Savor a traditional Maine lobster bake, dance the night away. You and your guests will find tasteful rooms, suites and other accommodations with amenities to fit every wish in cities, towns and villages full of charm and romantic ambience.

Special venues, personalized service, for your very special day

You really can get married near a “lighthouse.” Or next to a wind sculpture, right on the water. At the Nonantum Resort, on the Kennebunk River, the venues are as special as the service. Unique backdrops, fabulous sunsets, great photo spots: All of that and more can be yours at this historic, elegant resort, praised by The Knot and Wedding Wire. Personalization is key for the wedding planning and culinary teams, who once created a special menu from a bride’s grandmother’s recipe file. Whether you are exchanging vows in front of a garland-decorated mantel in the winter or on a pristine waterfront lawn in the summer, your wedding day will be treated like the one-of-a-kind event it is.

It’s no wonder wedding couples have been raving about their experience at Point Sebago, where you can get married right on the beach, on the shore of scenic Sebago Lake, with a barbecue reception in the picnic grove.

If something more formal suits you, the resort offers spacious open reception rooms that can accommodate 200-plus guests who can dine on beef Burgundy, then dance the night away on hardwood floors under strings of fairy lights. Before and after your big day, your guests can enjoy all the activities the resort has to offer, including golf, boat cruises, kayak races, volleyball, tennis and horseshoes.

Special ceremonies at sea make wedding experiences to remember

Lots of people get married near the water. But you can get married on the water by chartering one of the eight majestic schooners that make up the Maine Windjammer Association. Imagine the two of you exchanging vows on the deck of a windjammer under sail, a lighthouse in the distance, or at anchor by a beautiful beach or quaint harbor town. Most captains of the vessels, which can carry up to 40 overnight passengers and even larger groups for 1-day charters, are licensed to perform ceremonies, either at sea or dockside. And why settle for ordinary reception food when you can feast on Downeast dinners prepared by onboard chefs (they will even make you a nautical-themed cake). You will be having more than a wedding – you will be having an adventure.
