were gorgeous!  But both are outside the city.

    Good luck!

    I'm not sure if The Meeting House is too far for you. It's in Tiverton, RI (about an hour south of the city). Really pretty grounds and in a very cute area. Right near the ocean too.

    Thanks so much.

    The Meeting House is exactly the idea I have going.
    Thanks for the posts guys!

    So excited to see there actually are options out there.

    I found this blog post that I remember reading about farm weddings in MA:

    I think it's a lovely idea. :)

    Zukas Hilltop Barn - Spencer, MA, 45-50 minutes outside the city, near the MA/CT border.
    The online pics dont do it justice!! (but I am biased, I got married there!)

    I've been to weddings at both Brooksby Farm and Salem Cross Inn and they are both fabulous locations.

    Been to a wedding at Zukas Farm and it was lovely.  Not as polished as this but much closer to Boston is Gore Place in Waltham.  They have very rustic barn and tent area for weddings.  I have been in the barn with furnished very bare bones for a work function and totally done up for a wedding (full lighting, flowers, linens).  You might want to take a look there since you can customize the barn to look exactly how you would like.  Good luck with your search.

    Omg, why didn't I look at The Gore Place? I have driven by it like a thousand times and never knew what it was! It is gorgeous! :)

    I went to a wedding at the Spring Hill Lodge in South Berwick, Maine - it was beautiful. I'm guessing its about an hour from Boston though.

    Good luck!

    Hartman's Herb Farm in Barre, MA (central) is quaint and lovely, although, not particularly "close" to Boston.  We go there for a lot of our garden vegetable plantings.  The owner is a sweetheart, and the place is always being prepped for a wedding during the summer when we stop by for garden plants.
