We are so excited to celebrate our wedding with you in beautiful Portland, Maine this summer. We're going back to the city where we met to fill our big day with the things we love most — Casco Bay, fresh seafood, live music, and you.
We will begin our wedding day with a small private ceremony surrounded by our families and wedding party aboard the Harbor Queen. She's a stunning vessel complete with the perfect upper deck that will serve as our ceremony space. After we make things official, the crew of Harbor Queen will take us on a late afternoon cruise of the bay and its famous lighthouses, old Civil War forts, and a unique view of the city where we met and fell in love.
When we're officially husband and wife and the Harbor Queen returns to port, trolleys will bring us on a short trip from the waterfront to a rooftop reception at Bayside Bowl. We’ll have lobster rolls and other delicious food plus plenty of cocktails to toast the occasion. We love live music so we’re thrilled to welcome pop/rock/country cover act Holly Heist as our entertainment for the evening. We're so excited to celebrate with you in this unique space among panoramic views of downtown Portland!
Make it a date night!
Due to space limitations and safety concerns our event is adults only. Thank you for understanding.
