What They Said
Just a quick email to tell you that we are still basking in the happy glow from our daughter’s wedding.
The Autumnal beauty of William Allen Farm blended perfectly with the rustic elegance of the barn to create the most beautiful wedding we could ever have hoped for! Our friends and relatives have said that this was “the wedding of the century” and “the most beautiful wedding we’ve ever been to” and ” the prettiest setting and the most beautiful couple.”
We especially appreciated the Bride’s Suite, where Johanna was readied in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Having a place where her stylist could “work her magic” right at the venue was an added bonus.
The romantic spot by the little heart-shaped pond was just perfect for their desire to have their ceremony out of doors. We couldn’t have invented a more beautiful place for Johanna and Timothy to become Mr. And Mrs.
And we can’t say enough about YOU! You met our every need and helped to coordinate an event that will remain in our memories forever. You are organized, you made helpful suggestions and you worked harder than anyone to ensure that Johanna and Timothy had a perfect day. You even made a deal with the “Weather God” for the sun to shine brightly!
We knew from the moment that we arrived at The William Allen Farm that this was the perfect place for our only daughter’s dream wedding. We are so pleased that the dream became a reality.
My husband and I are so happy we chose William Allen Farm to be our venue! It is an absolutely gorgeous property made for an idyllic barn wedding. The grounds are spacious and beautiful, and we had plenty of room for our guests to play lawn games (bocce ball, cornhole). There is also a lovely pond near the barn which adds to the uniqueness of the setting. Logistically, there was more than enough space for our vendors and guests to park, and that parking area was out of sight from the ceremony/reception. The interior of the barn is stunning, and allows you to maintain the essence of a barn wedding without sacrificing elegance. The bar, in particular, was an awesome feature with two service areas that allowed guests to get drinks from inside and outside the barn. Our guests raved about their experience there, and we certainly had a blast! In addition to the location, Heidi and Al are wonderful people. They were so helpful at all stages of the wedding planning process and were always on hand for any questions or surprise visits we made to the barn. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, and I would say that our choice in venue was reason number one!

AMAZING! You have to choose this Barn! It was everything. The William Allen Farm was everything I had dreamed for. It is such a beautiful property and barn. So well kept and loved by its owners, Heidi and Al. Heidi was amazingly helpful and sweet through the whole planning process. She was always there for me when I needed help regarding vendors and recommendations. She made us feel at home and so excited every visit we had! I can not say enough about this place. I love it so much and it will forever hold such a special place in my heart as my beautiful wedding venue. Thank you for offering your home as the most perfect Barn wedding venue!
♥ Kelli, 2018
The best wedding barn in Maine! I cannot say enough AMAZING things about the William Allen Farm. The William Allen Farm, Heidi, and Al truly are what made our wedding as special as it was. I could not recommend more highly this venue. It is perfect – so beautiful, accomodating for a mixture of indoor/outdoor space, a GREAT bar set up, awesome bridal suite and the BEST hosts you could ever imagine. We were completely in love with the WAF from the minute we pulled up to see it a year before our wedding, and it only became more clear this was the spot for us after doing a tour with Heidi. She went above and beyond to make our wedding special – to accommodate us for all the little details and extras that we needed, helped with vendors, etc. Absolutely in love with this place!
♥ Kate, 2018
Having our wedding at William Allen Farm was an absolute dream. The barn and property have such a unique character and offer so much: the cozy bridal suite, nice real bathrooms, indoor/outdoor bar, catering deck, loft for our photo booth, and beautiful pond which we had our ceremony next to. We had almost 200 guests and it still felt very spacious because of the different places people could gather inside and outside of the barn. Our guests were so impressed with the venue and the beauty of the property. A huge thanks to Heidi for being so caring and helpful during the planning process. She led me to some of the best vendors in Maine and always had helpful answers to my questions. If you’re interested, book it quickly and you won’t be disappointed 🙂
♥ Iika, 2018
Heidi and Al are one of a kind. My husband and I spent more time than I really care to admit looking for the perfect spot for our wedding. We stumbled upon William Allen Farm and truly fell in love. Heidi and Al were welcoming, responsive, assisted us with endless questions and recommendations for vendors. It was truly a wonderful experience. The day of the wedding, Heidi and Al were on site, providing guidance and support. They worked so hard to make sure our day was nothing less than perfect. I cannot thank them enough for everything they’ve done. I would highly recommend checking out this venue!
