We had an amazing wedding weekend at French's Point. My favorite part was being able to have all of our closest family and friends on site with us in nearby cottages for the entire weekend so we had extra quality time with everyone. I had been nervous about the location being hard to get to because we had so many people coming from out of town, many of them from the west coast, but everyone raved about French's Point and used it as an opportunity to explore the Maine coast. I did find it confusing at times to keep track of what the facility provides versus what you are responsible for providing - but this is no fault of the staff. They were very helpful in answering all my questions and made sure things went off without a hitch!

Everything about FP is perfect.

We traveled to Maine to be married, and we found it online. We signed sight-unseen and visited once prior to our wedding weekend. It was nerve-wracking, but now we cannot recommend FP enough!

The venue is gorgeous. 100% of our guests traveled from out of town, and many were annoyed to travel to Maine. Once everyone saw FP, they fell in love with it. It's the most beautiful spot, and many told us it was the prettiest wedding location they’d ever seen. The surrounding towns aren't the most scenic, but FP itself more than makes up for it. We ended up having guests stay in two nearby B&Bs or in Ellsworth, which is about 35 minutes away. (FP is 1 hour from Bar Harbor.)

You rent FP for 2+ days, so you can host multiple events (rehearsal dinner, reception, etc.)The grounds and estate are stunning. You have so many things there: getting ready rooms, honeymoon suite, ballrooms, and a covered tent. It’s all included. Then there's a gorgeous 13-bedroom rental home next door (with 13 bathrooms). It’s so much fun walking between FP and the house. There are fire pits, beaches, volleyball courts, and tons of land. We loved having our bridal party stay together.

The reason we LOVED FP was the customer service the week of the wedding. The team is amazing. They took care of every detail and once we communicated our plans, we handed it off to them & they handled every single thing. They are the most professional, yet warm people to work with!

And finally Erin, our day-of-wedding coordinator: we cannot rate her highly enough! She managed us, every vendor (the good & the bad), and our families with such grace. She handled every detail the week of the wedding, and we felt so cared for! She made our entire wedding weekend! Definitely hire her for day-of coordination!

It’s a splurge, but worth it for the grounds, the rental home, the customer service, and day-of coordination!
