The Kennebunks

    The place to be all year
    What could be a more picture-perfect backdrop for your wedding than the beautiful beaches and deep blue water of the Kennebunks? How about a stone church perched above crashing waves? Or an antique farmhouse overlooking the marsh? Or a turn-of-the-century resort with a rolling green lawn? All of these venues —and more —are available for those looking to exchange vows in Maine. In the last decade, the Kennebunks have become one of the country’s premier destination wedding locations, primarily because of the local beauty, but also because of the many activities wedding parties and guests can enjoy here. The destination is perfect and welcoming for all couples. Sunset kayak tour? Check. Sunrise breakfast on the beach? Check. Evening cocktail cruise? Check. Trolley tours? A plethora of shopping? Relaxing spas? Check, check and check. In addition to a variety of wedding sites, your rehearsal dinner or other special occasion can be as formal as a sit-down dinner in one of the region’s fine restaurants, or as casual as a waterfront lobster bake by the shore or rustic barn event. The region is also rich in all of the services you’ll need for your special day, from photographers to caterers, hairdressers and florists to event planners, cake designers and videographers. Your guests can even travel to your wedding on a trolley, or via a golf cart limousine! There is no better place to honeymoon than here in the beautiful Kennebunks, with accommodations ranging from historic bed and breakfasts to antique vehicles. The Kennebunks is one of the most photographic communities in the world, and we are lucky to have so many talented local photographers who remind us of this with their striking images. Around every corner awaits the next best shot, which differs in every season, in the changing light of the day. Add a bride and groom to the scene and you’ve got the perfect shot.