♥ Kristen, 2018
We fell in love with William Allen Farm the moment we pulled up the driveway. A beautiful, bright red barn surrounded by stunning scenery – yet there’s also something about this place that makes you feel at home. And then you have the owners – Heidi and John – who are so welcoming, generous and respectful all while maintaining a high level of professionalism. My husband and I are very fortunate to have hosted and celebrated our wedding day at WAF in September and loved every moment of our time at the farm and
working with the Curry’s. Our guests absolutely raved about the barn and property – everyone had a blast! We cannot recommend this venue (or its owners) enough!
♥ Jackie, 2017
I can’t speak highly enough about the William Allen Farm! The barn and property are absolutely stunning, and it was a pleasure to work with Heidi. My family and I did a lot of our own decorations and planning, and Heidi and her husband were incredibly helpful – answering all of our questions and giving great advice on how to execute our plan. We visited the property several times leading up to the wedding, and even though I’m sure they had a lot going on (it was wedding season after all), they always found a way to work us into
their schedules. It’s clear that they are extremely invested in the couples they worth with, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. I would highly recommend them for your wedding!
♥ Abby, 2017
My daughter Sarah and her husband Greg were married in early September at the William Allen Farm. They could not have chosen a more perfect place for their wedding. The barn had the charm and rustic appeal that they were looking for and beautiful outdoor areas for the ceremony. The owners are fantastic. They helped us along the way with any concerns we had. A beautiful wedding at the William Allen Farm!
♥ Susan, 2017
We could not have asked for a more perfect venue- rustic elegance. It was a fairytale wedding! So happy with how everything came together, and working with Heidi was a pleasure.
♥ Sarah, 2017
William Allen Farm is the most beautiful venue ever! The barn has a natural beauty that literally does not need any sort of decoration to help it out. There are sprawling lands surrounding the venue that you can do so much with; my husband and I set up a ton of games for the guests to play, we had our ceremony on site, and the caterer made the food on site – no one could see where they were set up, that’s how much space there is. There is a gorgeous bridal suite on the property, which was amazing to get ready in. There is just so
much I love about this venue, I can’t say enough about it! Heidi and Al (the owners) are incredibly nice and so helpful. Heidi introduced me to some amazing vendors and I’m so grateful for that! She was also extremely accommodating and let me come to the venue about 1000 times, always when it worked for me – not based on when she was available. Heidi and Al really are the sweetest people ever; I think its a strong reason for why we ended up booking this venue. Great owners, beautiful venue, and so close to Freeport that guests can make a weekend getaway out of your wedding. We’re so happy we found this place!
♥ Katelyn, 2017
The Curry’s were just the people to support us through the planning and execution of our daughter’s wedding. There are bound to be unforeseen challenges and that doesn’t bother the Curry’s! They are kind, wise, flexible, and professional. The barn and the grounds are beautiful and kept pristine! The rolling hills, the pond, and the beautiful woods provided the perfect backdrop. The barn and the attached deck provides plenty of room for our guests to spread out, but not miss all the dancing! The configuration of the bar, serving outside and in, is a brilliant design that served our guests well. We could not have found a better venue for the wedding!
♥ Kim, 2017
This venue was perfect in every way! My daughter could not have chosen a more beautiful location or more supportive people to work with. Heidi and Al ensured that every aspect of the property was immaculate and that her day was spectacular. The double rainbow that ended in the field was an extraordinary touch.
♥ Karen, 2017
Heidi and Al were amazing to work with! They helped my husband and I with every detail. They gave us recommendations on how we could utilize the space for our large wedding. We had an amazing wedding that our guests as well as us will never forget, and a lot of that is because of Al and Heidi! I cannot recommend them enough!
♥ Kate, 2017
I cannot say enough about how great the William Allen Farm was! Heidi was absolutely amazing at communicating and assisting in any way she could and she really made the experience so much more enjoyable. We had our rehearsal dinner in a tent on the property, ceremony outside by the pond and reception in the barn. I fell in love with the barn and all its amenities. It was so nice being able to be on property the day of and get ready with my ladies in the bridal-get-ready-suite! So many of my wedding guests said they absolutely
loved my venue and I couldn’t be more grateful to Heidi and William Allen Farm for being the perfect backdrop on the best day ever!
