William Allen Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding weekend! The barn is stunning and has so much character. The property was the perfect backdrop for all of the festivities and our photos looked amazing. We were married in early November, and were worried about it being too cold. We had nothing to worry about. The barn has an amazing heating system that kept everyone at a great temperature. The bridal suite is beautiful and huge. Heidi and Al were incredibly helpful during the planning process and during the wedding weekend. We really couldn’t imagine getting married any place else!Sent on 01/19/2020

Everything we could have wanted and more
The William Allen Farm was the first and only venue we visited. We knew immediately that this was the place for our big day, not just because of the beautiful barn and grounds, but because of how wonderful Heidi and Allen are. Unbelievably responsive, welcoming, and truly cared about our experience. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect with amazing fall foliage. The barn was beautiful, rustic yet still very elegant with the chandeliers and rented drapes. Every space and piece of the property came into play. The groomsman enjoyed drinks up in the loft pre-ceremony, we had cocktail hour with cornhole and then a fire pit on the grounds, the woods further out made a perfect backdrop for an intimate photo shoot, and obviously the barn itself was great for dinner and dancing. Our guests are still talking about it!!!

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
