Frequently asked questions
How Many Guests Do You Accommodate For A Wedding Reception?
Live Well Farm can accommodate wedding receptions of up to 200 people. If you are planning a more intimate wedding, you may be able to forego renting a tent as the barn can hold up to 75 guests seated for dinner. If your guest list is pushing 75, then you’ll need to rent a tent. Believe us, the ambiance of a tent is gorgeous.
Do You Have Restrooms?
Yes. We have two restrooms inside the barn. We recommend supplementing the barn bathrooms with rented restrooms if your guest list is over 100 people.
Can We Supply The Alcohol?
Yes. You are required to employ an insured bartender to serve it. Also, we don’t allow cash bars at Live Well Farm. Guests should not have to pay for their drinks.
Can We Have Our Rehearsal Dinner On-Site?
Yes. Please ask us for more info. We’re also happy to help you set up a traditional lobster bake for your rehearsal dinner if you’d like.
Do You Have On-Site Parking?
Yes. There is on-site parking available for up to 40 cars. We recommend hiring additional transportation to help with overflow — our staff assists in parking direction and bus arrivals.
You’re only 20 minutes from charming downtown Brunswick, the home of Bowdoin College and great restaurants, boutique shopping, hotels, and art galleries. Live Well Farm is at the end of the Harpswell peninsula for water activities, nature trails, and seafood restaurants. There is a lot to see and do.
What If We Want To Get Married In A Church Or On The Water?
We have great options for church or waterfront sites. Johnson Field at Mackerel Cove is a popular choice for ceremonies on the water. For churches, nearby Elijah Kellogg in Harpswell is beautiful, and there are many options for places of worship in Brunswick. Please ask for more info.
How Long Is The Rental Period?
We only book one wedding per weekend, so the Farm is yours. If you have rented for the weekend, then check-in is at 3 pm on Thursday, and check-out is at noon on Sunday. Early check-in or late check-out is available for a fee. If you are renting for one day only, then check-in is at 9 am, and check-out is at 11 pm.
Are There Specific Vendors We Need To Use?
No. You craft your reception to reflect your style, so we do not restrict your vendor choices. Please make sure they are insured. We provide trusted recommendations on our list of preferred vendors.
Is There On-Site Lodging For Guests?
Yes. If you have rented Live Well Farm for the weekend, there is accommodation for up to 11 guests in the farmhouse.
Is There Heat Or Air-Conditioning?
We have A/C in the Family Room and the Bridal Suite. Each room has a fan, but the ocean breezes usually provide all the A/C you’ll need. The farmhouse is heated, but of course, we hope you won’t need it in the summer season. Two patio heaters are available for outdoor warmth. The barn is not heated, but once the dancing starts, everyone is warm.
Can Live Well Farm Also Plan My Wedding?
Yes. We guide the way, but (depending on availability), we also have an on-site wedding coordinator to assist you for a separate fee. If you’re interested, you will receive a proposal tailored to your planning needs. We require that our couples hire an event coordinator who is present on the day of your wedding to ensure that your day runs smoothly.
