About

This hidden gem on Maine's south coast gives you space to celebrate and room to roam. The timeless natural beauty of the Wells Reserve and rich history of Laudholm make this a venue you and your guests will always remember. Hundreds of acres of protected land surround hilltop buildings full of character. It's a perfect backdrop for stunning photography. Imagine your ceremony in the spectacular barn, on a hillside overlooking the ocean, or beneath the spreading branches of our centerpiece copper beech tree.

You'll have the flexibility to choose your own vendors for your Wells Reserve wedding. (We can recommend some excellent local services.) Most contracts cover the whole weekend, Friday to Sunday, so you can make the most of your time together with family and friends.

You're also doing good when you say "I do" at the Wells Reserve: Your fee goes to support this not-for-profit center for education, research, and stewardship of coastal areas.

May through October are the best months for a wedding at the Wells Reserve. When you book with us, you reserve our historic barn, updated auditorium, and adjacent kitchen for your activities. The grounds are also open for open-air or tented entertainment. As a protected public site, we so apply some sensible restrictions to hosted events.

Over the years, many thousands of people have visited this former saltwater farm that, thanks to outstanding community support, was protected from development. Many find the tranquil setting to be irresistible and return again and again. Come on up and see why.

Simply awesome. No place we looked at offered this combination of natural beauty, flexibility, capacity, value, and authentic character. Tracy and Mark were our primary points of contact, and they were a pleasure to work with and very welcoming. The facilities were simple and beautiful. Really good set-up for just about anything you want to do. The barn is incredible. Feels like a space that has a lot of history and still serves multiple purposes. Also great for dancing! We loved that Laudholm was not just a picture-perfect wedding venue, but is also a working, living community space and environmental research center. Glad to introduce our guests to this place and support its mission.

The landscape is absolutely breath-taking! A unique setting that offers a tranquil and intimate atmosphere - so perfect for a wedding. The possibilities are also endless (how to use the barn, farmhouse, ceremony space, tent, etc), and Tracy is wonderful to work with to help make all these fun decisions. The best and easiest decision of my wedding planning was choosing this venue!

Laudholm was the perfect place for our wedding on 10/8/16. We held all of our wedding weekend events there (welcome party, ceremony and reception, and Sunday send-off brunch) to get more bang for our buck. If you don't want to plan every detail yourself, I'd recommend looking elsewhere, as this venue is very DIY-oriented, but if you don't mind coordinating a lot of details and want a unique, BEAUTIFUL spot, this place is ideal. Tracy was very responsive to questions. If you plan to hold events there at night, make sure to bring some lighting. There are lights on the side of the barn, which light the footpaths surrounding the area, but the beams of light don't extend very far, so guests could be eating in the dark if you're doing something outdoors at night and you don't bring lighting.
