Beach weddings - Would you enjoy a cool ocean breeze on a hot summer day while exchanging wedding vows with your toes in the sand? Mmmmmmm......smell the fresh ocean air!

One beach that comes to mind immediately is Higgins beach in Scarborough. I frequent that beach often due to the lower volume of tourists. It is a relatively small beach at high tide, but at low tide you can walk quite a distance! Some areas are edged by a barrier of rocks, such great photo opportunities!

Information on Maine beaches, including pictures can be found on the Maine beach theme weddings page.

Lakeside weddings - A beach doesn't necessarily have to be the ocean either! Another option for outdoor weddings here in Maine is on a lake. Maine has many beautiful lakes. One that comes to mind right away, Sebago Lake!

Check out the following:
Point Sebago Resort

Fort Williams Park, Outside wedding, Maine beach weddings Local park weddings - Picture yourself exchanging wedding vows with a beautiful ocean view and historic lighthouse in the background.

Portland Schooner Company, outdoor wedding ideas, Maine Boat cruise weddings - What a way to create a memory of a lifetime for both you and your guests. Just visualize yourself on the top deck standing on the bow and professing your love to one another in such a majestic place.

Garden weddings - Close your eyes and imagine the sounds of song birds and running water in a small stream, surround by flowers and trees as your exchange your vows!

Check out the following:
Clay Hill Farm

These are just some of the places that I have thought of...there are so many more! After all...Maine does expand over 800 miles from the most southern tip to the most northern tip!


Consider renting a wedding tent in case of rain.

Some say the mosquito should be the new state bird…they can get quite fierce especially in the evening during spring and summer.

Tidbit: Beauty surrounds us every day, just look!
