Me: "We both have huge Catholic families -- we're inviting over 200."
Priest: "You know, the folks at the Mariner's Center really do a nice job. I've been there for a number of large receptions. It's right in the Old Port."
Me: "Oh that's so great to hear -- we've already booked with them!"
Our reception at the Mariner's Center was fabulous. I comparison shopped. It is the best in So. Maine for a big indoor wedding.
The formal plated dinner was excellent and brought up efficiently as possible -- no one left hungry.
The space is incredibly versatile, as the photos on the Facebook page and home page will show you.
The price was right -- for 176 guests, full formal plated dinner (because the groom was anti-buffet), and a drink ticket redeemable for one drink (wine, beer, well or soda) in lieu of a party favor for all guests, the bill did not exceed $9,000. That price does not include cake or decorations, but does include service and linens. There were no sneaky fees (cake cutting fees, bottle opening fees, etc.). They were very transparent about costs.
Sarah Campbell, the banquet manager is really sharp and gave me great advice about planning and vendors. Devin the assistant manager also a great job managing the day, bustling my gown, bringing us snacks while we waited in the Billiard's Room before being announced, etc.
Few venues in the area have the abundance of natural light that the Mariner's Center offers (not even some pricey ones). Add some candles and your photos will be great -- you can't fake good light and those photos are your memory of the day! You'll want to look gorgeous!
I could not have been happier with my wedding day. Thank you, Mariner's Center!
