    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).

    **DREAM COME TRUE** laid back yet detail oriented support in a beautiful setting

    Cynthia and the team at 1812 Farm helped us create the most beautiful wedding day that many of our guests claimed was 'the best wedding they'd ever been to'. With a venue and team like 1812 Farm, we aren't surprised. The venue is an 'all-in-one' dream come true. The crew truly works as a team. The grounds were impeccably landscaped. The food was unforgettably delicious (fresh Oysters from an Airstream named 'Sadie'!?). And the bridal suite offered a relaxing escape for the bridal party to primp and relax before the ceremony. Throughout the planning process, our day-of-coordinator, Cynthia, was proactive and accommodating. We opted to have our ceremony at the Pemaquid Point lighthouse and Cynthia was able to connect us to a few local resources to make that happen. We are so grateful for 1812's support and guidance during the hectic planning process and all throughout the activity of the wedding day. With any wedding, stories surface after the day is over and one of our favorites is that unbeknownst to us, Cynthia had arranged a golf cart to transport the bride's 80+ year old grandpa from cocktail hour on the lawn to the reception in the barn. This type of care and consideration is just a small example of the level of support and attention to detail this team provides their couples. Highly recommended.
