Weddings in Southern Maine

Winter, spring, summer, fall in love and get married in Maine...

Brides love the Southern Maine Coast for their weddings. Southern Maine is the perfect home for destination weddings since it's not far from several major cities, easily accessed by 3 major airports and world's away for that scenic special day. The bride and groom can choose between a full service resort for the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception that offers lodging for all the wedding guests, or go for a casual clambake rehearsal dinner and a more intimate oceanfront ceremony with lodging at a romantic inn for their wedding night.
The Southern Maine Coast offers all these wedding options from big lavish weddings to small intimate ceremonies.
The York Harbor Inn and The Nonantum Resort for example provide everything from a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony setting by the sea to a ballroom that accommodates a large wedding reception for dinner and dancing, plus lodging for the wedding party and guests and a bridal suite for the honeymooners. You can even host a wedding brunch the day after your nuptials.
What's extra special about a Maine wedding, besides the stunning backdrop, are the many activities available for your wedding weekend. Guest can enjoy the beach, lobster or schooner boat tours, trolley rides, golf and sightseeing during their time in Maine.
