Great experience for family and friends!
When we first stepped onto the property at William Allen Farm and spoke with the owners Heidi and Al we knew that it was the perfect place to have our wedding. The barn is spacious with a new dancing floor and a loft area. We were married on September 21st with 150 guests and we had enough space to have a seated dinner, a kids activity table in the back of the barn, and the DJ in the loft to help create a larger dance floor. The bar is built into the barn and can be used during an outside cocktail hour as well as an inside reception. The grounds are beautiful – perfectly manicured with multiple spaces to have your ceremony on site. Since there is a sound ordnance, everyone must be off the property at 10PM, which was OK for our guests since we started at 3:30 and anyone who wanted to go out took the shuttle back to hotels and bars in Portland. I would recommend this place for any couple looking to have an outdoor Maine wedding, but with a classic barn vibe. Overall, it was a great experience for everyone!Sent on 10/06/2019

Heidi and Al went above and beyond for us during our wedding and while we were planning. We are incredibly grateful for their beautiful space and steadfast presence. It was 95 degrees with 69% humidity on my day but Heidi and Al did everything they could to cool us down and it was STILL beautiful and everyone still enjoyed themselves immensely. Would absolutely recommend.Sent on 07/25/2019

Magical June Wedding
Where to begin?! Heidi and Al are two of the kindest, most reliable, warm and considerate people I have ever met. Everything about the barn (from the setting, the location, their property) to them (their patience and communication and compassion) made this wedding a dream. When we first booked the farm, we didn't know that we would be moving to Los Angeles shortly after that. Despite the 3,000 miles and time difference, the wedding went off without a hitch and so much of that had to do with the incredible commitment that Heidi and Al have to making each wedding amazing. We cannot begin to recommend this venue enough!Sent on 06/27/2019

Amazing wedding venue and wonderful people!
All we can say is "WOW"! We love WAF and their staff. They are professional, yet very approachable. Very easy going and fun. They care deeply about their clients and their venue. The barn and the grounds are just gorgeous and hands down a beautiful place to say "I do"! It is an absolute honor to be able to cater in their barn and be part of such amazing memories for our clients. Two thumbs up .. all the way for WAF!
