Big dreams for your smaller wedding can come true at this inn by the sea
Your big dreams for your smaller wedding can come true at the Spruce Point Inn, where romance is definitely in the Maine air. There’s time to take romantic walks along the shore or wake to misty mornings in the spruces. As for the big day itself, dedicated planners will help you decide on the ideal venue, from sites on the gorgeous grounds (including under a tent on the picturesque courtyard) to the Oceanfront Deck (also a great place for cocktail receptions and morning-after brunches). Or perhaps it’s just you and a few friends in front of a wood-burning fireplace in a perfect cottage or contemporary townhouse. Delectable menus are customizable.

Cozy up to the idea of an intimate wedding ceremony on the water
What could be more romantic than you and your soon to be very significant other exchanging wedding vows before a dozen family members and friends under a starlight sky aboard a gorgeous Maine schooner you’ve chartered for several nights? Well, perhaps an intimate island ceremony followed by a lobster bake reception. Or maybe a small dockside affair, after which the two of you say your farewells and retire to an onboard honeymoon suite before sailing off on your cruise past lighthouses and the dramatic Maine coast. The history-rich vessels of the Maine Windjammer Association can make all those scenarios come true, coupled with gracious, friendly service and the easygoing at-sea atmosphere that will allow you to relax and enjoy your big day.
