Waterfront weddings at this resort on the shores of Sebago Lake don’t just mean distant views
Some resorts offer weddings with water views, but at Migis Lodge on Sebago Lake, waterfront means right by the water. Exchange your vows under a rustic arch by the shores of shimmering Sebago Lake. (Wedding couples have even been known to arrive by boat!) Have your photos taken on a sandy beach, along a picturesque dock or surrounded by pines. Then adjourn to the rustic lodge for your cocktail party and reception. The catering team will help customize your meal, whether it’s a buffet, family-style or elegant plated dinner. Dance into the night, then celebrate with a bonfire off the lakeside terrace. You’ll have exclusive use of the resort, with guests staying in lodge rooms and charming cottages with fireplaces and lake views.
Island inn on a quiet cove has breathtaking wedding venues that overlook the water
Nothing says waterfront wedding like an island wedding! At the Inn at Diamond Cove, on Maine’s Great Diamond Island, just a short boat ride off the coast of Portland, you can have your ceremony on a lush lawn overlooking the quiet cove, then celebrate with your guests under a classic Sperry tent, for up to 220 guests. The tent has retractable sides for those ocean breezes and a dance floor. Smaller gatherings can be held in the rustic Art Gallery, which features sliding barn doors and 40-foot vaulted ceilings. Or, have a small reception or cocktail party on the patio at the Diamond’s Edge Restaurant, overlooking the scenic marina. Overnight guests have access to secluded beaches, a heated outdoor pool, hot tub, fitness and game rooms and other fine amenities.
