If you are willing/able to come up to the Portland area, we rented a house out on Peaks Island for our rehearsal dinner that was *amazing* – we did a lobster bake and the house was a good fit for a relaxed dinner for about 30 guests. 

My venue was also on Peaks Island – the HarborView at Jones Landing.

Let me know if you would like info/pics of either place 🙂

We looked at Arrows Restaurant and loved it. Very high end food and beautiful setting is a good fit for a smaller group.

We’re not in Southern Maine or on the coast, but we are renting a stunning house in Bethel.  It’s called the Ski Esta.  It overlooks the mountains and can sit up to 70 people in the dining room and has over 4,000 sq ft of deck space if you want to have dinner outside.  Check it out.

I had my wedding in Southern Maine!

These are the places I looked at:

York Harbor Reading Room (pretty expensive and some wierd rules as its a private members only club)

York Harbor Inn (nice but the room wasnt looking over the ocean)

Blue Sky (Nice but  pricey)

Clay Hill Farm (Beautiful, but they only can have a certain amount of people and we surpassed that!)

Union Bluff (Nice, but just a banquet room)

The Cliff House (Beautiful, but pricey)

And I had my wedding at The Dockside. They were amazing and easy to work with. Check them out if you are looking for a place. If you PM me I can give you more info on the vendors I used and reviews for them! Also Ill can give you the link to my wedding pictures so you can see The Dockside!

Southern Maine is the BEST! There are so many great locations here, depending on what kind of look/feel you are going for. I’m a wedding coordinator in the area ( and just love the options for outdoor venues on the coast.

Here are a few of my favorites!

Wolfe’s Neck State Park:

Migis Lodge:

Newagen Seaside Inn:

Nonantum Resort:

Happy hunting!
