Weddings in the Katahdin Region

A Four-Season Wedding Destination

The Katahdin Region is a four-season wedding destination. Whether you get married in the summer, fall, winter, or spring, you’ll have a gorgeous backdrop to your big day.

Summertime offers warm sunshine and the sparkling deep blue hues of our lakes. Brilliant orange, red, and yellow paint the trees in the fall, offering you and your guests spectacular views at every turn. Winter’s white provides a crisp, clean palette for your memorable event.

Whether you’re looking for a grand lakeside ceremony with Mt. Katahdin, Maine’s highest peak, looming in the background; a quaint, private ceremony alongside the Penobscot River’s raging, class five whitewater rapids; or a simple ceremony with vast open views and scenic settings, the possibilities within the Katahdin Region are endless. Your guests will love having the opportunity to explore Maine’s untouched natural beauty during your event.

Make it a wedding weekend and take advantage of hiking, biking, and ATV trails. Take a cruise on the lake in a powerboat, canoe, or kayak to play, fish, or just enjoy the call of Maine’s famous loons. Plan a whitewater rafting trip for your more adventurous wedding guests! Fun and relaxation await you and your guests in the Katahdin Region.
