Waterfront Weddings a Specialty


Conveniently located a scenic hour from Portland, Boothbay Harbor was voted #2 of the top ten prettiest villages in Maine for 2012 by the readers of DownEast Magazine. The region offers the perfect mix of history, natural beauty, rustic charm and friendly local flavor to appeal to any wedding style. Whether you are planning a traditional ceremony or a unique same-sex wedding, the Boothbay Harbor Region has something for you.



This page includes listing information about sources around the region for your rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception sites, bridal party and guest accommodations, church/chapel contacts, hair salons, caterers, florists, photographers, and much more.


You'll find classic New England steeple churches, quaint stone chapels, an abundance of lovely B&Bs, resorts, hotels, inns and restaurants as well as all the services necessary to provide for, and assist with, the event. From personal care to photographers, bands to DJs, flowers to tuxedos, our region has what you will need.


Exchange your vows at a 200 year old stone chapel with a breathtaking view of the rocky mid coast. Or maybe a gazebo overlooking a coastal park and Linekin Bay is more your style. Stand at the altar of a simple yet elegant church that proudly watches over the harbor from the east side of the village. Or choose to tie the "nautical" knot at a marina or a lighthouse. You could also get married at a country club or amid acres of ornamental gardens, sculptures and water features.


The possibilities are just as plentiful for picturesque reception venues, ranging from all-inclusive resorts and spas to a historic rustic lodge nestled among tall pines high above the harbor. For a more intimate wedding experience, consider a waterfront cottage rental or indulge in the ultimate Maine coast wedding experience complete with a private island, boat transportation and lobsters!


There is an abundance of wonderful boutiques, jewelry stores and galleries if you need gifts and party favors, some with unique "Made-in-Maine" items including handmade chocolates and treats. Local bakers can create a cake that is as unique as you are, and talented caterers can provide anything from rustic Maine favorites to contemporary gourmet cuisine. For transportation for the wedding party and/or guests we have a number of taxis, trolleys, trains, limos, antique cars and boats at your service.


For the rehearsal dinner try something different such as an island lobster bake or a soiree around a heated salt water pool by the shore. Share the delights of the peninsula with your guests who can enjoy a variety of local activities before or after the matrimonial celebrations such as hiking on a myriad of trails, attending Broadway quality musicals and plays, listening to a concert, boating, sailing or whale watching, or visiting museums with live sea animals, functioning narrow-gauge trains and shipbuilding artifacts.
