Atlantic Oceanside is the best venue that my wife and I could have chosen for our destination wedding in Bar Harbor. We loved this spot for a lot of reasons. Affordability, location, and level of attention that Lauren Annaldo, and the rest of the staff, provided us. Lauren was very responsive with our endless stream of emails and was always willing to work with us. We just celebrated our 1 year anniversary and were welcomed to Happy Anniversary cards and gifts from the staff. This just shows the level of attention you will receive at Atlantic Oceanside.
You cannot go wrong with the location as well. We used the 100+ year old Willows Mansion for the bridal party. Because we were able to fill up the Willows we also used this beautiful and historic building for our rehearsal dinner and our cocktail reception. While my bride and her bridesmaids spent the majority of our wedding day getting ready in the penthouse suite overlooking the bay, my party turned the 2 adjoining rooms into a full bar! We spent the day exploring around Acadia, swimming (in the pool and jumping off the dock into the bay), and just enjoying the day! (Full disclosure: the dock is not for swimming. Scenic boat tours only. Which is also fun!!)
So do your bride a favor and check out Atlantic Oceanside for your destination wedding! You, your bride, and your guest will be very happy. And remember guys, “Happy Wife = Happy Life”!

I can’t say enough good things about my wedding at AO. Everything from the smooth check in, immaculate rooms, warm and welcoming staff, delicious breakfast and top notch event staff made my entire event more perfect than I could have imagined. My guests haven’t stopped raving about the view, the food and the helpful staff! I’ll recommend this place for everything in the future! Thank you AO for everything!!
