"I literally could not imagine a better place for a wedding. The views are completely stunning. The lodge is completely amazing and comfortable and the perfect place to spend the weekend with your loved ones. We did not want for anything while we stayed there. And it is so amazing that you get the whole estate to yourselves for the whole weekend, rather than the venue owners being preoccupied with other events happening during the same weekend. Mickey, the owner, is totally amazing and working accommodating requests and making recommendations and was really helpful to have around on the wedding day. And what can I say about the barn except that it is totally stunning? Go see it for yourself - it will surpass your expectations. Granite Ridge was the perfect setting for a fairy tale wedding and I cannot imagine having been married anywhere else." - Jessica
"Greg and I cannot express how much we loved Granite Ridge Estate and their team! First off, the views are beyond breathtaking. If you're looking for a venue a little more remote and quiet with a view, this is your spot. My guests could not stop raving about the venue. Micki and Jill were beyond nice, supportive, and helpful. They are professional yet extremely welcoming. They accomodated any needs- especially setting up the ceremony, taking care of transportation, and even feeding and taking out my pup. The lodge is also amazing, it is so convenient and having access to a filled pantry is great. I was sad to have the weekend end. I would highly recommend anyone to get married at Granite Ridge in a heartbeat." - Monica
"Our wedding was on October 8, 2016 at the amazing Granite Ridge Estate !! I can only say wonderful things about the beautiful property, Micky and her staff. Little unexpected things that went wrong were handled with ease and I had a sense of relief knowing that it was being taken care of. I'm the type of person that stresses out over every little thing and to my amazement our wedding weekend was flawless !! My husband and I had to rent a van in order to accommodate all of the decorations we had been building and creating over the past year. We were able to make our wedding so unique and personalized to our liking , which is such a great aspect to using this wedding venue. The team at Granite Ridge all work together to ensure that you have your dream wedding! I promise you will not regret choosing Granite Ridge for your special day !" - JD Prattski
"Michelle and the rest of the group at Granite Ridge made our wedding everything we dreamed of and more. Not only did we get the most breathtaking venue I'd seen when we booked with them, but we also got a great group of people that helped make our special day run seamless despite the hiccups that came up during the day. We can't thank Michelle and team enough for everything they did to help us problem solve through out the weekend, taking many worries off our plate and allowing us to enjoy our time. And we can't say enough about the barn, estate house and view itself, which provide an absolutely elegant and charming place to get married and celebrate with your family and friends. It really was the most beautiful spot in Maine to get married and we'll never forget how special it made this event for us!" - Michelle B.
"We were fortunate and blessed to have our wedding at Granite Ridge Estate & Barn this past weekend. This venue is not only beautiful and breathtaking, but the family that owns the property, is unbelievably accommodating for the bride and groom to have a magical wedding experience. Micki is welcoming and supportive, as you feel like you have another family member helping you achieve a beautiful wedding day. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left (sadly), we felt like extended family hosting a wedding on the property instead of guests renting the barn and estate. We highly recommend Granite Ridge Estate & Barn for your wedding. You will be very pleased with the hospitality, support, and kindness of the owners. Thank you, Granite Ridge, for the wedding of our dreams."
With much appreciation, Lindsay & Austin
" When Danielle and I picked Granite Ridge as our venue, we were picking it based on the beautiful views and barn. The most beautiful thing about this place isn't the mountains, lodge, or barn (although they are all gorgeous). It's the Fratianne family. From our family to yours, we want to thank you for an unforgettable weekend and the amount of love and dedication you put in to making our experience something we'll never forget" - Raj
" What we wanted for our September wedding was a place that had soul. We loved everything about our experience at Granite Ridge. Jill and her staff worked so hard to help us create the event of our dreams. The property is fantastic, and we really loved staying in the lodge with our friends for a few days before the ceremony. Having such a comfortable space with a great kitchen helped us stay on track with all the wedding prep, but still enabled us to us to have fun with the people we don't get to see too often.
Of course the Barn deserves a huge mention, as well. It's so fantatic, all on it's own, that we didn't feel the need for much decoration beyond great music, flowers, and refreshments.
