The Setting

Located just 90 minutes north of Boston, the Wells Reserve at Laudholm is one of Maine's best-kept secrets. Atop of thousands of acres, you'll find beautiful 19th century farm buildings, barns, and grounds overlooking Wells Bay. Host your ceremony in the restored saltwater barn or along the fields among the trees as a breathtaking back drop. The barn is able to accommodate up to 150 guests, or choose to host up to 250 guests for your wedding using the barn space as your cocktail hour with a spacious tent set up right outside. At The Wells Reserve at Laudholm, you're truly able to make your wedding day the one you've always envisioned.

Looking forward to giving back? The Wells Reserve at Laudholm is a National Historic Site that is dedicated to understanding coastal science and climate change. It is now a 21st century scientific research facility that serves as an ecological preserve and education center. All proceeds from your wedding help support climate research, education, and conservation for the coast of Southern Maine.

Town Ordinances:
Use of drones is prohibited.
Due to local noise ordinances, all music played under a tent or inside the Barn during your wedding must cease by 10:00pm. In addition, the sound levels of music at, and guests’ departures from, your event must not be so great as to generate complaints to the local authorities by our neighbors.
We ask that all guests vacate the property promptly by 11:00pm and all vendors depart by 12:00am. In no circumstances are wedding parties and guests allowed on site after the gates are closed.
