I'm not from Maine, but my sister lives there. She got married in Kennebunk at the Nonantum, which was really nice. I can show you some pics if you'd like :)

 

I would suggest Ogunquit, that's a really nice area.

 

Let me know if you want me to ask my sister for more information if you have an idea of where you're looking, because I know they looked at a lot of places when they were looking.

Hello!

 

I'm from Portland and if I didn't have such a tie to St. John I would definitely be getting married in Maine. I have a few ideas and will think of more.

 

I would recommend July or August or September. August would be best. Otherwise you could be surprised by legitimately cold days or strange weather. In August the ocean is warmest, which isn't saying much, but it would be nice.

 

My family rents a house at Higgins Beach in Scarborough Maine every summer. That is an option: to have the ceremony on the beach and then maybe a reception at the Higgins Beach Inn. They do a lobster bake which sounds expensive at first glance but actually includes a lot. I have seen several weddings at the Inn and they always seem to be having a great time. The guests could stay at the Inn or rent a beach cottage; just google Higgins Beach rentals or realty.

 

For a more urban feel there are many great hotels and event places right in downtown which is on the water just not on the beach. You can do a large sailboat reception or a reception with music on a ferry boat. I have to recommend the Pomegranate Inn for accomodations because I love staying there when I go back to stay with my family.

 

Portland is just gorgeous in the summer. Cobblestone streets, bars, outdoor music, lobster, arts festivals, ice cream! Writing this is making me think I should have gotten married there anyway!

 

I don't know any specific vendors just places. Good luck and feel free to PM with any other questions.

I love Portland too! My sister used to live in Portland, but they bought a house a few years ago so they moved a little further south, I think. Portland is a really fun place to hang out.

 

Alyssa, I was going to post some of the pictures I took at my sisters wedding, but I realized when I looked through them that I didn't take very many because I was in it!

 

So I found the website for the place that she had it and they have a wedding gallery, I thought that would be more helpful for you and they do a lobster bake as well.

 

Here's the website:

 

Kennebunkport Maine Photo Albums Wedding Receptions

 

My sisters husband and his groomsmen got to arrive to the ceremony on a really large sailboat(I think it was a sailboat) It was really cool watching them pull up at the ceremony location.

 

I'll ask my sister too if she has any suggestions.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
