Maine has always held a special place in my heart. Having grown up on the coast in Rhode Island, the shores and beaches of Maine have always felt like a second home to me. As soon as you drive past the sign welcoming you to Maine and informing you that Maine is “the way life should be”, you know you’re in a good place!
No matter what draws you to Maine, whether it’s the ocean, the breathtaking rocky coast, the celebrity “cottages” or the infinite lobster shanties and blueberry pies, there is just something that is undoubtedly relaxing and special about settling in for a weekend here. Aside from the variety of small towns and secluded coastal nooks and crannies, Maine also offers some very beautiful, very special and very memorable options for weddings! Here are a few of our very favorite Maine Wedding Venues:
I can recall driving around New England several years ago with one of my most favorite Brides of all time, searching for what she called “the perfect tree” to be married under. “I’ll know it when I see it,” I recall her telling me over and over as we drove from barn to barn to barn. When we pulled up to Wells Reserve at Laudholm, I heard her gasp and exclaim “That’s it”. And from that moment on, I have so clearly understood what makes this space so utterly charming, romantic and unlike any other wedding space in New England.
Driving into Laudholm is beautiful, and as soon as you see the old barn and vast grounds, it’s clear that this is unabashedly, quintessentially Maine with it’s rolling grassy fields leading right down to a beautiful clearing of beach suitable for the most breathtaking of wedding photos! There is something for everyone on this property and whether you have a smaller, more intimate wedding in their barn or a more upscale, larger tented wedding, this venue is sure to delight and leave your guests saying, “Ahhhhh” as they depart! Laudholm is simply romantic, charming, and utterly blissful.
