Mirco-Weddings

Looking for something other than an elopement but smaller than a large wedding?  Consider a Micro- Wedding for up to 50 people.  As the bride and groom, you can enjoy 2 nights together in your choice of accommodations.  Choose your favorite ceremony venue on the farm, our private preserve, or local 1800s country chapel and design your own intimate ceremony and reception.  We’ll take care of the rest!

Our Micro-weddings offering includes the following:

  • Choice of ceremony venue at our private preserve, pond, meadow, forest, saltwater cove, or 1800’s country chapel, all on-site or within walking distance.
  • Wedding officiant: A Maine Notary or ordained minister
  • Instructions and guidance on how to obtain your marriage license.
  • Wedding flowers for bride and groom and attendants.
  • Professional photographer for 1 hour and online photo gallery.
  • Use of 1800’s schoolhouse event space adjacent to chapel for reception within walking distance from the farm.

  • Our gift to the Bride and Groom – A celebratory beverage of your choice and charcuterie board.
  • Professional planning assistance to bring it all together for your special day.

Both the country chapel and schoolhouse event space must be reserved in advance.
