Venue Spotlight: Marianmade Farm, Wiscasset Maine

Marianmade Farm wedding venue

Marianmade Farm – midcoast Maine wedding venue

If you recently got engaged (congratulations!) the very first thing to get crossed off your list of to-dos is pick your date. When you get married can also hinge on where as many venues in Maine book up a year in advance. One of those places that has become a hot spot for couples in these past two seasons is Marianmade Farm in Wiscasset. Nestled on the banks of the Sheepscot River, this venue boasts beautiful views of the river and a gorgeous, bright barn that is perfect for relaxed, rustic weddings.

The venue is also a working lavender and flower farm, which owner and floral designer Michelle Peele uses to create some of the most stunning floral arrangements for your wedding. Yes! You can get married there AND have them do your flowers!

So why do I love this venue so much? 

Besides its stunning location and ambiance, one of things from a photography perspective that I absolutely love is that you and your wedding party can get ready right on site. The venue offers an adorable side cottage, enjoyed mostly by the bride and her bridesmaids, while right up the hill in the garden is a retro Airstream that groomsmen love to hang out in before the ceremony. Having these getting ready locations directly on the property means that your photographer(s) never have to leave the area, making it a seamless process from beginning to end of your event.

Life at Marianmade farm is a family affair with Michelle’s daughter Mackenzie being the contact person for the venue and setting up tours. Contact her today to set up your tour. I highly recommend seeing the venue in June or July when the lavender is in bloom (but that’s just me). I have it on good authority that they are completely booked for 2015, so if you are looking for a spot for your 2016 nuptials then contact them today! Mackenzie is absolutely lovely and can answer all your questions.
