If you find yourself driving along a stretch of route 1 in Topsfield MA, not far from the fairgrounds, you might catch a glimpse of a beautifully maintained Dutch farmhouse and barn. This diamond among the rough wooded landscape is Peirce Farm. This historic estate turned wedding venue is one of my new favorite locations to shoot. What makes it so unique is, in addition to breathtaking scenery, is the estate’s painstakingly preserved history. Throughout the farmhouse, the curious photographer will find heirlooms of the past that make for interesting props. The natural light spilling from massive windows into every room creates an ethereal glow, perfect for portraits of the bride and the groom. It’s for all of these reasons and more, I was so excited to be documenting Jon and Joy’s entire wedding day on the grounds of Peirce Farm. From getting ready all the way to their last dance in the perfectly restored barn, everything took place at Peirce Farm. Because it offers everything one could need and want, the day went so smoothly that Jon and Joy could focus on the happy events as the unfolded. Everyone was happy and celebratory mood. Even Gloria the farm chicken could not stay away and took a moment to create some fun and interesting wedding photography.
