Couples who love the great outdoors, who want to bring their spirit of adventure into their big day, will delight in the stunning natural scenery that Maine has to offer.
Maine is a state that’s renowned for its natural beauty, encompassing both land and sea. Visitors spend days, weeks even, exploring its natural wonders by hiking, swimming, climbing, kayaking and strolling - and who can blame them, the sights are some of the very best that the U.S. has to offer.
The most renowned natural areas in Maine are the Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park (in which resides mount Katahdin, along with plenty of moose), the Appalachian Trail and the rocky Atlantic coastline.
Maine also boasts a long-standing maritime history. In fact, popular rumour has it that Maine was named by sailors, as a derivation of the nautical phrase ‘Mainland’.
Lubec’s Cobscook Shores is a sensational example of Maine’s shorefront beauty. The area includes 14 private parklands and the breath-taking Cobscook Bay. At a glance, it appears to be a totally untouched piece of natural paradise. With its azure waters and proud green forests, we simply cannot imagine a more perfect outdoor wedding venue.
Couples really are spoiled for choice here, because Maine’s rural land is just as beautiful as it’s coast. In fact, Maine is commonly referred to as the ‘Pine Tree State’. This is because a staggering 89% of Maine’s land is covered in magnificent, dense forest.
As you can see, there are countless natural spots for you to choose from. So, set aside ample planning time to locate your dream wedding destination. Maine is filled with hidden gems, so (as tempting as it may be) don’t rush into booking the first natural beauty that catches your eye.
