Beautiful day in April
Billie was great to work with, we were her first wedding at the venue since she bought it. We were in quit the rush because my daughter and her fiancee were due to move to Washington State in 5 weeks for the military. With Billies help of letting us come early mornings to review the venue, chapel and set up, it was achieved. I will say that a night wedding at this venue is much more beautiful because of the lights in the venue, a day wedding is also beautiful but if we had to do it all over again it would have been a night wedding for sure. Plenty of kitchen space for the caterers to get ready and do a proper job, plus a great spot in the venue to set up buffet tables. The Agora had tables and chairs for us to use at no extra charge, round and rectangular plus chairs, so that was helpful. There is also a en suite for the bride to get ready and the couple to stay afterwards, the couple didn't take advantage of the rooms but they sure are beautiful.Sent on 02/08/2020
I would like to say that the whole experience was wonderful, the bar was well stocked, area for the cake beautiful and plenty room for dancing. When all said and done the wedding was beautiful, Billie was extremely helpful and my daughter and son in law loved every minute of their special day.
Agora Grand Event Center's reply:Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Night time weddings are spectacular with our lighting, but daytime weddings are equally as beautiful with the sun shining in our stained glass in the chapel or through our large windows in the Grand Hall - all depends on what people are looking for. However, we started working with couples for their initial tours to time them so that they can see the venue after sunset for the lighting effects or when the sun is shining. Sometimes this means multiple tours so that they can make an informed decision before they work with their planners for improved event timelines. We made this change because of YOU! So thank you for that feedback while we were tearing down after the festivities. We thoroughly enjoyed working with you all. Our litmus test during an event is to watch the couple for their reactions and seeing the bride enjoying herself let us know that the day was going great. Lovely couple with great family and friends. This wedding was the inspiration for our “lending library” and the very first contributor.

Stunning and over the top. I live in Northern Virginia and attended a wedding at the Agora Grand. A venue like this in the DC area wouldbe very expensive, especially for a wedding of 200 or more. This place is a masterpiece, super classy and full of architecture and elegance you won't find in anything modern. On the down side, while it's located in Maine's second largest city, it's still a pretty small city so don't expect any wild nightlife. Still, it's an incredible bargain considering how close it is to Boston (about 2 hours). Once the rest of New England hears about this place, you can expect the price to jump, so book while you can!Sent on 02/09/2017

Andrew has a great event venue that is centrally located near the midcoast Maine area with easy access from Portland, Augusta and well beyond. It's a beautiful place with high cathedral ceilings and many other amenities. Andrew goes out of his way to provide a pleasing and functional venue for his guests and has been a pleasure to do business with. Thank you, Andrew, for your part in providing a great venue for me and other caterers to recommend to our clients. Good luck and success to you in this fine venture of yours.
