Retreat House Wedding

Published January 4th, 2017

When Marc and I set about finding a location for our wedding ceremony and reception we knew we wanted waterfront and we wanted to be in Maine, preferably not far from where we live, which is on Mount Desert Island. One of my bridesmaids recommended we tour French’s Point. So we called and they gave us the bridal suite for a night! We didn’t know what to expect, and when you drive up to the Estate we were filled with anticipation. The Point is breathtaking. It is a family run business and Jessika’s mother is in charge of the gardening. The grounds are lovingly cared for by her. On our actual wedding day it was the summer solstice and the lilacs and wild roses were in flower. As soon as you walked onto the property the air was filled with their perfume. It is a scent that will always take me back to our wedding day.

It is Jessika and her trusty team that make this place special and stand out from the rest.

Marc and I rented Beach Rose farm, and we had all our immediate family and wedding party stay there. This was the perfect choice for us as we run a vacation rental business. So it just made sense for us to rent the farm and other cottages on the point. We wanted people to feel like it was a wedding within a holiday, and it was great to have everyone enjoy their trip to Maine without rushing.

There is not one area that makes French’s Point special, every part is given the same thought and care. There are several fire pits, grills, gorgeous overlooks over the water, swings etc. And they keep improving. We planned our wedding for two years and in that time, they made many improvements and renovations, adding a new sailcloth tent, renovating rooms at the farm, adding gardens, etc. However, above all, it is Jessika and her trusty team that make this place special and stand out from the rest.

They are calming and sensitive to every need and know how to keep the day on track.

After planning a wedding I know how stressful it can be, and how important it is to have a good relationship with your vendors. The most frustrating thing can be is not hearing back from someone promptly. I never had this problem with French’s Point. Everyone listens and gives great advice. And on the day they are calming and sensitive to every need and know how to keep the day on track. I can’t say enough good things about the French’s Point family. If you are dithering between here and somewhere else, look no further. You have found the ultimate private, secluded, romantic spot on earth.
