Rustic Maine Wedding Venues
If you ask a bride or groom-to-be what their perfect rustic wedding would be, you'll get many different scenarios. To some, a rustic wedding means hosting a wedding in the rolling countryside in an old wood barn for the reception, or a wedding nestled within Maine's woods at the edge of a scenic lake, or a wedding ceremony at the top of a ski mountain. To others, a wedding on the coast with an idyllic beach and an ocean backdrop makes for the perfect rustic scenery. Most would agree that a rustic wedding not only celebrates the beauty of two people in love, but also the beauty in nature. 


Maybe you are looking for a Rustic Destination Wedding. No matter what a rustic wedding means to you, Maine has the rustic nature you desire for your wedding from rugged coastline, to serene sandy beaches, beautiful lakes and mountains, even fields in the countryside where the wildflowers provide your decor. The casual theme of a rustic wedding sets the tone that your wedding day isn't about fanfare or fancy cake toppers, instead your love and your love of nature are the centerpiece. In Maine, the only limit to your rustic wedding is your imagination.

Maine appeals to wedding couple's tastes with a variety of outdoor settings. While summer weddings at a luxury resort hotel are always a popular choice, Maine is famed for its pastoral countryside, forested wilderness and rustic coastal atmosphere in spring and fall as well—all of these are a picture perfect place for a rustic wedding. A barn wedding with a big dance floor and grand wooden beams decorated with tiny white light is magical - country chic in Maine. A casual beach wedding followed by a lobster bake and barbeque along the coast is also very special and uniquely Maine. Getting married at a lakeside cabin or campground can prove rustic without roughing it. 

The day belongs to you and your partner to craft into anything you wish it to be, whether you desire a wedding ceremony on the beach, an outdoor reception with waterfront views, or a casual outdoor BBQ by the lake or in the Maine mountains.
