Seafood Delicacies

Maine is famous for its seafood, & many coastal wedding venues take advantage of this by serving fresh, local seafood dishes. Lobster, clams, and other ocean delicacies are often included on the menu of a traditional, wood-fired lobster bake rehearsal dinner, making the dining experience truly novel & memorable for guests. The oceanfront setting at French’s Point creates the perfect ambiance for enjoying delicious local dishes & traditional Maine fare!

Intimate Settings

Many of Maine’s coastal wedding venues are designed for intimate weddings, with smaller guest lists & personalized touches. This creates a warm & welcoming atmosphere that is perfect for couples who want a more relaxed and personal wedding weekend experience. The option to accommodate 60 guests or fewer also allows for more customization of the weekend experience, due to the smaller group size, so couples can create a wedding that truly reflects their personalities and tastes.
