Holiday Weekend Destination Wedding was perfect!
My husband and I are so happy we choose the Harborside Hotel as our wedding venue! We fell in love with Bar Harbor on our first visit and, when we got engaged, we knew we wanted to get married in town. We choose the Harborside Hotel because it provided a central location for our guests to conveniently experience Acadia and Bar Harbor with all the added amenities of a resort. Being from Philadelphia, we were also drawn to the history of the Bar Harbor Club and the 20th Century glamour the Stotesbury Ballroom offered. The views from the Bar Harbor Club provided a stunning background to our reception and a sunset over the harbor few of our guests will forget. We were also able to take most of our pictures on property which gave us the time to host an intimate cocktail hour with our wedding party on the roof deck of our Boathouse Suite, which is one of my favorite memories from the whole weekend! The venue gave us pictures that captured our wedding day and the beauty of Bar Harbor together, which we will treasure forever and now decorate our home. All the staff at the Harborside Hotel helped make the entire weekend come together better than we had hoped. Deb and Olivia specifically were exceptionally organized and helped us coordinate every detail at the venue, including coordinating our rehearsal dinner with Stewman’s and the boat cruise we hosted with he Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company. This was particularly helpful given we were planning a destination wedding and were only able to visit the venue in person twice before the wedding. They have years of experience with weddings in Bar Harbor, provided wonderful vendor recommendations and guided us through the whole process. We would absolutely recommend the Harborside Hotel to anyone looking to plan an event in Bar Harbor!Sent on 01/25/2020

The perfect wedding venue in Bar Harbor!
The Bar Harbor Club was an amazing venue for our May 2019 wedding! It was a bit daunting to have the wedding 500 miles away from home, but Olivia and Deb assisted with every step - We had a lot of questions and they were always quick to respond either by email or phone. They were so organized that by the time we got to Maine for our wedding weekend, we could relax and just enjoy being in such a beautiful spot with our family and friends!Sent on 01/27/2020
Everything, I mean everything, was seamless. The florist (the Bud Connection in Ellsworth) that the Bar Harbor Club partners with can do it all - Barb worked with us to create the perfect ambiance and was amazing at making our vision come to life. The on-staff pastry chef at Bar Harbor Club was incredible. The cake we requested was even more beautiful than anticipated - Eduardo is amazing!! The food and wait staff were first class, too!
We held a “Welcome Party" the night before our wedding at the Bar Harbor Club pool house. This was a great space for our wedding guests to gather for desserts and drinks overlooking the beach and ocean. The view from the pool house might just be the best view from the venue!
Long story short: the Bar Harbor Club was a perfect setting for our magical wedding weekend and we would 100% do it again!

Thank you, for everything!
My husband and I can't say enough great things about our entire wedding experience with the Harborside Hotel, Spa and Marina. The hotel and venue are conveniently located in downtown Bar Harbor with great views of the ocean and nearby islands. The spa was very accommodating to arrange for the entire bridal party to have our nails done together. The food during the cocktail hour, reception, and our farewell breakfast was all beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Beyond all of this, the one thing that continues to stand out is the impeccable service we received. Deb Jordan and Olivia Grandchamp were both fantastic to work with - knowledgable about local vendors, quick to respond to questions, and really made us feel like our wedding was the event of the summer. We will never forget Olivia getting drenched in a sudden downpour before the ceremony because she was literally out there holding everything together for us! Multiple guests even commented about the quality and professionalism of the service staff compared to other weddings they had been to. Thank you so much to the Harborside Hotel, Spa and Marina, for everything!Sent on 02/12/2020
