Winter weddings, inside or out, are beautifully staged at this oceanside inn
Who says you can’t get married outdoors in the winter? Not the York Harbor Inn! Imagine exchanging your vows under a garland of fir by the sea, everything in white, then warming up in an elegant ballroom, decorated with holiday lights, poinsettias, greenery and hints of red cranberries. Winter weddings are something of a specialty at the 61-room inn, with seven private function rooms (some with ocean views, some with fireplaces), gorgeous bridal suites (with ocean-view decks and Jacuzzi tubs) and catering menus to delight everyone’s tastes (consider Maine Lobster Newburg, with a cannoli buffet for dessert). For a wedding of up to 50 guests, rent the inn’s pub for a perfect winter post-reception gathering.
