Julia Skwar & Drew Burke

July 19th, 2014
Freeport, ME

Julia met Drew at the University of Rhode Island. Self-described “outdoors people,” they knew once they were engaged that they would have an outdoor wedding. Their venue, Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport, ME, has a wedding field with stunning water views as well as one of Maine’s oldest post and beam barns. A campground adjacent to the farm, Recompence Shore Campground, offers oceanfront cabins that the couple as well as their wedding party stayed in the night prior to the wedding.

Quilts, vintage fabrics, bunting, whimsical signage and more, all created by Julia’s mother, gave the barn a festive, fun atmosphere. Instead of a sit-down meal, guests enjoyed Mexican food, burgers and root beer floats from three food trucks. There was plenty of opportunity to play, too, with lawn games like croquet, horseshoes and bocce ball. The day was a perfect reflection of the couple’s love for each other as well as for Maine, fun, and the outdoors.