♥ Whitney, 2017
William Allen farm is the perfect barn wedding venue!The amount of thought, planning, and pride that this family has put into their home/ venue is obvious from every angle. From the cozy bridal suite, hidden gravel- lighted parking area, flower beds, (I could go on & on) everything is designed to improve the guest experience. Since the time we visited the venue, there were multiple improvements and upgrades. The built-in bar is accessible from both
outside & inside. They also added a deck so the catering tent is out of the way & off the ground. They also installed a stone walkway in the front of the barn. The day before our wedding & even the morning of, Heidi & Al were both working non-stop to make sure the property was flawless. Another reason we choose this venue was that of Heidi & Al. DIY venues are big undertakings, especially without a full-planning service. Heidi & Al are both so calm, easy to talk to & genuinely kind. When the chaos and craziness of your wedding hits
you, these are the kind of people you want surrounding you & your family! Throughout the entire planning process, Heidi was quick to reply to my questions, honest in her recommendations & overall so easy to work with. We cannot say enough good things about Heidi, Al and William Allen Farm. This wedding venue was the most perfect setting for us & the pictures we have from the day are breathtaking. This venue is well planned, well-executed & clearly a passion for the owners.Our day was perfect!
♥ Samantha, 2017
This was the perfect setting for our wedding. Heidi was very responsive and always willing to help. She had no problem letting us store a trailer (full of wedding décor) on the farm the week leading up to the wedding. She was also very helpful if I had any questions on vendors or the logistics for the wedding day. If your interested in having a barn wedding I strongly suggest taking a drive out to view the barn, as soon as my husband and I saw it we knew it
was perfect. The location is also amazing! All our out of state guests were in love with Freeport. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
♥ Ashley, 2017
We just adored working with Heidi at William Allen Farm! It felt like an extended family member’s love and support going into the event, and with local and professional experience and knowledge to help us through the tricky logistical stuff. The big day, put together in just 6 months, went off without a hitch! I highly recommend this venue for the natural and well-kept beauty of the facility and the warm welcome from the owners.
♥ Kate, 2017
The only advice I would give to the engaged couple trying to book the William Allen Farm is to book early! Heidi and Al have such a great place that the word is getting out fast, and they are booking well into the next year easily. On a more personal note…we had our daughter’s wedding there a couple weeks ago and it was without a doubt, my daughter’s dream wedding! The barn, the grounds, the pond…all the while Heidi kept reassuring me that “It was
all going to be beautiful”. She was right on the mark, including the special weather she ordered! I would without any hesitation, recommend the William Allen Farm for a wedding venue, or ANY kind of special celebration. This venue was the BEST choice my husband and I made during our wedding planning. Heidi and her husband Allen were absolutely amazing. We were not just another wedding to them. They remembered all the little details about us and our day. They made our day extra special. They are worth every penny because of all the personal touches they offer!
♥ Alisha, 2016
Heidi is fabulous to work with! Our wedding truly was more than we could have hoped for and the venue was a HUGE part of that.
♥ Jenny, 2016
I can not say enough about how amazing The William Allen Farm is but I’m gonna try! First of all the location is perfect just outside of Freeport, and the grounds are spectacular offering multiple different backdrops equaling outstanding photos and oohs and ahs from your guests! The barn is breathtaking and the outdoor deck provides a great setup area for caterers or even more guest seating. Heidi is very easy going with a flexible meeting schedule and accommodates even the most particular bride. She knows the wedding business and other vendors very, very well and proved to be an incredible asset in the planning process. She and her crew even helped us the day-of with an unfortunate furniture issue and saved the day! We already plan to renew our vows for our 5th anniversary at The William Allen Farm!
♥ Melissa, 2016
Beautiful venue for a wedding! Al and Heidi were awesome to work with and very accommodating! Anytime we had questions they were quick to answer!
