The Welch family welcomes you to the Moonlit Ridge Estate event venue! Owner Skylar Welch has an eye for creating beautiful spaces. She’s always had a passion for planning and design and loves to host and entertain loved ones. The idea of taking a space, pairing it with a vision, and creating an entirely new setting unique to each client is what inspired her dream of Moonlit Ridge. Now Skylar and her husband Bryan are bringing their dream to life by creating a place where others can host their own perfect event. Skylar and Bryan dedicate Moonlit Ridge to their three children, Kai, Harbor, and Luna. Throughout the estate, you’ll find each part of the venue named after their beautiful family, as well as thoughtful touches inspired by each member.

The Estate

Aside from the spectacular views, lush grounds, and surrounding wilderness, Moonlit Ridge features a completely renovated property. Moonlit Ridge Estate boasts a newly restored five-bedroom main house, newlywed suite, wedding party suites, pavilion, patio, and caterer’s quarters. You’ll be truly amazed by the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and thoughtful design touches in each space. With so many options, there is a space for every part of the weekend, as if you’re renting multiple event venues in one gorgeous location.

Moonlit Ridge is a private haven located about 45 minutes from Portland, Maine. This central and easily accessible location is perfect for out-of-town guests, while also an escape from the commotion of everyday life. You’ll be immersed in nature while living in luxury at our completely remodeled estate, and still within access to close-by accommodations and amenities.

The freedom to curate and customize makes Moonlit Ridge unique from other Maine event venues. The sky is the limit when it comes to your event! The entire space is yours for the whole weekend to enjoy as you see fit, and the estate is a blank canvas for you to design in order to bring your dream to life.
