Stunning seaside locale makes for unforgettable wedding memories
With its 57 acres of unparalleled waterfront on Maine’s scenic coast, the classic Spruce Point Inn is a premier location for your destination waterfront wedding, whether it’s a pull-out-all-the-stops elegant affair for 250 or a smaller upscale rustic celebration. Brides can make their entrance aboard an historic wooden sloop, and couples can exchange vows on the Oceanfront Deck, with its sweeping views of the Atlantic. Dine on the freshest seafood in a beautifully landscaped tented courtyard, or indoors in the Pemaquid with its soaring pine ceilings. Guests staying for the weekend will love the fine dining (perhaps a lobster bake rehearsal dinner?) and comfortable accommodations as well as the variety of activities, from tennis to relaxing in the oceanside saltwater pool.

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!
