We were so excited recently when Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, a New England wedding magazine highly revered in the wedding industry, selected French’s Point as its featured Top Pick for Destination Weddings. In a brief conversation with the team at Grace Ormonde and Grace herself, we learned we were chosen because of our incredible vistas, unique location on the tip of a peninsula with panoramic ocean views and the privacy it offers couples and their families and friends.

“Our criteria is very extensive and a venue is approved by a series of people before it can make the list,” said Grace, of Grace Ormonde. “To be selected, a company’s performance must meet the highest standards as well as have the best location to get married in. French’s Point is special to me because it’s private and quaint. Also the fact that they only have one wedding at a time is very important.”

We do only host one event at a time so that our couples really feel like they own the estate for the day. It’s a magical place and keeping weddings private allows the magic to really come alive.

Ormonde continued when asked why she recommends French’s Point to brides, “French’s Point is an empty canvas where one can create an exquisite wedding with a view that is simply remarkable.” We believe each wedding should be unique and reflect a couples’ individual style. Our onsite wedding planner works hard to get to know each and every couple, their love story, their family history, and what appeals to them, and then takes that information and helps them to translate it into the most important event of their lives. We constantly hear from our couples that French’s Point is breathtaking because of its beautifully restored estate, manicured grounds and incredible views — combined these become the blank canvas we start with to design a signature wedding.

So, thank you to the team at Grace Ormonde for this honor!
