Destination Weddings: Spotlight on Maine

Posted by Sarah PeaseMay 21, 2015

Our amazing planner, Sarah Glick, recently took a trip to Maine hosted by the The Greater Portland Convention and Visitors Bureau. While there, she got to check out a number of charming wedding venues. All the highlights of her trip are detailed below!

The first stop on the trip was the Nonantum Resort, a gorgeous resort that sits right on the coast of Kennebunkport, ME. Along with a number of beautiful options for wedding spaces, the resort offers an adorable trolley to take guests to and from the after party bar down the street!

The next stop on the tour was the Westin Portland Harborview. This hotel is a fantastic option for the couple who wants to get married in Maine but still wants a modern feel. The rooms are sleek and urban but still have waterfront views. One of the highlights of being in Portland was getting to go on a Land and Sea Tour. Getting an up close view of a lighthouse was fun! While in Portland, the group also stopped at the Regency Hotel. If you are looking for a more central location in Portland for your venue, this hotel is the perfect choice!

Next, the group stopped to enjoy the view at Point Lookout Resort. This waterfront venue overlooks Penobscot Bay. Guests stay in quaint, rustic cabins and the view from their most popular ceremony space is unparalleled.

Following a full day of venue scouting, the group made a stop at Café Miranda in Rockville, ME. They work with nearby farms to make sure everything they serve is local and fresh. Their dedication to quality definitely shines through – the food was absolutely delicious and they have an extensive menu with over 150 options so everyone can find something they love!

The next day, we headed to French’s Point. This gorgeous estate is located in Stockton Springs, ME and it’s the perfect spot for couples looking for the full wedding weekend experience. When you book a wedding here, the estate is exclusively yours for the weekend, giving it the true destination feel. You can bring in your own caterer and there are several outdoor ceremony sites including a permanent tent for ceremony or reception. They also have the cutest farmhouse right next door for your guests to stay in!

The final venue of the trip was the Black Point Inn. This venue is located on Prout’s Neck, right outside of Portland. This venue truly has it all. From stunning views of Mt. Washington to a nearby beach and cliff walk, the hotel has a true New England vibe. They even keep their fireplace burning year round for an extra cozy element!

Finally, one of the most fun parts of the trip was getting to partake in one of Art Night Out’s art parties. Their jewelry class would definitely be a perfect event for a bachelorette party!

The best part? Making new friends while getting to see some of the most spectacular parts of Maine!
