    Very personal and professional service--accommodating our very different wedding and needs. We found Richard and Edmond to be extremely friendly and easy to work with. The building itself is historic and gorgeous, the perfect venue for weddings, especially interfaith ones! We had a lot of out-of-town guests, including some from India, Canada and The Hague, and all of them were very impressed with the venue, reception hall, and food. We were fortunate, indeed, to have found the perfect setting in the charming town of Lewiston, ME, for our Indian/American Wedding.

    The Gendron Franco Center is another of L/A's stunning buildings that has been preserved for generations to come. Their Performance Hall is absolutely breathtaking and is a fantastic place for a wedding ceremony. They also host concerts and performances -- a great opportunity to check it out!

    I had the fortunate opportunity to photograph a wedding at the Franco American Center in Lewiston, Maine this past fall. The venue is beautiful and was very accommodating to both myself and my clients. I would definitely recommend this wedding venue to future brides!
