We continue our series on elopements, small weddings and recommitment ceremonies at New England Inns with ideas from Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE) members in Maine. For those seeking a beautiful coastal Maine town and inn, both the Captain Jefferds Inn and Camden Maine Stay Inn make ideal destinations for small weddings. We started our series in Massachusetts, then continued on to Vermont, then New Hampshire . Today, part four takes us to two beautiful inns, offering the perfect Maine elopement and small wedding venue, in seaside towns. Spring is just beginning to appear in Southern and Midcoast Maine. With springtime comes weddings, honeymoons and romantic getaways at all DINE inns. Let’s take a look at two perfect small wedding locations in Maine.
Starting in Southern Maine, the Captain Jefferds Inn in Kennebunkport, is ideally walking distance to both Dock Square and the beaches. This former ship captain’s inn offers the ideal location for Southern Maine elopements and recommitment ceremonies. Get married in the living room, in front of the fireplace or in the gardens in warmer months offers year-round choices here. Best of all, there are a number of honeymoon packages to combine with your elopement. You’ll find everything you need to celebrate romance from Honeymoon Spa Packages to Wine Lovers packages. And guest rooms are filled with just the amenities you want to celebrate romance – from deep soaking and whirlpool tubs to private fireplaces. It’s the little things, like personalized notes and attention to your culinary preferences that make Captain Jefferds Inn the ideal location for an elopement followed by an intimate honeymoon.
Moving on up the coast to Camden, the Camden Maine Stay Inn offers among the most beautiful private gardens in the state for a summer time elopement or small wedding. Considered the largest private gardens in the Midcoast, the Camden Maine Stay’s gardens offer winding paths and curved bridges over babbling brooks as a gorgeous setting for small Camden weddings, elopements and/or photos. This is also the ideal place to spend a honeymoon. Imagine sitting in Adirondack chairs sipping wine and surrounded by the greenery of these gardens on your honeymoon. Choose a room that overlooks the gardens to add to the beauty here. The Camden Maine Stay Inn’s Romantic Getaway Package also doubles as a wonderful honeymoon package too. And with so many outdoor options here, Camden makes the ideal location for an intimate getaway to Midcoast Maine.
