A Barn at Gibbet Hill Wedding in Groton, MA

November 26, 2019  •  1 Comment

May weddings in New England always seem so refreshing. The winter has finally left and the leaves and greenery have come back to life and are, perhaps, as vibrant as ever. The grass always looks so good at The Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA. A great place for a wedding ceremony and this day it was reserved for the awesome Kaitlyn and Peter. 

I had gotten to know these two the year prior during their engagement session. They are very natural and candid together and both down to earth and easy to get a long wth with. There were some nerves for Peter on wedding day but Kait seemed more excited and ready to go. The guys and gals got ready at the Marriott in Westford, MA before heading to Gibbet Hill. Kait opted to have her mom help her into her wedding dress then let her girls in for the big reveal. There are a handful of moments during a wedding day where you get those excited and genuine reactions on people's faces and this was one of them! 

Arriving at the Barn at Gibbet Hill you can clearly see right away why someone would choose it for their wedding venue. It's a beautiful structure with rustic yet modern charm. It sits looking over the fields where the cows roam just beyond the lawn where the ceremony is set up. Inside it is a blend of rustic and modern. Tall wooden beams go up to the vaulted ceiling. There are two upper balcony areas for larger events and a good sized dance floor. On the back side there is a big deck for the cocktail hour that overlooks the lawn and fields. They keep this closed in for colder days but it's a nice space for a large amount of people.

Everything managed to stay on schedule and the ceremony got underway on time. Cocktail hour followed and I got to my formal photos with family and the bridal party. It was a fun bunch so we we enjoyed ourselves getting some nice photos of everyone but then had some candid fun too. The girls especially like to mix things up a bit and crack some jokes. 

Introductions came next followed by Kait and Peter's first dance. Toasts preceded dinner then it was time to party. We managed to squeeze in a couple of nice sunset photos too which is always great to make time for. It also gives the newly weds a breather from the fray! I hope you enjoy some photos from their big day at Gibbet Hill

I think that is up to you both. If one of you is overly religious, then have that ceremony, if not then rock paper scissors should do the trick.
