    Perfect Wedding Venue

    I cannot say enough about how amazing Cynthia and her team at The 1812 Farm are. From the day we first reached out to them, they have been so helpful in planning our wedding day. We were supposed to have our wedding in June 2020 and when everything with COVID happened, Cynthia was so understanding and helpful in re-booking our wedding celebration for 2021. Any time we had a question, Cynthia was always very quick to respond. When the day got closer, I was so impressed with how prepared everyone was. This is a venue where the event/catering team knows their business and it shows. Their knowledge and preparation made for such a fun, relaxing day for the wedding party, especially for the bride and groom. They took care of everything. The Bristol Suite is the perfect get-ready location. You have space to spread out and relax while getting ready.

    Something that also impressed us about The 1812 Farm from the beginning was how much was included with the price of the venue. Tables, chairs, table cloths, flatware, glassware, chairs for the ceremony and cake cutting were all part of the package. Not only did it help save money, but we didn't have to worry about coordinating rental drop off and pick up because everything was already there.

    The 1812 Farm works exclusively with Stone Cove Catering and their food is amazing! I had so many guests tell me that that was the best food they ever had at a wedding.

    I would recommend The 1812 Farm and its team to anyone looking to get married in the southern/midcoast Maine area.

    Beautiful Venue

    We are having our wedding here on November 16, 2019. The venue is gorgeous and definitely worth every penny. Leslie has been very helpful with planning and has assisted me every step of the way so far. I cannot wait to have our dream wedding at the beautiful farm/barn!

    Update: Our wedding was yesterday and could not have been more perfect!! This venue is a dream and the staff was amazing and truly treated us like family. They made sure everything went smoothly and that all our guests were cared for and had a blast!

    You must book the 1812 farm!

    The 1812 Farm was the best decisions we made when we decided to get married. If I could give Sarah Maurer and her team 10 stars I would. First, the food is amazing. We had 160 guests and food was hot, delicious, they even grew some of the vegetables for our wedding at a local farm. We went with open bar and the adorable vintage bar cart was the perfect touch plus our guests loved the Maine Mule they curated for us. My family was so impressed with the service, attention to detail. The facility is 5 stars. Everything we wanted Sarah made happen. I can't recommend them enough. Worth every dime. My mom loved that every time she put her glass of wine down one of the amazing 1812 staff would deliver her a fresh one. Definitely book The 1812 Farm, you will not regret it. Sarah Fraser

    The 1812 Farm's reply:

    Sarah and Dan - thank you! A amazing day! The staff loved working with you, your family and friends. And the donut wall was a huge success (Dan can go into the Donut wall building biz).

Working with Sarah and the entire staff at The 1812 Farm is always a joy. They are always ready for anything and make sure that the day goes smoothly no matter what may be thrown their way. The venue itself, the barn and the grounds are meticulously upkept and have a rustic feel but include all the modern amenities. It's a wonderful place to get married and have a reception.
