A cool blue sapphire surrounded by sparkling diamonds that his mother treasured. The venue, steeped in history, where his grandmother was wed. Family and special guests gathering from around the globe.
The Royal Wedding?
No, another fairytale wedding at Spruce Point Inn on the ocean in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
The Knot rates Spruce Point Inn as one of their five recommended destination wedding locations in the State of Maine. They called it “Retro Modern… [an] idyllic location … [with] luxury facilities.” Guest comments about weddings, anniversary celebrations and vow renewal ceremonies at the Inn paint a truly romantic picture of couples making memories to last. Watching a YouTube video of a bride and groom’s first dance (clearly well-rehearsed) on the parquet dance floor in the Inn’s Linekin Bay Room, it is clear that Spruce Point Inn is the place where a Maine oceanside resort wedding is made of long summer evenings, romantic walks along the shore and misty mornings in the spruces giving way to sun-drenched afternoons under shady market umbrellas. Martha Stewart Living said, "We wanted to share the incredible views, the ocean, the incredible beauty that never changes."
Facilities at Spruce Point Inn can accommodate gatherings of groups ranging from 14 to 400 people. The Inn’s professional event planners are known nationally for their ability to coordinate the most intimate and secure retreats, large family gatherings and another word seaside weddings that feature a mix of off-site activities (accessible via the Inn’s shuttle and waterborne launch) and creative use of the Inn’s 57 acre landscaped grounds, recreation and Spa put to best advantage.
With over 5,000 square feet of spectacular oceanfront wedding space, including tented decks, the Inn offers one of the most distinctive destination wedding venues in all of New England for exclusive events. The wedding party might arrive at the ceremony aboard an antique yacht. The historic inn provides one venue for the ceremony while the tented waterfront or cathedral ceiling ballroom (with the illuminated Maine woods as a backdrop) provide romantic memories for the reception.
The Inn’s wedding facilities include:
The Pemaquid, a 4,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility, with adjacent 4,000squarefoot tented courtyard and can accommodate up to 280 guests. The upper level allows for a dramatic entry by the bride to her reception.
The Linekin Bay , covering 2,100 square feet, features cathedral ceilings and is decorated in an elegant New England style. Fully air-conditioned and ADA accessible, the room is adjacent to a beautifully landscaped and tented courtyard that offers an alternative space for the ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or bridal brunch.