Granite Ridge provides the perfect foundation to create the event of your dreams." - Amy Jo
"I cannot put into words how incredible the entire Granite Ridge team was. We met with Granite Ridge and booked our date with them before the barn was even finished. However, we knew immediately that these were the people we trusted with making our wedding day amazing. The Granite Ridge Team really does become more than vendors. They become friends, and we think of them as family now. Our wedding was large with 210 guests. The barn was beautiful, and everyone fit in the barn with room to dance. Our wedding day was flawless, and we cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, and attention to detail of this team. I could not imagine getting married anywhere else - our wedding day was perfection! There is no prettier place in Maine to have a wedding. We are anxiously awaiting photos! - Lauren
" We had our perfect wedding day on 10/11/15 at Granite Ridge Estate - guest count was of about 170 along with a live, 9 piece band still gave us a comfortable fit in the barn. From Day 1, the entire Granite Ridge family was a part of our special day, making sure we had everything we needed to make our weddings dreams come true. The exclusive vendors are top-notch and made the day as fabulous as it was. We took full advantage of the estate with family gatherings and staying there throughout our wedding weekend. It's the perfect venue with the most accommodating people! We had over half of our guests come from New Jersey/ New York and they were in awe of Granite Ridge. Couldn't have asked for more and wouldn't have changed a thing! "- Mallory
"The venue and the people are spectacular at Granite Ridge. The team was extremely professional, genuine, and friendly. Jill is very responsive and that was very important for a bride who is planning a wedding from Boston without the help of a wedding planner and balancing a full time job. All of our guests raved about the modern sleek venue and the amazing view - it was worth the 3 hour drive for everyone. We had an informal rehearsal BBQ at the house and it went perfectly - the Granite Ridge Lodge literally has all the appliances that one would need to host a party; the supermarket was not too far of a drive either. I would definitely recommend every couple take advantage of the house by staying there on Thursday as the serene and relaxing atmosphere of the views will calm any nerves. Blue Elephant catering company is the perfect partnership to Granite Ridge as they too were amazing and went above and beyond for us. The two companies' business models married very well together. We can't wait to go back to visit Granite Ridge again! - Hanh
"Granite Ridge provided the most unbelievable wedding experience coupled with their partner vendors. The most special day in my life was truly just that, thanks to Granite Ridge. The lodge accommodations and jaw-dropping barn with its views were amazing. I honestly felt like I was part of the Fratianne family while there. Their warm and endearing venue and nature made everything about our choice worth it. It is with pleasure and my highest regard that I recommend this venue to anyone looking for a top-notch wedding spot or any event for that matter. Thanks guys." - Chelsea
"What can I say about my wedding at Granite Ridge Estate and Barn other than it was absolutely the perfect wedding venue and the team could not have been any more gracious to us both during the planning process and the actual wedding weekend. If you are looking for a wedding weekend experience rather than simply renting a hall for a few hours, look at Granite Ridge Estate and Barn. The Estate that you get is top notch, every thing has been thought of and it's beautifully furnished and laid out. The barn is absolutely gorgeous and a great size for weddings of various sizes. And when you add in amazing people such as Micki, Jill, and Anthony, you have the PERFECT Maine mountain wedding. Oh, and the views? Not to be believed. Your guests will be blown away. Thank you Granite Ridge for making our dream wedding come true. We would not have changed a thing and are so happy we got married with you all! - Caroline
"What an AMAZING venue! From the views, to the barn and lodge, and to the phenomenal ease of everything that came along with it...We couldn't have asked for a more headache free venue and all the extras that came along with it. We can't thank you guys enough for everything." - Mike
"My husband and I were fortunate enough to hold our wedding at Granite Ridge Estate and Barn a few weeks ago. The beauty of the land, new Barn structure, freshly finished ceremony site and fully furnished lodge were over the top! The Fratianne family and event staff were friendly and accommodating making us feel like it was our place too. They teamed up with LA Luxury Limo to shuttle our guests in stretch limos and a fully loaded 26 person capacity party bus to and from the event. I agree with our guests when they say it was the most beautiful venue they've been to! We had compliments left and right from the picturesque view of Mt. Washington right down to the hand crafted benches and bathroom finishes. I strongly suggest this venue to anyone looking to hold a beautiful function that's private and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Thank you again Granite Ridge for making our day so special!!!!" - Nadia
"I had the opportunity to experience Granite Ridge Estate and Barn which hosted my sister's wedding just last month and I STILL can't get over how amazing and outright gorgeous this location is! Waking up each morning was sincerely like being in a dream - the main house is so beautifully decorated and the house itself could not have been more beautifully designed, each room was SO warm and welcoming! The barn, don't even get me started on the barn - amazing, hands down amazing. Thank you to the folks at Granite Ridge for giving my sister, our family, and everyone that attended her wedding an experience of a lifetime! :)" - Becky
"My son recently got married at Granite Ridge Estate, and it was beautiful and everything went so smoothly. We went the recommended caterer for both the rehearsal dinner and the reception, and the Blue Elephant went above and beyond. The bridal party having the cabin/lodge was great. I would definitely recommend Granite Ridge for someone planning a wedding." - Renee and Bob
