From gardens to windjammers, Maine has a place for your unique wedding

The New England destination wedding offers unique possibilities in Maine - sometimes right off the mainland. Exchange your vows on an island with a ferry crossing. Say “I do” by the sea with sand in your toes or on a beautiful sun-draped lawn surrounded by gardens. Launch your marriage on a historic Maine windjammer. 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. Look for great wedding packages that meet your dreams and budget.

Turn your destination wedding into a classic Maine seaside celebration at this cozy inn

At the historic Kennebunkport Inn, your destination wedding will be a special seaside celebration. The charming inn, in the heart of picturesque Kennebunkport, specializes in smaller weddings, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be huge celebrations! Exchange your vows on a large deck overlooking scenic Dock Square (a perfect site, too, for a rehearsal dinner or farewell brunch), then dine on classic Maine seafood in the cozy on-site restaurant. Your guests will love their spacious rooms, some with gas fireplaces and four-poster beds, all with elegant furnishings. And there is so much for them to do, from scenic cruises or lobster excursions along the coast to kayak adventures, beach walks, whale watches – and, of course, world-class shopping in the village.

Make your wedding memorable at this lakeside resort

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. Or perhaps you prefer a reception with a real New England flavor: Maine lobster and clam chowder. 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.

From grand entrances to special venues, this inn will make your wedding memorable

Want to make a grand entrance to your wedding? The Spruce Point Inn has some fabulous ideas. How about making an entrance by sea aboard an historic wooden sailing sloop? Or come by land aboard a private trolley or antique auto from the historic Boothbay Railway Village. Take your vows on the Oceanfront Deck, against the sea and sky, then dine on exquisite local cuisine in a private post-and-beam ballroom. In the morning, bid farewell to family and friends with a brunch on the deck, overlooking the Burnt Island Lighthouse. This special inn by the water has one wedding a day, supervised by detail-oriented wedding coordinators.

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 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.
