From the Bride: “I don’t even know where to start – French’s Point was everything we could’ve asked for and more. I found them in a Destination Wedding magazine, went to the website, and fell in love. We took a lot of scary steps, planning a wedding from Texas and signing our contract “site unseen” but every risk we took was rewarded with an amazing experience from start to finish.
The staff are warm, friendly, and very attentive. I felt like we had become friends by the end of our experience, and I miss our weekly email exchanges!! Who can say that about their wedding venue contacts?!?! We did almost all our communications via email, which were always prompt and thorough. They were also great about planning conference calls to keep me on target with all the little details. Since we didn’t live in Maine, they also gave excellent vendor recommendations, and every single vendor was fantastic.
The site itself is stunning – and we also took advantage of renting Beach Rose Farm for Wednesday – Sunday. This was one of my favorite parts of our destination weekend – walking around the farmhouse watching all our closest friends hanging out, playing games, and enjoying each other’s company – and enjoying Maine as well (a first-time visit for almost everyone attending our wedding)!!
During the ceremony the staff kept everything running smoothly and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. The service staff was super attentive and friendly. I had guests tell me it was the best service they’ve experienced EVER. And the food – it was not “just your typical wedding food” – it was amazing. We did the buffet and there was more than enough for everyone and plenty of variety for those of our guests with specific food requests/issues. We ended the night with the s’mores fire pit and it was a huge hit!
All in all, French’s Point was the best decision we made for our wedding celebration weekend.”
