Classic coastal resort a picturesque location for your waterfront wedding
A classic resort on Maine’s dramatic coastline, the Spruce Point Inn is the location you’ve been looking for to host your destination seaside wedding. Start your wedding weekend with a lobster bake, then arrive at your ceremony site in an historic wooden sailing sloop. Exchange your vows on the Oceanfront Deck, with a backdrop of blue sky and peaceful sea. The deck is also a lovely venue for evening cocktails, before you head to the Pemaquid, a private post-and-beam ballroom with soaring ceilings and cast-iron chandeliers made to reflect fixtures from the inn’s lighthouse. The ballroom is perfect for dining and dancing into the night.

Weddings aboard windjammers are nautical – and nice!
The Maine Windjammer Association is full of options when it comes to your wedding. You can have your ceremony on the water, on the dock – even on a secluded island beach. But one thing stays the same: It’s all about enjoying your big day with the water as your grand centerpiece. And talk about a nautical theme: Many vessel captains are licensed to perform ceremonies, and many of the on-board chefs can whip up a gourmet lobster-themed dinner complete with champagne and cake. Charter a 40-person schooner for family and friends and cruise through Penobscot Bay, or have your waterfront wedding dockside, say your farewells and set sail on a romantic honeymoon cruise. Some vessels even have honeymoon suites!

Resort has been hosting dramatic weddings by the sea for generations
A spectacular coastal wedding can be yours at the Sebasco Harbor Resort on Maine’s dramatic midcoast. Get married on the lawn overlooking the harbor or in rose gardens surrounding a gazebo on the village green. The resort’s comfortable, classic function areas range from the Cornelius Room, with wraparound windows offering views of the lake and harbor, accommodating up to 225 guests, to the Pilot House, for smaller affairs, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering amazing bay views. With a staff noted for being gracious and warm, the resort combines attention to detail and Maine-fresh dining options with the backdrop of the rocky coastline, lush green woodlands, heirloom gardens and the picturesque Casco Bay islands.
Harborside wedding venues make this inn ideal for your special wedding by the water
If you want to say “I do” as close to the water as possible, the wedding planners at the beautiful Boothbay Harbor Inn, one of Midcoast Maine’s only harborside wedding venues, can help make happen. The harborside front lawn with a raised fire pit is perfect for a cocktail hour, and the side lawn is lovely for ceremonies. Or, consider a waterfront tent. For receptions up to 150 people, the inn offers everything from casual lobster bakes to black-tie events with elegant plated dinners – and everything in between. Stay at the inn (room packages are available) and wake up to your own water view from your balcony or patio.
