The epicenter for Maine’s rich Franco-American heritage
    The Androscoggin River serves as a border between Lewiston and Auburn, providing plenty of gorgeous scenery for your L/A wedding backdrop. The falls, in particular, are a popular spot for photos. The cities of Lewiston and Auburn are steeped in rich history, and the architecture showcases both the past and the present. Located less than an hour from Portland, the Lewiston/Auburn area offers a distinctly different experience. And your choices for celebration venues and locations are varied! The awe-inspiring Church of Saints Peter and Paul is one of the few basilicas left in New England, and the only one in Maine. It’s one of the area’s most prominent landmarks. Its opulence and grandeur is second to none. Take a stroll through the Bates College campus with your photographer to capture the essence of one of Maine’s elite colleges. Lake Andrews, located on campus near the well-known Bates Museum of Art is a popular spot for photo opportunities! There are also several public parks along the Androscoggin River that over-look the massive falls. If you’re seeking drama, the falls is where you will find it! Whether you are searching for a grand hotel ballroom, a quaint inn, pristine golf course, or even an historic train station, the Lewiston/Auburn area has it.
