Wedding at the 1812 Farm, Damariscotta, Maine-Emily and Matt

Matt and Emily's day could  be compared to a gorgeous arrangement of a well known musical composition. They followed well established and meaningful Jewish traditions developed over three or more millennia, and yet here and there, shaped it in their own artistic way. Emily, a doctoral student of conducting, and Matt, a playwright, started their day together with an intimate meeting in front of her parent's lake house. More relatives and friends arrived and witnessed the signing of the Ketubah. From there everybody drove to the 1812 Farm, a lovely old farm house and barn, for the rest of the day's events: As the Tisch, ceremony under the Huppah, breaking of the glass, and the wild, celebratory dancing of the Hora, unfolded, Gregory and I were captivated by the tender beauty, intrinsic to each time-honored tradition. We were truly honored to be part of such a magical day and will never forget it. Thanks Matt and Emily and congratulations to you both.

We would certainly recommend the 1812 Farm for your event! The house, with an amazing "getting ready" room, and the landscaping is beyond lovely. The food and service is unsurpassed.
