Oceanside, beachside, lakeside, mountainside … you name it, Maine has the perfect location for your big day!
Picture a beautiful wedding at the country’s most visited National Park, Acadia on Mount Desert Island, with scenic mountains rising in the background. Or try one of Maine’s many historical churches, which bring an element of rich history and old-fashioned elegance to any ceremony.
How about checking out the Maine ski areas? There’s more than just skiing – picture a beautiful mountaintop ceremony that would be both unusual and memorable for your special day.
If you’re looking to be near the water, try an oceanfront park in one of Maine’s many Coastal towns, by a lighthouse, or a lakeside ceremony. Perhaps a barefoot beachside celebration, which offers a laid back atmosphere and the chance for guests to run their toes through the sand!
A seaside clambake would be a fun and entertaining alternative to a formal sit down dinner. A wedding ceremony in front of a Maine lighthouse would provide you with beautiful photos and unforgettable memories for a lifetime.
