Choosing a beautiful and memorable place to wed the one you love adds a special ambiance to your wedding story. Maine offers an impressive combination: spectacular settings, charming Downeast hospitality, and a destination that the wedding party and guests will thoroughly enjoy.
A Maine wedding carries with it a kind of mystique, an aura of things authentic and natural. With our abundant variety of locations, facilities and accommodations, Maine is equally suited for an exquisite formal event or an intimate, low-key ceremony. Simply let Maine’s tranquil, scenic beauty ease the strains that so often accompany this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
Couples with classical tastes might choose to have their ceremony at one of the state’s many historic chapels or at an elegant coastal resort. Others might prefer an intimate B&B, a rustic lakeside lodge, or a garden ceremony at a botanical retreat. You could marry by a lighthouse as waves crash in the distance or on a romantic windjammer cruise. You could even take a lobster boat to an island beach for a casual ceremony followed by a lobster bake. Almost anything is possible in every season and region of Maine.
Adventurous couples might wish to say “I do” on a mountaintop—the summit of Mt. Battie is one popular spot. Many of Maine’s state parks and nature preserves also welcome weddings. In winter, a ski lodge can be a magical place with cozy fireplaces, sparkling white lights in the reception hall, and a sleigh ride for the bride and groom.
A wedding in Maine is also a wonderful excuse for you, your bridal party, and your guests to tarry a bit longer and enjoy all the state has to offer. Send your friends home with Maine mementos—like chocolate-covered blueberries or maple syrup—and Maine memories that will last a lifetime.
