    A perfect Maine setting for rehearsal dinners, weddings, and receptions!

    The Live Well Farm was such a dreamy place for my husband and I to get married, and we couldn't feel luckier to have worked with Patty and Scott, the owners of the property. We hosted our rehearsal dinner (beautifully seated lobster bake), wedding dinner, and reception at Live Well Farm, and our guests were in awe! Patty and Scott were essential in making the weekend above and beyond what we had imagined. Because of COVID, we confirmed Live Well Farm as our venue less than 30 days before our wedding date, but Patty and Scott prepared the farm land beautifully and were incredibly responsive to every call and email so that we could move forward quickly with plans. Patty provided great guidance for vendors (caterers, tents, etc.) nearby for us to select, and she worked seamlessly with our wedding planners to coordinate all of the moving pieces. Thank you for a perfect and incredible weekend!

    Live Well Farm's reply:

    Thank you Reed and Tyler! I hated that you had to make so many changes to your original plans but you persevered and worked through every challenge that 2020 presented. So honored that we had the privilege of hosting your wedding weekend. You were absolutely gorgeous and both of you are as lovely inside as out. We hope to see you again when your travels bring you back to Harpswell.

    Live Well Love Well

    Live Well Farm was the PERFECT place for us! From our very first visit to Harpswell Maine we fell in love with this beautiful venue and immediately connected with the host, Patty Ruppert. After a quick sit down with Patty to chat about ourselves and the image of our wedding day we took a tour of the house and the property. It was a dream! The house was so quaint and we could imagine all of our siblings staying here with us for our magical weekend. It was exactly what we were wanting. The grounds were immaculately taken care of and with surprisingly no evidence of frequented traffic or tent setup/takedown. The ceremony garden was close to where the tent would be setup which flowed into the side patio, back deck and the incredible 1840’s barn. Unlike other venues we had considered Live Well Farm instantly spoke to us and we could visualize exactly what we wanted our big day to look like. Within minutes of leaving Live Well my fiance and I were in agreement that this was the perfect choice for us. We called Patty immediately and reserved one of the few dates left for the following year!
    Throughout the planning process Patty always answered all of our questions and on our many trips to Maine she excitedly welcomed us back again to the farm. Patty has an extensive list of preferred vendors and has such great relationships with people throughout the wedding community, it was obvious how many words of encouragement we received when telling our own vendors where we were getting married. Our wedding happened during The tough times of 2020 and as expected had some bumps along the way; Patty was empathetic to the challenges we faced and helped us in any way she could. We can't thank her enough for the extra hand(s) she offered us all the way thru it to the very end.
    Our wedding was better than we imagined. Different than we imagined, but also better. With the reduced guest list at below 50 guests we had the most intimate and beautiful weekend from our rehearsal dinner, a welcome celebration, our ceremony & wedding day, to the newlywed brunch - the venue was perfect for all the events no matter the vision we had for each of them, from relaxed and rustic to tradition and elegant. I'm not sure many couples would say they were lucky to be planning a wedding this year but we feel extremely fortunate that we chose Live Well and met Patty and her husband Scott. We cannot thank them enough for their above and beyond efforts in contributing to the team efforts of making our wedding at Live Well Farm so incredible.

    Perfect Maine Wedding Venue

    My husband and I got married at Live Well Farm August 3rd and it was the best place to get married. The grounds were perfectly groomed. The farm house was absolutely stunning. Very welcoming and tidy. I love that it had two AC units to keep all of our NC friends (who are used to built in AC) cool. The owners of the venue were very pleasant to work with and were genuinely happy to be hosting us. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to have the perfect Maine wedding. It has just the right about of rustic/classy vibes that any bride would be looking for.

    Live Well Farm's reply:

    Loved having you. You were stunning and the wedding was just beautiful. Thank you for your kind words and we hope to see you and Mark when you visit Harpswell again!

My band New Shades of blue played for a wedding at live well farm and we really enjoyed the beautiful location. Everyone had a great time. It was such a happy occasion and this was made possible in part by the attention to detail that the owners put into making such a beautiful property shine to its full potential. I have played at a lot of venues in Maine and this was among the best. Kudos to you Live Well Farm!