♥ Michaela , 2016
Heidi and Al have the most beautiful farm barn and property which they have preserved but upgraded into the perfect wedding venue. Hundreds of years of farm history in a traditional Maine red barn that is picture perfect. Upgraded with chandeliers, a professional bar space, a raised lounge and restrooms for your guests, this is the ideal place for a wedding ceremony and reception. Have it all without leaving the property. Conveniently located to both Portland and Freeport. The grounds are meticulously kept with flower gardens, majestic trees, a beautiful pond and farmhouse. Added perks include a bridal or grooms suite and valet parking included and provided by the venue hosts. Can’t stress enough how wonderful an experience we had here. – Lou and Matt
♥ Matthew, 2016
I have nothing but amazing things to say about the William Allen farm! Heidi is amazing and so easy to work with. She and her husband truly enjoy having weddings on their property and are so helpful. The barn and grounds are absolutely gorgeous and the bridal suite is to die for! We had such a fabulous day and would highly recommend this venue!
♥ Jessica, 2016
The WAF set the tone for our whole wedding, and it was just amazing! Heidi was extremely helpful in answering our questions, helping us arrange planning visits to the farm, and connecting us with other great vendors for our event. We had our ceremony outside on the beautiful grounds, then a very fun reception in the barn with dinner and dancing. There was plenty of room for lawn games, men’s/women’s rooms available for the guests, a bridal suite
to get ready in, plenty of parking and room for a shuttle bus drop of- every detail was perfect! Even better, you have the barn for the weekend, so there was time to get things ready Friday afternoon, get married Saturday, then swing by Sunday to pick up your things. I cannot say enough great things about WAF, and highly recommend it for the couple looking for a relaxed, fun and unique wedding venue!
♥ Rachel, 2016
I’d like to thank you and your husband for all you did to make Rachel and Ryan’s wedding so perfect. The venue could not have been more ideal and your attention to detail made everything go so smoothly. All that made it a “piece of cake” for this mother of the bride. The work you’ve done to enhance the barn and surroundings is first class. The large bride’s room was ideal for all the prep.I’m also giving you credit for the glorious weather!!!
♥ June Seely, 2016
Good morning Heidi, I just wanted to drop you a note expressing how absolutely beautiful the entire venue was for our wedding. It was really just the perfect setting. The bridal suite was so accommodating and had plenty of room for the bridesmaids, myself, hair and makeup people and anyone else who happened to stop by during the day. The grounds and the barn were just stunning…everyone was raving about the venue. I really loved how casual and comfortable, yet still beautiful, the barn setting was. Even this past weekend we were at another wedding, and people were coming up to Andy and me still gushing about our wedding and how beautiful the venue was. You guys have such a great spot there! I hope many other couples get the opportunity to get married at such a beautiful site! Thank you so much for all your hard work maintaining the character of the venue. We really had a dream come true wedding, it was exactly what we wanted.
♥ Katelyn Caron, 2016
We can’t speak highly enough of Heidi, Al, and their beautiful barn at the William Allen Farm. It was a dream location for our June 25, 2016 wedding. Our journey with the William Allen Farm began in January 2015 when we first toured the property. We got to know Heidi and Al very well over the next year-and-a-half as we planned our wedding. Throughout the whole planning process, they were extremely gracious and attentive to all of our questions and needs. They go the extra mile with their couples — from assisting with hotel accommodations to coordinating vendor deliveries — their service goes beyond just renting out a barn. The William Allen Farm has it all — a pond, lush fields, chandeliers, and a stunning new bar and loft area. The barn is very versatile. It can be as elegant or rustic as you want to make it. For our wedding, our theme was an Old English gentleman’s lounge. Heidi and our vendors did an amazing job in helping us achieve our vision. On our wedding day, our guests were utterly blown away by the beauty, elegance, and class that is the William Allen Farm. We are so fortunate to have met Heidi and Al. We can’t wait to find a reason to throw another party with them!
♥ Luke and Andrew, 2016
Our wedding on October 8, 2016, was the most perfect day in the most perfect setting! We really appreciate all the help, answered questions and loving support by providing such beautiful scenery to start our life together! Thank you so much Heidi for all you did!
♥ Lauren & Shane Perreault, 2016
It’s a gorgeous setting!! My daughter held her wedding there and it was perfect. The owners were so warm, welcoming, gracious and helpful from beginning to end. It would be great if they could celebrate every anniversary there!
