I didn’t know a lot about what I wanted for my wedding but I knew I wanted to be married on the water, but not on sand because heels and sand don’t mix. Well after searching around, my husband found the perfect wedding venue to fit those criteria, French’s Point in Stockton Springs, Maine. My mom went to go and tour it since we live out on the west coast, and immediately they said that this was the perfect place for us. With gorgeous panoramic views of the bay and the secluded private event feel, it gave us a breathtaking wedding that we both always desired. From their many fire-pits to an amazing tent, to cozy farmhouse rentals, the property gave us everything and more.

There were a few challenges during the planning period as the venue was going through some major changes at the time and has since altered the way they book the events but the team was very responsive and helpful through many scheduling phone calls. They were patient and understanding of our cross-country communication, as we live in CA. Come wedding weekend, we were able to sit back and truly relax as family and friends the way we desired and the team was attentive to all our needs. And when the actual day came, Nicole was there to make sure everything ran smoothly, and hopefully enjoyed the fun times we had during our photoshoot. I would definitely recommend French’s Point as the best authentic Maine wedding destination!
