Southern Maine is one of the top wedding locations along the eastern seaboard. The outdoor settings offer everything from sandy beaches to acres of countryside and miles of forests. Maine’s rugged backdrop makes this area an attractive location for a local or a destination wedding.
Maine features beautiful locations that provide modern event needs while still celebrating the natural landscape. Activities for you and your wedding guests are numerous. Guests can enjoy village shopping areas, beaches, and scenic drives. Get active outdoors with kayaking along the Saco River, hiking trails through the woods. or enjoy a round of golf. Enjoy Maine activities before the ceremony and reception. There’s fishing, whale-watching boat excursions, or a day at the beach reading a good book.
Unlike other Northeast states, Maine is not as densely populated. The unspoiled landscape offers plenty of access to scenic and uniquely-Maine wedding venues. Another great feature of Maine weddings is that venues are generally more affordable as compared to nearby destinations like Boston or New York City.
