Cunningham is incredible!

We had our wedding at Cunningham in August 2022 and can't say enough good things about our experience. From our initial touring and booking experience with the previous owners to working with Matt and Abby leading up to and on the day, we are so glad we chose Cunningham. The setting is truly stunning and minimizes the need for extensive decor and florals. The space is flexible which was a comfort given the compound uncertainty of weather and a pandemic. We ended up having over 100 guests, but we were confident that the venue would've worked for any size. The bridal suite, bar and bathrooms were comfortable and air conditioned, which made for a great balance of rustic charm and creature comforts. Our wedding was on a hot August day, but with the breeze and extra fans that Matt and Abby brought onsite, it was super comfortable. Matt and Abby were also great about letting us come and go to work on florals, drop things off etc. Would recommend Cunningham to anyone looking for the ideal Maine wedding venue.

A Unique and Special Venue

I had my wedding June 11, 2022 and could not have asked for a more amazing venue. It is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS and naturally beautiful. Absolutely stunning and unique. My guests can't stop talking about how special the wedding venue was and were constantly wowed by the authentic Maine forest surrounding. The new owners, Matt and Abby, were incredibly responsive, helpful, and flexible when we needed help. We had catered food for the bridal suite the morning of but they forgot to include silverware! Matt ran out personally and got us some. They made the wedding venue feel really personal for the day, not just another hotel ballroom. The barns offer unique ways to make your wedding truly yours. We used the smaller barn for the cocktail hour which was fun to have people milling about, then fit 150 people for a seated dinner reception and a big band and dance floor! Tons of space, tons of dancing, and beautiful brand new bathrooms and bar off to the side. It really is a special location to have a wedding and your guests will truly be wowed.

Our dream wedding venue

We had the best experience at Cunningham Farm. The property is absolutely stunning, from the barns to the ceremony area to the pond and tree farm. The owners, Abbi and Tanner, were so helpful and accommodating from the moment we expressed interest in seeing the venue to wedding weekend. They provided guidance in hiring the rest of our vendor team, answered our (many) questions, helped us and our vendors with any issues while we were onsite, and overall made the experience that much more magical. We could not imagine our wedding anywhere else.
